    I'd really like to see a picture of one of the EG belts. I'm interested in buying one.

    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?


    I would go with an S, which was built for a guy with a 36 chest. I think that he is 140 lbs, but about 5'10". Make a note of your height if you decide to order.

    Re. belts: I wll post pictures of a belt (not the SF belt; these will be made to order and thus none exist right now) and leather swatches once they are in my hands.

    It depends how this goes. The jacket is more expensive (obviously), so I didn't do that one first. But if there is enough interest shown (i.e. enough orders to warrant the work), yes, there will be more exclusives.

    I'd just like to say that I think it's really cool what you're doing LA Guy. That's a great price on the hoody, and I love the thought of a SF exclusive. Makes me feel all tingley.

    That being said, it's so damn hot here I can't really see myself buying an item of clothing that I won't wear for six or seven months.

    If you read the post, the hoodie is not a fleece, but a heavy jersey. Think of it as your heaviest tee - that's why I said that it's a good summer piece and am doing it now. Anyway, your choice.

    That last pic is mine and the belt is actually looking cooler now. I've been using navy blue shoe cream on it every couple of weeks.

    I always wear it with the Loake Chelseas:

    I can also order you the hoodie in green (just put this in your paypal order). I just saw an overwhelming response for the Styleforum "red".

    Fok.

    Wow, j, that belt looks a lot better than mine. Blue shoe cream, huh?

    I apologize for the delay on the leather swatch pics, but they are coming from the UK from a supplier...

    Do you have any quick swatches of the green?

    I should've asked sooner, but I was very busy this weekend (and, great, now I'm on a computer with only 16 bit color for the rest of the day).

    Not right now dude, but I'll try to take some pics later. Should be able to get one made quickly...

    Yeah, just rub Meltonian navy blue #21 in there for some interest. I actually acetoned the belt down and used navy blue on it a while back, and had forgotten about that. It didn't seem to strip any of the original color/finish when I did that though.

    I am going to pick up some bright green soon to try too.
