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

    I thought 341 was supposed to be a bit roomier?
    It is in the width and instep compared to the 348. Not so compared to the 325 (in the width) or 337 (in length and width).

    Took delivery today of 2 Gieves & Hawkes shoes. A navy monk (which I have been wanting forever) and a purported black shell cordovan. They certainly feel and look like shell, but can anyone confirm? [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    both look to be fairly nice leather, but not shell.

    ^ Wear the black shoes and crease ;em. Then post a pic, it will be easy to confirm.

    Beautiful shoe - reminds me of those monks that Mr. Monty owns, except his have a medallion. May I ask where you got these?

    Impossible to tell 100% from the pictures.

    First is calf, second horse if I had to guess.

    This picture http://i639.photobucket.com/albums/u...r/DSC05669.jpg

    shows creasing like leather in the toe box, perhaps my eyes are bad.

    The first one is calf, yes. The question is the black one.

    Dont want to get em bent up yet..[​IMG] but will do. I flexed my arch once in them, and it gave me a shell bubble, not a calf wrinkle. But im no expert.

    Sure thing- and Monty's Vass' are what set me on this mission. I got them from Sausages.

    Yes, calf for sure the first, but the black was the question.

    If the trees are the best thing about about a pair of shoes, you know that something must be wrong.

    Yes. Dovers are awesome. I just acquired a pair on the 82.

    I also really like my Ashbys
