1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    It's pretty cold in my office. Zipping the DR all the way up looks weird. This is how I usually wear the DRs, both of them.

    The cuffs...yeah I cuff all of my pants sans trousers made out of wool/cashmere/drapey fabrics. I don't like the stacking effect at all. I originally hemmed them to 32'' and then to 30", haha.

    The DR is as edgy as I get. Although I'm mighty tempted to buy a red calf Moto before the hiatus.

    i don't know what is going on with your cuffs man, if you're wearing a leather you should have them rolled out over the shoes.

    yes, it's exactly that - People ask 'what color is the dark brown goat?' and I think I've said many times (and it's recorded on the site or something) that dark brown goat is nearly black, with only hints of brown in some lights - since people tend to go for the idea of a material's integrity over the color in a 1-2 priority in that case, black goat is more reliable to recommend.

    you're talking about jakekrait? He said he was coming to Tokyo later this summer but hasn't checked into styfo for awhile I think.

    yes that was to you, I see. I was gonna recommend just coming down and getting measured in person but that's alright. At least you will have a chance to check out the TOJ store when it comes to being. :devil:

    hair on hide is one of the easiest ways to ape the look of designer furniture though, can be done with the Chinese fakes and they look half decent for what they are. It's tanned/dyed gull frain leather that sets furniture apart, normally a leather in great leather costs a fortune. Huge markup on leather furniture, even more than the traditional markup on leather garments.

    If I could have my way, I'd have a whole stock of that medium whisky Italian calfskin, and do a chesterfield in it :devil:
