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.

    these 3 jackets in these pictures were produced across more than 5 years: one black calf falcon, 2016; one black lamb toj, 2013 (purchased secondhand in nearly unused form, could have been produced before that); one brown calf toj, 2010. i know that details changed over time in the toj days; some of the details between the tojs and the falcon here may reflect pre-falcon changes. just detail pics here.

    Cuff withOUT stitching is a heck of a lot cleaner.

    Why the change, Charly/Dan?

    A lot of double riders out there have that sleeve stitching, including what the DR1 is based on, the Lewis Lightning

    do you think the new calf is too unforgiving of a leather for an extra slim fit?

    still debating over whether i want a dr3 or not, but if i do get one i kinda want a more "aggressive" fit

    no not at all. the oxblood calf i have keeps the jacket looking sharp, in the sense of keeping its shapes and lines. it has softened up a lot since i got it. even though i love the suppleness of the lamb, i dont think i would enjoy it as much as my calf

    Really? I liked the cuff with stitching a lot better. Without stitching looks very pedestrian to me, just rolled

    I have not kept up with this thread unfortunately - is there any plan to bring the T-2 back?

    Just some insight into the current lead time, I ordered and payed on 1/3, got shipping notice on 1/15. Under two weeks MTM (might be even faster if you do stock sizes), it will probably be here 1/18 or 1/19.
