  1. Urban Techwear Community Sales Thread

    https://www.grailed.com/listings/4729532-Arc-Teryx-Veilance--Final-Drop--Graph-Sweater-Peat Not my listing, but NWT and a decent amount below retail.

    Size large hem: ~21" p2p: ~23" I guess it depends on how you want it to fit. I had a medium. It fit but I didn't like that I couldn't layer under it without looking like a stuffed sausage. The sleeves on the large are a bit long, but I prefer the roomier fit.

  4. The ACRONYM Community Sales Thread

    That's pretty laughable that they wouldn't offer any assistance on a new item that has a defect especially when sold at that price. Sorry to hear that.
  5. Your biggest issue with techwear is ?

    Sorry meant to acknowledge this in my other post but I'm on mobile (or technologically incompetent) and had a cocktail or two. Seconding that Barbour had/has some very nice tech pieces. Not really my style at the moment but can work well in fits and keep a low-key/clean look.

    Definately agree with you and it's really nice to see innovative textiles coming out. As for Patagonia I think you can get some really nice pieces for pretty low price points. Although it doesn't have the wild designs and well fitting cuts of brands like acrnm, Veilance, Poutnik etc... I have used a Patagonia down sweater for numerous backpacking trips. It's 850 fill power and packs down to about 1 liter in the chest pocket. It's a perfect mid layer that's light, small, incredibly warm, and durable.
  7. Your biggest issue with techwear is ?

    First off who are you and what planet did you come from? Your 30-day diy posts over the last month have been incredible. Secondly, I can wholeheartedly agree with you that a lot of marketed urban tech items (specifically ACG whom you mentioned) probably wouldn't hold up for shit in real life unsatisfactory conditions. The shells and insulators may work decently in these scenarios. However, those heavy weight DWR'ed cotton cargos would not only be uncomfortable to hike in but probably not last a trip or two in the backcountry. I'm definately not as well verse in textiles as you, but there has to be a certain point when the performance of a garment has reached its limit due to current technology. Imo the argument of "it costs more because it's higher quality" is null and void in a lot of cases due to this. That doesn't; however, mean that companies/industry should get complacent in the pieces/products they put out. It's an ever evolving process and they should follow accordingly. One can find plenty of high quality clothing that perform well and aren't outrageously expensive. Lastly, I originally only knew of outdoor oriented brands from traveling and backpacking experiences. I would thank a lot of folks on this forum and others for sharing info and expanding my knowledge of what to look for in good quality items. In the end, the question remains of what do you need to be comfortable for any scenario you may encounter. I feel that's what it's all about if you're truely interested in "techwear".

    Thanks, that's kinda what I was figuring. I guess I just run too hot and sweat too much lol.

    Can anyone give me some insight as to why there is a fleece material around the armpit/side on the interior of the Mionn IS? I feel like this absorbs more sweat and the jacket starts to smell more quickly. Pic for reference.

    Thanks for the pics and info. So these run even smaller than the F/W Bamba 2's then? IIRC the size 44's I have are tagged as US 10.5. The desert beige color is spot on. They remind me of colors in the soil/rocks at some of the US National Parks (i.e. Zion, Bryce, Grand Canyon).

  12. Still one of my favorite pairs of sunglasses, Jean Paul Geaultier not sure of the model. Maybe it's just my 9 year old self projecting how much of a bad ass Leon I thought was when I first saw the film.

    Pretty much impossible to zip up with one hand, at least for me. I've always had to use two hands when zipping up. One to hold the bottom tab and one to zip.
