Thanks but I looking for headphones—not earbuds—preferably an over-ear closed pair.

Not sure it will be specific enough but I always check head-fi.org for info on any headphone purchases I make. They have a very comprehensive list of equipment and I'm sure there's something helpful on there.

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.

Some insight in the interview above.

 

I'd also guess that it's just way easier to market and sell a product geared towards "urban / city living" (which everyone can relate to) as opposed to outdoors which is a more niche market. Also sounds like Parker had his sights on Errolson to begin with, so that might have played a part as well.

Anyone able to recommend a reasonably priced tech blazer? The Veilance blazer is a little out of my price range for this time of year.

There is one from isaora that's decently priced, but depending on your taste might not look great. https://www.isaora.com/products/tech-3l-sportcoat

There is also a more traditional blazer from outlier, but its a couple hundred more making it nearly the same price range as the veilance ones. http://shop.outlier.cc/shop/retail/6030blazer.html

There's a couple used on Grailed right now, there's also a few at various places on steep clearance. Yoox.com had one, last time I looked.

Accept no substitutes, just prowl for a used one. Shouldn't be more than a couple hundred bucks and you'll end up happier than with one of those cheaper brands :)

Yeah, honestly Veilance stuff is just amazing and there isn't really a substitute.

Would someone be willing to tell me if they stumble across the Nike ACG cargos in XS? I actually prefer the navy ones but they're sold out.

 

Because they're rad as fuck

Can anyone share their thoughts on the Veilance Nomin bag? Thinking about getting one but probably won't use it for travelling as there is no hip or chest strap and I'm not even sure if I need a daily commuter/book bag at this point since I'm not even going to school anymore.

 

The straps look really thin. How well do they handle heavier loads and well does the bag stay on you while you move?

There's a pair of the cargos in black in medium up on grailed for retail. Too bad they're not a L, although 44cm waist is pretty close to a large. Anyone that has these can you comment on the sizing?

Boooo... Nike acg holster shirt is bullshit. Pocket doesn't fit an iPhone 6, what the fuck?

Fit and articulation is actually excellent... So conflicted >:|

I have the large. I can take measurements later today. They fit a little slimmer than other Nike large.
