    Bumping this as I also need my account activated. What's with the secretive nature of the forum?

    It has always been the same, a little more private than SF or AAAC but worth persevering with. Nothing secretive.

    London Lounge is a good site concentrating on higher end bespoke and entirely free of newcomers asking if some item bought from TaT or whoever actually fits or what they should wear to an interview.

    That's fine but I'm actually interested in bespoke. I don't see how hiding the forum from non-registered users comports with the goal to educate people about bespoke, which is supposedly one of his goals according to his response in an interview: "The Internet can really help young men understand what bespoke tailoring is about. Especially because nowadays, the terms “Made to measure” and “Bespoke” are often used in a misguiding fashion. As a result, beginners are sometimes a bit lost. The problem is that the real tailors suffer from this. That is why we must use the internet to put them to the fore."

    I registered last week and it used to say that my account was inactive, but now it's saying that I specified a username that does not exist - does this mean that they rejected me? If so, how exclusive is this place and how do you get in if all they have to go off is a username?

    The London Lounge is as dull as style forums come, but full of smart info. All you have to do is ask.

    The London Lounge.

    It is not a breeze, but a full blown flurry of fresh air.

    And free of Porkers.

    If you don't know what the poem of Sir John Betjeman is, you shouldn't even be here.

    They don't want what they post showing up on Google. There are many forums who only offer password protected access to their content.

    All my best,

    ? my account at LL from pre lehman still works.

    p.s., david, most forums on older softwares bans direct google acess to servers. huddler seems to doing the opposite but huddler only hosts/manages for the super mega hobbiest sites with good revenue gen.

    As if there was some reason to hide it? It seems like the kind of thinking that is contributing to the decline of tailored menswear. I already have my own account there so no big deal to me.

    Maybe they don't want to attract droves of members writing endlessly about their "new wardrobe for a new job" conundrums :D

    If LL allowed its results in Google, that might be the effect.

    LL is not about #tailored #menswear but closer or exclusively bespoke menswear.

    And for those who are curious, Styleforum is always open for new members and new vendors.
