    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.

    Have you handled it in real life? I have it in both non-placket and placket version. It's much less impressive in person.

    The color is actually very faded looking at its not a solid color'd fabric like it looks like. It's actually more of a very small check pattern.

    I mean it's a cool shirt don't get me wrong, but it wasn't the magical water-like fabric in the lookbook ;p Or do you disagree Nations

    I'd agree the colors are not as impressive as the lookbook when indoors. But when outdoors with good natural light it really does "pop" like it does in the lookbook.

    It's also really soft and just comfortable to wear.

    Yeah it is really soft and comfortable to wear :) And yar from a distance and in natural light it looks sexy as well.

    It's a good shirt, but man that picture in the lookbook was unreal good. Which it turned out to be haha.

    That's impressive. Did you apprentice somewhere?

    it might matter more since you actually live in california, but i kind of wouldn't worry about it if you're not doing the rest of that stuff. oh, and I am wearing skate hi's right now.

    Thank you!

    No apprenticeship, I wouldn't even know where to find it (in belgium)
    I did invest a significant amount of spare time into it and I owe a lot to cutterandtailor.com and tuttofattoamano...

    It's surprising how many similar comments I get.

    "Hey I like the jacket without the sleeves" or "The white threads look pretty cool actually, you should leave'm in"

    I guess the coat in it's finished form is about as streetwear as it gets for me :)

    Had my tailor turn my Jil gradation metallic knit from a turtleneck into a rollback because it was restricting my thick neck came out really good.

    So there is a button on Yoox where you can transfer Moneyoox to Paypal. I believe you can also get it credited back to your credit card at any time. This is the appealing thing about Moneyoox to me since you can always just get the money back if you want it.

    But although I live in Europe and my main site is Yoox Europe, I occasionally order in the US when I am visiting my parents. So I have $900 in Moneyoox in the U.S. and they are telling me that I can't have it refunded because the US site is the only one in the world that doesn't allow that. I feel bait and switched because I never would have allowed my refund to go to Moneyoox without that option. I just didn't look to see if the T&C in the US were different (who would, come on?)

    Anybody ever notice this or have any experience trying to get them to refund it?

    Can you buy something with the moneyoox and then return it and have it credited to your eu account?

    I don't see how. You have to return it to the Yoox where you bought it.
