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.

    I didn't say anything else LUC wasn't durable. I'd wager any of the non-knit pieces are just as "tough" as any of the other stuff mentioned here. Who cares anyway?

    People for whom $1000 on pants or whatever represents a significant expenditure?

    I have lots of raw hem stuff from Zam and he always backs it up with thin ribbon to control the chaos. I've done the same to some of my other raw edge designer stuff as well. Its pretty easy if you can hold a straight seam with a sewing machine.

    picked up some Devoa knit silk pants today too. first pair of Devoa bottoms I've ever tried. I could do without the dangling metal cock-knocker on the fly zip but It looks like it has a simple clasp to remove that without damaging anything. Leaving it on seams like an invitation for damaging things.

    Guys, just take off your LUC before getting into a bar fight. It's not that complicated.

    i have luc jeans that have split at the side when i put my hand in the pocket too hard... and all the buttons have been resewn on... but the fabric seems very hearty. So the recommendation to choose based on fabric may not be 100% reliable.

    I've had the crotch blow out entirely on an old pair of LUC but they started out as a really delicate soft denim. I've got them patched up with an excessive amount of stitches and they're on their way to becoming crust pants. I don't really mind that

    rarely wear it as is, and will have fewer chances to wear it in the future

    Spoke to Zam earlier and he mentioned that over the next few days he's planning to push a lot of archival stuff up to final sale. 50-80% discounts off retail. He's just opened up a Brooklyn storefront and I guess he needs the space cleared out.

    Ended up grabbing that KK Attachment jacket that nicelynice posted a few pages back. Just received it today, its definitely some substantial leather. Similar or greater thickness than my FW15 heavy horse incarnation.

    Tossed it on for an initial fit check and a few photos. Will plan to post some better detailed pictures later. Its a bit snug in the pits and over all a pretty slim fit, but I live down in Texas so the desire to layer is generally pretty low. Excited to break this one in.

    Odd thing to note, the material tag (washing instructions, material, ect..) looks to have been cut out of the inside pocket (the size 3 tag remains in there).
