Stone Island soft shell R gloves

 

Wq7E8GCl.jpg

 

Had ordered these in Medium (usual glove size), but these just fit like ass, or maybe my thumb is just too short.

 

Fingers fit to the tips fine, but the thumb seems like it should have dropped down some (about an inch gap to fill).

A couple things. Who out there has tried the Bagjack NXL messenger? Did you find the strap uncomfy and bad weight distribution? That's what I found. Was wandering if anyone tried or thought of swapping out the strap with a Mission Workshop strap.

 

 

I was actually just at Selfedge LA and found out they had it for sale. Cool tech, but the backpack straps are bullshit. Essentially the messenger strap (thick) acts as one side, and they have a half-width strap for the other side.  It felt unbalanced, and I wouldn't want to use for a large load. As a messenger, strap isn't too bad, but doesn't have padding. Fidlock buckles are pretty sweet, spent five minutes just fuxing with it.  If you're in LA, they had the medium Bagjack NXL and a small as well. 

 

It converts well into a briefcase (pseudo professional lol), but the backpack idea seems just kind of tacked on, to be honest.

This is definitely random but I was just thinking about SS10 undercover messenger as outta left-field tech. translucent material married to old-school leather. 

undercoverism-ss2010-messenger-bag-front

definitely one of my favorite undercover bags/collections everywhere. 

(also might be blowing a spot, but http://page9.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/k166426704), PM me if you want it taken down.

There are so few bags that transform into messenger+backpack+briefcase. Too bad the bagjack doesn't deliver the goods. The NXL with leather would make a nice professional briefcase too.

I gotta be honest, handling it in person was pretty sweet. even without the backpack aspect, it's just a very good bag all around. I'm still debating on picking it up, now that I know I won't have to deal with a german proxy (who does that around here?)

Less talked about, but SuE put me on to Massif. Bought one of the cheap-o budget Blazers (deep discount). For the price and what it is (my planned beater) I like it a lot. It's super soft and pliable almost like wearing a sweatshirt.

 

Really enjoy the non-dressy slouchy feel/fit of the blazer.

I also grabbed one - for $70 it's really not bad at all. The fit is basically spot on. Thanks, SuE.

for the canadians in this thread:

 

how's the quality of MEC base layers? thinking of buying some since i'm tired of freezing in the winter. figured i'd buy these instead of heattech. also how's the quality over brands like smartwool/icebreaker? better to pay the extra money for these brands instead?

It's really popular with a specific segment of the population, but I can't for the life of me understand why. Most of their stuff was made in China and didn't appear to provide anything above and beyond what you could pick up from a local sporting good store.

 

I'm sure Amazon will have some nice deals on Smartwool, Icebreaker etc. as we approach the holidays.

Sierra trading post has good prices on merino wool stuff, but since I live close to the border I usually order from non canadian places just because of the price. 

 

I just find the cut of mec stuff to be weird, sometimes they try new designs and it just looks weird

Not V neck, but check out FERA. I just learned about them and I'm pretty impressed with their electronically knitted base layer.

There are mesh panels knit into the body for better ventilation. (Crew neck and half zip ergo crews are available).

mentioned this in the veilance thread about the sinter sft and only caliroots selling it, here's another one ...

no one include stone island themselves are selling this, possibly because it's not the best looking thing but still odd.

Those Cole Haan boots from a couple pages back are on sale on the Cole Haan website for Cyber Monday, $278 down to $194.

 

Check that, use the code 'CYBER' and it takes an ADDITIONAL 40% off. Comes out to under $125 shipped.

 

Edit2: Looks like the 40% off reduced was an error, only shows as 40% off original now. We'll see how fast my order gets cancelled.

edit: quasky beat me to the punch and posted in the acronym thread
 
 

i recently interviewed errolson for nomad, thought some of you guys might be interested: http://www.nomadshop.net/index.php/entry/431

we spoke specifically about shadow project, but there's some good stuff in there regardless.


 

good stuff indeed:
 

E[rrolson]: ...We just recently shifted the focus of Shadow because we all felt that had already been explored and a lot of the technology and know-how we had developed for Shadow had found its way into the mainline. There're a lot of really high-performance materials in the mainline now, as well, so we didn't feel that was enough of a differentiation. Now our mandate is almost more of an aesthetic exploration. Pushing the boundaries of what Stone Island can be. Recently, there's been a lot of work in knitwear, and a lot of work in graphics, graphical applications and that kind of thing, which we're continuing for the next summer and next winter. We're in the middle of next winter right now.

N[omad]: Can you expand on the graphics part a bit?

E: Without giving anything away? Using graphical applications as part of the fabric development process. So, instead of just printing something on, we're corroding it out. We're doing what's called a reverse colour process, where you have a fabric that starts out basically black, and then on top of that we'll print a graphic, like a silkscreen, also in black, so you can't really see it. Then we'll corrode the fabric, and where the print is not, all the black, the fabric dye, gets eaten away and you're left with the shadow of the printed graphic. It's inside the material, though. It's got a dimension to it. You'll see that in Spring/Summer that'll deliver in a couple months.

Then we've taken that and pushed it again another level further for next winter. That's really, really interesting. And, again, that's the exterior of the fabric that looks like a rubber but is actually a laminate. And it's also waterproof, breathable, the whole thing. The last reason you'd buy that jacket, though, is that it's waterproof and breathable. The aesthetics are so far out and so interesting that you don't even... It's not even worth mentioning...

Arc'teryx s14: fifty shades of grey.

 

 

Sure there will be a lot of nice greys but the colour theme for Veilance SS14 is supposedly inspired by springtime in the Arctic.

That sounds awesome. I was referring to mainline arc 14 though. Their obsession with greys is reaching new heights.

Any of you bring dopp kits to work? I'm looking for something a bit more compact and of more durable materials than my giant, leather beater. (lol.)

Check out jack spade, there are some nice used ones on ebay, I want to say they're ballistic nylon, and they last forever.

 

I'm also a big fan of Killspencer, they just dropped a new nylon and suede collection that's pretty sick.

      Putting this thing up, since I'm not wearing it, and it deserves just that.
      This jacket is, as far as i can tell, a very limited production by Sakuto Motoike, son of leather leather sculptor Hideo Motoike from back in 08, when he did a line of very aggressive leatherwear that's quite counter to the americana (i presume) he does now. Line is now defunct.
      Cows leather, silver bone buttons and cotton inners. Not sure about the sleve lining, but i assume it's cupro or something along those lines.
      Bought it of the man who runs the CCP gallery http://theofficegallery.com on Cypress. It was from his private collection.
      Retail price was 4000 euro for him, back when he bought it, though i don't remember where.
      Worn very sparsely (say once a year) by me.
      Asking price right now is 2500 euro, but offers are welcome.

      "Discolourations" from the dying process. Unique in that way.

      Will take more pictures for serious buyers and answer questions to the best of my ability.
      From the same maker, but quite a bit later and in a different style period.
      Size 3 desert boots, from before they started doing the more clunky look of the goodyear welt. Used quite a bit and rubbersoled a few times. Heel also rebuild a few times. No laces. Made of one piece of leather (tongue excluded).
      Paid 600 usd for them back in the days, but it was including a very difficult shipping route (they didn't sell to people who weren't in store to try them)
