    I'll like to know this too. I've actually already pulled the trigger on the Peat Monitor Down, but haven't received it yet.. I loved the look of it in Haven's product shots, but then on AV's site its more a forest green..

    Yeah I was gonna say. I tried on my normal size (M) and found it to be pretty roomy. Should be able to get a few layers in under the J62 if you went tts.

    there's a little bunching like that. looks worse in the photo. it's normal. @Yoshiii pm me if you have serious interest in buying a medium

    @RapGameTaylorSwift it's a great jacket! I'm glad you like it so much. It definitely was a sleeper hit compared to other pieces frequently spoken about. Although I personally wouldn't size up unless you're in between sizes. I'll let you know if there's bunching in the hood once I get home.

    not sure if this was common knowledge on sufu, but I just discovered it. I'm always complaining about the photo quality on sufu when you upload an image-- even with a real camera. BUT I discovered if you're view sufu on a computer (not a phone) and you click on the image, you are able to see the image with the original quality... just thought others would like to know.

    please elaborate?

    Tried on J62-S briefly and I must say that it is an amazing jacket indeed. If only J62-PB came with a hood as well

    Of all the 'complications', rings, chimes, and alarms on mechanical watches are the most intriguing to me. As a side note, I'm in the middle of researching Grand Seiko; I'm starting to get it.

    Glad to hear good words about the J62-S. Was really interested in picking it up but as normal, I was a bit slow and it sold out. I think next time instead of pondering the purchase I'll just have to pull the trigger. It's a hassle I always try to avoid but I can always return it

    A quick Interweb search provides this link. Not many sizes left but there might be more in the shops if you can suffer the ignominy of going into one!

  16. Happy Jeans - Tcb 20s contest thread

    Over the weekend I went backpacking for a few days in Northern California/Oregon. Didn’t wear my 20s as my camping backpack puts a lot of weight on the waist where the suspenders buttons are but I figure I’d post the pics from the trip anyway. Did a lot of hiking and hot spring swimming and had to climb over a rock slide to continue on our way. Photos are a mix of iPhone and fujifilm xt20

    Been field testing the J62-S for the last few weeks, and thought I'd share some impressions. Overall, it might be the best ACR jacket I've ever owned. I sized up from an M to an L because the fit was profile, and I wanted more of a straight fit. Sizing up still keeps its tailored shape, but with a slightly longer sleeve. I also love the added length. So far I've found it amazing to layer with, especially in combination with a J58. It's a great everyday piece too. I can wear it all day at work, and then if I go out that night, it transitions extremely well. Initially, I was worried I might not love the minimal amount of pockets, especially with no zippers, but the two pockets are so deep, there is actually more total storage space than other ACR jackets with more pockets. You also quickly get used to the double single welt pockets that do a fine job at keeping everything secure. I can fit an entire book, gloves, wallet, etc. with zero bulk. The only negative I've found with the jacket is the hood seems to have an excess of fabric, and if this is done for a reason, I can't figure out why. I mostly wear it without the hood, as I think it looks cleaner without it, but in snow or rain, I'll snap it back on. All in all, I can't recommend this piece enough. Definitely one of the more slept on pieces of FW17. I've attached a photo of the hood to show what I'm talking about (intentionally bunched up to show the amount of excess). Does anyone think its actually a error and not intentional?
  18. Give a call to Hudson Hill in Greensboro if you're looking for more Cone fabric! I no longer live in Greensboro unfortunately .

    Has anyone bought the peat monitor down? Looks like a great colour but I've only seen them in studio shots. Also, do AV's colour vary even though they're called the same name? The peat monitor down looks different than the peat field pants. Also, I've seen several shades of soot across their pieces.
  22. Picked up a pair of Cone Denim from the "Next" Sale - £23 great fabric and cut jeans I have to say. The pocket bags are virtually the same if not the same as LVC

    Haven't seen the goretex Sk8-Hi mentioned yet: They've been extremely good at keeping my feet warm and dry on a very chilly trip to Detroit.

    Yea, I haven't washed my 107 yet, but the denim seems pretty forgiving. When I first bought mine, it felt snug in waist and top block, but it's loosened up well.
