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 recall that before SF went down there was a thread with someone asking about unstructured jackets. Anyone interested in such would be well served by visiting virtual clothes horse (Lance) who has a new shipment of Borellis. I just received mine from Lance, and it was better than expected -- and I expected a lot.

    Are you sure you're not confusing un-structured with quarter-lined? I don't recall seeing any unstructured Borrelli on his site. I could be wrong though.

    To me, unstructured means absolutely no padding in the shoulder. The Borrelli shoulder is very soft, but I wouldn't call it un-structured.

    Regardless, I'll agree with you on the quality of stuff Lance has on offer. I just got a Borrelli from him and I have 2 more coming soon.

    there is just a whisper of shoulder padding -- essentially none and no form of canvassing.

    I should have made clear that I didn't mean to say all of his Borrellis are like this, but some are, e.g., tweeds.
