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 suppose now with all the denim hype you can get real black denim where the warp threads are white just like blue denim? I used to have them years ago and they had an interesting white against black fade in the main spots.

    I also used to have jeans with a double lapped stitched seam on the outside as well as inside. I don't see them around now, but my current denim knowledge is restricted to peering at people on PT and cafes.

    I've got a pair of 3sixteen ST220x and also some Rogue Territory Stealth SKs which I love. I'd pick the Rogues over the 3sixteens if I had to. Check out Blue Owl Workshop, who sell both and have free shipping

    I had Acne New Cash max but they were pretty average. Actually, I have two pairs. Waste of money. I recently got a pair of 3sixteen SL-220x from Blue Owl. Real happy with them.

    Agreed. With my last 2 PJ commissions, I asked for and got more drape in the chest.

    Hey Fox, just ordered a Type A-1 in Seal Brown HH from Aero, so now, like you, I'm waiting on 2 jackets, including the Kelso.

    And I thought a 4-6 wk wait for a PJ suit was bad.

    I'm getting a navy peacoat from Alpha Industries next week.

    I'll get a Barbour Bristol next and I should be sweet.

    I also need to pick up my jacket from Rob...

    CP - I probably like the Real McCoy more than Aero - they have a younger fit.

    He's never early, he's always late. First thing you learn is that you always gotta wait.

    Fair enough... But being in my forties, I'm quite content with a not so young fit (-:


    Yikes!!


    Sounds good. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do mine. Incidentally, they sell the Alpha A2 for $475 at Lawrence Ordnance in Sydney; that's where I bought mine.

    You're right! I blame my flu-addled brain.

    Oh neat, if you don't mine me asking, how much did that set you back and when is delivery expected?

    How far is the Kelso off on delivery? Keen for fit pics.
    And a daypack and wallet. This is getting ridiculous.

    Oh neat, be sure to post a pic!

    I'm waiting for Godot.
