1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    I've got a Visconti that I've had for years and the more it gets beaten up, the better it looks: [​IMG]
    The backpacks posted thus far are not good [​IMG] Allow me to assist. [img[http://www.leatherbag.co.jp/2_basic/database/img/il/minerva135/model_z.jpg[/img [​IMG]
    Those are beautiful bags, really. When I started attending professional school while working, I needed a bag that could function as well with my suit at work, jeans at class, and everything in between -- and since my commute involves a chunk of walking, I needed a backpack to free my arms and save my neck from my 24lbs of casebooks. I went with a Saddleback, and can't rec them more highly: This bag has been perfect for every need I have -- it converts from a backpack to a messenger, which is great for me, as a backpack is just not professional as it. Never will be. As a messenger, it flies under that radar. http://www.saddlebackleather.com/cat...fcase-Chestnut ~ H

    Likewise. I have quite a few items from him.
    And I can't praise their customer service enough. I had a selvage lugger that I bought a couple of years ago. Never really used it until recently, decided to take it on a short trip to Portugal as my carry-on, and the fabric around the handle ripped.
    I contacted their Burlington Arcade store, and they changed if for a new one, no questions asked. No proof of purchase (I can't remember where I bought it from frankly... I think it was Oi Polloi). Had to change the color, but I really didn't mind in the light of the excellent customer service.

    Oh and check out their website. They have some ridiculous deals going on. I would have bought the Double Canvas Truffle bag in the sale (sold out now in canvas) if I didn't have a Filson doing the job right now.

    His products are genuinely excellent imho... Good worksmanship (until this bag at least), well thought-out.

    I've never seen a good looking backpack. Maybe Louis Vuitton but that'd be so gaudy.
