1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was. I'd like to keep you abreast of the improvements we've made over the past few days.
    @notification emails have been added, in response to user requests

    Attached images are now Full Size by default

    Users are now all allowed three (3) links in their signature files,

    SSL certification is now in place so you can all browse securely.

    The server has been reconfigured so that site speeds will improve.

    Notice: Right now the site is slow because we are fixing all the images from the past 4 months. Many of you noticed that these were missing, and we are fixing that problem now. Unfortunately, it is taking up a lot of resources and causing the site to be slow.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Please address any questions about using the new forum to support@styleforum.net

    Cheers,

    The Styleforum Team

    If lovin' you is wrong I don't wanna be right?

    Seriously - in my book you actually can get away with it because the colors are so simple and well matched and the shoes are black.

    Not going to win you any SF prizes but I'm pretty sure little children won't run away from you shrieking in terror either.

    Thank you Uncle Mac for your care recommendations. I put one coat of paste wax on the toes and they are looking much better. The creases are still 'blooming' the lovely white waxy substance from the tannage so the rest of the shoe got no polish. And btw your shoes today have a particularly nice color/patina - very nice indeed.

    nephew,
    thank you and keep up the good work because it will provide big dividends in the future

    Is it appropriate to wear black loafers with colored socks?

    Yes, as long as the color is black. That's what Henry Ford would say (however, Tom's point of view could be different).

    I would says, yes to few colors (red, gray, light blue can work too).

    Does this mean I'm not allowed to post this??? :)

    WARNING: EDITORIAL CONTENT AHEAD:

    These are 8 year old Paul Smith socks from when he was at the creative apex of his multi-colored striped look on socks, shirts, suit linings, etc. I got these in his Milan store. It was a fun, fresh look, eight years ago. Sadly :(, the quality of PS socks is on the decline and once everybody started offering and wearing boldly patterned, brightly colored and expressive socks with everything and everywhere it just didn't have the same appeal to me anymore. It seems so "played out" that it now shows almost a lack of imagination in more cases than not. (As in, "I don't know how to coordinate patterns and colors so I will just wear wild colored socks and say they are GTH or FU").

    To me, socks are an accessory and should compliment the overall outfit. So while it is fun to wear colorful and expressive socks to a party or when you are going completely casual way too many guys seem to be wearing them with what appears to be an otherwise "serious" outfit and the socks simply detract from a well coordinated look.
