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,

    LA Guy and those that suggested Corpus denim were on the ball. Picked up a pair at Hejfina in Chicago, and the jeans couldn't be any better. The denim itself is superlative, the details clean and the cut is perfect. Really, just the right boot cut that is relaxed just enough in the seat. The stitching is great, and really compliments the rest of my wardrobe (the colors mimic the Nike Vandals, my Greige jacket, etc.).

    Good choice. I'll be breaking these in in no time.

    Side note: I'll be posting some pics of the Greige jacket soon, for those interested.

    Yep, those are some cool jeans.  I imagine that you are wearing a 34, from your description of yourself?  I am personally rocking a pair of 32 from the summer collection, and they were a little tight at the waist at the beginning, but pretty perfect through the thighs for me.  Do you know if you are wearing the summer or winter collection version?  Basically (Jerrod from Corpus told me) they only difference is that the summer version is a little more washed, a little softer.  I noticed a considerable difference in the sizing though.  The summer 32 fit more like 31's in my mind.

    edit:Guy's name was Jerrod, not Jeff.

    I'm not sure which version I'm wearing...do you know where this information might be on the label?

    The denim isn't terribly soft, but it's not exactly unwashed either so I'm not sure what to compare it to.

    It might be the summer, as I could barely even fit into the 34s and the 36s fit almost perfectly. That was the case with Earnest Sewn Hutch as well.

    I've found that anything that has been through more washing/treatment fits slightly/considerable slimmer.

    i.e, gto 3 years seem to fit slightly tighter than 1 years, and bootcut ola super used fit significantly tighter than dry.


    --edit-- btw, congrats on the nice jeans + jacket pickup

    This is usually called rinse or one wash.
