Any minimalist wireless headphones that would fit in an urban techwear wardrobe?

There are a number of levels of Gore-Tex, the top being pro-shell, which is mentioned. I assume ACG is constructed of lower-tier fabric, and although all Gore-Tex garments need approval by the company to ensure they won't leak outright and diminish the brand, the quality of construction between a made in China Nike piece and a German-made Acronym piece or Canadian Veilance jacket will be significant.

 

There are pro-shell jackets out there that cost under £200. Both Nike and Adidas have used pro-shell in the past. Not sure how to get confirmation on the exact Gore-Tex material on the ACG jacket. But from what I have heard, folk are mighty impressed with them so I wouldn't be surprised if it was pro-shell.

I use Jaybird BlueBuds X's for my workouts and around town. Bluetooth's not the best as you probably know, but it gets the job done without cable hassles. I've come to really appreciate them.

If you want to watch me go through my sneaker rotation and generally have nothing to do with techware other than the 12 days a year that it's appropriate to wear anything that isn't shorts in this tropical Australian climate you can always follow @mkyt3

Was in Niketown London and messed around with the 2 in 1 Goretex Jacket. The goretex used for those is definitely not the Goretex Pro used in Acronym. Was wearing the J27-GT then, so I could make a pretty accurate comparison. The shell of the ACG goretex is more flimsy and paper-like. The hood itself is heavier than the rest of the jacket. Compared to the Acronym, which could hold it's shape pretty well. The inner down is pretty well constructed though, double zips and keep you really warm.(was sweating slightly taking the jacket on and off in the store)

OK thanks for clarifying. There is also the issue of face fabrics to complicate the issue - and an area where I think Arc'teryx excels in innovating.

 

As for ACG, I can't get behind the branding. I also liked the focus better when it was on outdoor apparel. Why does it have to be 'urban'? If you design a garment that works in the woods (and subtract the superfluous ornamentation that broadcasts that intention), it'll work in the city too. Cities are nature.

      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.

      Notice the spots here. A few more on the other side. Were there when i got it. Doesn't do anything negative to the look.

      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)

      Cedar wood shoe trees I'll throw in with the shoes for an ekstra 30 euro.
      Again, I'll add extra photos if wanted.
