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

    I've seen a good amount of the newer Lulu stuff with very subtle branding. Black glossy logos and small metal logos on the lower left back of the jacket that are easily missed.

    thought it might be some weirdo japanese designer i guess

    Also is this Sierra Designs worth anything? Doesn't match the other ones in the thread so I'm guessing no but would appreciate any help.

    Edit: upon further research it seems the Acne is a women's and the Adidas is a men's

    Here's an interesting piece. Sea lion belt.

    I assume this is no longer legal as I can't find anything online.
    Part of a nice belt collection I found.

    Okay. Just one more thing. Ethrift arrived today from our favorite reseller.
    [​IMG]
    Okay now my pics suck but this is a beautiful lavender. Hers of course made it look grey. And perhaps she may have missed part of the title. Canali yes but...
    [​IMG]
    Unfortunately this may be available as it is a 58 regular and fits like a slim 42. I will get back to guys tomorrow. Not thrift price by any means but definitely a great value.

    Are there any threads on this forum that list good thrift/discount stores in certain cities?

    What's it like to go to thrift stores and find great stuff?

    I live in Minneapolis, so it doesn't happen here anymore :embar:
