I have an irrational fear of wearing anything windstopper, as the fabric is literally as thin as paper. I've seen thicker DHL packing material than WS, even though it's obviously more durable. Maybe it's instinct...

Strange, but that shit is unbeatable and durable af. My 61ws is still  in like new cond after 3 years of daily use. Also it has pretty good breathability, so it can be worn even during summer time. 

-WS fabric: active shell ripstop windstopper ZAO or VEGA (don't remember the exact name) like on the J47A-WS, 61-WS, 25-WS etc.  (not like WS on J50, 58, 68, 46)  is the best fabric imo

 To be honest, I much prefer it to GT in almost every way, and even though it's only water resistant, I still wear it as a rain coat a lot of the time.  

This! I know hard shells are sexy, but they are the least useful bit of kit in your pack. Unless you really spend time in the outdoors, soft shells and water resistant jackets > GT.

If it stays in place while cycling to work it’s a nice idea.

Sounds like the leg extenders are secured by Velcro on the jacket, so maybe a little Velcro is on the new pants....

So after 10+ years and 20+ jackets I’ve never seen this logo peel off. 
 

But here is J68-PL after two wears :/ (also note loose thread in top right corner...also never seen this)

can't imagine doing anything other than switching the logo tape to the blank tape immediately upon receipt and throwing the logo tape into the bag where it will live forever

I’ve had several coats with adjustable length and none fastened to the pants. Though I do have a cp coat with removable pants :D

But I don’t think attaching would work very well in motion because of changing geometries.

I agree here. It seems to have the added benefit of letting rain/precipitation run off below the front pants pocket and keeping that access point dry. I think back to some days when I was younger and the bottom of my pants would be wet, with the pocket area following in a close second.

To mark Berlin Fashion week and in collaboration with the city of Berlin, we've created BERLIN, BERLIN, a weekend-long virtual celebration of the city.

We hooked up with some of the best artists, designers, musicians, and photographers in the city to produce exclusive mixes, fashion films, performance art, a mind-blowing AR exhibition, and more. Next weekend, from January 22 to 24, we'll have a lineup of content from Keinemusik, Sucuk und Bratwurst, Beinghunted, Acronym, Jonas Lindstroem, and Hamburger Bahnhof, to name just a few.

 

Could possibly "just" be an extension to the whole virtual SKY AND COLOUR art gallery or something different

when the design is so convoluted and unmemorable, people forget what the thing is called lol

"sky any colour" is so pretentious sounding its no surprise they're sponsored by "REPUBLIC OF GAMERS"

Question:

Was the P23 made in XL? I'm almost positive they were. However, I've been on the lookout for a pair for a long while now and have yet to find one in my size - want to make sure I'm not just passing on a L if it is actually the size I should be buying.

Yes, I own the P23-TS in XL. All depends on your height tbh, I’m 6.5 so the XL is a perfect fit for me. Hope that helps.

Much appreciated. I haven’t seen a pair for sale outside of the last drop a few years ago. Fingers crossed for one soon.

I will keep an eye out and if I decide to sell my pair will let you know.

Last spring was the first time I tried to be ready for a drop, but I was late and missed out on some pieces I wanted. Trying to avoid that again.

Should we be expecting the SS21 mothersite drop soon? Excuse the question/ignorance if it’s taboo.
