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.

    The "Bibs". Are in fact the same Reversible Bib. Showing both sides. Using Japanese Denim. Cotton Camo, and soft corduroy.

    @FlorianQC I am not a tailor, as I am more interested in "blue collar" menswear . From early last century. Experimenting with how to make it work for our time. And luckily , it is at the leading edge of Japanese fashion right now.:slayer: I'm starting small, re-learning the construction methods. Hoping that one day my stuff is a grail brag for members like @Barrel, Nataku,and others. I will be Focusing on waistcoats, chore coats, and some accessories. There are enough people making jeans. Starting slowly, picking up the pace next year.:)

    Not a thrift brag but a brag nevertheless. For my bros who lifts, I've started dead lifting for the first time in my life about 3 weeks ago, hit my best max so far @175 lbs. Not bad for starters @ 2am dead lifting when no sleep. [​IMG]

    That looks like 295 to me. Did you mean you lifted 175lbs, or your body weight is 175lbs? Anyway, nice setup. You don't need much for a great home gym. I train at home, too.

    I can photograph some "REAL" Bape's if it helps the thread out. [​IMG]



    @barrelntrigger That's it!! When you come back we are going to arm wrestle at the bar. Loser buys drinks.

    2 Things:

    1) Be honest with your form. Deadlift is a high risk/reward movement when the weights go up. Doing weight that is too high for you with improper form will fuck you up.
    2) Use bigger plates. So you don't have to lift the side up, roll the bar onto a small 5 lb plate to get it off the ground and make taking off/putting on plates past the first 45'er easier.

    And fastlife is right, you can get the weight up wicked fast on deads. Just make sure you're not lagging on other things cause imbalances suck.
    Also, come post on RHET!

    Lol, I've heard that! Thanks!

    Lol, body weight = 175. I tend to get lazy while training at home. But some training at home is better than no training at all.
    I don't arm wrestle, bro. I got bad shoulders. But I'll be more than happy to buy you a few drinks when we are over next year.

    True. I've seen some shitty forms. That's another reason why I don't bump up the weight too fast. To prevent from having shitty forms, I've always make sure my grip is wider, stance is a bit wider than shoulders width, head always looking 45 degrees up, butt down, keep the back straight and most importantly, thrust the hips forward but never out too much when completing the lift. I've found that by focusing on the hip thrust, you keep your back straight. Oh yeah, keep the bar close to your thighs and roll it against your shins, thighs as you come up for the lift is also a key point.
