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.

    Just wondering, are you an official press secretary appointed by ZB or you're just an amateur expert of the brand?

    LOL

    So there are no secrets, he was/ is a customer first, because he lived in NY he has had the luxury of coming here trying stuff on, seeing how they are made and getting a better understanding of the philosophy and nature of our work. So at times he is able to give good advice on different products because he understands them well.

    Is this lambskin? Looks really soft. Gives a different vibe off than the calf used last season.

    @Distorbiant

    the jacket you posted in not lambskin

    it is horsehide, a softer version from which some of the Inner leather Jackets were made. it is very thick but not stiff.
    Actually those photos were not supposed to be posted outside of Facebook, but i guess once something gets on the internet all rules go out the window.............

    the official lookbook will be ready this week

    Zam, i know you are a small shop but i cannot advise/stress more to you to invest in a photographer. I went through the FB page with the new garments and stuff looks good. But the poses take away a lot.

    @Lokesh I've already seen those! I really like it though. Can the collar stand up on its own?

    Yep collar does stand on its own. The whole jacket could stand on its own in the beginning lol. It probably wont any more though. What other kind of fit pic did you want to see?

    Was just curious about the jacket in general. I feel like it's the type of leather that's hard to get a true measure of in photos alone.

    I don't own any other higher end leathers so unfortunately I have nothing to compare to. If you visit NYC, I'll show it to you in person :fistbump:

    I understand where you are coming from, but what are you buying?
    clothes or poses?
    you of all person know very well the quality of our work.......................buy more from us so that we have money to hire a high end photographer.
    Small companies have limited funding and have to decide where they are going to spend it. I prefer to spend it on making great pieces from very nice materials rather than on photography and then compromise the work.
    We will have nice pics for SS14, but I'm not gonna get carried away by you advising/ stressing that we should "invest" (money you are not sure if we have) in photography

    Does anyone happen to know the care instructions for these tees? Not sure if I should hand-wash or if it'll be okay in the cold cycle.

    Precisely why i want you to get better pics, your sales go up and prices go down, i buy more :D

    not suggesting an expensive photographer, just better illustrate the quality of your work, anyways you'll get my cash either way...
