    • Anyone have thoughts on the P24-S? Looking to pick up my first pair of ACR pants. These don't seem to get much love from this past drop, but curious to see what people think and/or some fit pics. All the retailer pics I've seen look terrible except for ACR's site (not surprised).
    •   Love your shit, very interesting. My interest is leather so I'm working on my first jacket project. Hopefully it's unique enough to get some feedback  
    • Yohji Yamamoto, Rick Owens, Raf Simons, Tom Ford, Hedi Slimane, Helmut Lang, Alber Elbaz, etc. but my taste does change from time to time.
    • Hey, I've seen similar discussions in the past on Style Forum in the context of bespoke Goodyear welted shoes. As far as my conversations with cobblers and other shoe enthusiasts go, there does not seem to be much anecdotal or hard evidence to suggest gemming with linen canvas is a less secure method than other methods of attaching the insole to the welt. I've never seen or heard welts 'failing' in real life, and most people talk about gemming vs channel stitch in terms of number of potential resoles (i.e. how many decades), not whether the construct fails within a few years. The ironic thing is that people who would care about this usually have way too many shoes and boots for any of their footwear to reach the final re-build.  Good on Viberg for wanting to produce a more traditional GYW, but as with anything from manufacturers & shops, a bit of retail spin is to be expected. The GYW market is, after all, much more saturated & competitive compared with their traditional Pacific NW stitch-down market - spend a couple hundred more than a pair of Viberg's and you can have higher end custom or even bespoke - so naturally they'll be wanting to differentiate themselves somehow.   Edit: Short version of what I'm typing is that...I wouldn't buy a particular brand based on the lone fact they use channelled insole rather than linen gemming. 
    • How does that fit if you don't mind me asking? What's your size/weight? Been thinking to cop... M looks huge on Errolson in the photos.
