    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.

    The racing jacket is amazingly cool and I like the asymmetrical hoodie, as well (wish I had ordered it when it was still available in brown). I really need to get a better job so I can actually buy stuff instead of just staring at photos of it on the Internet. [​IMG] Good luck!

    We will probably be offering brown as a color option for our knits in the next month or two.

    Thanks for the well wishes...

    I nearly wet my pants at the sight of that racer jacket...

    As for the knits, they're cheaper than AA in the UK. Think I'll have to pick up a couple of hoodies, and get a job asides from being a wannabe property baron for that jacket.

    I can't tell from the pictures, but how thick/warm are the hoodies compared to a standard cheap brand like AA?

    All our knits are lightweight. They are all made from 9.5oz organic combed cotton jersey...

    is it just me or do the measurements seem a bit odd? I usually wear a medium (~38 chest) but, comparing the measurements of that linen hoodie jacket to my french F2 that fits me quite well, I'd need an XS or S..? also, hope you don't mind me posting this here (from sufuuu) [​IMG] [​IMG] looks badass [​IMG]

    I really like that t-shirt too, is it another of your friend's prints?

    Ott, I'm a 39 inch chest, and usually wear a medium as well. I just bought the small Linen jacket sample. The one in the pic. MJ (the Jordan of small, independent knitwear!) shipped it out just a little bit ago, and I'll post pics when I get it. That should give a pretty good idea of the fit when sized down one.

    I'm still disappointed he didn't call his line J. Krell.

    thanks man. I'd appreciate it.

    I think I'll need a small as well. Probably order a black one with a few extra inches in length.

    I was just going to ask sauce what his measurements were. I'm pretty sure Fok could comfortably wear the small and he is a 38/39, right? We wanted the fit a little more relaxed, but you can size down on this one if you want a slimmer fit. I am a 36 and that is our size small.

    If you think I look bad in the picture, I can't wait for sauce's pics...

    That is one of my designs. It was my first foray into discharging. For spring, we will attempt to have some limited t-shirt runs...

    Just so you guys know, my business partner, Colby Backous is really the genious behind this line. All the basic designs are his. I just try to do provide him with everything he needs so he can just focus on design. When we decided to call it Michael J Krell, I was always embarressed because he does the designing. He wanted it this way though, and it's my name on the bills [​IMG] , so I don't feel weird anymore.

    We were just going to call it krell, but there is a company called krell that makes high end audio equipment. Than we were going to call it michael krell, but someone else had michaelkrell.com, so it became michael j krell...

    Yeah, the smalls will fit a 38-39 chest snug but comfortably through the chest, but you better have a 30" waist to go with that. A small was too small for a guy who is probably a true 40 chest, but with a 32-33" waist. Better go fora medium in that case. The knitwear fits tighter. I wear a medium, and it is snug through the chest, arms, and torso for me.

    True waist. Maybe a 31. Def nothing over a 32, unless you like a snug waist on your jacket.

    Fok and I seem to be almost exactly the same size in pretty much everything, so it should be good. I like the idea of the jacket as a relaxed-fit piece for spring and early fall, but since I'll be layering it for the next few months I figured I'd get one a bit slim... nothing (but finances) stopping me from purchasing a medium in Chocolate for the spring!

    Oh sure, you've got cash to blow on a Thompson machine gun for a few hours but not enough to sartorially invest on another SF member? You make me sicker than watching a Manning commercial.

    I'm not sure if the linen jacket fits the same as the first jacket what was sold here, but I'm thinking it is going to be way too small for you Sauce. I am a pretty normal 38 (6'1" 160 lbs) and the medium version of the first jacket is just a bit too tight for me, especially through the shoulders. Kind of annoying, because I think overall the large might look too big, especially with how short the jacket is cut, not sure though.

    The shoulders are the only question, but I know the chest will be fine from the measurements. Most of my favorite-fitting items have chests that measure almost exactly that. I guess we'll find out!
