    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.

    Hey dudes,

    While waiting for the special order belts (which could be a while - I still haven't recieved the swatches yet), just wanted to remind you that Gary ( www.drinkwaterscambridge.com ) still has both the standard black with silver and brown with brass styles.

    Fok.

    Geez...

    Well, if you order today, and I mean pay before noon EST or something, I can ask if Michael can whip one up ASAP. But that is it for this batch. $65 shipped within the States, $70 shipped everywhere else.

    I guess I'll have to wait for the next batch.
    How would the green look like, any picture of the green one?
    Thank you

    The hoodies have been made. One was shipped to me for inspection, and Michael is shipping the rest to me now. They should be shipped out to you guys by priority mail next week. Sorry for the delay.

    The leather swatches for the belts arrived from the UK just today as well. Daiki is shipping them to me, and I will post pics ASAP. Still no final word on whether it will be possible to have the straps made interchangeable, but I'll ask about that. Thanks all!

    Fok.

    Um, I guess that I could take a picture tonight with a green hoodie (don't have a medium in right now) and post it to show you the fit...

    Okay, guys, here are the bridle leather swatches that Daiki sent me. For reference, 1 and 2 are black and brown, as currently available. 3 is really, really dark brown - it looks black except against the black. Even then, it takes a discerning eye to tell the difference. I've tried to get these as true color as possible, but 4 is actually a darker blue than in the photo, and 6 is more green. In any case, I think that 6, 7 and 9 are the most interesting possibilities. 6 is sort of henna colored (brown with red undertones), and 7 and 9 are different shades of tan, with 9 being lighter with more yellow in it. Anyway, we can only really choose 1 color, 2 if I have a lot of orders. I need to get a minimum number of orders in order to get these made, and there will be a wait time of 8-10 weeks (these are all cut to order). The buckle will be brass (as shown in the thread).

    Your comments would be appreciated, as well as PM's if you are committed to ordering. I will order these belts only if there is sufficient concrete interest. Prices will be $170 US. Hope you guys enjoy!

    Fok.

    I haven't asked Daiki exactly yet, but in the range of a half dozen orders, I would imagine. I will definitely ask him on Monday.

    And any of the brown (except the darkest, which is pretty much black) will match the CT boots. You don't want your belt and boots match exactly, imo.

    I like 3, 4 and 8 the best, but if 6 is the popular favorite, you can still count on me to order.
