    I was only responding to a post from drgitlin that made clear that: He is a progressive and Everyone that doesn't agree with his progressive worldview is an idiot racist nazi scum Frankly, you can have a discussion about the manufacturing of garments without this crap. I really don't think loudly proclaiming you're part of the #resistance (or that you're all about MAGA) is going to bring any benefits to this conversation, it's just obnoxious.

    About you FOH with your virtue signalling. There's a reason SuFu is a politics free space and it's worked pretty well so far.

    Fakcronym making tommow comes today

    the jacket is 399GBP, new with tag and the seller has multiple sizes. the listing is SCREAMING fake. anyone who is stupid enough to purchase that jacket thinking it's real frankly deserves to be separated from their money. While I definitely don't condone fakes, it's one thing to try to pass some fake as the real thing (including selling at ACR price), it's another when it's painfully obvious you're not getting the real thing.

    Also have one in peat from FW17, definitely one of my favorite sweater. The merino / nylon blend is very durable, I've used mine quite a bit, gone hiking quite a few times with backpack and stuff and there's zero pilling. It's really warm though and depending on your personal preference, it might be a bit much to wear indoor in place where the temperature is on the high side (although this season's version seemed much thiner when I handled it in store, but I didn't wear to compare so others might opine).

    I really like what civilized puts out, but the clothes are really only designed for short dudes. I'm 183cm / 6' and easily fit a size 3, sometimes even a 2, but most of the tops look cropped on me and the pants inseam is always way too short so I have never been able to get anything.
  7. Thanks, but was thinking of something more along those lines (although I don't know that I need to get something so well made)
  8. Any recommendations for a lightweight reusable shopping bag? Ideally something that's foldable as I tend not to carry a bag around. It's time I stop paying for bags every time I shop for groceries

    If you pass through Rome, there's an outlet by the airport and they had quite a bit of stuff so def worth a visit.

    I was in Italy exactly a year ago and they already had the full collection in store even though it wasn't online yet.

    As bouncingsould said, warmth is very personal and although I tend to run cold, my experience is similar in that I don't think I really need more than a t-shirt underneath unless the weather is the mid/low 20s. Even with the jacket unzipped, it gets too hot in the high 30s / low 40s. If I go indoor / take the subway, I have no more than 10-15 min before I start to seriously sweat. I live in Canada and the comfort level when it's 20 below is absolutely amazing though. Anyway, all of that to say that the Monitor Down is an awesome cold weather jacket that can definitely fill a space in your winter outerwear rotation, but I am not sure that it's the best everyday jacket.

    It depend how much your layer and how active you are, but it's a very, very warm coat. Personally, I think it would be a bit overkill for DC weather and I would suggest you get the regular Monitor and perhaps a down vest / coat to wear under when it's really cold as I don't think you would need the down every day.

    It makes me want to scream every time I read someone rehashing the stupid, economic illiterate BS that paying a living wage is responsible for the 2x+ price hikes seen in the last 2 years (or ACR price in general). Voronoi or Apparat are very similar construction wise (I assume the input and labor requirement are similar to a P10s), yet they sell for 35-40% of the the newly released p10s.

    I think the issue is that I don't think the market can bear those prices over the long-term. Maintaining this kind of brand desirability over the medium / long-term is extremely hard and you can only manage it by insuring you maintain a large number of brand supporters. I think the issue with the recent price hikes is that no one in their right mind can pay 1,200 EUR for pants so pieces tend to be bought more and more by rich assholes with fuck-you money who are buying it cause it's the cool thing of the moment and aren't likely to stay invested in the brand long-term. . I think this is going to have an impact of the image of the brand. Up until about 1-2 years ago, whenever I saw someone in ACR (which didn't happen often), they always seemed to dressed so well and be people I could hang out with, but nowadays, it seems ACR has become one of key element of the princeling fucbois uniform along with Off-White and Vetements and I cringe most of the time I see people wearing it (I also live in fucbois central so they are very visible). These people have no taste and are only buying what's cool to show off and as they move on from streetwear, I am not sure you will see a new generation emerge willing to buy ACR. As a result, the coolness factor of the brand has gone down quite a bit for me and there are alternatives.

    I got some p10S from the SS16 drop, just checked the receipt and they were 485 EUR. Now at ~1,200 EUR, it's an almost 3x markup over just 2 years. Are you fucking kidding me!!! Pricing is so out of sync with value, I just cannot even remotely justify looking at ACR now. Goodbye, it's been fun while it lasted, but there's just no way...
