  1. Bags, backpacks, duffles, messenger, slings, etc.

    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)

    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?

    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.

    There's a Black / L P23-S back up on the mothersite. (Couldn't get the pants to work on me)
  7. 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.

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

    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.

    So many details to marvel at. So little pieces I can 'justify'. I can't get past the velcro shoulder patches on the J16, but am mesmerized by the two shoulder sleeves, the 'hidden' lower pockets and the storm flap retainer button. Could marvel at that high-res image of the x-back pattern all day. What a pity Tilak stopped doing it. A two-way zippered liner with detachable sleeves! But at the cost of looking like a military contractor/member of a paramilitary force? This piece is something I can only appreciate in theory, since I don't fish. I can see past the look of the zipper on the RAF P26 (and besides what danii mentioned, this could also be comfortable in urinal situations) but those bottom zippers, they seem to move the pant into that tracksuit territory and stack at the bottom. The pocket zippers I appreciate and think they shouldn't be a problem (at least they aren't on that SISP trainer pant from this summer; only worn in summer, mind you). The continued samurai armour silhouette thing I see on the P23A (and the pockets creating it) is just crazy. But how practical are they on the pants – that are already quite wide and now made from 'elastic material' – once they are filled and you're walking? Talking of that silver zipper obsession; I would jump on that new J61 if it had a black zipper and on that black stotz J56 if I didn't already own the GT version. Maybe one day we'll get a real collared vest with those J58 pockets.
  12. Appreciate the info & presentation. Nice choice of scissors.

    Just wanted to say thanks to this thread. You guys alerted me to the restock, when I logged on somewhat randomly, drink in hand, at the end of a day in Berlin of all places. Yes, some stuff sold out while I was spazzing around with the password and showing images of old stuff to my girlfriend, but I managed to grab a J-40S in black/L and my girlfriend is rather happy with her new SS-JF1B. Much appreciated. And talking of that restock; anyone know how that came about? — And speaking of smaller sizes. If S is the size you're after and you're looking for some recent stuff, I'd ping Andreas Murkudis in Berlin. I saw a 46U (i think), 56, 58 & a 61 hanging there.

    Maybe because he wrote "(...) the pure pleasure of owning." In uppercase.

    Is this peak cobra buckle (yet)? Next stop will be all about those interesting new products using these fascinating new magnetic closure solutions...
