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 feel different on these particular points.

    Socks: Happy socks are garbage as stated elsewhere. They don't hold up very well at all.

    Belts: I've had two since they opened in Soho (NYC) and they both feel cheaper than other belts that I have and it's tough to get a good size on them since they don''t do it by waist size.

    T-Shirts: I think you're better off with American Apparel on this one, but there is a price difference in the two.

    Pretty sure Uniqlo does the specific sizing for the items on each page. Just check their measurements.


    Edit: just realized they aren't on the website (from what I can tell)

    I think this was discussed earlier in the thread. If you search Tasmanian only in this thread it should be pretty easy to find. Think there were pictures too.

    Regarding heattech sizing, I think if you're wearing it solely as an under layer you should go TTS. But I wear my heattech on its own sometimes on brisk days (I live in Cali) and I sized up one. I'm a typical M across the board, but for heattech I go for an L and it fits near perfectly. Of course, I don't get the skin tight fit that some people were talking about earlier in the thread. It fits more like a normal t would. My heattech has also been through multiple washes and it doesn't really stretch or shrink all too much. Really good buy though.

    Heattech is TTS. And I find Japanese sizing way better for me, M in US - XL in Japanese. It's more shruken so length is better for me

    For heattech wear large normally and sized up to x-large for a regular shirt fit. It's a bit longer and a touch looser than their regular large t's, but I didn't want a baselayer fit.

    I'll continue to load up on oxfords whenever I'm in Asia. The body and sleeve length fits much better than US ones.

    Received several items today. The standout is this:

    Still available in XL (I bought in L for a close fit). Very nice material feel all around - absolutely steal of a price on this piece. Color is most accurate in my second photo. Probably not warm enough for any serious winters, but perfect for a chilly night in the Bay.

    Got the same jacket in black, didn't think it was all that nice and felt pretty flimsy. Good price but not a "steal of a price" imo

    I returned

    Steve, horses for courses. What will you get instead, if anything?

    Nothing at the moment, just ordered pretty much everything from +J that showed up online. It just felt much flimsier and than the other +J stuff down I had before. $60 is a solid and you probably won't find anything better at the price range though
