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,

    Well I imagine that's the big thing, finding a good hide for a full back. It's definitely luxe to have it, though.

    you guys shouldn't center those zipper pulls -_- Wear it naturally. Also, it looks better a bit floppy and smashed down, abstract looking.

    This is the best/fairest etiquette, though it's hard for people to understand an abide by. The nature of forums gives everybody license to blab more than is needed. The upside, as was said, is that other users can give insight to products and the end experience (which is hard for even the seller to give, as they're in the middle of that process) - and that's useful as an objective standpoint from which to make your judgement - but there's the obvious downside too, in which we start delving into what is frankly speaking, stupid discussion regarding things like zippers, quality, and all manners of things which no one else really knows enough about to speak on. The other downside is that if people get something that doesn't work for some reason, they often take it straight the forums, straight to people who can't help - whereas if they bring the issue to us, we fix it. On other sites where TOJ is discussed, the words vary from kind to scathing, and the latter is often simply trollish non-owners dropping their 2 yen into cyberspace, unnecessarily. I have no desire to chase down and post on every site where TOJ or my name comes up, and you have to take everything with a grain of salt - do you guys remember that guy who took an ill-fitting jacket to baseline measure and then sent us the measurements for a varsity vis a vis without using any common sense to adjust the measurements to his liking, and then posting back in anger that the jacket didn't fit as he wanted it to? He's over on Niketalk using every post that TOJ comes up in to rag on us, and you know, come on. Idiocy. To be completely honest, with people who have gone on the forums on rampages about issues that could've been fixed had they brought it to us instead - I often get put off and feel less inclined to service those people, as would many. In worst case scenarios, there was indeed a blacklist where we just didn't allow certain names to order from us again. One's experience is not another's, but we have always tried to deliver the best for each person - that's why we never got rid of the one by one ordering system. Every piece made has a person's name attached to it, and at work we can discuss them by piece, i.e. 'is James' jacket finished yet? Paul wants a detail change. Chris from Alberta needs some extra snaps included with his jacket that's going out' and so on, and so on. We know your names and your orders just like a restaurant kitchen does, but this thread wasn't really intended to be the TOJ yelp space....

    Still looking for a space that works. It could be a long waiting game, or a short one, but I have no idea tbh. :( In the meantime we are still taking orders for a little longer (maybe a week or two? I will decide later once I calculate some production-side things), as we are sort of in pause on the restaurant til a location comes to light. As you can see, there was a spurt where production time got longer for awhile and then we had a lower sales period some months back, and so the queue advanced quickly and you're seeing shorter lead times nowadays. I said that awhile back but it was probably hard to envision. It's like a queue at a restaurant and then suddenly a big 20-person banquet table clears out, and the line starts dissipating all of a sudden. With the cutoff orders, I'm gonna try spreading the production out a bit more to equalize work loads at the various workshops, thereby reducing the lead times to as low as they can go (they will still be plenty long, especially for people ordering towards the end of this, but it's the best we can do)

    Drew most likely a stupid question, but I assume you are in talks with letting agents, as they could have/has pocket listings.

    The canadian / US exchange rate is almost the same, so that wouldn't make a difference.



    Other countries have Aus, cad or HK etc., in front of the $ sign.

    Except it is relevant if I'm a seller and I'm receiving payments that are 6% under my requested figure.


    Exactly.

    I'm paying 8% more for USD goods, so I wouldn't say it doesn't make a difference especially when you're dropping large sums of money.

    He didn't get a simple Yes/No answer because had he Ctrl+F "USD" on the first page, he would have found this useful post that answers this question.


    People that don't take the time to search before posting will never get a serious answer.

    Though one could argue that the time spent making sarcastic remarks could be utilized to answer the original question.

    And in similar instances something priced in USD would state US$. The JC website just states $.

    The difference according to my calculations are 0.04 cent.



    99,9% of the time $ means US, unless otherwise stated.
