    Woops, forgot to follow up. Pretty good quality, cool lookin sleeve. I got the large to fit my 15” mbp. It was a bit too big, didn’t fit snug. It’s just xpac, so no padding. The look doesn’t suit me, a bit too military for the office. I’ll be sending it back. Not a bad sleeve, just not for me.

    FUCK velcro. That dumb shit is for astronaughts. Give me a zip or snap, anything but velcro. I wasn’t dying to disturb the entire office getting a cable out of my bag but here we go. Ruin my god damn wool gear you stupid space fuck.

    I wouldn't advise it unless you're doing some kind of activity be it walking at a less than leisurely pace, or biking. I stood outside in line at a ramen shop. That was pretty brutal. This is with the shell over it.

    Fahrenheit (including wind chill). It’s a bit of an exaggeration but humor me. Typically I’d commute with a frame and mionn and almost every day in February had a “feels like” temp sub 10 degrees. Most days I unzipped by the end of the walk to avoid sweating. Not to say you can go out with cargo shorts and a mionn and be good. Sub 30 degrees I wear long underwear and a neck gaiter if the wind is kicking. Add a shell or heavier mid layer to taste and you’re good from (actual temperature not including wind chill) 0-55 degrees F. There was probably 2 days this winter in Boston that I thought it may be nice to have a down jacket. On those days I just walked faster.

    My Mionn gets absolutely abused during winter. With a long sleeve underneath it’s good in to the negatives.

    Does anyone have both a shadow project piece in “Jersey-R” and an acronym soft shell (SS) that can compare the fabrics?

    The hood is my only real gripe with my Arris. Kinda whack.

    1. Smock nyco anorak: I don't want to trash it too much cos I'm gonna have to sell this thing at some point. Here's a link to cordura's nyco descriptions. Basically, a very hard wearing nylon cotton blend. The material itself is fine, but why do I want my rain jacket to be made out of this? Without doing proper research, I went out with a nyco anorak expecting some level of protection and got completely drenched. And it dried slow to boot. I don't have a big bone to pick with the materials in these garments, just with how they seem to pick random materials without much thought of how it will be used. The webbing netting on the side also makes it the heaviest garment in my wardrobe, making it unfit for commuting with. It looks great, though. 2. Stretch moleskin cargos: just really meh for me. They didn't seem to give the coziness I was hoping for. My outlier og cloth pants are tougher, lighter, stretchier, and warmer. Just underwhelming for the luxury price point, even at half off. Sending this one back. Once again, love the silhouette (other than it being a little too drape-y for me) and color, looks great. 3. 10 year anniversary tee: Not really high exceptions, just a cotton tee. The only surprise here was that the material in white was thin enough to see my nipples through the shirt. Slightly disappointing. I love the graphics, and the sleeve detailing. The world can see my nipples, thats fine. Gonna keep this one. I consider this a very unseasoned and even possibly, naive review. But it's my perspective of trying out shadow project, and only getting half of what I expected. Form but no function. Looks great though

    Stone Island Shadow Project

    Very tempted to give a nice rant on my disappointment from every shadow project piece I've acquired. Which, admittedly isn't that many (3). Starting to seem less like techwear and more like flexwear. Edit: It's a bit of a mixed bag. There are good pieces, but you have to dig. A lot of this shit just plain doesn't perform (don't get me started on nyco). Probably just as much my fault for using the price point to gauge the usefulness of the pieces.

    Anyone get their hands on the cargos that were dropped secretly a few days ago? Could only find a few pics on grailed. They didn't look awful. Edit: Just realized these are the SS19 cargos that someone got from the EU drop. The silhouette kinda sux. Zzz

    I love the sillhouette of the kimono hoody. Not a fan of the material. Would’ve loved to see this in a wool/wool blend and without the hood.

    Does anyone here own the stretch moleskine cargos from FW18? Any comments on the piece or the fabric? Need a little push to commit to buying.... I'm buying them
