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

    in London he used to dress in tailored outfits. My wife often said his style was too ostentatious for a refined man. She showed me this picture and said that he looks like a crook. I don´t agree. Do you? She even challenged me to dress like him in public. [​IMG]

    No, he doesn't look like a crook. Looks much worse.

    I'm gonna get flak for this but I can't stand behind ascots.
    Maybe I'm too close minded but they are just too girly.

    A bit more of the Western-wannabe-Cowboy meets City Slicker, IMHO. Not such a good look, again, IMHO.

    It's a very individual style. I don't think he looks bad in some of the posted looks, although I see where your wife is coming from with the "crook" comment. I would have used "ruffian" or perhaps even more appropriately, "dandy highwayman" (pace Adam Ant) [​IMG] Strongly suspect anyone copying it will come a cropper. I say this as someone who in the past has used a ladies silk scarf as both an impromptu ascot, and as a tie. Fun experiments, but no to repeating them. Also, there will be a lot of guys trying to do the knotted neckerchief look this year, because IIRC it featured heavily in a Tom Ford lookbook. I wouldn't try to follow the crowd on this.

    she knows him better than I do, and keeps saying that he just pretends to be younger than he is to hide his bad temper. I think that´s ok. [​IMG]
