    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.

    It's getting warmer over my way, so outerwear is outta here. I've got a nice little collection of warm weather pants. My current fav's are:

    Devoa washi slim - I wish I'd grabbed two pairs of these. The fabric is crazy good and the cut is perfect.
    Devoa destroyed silk slim pants
    IS linen canvas slim sarouel
    IS cotton and linen contrast fabric panelend slims
    LUC cotton/linen classic pants

    Can't wait for the stretch washi pants to drop in a few months. I've been considering a pair of unlined IE pants as well, but with the roughness of the fabric that may not be a flash idea.

    I have a pair of unlined IE pants in 100% selvedge cotton. Fabric isn't rough at all. Really like wearing them!

    The man in Munich knows what not to order in unlined versions :)

    Like those grey pants from Hide-M and I think will look great with boots.

    Unsure how European sizes work though. Left with 48-50 I recalled. I believe these are larger sizes for USA 38 or 40.

    /\ That sizing conversion applies to coats and tops. For pants, EU 46=US 30, 48 = 32 and so on.

    Thanks Uzairh. I read somewhere you minus 10 from the EU size for USA sizing.


    Love the color and side fitting of these pants. Not too sure about the thigh bagginess only.

    I was wondering that too. The sole ridge looks bumped out by almost a cm on the Hotoveli. I really like the back of those workboots though.

    Thanks for your interest in my work and your interest in our plans for the future
    I have actually experimented with footwear before ( never shown to the public) but I dont know if you will see Footwear from us in the near future.
    For me clothing is more in line with what I would like to do/ can do because of my technical knowledge as a Designer/ Tailor/ Pattern maker. I believe that footwear requires a special kind of know how that is beyond my scope of knowledge at the moment. I think if and when we do it, I would at least apprentice with a shoe maker to at least understand some of the fundamentals before I ever do. Even then if we ever do footwear it would have to be outsourced to s production company, unlike out clothing that is made here at Zfactorie under my direct supervision and involvement in ever step of the process.

    For the immediate present our maim focus is offering better products in a more timely manner in the already existing areas we do, offering better service to our customers and also we are just experimenting with a range of clothing called "Category M" which i will have more information regarding later.

    we pretty much have our hands full as Zfactorie has essentially become a full time production company producing products for other designers too and that takes a lot of out time and planning

    DRKSHDW Memphis flap denim

    Kind of surprised at the lack of double layering on the heel cup. This is unusual for Simone and unheard of for Carol. Crazy amount of flex in the foot bed too. I'm used to a really ridged construction through the arch but this is kind of comfy.

    Looks wise, they're the best boots I've seen from him. The thick rounded sole makes them.

    Why they've got YKK zippers is odd considering other boots from him this season don't have them. I also find it weird he makes an almost identical version with structured toe. All in all I find the whole brand odd, there's no cohesion between the styles of footwear he makes. For example, you know a layer-0 boot when you see one, as you do with guidi and ma+, but you don't with a1923.
