  1. 30-day DIY Techwear Design Challenge

    This is indeed impressive, and inspiring! I'm thoroughly enjoying your documentation of the material, the process and the results here and over on imgur. Much appreciated.

    these are nice: SISP / END tempted to label them poor man's P26
  3. Acronym.

    Maybe the whole new manufacturing setup has something to do with it too? And did those claiming it was „the same J47A“ check its ‚seam construction‘? (I‘d probably charge more too if i had to sew the same pattern with thinner material ;-))

    Feel like the dead bird messenger bag post lacks the most interesting pics: side access main compartment zipper Don't quite see why they didn't use something more elaborated than those buckles. And then theres that "review" with more images
  5. 116740 APPROVED SHOES

    I've got mine from Storm and I'm not in one of those 3 countries. Maybe your destination is on this storm shipping destination list (faq)? Now also available at Brandblack. Seem true to size. Very roomy in the front (perfectly comfortable for people with wide feet!) and rather narrow in the heel. Grippy sole. Not all that thrilled about the lacing points; imho there should be be a 'hook(?)' where that strip bends, for better strapping down of the ankle. Perfectly weather resistant in rain and wet snow, out of the box. feel like they have a wider/rounder appearance irl at 43 than in the promotional imagery.

    Their Lima Jacket from 2 seasons ago, which seems to be back, is still on my mind.

    Contacted Spyder customer support via e-mail, since the wording on Bagjacks FB was a bit vague. Was told that the Bagjack Bags are only sold in Korea. Unfortunate.

    The inner security flap on the front pockets is awesome as well. Keeps your phone/change/keys from sliding out when you sit, to counter style/position of pockets and the light/soft fabric. (there seems to be some mystery about wether this is a “wide, drop crotch pant” or a “slim bit not too tight” pant if you read deacriptions across the vendors. Got my usual 50 in olive from SI and it was skin tight! The 52 in black was the wide drop crotch one but still not much wider than SI 50s usually are for me. (Misslabel or theres two versions about)
  9. Bags, backpacks, duffles, messenger, slings, etc.

    TAD Transport Cubes, Arcteryx Index line, Muji has some thin, cheap ones, Arket does too. Patagonia has the Black Hole Something line. And then there's all the cheap Tactical Supply Gear everywhere. There's one Tactical supplier that does the cubes that are depicted in your image, but they would then have a velcro patch on the back for use with the Khard.

    Anyone own or inspect a Bagjack Sniper Bag? Any opionions on it?
  11. Acronym.

    both as in holster & front pockets with zips, right? Good to know. i like dropping my phone/wallet into them on my Sage when commuting, but feel a bit uneasy since they're sans zipper and taking the sweater off becomes something you have to do rather consciously. Even though I'm of somewhat similar build/height I wear an XL LA5 (which makes it look less 'smart' but still not ridiculously loose), since it's got those tight armholes. I love it for the collar, zip & material combo but wouldn't mind a zippered pocket somewhere.
  12. Acronym.

    There's a Black / L P23-S back up on the mothersite. (Couldn't get the pants to work on me)
  13. WAYWT destroyed my cybernetic implants [2046]

    Given that he's wearing one of the argueably louder recent pants combined with the one shoe screaming hype collab I'd take this further and question if the original answer made any fucking sense at all. And I'll bite; how can you not "do Acronym justice" wearing Acronym head to toe and combining that fine 'introvert jacket' with those fine 'extrovert pants'? Are you saying he should have gone with a more contrasting or historically aware shoe choice? It's the smoking, isn't it? It has to be. Because smoking kills.
  14. Urban Techwear

    The brand is https://www.on-running.com. Think it's the Cloudflyer.
  15. Acronym.

    So there was this info going around (?) that there was less stock for this collection due to some changes in workplace law? What I never understood is if the department doing Acronym is exactly the same as the one doing the Tilak lines (EU/JPN/Military/Poutnik) or another department attached to that factory. (daniis post above answer this somewhat) But If there are less pieces of clothing in total, it would make sense that this would be one reason for the increased price. Also maybe my impression that pieces seem to be getting more complex construction wise plays into both as well. I wonder what they're going to do. Find a new factory in Europe? (is there one?) Keep raising prices while producing what is possible? Move production to Asia? I would feel a bit different about it all if they decided to stop producing in Europe. For a while at least, I guess... I have 'no problem' with raising prices to arrive at a returns level that compensates for years of hard work or to get to the level you feel your work and time is worth (plus funds for future plans). But I refuse to believe that price increases happen because a certain someone feels like people are gonna pay it anyway.
