  1. Acronym.

    They 3D printed a save icon? How odd.

    One thing to bear in mind with the P24As is that they're high-waisted, particularly compared to something like the P9 or P10. If you wear them on your hips, the articulation for the knees will be below your actual knees.

    Post your faded acronym ITT. Here are my black P9-Es:

    Probably cheaper to license your own Iron Dome system from Israel.
  5. Acronym.

    That’s totally worth an extra €500. Better hope my current pairs last forever too.

    I don't know if it's the phone camera or what, but this doesn't look good IMO. Sorry.

    I have been machine washing P9-S and P24A-S on delicate with an extra rinse with no issues. For several years in the case of the P9-Ss.

    Yes, that looks like the inner layer(s) of the fabric it's made from. If it bugs you that much, get a black sharpie and fix it.

    OK, completely absent the price I am still not a fan of them. The styling on the site makes them look like a utilikilt, and when I'm wearing shorts the last thing I want is a fabric as heavy as that, particularly in black; I'm wearing shorts because it's fucking hot out. At this point I feel like the brand has lost me, and you know what? That's fine. I need another jacket or pair of trousers like I need a hole in my head. It's like when your favorite DJ decides he's going to put away the decks and make records with guitars; good on him but I don't want to listen to it. the last thing the world needs is more needless consumption—hell, even Errolson shouts about that.

    You don't understand why some people would think a pair of €1500 shorts is taking the piss? Particularly when they're >30% more expensive than trousers made from the same stuff, but use less of it?

    Where she immediately did a great capsule collection for women. Including a cape, similar to the cape that people here obsess over. Makes you wonder who was coming up with the ideas we all loved from previous collections, no?
  12. Acronym.

    Or when Joanna left.
  13. Acronym.

    the joke is on whoever paid €1500 for a pair.
  14. Acronym.

    It looks like a fucking utilikilt.
  15. Acronym.

    So, not €1500 for shorts?
