  1. Ken Tonio never fails to amaze. His creativity really shines with stone island. 

    With that being said, the vid was a tripppppp. Very different from the usual. Felt more like an audio visual display rather than a video highlighting the collection. I dig it. 

    Solid pieces this season but the prices have me going gaga. Gotta save up a bit. 

    P.s has anyone handled the ripstop grid fabric? Is it as noisy / swishy as it looks or...?

    Also, thoughts on the quad wallet? 

  2. On the topic of SISP; if someone is looking to sell the SISP x bagjack transformable messenger, please do let me know! 

    Prefer the Trylons but i'm open to the other variants as well (Raso, cordura etc). 

    P.S if someone knows someone (wink wink), i'd love to treat the two of ya to a nice cup of coffee, a pack of tobacco cooked to perfection in seasoned oak pipes and a warm blanket amidst the Alpine riviera. 


  3. There's a sick wool softshell jacket (poly + wool + elast) that i'm really looking forward to getting my hands on. IIRC it is similar in cut to the mionn IS, with the added benefit of a neat looking (attached) storm hood.

    The seasonal fishtail parka is going to come in some wacky / strange / cool material that seems to be a shiny variant of a ripstop weave. Bright neon yellow and black from what i've seen so far. 

    Field jacket returns in hollowcore I believe. Similar in cut and design to the naslan light split jacket from this season (not the hollowcore detachable variant). Seen one in a syruppy purp. 


    Some other noteworthy jawnz-

    Pretty sick looking cargos this season. They've got detachable (de-zip on two sides) side-pockets that are aligned just like the p-10A (or any A variant). 3-side 2-side pocket access. Pocket is made out of some shiny/crinkled fabric. Reminds me of the prismatic / toffee-wrapper / glazed silk jackets from the mainline. 

    The beanie this season made me go wtf at first (and not in a good way). Simply put, it unfolds partially to cover your face, like half a balaclava (except, it only reaches the bottom of your nose which looked kinky). It then dawned on me that the beanie is meant to work with the accompanying turtleneck pullover. the unfolded turtleneck covers the bottom part of your face and overlaps rather nicely). IMO this can be an upgrade or a downgrade in comparison to the legendary fusion gaiter. Depends on wardrobe flexibility I suppose. 

    Biggest change comes in the form of the choice of footwear. Traditionally, sisp release one model of shoes in two variants per season. They stopped doing this from ss18 I believe. FW17 actually had 3 variants of the slip ons - engraved leather hi-top chelsea / suede engraved hit-top chelsea / engraved leather convertible slip on. They seem to have moved away from the slip on / chelsea sneaker boot with a flat outsole and instead they've opted for a vibran outsole that is a lot more aggressive / hiker - core that seems to be the flavour of the month in fashion. The upper has a pretty sick graphic element on it (black leather and suede base with white graphic overlays). Quite a unique shoe, still unsure on it as i've always been a fan of their flat soled slip ons. 


    Sorry for the long post. Been meaning to type this down for a while but I kept missing the train for some odd reason. 

    Edit: RE cargo pocket access.

  4. I look forward to the day when I can swiftly add a stotz version of the J-67 to my cart...and check out with a slightly crazed look in my eyes. 

    And now I wait. Patiently.

  5. I feel the choice to go with the ivory zippers was due to the fact that the GT is actually milk-white rather than pure white. I imagine the ivory looks better with the milky shade rather than a starkly contrasting pure white. 

    Idk. just my 2 cents.

  6. Ohh, the j-33 E looks like it might be a waist-length version of the j-34. 

    Edit: nvm

    Edit: Lenny is wearing (slinging) some form of a poncho or cape in the p-32 pics

  7. *Raises gusseted arm with a question*


    Regarding the WS that is used on the veilance indisce blazers (not counting LT variants), has acronym released any models using the same WS? The handfeel is quite lux and silky smooth without the plasticky feeling (ripstop WS; which is the only other variant i've got hands-on experience with)
