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.

    I soaked my Lee 101B that I got from the Edwin store in Harajuku recently but for some reason, the water turned a bit yellow instead of blue like it usually has when I've soaked my other jeans. Is this normal? Here's a picture: [​IMG] However, when I saw that, I drained the water and flipped it from inside out and I stuck it back in the tub and the water turned blue like usual

    You're not supposed to piss on your jeans, dude. You soak with water.

    I thought that the yellow was ammonia they use when doing the indigo dye process ?

    I get yellow/brown water quite often when I've worn my jeans clubbing - soaked-up cigarette smoke!

    Kinda makes you worry how much your lungs are absorbing...
