    I just really hope that they don't change the return and warranty policy

    ..I seriously wish the Mionn came out in alloy would be an immediate buy

    Has anyone takes a look at the Monitor SL? How is it? it it just the monitor we all know and love made with the same fabric as the isogon?

    @scamster I usually get a 34 with Veilance and got a 34 for my Sequent. I still had to sinch one button on both sides to have the pants sit nice and stable on my hips. I have yet to find a position where they are at all restrictive

    The sequent is quite a different cut when compared to the apparat. The Sequent is much wider through the waist and thighs and is much less restrictive overall.

    I'm not sure. I am a fairly large guy, 6'1", 90kg, athletic build. My tts is a 34 and with Voronois I have no real issue with the thighs being too tight and I usually have trouble finding pants that aren't restrictive through the thigh and backside.

    Has anyone got a pair of Dyadic pants yet? What do you think of them? I want to like them, but I can't shake that they are more or less a pair of very expensive sweatpants.

    Never really tried, I usually use the Grangers performance wash for those

    100% recommend, great stuff, I wash my jackets and Windstopper pants in 2in1 at least once every 2 weeks to keep them sufficiently water repellent

    Is the isogon supposed to be returning this spring? @branespload ?
  11. arcteryx veilance

    I mean, yeah, it does fade over time. Took a few months and about 10 or 12 washes for me to notice any real change.

    @johngalt They still had all the classic greys/blacks in various different shirts when I was there. That was on boxing day though, and a very busy sale

    There were a few on Boxing Day at the North Vancouver factory store, picked one up. I had forgotten just how nice they are.

    @Nebulae Thank you for throwing the book at me, I'm a bit out of touch with my posthuman theory. I haven't read The Supermodern Wardrobe but will now. Yes, I did neglect to mention these other design ques you are right, and you are totally right that the other details in Acronym's work are just as much a feature of "proper" techwear as weatherproofing. It is a similar 'clothing-as-augmentation' idea. Veilance is only involved because of Leslie's reference to Hugh's responsibility for it. Honestly, thank you, we need more discussion with actual evidence behind it.

    @Cornuto you have a point, but the Japanese Repro scene is slightly more political than that. Uncle Bill (William Gibson) wrote multiple novels which describe what Repro is about (namely Pattern Recognition and Zero History). The point Repro culture is trying to make is that what was American workwear in the first half of the 20th century is, despite technological advancements, of higher quality than what most people wear today. That's the point of the black Buzz Rickson's MA-1: that it is every bit as functional as the ones the USAF used in WWII.
