    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.

    From my convo with Mercury the wjk hoody you have is an old model they aren't making at the moment. It's replaced with a raglan version. Hence you are lucky you got it, I'm jealous.

    Re suus, Raul is super nice. Did you see any ccp in the store?

    The detail pics of the Layer-0 look cool, but forgive me for saying it, it looks a little long in body and sleeves. Perhaps better lighting and a different angle might change all of that.

    I'll try to take some outdoor pictures when it gets colder. The sleeves are borderline okay (not quite to my knuckle) esp. considering all the other brands have super long sleeves and I have relatively short arms. I agree that the coat is a little long, even for the intended cut. Maybe I'll try to get it shortened eventually, but I don't have a tailor I trust at the moment.
    And I was intending to just wear it like a cocoon in the winter to survive the cold.

    @sinnedk Another late note on the hoodie topic, I own the KKA piece from SS15. Really nice slim cut and good lengths for taller guys. The hand pockets can kind of flare open, but it doesn't bother me.

    I just picked this up in berlin from oukan for around 170$usd.
    Great shop, lots of accessible pieces and good staff.
    Its less of a hoodie, but the high turtle neck thing is pretty fun, and theres some good details and fabric mixing. Hits that cozy-wizard aesthetic.
    Sized up 2 for a roomy fit.

    Also went through darklands berlin, that was quite a retail experience. Such a amazing space and presentation.

    It is... and if by 'lucky' you mean 'were OK with buying it second-hand,' then I sure am. There's this one on Rakuten that I'm pretty sure is the same: http://global.rakuten.com/en/store/kind-u/item/576815000708/ but sounds like you have something good coming your way.

    Didn't notice any CCP at suus, just A1923, ma+, m_moria... and a ton of beautiful winter coats that seemed borderline too warm for Spanish winters, including a gorgeous Forme one I would have bought if I hadn't just picked up a long coat last winter.

    Also wanted to echo what was recently said about Darklands... crazy place to spend an hour or two.

    Crosspost from Recent Purchases, here's an English documentary about Cornelian Taurus (leather goods) and Japanese tanneries (Shinki) in English. Very cool products, nice staff, highly recommended viewing:

    Part 1
    Part 2

    Also pretty cool soundtrack by The Album Leaf on the program hah

    Love my Cornelian Taurus stuff, excellent quality for the price

    Anyone know how tall Simone is? I was just wondering based on that whole design to your own build propensity that artisans seem to have.

    He's a tall guy. I'd say over 6'.

    I've never met him face to face though only seen him out and about during Paris fashion weeks.

    I've met him and I'd say he's a good 6'2. Maybe more.

    I'd say he is 5"11.5 remember he is wearing heels to create the illusion of 6+

    Have you met him????
    I've been drinking with him in a bar. I'm 5'11 and he's taller than me.

    Tbh who cares. He's not a giant and he's not a midget.
