    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.

    Since no one asked, the stunning conclusion to my obsession with 5 zips:

    [​IMG]

    Still does't fit. But on the pro side, it looks crazy and the leather is nice. I suppose that blue lamb was a fluke but you shouldn't have flukes in the quality of your materials AND be asking for a million dollars a jacket.

    I'm just going to admit 5 Zips don't fit me. You would think that the cut would be flattering to an athletic build. Large shoulders, roomy chest and a big 5 inch drop. But the jackets taper so oddly and gradually I end up with a bunch of extra leather under my arms that just looks real bad.

    Is it crazy I want to get this tailored? It was a disaster with my first 5 Zip. So, yes, it's crazy. But, man, you do not see something like this every day.

    I dunno, I have a lamb 5-zip that fits me great. I'm a drop 8. YMMV.

    If you're after a super tailored fit with the same vivid colors, you might want to try one of the Japanese brands like Attachment or Julius (thinking of their bright red leather). I'd suggest Rick, but I'm not sure he ever does vivid

    I use there moisturizer everyday, I wash my face with the vitamin E bar, then blend the cream with some cold water. Works really well without clogging up my face. The clay mask I use once a month and scrub the hell out of my face with Baxters facial scrub before I apply it, kind of burns but works well. The herbal mint toner, and aftershave are great also.

    Was so-so close to grabbing this for $800, but copped virgils instead ...I made the right decision.

    ^Any specific brand of french clay?

    I've had good experiences with Anthony Logistics masks, was gonna get more of that after I use up the baxter but I'll give the green clay a try.

    ^they have way too many products depending on your needs/skin type, i use the camelia nut moisturizer which is matte since i don't like oily moisturizers, the fabulous face wash is, well, fabulous, also use the neroli after shave but i don't shave anymore, the deodorant is my favorite, the parsley seed serum is great for hydrating in the hot months and i also use the hand lotion which is superb

    nations, this is what i use, just mix with appropriate amount of water to desired consistency, i ilke it the visocisty of say mayo
    http://www.amazon.com/Frontier-Fren...=1403306282&sr=8-3&keywords=french+green+clay

    will last forever, i use a brush to mix and apply, leave on anywhere between 15-30 mins

    Was eyeing the parsley seed serum too, so I just ordered that ...hope it lasts for $60.

    @jet How often due you use that mask? Seems a lot of people enjoy it.
