Against AIDS Gala, but be warned: daydreaming is likely. marc jacobs bags Those gauzy shirts and un-finished hems may not be available until Winter's wrath starts to wane, but you can get your paws on this up-and-comer's Autumn/Winter collection now. And in terms of staying cosy, the latter wins - hands down. Originally worn by sailors on the high sea, the hip-hugging classic features broad lapels and a chan luu-breasted front - but it can be tricked up with epaulettes, gold buttons, hoods and mid-thigh lengths. Whether you want to wear open to maximize your layering options or top-button to create a '60 inspired shell shape, this is one that is well worth investing in.A pair of fitness gloves like these, Sacre bleau! chan luu bracelet has done it. J.Lo is certainly no stranger to it. The 2013 Marc By Marc Jacobs Clutch Express Fashion Export Scholarship is looking for an emerging Australian label who has been exporting its designs no longer than four years. The recipient of the scholarship will receive $10,000 worth of international freight services, as well as a coveted one-on-one appointment with the buying team from Marc By Marc Jacobs - both coach outlet online stepping stones to turning a local label into an internationally recognised brand. Our own Megan went commando at Cannes and heck!

This is just vaporware. Still waiting. September 2012. :(
Do you think we are all fools........

Worst project I have backed. still waiting for it to arrive. Given up all hope.

Mar 16, 2012

Homemade. I wish it was better, but sadly it is not. Gave benefit of doubt. Wish I had not. How to use other people's money and under deliver on the hype. We all waited, and waited, and the waited some more. Tired of the excuses. Waste of time.

I would love to buy the backcountry boiler instead of the mkettle but I am really tired of scouring the net looking for a way to purchase it. If you are going to complain about getting ripped off you might want to look into product availability.

Real disappointment. This guy had so long to make something nice and squander it, with a makeshift burred up kettle. Shame on you.

This is the old design. The stopper has been redesigned and there is an alcohol stove insert you can use instead of wood.

Nice. Impressive boil time.

Nov 08, 2011

Great review! Interesting concept, but seems like the design could use some additional refinements like a better stopper system and sturdier base. $100 seems pretty steep as well, but gotta appreciate an independent developer/startup business.

I like my Kelly Kettle. Even though it's bigger and heavier, I can cook on it, and it holds more water.
