  1. Acronym.

    Can anyone confirm for me the outseam measurements (with and without length of cuff) on P23A-DS and P23TS-S in both size M and L? I've been scouring retail sites and wayback machine but have come up short on measurements that seem realistic, or that are clear if they include the cuff or not... I'm also looking for the waist measurements on the DS ones, laid-flat, with the waistband cinched and fully loose. I'm trying to compare 'real-world' measurements to inform a purchase in early 2018. I'm tall (34" inseam) and skinny (32" waist), so confirming the right sizing has been tricky in the past. These measurements would be helpful. Thanks in advance and much appreciated! Thanks! I got what I needed. Shout out to @0.42k for the assist!

    I dont think so... And Colette is done-zo now.. but maybe in the future direct from acr? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    J28 just bumped up a spot in my to-buy list with this use-case. Lol. Nice fit man.

    Yeah, I’ve been keeping my eye on this since I first heard about it. Too early to say how Acr will implement this new tech, but my mind immediately went to: “Acronym is making their own footwear for FW18!!!”. *shrug* I guess we’ll just have to wait and see?

    Agree. I never use the ones on my GT-J34.

    Wondering what people's preferred method of printing/transferring graphics onto webbing is? I did a couple quick searches but I'm not finding anything helpful.

    This is the first I'm hearing of this and this is crazy awesome. Has anyone ordered anything recently from EU and can confirm they didnt pay taxes on the import? If so, this is actually a game changer for ordering from like, End with their free shipping... (lol, until Brexit i guess...)

    I've been working on some fit pics and will deliver soon. The only place I've seen the black/grey in stick was at BBS in NYC back in mid-October, and they only had a few of the smaller sizes left (7, 8, etc..)

    Got my BBSxSalomon Bamba2's a couple weeks back at Serpentine, and while I love them, after a handful of wears, its becoming very clear that these will not be anywhere close to ideal for a harsh, snowy, Toronto winter. The mesh membrane that runs along the top of the toe-box and up the lateral side toward the ankle lets air through like a screen door. Not a deal-breaker around 5-10 degrees Celsius, but once the temps dip below 0, these will likely have to go out of rotation.. Again, very glad I got these for the transitional seasons, but for those considering getting these to trudge through a foot of snow, they're not the solution you're looking for. PS, loving the representation Toronto is getting lately here on sufu. Nice to see more Canadians out in the wild

    I do agree it's cool erlsn is doing something different and diverging from past aesthetics, but I guess its not what i look for in my techwear. Also, correct me if im wrong but I think the alpine never released before in all white, it was the 2in1. Eye's peeled for what else is in store this season!

    I'm still not there with this colorway of the Alpine. It's not terrible by any stretch of the imagination, but I'm not looking to be that loud and conspicuous... It's too much like a regular snowboarding jacket from billabong or forum or whatever. If this was just all white, i'd be into it. It's mainly the stripes pattern thats turning me off. Hopefully there'll be another colorway that's more appealing this season thats more palatable.

    Cant help but feel like there is some potential in these. They have many of the standard tech hallmarks, but they'd need a little DIY magic to get them to 100%.

    Hey just thought I'd share some of my own recent DIY work. Its nothing fancy, but I've been toying around with making my own belts. I know, I know, DIY belts are a dime a dozen in this thread, but I'm pretty satisfied with how this one turned out so... My first few were okay by most techwear standards, but I think I've finally found the configuration that best works for me and works with all my pants across multiple brands (Arc'teryx, GG, SISP). I decided to go with this double tension-lock design. Admittedly not original, but in my opinion, the most versatile. The challenge that I was mainly trying to overcome was the fact that the belt loops on my GG Stability Joggers were too small to comfortably pass a 25mm Cobra buckle through. I could get it through there, but I was definitely placing strain on the loops each time, and I wanted to avoid that. With this configuration, the belt effectively exists as three separate pieces. The left and right sides of the buckle, with corresponding tension-locks, and the length of the belt itself. You're able to thread the belt through any sized loops, sans the buckle, and then attach it all together at the front. The other benefit is that you can change out the length of the belt if you have additional webbing, or even change the colour of the webbing if you wanted to. Now, there are a few downsides to this config too, I'll admit. Since the distance between the tension-locks and the buckle is fixed, you might run into situations where the locks sit right where a loop is... which is not ideal. I'm currently thinking up a way to maybe add some adjustability to that part of the config (between buckle and lock). I measured out the loops on all my pants and then went with a length that best works with all of them. Let me know what you guys think. Always happy to hear feedback. My sewing skills are minimal, so please don't be too harsh regarding the quality! haha
