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.

    Terence Connor of The Bedford Project flew out of NYC to shoot a bit of video footage of Nick a couple weeks back. He made this short teaser video for us to hold us over until he has finished putting everything together. It was an honor to have someone ask to film our operations and we hope to offer more glimpses into our workshop in the future.

    Yeah, that was the piece that captured my imagination. I should have bought it at their launch party last year.

    A week ago, I started working on what will be the new Exploratorium on Pier 15. Everyone suggested Carhartt, Ben Davis, Dickies, but I already had work-worthy pants. Or were they? I decided to put my Jack/Knife jeans to the test.

    I'm outside on the top of the building about 8 hours a day, and walk about 10 miles up and down stairs, gravel, roofing, ladders, etc. I've sat & slid on the roof, on struts, and railing. So far I have been wearing them every day. They have not been washed, yet somehow are getting more soft and comfortable, possibly due to a mixture of sun, salty air, and body sweat.

    The first time I wore them, a couple guys said these jeans weren't going to last. The same guys are asking me where I got them.

    When veteran construction workers give your jeans props, that should tell you something.

    Will post pics soon.

    It was quite hot today. Thankfully a slight breeze kicked in around 2pm.

    looking forward to seeing your new products. I'm hoping to eventually make it San Francisco to have a pair of jeans made by you all.

    Left hand twill at 8 or 9 months, 1 or 2 washes. They're fading really well and are so comfortable.

    And the lifetime warranty is no joke either:

    Thanks very much to Nick for the excellent service and craftsmanship. I really appreciate it. :slayer:

    I'm thinking of ordering a pair of jeans, I would like to see them this week end but they didn't answer to my email yet. Do you think I could go to their workshop without an appointment?

    Edit: got the answer
