    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.

    I spotted some new Thin Finns the other day with the pocket stitching in dark blue (other stitching was orange as usual), so it didn't stand out. Fairly pointless I thought at the time, but once they fade it'll become visible.

    I've hacked all the defining marks - labels, pocket stitching, etc - off most of my jeans, but I mostly just feel that drawing attention to my ass makes it look fat!

    I'm such a woman...

    I can't see removing the stitching unless it depicts a butterfly raping a unicorn or something like that. Probably not (especially not) even then. If the stitching is too fruity, I wouldn't buy it to begin with.

    When one is trying to look more masculine, reaching for the sewing tools is rarely the answer. [​IMG]

    I think you just gave RMC an idea for their next design. [​IMG]

    DDML did you photoshop that or is it real? Either way it's awesome.

    I bet the quality on those jeans is well worth the $100. If I could take the pics off of the pockets, i would easily buy those.

    Something cool like that always comes up when I've just blown my discretionary income on something else. [​IMG]

    I like the Nudie stitch, so I say keep it.

    You could just take one or two of the lines out. I've seen pictures of people thinning out the Nudie stitch and I think it looked quite good.

    To me the stiching is about brand recognition. Which has 2 purposes. 1 to affirm it's popularity, the other to generate hype/martketing/talk.

    Even if the physicals of the stiching aren't working, their root purpose (brand reinforcement) is working.

    I cut it off of mine because I think its sort of girlish, but I'm really picky about things like that. It might be sweet to remove all the lines except the two on the edges to get a hollow version of the same design.
