1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

Are jackets made of heavy cloth usually (or ever) canvassed?

    I have two heavy jackets (flannel and tweed), looks like from decent tailors, but none of them are canvassed. The thing is, I also don't think they are fused - the cloths are so heavy that they have the right shape on their own. Which makes me wonder in general - are jackets made of such heavy cloths ever canvassed, or is there simply no need?
