  2. Your biggest issue with techwear is ?

    Putting on my sequents and walking into the dead silence of the law library like swish swish Swish SWISH SWISH
  3. The ACRONYM Community Sales Thread

    Well I just got my first (sorta) real law job, and you know there's only one way to celebrate, so: Wtb: nothing for the moment

    @CARLOOA not sure if I'm just unlucky, or a particularly aggressive walker, or maybe it's my big booty. I spend most of my time sitting in the library, so I'm not doing anything too extreme. Though I do think the durability has gotten a bit better in later seasons. For whatever reason I've never had any issues with my apparat shorts either. (And, at the end of the day, everything that's failed has been replaced - so I can't really complain)

    Just got my first pair of chinese-made apparats, and the initial impression is... not good. They feel noticeably cheaper, the fabric is unpleasantly rough and the zippers on the cargo pockets are extremely difficult to open and close. Who knows, maybe they will last longer, but not off to a great start. Slightly less irritated edit: above concerns aside, construction seems fine. I don't think I've ever had a pair of apparats last longer than 6 months, so I can't pretend this is a new issue. If these don't fall apart I'll consider them an improvement.

    I have what I believe is an old style Veilance Operand shirt for sale in M. Bought it from grailed but its a bit too small for me. Looking to get $100 + $10 for shipping to conus (will use ups) + paypal 4% = $114.40 grailed link here:https://www.grailed.com/listings/4328078-Arc-Teryx-Veilance-Arcteryx-Veilance-Button-Up-Shirt Sorry the pics are so bad, they were taken by the original seller - lmk if you are interested and I can take better ones. (also, if you know the model lmk)
  7. Tech Fabric Care

    For those dealing with wear on epic or stotz garments, I would suggest tenacious tape by gear aid. My J46s was starting to develop some holes, and I am really pleased with the patching I did with the tenacious tape. The black fabric tape has a nice matte finish that blends really well with the stotz. Seems pretty sturdy too.

  9. 116740 APPROVED SHOES

    Nice price on the bbs x salomon jungle boots over at MRQT. Would grab them, but I can't justify another pair of boots on my student loan budget.
  10. Acronym.

    sounds like fair use to me

    There's no way to reverse it, but you can take advantage of Arcteryx's generous warranty. I basically only wear apparats (both shorts and pants) and when they start to wear out I send them back. So far I think I've gotten at least three or four pairs replaced over the years with no issues. Also helps to hang dry them rather than using a dryer. edit: this should work just as well with pants you bought used - I've never been asked to show a receipt or anything. Albeit for that pair there is a chance they will say that they reached the end of their "natural life" due to the uniform wear and apparent age, but it wouldn't hurt to try.
  12. Acronym.

    I'm taking trademarks this semester and on a lark I looked up Acronym on the US trademark register. Apparently someone has registered both "Acronym" and "Acronym Shadow" as marks for alcoholic beverages. So, uh, who knows where to find tech ninja beer?
  13. arcteryx veilance

    Welp. Finally found a blazer lt for a nice sale price and it looks like usps has lost the parcel (been sitting at "accepted" for 10 days). Anyone ever had this happen and end up getting their stuff? I need hope.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see them restructure their business model again and start working with retailers. I'm not sure how I feel about them coming back, aside from the wonky design issues they did some interesting stuff for a while, but it was getting really bland the few seasons before they went dark.
