    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.

    what do you mean?
    the order that just sent through had raglan sleeves on the jackets, like this, where the sleeve goes all the way to the collar: [​IMG] I'd rather have the sleeves end at the shoulder [​IMG]

    Ahhhhh. Thanks for the explanation. I hadn't even thought of that aspect.

    I was about to cop one, but then I realized that it had raglan sleeves.

    Any chance we can just have regular sleeves for the next batch? thanks.

    Which one of the sleeve styles (raglan or normal) is considered the original? I think they are both classic looks in their own right, yet raglan sleeves if done right are a nice touch. They add something distinctive to the jacket. I mean how many jacket styles have raglan sleeves? I have a short biker style jacket and a rain coat with raglan sleeves, that's it.

    Rain coats like Aquascutum's often have raglan sleeves.

    i would guess that both are fine in terms of authenticity. mine form HS has raglan sleeves but I know I've seen tons of photos of normal set in sleeves as well. I think it's really up to personal preference. I think the raglan sleeve is way more interesting though. especially if you aren't doing tone on tone.

    I can't wait for the results of the 1'st run. It's delayed slightly by sizing issues apparently.

    This is true--they're sending fit samples.

    I MAY open it up for a few more orders once we get the fit straight.

    I'm so upset I missed the deadline to order. I signed up on styleforum a little while back just to get this jacket, but I haven't been following the thread. I hope you are able to include a few more orders later or perhaps do a second run.

    I doubt u can wear that in -20 degrees in TO. You going to freeze. Its more of a fall jacket.
