1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We hope you’re as excited as we are to hang out in the new place. There are more new features that we’ll announce in the near future, but for now we hope you’ll enjoy the new site.

    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.

    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,

    Fuck POLO. How about worrying about raising your own net worth because thanks to you sheep Ralph Lauren's net worth is 7.5 Billion. After buying his cheaply made in China bullshit now he wants you to buy his vintage cartoon POLO Bear. Hip Hop is who pushed him to billion dollar status while the only status you have is when you update your Facebook. Do you think Ralph Lauren gives a fuck about hiphop beyond our dollars? When hip hop wakes up and starts owning RL stock, when Ralph Lauren acknowledges and thanks hip hop and when he starts having his clothes made in America and create some American jobs then and only then I will get off his back

    @Jackin': Troll.

    Polo RL is a good brand from which acceptable products spring!

    Granted, it's by far not the best one can do, but most of us can afford it and (again) is great quality for the price.
    For those reasons, Lauren should have a good name for himself.

    Great post. People love to overpay for labels.
