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

    These are the only ones I like, and maybe the indys. I posted a BIG close-up picture from the horween blog a few pages ago. I am curious to see how they age!

    Anyone buying any of the natural chromexel models? [​IMG]

    The attraction they have is they can be colored and darkened.

    Thanks.

    How do your feet fit when wearing Berlutis? and in comparison, how do your boots/shoes fit on the trubalance/Barrie lasts? Snug? Or with space.


    Berlutis are snug but nothing bad. Both Alden lasts are by comparison roomier but not longer or wider.

    Thanks a great deal. Would you people have any recommendations for a good place (online) where I can buy Alden shell boots?

    I like the naked eyelets. They work surprisingly well. I'd also like this style of shoe in #8 on a different last (Plaza or Hampton) with the commando sole.

    I love the suede shortwings. These look casual and comfortable, appropriate for many situations. I'm going to have to consider.

    Re: the natural chromexel: I agree that the color doesn't look particularly nice when they are new. But is the idea that with time and wear they take on a different, darker color? Or are you supposed to deliberately darken them?

    I am.
    I have a pair of similar shoes on order which are supposed to ship in 2 weeks. I'm excited! I've seen a swatch of the leather in person and I think it looks great. It is NOT a dressy leather in any way but I think it will work well as a boot or a "work shoe". The version I'm waiting on is the Indy shoe but the sole and welt will be a little different from the one in the picture.

    I've been wanting some variation of an Indy shoe and I think this leather will work well for it. Plus, I "designed" the version I'm talking about and that makes me VERY excited. It's my fist one and I hope it looks good!
