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

    Just bot some ravello PTBs at Alden NY... They were offering $50 off all cordovan, so the shoe came to $630 (from $680)... It basically covers the sales tax (though I spent most of the discount on shoe trees).

    I plan on adding the J Crew roughed out chukka then taking a break. Ill post my #8 longwings and the new ravellos soon

    I will say after wearing them for half a day they seem to have softened up a little. They were really hard this morning, such that I could hear my heel strike very clearly. Now they seem not quite as soft as I remember but not nearly as hard as they were this morning which makes me happy. Certainly comfortably wearable now which is good.

    Clearly your brothel creeping days are over [​IMG]

    haha...actually, after two days of wear they seem back to their normal old cushy self. Not sure why that is the case but it seems they just needed some wear to loosen back up thankfully.

    If I may ask - what is the average age of the shoe in your collection and how often do you wear each pair? These shoes are all in wonderful condition

    For comfort and durability for walking the streets of NYC year round, would you guys recommend a crepe or leather and commando sole?

    Flex welt sole. Or the neocork sole on most Indys.

    Comfort depends on having a good overall fit, mostly.

    I would vote for commando, in terms of year round.
