    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.

    The calf is good. It's a bit like good denim. [​IMG] It will become better and better each day.

    Got my minimalist DR. Fit is great, leather thickness varies noticeably from top of arm to underneath. Black dye is coming off on my fingertips. Will a rinse help with that?
    What did you get? I'm curious to know why the black dye is coming off and leather thickness varies.

    Lamb. When I handle the jacket I end up with dye on my fingertips, almost like reading a newspaper. The leather is remarkably thick on the outside panel of the sleeve, while the underside feels almost half as thick in a pinch test. I realize it's animal skin and isn't perfect. Didn't expect perfect. I don't know, maybe I'm just a noob at this leather jacket game.

    My bcdr is thin everywhere but especially the back of the arms/elbows. Different texture too.

    [​IMG] LET'S DO THIS (i realize this shop is just terrible) i realize that you said something about not being able to do snake lapel, any possibility of a snake inset panel on the lapel like this: http://img337.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/u...yjeay82907.jpg would sure be nice ;__;

    Interesting you chose minimalist DR as a base. I would've thought one of the more out-there models. Also wouldn't you want leather pulls on all the zips? I'm just trying to think like Uncontrol here.

    I like the minimalist cut the most, there's something more "aggressive" about the shape to me. As for the leather pulls, well, I think four is enough [​IMG] Though I'd be fine either way, haha!

    unlike other responses of "that's cool but I wouldn't wear that myself", I would totally wear something like that if I was uncontrol's size

    I would totally wear that minus snakeskin. Laced cuff option would be sweet.

    Yeah thats why I love my calf bomber. I can see the changes month by month. Really starting to fit nice and be a bit more flexible. Love it.[​IMG] toj

    That.... is heavy dude. I still gotta enquire about snake pricing. If I got snake, there'd be tons of it because the pieces are big, but like I said, a snake is thin so you can't pave things in it, just little detailing and stuff mainly. The zip surrounds, for sure. The lapels, I don't know, because those go all the way inside too and might be slightly wide, so it'd also be tons of snake wasted that you can't see.
    There is actually no special detail along the main zipper like that, but it could be added in for the Uncontrol Rider.
    I could do tassels everywhere but that might a bit over. I don't know. I think tassels on the wrists and main and maybe some metal beadwork I have in mind might be enough. Hardware would all be gunmetal because that's what I've got.

    Well maybe we could do a panel on the lapel? I wouldn't want to waste any. I agree with you on the tassels, they'll lose their impact if we put them everywhere. Was hoping for silver hardware, but I'll live with gunmetal.

    Curious about the beadwork!

    Anyway, do you want me to send a &quot;deposit&quot; or anything like that so you know I'm not jerking you around?
