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.

    I picked up a great pair of unlined antelope suede gloves when I was there.

    It's time for Unbel to pull a Mr. Moo.

    I was told by the people at Madova that the skins were the same, just with a different finish...

    Carpincho and peccary are different animals. Sometimes in the word peccary is used synonymously.

    It's where you order one thing, use it for a bit, then realize what you were sold was misrepresented and ask for your money back. :embar:

    That should be rephrased to:

    "use it for a few months to complete satisfaction, then realize what you were sold was misrepresented only after extensive consultation of web-experts, and that your discount was not as deep as you thought it to be". Just saying'. Love you.

    Haha ok - well I'm happy with the gloves regardless of the animal that perished so that they might be constructed. But I'm still interested in getting the correct information so I will report back when I hear from Madova.

    My peccary gloves:

    In retrospect, I do wish (as I have said) that they fit a bit better, and that they were more of a mid-brown than this tan-brown color.

    That's a good color, so don't complain.
    How is this for a complaint - I had a great pair of perfectly fitting, unlined Hermes peccary gloves. Now I only have one.

    Dopey, that might be one of the most painful things I've read of late. I'm very sorry for your loss.
