"So, I've decided to take my work back underground. To stop it falling into the wrong hands."

Here are the full, finished, supplier confirmed images of the new kit and spec. I have been working immensely long and hard with the supplier to get every item spot on, so here you go. Samples are on the way, and I will have pricing with you as soon as I confirm. I have negotiated in full Vice President of Pierce and Pierce mode to get the price as low as I can for you all, and even with the dropping yen, I have managed to get something decent for you (especially given the spec). Again more on that later, when I get confirmation.

The technical spec is way up on the previous kit, and applies to both women's and men's versions. I have opted for an even better pad than we had in the previous version of the shorts, and this is going into the new tights too. Also, I have taken into account every comment and suggestion people have made about the current kit, and addressed them where possible. Obviously you can't please all of the people, all of the time, but I feel that what we have here represents the best middle ground on all requests made. So there.

Thanks a lot!

Yeah, this is absolutely the top of the line gear. Can't wait to get the samples, which I shall be swanning around in to ensure it is up to all of your exacting standards.

One thing that looks 'odd' is when the Tokyo leaf is not straight up and down. Looks a bit like an accent mark above the O for example. Could just be how it is being rendered in the graphics but thought i'd mention it.

Cracking stuff, Owen.

There wasn't really much info about the jacket. What does it have in terms of pockets and vents? Is it a light jobby or full deep winter thermal experience?
Does it and the other tops have zip cover bits at the top?

I am shaking my son's piggy bank right now and considering the value of my superfluous kidney. I will have it all!

This is a rendering thing; I will be getting the full patterns next week, and will be thoroughly checking every angle before I send it to print. Cheers for the comment.

Jacket; this is a super light weight wind breaker. No pockets, just a simple wind breaker that will roll up and fit in a back pocket. I will get more info on it when the supplier opens again on Monday, but that is the basic info for now.

Cheers.

Nice one.

Some additional notes;

I have lightened up the overall tone of the items for the hardcore monitor crew who were having trouble seeing the work I did before. On the actual garments, the blacks will be the blackest ever black.

Thanks again for the kind comments.

Ordering will begin once I have checked all the printing patterns, and seen the samples. That will be coming very soon, and as this will be the 4th time we have used the same supplier, we can get things running very fast.

Wow! the kit looks nice - is there any information on the price? I apologize if this has already been discussed.
