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,

    I thought it was at least three, maybe 4 or 5. Either way, they were only Vicuna Tom Ford ones anyway, no biggie.

    I don't wear a PS, never have (a SF no-no :D). So, I took them out and laid them on my bed. Barely looked at them, although I do know one was a Talbot.

    I took the only two that were in there and added one and a tie. My guess is the really great stuff was snapped up very early on. I also think that as the box goes on the quality of the contents will improve provided dues are generous.

    agreed. I like to think that most of us are pretty decent folks that want to see this go on with some success.

    Nore, did you take the T&A?


    I agree that people want this to go well, but have oft heard, "the road to hell is paved with good intentions."

    While it's not obligatory, I think the general gist is to pay the Tie Box forward with something(s) of equal or greater value.

    The only thing that I am confused about - other that Titsworth's Einstein's Riddle-like TSB2 proposal - is that through five people there are only six ties if I am counting correctly -and that should include Ed's seed and Wang's seed. My thinking is that the inventory should grow or at the very least stay the same if it's one in, one out, right? Am I missing something?

    People added pocket squares as well in lieu of adding a tie.

    Still not sure on the math though.

    I took a Panta and a Dolce & Gabbana, and added a NWT Kiton and a Hermes, plus a bunch of squares.

    Ahh, pocket squares! I forgot about pocket squares. And in all it does sound like the box has grown. I think my math is just bad.

    +1. When I got the box there were 6 plus one PS. I'm going to take 1 and beef it up with at least 3, as well as Kent Wang's contribution. If we all try to replace the number we take with the same number in equal value, and maybe add a donation of something else of decent quality, than we can all expect a great box next time.

    No offense but I think the pocket squares should be kept separate. Not everyone that wears a tie wears a PS.
