How is the zipper on the steelfeathers? It's not very often you see zip flys on unsanfornized denim.

Good to hear I have a friend with a pair and he said no issues. Just that it was a little weird at first since he's use to a button fly. Have you soaked them, and did the zipper work better or worse after?

Ok some photos of my steel feathers and repairs. Missing a photo of where we had to cut the fly right down the bottom to thread the zip back on. Got a little excited that my feathers were back in business.

Announcement

It is with immense frustration and disappointment that I must announce that the sponsorship of The Denim Vault has been withdrawn from the HWDC2.

The reason behind this is that we have quite a few contestants (myself included) who have not yet received their sponsor tees, I have personally been promised the tracking numbers for the shipments by Vincent twice, and he has also ignored approximately 11 further emails asking for information about what is happening. If I cannot trust a sponsor then I cannot work with them.

I am extremely sorry to all those members who have not received their shirts, and to those who had errors made with their order. I advise you to seek a refund using the following email address...

If you have no luck with this then please use the Facebook and Twitter accounts of The Denim Vault to ask directly, and failing that please begin a Paypal dispute for the payment.

If after a period of weeks we have not reached a satisfactory conclusion of refund, please contact me and I will refund you from my own pocket in the order contacted, and as my personal funds allow. If we have to take this final option then I am afraid that the second HWDC meet in San Francisco may be in jeopardy, as I simply will not be able to afford it.

Once again, my most sincere apologies. Can I ask that we keep the discussion on this to a minimum, if you have any further questions please contact me directly.

Thank you Todd, but I cannot see anyone out of pocket for my error of judgement.

That is a shame to hear Mega.

I also found that ordering jeans (IHxBBxOD's) from Vincent a while ago to be very frustrating.

I did eventually receive them but the communication was poor at best.

I hope everyone that ordered them will receive their T's and that the Competition events can continue unaffected.

Good Luck

I have enlisted the help of Kayodic for the benefit of everyone affected. She's in Jakarta for the weekend, so she's contacted Vincent, relaying all the information above. She has, on behalf of everyone, demanded a refund for all the undelivered T-shirt orders. We'll know in the next 3 days if all of this has taken any weight with him. For now, everyone involved should email, tweet and fb comment on the TDV wall.

Times are tough for a lot of people without something like this and Mega...you shouldn't be out of pocket for this; it definitely isn't your fault!

I for one would be happy to donate to a HWDC fund to help anyone who hasn't had their order.

I want you all to know that if you have not received your HWDC#2 shirts from me please let me know and I will check into it ASAP.

So sorry to hear about the problems with the other shirts and I certainly hope you don't blame Mega for any of this. If he had full control of this you all would have your shirts by now.
