"False Alarm" as in the pants are NOT being produced? Or "false alarm" for lack of recent announcements on new products on this message board?

I really like the looks of those. They really seem to capture that Raiders look in these photos even without someone wearing them. Looking forward to seeing more.

Platon, please make a run of these. Several members, including myself, have waited a LONG time for these. I'm in for a pair if you're taking preorders.

Where do you guys find this stuff? I went to BK's website and saw no mention. Is there a list I need to get on? Platon mentioned in another thread about an interest list for a new jacket offering that I'd never heard of.

The lack of announcements is my fault. Andy of BK writes in COW and TFL and I am supposed to be writing here and at VLJ. Like for sharing the workload.

I was the one pushing BK to do the pants because I knew the pants could be improved from the last version of Paris pants, if anyone remembers that. The trouble was and still is that the amount of work for the pants is so much and complicated that no tailor was willing to do it. Now there is a possibility that BK starts to be making the pants in house, which is a great thing as they have all that it takes to produce a high quality and detailed garment.

Times are difficult and they want to concentrate on the leather jackets first, but I am very positive that somewhere down the road they will make them and I am sure when the do, the pants will look much better than the photos you have seen.

Platon, I know this is months late, but if there is ever an interest list. Put me on it. I want nothing more than a nice pair of pants.
