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.

    Finally paid off my double alpaca today, should be here soon :D

    BTW, not sure why everyone thinks the alpaca should fit oversized, there's a clear photo in the lookbook where it fits the tiny belgian boy slim in the arms and tight at the waist:

    I mean obviously it's slightly slouchy in places, but certainly not baggy like a lot of users have bought/worn it. Fits more like snake's does

    What I'm saying is i really hope it fits like that lookbook pic, most people's have fit far baggier and more shapeless than that

    The model is probably 6'4" with broad shoulders and sporting a size 3.

    just doesn't look the same fitted/sized down. i don't think most people run this risk unless they buy a size iii. snake's is properly oversized

    ^ I can't speak for the wool version of the alpaca, but I used to own the moleskin that Severish is selling and sized down to a 3 (I'm usually a 4 as you know) and it fit me like it does in the lookbook pic you posted, but honestly, although it fit, I felt I was a little too restricting in the shoulders and I couldn't layer the way I wanted. If you have the build that would allow for it, it will work, but in my case/opinion, true to your standard size was the way to go for the moleskin. I think the wool alpaca fit ever so slightly bigger from measurements I received and if that's the case you might still be good if you sized down.

    I've owned both a III and IV, and the IV definitely fits much better than the III, and I'm a true 36/46 (5'9, 140lbs). If I recall correctly snake is a size smaller than me, and he has a size III. Just figured I'd give my input, as I've owned so many of the damn things :eek:

    Snake has pretty much the same measurements as you do, as do I, and I think I would still go with a 3 in the alpaca. It still comes down to build and whether or not you are ok with some restricted movement, etc.

    To be honest, a great number of the fits posted in this thread of the alpaca jacket have been absolutely horrible.

    Yep, gotta agree with this. I mean, show me one person who has sized down w/ a fit pic?

    A lot of them look pretty sloppy taken in normal sizing, imo

    reedo, I think you should be able to pull off a sized down Alpaca, probably more so than myself, my shoulders are a bit broad for my size. Will be curious to see a fit pic when you get it.

    Yeah it's quite difficult to wear so it's difficult to sell in Singapore. Some of the stuff in there is pretty light which is more ideal for this region.

    Yea I don't foresee any pitfalls, other than forum bias based on seemingly made up lore haha.

    Even if it doesn't work out I might just hang it up as a display in my room, it's so beautiful
