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.

    Cheers,

    from the Eastman website:

    The original Maker: The Monarch Manufacturing Co. was located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. This was their one and only contract for A-2 jackets. It was sanctioned in mid 1941 for a relatively small quantity compared to other contracts.

    Made from an aniline dyed, Russet shade, veg tanned Horsehide, this maker had it's own very distinct cut and sewing style; set-in sleeves, long lobs to the collar and centred shoulder seams were details that differed to most other makers.

    The reproduction: Made from our highly acclaimed War Horse[​IMG] horsehide, which is specially created, with great difficulty, to emulate the broken-grain character that is often found on originals, our Monarch Mfg Co. 23378 contract A-2 offers the ultimate in products of this genre.

    The 100% veg-tanned Horsehide is traditionally tanned and sourced from Italy. There is only one way to describe it: Outstanding! Those who appreciate and understand the endearing feel and appearance of an original vintage garment, will be positively 'blown-away' by the character and quality of this amazing hide.

    Naturally, our reproduction emulates every detail of this contract's house style to the last stitch, giving you a reproduction so accurate it could be mistaken for a dead-stock original.
