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.

    Dudes,

    The first batch of hoodies came in. I will ship them out tommorrow via USPS Priority, hopefully these will arrive at your doorstep by Saturday... I'm sending them to the addresses in the Paypal accounts unless requested otherwise.

    I don't have picture of me in one, but will try to do that tonight... although I need to replace the batteries in the digital camera. I am 5'11" and 40 chest, and a medium fits me well, so a medium would probably fit a 41 chest as well, although you might want a large if you have especially wide shoulders.

    I'm in for #6. Also, when do you think you'll be able to put together another order of hoodies?

    Here is a picture of me in a medium hoodie, obviously not the best picture of all time, and not in the Styleforum color. For reference, I am 5'11", 152 lbs as of this morning, with a 40" chest and a 31" waist. If I can get three or four orders in and paid for, I'll ask Michael to make more...

    Fok.

    I am taking orders again for the Styleforum hoodies, this time available in both green (as shown above (damn, that is a bad photo [​IMG]) and in the Styleforum maroon. I will make an order next Friday, so if you are interested, check out Post 1 for details about ordering.

    Also, I've decided to go with color 6 (henna) for the Styleforum belt. Please PM me if you are interested. Please be aware that a deposit to cover the costs will be necessary, and since the belts are cut to order, then shipped from the UK to Nepenthes, then to me, then to you, and Daiki is super busy, that a 3 month wait is not unheard of. Think of it as a "bespoke" program. Obviously, the more orders, the better leverage I have to ask Daiki to get the belts done ASAP.

    OK, I'll throw this out there. 4 and 5 would also be *very* cool, but I don't know how they would look against jeans. I'm already in with a vote for the henna, but would also join in support for the blue or the green.

    I like blue #4 the most, but I'm not going to buy one, so whatever. I want a blue belt though. Maybe I will try bleaching a thrift store belt or something...

    I chose the henna because it was the most accessible, and people seemed to like it. On the other hand, the blue is more unique, and looks really cool in person. It would definitely (imo, of course) go well with jeans, expecially as an accent piece, and with the brass buckle... So now it's a toss up between the blue and the henna. Again, PM me with solid commitments if you are willing to make them.

    Fok.

    Update: A snap strap is possible, and the belts will be done with a snap on strap, as members had requested. Engineered Garments has never done this for anyone else before, so we all owe Daiki a big thanks.

    Also, I need a few more commitments before I can send an order in.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    A blue EG belt goes great with denim.
    A blue EG belt looks great with a brass buckle.
    People will stare enviously and wonder where you got your blue EG belt.
    It will not look like any other belt out there.

    Now how much would you pay? But wait! There's more!

    For the price of a mid-range pair of Japanese shuttle-loomed selvage denim jeans, you can have one belt that goes with all of your jeans. That's right, all!

    Order today! Operators are standing by. Go blue!

    Since he'll make it with a snap, would it be possible to order one in black and one in #6 with only one buckle?

    Um, maybe... Geez, you guys are hard to please. I'll see. Would you commit to buying the 2 belt straps? Don't know what the price difference would be...

    PM me.

    I hope you guys are considering it. That blue leather is serious business. You could wear it with more than jeans.

    I think the henna would be pretty flexible too. It takes a small lead for me because it's going to become my only decent jeans belt. I'm in either way.

    I'm probably not the only one but I haven't seen any posts about it; I've received my Krell hoodie and am very satisfied, considering the pretty low price in a world of $250 hoodies. Nice stitching job, lighweight summer fabric, interesting maroon/reddish color, slim fit, just enough details to make it special without making you look like you're trying too hard. I especially like the uneven shape of the bottom of the hoodie (think dress shirt with sides higher than the front and back) which, because it was adapted to my height, allows me to show up a matching tee on the side.

    I received my hoodie, too, and am very pleased with it. Great color, fit and detailing as Fuuma says. Thanks Fok!
