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.

    Cheers,

    ^^ Don't know about the fit on those pants...

    I'm sure construction/quality are great, but they look a wee bit off...

    Yeah, just noticed that they seem to taper a little bit. Not good, but the material's pretty nice, a nice shade of olive, and all the inside seams have red lining.

    +1, You could probably have the inseams altered to a slimmer thigh and straighten the legs. I've done this to a few pairs of pants now - it's pretty easy.

    How much did you pay to get that done? It seems to be a major procedure, and so I'm thinking a little on the high side.

    I did it myself. I've heard of people having it done for about $15-25 I think - you could call an alterations place. Basically you just sew a long, mostly straight seam on the inseam a little further in, rip the old one out, and press it. You don't usually need to cut off the excess, but even that isn't much work. Sometimes it requires redoing the hem, if you go down that far. It's really not very involved.

    They were $175 shipped in the US. You guys interested in another run. Probably just one color though (I'm tending towards blue), and all prepaid. The last thing with the deposit was a huge hassle. Anyway, if I get enough PMs or something, I may look into it.

    Man, it's very tempting, but I don't think I am in the position now to drop that kind of money[​IMG] but maybe I'll change my mind [​IMG]

    No, I'm not Jet [​IMG] I'm all over the place in the What are you wearing now thread. It's been moving rather quickly recently, but I posted a couple of weeks ago, I think. And there are pictures of me, face and all, elsewhere as well.

    I spoke with Angelo at EG today and told him about this thread. He thought it was terrific and was going to show Daiki the thread. I mentioned to him that I thought it would be a great idea to post some of these pics in their new Blog which he also felt would be a good way to show how the EG fans roll in their stuff.
    So, lets pic up where we left off and see if we can get some of you guys fashion fame.

    P.S. My EG bags are finally on there way again. The first shippment was lost by UPS.
    I'll let you all know when they land in the store.
