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.

    Can we hold on sizing questions until the jacket actually exists in a sample size?

    Should lock until prototype feedback is complete. Otherwise you'll have people asking about the packaging that the jackets will ship in before they've even made the prototype.

    I suggest that we do a SF version of this next rather than the moto racer :)

    What modifications would you even do? Max I can see is removing the chest pocket and getting it in a slim fit. Beyond that, it's pretty perfect. And that you can do without SF getting involved.

    Yeah, I guess that I can't really see the point of the extra work.

    That comp leather though. Oh, man.

    Yes, you are both correct, this jacket is already available in Slimfit...the jacket model is the called the Tight Fit Enfield. Comp. Weight Octagon and Black are the two most popular leather choices that our customers order on their Tight Fit Enfield jackets.

    Not a lot it seems as slim fit is already available, though a double zip would be nice.

    I think we ended up with a yoke, split back and modest kidney panel. Like so (side adjusters optional) ...

    Oh, man. I really dislike that yoke. Everything else seems good. Wasn't the original version a single-panel back with a permanent belt attached to it?

    Also this is just an OCD thing but does anyone else think the chest pocket would look cool if it was positioned in line withh the right hand pocket? So the two pockets line up in a straight line?
