Same here. If I ask nicely, they will usually send me an inventory pic.

@mikebarhoot they have that on the invoice when you order too. Sounds like a conglomeration of Paula and Giles.
Please tag me @Filthy if you respond or wish to get my attention. I don't read every post here.

We have got EV SSL (see here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Extended_Validation_Certificate ), which is a good thing.  But what I did not realise was that we have to show the registered company name in the address bar.  Paugil Ltd is our registered name (I never thought it would matter what we called ourselves.......I am in the process of changing the company name to something Iron Heart International Ltd....

So I used to see these kinds of pockets and think it was just Japanese designers trying to spice up old designs, like those weird, off-center, slanty pocket flaps The Flat Head loves. But then I saw this kind of pocket watching The Man in the High Castle, which is generally pretty meticulous about period correct repro. This lead me to believe that sometime in the primordial past of workwear, this pocket served some sort of function. Figured someone here could explain.

I believe it's a cigarette pocket: https://www.google.com/patents/US2358137

Interesting / cool, but I don't understand how this makes getting a cigarette any easier.

Maybe it's so that you don't have to actually take the pack out of the pocket? I'm not entirely sure to be honest, never used a pocket like that for cigarettes.
Maybe it's so that you can button the pocket without smashing the pack, where a pack in a normal shirt pocket would block the button enclosure?

I only have ever smoked "old man" cigarettes. Luckies, then Pall Malls, then Camel straights, so I get the soft pack thing. I guess I just never thought reaching into regular pockets was difficult and necessitated engineering of new types of pockets. Maybe I just need to try it and I'll love it.

OK.  We have changed our registered company name to Iron Heart International Ltd, so once things have filtered through the systems, we will see that in the browser address bar, not Paugil Ltd.....

I've wondered as well about the pocket. They're fugly and don't seem that useful.

Yes, big turn-off in my opinion as well.

One of the things I love about IH is that they don't feel the need to do "wacky" shit like this or the slanted pockets.
