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.

    The only things I have with patch pockets are CDiem/L'maltieri lab coats and a few Individual Sentiments jackets/coats.

    You're probably right. I actually did find a pair in my size but it's more expensive, so figured i'd give alteration some thought.

    In that vein – IC: M.A+ Raw Silk 5-pocket, Black, sz 46, excellent condition. PM for more info

    One of Amadei's classic fabrics... soft but textured with luxurious handfeel, rare to see in black. Bought from the owner of Sartorialoft.

    Only selling as i found another pair in non-black that matches my wardrobe better....

    Similar pic from re-porter to get an idea of things –

    Shoulders are tight and armholes are high so sizing up by one can address those points. The shoulders look relaxed though along with the overall look of the jacket.

    They are fairly slim across the shoulders and tts around the trunk. I really liked the pattern that I tried on at l'Eclaireur, but it was too tight around the shoulders and a bit loose through the lower torso. ymmv, of course.

    I haven't, but I've handled her leather bags and they are excellent. You can tell from the all the hand stitching on that jacket, but they have a very handmade, "arts and crafts" type feel. That jacket caught my eye as well, I wish I could see it in person, only have her bags and non-leather jackets in Tokyo. She used to be the head tailor for CCP (and pattern cutter for All Saints, heh, guess ya gotta pay the bills)

    She seems pretty approachable (she's on like, LinkedIn and teachers pattern-making courses) if you're interested enough to have one made.

    She also worked for Rick if I'm not I'm not getting my stories switched up. She's quite skilled and well-known in the industry.

    Thanks for the info. I did contact her directly. Currently, her stuff is only in Japan and Australia. I just wonder how the jacket fits.

    Pretty constricting across the back but I'm sure if I wore mine more it would stretch out. PN/P were nice enough to get Alessio's shop to lop off a couple inches on the cuffs before sending it to me. That said, I do have fairly short arms so I'm not sure if that would be an issue for most folks.

    This custom sleeve / jacket length option for Layer-0 leathers sounds mighty tempting...

    Don't worry, I'm just going to live vicariously through you. Leathers aren't really my thing.

    Also, quick IC on the LUC one cuts in my sig. My calves want some room to breath.

    The last MTM purchase you made did not go so well.
