1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    Is it true if I call this Mauro person at the denim bar, I'll get New Standards at 120+s&h? The denim bar is this right? http://www.thedenimbar.net/

    To all the curious comments about the Johnbull SC003s: It's kind of like a Nudie Slim Jim. The back pockets and yoke are both low, and the rise is middle. The back rise is kind of high, but it looks good when you pull it down. My only complaints are: non-selvage, no leather patch. I don't really consider it an "entry level" jean, because I have lots of other super high-quality jeans, selvage and Japan-approved and all that, but my Johnbulls are without a doubt the best fitting pair I have, so I stick with those ones.

    So what do you think of them so far, quality wise? Worth the price? I am really tempted by the SC005 (flarez!1!11 et.c.) P.s. they look good btw!

    They're underpriced, IMO.

    Is the SC002 just the selvage equivalent?

    Nah. I wish, otherwise I would have bought them instead. the SC002 is a completely different cut. They're a semi-slim repro cut. Not quite as flattering, from what I've seen.

    very nice, brian sd. wow, that's a great fit. not everyone can pull off those jeans since they are so slim, but you wear them perfectly.

    btw, i considered them an "entry-level" jean because of the price-point alone. could be the best cost performance we've seen considering style and quality. but, you're right. no-selvage and non-leather patch in exchange for superb fit....

    Nice list. These jap jeans like iron heart are much cheaper outside the U.S, which is the reason I don't want to buy them---kinda feel like being cheated.

    much cheaper? i guess..but you take out international shipping which is like a billion dollars and the difference isn't that much. not as much as going there..

    Hey pal, you know in most of the cases the shipping fee is going to be around 20 bucks. And, if you buy a pair of jeans over 200 dollars, shouldn't they offer free shipping?[​IMG]
