    What would a 1970's Marlon Brando wear if transported to the year 2045 to star in a live action DeusEx film... I wonder? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Can't wait to dig my teeth into re-imagining the past! Stay tuned for the upcoming release of a newly reconsidered version of the legendary 1972 film "Last Tango in Paris". ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We celebrate one of the main characters of the movie, his swag, his sex, and his legacy with a fresh new aesthtic... Coming soon: The Marlon Brando FRASCATI coat, made by d'Avenza x the Intern

    @pompadork - You make me wonder why it is that I have no colour shifting fabrics in my shelves... lets fix this! I have a very exciting announcement! Techwear is coming to Savile Row!!! And I'm off to Italy to make it so! What happens when you put a technical agenda and utilitarian focus in the minds and hands of the finest Italian tailors? The historic Italian fashion house D'avenza, along with the fabric mills of Luigi Botto and Ormezzano have asked me to bring together two of the most radically disparate worlds of fashion... beskpoke hand craft is about to collide head-on with bleeding edge material science! D'avenza is considered by many to be the finest manufacturer of ready-to-wear tailored clothing, and produces the most luxurious textiles for the highest levels of the fashion world. I can't wait to begin... I can barely breathe... It feels like I was just handed the keys to a new Ferrari!!! With the price of techwear what it is today... there's no reason not to approach garments with the same level of hand crafted bespoke care that goes into the finest tailored suits. In June I'm off to Italy to explore the possibility of hand crafted Italian technical apparel. At Luigi Botto and Ormezzano I get to explore radical new types of textiles, for example: blending technical yarns with the highest performing luxury wools such as Vicuna. This is going to be fucking wild!

    ChunWoHoCo... they are the webbing supplier you want. From ArcTeryx to LaSportiva to UnderArmour... they are the industry go-to. http://www.chunwoho.com.hk/ Theyll make you any possible weave of webbing, cord, elastic, etc. even rubber molded bits, zipper pulls, laser etching, tags and labels... bigass company. It's rare that I'm able to ask them for something they're unable to create. Minimum orders are about 1000M... but 1" webbing, even complicated custom weaves, is rarely more than about 4cents a meter.

    Here's a Google Drive link to the high-res shots of the softgoods in the auction for those interested in some quality inspo.

    @danii - Why so grumpy? Love or hate the film as film all you want. It's canon now, and bears as much involvement and approval as possible from the creators. Many of my favorite artists and effects legends worked their asses off to the utmost of their ability, friends of mine disappeared for months to dedicate themselves to the production. The outfits for the majority of the film were purchased from local Vancouver fashion shops known and loved among the streetwear community, and supported a number of small businesses in this industry. There's no denying the quality of the garments being discussed here; your comment is ignorant.... even moreso considering your gift for the DIY craft. Don't be so dismissive of things unfamiliar to your point of view. lovelovelove B. I'm with @gantz on this one.

    A new ultralight brand emerged for early access today, called Cimoro - https://cimoro.com/products Looks like a new Woven/Laminated hybrid fabric, not your typical "cuben fiber" crap. Gallery with copypasta descriptions and prices here.

    PM me some closeup pics and your address. I've got a bin of deprecated Duraflex buckles which I have no application for, and rolls of a few different shades of olive webbing... methinks I've got everything they're using in that strap. (I've swapped brands and no-longer use Duraflex).

    ... well someones gotta pay for this bandwidth, bwahaha: I'll upload an image directory with all the high-res pics of the clothing items later today.

    If you're new to the prop auction world... you're gunna be shocked at the prices some of this stuff will hit by the time it closes. Especially this GITS auction, as it's a particularly unusual one. It's rare for there to be so many completely custom made costume prices for a production. Also there are a whole bunch of items using never before seen technologies, such as Majors Silicone body suit and truly flexible chromed rubber. Not to mention the fact that many of these items were conceived by arguably the finest concept artist on this planet Maciej Kuciara: https://www.instagram.com/maciejkuciara/ https://www.artstation.com/maciej This is a particularly spicy auction!

    A good friend of mine did much of the art direction and concept drawings for Ghost In The Shell. Would you guys like me to reach out and see if I can get some techwear perspective from the people who made these costumes? I have my eyes on a number of pieces in the auction! Huge fan of the series, would love to own a chunk of it.

    Met with deadbird today! Very excited about the possibilities there! I'll do my utmost to make you all proud!

    I messaged a recent contact picked up through my challenge with your question. Taylor Weldon -the designer behind the Daka series - hopefully he'll be able to provide us with the answer soon. [edit] @noobedloser - The Daka textile is a custom milled solution, but from what is described it's not a particularly specialized or exclusive textile. The reasoning for the custom development mostly concerned thickness, texture, colour etc.The fabric is a TPU coated polyester, with coating on both sides. The coating negates the need for Nylon, as it makes the textile exponentially stronger, 100% waterproof, and highly chemical resistant. The development of perfecting the Daka was apparently quite the ordeal, taking over 300 prototypes to get the welding just right! Huge props to Taylor for the commitment in the design and development of this product! I myself carry a variety of Daka pouches and love every inch of each of them! I was unable to secure the exact supplier details, but I suspect this textile comes from a Taiwanese source (possibly Tomlong, or Cotec). Hope this answers your question. [/edit]
