1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    And does ist stretch? Because the price is nice and i'm really into this jacket. I usually always wear XS if the brand is offering it, however 42cm pit to pit seems ultra small.

    I'm 133 lbs, 5'10"

    How do you all feel about bi-swing backs on a leather jacket? I've personally found that I'm not a fan of them if a leather jacket is being used for a non-functional purpose.

    Mainly this is due to the extra fabric in the back, making one's shoulders and upper back look abnormally large.

    Curious to see what others think though.

    If it's lamb it'll stretch a bit but not by much, not enough to move it up to the next size.

    I like the chunky zipper. Or it might just be a XXXS jacket making it look chunky...

    The Japanese don't know how to do a mid-market jacket without adding one or two crippling overdone design features. Decent jacket that just wouldn't really go that far without one getting sick of the stupid breast pocket or nonsensical English change pocket.

    The quick-release belt is interesting, though.

    So many designers ruin really nice jackets with overembellishments. That stupid pocket kills this for me.

    I think the colors kill it for me.

    I actually kind of like that pocket.
