Thanks the pattern is a lot more subtle in real life. The pic does make it seem like it would hurt your eyes but that's just my terrible camera. I'm in the US so unfortunately I have no Idea what else Alan has. As you know he doesn't have a webstore so I ordered through email/PayPal. Strangely no one in the US picked up the blk/wht houndstooth. Nepenthes NYC informed me that he was the only stockist that picked it up other than a few in Japan.
