  1. There's always discussion about cheap cobra belts, just saw these on massdrop so figured it might interest some. at $42, it's a pretty good deal on an unrelated topic, I want to get a new pair of home chill-out / sweat pants (ie. something that I only wear at home or to walk the dog / go to the corner store). I have a pair of baggy RO pants I got at a sample sale that I love, but apparently I've worn them out and I really need a new pair... ACG tech fleece pants from this season sell for a huge discount on ebay, but I am a bit worried about how comfortable they look more like a normal pant (cut, lack of elastic waistband) than a sweat pant. What's the consensus on those? Are they comfortable enough? Should I just pay more and get last year's? Any other recommendation?
  2. I don't disagree with what you guys are saying, but I feel that the way Grailed works (or the way people are using it) is a huge part of the problem. Having sold on few things on there, the amount of low balling that goes on is beyond frustrating so I think it forces people to list thing much higher than they are expecting to sell at just to drive away the lowballers. We all know the average transaction is done at a significant discount to the listed price. Ultimately, a bit more transparency on actual transacted prices would be a really nice addition. I know it's harder to do for clothes than for sneakers, but I really like what StockX has done, ultimately it helps goods trade at their fundamental value.
  3. Lol seriously??? Grailed is the worst...
  4. I don't necessarily have a problem with Veilance products being made in China as long as quality is maintained, but I would expect prices to come back down to reflect the much lower labor costs. Prices have almost doubled over the past 4-5 years and I think people will have an issue paying $2,000 for a made in China jacket....
  5. I am somewhat of a similar size as you (maybe a tad smaller like 39-40 chest and 33-34 waist) and I take a 3 or 4 depending on the piece and fit. Sizing can be a bit odd, there can be quite a jump between size 3 and 4 (where a 3 would fit like a M and a 4 like a XL) and the pants will almost certainly be too short if you are above 5'9. In any case, quite a few stores in NYC carry it and pretty much all online retailers have measurements so you should be fine.
  6. The topic of belts seems to come up every couple months. While the look of cobra belt / buckle complement the p10 perfectly, they are not the most comfortable of belt as the buckle tend to dig into one's belly when sitting. I got a belt from @danii and I am a HUGE fan, the side tightening works perfectly and is so much more comfortable than a huge front buckle (plus I really like the look).
  7. There's a little bit more on the website. Those jeans just scream Eurotrash to me though...
  8. Been wanting this book for so long, thanks for the heads up. Given the ridiculous resale price on the first edition though, I am kind of thinking whether it would be worth it to buy a few extra copies, but then I would think the print run will be much larger than the first time around....
  9. Version 55.0.2883.87 m (which Chrome tells me is up to date). On Windows 7 Here's what I see
  10. On Chrome on a PC, every time I try to navigate to a new page in a thread, I get a "loading" pop up, but the new page never actually load. I can manage to get there by reloading the entire page (ie. pressing ctrl + R), but still a little annoying.
  11. Thanks, the CAD pricing is actually very good, C$240 for the cargo vs. US$220. Been wearing my ACG cargo for a month now and they have become my favorite pair of pants. They are cut so much better than the p10, particularly in the seat area where the p10 have way, way too much fabric and don't provide a very flattering fit.
  12. Thanks, I ordered Medium so really happy to hear!!! Can't wait to get them
  13. ACG is up at End Edti: Mr Porter has some stuff too
  14. what's the consensus on sizing, simliar to ACR (ie. you choose based on length, not waist size?). Judging by the pictures, the pants seem very short. I know models tend to be really tall, but the Nike sizing guide is useless so really hard to judge. I have been looking for slim-fit cargo for a bit and the ACG khaki cargo are pretty much what I'm looking for, except for the lack of belt loop (could do without the branding on the pocket too, but not a deal breaker). I'm sort of a 32ish waist so while I can fit into Acronym Medium pants, the length is a bit short (I'm 6') so I go with Large instead and use a belt. Anyway, given the lack of belt loop on these, trying to figure out whether I should bother getting a pair tomorrow and if so, what size so any advice appreciated
  15. These are pretty cool, and fully waterproofed
