    If you have to ask you’re not looking terribly close.

    Price goes back up to retail when checking out if you're located in the US. For SSENSE
  3. 116740 APPROVED SHOES

    Looks like neoprene or something, they also don’t appear to be vented like the last ones so hopefully.

    New stealth < Old stealth The fit on the new one seems odd how it flares out at the bottom. And of course they would add a jacket sling to basically the same jacket I just bought :|
  5. Stone Island Shadow Project

    I picked up the nylon metal 'spider' field jacket during the recent sales and figured I'd share a brief review. Photo album: https://imgur.com/a/UbxE2Lo Specs: Field jacket with articulations tunnel sleeves, detachable hood with visor removable via Velcro. Single layer “nylon metal” fabric with anti-drop treatment to give light water and wind-resistance. Two lower hand pockets with snap closures and two chest pockets with YKK zipper closures. Two way YKK zippers along with additional chest and neck snaps can be used to fully or partially close the jacket. Sleeves have articulations tunnels that allow the user to pull an elastic band and secure via a button. This shortens the sleeves and changes the fit. Elastic drawstring located on the hood and bottom of the hem for adjusting the fit. Size/Fit: Chest measurements are pretty generous giving the jacket a somewhat relaxed fit. The sleeves seem to run a bit on the shorter side so the only time I see the articulation tunnels being useful is if the temperature increases, the wearer could pull the sleeves up. I haven’t done this yet, but it seems convenient as the sleeves will not slide down since they are secured in place via the elastic band. I initially sized up to a Large and did not like the fit as it was too baggy. I returned for my typical size Medium which fit much better. For reference I’m 5’ 10” (179 cm) and 175 lbs. (79.5 kg) fit pic below. Impressions: I was looking for another lightweight summer jacket which led me to pick this up. The dying process and metallic finish give the jacket a very cool sheen where the color seems to change when in light. The color is an olive-green but in certain lights looks to be more of a golden brown. Being able to remove the hood is a nice feature as it gives the jacket a cleaner look. When attached there is a flap that covers up the buttons which secure the hood so they are not visible. I haven’t toyed around with leaving the hood on and removing the visor too much yet but this is another neat feature. I wish that when the visor is removed the two Velcro strips were opposite (loop and hook). This way you could fold over the hood, attach them and not have the two black strips visible. I have only worn it out in a light rain which the anti-drop treatment held up against. During a heavy rain fall I would expect the jacket to wet out rather quickly. There are also buttons on the interior of the jacket to secure the SI badge if the wearer doesn’t want it exposed on the sleeve. Dislikes: I have only come across two issues with the jacket so far. The snap button closures on the cuff of the sleeve come undone relatively easily. When taking off the jacket the buttons sometimes pop off and need to be re-secured when I put the jacket back on. A minor issue but still annoying none the less. The elastic drawstring on the bottom hem has no locking mechanism which makes it pretty much useless. As of right now, I tied a small knot to keep it at my desired tension. I’ll buy some plastic clasps to add to the drawstring but can’t believe this wouldn’t be included on the jacket. If anyone has any questions feel free to hit me up. Thanks for reading.

    @danii is right I’m in the states and it shows up automatically. VAT minus 30% would be between 40-50% off.
  7. Stone Island Shadow Project

    Is it the same material as the trousers or a bit lighter? Yeah as has been mentioned before they’re pretty heavy with all the zippers and flap covers. I wouldn’t be able to wear them w/o a belt.

    Pretty quiet in here since the drop. So 40-50% off SISP SS18 at L'inde Le Palais. http://www.lindelepalais.com/en-US/men/designer/stone_island_shadow_project Anyone pick up any SS items and care to share impressions?

    Yes and yes please.

    @thatslapz thanks that’s what I was assuming when comparing the P24A-S to -DS. I’m with you on DS over S for pants as well.
  11. Acronym.

    No thanks, I’d be $1.5k poorer then. How is storing items in the attached pockets on DS pants (P24A/23A)? Does the stretch make heavier items feel awkward or bounce around?

    From the GTV product pages: “DISCLAIMER: Due to the industrial nature of this fabric as well as its high-visibility hue some stains may prove impossible to remove with cleaning. 'Strike through' of the membrane color to the outer surface of the fabric will also occur when the fabric is scored with hard objects. This is an intrinsic characteristic of the fabric and cannot be considered as defective.” So does that mean any rough abrasion will cause a dark mark to be left on the fabric?

    I thought he said the intermittent drops were only for spring. AW 18 will be back to one drop or broken into two as in the past.
