    Anyone know when the phone pockets got wider? I know FW1718 got them, but did SS16 too?

    Looping the straps back through the buckle keeps them tight enough for it not to be an issue. Minor adjustments required throughout the day but I'm never worried my pants are gonna fall down. You can also just tie them and it works great. Stotz will be heavier though so we'll see if there's a difference.

    Sometimes yes. The 24a-s did a better job than the 24a-ds with larger/heavier items. But I still have my DS pair, and sold the S so that should tell you enough about which I prefer. And it's rare I'm carrying something heavy long enough for it to be an issue, since I would have just brought a bag if it was for an extended time. The 23a has smaller cargo pockets so it's less of an issue. If you load up both cargoes on one side and have your phone in the phone pocket on that side too, then maybe you would get some bouncing/awkwardness.

    Is this the PL with the microfiber outer? Or a different variant?

    If it's this, then I am fine with it. Maybe with the Nike exposure, they finally have enough demand for their product to charge the prices they always wanted to support the people making it. Maybe prior seasons were sold more cheaply than they would have preferred to help build the brand and put them in this position. Maybe the increase in price is what was needed to get an actual customer service team, and fulfillment team that could ship web orders faster than two-three weeks after payment. The pricing out of resellers might just be a fortunate side effect. I doubt anyone here has seen their books or sat in their strategy/planning meetings, so it's really all speculation, myself included. I would take E's word over anyone else's. That said, I never saw this tweet LOL so who knows. Either way, it will be my rationale whenever I buy - 50% for the product, 50% to the good people of the Czech Republic. As for older customers being priced out, it is unfortunate. But older customers have probably been following E over the years through interviews/articles/social media and know he has always prioritized social/corporate responsibility.

    Any experience with the updated Apparat (50/50)? i'm guessing it is also a little more substantial/heavy than the Convex LT?

    They have used different iterations over the years, and I think the answer is "it varies." My DS-LA3 pills near the rear bottom hem, and is more like loose threads than fuzz balls. My DS-HD2 also had minor pilling under the armpits and at the sleeve hems, but it looked more like lint than threads. Both of these were easily removed with a pretty cheap depiller, and I did not notice any negative impacts to durability/function. However, while the HD2 showed no visible signs I had removed some pilling, my LA3 has some tell tale signs. My DS-KA3, which I think was the same iteration as the LA3, doesn't have any pilling, though I have worn it less frequently. I wore my S8-DS and S15-DS even less frequently, and obviously also did not have any pilling (these two shirts did seem to have the thinnest version of DS). My LA6-DS, P23A-DS, and P24A-DS have been worn extensively, but have not shown any signs of any pilling yet. When I had my P10TS-DS, I thought they were pretty similar if not the same version of DS as the 23 and 24 so I am a little surprised you're having an issue. The tighter cut of the P10s might be contributing, or you might just be wearing them more frequently/rigorously. Agreed on Outliers, I have some for office pants and it's definitely a tougher face fabric. But that comes with increased swishing while walking and as you mentioned, a more synthetic look and feel. TLDR: I would just take a depiller to them. Unless you're noticing a significant thinning of the fabric in the rear seat, I wouldn't worry about it.

    Thanks! Will try that tonight. Update: Worked like a charm. I was applying pressure up and it kind of just popped up into place. At first I thought I broke it, but now it secures like the rest of the buttons. Maybe they just missed this step in the factory? Either way, glad its fully functional now.

    Owners of Field Overshirts - do all of your cobrax buttons have the same amount of "snap" to them? My lowest button slides in, but doesn't have the same feel as the other buttons. Not a huge deal, but sometimes I can't tell if I actually buttoned it.
