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,

    I feel bad for all the wallet-waiters who have prolonged purchasing a wallet, suffering with their cash balled up in pockets all this time. Damn you, Drew. DAMN YOU!

    Hi, I am new to this thread. Sorry I don't have time to read all 3000+ pages but just wanna share my case with you all.
    I have placed an order for a suiting wool MA-1 ($450) on 14/4/2014 and since then I failed to contacted the TOJ seller. I contacted paypal centre HK in this morning, they just asked me to contact the cardcentre and paypal will not do anything for this case....Damn....

    i just want to thank Fok for locking drew's account, a crucial part of being able to successfully file a chargeback is having the "last promised date of delivery", had Fok not locked his account drew likely would have snake edited his post, which would make chargeback a lot harder

    I bought my spot from someone else. Is there any recourse for me? (Sorry have not been following this thread)

    fwiw, we can track those edits, if they had, or have, happened.

    For the love of God, remove Distorbiant and peternorth from that list.

    We're at 196 confirmed unfulfilled orders now. Can someone who has access to the spreadsheet tally dollar amount?

    In no way blaming the victim, but it is indeed sad that at exactly 52 weeks ago from today when orders were already up to 25 weeks over the original quoted delivery dates when one glances at the comments in this thread from June 9, 10, 11, 2014 there was way too much optimism for deliveries and vitriol against the sceptical voices (however few they were). (Nepats, I'm surprised you bought in. When? You were one of those sceptics a year ago.) Of course prudence is being constituted retroactively here and so is quite useless and unhelpful.


    On the matter of him, Drew, selling some aspects of his business. There was some Korean leather jacket business referenced in this thread or the leather jacket thread a while ago, but not that long ago, possibly as an example of TOJ knockoffs, I can't quite remember the context. I was surprised by that link because the jackets were indeed very toj-esque. Now, pardon the flight of fancy here, but is it at all possible that Drew might be a silent partner in that or that he sold his patterns to them? Quite likely pure coincidence, but Korea is not exactly a leather jacket making hub, and so I find the casual, and possibly mistaken, connection between the emergence of one (though I don't want to confuse its being reported here with its emergence there) and demise of the other interesting. A very haphazardly conceived connection at any rate.

    Anyone have a link to that brand?

    Total has always been the top row 3rd cell in the spreadsheet, since it was started.

    Oh wow. I haven't checked in here for a long time. Found out about the fiasco through reddit. I guess I'll add myself to the list. http://i.imgur.com/hcvYhmF.jpg

    Ding, ding, ding. Well we've made it. 2 hundo. Jeezus.


    (I actually was pretty sure it would exceed 200. When I emailed one of the attorneys in Seoul the other say I said there were 200+ aggrieved customers and at the time we were around 150.)
