Hey guys, long-time lurker here. Like many of you I am super particular about t-shirts, particularly when it comes to hand-feel, and wanted to see what brands people are grabbing base layers from. I was getting mine from Nemen, but they've started using more branding, which is a deal-breaker. Ideally I would like something that is 100% mercerized cotton, like the Acronym s10-c. I just took a gamble on a John Elliot washed tee that looks like it might be alright, but I'm not a huge fan of the spilt hem - I can post some thoughts on it when it comes in. Any thoughts or recs would be apprciated.

 

I've switched to only merino tees, due to being able to wear them multiple times with no smell. My favorite are Outlier's runweights, followed by ultrafines.

Outlier t's have an excellently sized sleeves as well, no bagging or tenting for un-built arms. Seconding recommendation

I'd also recommend the ultrafines but they are drying up on stock due to supply chain issues. Oliver's Apparel has 100% merino tees at a much better price.

 

Speaking of recs, does anyone know of any good full-zip hoodies for  <=$150? (Preferably with some good specs.).

If you're on a budget; uniqlo or champion reverse weave (not sure if that comes in full zip), if you're after quality; a really good brand would be Reigning Champ

How good is really good you might ask? Good enough that they base their brand around their hoodies and its also what set them off into popularity. Shoulders are raglan cut in the front and regular cut at the back for arm movement

Of course this is for conventional cotton hoodies though, other materials I'm not too sure on for where to find

Any suggestions for waterproof/repellent shoes? There's a lot of waterproof gear around, but the shoes still seem to be the weakest point - or maybe some spray/way to waterproofing regular shoes?

for me, techwear shoes are more about the aesthetics (either minimalist or futuristic) than added function per se. 

 

especially since the more functional shoes (look at the techwear shoe thread) tend to be aesthetically lacking.

If it wasn't obvious from the title and introduction, he's a rapper, lol. No need to care, but I guess the OP thought it was cool because he's wearing the Acronym Prestos?

Maybe try finding last season's ACG Cargos, though they're not really black.

Try the sisp batavia or comfort cargos on sale. Honestly, the cargo is my favorite everyday pant. Lot of freedom in the top block with a heavy taper and articulated knees. Slight stretch and svelte lines!

Outlier just released the Strongworks. Durable, tough wearing, more 'slacks' / 'dress' pant pocketing instead of the jean dungaree pockets. Not sure if that's what you'd want considering you're asking about cargos but also chinos...

How many "influences" can you find in this ATTEMPT ('to emulate at least six different designers?') 2016 lookbook?  

Jeez, why the Hypebeast even cover these parasites....
