    I think 48 would be about right. The Laminar outerwear is cut ridiculously tight in the shoulder so most people have to size up because of that. I am a 48/50 but consistently wear M in veilance and ACR and my Laminar 3-1 parka is a 52. I could sorta fit in the 50, but the shoulders were super tight and I wouldn’t have been able to wear any substantial layer underneath. FYI I don’t really have broad shoulder so I think it’s an issue for everyone.

    It is by far my favourite jacket btw, really underrated IMO as you get the E’s design as well as Herno’s quality at a very attractive price point 

     

    I'm a true or slightly big 50 and just tried on a Laminar unlined blazer in 50 that wasn't particularly fitted. This is just based on one item though, but with the blazers I would consider going true to size.

    That's a shame, Boris needs to be taken to one side and gently talked to, still he's there making clothing and I'm here not, so at least he's doing his thing and I should sew my lips together!

    as far as I know he doesn't design any of the 11 line, which explains why it's so different from his main line...

    Any suggestions on a tech-ish blazer suitable for indoor use (not insulated)? In other words, looking mostly for the specific look rather than technical features, but figured I'd ask here any way.

    Something along the lines of Veilance, but their blazers are a bit too flimsy for my taste.

    The Alchemy equipment blazer looks nice but I'm not sure if its more for outdoor use

     

    still looking for suggestions


  4. looks ok but a bit too "soft" and drapy for my taste (plus I couldn't fit in that)

    Came across this by some Japanese brand called Teatora, looked cool but when I saw other photos it didn't look as nice.

    Yeah true. I somehow do not mind diesel, because I find the brand to be authentic and certainly has one of the strongest images out there. And also they develop stuff time to time (rest is just diesel logo on a slim t-shirt). Too bad profit and tasteless customers ruined it. In the end of the day, their customerbase is not different from (for example) Nike's.

    ???

    I mean, I don't care how anyone feels about the brand (mostly overdesigned mall-crap and knockoffs if you ask me), but to call it "authentic" seems incredibly far fetched.


  7. z5 and z3 compacts are still really good phones, not sure about x. sony still has the best build quality imo

     

    actually ended up getting the X. feels great compared to the compacts build-wise. Also happy with the closer-to-native Android after trying to use a Samsung.


  8. can't believe how hard it is to find a smaller high quality android phone. The Nexus 5 has been the perfect size for me and highly usable with one hand, can't say the same about any of the current 5.2"+ phones. The S7 feels like it weighs a ton compared to the N5 and is difficult to hold with one hand due to the shape and size.

     

    compact Sonys (X, Z5) feel like crappy plastic, the Samsung A3 is a good size and build feels nice but a bit underwhelming performance wise and not a fan of their UI and all. Had high hopes for the Pixel 5" but its the same size and similar shape as the Galaxy S7, same problems.


  9. Have you looked at Arc'teryx Veilance?

     

    Yea I have a Veilance hooded jacket, the primaloft version though which is extremely warm. Would be great to find one of the hooded shells in the green color, but I don't think they've made those for a couple of years at least. not a fan of their other colors really


  10. the other two are a bit too sporty, but Carinthia looks promising, a bit more military influenced. I'll have a closer look, thanks.

     

    more ideas of course welcome. Optimally, looking for something that is not too outdoor-sy looking but functional, if that makes sense. I would love for Acr to work for me, but it just doesn't...


  11. any ideas for a simple hooded jacket in non-black, preferably olive color or similar.

     

    basically something exactly like this (J1B-S) but not acronym, because the fit just doesn't work for me, too short x wide.

  12. All the looks or any particular subset you find controversial? The cape will always be divisive and that bib-hoodie is what it is but on balance I think the collection is on point. (p.s. the choice of models might not make it obvious but many of the looks are unisex/for women...)

     

    its the combinations that irk me, they look very thrown together and incoherent. for example in the first look, the fluffy looking shorts layered over pants look super weird. second look is very generic out, take out the vest and it kind of looks like a middle aged jogger. third one is ok, last one again the combo of the jacket, skirt/whatever and leggings looks awkward.
