  1. Can anyone give a comparison of Acronym to Tilak? In particular Tilak's Evolution jacket and Poutnik range, and in regards to material and fit differences. Pretty sure both Tilak's sage sweatshirt and evolution jacket were Errolson commissioned designs that later found their way into acronym collections (circa 2012, can't find model numbers rn), with some slight tweaking. Essentially, I want some insight into how large the gap between Tilak and Acronym is in terms of material quality/cut (not aesthetics and other less tangible aspects) for directly comparable products, since Acronym still (?) use the Tilak factory to make their stuff.
  2. Haven is the easiest place to cop from at Canadian retail, I just wait till they have free shipping because their international rates are painful. All my jackets and shirts I got on sale or ebay, so import tax never bothered me. In fact, everything that will attract the import tax tends to be items that I consider too warm for our winters, so I never looked into it. For sizing beforehand, I recommend using Mr Porter and then utilize their free returns (unless you're after vonorois, they are way cheaper after brexit oddly and almost at par with Canadian prices). It's not like we have a veilance store to try anything on.
  3. I have the Align in black. 1) Aesthetics and fit aside, choose the material based on what you'll need it for. Goretex pro is amazing but it doesn't pack as well as some other veilance fabrics, not the best option if you travel a lot and need space. Actuator's great in particular since its fully packable into its own internal pocket.I personally wear my align whenever I'm in Melbourne, but any of them would probably suffice if you just want to avoid getting wet. None of them will keep you warm by themselves, definitely layers needed. 2) There were a few more colours around, navy and a orange called 'dark flare' (decent pictures available from a Haven lookbook), as well as Mahogany. There's also a fleece lined version that was made briefly one season. 3) My align is the same but it doesn't really bother me. Goretex Pro is supposedly more noisy than others but I don't have a huge amount of experience to back that up.
  4. 20-25% the entire Veilance range at East Dane if anyone's interested Also free shipping at Haven right now, which makes them the cheapest for Voronois shipped internationally, decent size selection remaining too
  5. Samurai 710XX in size 32, 19oz from the 15th anniversary. $135 SOLD More pics here: https://www.grailed.com/listings/1950266-samurai-jeans-710xx
  6. From the ATO "A vendor registration model will be used and suppliers with an Australian turnover of $75,000 or more in a twelve month period will be required to register and charge GST." I very much doubt that any boutique or smaller shop selling Acronym will ever be affected by this law. And even if, that company needs to voluntarily start collecting GST, which is always unlikely to happen. Other than maybe END, who do a lot of business with us, this GST law probably won't mean anything for importing Acronym, so I wouldn't stress about buying after July. I haven't found any real way to avoid import tax for over $1000, other than asking the seller to mark down value, but that generally depends on having a pre-existing relationship (AKA you've spent a lot with them before). It never hurts to ask though.
  7. Brought from Rodeo Bros on Rakuten today and got an interesting message with my order. From what I understand, Iron Heart is implementing a new management policy and Rodeo (+ presumably other webstores) won't be selling any IH items through Rakuten after April. Might be worth putting orders in now if anyone wants those Japanese retail prices.
  8. Undercover 12AW Goretex Jacket (4) $450 SOLD White Mountaineering Wardrobe Wool Coach's Jacket (3/L) $160 SOLD
  9. Few items on 50% sale at 290sqm Istanbul. I picked up the cheaper items but there's still a Galvanic IS coat and Partition Coat in larger sizes available if anyone's interested in them.
  10. From Junya Watanabe's new season, 6 solar panels with an interior power-pack to charge your phone. Really interested if it would work well in real life or if it's just a gimmick, anyone have experience with a similar concept?
