    ^what did you do? There you go: My usual routine is to soak the jeans inside out in a bucket to make them more pliable abd then put them directly in the washing machine. My washing machine has a rinsing program so the jeans were rinsed with clear water to remove the starch and sizing agents. I left them in the spin cycle at 400 rpm to get the mostz moisture out of the fabric. Afterwards I hang them to dry. Here are the measurements so you can see how much they shrank (raw/onewash) Waist: 37.5" / 34" Front rise: 14" / 13" Back rise: 17.5" / 16.75" Hips: 22" / 21.25" Thigh: 13.75" / 12.9" Knee: 10.5" / 9.75" Leg opening: 9.4" / 9" Inseam: 36.25" / 33.75" And the fit pics after the soak/wash

    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?

    Hope everyone's enjoying the sunshine. Still not bright enough for me to photograph jeans without camera-shake, but still.... one more wash. Does anyone else find they keep losing coins now they have to keep everything in the back pockets?

    Shoot Buddy, I just left Thailand 2 days ago. Timing was off as I was there for the heat but work ended right when rainy season started. I love my 37’s for exactly that reason...lighter weight and loose fit allows for good air circulation. Plus I can cinch and not wear a belt. I like the 201’s for that reason as well. Plus there are so many sidewalk seamstresses to keep them alive ! EDIT: These are ‘33s and I need to unpack my ‘37s.

    Some prewash photos of the jeans and the wabash. Luckily the wabash is already washed, I've got the jeans in the washing machine now. I love the double stitching features around the front and back pockets, and how hairy the wabash fabric is. The only other one I have is from Mister Freedom and it's a lot more flat and traditional by comparison.

    Thanks very much for this. Yes, new 126 side-cinch Oxford trousers are now in stock. Here's how they work: I've been wearing a pair of these in indigo/indigo broken twill Taunton for about 6 months, and I'm really pleased with them. Here are some photos: Here they are new, in indigo/indigo Taunton (as above) and in the same fabric woven with ecru cotton yarn: Standard jeans have indeed been out of stock for a while, sorry about this. I'm expecting a full restock around the end of June, although if it's of interest I do have a pair of 136s in Unborn denim in a size 2, which are the same style as 132, just wider in the leg. Please feel free to email me if you have any questions.

    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.
