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.

    Cheers,

    hope you'll be impressed with it. They'll probably need a quick wash and a press (they're prewashed to shrink the fabric, but just to rinse any workshop dust off it) and they should be great. There's a few more we didn't send today as we ran out of buttons and gotta go pick those up Monday, finish the last of those shirts, then send them out mid-week.

    Roll around in pulverized coal/burnt charcoal. :laugh:

    I've heard that leathers have been treated with lanolin, so if the shine you're worried about is caused or amplified by that, you could try Fiebings' deglazer or giving it a wash like others have done with their lamb jackets. On another forum, someone reported that rubbing alcohol gave their leather a matte finish, but I don't think that they used it on goat or a textured leather - try at your own risk.

    navy is... navy colored. It's far too hard to capture accurately on computer perfectly, and far too easy to simply imagine. We go for dark navy tones. That's pretty much all there is.

    Ugh. After much wrestling and infinite headaches (for Drew & co too) over my black calf 48 2010DR, I think I might just need to reorder for a 49. :(

    Still feel like these shoulders are too narrow, but I am now 100% convinced that Drew's 1.05 / 1.08 / 1.1 measurement multiplier thing is pretty much perfect for leathers.

    Calf isn't going to fit or drape perfectly out of the box.
