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,

    Minus the cargos. Can't wear them and be preppy. Not that Chulillo is attempting the prep thing, but he does use a lot of the elements.

    There's a kind of sharp dressed Euro thing that's related to preppy, but not preppy.

    And yes, only time cargoes appear for a true prep is in service time photos accompanied by an airplane or some sort of impressive naval boat and a rakishly tilted cap.

    Chulillo is looking great, indeed.

    Post more NOBD. I admire your approach to CBD, especially your simple but versatile blue, brown, cream color palette.

    You in Holland, SB? Where are you staying and where are you planning to go?

    I'm in Amsterdam, unfortunately for work. We're staying very near Centraal Station. Mainly just walking and riding bicycles around the city. We tried to go to some museums on Monday, but the lines were incredibly long. Took a canal boat tour yesterday afternoon and went for a run along the waterfront and along some of the canals. After taking the bus to the office yesterday, we decided to rent bikes instead for today and tomorrow. A bit sweatier, but about the same amount of time and much more enjoyable.

    I'm open to recommendations for things to do. It looks like we've checked off the to-do list for work, so tomorrow is likely wide open.

    If you've not been able to see it before, the newly remodeled Rijksmuseum is well worth the wait - both the building and the art. Ditto the Van Gogh Museum, around the corner. (The Stedelijk is a bit more of an acquired taste.)

    If you wish to get out of town, and can do it, it's the season to see Keukenhof, that large and lovely advertisement for the Dutch tulip industry. It may be a giant advert, but it's quite gorgeous in season.

    Thanks, B. The Rijksmuseum was one of the ones we tried on Monday. The line was insane. Maybe we'll give it another go tomorrow.

    My advice is to go early, and yes, the lines can be quite long, but I think that they move reasonably well. I was in Amsterdam just after the Rijksmuseum re-opened, and it seems that the hysteria to see the place has continued.

    Sleeves are usually peaking out a bit - they got caught up in the photos.

    Thank you, I really like it too.

    hahaha

    Thank you very much, mate, it's very kind of you to say so.

    Haha, I know cargos are not for everyone but I just happen to love them. I have been raised in a prep enviroment all my life so I guess that rubs off in the end. But I have dressed almost the same way since High School really... my style (or the way I dress) has suffered very little alterations over the years.

    Thanks.

    yes sir. swapped the stock black mesh band for this metal mesh. Added a bit of weight, but it looks more at home for my daily work wear.

    Here's an older pic of the jacket (with a different shirt):
