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 definitely agree that a classic tuxedo looks much better than the one Pistol_Pete mentioned (in After Hours).

    But there is still something that I don't quite like about it: the number of buttons. One button just does not seem right to me... too few. Yes, yes, I am always talking about the number of buttons. Perhaps it is my fickle mind.

    Nothing against the other parts of a tuxedo, though. I especially like to see the sheen on the lapels as well as strip running down the side of the trousers. And yes, I like the cloth-wrapped buttons. Before I actually saw one face-to-face, I actually thought they were 'faceless buttons'...

    Still, perhaps the tuxedo should have something that stands out from the rest of the black-tie wearing crowd, although I cannot think of anything at the moment.

    Speaking of standing out, how about wearing tails for your wedding, Pistol_Pete? Do you guys think it is a good idea? Perhaps not, although it will definitely stand out, and white-tie looks good, too.

    Evening dress (or dinner dress) is a uniform. White tie only if everyone else is doing it.
