1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    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.

    you can see it says "the rugger" on the inside of the collar of the shirt. this is not the normal gant line.


    Yeah I know I've tried the rugger. It doesn't fit well either.

    Sounds good. Maybe we can teach you how to punctuate and use the King's English correctly? [​IMG]

    chainstitching on denim is in fact not chain stitching, but a double lock stitch. i believe there's not a lot of machines that are made to do that, the union special being the only machine that i personally know that can do it

    oh rly?

    looks like lots of machines can do a double lockstitch

    http://www.made-in-china.com/showroo...g-Machine.html

    did you mean to say double chainstitch? because there are lots of machines that can do that too

    whats up with all this BS about some sort of stitching that can only be done by one machine in the world. ridiculous. thats like saying only leicas can take pictures.

    This. For free. Uniform issue where I work. I'll take the agency insignia off and wear as streetwear. Fuck, this has become my new favorite jacket!

    Yeah!

    Yeah I saw this at Gravity Pope here, in brown. Really awesome but not workable with my stuff. I suggest you take the scarf off, beat the shit out of the jacket with wear, then wear it with the scarf next winter. Seems like it will be rad once it's been through some shit.

Also in 2 weeks: 19cm MIJ Dior Indigo 19cm MIJ Dior Black RO Short sleeve twisted seam Getting rid of most of my other minty denim, going to go with these and some NS's, some Iron Heart 9103's.

    lol

    I've wanted some for ages

    I just couldn't find any 'nice' enough for what I wanted. I want a pair of guidi backzip boots, but these came up when I was looking. I will still probably kop guidi boots as well, lol.

    I was probably going to get the Toyo enterprises horsehide ones, which are nice as, but these came up and I had to kop, had no choice.

    They are mighty nice.

    Should be in my hands within a fortnight, I will post better pics.

    ^ Thanks man. It's a constant process of getting rid of what you don't wear and buying new stuff, lol. I have to sell a Krane bomber I bought, purely because I'm never going to be able to wear it in a sub tropical climate. One of the best items I've ever handled though. Amazing details. ;_; Alot of the goth ninja stuff is just silly, with a few things being good. I want some guidi back zip boots at some point, in a light or medium matte grey, and I might get a couple more RO cut / sew short sleeve T's, to wear with denim, also thinking about an MMM graphic T. Also want an MMM 5 zip, or a CCP leather. I think it's more likely going to be the MMM 5 zip. [​IMG] However the overall aesthetic isn't gothninja, much more grunge. Say no to drape. I would love to live close to Jil / Raf / MMM / DH boutiques, it would make life alot easier.

    ^Was going to cop washed red 5 zip past fall and hated the cut (not style, cut). Black bomber I got is much much sicker.
