    Interesting. I've never seen a Potbelly that reeked, but they're greasy as fuck. I hesitate to even take them to go because they're guaranteed to leak through the bag onto whatever you sit them on in your car.

    Really getting close to pulling the trigger on a t3 but cant decide on a color and lack imagination. Anyway we could get a pic of the muted sky blue and medium grey?

    I placed my order 3 weeks ago for a Collared Moto.....so I've got nothing better to do than to obsess about the sizing. After scanning through the various B&S versions where people list their height/weight I'm worried about the sleeve length.

    I ordered one with sleeve length, from shoulder 24.5".

    I'm 6' Feet tall and thin as a rail (160)....does that sleeve sizing sound right? I'd be pretty disappointed if it was too short after a 6 week wait. Maybe I can intervene now if the sleeves sound too short to the masses.

    You should remeasure that and relay it to Charly. I think you'll find something more like 25" or so at the least. I am 5'8ish with arms maybe more like the avg 5'9-5'10 guy, so slightly long, and I wear sleeves about 24.5" on these. Normally I put 6' guys at 25.5. If you lift weights and have jacked arms they tend to measure slightly shorter I think, because the arm tends to be at a bent slightly (?) (I've never really worked out but I did for a little and felt my arms shortened noticeably during that time)

    I'll try to get some color swatches or something. Best way to do that is for Dan to send me the swatches from Seoul to Tokyo so I can see the colors with my own eyes and then Pshop them at neutral color calibration.... so it could be a few days.

    Disclaimer: representing colors on the internet is hard, because everybody uses something different and they all have different color settings. I guess if people are using a Macbook and have never touched the color settings the effect will be the same as I am seeing, or if they use iOS, the same... but once it shows up on a PC, all bets are off. Suede is also insanely hard to capture in photos, so it's likely I'll just color in an html color box or something, and have you imagine there's a sueded texture on that instead of trying to photo suede, which is futile.

    I posted up earlier that I measured 26" at just over 6'. Sounds short to me. Keep in mind a lot of the jackets on b&s aren't even original to the seller so the measurements may not necessarily reflect their true measurements.

    most people on B+S don't ever measure the TOJ jackets they're selling, sad but true. Only takes 2 minutes.

    I had the same concern. 6 ft and 150 lbs here, initial order was for 24.5" sleeves b/c I have a jacket with 25.5" sleeves that are a bit too long. Realized cutting a full inch off was probably a bad idea. Updated the order to 25.2" sleeves yesterday. Hopefully got it right.

    Which part do you live in? I like eating Navajo tacos. You kind of have to get in the mood for them maybe, but it's not exactly Manhattan out there in some parts of Arizona and so you eat what they're selling. :eek: I like New Mexico green chili too, but don't see it often on the other size of the state line.

    The ideas I have for my new Daypack will just piss you off then, :eek: But I understand what you're saying. Like I said, I've given on up on most bags because they never carry a laptop comfortably. I have a Givenchy duffle, an Ann D duffle, a Julius duffle, a Supreme duffle, a YY messenger, a Bernie Wilhelm bag, maybe some more bags I'm forgetting - they all suck if I try to carry more than a moleskine and a pen in them, haha. Some of them are just glorified (albeit hugely porportioned) versions of women's purses and so they're really uncomfortable, no thoughts of upgrading the carriage system to actually carrying more than a woman would put in her purse.

    Bag design is hard. Can't please everyone.

    That would be totally fine and much appreciated. I just need an idea, since i'm pretty sure the only colors for those two i'm seeing in my mind are noot real accurate and those two sound like they'd be what would work best.

    The only part, phoenix :nodding: I don't really cook so I've been living off oatmeal, peanuts, and cottage cheese mostly... sadly not exaggerating that.

    Piss me of no, I just wont buy one ;)

    All I want is a double width portfolio, so it can fit a laptop and a couple extra things, in a nice quality without having to pay and arm and a leg, but that doesn't exists. :fu:
