  1. ^ They have removable insoles. Have been popping them out at night, and so far, to my amazement, no stink. Have been wiping the salt off them with paper towels and plain water. A coat of Simoniz, and they'd look new. (They're mostly plastic.)
  2. Hard to say, because I have circulation issues in my feet due to old frostbite issues. My feet are always sweaty blocks of ice under 20°C. But in these things, marching around in heavy rain and through light snowfall and slush puddles, my socks haven't gotten wetter than usual. At all. That's my yardstick.
  3. ^ Oui.
  4. I've been living in these since the snow started flying. Arcteryx Acrux SL GORE-Tex. Very good adhesion on everything but wet polished marble.
  5. I've got P9-CH in petrol.
  6. J32 or J47 over Icebreaker merino zipfront hoodie + Icebreaker merino longsleeve shirt + Patagonia longsleeve medium-weight thermal undershirt, with a cashmere neck-gaiter, is my default pit-of-winter upper body dress code. Not quite enough for standing at a bus stop in -10°C in a high wind for half a hour, but it's the tits for pounding winter sidewalks all day, down to about -20°C. Best part is, when I pop into a store or the subway, I don't turn into a ball of sweat. Subsitute Nike Tech Fleece zipfront hoodie (definite Errolson DNA or riffage in the hood & pocket design) over just the undershirt, with a polar fleece neck-gaiter, when it's at or above freezing point.
  7. "Mommy, look! Ninjas!!" "Now, don't stare, Fabian OH MY GOD!! They've got purses *under* their coats!!"
  8. PM. I can send pictures of the salt cod, if you like.
  9. WTB: P9, black, medium, any cloth. Payment via PayPal, wire, krugerrands, EMT, kegs of navy rum, bales of salt cod.
  10. I'd be very surprised if we saw it resurface entirely under the house's flag. Strong gut feeling that doing womenswear properly requires disproportionate time & effort for the potential return, for a company of Acronym's size & present market-focus. I'd be far less surprised to see a one-time collab with an established women's haberdashery, fringe or cutting-edge mainstream. (Mother of London, in my dreams.)
  11. If I had a full-length mirror, I'd prove you wrong.
  12. I've had either fabulous or disappointing experiences with them, mailorder and bricks-and-mortar. The Edmonton staff seemed to lack imagination. The Toronto crowd were the kind that run into the street and hail you a cab as you leave.
  13. Thank you very much for the succinct, useful intel.
  14. Anyone own/owned both P9 and P14 in the same size? How do they compare, cut-wise?
  15. The H4-AK is a hat. (Woolly 'at. Watch cap. Tuque.) The NG5s are neck-gaiters of similar style but very different cloths. I already have four Acronym neck-gaiters in cashmere and polyester fleece, but was intrigued enough by this season's new cloth options that I had to get one of each, just to see.
