    the problem is they're not coming from some bootleg factory. it's the contracted factory themselves getting some on the side. i reckon it's just the price of admission when having your stuff made in china.

    yeah ever since some veilance production moved to china they've been having a field day over there. grailed is loaded with fake veilance.

    yeah back in the day the acg aesthetic was deliberately garish branding. then the first couple of seasons erlsn turned that into weird big but subdued military-ish markings which was interesting, but now we're apparently back to garish.

    previous collection wasn't for me but it was an interesting divergence from the acrnm aesthetic. this just looks like some of those asian knockoffs with too many zippers.

    dani is making light of the pc crowd getting their panties in a bunch over major being caucasian. it was a big deal in some circles when the movie came out. also something something orientalism something appropriation something. i met a guy doing research for the gits movie when on a trip in hiroshima. we went to the mazda factory together. cool dude, polish i think.

    i don't understand the need for such a transparent argument in the first place. "make hay while the sun shines" would work for me.

    let's put it like this: the most expensive pant the tilak brand puts out is a €400 gore-tex pant. The average tilak pant is 150ish. Whatever it is, it's definitely not labor cost making the acr pants four to ten times as expensive.

    whenever i look at my trusty old SS-j2 i feel like acrnm is in that place already and i feel kinda sad.

    if you think this is about fair wages only you're delusional. erlsn is essentially the new rick. he'd be crazy not to make bank off of this hype.

    both terratex models are stupid comfortable, great looking and not restrictive at all. the apparats and cotton voronois less so, but i don't think they're more restrictive than similarily sized pants in non-stretch cotton blends. you're not getting acr levels of range of motion out of something without acr levels of bagginess and articulation.

    somehow ended up browsing back to 2012 in this thread. suprised how much things have changed for techwear. fun to see the musings on the increased appeal of acr an av while not knowing what's coming down the road. lots of good discussion from members i completely forgot about. definitelty another era altogether.

    conroy and stephen are in there too. 2010-2012 was a magical period in time for acr and av. seeing av drop @290sqm and being blown away by the stealth shirt's pocket config. being able to buy acr at concrete amsterdam. good times.

    between the convex lt and voronoi lt i prefer the voronoi because it is a much more distinctive design and the fit is perfect for me. however, i do really appreciate the convex for it's brutal minimalism and clean drape. that said, compared to the canada made nylon voronois i own i don't think the convex warrants a 350 price tag. it's very obviously a MUCH simpler pant to produce, it doesn't have the circular tape patches on stress points that the voronois have, overall the taping looks much less nice and despite all that it's still made in china. i wouldn't pay retail for it again.

    loved to follow your process every step of the way, dude. definitely keep us posted on your future plans! that schoeller wool jacket is just unf. like i said on insta, the textile perfectly highlights how cool the patterning is. i would love to see your take on a leather jacket!

    i see a dystopian hooligan wearing tapered schoeller pants that have detachable pouches on the sides. let's not kid ourselves and pretend they're not trying to be a more affordable acr. that said if acr is the end-all of what goes for techwear these days it's inevitable that some of the stuff they do becomes less of an acr trademark and more of a genre trope.
