Hot Topics Negotiating As much as StyleForum is about expensive clothing, it’s also a great venue to learn about business and ask questions of those more experience than one. And thus we have this thread, which is about how to approach the topic of inquiring after a raise. Should you be demanding? Polite? Firm? Share your thoughts! Red Wings Several years ago Red Wing’s Gentleman Travelers boots helped usher in an appreciation of the classic American bootmaker in fashion circles, and while many people have move beyond workwear, there are still many devoted followers of the brand.

It’s an almost 70s-style British look complete with wide lapels, but not limited to the decade. Cool.
