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

    Zippo makes one, actually. http://www.zippoblu.com/

    It's a little bulkier than a normal Zippo. I got on the Marlboro mailing list and they sent me one for free. They'll send you all kinds of free stuff if you're willing to kill yourself with their product, which I am more than willing to do.

    Ugh, their design department needs serious help. Those case designs are awful.

    Yeah, I agree. They don't fit in your 5th pocket nearly as well as a traditional zippo, either.

    This looks kind of cool, though:

    I dunno, drunk chicks usually seem to love it if you can pull off a few zippo tricks:
    Hahaha hell yeah we used to practice in undergrad. We had many uncool lighter fumbling moments but that guy has sick skills. He'd be a good closeup magician. That also pulls women.

    You can buy one of these:

    It's a butane insert that fits into a regular zippo case.
