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,

    Much appreciated.

    Charly confirmed the spots can be sold, with the above proviso. And as far as I know, you can change the order as you see fit (I.e. my order is for a black lamb CWU-45 but you could change it to moto in a different leather or whatever you want)

    Anyone looking for a full leather get at me.

    What should the ideal sleeve length be for a MDR?
    At the middle of your palm? Where the hand widens below the wrist? On the wrist?

    Right where the hand widens to the palm, slightly below the wrist (.25" below or so") is what I prefer

    It just means then that the one who gets a refund and not the one selling the spot gets blacklisted, right?

    First, this really isn't such a bad thing if you only want one jacket and want to have it earlier especially with TOJ "closing" and the turnaround times not getting any better as of now. Second, with Drew wanting to sell TOJ and if it does happen, the new owner might rethink some of the cases of blacklisting. One can hope the new owner will be considerate of the reasons why somebody asked for a refund especially given the current situation. I know I would be but then again, I know I'm not the one that will be purchasing the company. :D

    But if you actually want to purchase a jacket first to see if you'll like it and also want it sooner, then buy that earlier spot and keep your original spot as well. If it turns out you like the jacket and want another one, then you don't have to be at the back of the line (unless you already are. Ha ha ha!) If you didn't feel it was worth it, you can sell your spot to somebody else.

    On a side note. I have a friend who opened a restaurant years ago. When it started, it took most of his time. For more than a year, almost all of his time was spent on managing the restaurant and getting a foothold in the business. The only time we got to hang out with him was when we visited him at his restaurant. Drew just started his, so that's why I'm assuming it is consuming most of his time which I can understand. However, I don't think it's right that the situation with jackets is not being regularly addressed either.

    and here is the video of their SS15 collection:

    after watching this video, I like this backpack a little more than Haerfest's.

    No, I meant their briefcase. You can see it for a few seconds in the video but it's hard to get a grasp on the sizing.

    It's about the height/width of a toj tote. An inch shorter. There's measurements on the website too.

    I wonder if anyone has died while waiting for their jacket.

    Kind of a lot considering a lot of us during this time were probably quoted 20 weeks. Understandably there have been a few delays as well as other projects, but it still feels like an absurd delay.

    Didn't get a quote for estimated delivery time (nor did I ask) but Drew's guess was 3-6 months back then (10th of June 2013).
