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.

    I'm digging the band collar but I think I'm too broing to pull off the quilting. I'm also a huge fan of the minimalist DR and I'm having trouble deciding between the two. The band collar looks a bit spaceman when fully zipped and not being able to pop the collar is a serious downside... Actually, the more I think about it, the more I realize I'm just a fashionless dude who can't take the steaze [​IMG] Looks like boring minimalist it is for me

    So with the BCDR, if one were to get it without the quilted areas would it still have the same panels as the quilted version (but with smooth leather); or would it have continuous sleeves and body like the Minimalist DR? Hope that question made sense, probably could have phrased it better...

    Would it be cool to add unicornprincess's renderings to the ToJ website? They would be great as a reference to know what the colors look like before you buy. If you do, it might be useful/necessary to add a disclaimer underneath in bold letters that says that it's an artist's rendering and the actual product may look slightly different... but it would be very useful for the lurkers that use the website to decide on the product to purchase.

    Almost about to close my order commissioning a leaf green minimalist DR. Awesome.

    the quilted bcdr is the bastard child of synth's megaman jacket and a regular dr.

    [​IMG] awesome updates! My monitor must be off since the dark grey looks only a hair lighter than the black, and nothing close to the medium gray as mentioned earlier. Adding on to requests for fit pics, it'd be helpful to see both the BCDR and the gothninja dad jacket zipped and unzipped fully, and paired with buttondowns, like the earlier DR shots. [​IMG]

    Being completely honest, the 2010 DR with a fur collar is still the thing I'm most interested in kopping

    Boredom posting before bedtime...

    Who holds the record for the most time waited for an item? I remember reading a member waited around 9 weeks for an item.

    With the new 5 additions, anyone else ordering the older stuff? Haha.

    Been catching up on (the past three months of) the thread all day, but I got a little lost on fur collars on the DR: are they gone for good, temporarily, or back again?

    I've given up my social life for the next several years, man. I work 45-50 hours a week and I'm pursuing my 2nd master's (I still have 16 classes left). My days off are spent doing school related activities mostly.

    I worked 6AM-4PM today, then stopped by the gym on the way home, took a mini nap, just chilling now. Gotta be back at work tomorrow and Sunday at 8AM to train new employees.

    I also stopped drinking about 2 years ago when I dropped down from 220 lbs to 145 lbs, haha. If I have 2 Heineken's, I might be out for a week.

    The last time I went out was to see Facebook the movie sadly. [​IMG]

    I seriously cannot Stanley doing a full make-over. I honestly don't think his style is a bad fit for him...give his physique and all and his age, I'm assuming he's in his mid to late 20s now...so not a young buck like Fuji.

    gone until drew feels like doing them again. it seems as if it was more trouble than it was worth, and that there is none of it in the market place as of now.

    holy shit. i thought i did good going from 190 to 165. well done. sorry to hear about your grind. i thought you might be in banking or something and woulda recommended u just tell ur staffer to fuck off lol.

    i really dislike SvB's aesthetic to the point where whenever i see his glasses on the waywt thread i skip the post altogether. people generally seem to approve of it, which confounds me to no end. which is why i want to see a change, lol.

    When I started Muay Thai conditioning, that sparked something inside of me. I started reading and researching proper foods and stuff. This is before I worked full time of course so I had the time to hit the gym twice a day. I went from around 220 lbs at 30% body fat to around 145 at 11% body fat. When I had the time, I would literally eat around 2000 cals a day consisting of nothing but healthy foods. I'm no Drew but I held it down with the George Foreman grill, haha. But now I'm around 150-155 at 13% body fat...only have time to go to the gym 3-4 times a week now.

    My field of work is unique, man. We're open 24/7/365. I don't mind the grind though. That's my mission statement for myself...you gotta stay hungry, man. Especially if you have expensive tastes in life. [​IMG] Haha.

    yes, that was in the cards from the beginning - the way the BCDR looks now with the wild pipe quilt on the shoulders, if we reversed it, shrunk the body down and slimmed the sleeves, it'd be a very nice women's jacket.

    please make this happen.

    in other news, emailed.

    This just looks astounding, Synthese wanted a milky leather for summer, I suggest this. [​IMG]
    I haven't been paying attention but this is some next level Logan's Run/Daft Punk/StarTrek explorer shit right here.
