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,

    The Styleforum Team

    They were very good with him, they let him play with the tools and explained things, he was in heaven.

    Now this is how to cut production costs. Child labor, will your benefits ever cease?

    These photos are wonderful.

    I also feel that I have a far better appreciation as the recent labor unrest involving the youth of France.

    Born under Philippe de Villiers' fountain pen, warning of an invasion of Polish plumbers in France after the directive Bolkenstein's implementation.
    My son has Polish ancestry.
