  2. I've been getting the feeling that SISP (and Stone Island in general) has been on a downwards spiral lately. Last fall was surprisingly good, sporting a cohesive collection for once, but when I went down to my local stockist there wasn't a single piece that grabbed my attention. Materials didn't feel particularly high quality and with all of the modularity gone the detailing was pretty much non-existent.

     

    It might be possible that SI/Errolson has decided to change to focus of SISP to carter to another crowd but I feel like the new ACG is much more similar to what SISP used to be for me than the SISP we've been seeing the the last couple of collections has been. 

     

    Anyone agree with me on this or is it just me?

     

    agreed with this. the items I've tried from the past seasons have been mostly underwhelming.

     

    I tried on this Silon coat from the current season and it felt like shit, the material is flimsy and cheap feeling.


  3.  

     

    Haven't gotten my collar bone done yet but heard that hurts a bit, getting a traditional belt type band there in black and grey and my stomach will probably hurt a lot. 

     

    for me right next to the collarbone was the worst I've had, not that I'd have anything extreme though (aside from chest; arms, forearms, upper back). lower on the chest was ok, but the higher it got, the more I could feel it in my neck and bones, and that was super uncomfortable.


  4. That ACRxPool parka was a heartstopper

    Lest we forget ( it is remembrance Sunday here in the UK after all )

     

    this brought a question to my mind, can anyone think of a similar similarly cut jacket (with regular sleeves)? looking for a short parka like that, preferably a similar material (less synthetic feeling).


  5. Haven's cs is pretty shitty. I'll only shop there if I can't anywhere else.

     

    Yep. tried buying from Haven once, they asked for a copy of my credit card when paying with paypal (wtf?) and were dicks.


  6. I had the original rokvi and no such issues, I typically have problems with tight sleeves / upper torso on some jackets, but this fitted fairly roomy at least in size L. Maybe they changed something or this is a bigger issue in smaller sizes?


  7.  

    Did you check out the new season mover.se loden pants? Waterproof wool face fabric, wool lining (removable suspenders). Not sure if slim enough though...

     

     

     

    these would probably do the trick, but the boot cut really kills the look, thats what I don't like about my current ones either. same problem with most ski/snowboard pants, they are intended to fit over the boots but I don't need that..


  8. Still looking for some good looking snow-proof pants. lined or a shell, doesn't matter as I can layer underneath.

     

     

     

    ideally, both for "basic" outdoor use in the fall (going to the park with my kids when its wet etc) as well as proper winter use (literally sitting in snow etc). For the latter they'd need to be totally waterproof of course.

     

    For years I've used a pair of ski/snowboard pants which are a shell, so I can use them in the fall and in the winter I wear various layers underneath. But the cut is pretty awful, they're too baggy like most similar ones are. I'm wondering if I could find something a bit more sleek but with similar technical features.


  9. What do you plan on using them for? 

     

    Isaora utility pants with similar composition got me through walking around a hokkaido winter. I wore long johns under, and slim sweats for really cold days. They got a little wet but never soaked in snowfall thought they worked pretty well without going into completely outdoor/technical gear.

  10. what are some good, slim-ish water and snowproof pants? not baggy but not regular pant cut either (ie not acronym or veilance). I like the cut on these but I don't think they are proper waterproof.

     

    preferably black or some non-color (grey, olive), stealthy looking.


  11. NEW: Acronym x Nemen object dyed 3L shell, size XL

     

    Really awesome jacket from the collaboration collection between Nemen and ACR. Color "olive". The object dyeing adds a beautiful depth to the color and texture.
