    I agree. The pattern is deceptively complex and produces an interesting silhouette as a result. The knees to cuff are very interesting. I’m used to my P10’s ‘changing shape’ dependent on what angle they’re viewed from, but the 24A’s are very structurally dynamic and change your lower profile drastically depending on the POV.

    I’ll try to remember to dig mine out of storage and post a pic in the next couple days.

    No feedback, but I wish I had them prestos...

    Oh, sweetie! Did they finally ban you from that last sad little weeaboo neckbeard incel sweat corner over on the 4chans? Are they sick of your Shit posting too?

    I may have misread that quote multiple times now over the last couple years- which isn’t me saying that I’ve read it a bunch so I know better or whatever, but it seems more to me that it’s a case of damning fast fashion in the higher echelon of fashion. The higher echelon being what ACR is approaching and/or is at this later point. There’s enough recycling in the brand now that it really should diverge and start producing some of the base patterns en-masse. Do a buy in style production and give a decent amount of lead time on completion. Meanwhile... maintain the experimental aspect and do seasonal releases of funky newness. Personally, I’d be down for waiting for both a release of new shit, and occasionally signing up for another guaranteed pair of p10’s, a J1A, etc., and then waiting for the completion/shipment of.

    The proof is in the pudding as they used to say. ACR is falling prey/fomenting precisely what he’s pointing out in that quote.

    So much nope.

    30 fugly ass over-priced folders. Lot more where that came from. The maker has bad business practices too. If you have money to drop and want a proper weirdo style custom folder, that’s actually worth the cash I’d look at Gavko Knives.

    How’s that shitcoin startup coming along there cookiepuss?
  12. Acronym.

    Y’know, for a brand that prides itself on being future in thought and deed, they sure do run their business like a 1990’s dial up site...

    It came across in your previous post that they dont accept returns in general. Hence why I said it’s misleading. The majority of people are more aware of the mothersite I’d hazard to guess.
  14. Urban Techwear

    It’s misleading to state they have no returns as it only applies to the experimental pieces. Which are less than integral to their base brand. In fact they are very up front about the concept and design in my experiences reaching out to them multiple times in the past. For instance- fairly recently I was interested in their dyneema jeans and they were very forthright about how difficult it would be to alter them for a standard tailor. I wasn’t given any type of sales pitch or brush off. Their customer service has been both fastidious and welcoming. And I think you’re mistaking criticism for personal bias. Which is fine, but call it what it is. At least they’re not charging premiums for branded tees that have poetic descriptions attached to them to excuse the price hikes...

    I’m not sure why you’re calling out a brand named Outlier for doing things the way the deem fit for their brand? Who cares how they release, when they release, where they release, and how those releases ‘integrate’. It feels like brand mentality is what you’re pointing at, but I feel like you’re approaching it from an outmoded perspective. It appears to me that Outlier have the means and ways to eschew the norms in that regard. Our philosophies on this obviously differ as I was elated to see ACR going the random drops route (pricing though- yeah that was a quick ascent I’ll agree for sure). Is it frustrating if you miss a piece- of course. Is it fucking awesome if you caught that one drop- fuck yes! But are you privileged enough to think you’re owed that piece because whatever the fuck fill in the blank-ness...? In the long run none of us really truly need this shit to survive. It’s fun to play with in many respects, and also has very utilitarian aspects and overall usefulness if done right. I just don’t see the point in giving Outlier shit for doing it their own way and saying fuck the whatever zeitgeist. Which isn’t to say I respect or crave all of their pieces. I had a pair of new denim, and they didn’t fit my aesthetics. I appreciated the thought and time put into them. Passed them on to a friend that’s a bit less tech wear oriented than I am, and he’s fucking elated by the cut and material. Their shit runs the gamut of grey man to active wear to full fledged ‘new’ shit, which is not the easiest to pull off imo. TLDR: I hate their onsite modeling/branding but I like their chutzpah and general design sense. YMMV
