  1. Acronym.

    FWIW at 5'7" I think I could have sized down to a small and still had the knee articulation work fine, in a M i have to hoist them up but then we knew it was a higher-waisted pattern than most people are used to these days. I find the raid pockets most useful for keys. They also fit a pack of cigarettes, should one smoke. Love both of my pairs, wish I also had the stotz in black.

    Mionn IS and Graph sweater arrived (Nordstrom Rack sale ftw). Reckon I could have gotten away with a small in the latter. Mionn should be an excellent underjacket for the winter.

    Maharishi has been doing this shit since the mid-1990s.

    I think at that Berlin event they made a point of saying that wearing a bag with it would cause a lot of wear, so you are right.

    Yup, I noticed that on Monday. next time I wear it in the rain will have to remember to do that. It does look so pretty when it’s beaded though.

    Pleather, maybe. Leather? No chance.

    I imagine that most people who bought that J62 haven't had a chance to really wear it yet. It's been such a hot summer yesterday was the first day I could leave the house wearing it (and that was at 4:30am).

    I am thinking about letting go of my GT-J29A (medium, bag/sheets/etc but not perfect, biggest issue is some delamination between two layers of the gore on the back of the collar) and J44-GT (the first paclite one with the silver zipper, also medium, bags/sheets/etc). Would also consider a trade for a medium J16+some cash.

    The main thing to size for with some of the more recent trouser patterns is the knee articulation. P17s work fine on the hip but P24As are verging on proper old man belt line status.

    E4J-TS is a lot more grey man than the 64. There’s no reason anyone else would ever know it’s covered in molle webbing when you’re wearing it.

    They weren't the only local retailer. Andreas Murkudis also stocked ACR, although @henrisan says they also got dropped?

    Really? How bizarre, I thought they were the same as the P17s but with those leg cuffs sewed on to the bottoms.

    Buy a belt.

    It's a little fucked up for a store like 18Montrose to state that they'll declare values for international shipping so you have to pay import duties, but still charge you VAT. You expect me to give the UK government £215, and then pay USG another $525? AYFKM?

    Much as I like the J16, $1750 for a goretex jacket is outrageous. And I say that as someone with a closet full of outrageously expensive goretex jackets.
