    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.

    Glad I didn't come up during this button-tension problem

    Haha yeah, but some of my shirts have reversible buttons that aren't flush against the fabric it's sewn on. Instead there's like 1/4" of extension and thread wrapped around that. Need a guide on how to replicate that shit.

    So far Sales have been good to me. Some eBay stores are practically giving Margiela away. This item though I was hoping to get on sale, but I took the popularity of Saint Laurent too lightly I guess (practically selling out in the two places I knew of). It was between these Cowboy boots or the Jodhpurs but at the end of the day I already have Saint Laurent Sidezips in tan suede......and the tobacco suede was calling my name

    i'm not sure i understand what you've got there, but there are guides to reversible button sewing online, and i've stitched plenty of raised buttons back on. stitch loose and wrap around the stitching once you're feeling good about the button stitching.

    Yeah I'll take a picture of a button at some point and send it to you and lemme know if there's a guide for how to produce it :) I've googled a bit, but clearly I'm pretty incapable of describing it with words along.

    This is where I thank God for having my grandma. I watch her technique every time I need some button stitched/reinforced and she does some cool shit. Whatever she fixes for me needs to be ripped apart to come off again

    I have a LUC knit and three of the five buttons were destroyed/missing when it was still new in the shop. Or maybe they were just pretending it was new since it's the recycled knit and I got scammed. But anyway, I have to replace the buttons.

    So did you lose your LUC buttons when they popped off? Because they are really sweet buttons, or at least mine are. I've been looking for replacements, but it's hard to find anything close to as cool as the original buttons on this thing.

    thankfully, i still have the buttons, but i'm probably going to get all the buttons reinforced. the fact that all the buttons spell out LUC is a nice detail, but it was really poorly thought out in execution. it just makes the buttons a huge hassle. i wonder if i can order devoa buttons.....
