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.

    While not only highly unlikely, this is also unreasonable. How many brands have a medium and a half?

    Eh, many manufacturers have suit/jackets in odd sizes, like 43,45, etc. They aren't super common, but also, not so rare. That said, I am not convinced sizing up really looks that different if you are between sizes.

    Also, as I have said before, TOJ has done this in the past:

    Order size 52, then work off an inch or two at the gym in the next 8 weeks.

    Good to know you are planning to make shoes too. I´d be interested. Before that, do you have any recommendations for me at "proper english derby"? And what do you mean with customized sole?

    Did you talk to him? Or just creep?

    edit - or was he surrounded by the ladies and too busy to talk?

    Am I the only one who never saw someone else with a TOJ in real life? I live in NYC so I'm sure there's a good number of people who has jackets from TOJ

    Yeah, I know there's got to be a decent amount of TOJs here in Chicago but I've never seen anyone else wearing one. That said, there's a lot of brands common on SF that I've never seen anyone wearing in real life..

    I've never seen any TOJ's worn by someone else in real life, only on me.


    This is pretty true. A lot of what I see in WAYWT and other parts of the forum I've never really seen in person. For instance, I've only seen two MMM GATs in real life and they were worn by females :happy:

    Haha, I guess if you take all of Canada into account it is! But I live in Toronto so it's a bit more dense per mile kilometre :D

    So embarrassing. I saw this guy today who I really, really thought was wearing a 2010 DR. I saw him coming down the street, and got all psyched up to say something, and was like yes yes this is it finally another SFer, and I was staring at him and smiling, sort of having hot flashes, like, ohmygod my worlds are colliding, will I be able to handle it? Will I seem cool? Just play it cool. And I was about to open my mouth to say something super nonchalant like "Hey dude. Nice jawnz. TOJ?" And then realized at the last second that it was definitely NOT a TOJ, stopped with my jaw hanging like a confused snake, and stared as he walked past, giving me a terrified sidelong glance. I'm sure he thought I was insane. I felt a little insane.

    Nah, was gonna ask him where he got the jacket but didn't get a chance to as so many other people were leaving the classroom at the same time. I'll definitely ask about it if I see it again. He wasn't really styling it that well though, just raw jeans and a grey hoodie. Looked like a sufu kid.

    No TOJs for me in NYC yet. Did wear my black MMM his to a concert and someone complimented them as I came out of coat check (for my TOJ). Didn't hear him, though, so I pretty much ignored him :)embar:) and my gf told me what he said later.

    Not sure if this has been asked before, my calf is feeling and looking a little dry. What lotions or creams have people used on their calf jackets? I think someone wrote about using obenaufs oil? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
