    Kingkong, you'll find $60 worth of wear in it no problem I think.

    LA Guy, I think we should have some sort of collective on what "Styleforum Red" is. Personally I dont think the red bars on our interface would be very wearable as a hoodie and I doubt it would go with many SF member wardrobes.

    Mark me down for a hoodie. I dont think I'll take a belt, as much as I love the EG belt, I just don't think I need another.

    Okay, how about a darker, more maroon/wine type of color? Styleforum maroon?

    any chance the hoodies could be thermal-lined?
    could you also elaborate on the perfect for "summer evenings"?

    i'm interested, but would i get to use it a lot since i'm going tothe east coast next year?


    The hoodies are not thick, fleece hoodies. They are summer hoodies, made out of a good quality organic cotton jersey rather than a fleece. You wouldn't get a lot of use out of it in January, but would between March and September...

    On my monitors the menu bar and bars separating posts are in fact maroon/wine, more than red, and this is the color I want.

    Mysteriously, the sweatshirt on his web page appears to already be in Styleforum Maroon! (or close to it) [​IMG] [​IMG]

    ^ I think that color looks good with indigo (#4B0082, according to w3schools.com, but I think it's more like #26176F).

    I'll probably take a hoodie but might like to have a better idea of the color before that. The belt is tempting but I already have one so it would really depends how much I'm into the new color choices.

    I'd probably go for a hoodie in a darker red/maroon myself, after I see the color.

    I have a hoodie in a maroon color from Michael already, in my sample case in the office. Maybe I'll put it on my form and take a picture Monday. As for pictures of belt colors and whether it would be possible to get detachable belt straps, I'll try to get you guys an answer by the end of next week. That may be little tougher though.

    Just and update.

    Fok.

    Yea, the only thing I dont like about that maroon is that its a really similar (exact?) to the really generic AAA / Hanes / whatever maroon color. I'd like to see something with more uniqueness to it.

    Thoughts?

    It (the maroon) is darker and has a lot more brown to it then the generic Hanes, Lee, etc... For example, I have a "The Cast" hoodie in the "faded wine" color, (essentially a washed out version of the Lee 50/50 maroon), and the material MJK uses is significantly more brown.

    That sounds cool to me. I'm definitely down.
