    Pictures (of the hoodie) have now been added to the first post, and pricing ($65 shipped within the US, $70 outside the US). Note that this is not the "Styleforum" color.

    How durable is the fabric? Comments that it's a lot thinner than AA leave me worried, considering the substantially higher price tag. Is this just a tshirt with some nice dye, an unusual pocket, and a hood?

    It is not a fleece hoodie, but a jersey, which means that it is closer to a tee than a fleece hoodie. However, at 10.5 ounces, it is significantly heavier than most tees, including heavy weight tees, which are generally about 9 ounce fabrics. And it is pretty stretchable (i.e. unlike stock jersey tees from, say, Fruit of the Loom or Hanes Beefy, it's not going to tear easily). However, it's not thick like Spruce hoodie, for example...

    Cool, your picture makes it look a lot more appealing. Is it meant to be worn as a shirt -- or is it meant to be worn with something underneath it?

    Um, either, I guess. I wear mine (green, with a tee underneath. But you could easily wear it as a single layer long sleeve tee as well, especially in the summer.)

    And the belts will run about $170 USD. More info as that develops.

    I have now added a picture of the swatch. It is pretty true on my monitor under natural light. Under fluorescent light, the color is even a little more brown.

    Anyway, for all interested in placing an order, please paypal me $65 (USD) to [email protected] or $70 if outside the US. The price includes shipping. Please make sure to include your size. For reference, the hoodie pictures I posted were of a small on a 38 inch chest hoodie. It fits more relaxed on a 36 chest size and is the length is meant for a 5'11" person. I am 5'11", 153 lbs, and the medium fits slim on me.

    If you have any special sizing issues (height, need a size larger than 42 (which an XL fits, etc...) please include that information me, and I can accomodate you.) Please be sure to include your shipping address dudes.

    It would really help me out if you ordered ASAP if you are sure about it instead of waiting, because it helps keep freight costs down. Thanks dudes.

    Hope you guys like the first ever Styleforum Denim and Streetwear exclusive.

    Fok.

    Sounds good.

    Ok maybe I'm sounding paranoid, but a L would fit a 6 feet, 170 lb person (yours truly) well?

    LAG, btw when will the stuff be shipped out?

    Hey Dude,

    Yes to your first question, and about 1.5 weeks from whenever I get the first bunch of orders in. I am hoping that dudes order ASAP so that you I can order and ship in bulk and not get killed on shipping fees. (I will probably put in the first request for hoodies next Monday or Tuesday). Remember that these are all made to order. Someone has got to dye the fabric, wash it, and then sew the hoodies. Nothing (except the jersey itself) is premade.

    Same question and can adjustment be made for a 5'8" guy? I'd like to have something a little shorter than usual....and maybe slightly tighter to compensate

    Thanks amd I'll transfer the money as soon as you confirm it's allright so probably tomorrow....

    Paypalling me ASAP so that I can order. I would like as many paid orders as possible ASAP so that I can get a bunch made and shipped and not get hit on freight.

    Yeah, the hoodie can be made a little shorter. In your paypal, make sure to put in the size you want and put any special requests in the notes - most reasonable accomodations can be made. I'll email you if something cannot be done. Thanks,

    Fok.

    Sorry but I am now confused about sizing.
    I am 5'5-5'6, 120lb, so I am between S and XS depending on the company.
    So is this one too big for me in S?
