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

    Found a pair of brand new Tricker's black velvet/red satin lined slippers with crown embroidery in 10C, definitely one of the best things I've found in a good while.

    I'm a 12, so if anyone is interested I'm up for traders and such.

    Stuart McGuire shell PTBs and a Cooper A2 jacket. They're both in excellent condition and neither is my size. 12 B/D on the shells and 42 on the A2.

    Had my best finds ever this weekend. All 15.5/39.

    The Sulka, borrelli, and steffano ricci are all spoken for (in fact I only bought them because I knew a SF member wanted them.)

    5 Sulka

    [​IMG]

    3 Steffano Ricci (one 100% silk with a yellow pattern :laugh: )

    [​IMG]

    2 handmade Borrelli

    [​IMG]

    1 Brioni light blue oxford cloth

    [​IMG]

    1 Turnbull and Asser light purple plaid

    [​IMG]

    No suits or pants that I could find from the same guy. :(

    I did find a zegna db brown plaid suit with peak lapels for $0.99 though :D

    Is there any Floridian thrift hunter one here? I just want to know where are the spots in Florida, the ones that you know you will find something worth bragging.

    Florida's a big state. I visit my family in the southwest often. I'll let you know if I find any good spots when I go down there next.

    Perhaps he was run over by a car as he was most evidently blind, too.

    Nobody is going to post the whereabouts of their honey hole spots on a public forum so you can take the lazy man's way. Do your research like the rest of us had to do. Sorry if I sound like a prick, but it's posts like this that are a huge pet peeve of mine.

    Found an Oxxford SC tonight. It is a size 40 (that actually seems to fit like a size 40) and side vented if anyone wants it.
