    New Tender day. Those are the 133 high back trews and the FHUTT collab braces. I thought the combo would take some getting used to but it's very comfy. I will post detailed pics once I’ve had the time to take some in daylight.

    As someone who makes a living doing rebrands i can tell you that a rebrand is never 'just a rebrand'. As CB pointed out, a rebrand is the function of a strategic repositioning. So, yes, people will conclude things from rebrands because visual identities have the express purpose of making consumers conclude things about brands. My issue is both with the positioning itself, and with the technical execution of the identity. The repositioning, as you pointed out, has been going on for a while. Nothing new there. The rebrand doesn't make people finally see that, it just drives it home. The technical execution of the identity seems (so far, haven't seen any print materials) lacklustre, not very considered from a brand family perspective and very obviously inspired by current trends. This may be wholly intentional*, or it may be the result of someone trying to 'freshen things up' but in any case it is something that is unsurprisingly going to generate feedback among their (former?) target audience. I'm not sure why that would be contentious. *Shower thought: for a while now, veilance has obviously been moving away from a niche boutique positioning to being waterproof burberry. they might believe their original branding holds them back.

    1. It's interesting to me that it's taken a "rebrand" (and a very mild one at that) to make apparent to people that Veilance has been cutting back on the weirdness and getting more into simple, clean, blank forms. Compare the current version of the Node Down to the Anneal: the Node is loaded up with pockets, it's highly structured, and it's surprisingly full of detail; the Anneal, by comparison, is a very simple, soft, unstructured jacket with a blank face. I could point to other examples, like the old vs. new Graph Cardigan... there's a trend towards blankness and simplicity—true "minimalism" rather than geometry. I've seen what's coming, and it's largely more of that (eg. the Euler IS Jacket and Coat). 2. I'm not sure in what sense Veilance could be considered a trailblazer currently... but it's a bit hard to say when the last time was that you could have described the brand that way. Maybe very early on... But from a technical perspective, Arc reserves its most "cutting edge" stuff for mainline (especially, for some reason, Ascent and Whiteline); much of Veilance still uses old three-layer Gore-Tex ("trico" backer) for its shells—one does wonder why an additional thousand dollars doesn't buy you a Gore Pro shell. The really extreme weirdness probably peaked under Conroy—remember the Scend Jacket? Some of those experiments were terrible flops, however much one might admire the willingness to go there. 3. However tempting it may be to read into a sans serif typeface, it's ultimately just a rebrand, and at most a symptom of something deeper that's going on. It's hardly an indication that Veilance is more fashion-pwned than before—how do you even conclude that, from a logo change? Furthermore, I can point to plenty of times when Veilance drew from contemporary fashion trends—the rapid adoption and abandonment of various shawl collars when those were at their peak half a decade ago comes to mind. 4. Finally, I thought one of the major selling points for Veilance was the lack of branding. I really don't care what the brand's logo is (and, by the way, this season's products still use the old logo, typeface, etc.). I appreciate that most people won't know what I'm wearing. If it were up to me, the website would look like the Ulm School magazine.

    Got some baby-fades coming through on these overdyed 634-Ns Also, the pocket backs are starting to go after about one month of wear. I knew I'd be burning through them quite fast, but didn't expect it to happen that fast.

    Hey Karl! Amazing jeans! I will surely join another contest but after many years of wearing almost tcb only I may want to try something different this time.

    I kind of see a molehill here. I'd just take them to any tailor shop and replace the button. Or DIY. Anyway, you got them on deep discount, right? So paying $10-15 for the fix is no biggie. I'd be too impatient to wear them to ship off somewhere.

    So as the owner of Big Trouble I'd like to address some of the issues from @428CJ "You should not be paying to ship them back...and if they don't have the same size to replace them with, then they should just give you a refund. If you choose to repair them, then they should cover repair costs. That, or they can do the work of arranging the delivery of a repair part for you...if they are an authorized retailer." Levis Australia covers the return cost of faulty items but only in Aus. Unfortunately, they don't cover intl orders. We did offer the customer a replacement pair or a refund. Yes, we are an authorized Levis LVC retailer. "I don't imagine the retailer can "fix" the problem with the jeans themselves. But they can facilitate refunds, exchanges, and contact with the Levi's company, if necessary. Retailers are the point of contact with Levi's regarding quality problems on brand new jeans." That's exactly what we did. We have arranged an exchange or refund to be processed. For the issue to be resolved the jeans need to be returned to Levis Aus. As they won't give a replacement or refund if they don't have the original jeans back to access. "FWIW, both tines on the tack are still intact. If, for some reason, you won't force the retailer to handle the situation, then I would simply try straightening the tines, purchasing the necessary tack button installation tools, and restoring the button yourself." There is no need to force us to handle the situation. We are have already arranged for the situation to be resolved in a prompt and timely manner. "I would like to know what retailer has stated that the way you fix this issue is to return the jeans at your own expense, then have the replacement pair shipped to you at your own expense...so we can all avoid giving them our money." The name of our shop is Big Trouble Store. We are based in Sydney Australia. I'm sorry that you feel like you would not shop with us. A large part of your issue here seems to be the return shipping costs. As mentioned with domestic orders Levis Aus would have covered the costs. However, with Intl orders, they do not. As a small independent retailer. We simply cannot cover the return shipping both ways on a pair of Levis that we sold on sale that were close to our cost price.

    It's hilarious to me that people are freaking out over a website logo change. The old logo (which included "Arc'teryx") does look old, bordering on "dad" aesthetics. They need to further differentiate from mainline, especially 24. Yes, of course I miss the days of Conroy et al and "experimental" Veilance, but in case you haven't seen FW19, let me tell you: those days are over. Oh my god dude, either buy it or don't. This is some Princess and the Pea shit. The idea that you're going to try to sell the liner of the Patrol is hilarious, especially considering there is a jacket coming this fall that is basically a standalone Patrol liner (the Conduit AR).
