    Just got the F1-T-C in... and I’m pretty underwhelmed. I didn’t have high expectations to begin with and I actually like the shape and fit more than I thought. But a few notes. weight: 53g with clip-on(15g) not ideal, but position of the weight combined with the straight shape of the temple does mean I couldn’t lean forward more than 45* without then slipping. That and the fact that my mykita mylon Iota are 25g made the weight very noticeable. Clip: I’m sure I’d get use to it, but magnetic definitely would have been the way to go, there’s too much space in between the frame and the clip. There not cumbersome, but I’d need to see an Acronymjitsu way on video to not seem like an 70yr old man putting some shades on my readers finish: this is what I first noticed, the foggyness of the titanium. doesn’t seem like it was polished or not assembled in a sterile environment. Obviously only an issue with the clear pair. I probably won’t keep them, even if i did, not sure how often I’d use them anyway.

    @meccaNIZM I agree with the majority of your assessment. They do feel very front heavy, and I think they would’ve benefited more from wearing directly on the nose bridge as opposed to the pads. That would’ve meant a little redesign I think, but to go with such a heavy forward leaning frame and such light temples- the nose pads just don’t feel that great to me. It feels like they’re balancing as opposed to resting on the bridge of my nose. That’s probably partially due to the dimensions of my skull overall to a degree I’m sure, but more so the design. Even having traditional temples would help with this. I grew up wearing eyeglasses from a very young age and have owned quite a few pairs of higher end shades if that gives any clarity. On a completely other note- the styling is just a bit too exaggerated for my taste in the all black frames I purchased. It’s nerd-core on steroids. I’m sure some can and will pull it off but it just doesn’t suit my facial structure. I have a strong/heavy brow, dark/sunken eyes, dark/coarse hair and they just add too much weight overall. I’ve worn strong blocky frames before, but these just feel too much with the frame weight and the lenses size. The clip ons feel well made, but a bit fiddly and I can see it being a bit easy to scratch the frames with repeated use simply by handling the frames while donning and doffing. They actually almost slipped off the frames while I was putting them back in the protective plastic wrap. And yes- there is a noticeable gap while wearing if a strongish light source hits them at an angle. I can say with a good amount of surety that this is my least favorite ACR item that I’ve had the opportunity to handle up close. Nothing feels very Acronym about it to me. There’s no hidden awesomeness, no new take on an old norm, no subtle functionality, no tiny detail that is commonly overlooked, no build quality that feels like it’s been considered and tested. I’ve owned other ACR pieces that didn’t work for my personal aesthetics, but I’ve ALWAYS appreciated the overall design and form/function. These are literally just another pair of expensive sunglasses. YMMV?

    I've just published an article about Kojima and the TCB workshop on a friend blog. I'm showing a little tour around Kojima and the TCB factory and reviewing a TCB '50s slim after 1 year and a half of wear. It was originally published in french but made the decision to also write it in English. The article is made for French people who are just discovering about raw denim and haven't worn or even don't know what an unsanforized denim yet. I'm not going deep in the details and method but I think it's nonetheless interesting. Read it here And of course, here is the pair of jeans I've been wearing for more than a year now with multiple machines washes

    Finally got around to washing them before my Japan trip. Sadly they're in worse shape than I was expecting so when I get back, I'll wash again and take to SE for repairs. I think this is the 9th wash and maybe around 2ish years? I lost count sadly Pre-wash Post-wash

    Just through dyeing and appearing in the outside world any day now, type 933 Zoetrope Coats are an experiment in pleating from the neck, starting from the look of military jackets with chest darts into the collar, working through more abstract ideas of snapshots of movements fanned out across a piece of fabric, and Edweard Muybridge's use of the zoetrope technique of animation (zoopraxiscopy!) Here's what it actually looks like...: Along with various iterations of the season's fabrics and dyes (including the really lovely English-Woven double indigo cotton Taunton above), I've got a single piece made in ecru cotton Taunton (a simple 11oz cloth, this one's broken twill) which was put into rinse with a batch of double indigo garments. It's come out pale blue, but rather than being actively dyed it's coloured entirely from dye lost by other pieces of clothing. Here are some pictures: because the big pleat in each side pulls the grain all over the place it's going to be really interesting seeing how these wear in.

    WITHDRAWN. Leaving post up for price reference purposes MINTY FRESH pair of F1-T-A The fit isn’t to my liking on these so I’m passing them along at cost. $711 PayPal F/F. If you want invoiced there’ll be an up charge as per usual. First class shipping via USPS is free in the continental U.S., if you’re looking for priority that’s another $10. Everybody else in the world needs to pony up. If these don’t find another home in the next 48 hours or so, I’m sending them back whence they came. No trades no offers. Just looking to pass these along to someone if they’re interested.

    Component OS thoughts- So far this is my favorite Veilance release of the season. Materials- Made of of the nyco (50 cotton 50 nylon) blend similar to the voronoi pants, the Comp OS sits structured while not feeling too constricting. It would be hard to talk about the Comp OS without lobbying some comparisons to the Field OS, the 100% poly composition of the Field felt more substantial for weather protection however the more matte finish of the Component pairs better with less glossy fabrics and adds a nice contrast with terratex pants. Pockets- the main draw of the Component OS is the storage space and organizational structure of the front pockets. The internal elastic (see Mionn internal organizer or Align mx pockets) is able to hold my phone and wallet comfortably with minimal (if any) bulk. the zipper access also feels smooth and functional. I have had an easier time with the access for these pockets than with the Field and find them more utilitarian despite seemingly having less volume if the 4 fields pockets were added up. Sizing- I am 6'3" and \~180lbs (190.5cm and 82kg) wearing a size large. I am a bit in-between large and XL for sizing and the shoulders on this are just the slightest bit snug. However I only plan to wear Frame tees under it so I'm not too concerned. For additional reference i take a large in the Field OS, Monitor Down, and Opperand while taking an XL in the Mionn, Graph sweater and frame tees.
