    have a J1A-GT 2.2 brand new with everything in size L for trade if you have a Medium *edit* msg me if you’re interested to just buy it outright, I might sell anyway if I fail to get an M on the restock

    fucked up on my sizing thinking it would fit close to a J47, bought an L in the J1A-GT when i should've gone for an M... i mean it still fits but i guess i'll be looking for someone to trade me for a Medium zZzz

    not one to whine, but when everyone you know has gotten shipping notifications for that $2000 jacket you just bought and you haven't.... :-(

    much obviously fuzzier than real DS **edit** and yes i mean P24A-DS when you turn up the hem it resembles fleece (but a VERY mild version is that makes sense) stitching etc is actually DECENT, also no one will pay that close attention, i'd kick you in the eye if you came that close to my pants lol pockets on the inside have a much brighter sheen than real ACR, and the size tag comes off the pockets after a few washes how do i know all this? i bought a pair to bash around in on trips where i don't want to worry about my thousand dollar pants getting ruined, but still look steezy having both the real ones and the taobao ones i would say: 1. water resistance is similar 2. taobao "DS" is actually slightly more windproof 3. taobao "DS" is warmer (i personally prefer the real thing because i live in the tropics) 4. taobao "DS" is stretchier and a little more durable 5. the ammo pockets with the pop buttons are super high quality construction on the authentic pair, the fake ones feel like they may fall off after a few uses that said, a very decent pair of pants for 80 bucks is it worth spending about 80 bucks on a pair just to see the style? YMMV i suppose nothing beats wearing a real ACR

    there are really really good fake P24A-DS in the market. the only way you can tell visually is when they're rolled up, the fakes are fuzzy inside unlike the authentic ones. the cut and hardware, however, is a 100% match

    unfortunately i have quit smoking that said, a cigarette is the best fashion accessory, and the meme value of a tabi-gripped cigarette is pretty damned high

    used to really want a pair of the visvim sashiko folk and was actually actively shopping around for a pair until i saw that they finally made a flat soled version of the margiela tabis for men – i'm glad i held out

    thanks for the replies as for the post above about grangers 2 in 1, you have to tumble dry your jacket. if you're afraid of throwing it in a hot dryer, you can do what i do and give it a good once over with a hair dryer. you'll feel like a dumbass, but hey, no one's watching lol

    have a range of pants (stotz, dryskin, ch microtwill), and one blanket question for these materials... i like keeping my pants clean so i wash (!!!) them once every few months. DS seems to keep repellency fairly decently, but CH and S do not. is there a way of "reactivating" the water repellence of these materials? does DWR spray work on these fabrics the same way it works no goretex? so many questions, so little time actually spent walking in the rain in my expensive pants
