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.

    Motherfucker! I missed another run on the daypacks? That's what I get for leaving SF for a few months. If anyone wants to sell one let me know.

    Curious, have people who bought lamb in the past seen this much grain in their leathers?

    Both my current lamb jackets are quite grainy, in a good way.

    When did you order them?

    The grain on Joona's jacket seems unusually pronounced. TBH, they look like parts of a hide that should be cut around, not used for a jacket.

    Some lambs in the past, which is what I understood lamb to look like (maybe slightly more veiny, but not grainy per se):

    I personally would by a little upset if I had that much grain on my jacket. The MDR I have has very little grain and I love it.

    Yeah I think on the BCDR orders I have, if I got that much grain, I wouldn't be very happy. I imagine there probably isn't a way to "prefer" less grain on your leather though, unfortunately

    That MA-1 grainy as fuck.

    I dunno if I like that much grain. I'm usually a grain-o-holic too.

    I will to that tomorrow if he won't reply my last email with tracking code. He is always saying that he sent the package to me, but on wednesday it will be a month since I sent him the payment and still didn't get anything. But I don't want to write too much until everything will be clear. But it is not normal for a package to be traveling a month from the states to Europe via USPS. Usually it takes 5-10 days.

    It's not unheard of for economy packages, especially if it was sent as consolidated.

    When I used to build cabinets and custom furniture, we'd have a huge fat stack of say... solid walnut. You grab a piece to mill it and if it's not perfect, it gets set aside. Eventually, your perfect pile has dwindled, and you're pulling from the slightly less perfect pile and so on and so forth until you've used up all the usable pieces.

    Maybe something similar happening here? Are we getting to the dregs of the hides? I assume they've bought leather in bulk and they're trying to use it all up (I know nothing about anything, so could be wrong).
