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,

    Just picked up a box of RA Estupendos. These were a regional release a couple years ago, and I was fortunate enough to pick up an unbroken box from a collector I know.

    These are widely available and have lots of mixed reviews as well as some construction issues.

    The RA Estupendos is a great cigar when the draw is not an issue. I have been lucky to not have to break my 25-ct box yet, but I have had very tight draws on a couple fivers I purchased separately. Hope that you got a good box!

    Also, H. Upmann Half Coronas are in stock at Puro. Kop now before they sell out.

    Nice '08 Juan Lopez #2 from a cab I bought in '09. Makes it taste that much better.

    Those sold out so fast. I wanted to look up how much they were after I saw the post and they were already gone.

    Honestly they're pretty fucking pricey for 30 minute smokes. I think they should be priced around 100 max.

    Had a little mold on one bc these idiots don't break the seals and over humidify them so I put one out to dry to smoke at lunch tomorrow to see how it is. Probably won't dry out enough by then.

    If he's been smoking for ten years then he'll bring his own cigars because nothing you have will be nearly as good.

    Thought it more as a suprise. But maybe I should skip it since it would be bad maybe anyways?
