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

    It was hidden behind a letter, a full page written in metallic ink, the gist of which was, "believe in yourself". I wish I would have saved it, but it's already in a dumpster.

    This is the most brilliantly pithy response possible. Seriously, +unreasonablylargenumber to you.

    Thanks, bro! I think you're right about the square. Still haven't quite gotten the hang of that whole thing yet. But good judgment can only come from experience, which is nothing more than the exercise of bad judgment. So I'll keep trying!

    I'd assume, like most things in the universe, it's gravity.

    Finally got to hit the circuit today. Left behind a Canali corduroy suit in my size that finally went half price. It was still $125 :angry:

    Corneliani Easy Jacket and an Hermes flannel shirt. Also an awesomely floppy Borsalino Panama hat.......

    Hermes, Ferragamo, Ferragamo, Ferragamo, Talbott BOC and on top a Zegna and a Talbott Seven Fold. The glasses are Oliver Peoples which have prescription lenses.

    Pretty gross, unlikely to find anything good, and probably illegal

    Thrift stores are a good cause and give you the chance to find Hermes flannels and ties for $5

    IMO, if you're serious, there should be another thread dedicated to it. Personally, for hygenic reasons, I wouldn't partake, but others might.

    Greetings from Honolulu ! 1st stop---> Found a Brioni MOP microcheck button down. Sweet. Left 3 cool Dunhill shirts (all had monograms on the chest pocket) Can you remove those without "ghost letters" meaning the stitches leave the outline of the letters? 2nd stop - 3 Wilkes-Bashford shirts with pit stains and a beautiful L Borrelli with about 50 spaghetti sauce stains on it [​IMG]
