    We hope you’re as excited as we are to hang out in the new place. There are more new features that we’ll announce in the near future, but for now we hope you’ll enjoy the new site.

    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.

    Without further ado I declare Europrep the winner of the geometric sock challenge. :slayer:
    Now it is your duty to come up with a new challenge idea for next week :puzzled:

    Many thanks Jazz. I'll put the thinking cap on and get back to everyone shortly. Just know that I am currently on vacation in a sunny place, so my state of mind is spring/summer oriented. Even though I will be back in Boston by Tuesday, I will probably be forcing the warmer weather gear.

    We are having the warmest winter on record here in the bay area, unfortunately also a drought to go with it. I'm up for the warm weather challenge. :nodding:

    Thank you for your kind words, really. But I have the good fortune to wear them every day =) ... but these are not Carmina. I'm an old craftsman from Milan who now no longer works.

    Thank you for your kind questions about my shoes and my pants. The pants made them my tailor bespoke Mimmo Pirozzi of Naples. Do you like? The shoes are instead of an old craftsman from Milan who now no longer works.

    Wow. Did not know that --very cool. I think it is great that you can wear such beautiful footwear everyday. Most of the rest of us must be restrained in our selections.

    I simply bend very slightly forward to let the bottom of the trousers lift to reveal the socks and reach down with the arm that is holding the phone.
    The phone at that point will be upside down and will automatically adjust in the upside-down position.
    The angle is allowing me to see the screen and adjust the framing and click to shoot.

    It's a lot easier than it seems and does not require any awkward pose... [​IMG]

    P.S. nice trousers!
