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.

    same as normal non-selvedge officer chinos. 32x32 fits well, which is what i usually take.

    speaking of chino sizing, can anyone compare the slim to the regular 1940 officer chino? is the top block the same?

    Haha. That comes from the cow, man. Leather is skin, you know. Any cattle brands, any barbed wire run through, any stretch marks, those make their way into the final product and tell the story of that cow's life. It's not a knock on the quality, it's something to be appreciated.

    Uh... No. You must not have much leather in your life. I remember a Saddleback leather backpack went for$ 100s more than they usually go for because you can see the cattle's branding on it. Saddle up, pony boys.

    Bullshit. Stretch marks means lazy shoemaker using the crappy part of the leather.
    Branding isn't the same as stretchy belly leather.

    Obviously the consensus here is to be a sissy about leather and I won't argue it. The process of calving requires the stretching of skin to accommodate the new calf. It's calfskin.

    No, it's not calfskin. It's cowhide.
    It's not a calf anymore if it just gave birth.

    I believe the consensus is that you have no idea wtf you're talking about.
    Also, when one states "I won't argue it" then they shouldn't follow it with more argument.

    "Fully lined with French du Puy aniline-dyed calfskin"

    Anything else you'd like me to school you on?
