Any suggestions on a tech-ish blazer suitable for indoor use (not insulated)? In other words, looking mostly for the specific look rather than technical features, but figured I'd ask here any way.

Something along the lines of Veilance, but their blazers are a bit too flimsy for my taste.

The Alchemy equipment blazer looks nice but I'm not sure if its more for outdoor use

 

still looking for suggestions

That's a shame, Boris needs to be taken to one side and gently talked to, still he's there making clothing and I'm here not, so at least he's doing his thing and I should sew my lips together!

as far as I know he doesn't design any of the 11 line, which explains why it's so different from his main line...

It still bears his name, so I think he has a say on what goes in the collection, even though he doesn't design it personally. I was a big fan of BBS, but what's going down with 11 is hugely detriemental to the entire BBS brand image. The first collection was quite promising but it went downhill from there - we keep seeing the same parka pattern after XXX seasons, just with ugly ass marihuana drawings this time.

Not going to lie, I've looked at that a few times (It's saved in my bookmarks) and wondered how cool I'd feel dressed like Jensen

SRULI RECHT DESIGNS GROUNDBREAKING LEATHER AT ECCO

"1) How did the idea for Dyneema® Leather come up?

It all began with a pair of gloves in a skiing store in Steamboat, Colorado early 2014. These gloves didn’t’ fit in this place… they were a-temporal. It’s like they had been designed in an alternate timeline and somehow fell back into our own. I traced the designer, couldn’t help myself. Found him, demanded friendship, and being Canadian, he obliged my advances.

Conroy Nachtigall had been designing with Arc’teryx and Veilance up until then and we began throwing around ideas for advanced material concepts and applications..."

3) What possibilities does this new material open for designers?

None, cause DSM(dyneema manufacturer) will not respond to their numerous emails, not even calling the dutch facilty will help. We will just promise to get in touch with them and then don't reply, when they mail again we will just tell them we need to go for a fair and we will again contact them afterwards. But we really want to keep it for ourselves.

also wondering what they wanted to prove with the lame cgi video

Those are some tight-fitting arms in that video. Combined with the helmet he looks like an ant.

I remember seeing the "transparent leather" some time ago which actually looked quite nice, at least some of the jackets did. Was getting a (tiny)bit of SI vibes. Wonder what happened to that.. (not sure if this has been posted before)

Oh yes, they made another (lame) video for it:

the copy/tone of that interview and video is cringe as fuck but the idea of dyneema bonded leather is cool and i really like the aesthetics of both jacket and duffle.

That video looks how a 13 year old would imagine interpretative dance, after hearing only the definition and a brief explanation of interpretative dance, to be.

the process for designing the Advanced Apparel Exploration collection starts with an in-depth study of data Nike has collected from various athletes

Special focus was placed on modern urban environments, from the subway and the street to the office and the club

computational designers to transform these body maps into a data set, which was fed through the company's knitting machines

 

no wonder these pieces look like they were designed by committee

some of the front pockets look like they took a research on grailed instead of bodymapping.

anyone knows if the brown/melange are the only clrways? (they would seriously miss out if they did not do black)

if you mix all the colours you get brown. any color you eat it turns brown. it's the most elemental color of of them all, also I bet it's everyone's favorite one.

I find the concept interesting, in the fact that it was based on data collected. Will reserve judgement on the garments until I am able to view them fully, pref in person.

I am waiting on technology that enable a user to scan them selves and have the manufacturer taking the data and producing garments that tailor the bespoke garment, it's only a matter of time, I'm 100% sure it's happening soon.

      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.
