Already mentioned before but length wise its pretty tts and the arms are a bit relaxed.

Although I do want to comment on the material itself. I do not know if its true dryskin(correct me if I'm wrong)

-CORRECTED AND REDACTED-

I love the hoodie in general, it's a great all season piece.

Thanks for your insight, @AvantSol.
What size are you wearing? Could you please post a picture of the fabric in detail? Can you see any pilling?

Thanks again and cheers

Ahh SS14, such a great season. Wish they had made the P15s in DS though!

Edit: Has anyone EVER seen a black 36 with the green sleeve in the wild?

True, just checked earlier page captures and it's actually been there for a while ... not sure why, but my site monitor gave me an alert today pointing that vid out as the change.

The site monitor I used to use always did stuff like that. Not sure if it’s picking up on actual changes being made somewhere or what.

General question for subnet boys out there—how many (if any) interops jackets  can we look forward to this F/W? S/S has been sadly lacking...

Hi -- who stocks (if it isn't sold out) Acronym in Tokyo? Thanks

Not sure if they got anything but I think Eliminator stocks ACR. I've seen some IG posts of 3rd arms in second hand stores.

And here I am looking for more pants and shirts. Not for F/W but generally I guess.

Ragtag in Harajuku had a few older pieces last month when I was there. Nothing of excitement and everything was size S.

Eliminator was completely sold out of everything.

J66-GT, what can the fraying do to the durability and performance of the jacket?

I don't believe it would impact the durability and performance too much. The main risk of leaving the edge unfinished and raw would be of the laminate peeling apart from the edge, with a teflon based membrane sticking together fabric layers isn't trivial, and having this run splitting the fabric apart from the edge. This splitting risk looks to be mitigated against by additional stitching behind the edge to stabilize it. I'd expect the main risk factors to impact performance and durability of the jacket would be the same as most waterproof breathable laminates: DWR degradation and oil contamination. I don't see these two factors impacted by the jacket directly, but if someone were to wash the jacket less in an effort to reduce the fraying there would be an increase risk of body oil build up and contamination. Time will tell.

Well I did it.

I just bought a $1239 pair of fucking pants.

Never thought I’d be saying that.

Although I bought an $875 chef knife 3 months back and I never thought I’d be saying that either.

Shit creeps up fast...
