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,

    I bought these BrooksBro Suede Moccasin

    With my size (8) - I couldn't even put my foot in, so I went to 8.5.
    When wearing thick workout sock, they still feel rather tight (as in not wide enough)

    Sales woman says they stretch. That true ? How much will such shoes stretch ?

    They will stretch, aprox a quarter of a size. If you need more, size up.

    Any moccasin constructed shoe I've had has stretched out in the forefoot (as have some others). If it's tight on your toes, don't worry. It'll form to your foot soon enough.

    But yeah, try them on with the socks you'll be wearing in them, and you shouldn't ever be wearing thick workout socks with those.

    Never, ever buy a shoe too small. The sock is the key to fit.

    You shouldn't be wearing thick socks with these and better yet, no socks at all. This is a summer shoe. Welcome to Styleforum.
