    The Align MX has the best-designed pockets in a pair of veilance pants, Cannot recommend them enough

    I know I'm kind of late to the party about the rebranding but here are my two cents: When I was told that there was a rebranding happening a couple of months ago, I thought it would be moving in the same direction that Volvo took Polestar, which is very much so in the direction that @Inkinsurgent is speaking of: architectural firms and art galleries. Why Veilance stood out to me in the first place is that it was the embodiment of that Gibsonian idea of "wearable architecture" and this was visible in every part of the brand. Veilance was akin to architecture in its design in its peculiar and innovative patterning and functional material choices. The promotional material (like the example provided by @damagedroid) was meticulously designed to present Veilance's commitment to augment the body in a way that I find reminiscent of Arthur Erickson's commitment to augment human interaction with physical spaces. this new ethos feels derivative of a change made by other fashion brands like Burberry which are trying to get a little more 'with the times'. The shift just feels uninspired, like Veilance is no longer a trailblazer and has become more concerned with the muses of the fashion industry than ever before. Veilance was important because it treated itself more like architecture than fashion. This change of branding says that this is no longer the case.

    Mmmmm I really like those loden apparats, the duo-tone works really well

    the Ny/Co feels more substantial for sure, but I did have an incident at a party in a friend's backyard where I accidentally bumped a rock wall and it left a small hole in the pants. I've had bigger scrapes than that in terratex pants and have never gotten holes from it.

    Some SS19 images coming out of the Ginza pop-up The new Apparats and Ioden are what I'm looking forward to most

    Yes they are the sequents, my bad. Gotta brush up on my terminology.

    These ones on the hips. They are there to replace a belt

    I found that the waist and trunk region are more spacious than their counterparts, but I think this is for articulation. Don't be afraid to use the snaps on the side to since down the waist

    I would have to disagree about size. The waist and thigh are cut quite generously on the Align MX. When trying them my usual 34 made the pants look much more like something fitted for LEAF, but with a 33 it was back to the slim cut of Veilance. I would go down half a size In regards to the material Burly was of course designed for ice climbing and should provide significant protection from wind. It is also very abrasion resistant (and holds DWR like nothing else).
