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.

    Drew, is this you in the pictures? If so, the jacket makes you look a bit bigger (as in more muscle mass). Also, what brand is that v neck? I think the length works great with the DR and I've been looking for something similar to wear with mine. The hunt for the perfect t shirt continues for me. [​IMG]

    yeah it's me, but I think I'm naturally built a little bigger torso-wise than my height/weight suggests. I don't lift weights or anything, just skinny legged (no centaur)

    Tee is Uniqlo 'premium cotton' - i don't know if they have them there or not, I wear Korean size XL in them and they're still a little small for my liking, and I'm a true size XS in reality, lol

    I actually like leather pants. I think they look cool as fuck when designed right and worn by someone with incredible swagger. But I forecast that I'd sell about 2 pairs of them over the span of about a year, so those are out.

    I will pre-order. (0)

    What about denim jacket with leather sleeves or leather body with knitted sleeves or other different combos of materials?

    those would cost about $500 or even a little more. We can't easily get denim distressed so that's also a hurdle to that. Better would be to find your own vintage denim jacket that fits well and chop the sleeves off, and wear as a vest over your leather jackets (TOJ of course) [​IMG]

    Also, is the new DR going to be made by the same dude(s) that do the old DR? If so, you're going to kill him (them). Lol.

    Random question, but are you going to offer FQHH in colours other than brown/russet? Trying to think ahead.

    the tribe has spoken. I'd also consider a navy or white thick cotton/canvas jacket with a point collar (leather collar?) (shape of your bomber collar) and blistered sleeves. or something like my 5-button Cloak jacket with a slimmer body and leather sleeves. Might help those of us looking for a bit more edge find something from you with a lower material upcharge?

    Hanes S and the Korean uniqlo size XL fit about the same after a wash, but the Uniqlo is like an inch or two longer, it's more than noticeable. The sleeves on the Uniqlo are actually shorter by like a half inch or so, but I'd pick longer body length over the sleeves. Also, I don't like the thick neckband on Hanes as much as the thin one on the Uniqlos and the feel is much nicer, fabric is thicker and softer. Worth it.

    Drkshdw actually made blistered lamb detroits this past FW I believe. He's obviously right that leather pants would be a pretty tough sell. I mean think about how much trouble backpacks were to move... and backpacks are easy inventory. A simple leather shirtjack would be hopping on a bandwagon somewhat but would move a lot easier than the pants.
