    Colors with the same name will vary given the materials are different and probably take on dye differently. My peat voronois had a warmer/orange undertone whereas my peat galvanic is much more muted/brown

    Hi everyone!! a few days late reporting on these — in the middle of writing my thesis this month lol. But i will try my darndest to have some fun for the sake of our co-entertainment! before that, though, some dry pics: here’s what I wore this morning! The weather, as you might assume, is cold, wet, rainy, formerly snowy, cloudy, dark, and shit. but the school I go to recently purchased sun lamps so things are hunky dory as can be! these have been my two friends over the past couple days! currently writing the introduction to my thesis, which consists of redefining the word “queer” outside of the essentialist-antiessentialist debate — which is to say outside of most current conceptions of identity (politics). in short, i don’t believe that a group can be accurately labeled by an identity (ie. i wouldn’t expect a member of this forum to speak on behalf of, or represent, everyone on the forum—same goes for race, gender, etc) and yet simultaneously acknowledge the utility of grouping people (forum members) and addressing and describing them as a group. so it’s a bit of a difficult line to walk as far as finding the middle ground. But it’s coming! in other news, I helped convert my partner’s jeans from (broken) zipper to button fly: and gave my roommate a tattoo: and went to a cool talk on variant indigo synthesis!! I’ll link some papers if anyone is interested — not necessarily tied to indigo as a fabric but still very interesting. ok gotta go back to writing for the night but will update with cool things soon!!

    Yeah, I tried on both an M and L, and the roominess was fine on both, but I preferred the added sleeve and body length. It seems like Acronym made a concerted effort with this jacket to have whatever sleeve you are wearing underneath come through at the opening so they made the sleeves shorter, more along the lines of a traditional top coat.

    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..
  11. Acronym.

    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
  13. Acronym.

    @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!

  23. 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?
  25. Give a call to Hudson Hill in Greensboro if you're looking for more Cone fabric! I no longer live in Greensboro unfortunately .
