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,

    Hello Gents,

    I just purchased a nice (imho) of loafers off of ebay and though I thought I had a few ideas for what to wear them with, I'm starting to second guess myself.

    I would never wear them with a suit and I don't think they are quite sporty enough to wear with my jeans. I do have a few nice pairs of Mabitex slacks they might work with. Anyway, I'm open to suggestions.



    Help!

    I don't like the black (?) and brown two-tone look to them. They also look a bit too old-man for my tastes. I feel like these shoes would most often be paired with billowy double pleated khakis. As you obviously won't be wearing them like that I think they would do alright with a pair of slacks in stone or some khaki derivative. Hard for me to imagine pairings as I don't much care for them.

    Hmmm. ... billowy, double pleated khakis...YIKES! Not in this lifetime.:crazy: I actually thought the two tone sort of helped make them look a little less "old man like". I'm 50 so I can get away some old man steez on occassion (bow ties, seersucker etc.) However, I always like to freshen up those look with nicely tailored items. So again, billowy just wont' do.

    Tassel loafers can look good with the right last, but these are pretty hideous. The black and brown are an ugly clash.
