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

How were fashion canes traditionally carried and used?

    I was in the market for a new cane recently and one of my lady friends suggested getting a replica of the cane from the first Jurassic park movie. I got a cane shop to make it for me, with a real dead crane fly encased in a resin shell and fine wood. The cane helped break the ice with women in clubs, supermarkets, restaurants, anywhere.

    What I'm not so sure of is how I'm supposed to carry it if I am to remain in character. I'm 26, I don't need it because of an injury.

    Do I walk with it and plant it on the ground every step or two the way people who need it functionally do? Do I do a "pimp walk" like Snoop Dog? Do I carry it in front of me like Antonio Banderas did in "The Mask of Zorro" when he was Don Alejandro? How were fashion canes used traditionally?

    As is true of all questions (including "what is the meaning of life?"), your answer is always "pimp walk". Always.
