    Just noticed some trends and heads up for ya guys: taobao mobile version shows obviously less new fake models these days, on the other hand, ebay and yahoo jp do have some constant fake shit popping up which might tell the export of faking items adjusted quite a bit. Sometimes the fake is bit tricky like last time around i just met a p23ts-s with a japanese retail label copied, and again, lmao, they copy some schoeller labels too. then again, least keeping all trades under paypal or your credit card company protection once you got your goods in hand and turns out somethings unauthentic.

    I know I'm going to regret this, as I want one real bad... but my boy @Xu Jianfeng is looking for a J56-S!

    Is it just me, or are the fakes getting better? This one certainly seems a lot easier to mistake for authentic, esp. when compared to the trash that has surfaced on eBay.

    much obviously fuzzier than real DS **edit** and yes i mean P24A-DS when you turn up the hem it resembles fleece (but a VERY mild version is that makes sense) stitching etc is actually DECENT, also no one will pay that close attention, i'd kick you in the eye if you came that close to my pants lol pockets on the inside have a much brighter sheen than real ACR, and the size tag comes off the pockets after a few washes how do i know all this? i bought a pair to bash around in on trips where i don't want to worry about my thousand dollar pants getting ruined, but still look steezy having both the real ones and the taobao ones i would say: 1. water resistance is similar 2. taobao "DS" is actually slightly more windproof 3. taobao "DS" is warmer (i personally prefer the real thing because i live in the tropics) 4. taobao "DS" is stretchier and a little more durable 5. the ammo pockets with the pop buttons are super high quality construction on the authentic pair, the fake ones feel like they may fall off after a few uses that said, a very decent pair of pants for 80 bucks is it worth spending about 80 bucks on a pair just to see the style? YMMV i suppose nothing beats wearing a real ACR

    If I was to pickup my first pair of Veilance pants, which would you guys recommend? I'm relatively short and stocky (big thighs from gymming), so was looking at something that is a bit more cropped..

    Anyone have experience repairing stotz? My P20s tore by the front pocket and the fabric is really frayed at the seams.

    @g.m start high and bring it down if it doesn't sell. older, worn, and less in-demand items like yours can still fetch at least $500 USD. 650 sounds like a good starting point. edit: also, please post in the "community sales thread"

    THIS OR THAT? (Use me for all your Should I Buy...? questions)

    Thanks, all. Despite the price tag, I ultimately decided to spring for some brown MF Shipyard Chinos (rather than the Sportsman). Compared to jeans, pants have been much harder for me to get enthusiastic about at these prices. But I think these MFs are distinct enough from a run of the mill chino/fatigue look without being too over-the-top, which means I'll actually want to wear them consistently. The Stan Ray option is definitely one I'll keep in my back pocket; thanks for the tip.

    Hi guys, I am looking for a price check or an interest check on my S-J14. It's from SS10 and a size large, unfortunately I do not have the bag or specsheet, and the jacket originally came with a 3A-SR1, which I do not have either. Good condition overall, with a very small hole in one sleeve and a partially cut pull tab on one side. Probably a 7.5/10 considering age. How much do you guys think I should put this up for on the sales thread? Thanks in advance. Also I'm posting it here because it's quite an old item and not much info is available online.

    Do you want it match a black Stotz jacket or GT shell? Cause they're different shades of black. My black Stotz & DS pants are darker than my black shells.

    Thanks so much for the thorough response. And I also am hopeful for an updated J1A-S, the stotz and wider cut compared to GT are a very alluring combo.

    For a roughly 13 year old jacket, the epic jacket is only epic in name at this point when it comes to weather resistance. I wouldn't go out into anything more than a light shower. In its defense, I haven't gotten around to cleaning it properly but as it stands, it's about as waterproof as a lightweight cotton jacket. I think that's one reason why it's been able to stay dark. It's only started to fray at the cuffs and it's dark-medium grey around high wear areas like the underside of the button snap for the gravity pockets. There are some small holes here and there but it's mostly been localized to around the cuffs. It blocks wind fairly well but in colder weather I would definitely wear a fleece or some sort of insulator underneath. I think back in the day the "ergonomic" design was mostly just a more generous cut with some cool pattern shapes so you can layer a lot under the e-j1a. That being said, it's a great jacket to wear pretty much any time when it isn't raining heavily. The softness of the epic cotton is nice and it dries fairly quickly in my experience. It actually drapes a little differently because of how soft the fabric is. My main design gripe with the e-j1a is the velcro along the front. It catches on the webbing on the 3a-1 strap and pretty much anything else. Even the webbing that you thread your earphone cables through - it's fuzzy because of the velcro. I think it was a great move on their part to move towards the snaps (which started in 08 for the j1a models I think). I would say that I'm partial to stotz because I like the texture a little more and I actually prefer the stiffness of it (even though I do like the softness of epic). Just a personal thing. I would really love to see a j1a-s update with the newer cut and a decked out flak pocket like it is on the older j1a iterations. But I don't think they would because that inner zip is now an opening for your insulator's chest pocket.

    I'm glad I skipped out on these - not that they're not great (they are), but I'm still getting so much enjoyment out of my Big Bro 2s (4 years on), which to me are the perfect blend of fit & details for this denim. Now if someone had a new/little-worn pair of Buck-Tites they were willing to part with (preferably size 30/31) they were willing to part with...

    ^ you mean the Canvas Pant? Think that was as close to 'jeans' as they've come before - unless I'm blanking on something...
