The new Enfin Leve collection came out - in my opinion not always a fully techwear-style brand but their new steel mesh items and especially acronym style modular pouches certainly are... considering grabbing a few just due to the novelty of fabric.

And their kangaroo leather molle webbed bag looks like a more luxurious aoku musette bag (with a more luxurious price tag at 1000 eurobux)

really curious about that thermaltech fabric. like what does steel cloth feel like? wish i could see it in person

seconded... I'm hoping to secure a sample soon! Wild stuff. There's a solar activated variety with interesting thermal properties too.

 

Shame on Efin Leve for the BLATENT Aoku rip offs however... :( (@danii wanna pick a fight? 'Tis fine Scottish weather for it on my end of the wire!)

Coan & Kenaf seeds jacket : "This jacket was created by FINAL HOME and Naohiro Ukawa as an effort towards designing a "Utopia." The patch holds corn and kenaf seeds. The idea behind this design is to rip the patch apart and plant the seeds to grow crops to prevent food shortage in cases of terrorist attacks, war or earthquake disaster."


So I unknowingly purchased this jacket recently. Only way I found out was because I was curious as to why the god damn patch had something hard and round inside it! Anyway needless to say I was pleasantly surprised.

This is a close up pic of the said patch. I was surprised customs didn't seize my jacket or anything but I suppose the seeds are long dead by now. Tempted to get a seam ripper and get them out but it would taint the narrative!

If anybody has any idea what the top two lines say let me know. I suspect it just says Ukawa Naohiro in an esoteric type though.

brand is mentioned pretty sparingly here but does anyone have anything good/bad/mediocre to say about http://www.4dimensionapparel.com

have glanced at some coats in person briefly in taipei but didn't get a chance to try anything on. might go get stuff on sale if anyone has any good impressions.

that steel mesh thing was done some time ago already and its qualities are pretty good. 

there is a label called circadian rythms in London ran by a young kid who will deffo have something to say in the next coming few years. 

they started doing clothing and other media now - one jacket in the capsule is made entirely out of that.

I got the ultra-flat waistpack if anyone has any questions.

Isn't that also the same material that the one off Colette x Acronym jacket was made of? I've been trying to get some samples of thermaltech for a bit but their support hasn't been super responsive.

Wow that Circadian-Rythms stuff is really impressive! Amazing multimedia as well. Thank you for mentioning it! Glad to have discovered them just now!

somehow ended up browsing back to 2012 in this thread. suprised how much things have changed for techwear. fun to see the musings on the increased appeal of acr an av while not knowing what's coming down the road. lots of good discussion from members i completely forgot about. definitelty another era altogether.

@Inkinsurgent - I actually got goosebumps from your comment... This thread was really among the first places I encountered techwear, long before even knowing what superfuture was... Its really great to hear someone vocalize the value of the discourse that's gone on here. Scrolling through all 250some pages (at the time) of this thread in a single day was what I'll call retrospectively my "techwear 101" introduction. Really wish I had of known about this world sooner and could have been present to share in the reindeer games!

Review of Montura's Shakedry Flyaway Anorak (there's also a Flyaway Jacket)

IMG_2553.jpg

5wU7l1r.jpgVvIJ75M.jpg

 

these shakedry garments ticks a lot of my boxes: straight hem, elastic cuffs, hooded, subtle (unfamiliar) branding.

If someone could make a shakedry jacket that packs that as small/flat as a wallet and could fit in a pants pocket/ on a belt loop it could be game-changer for urban wardrobe. 

IMG_2234.jpg

 

also special shoutout to that montura hood, perhaps the best I've ever had on a rain jacket. Perfect fit, perfect visibility, perfect protection. It's so simple yet effective especially compared to the complicated solutions some other brands (see Outlier's evolution below) have been engineering recently

Here are some images of the hood. The blog SuE linked seems to have trouble with some images.

The Montura hood construction reminds me of a wetsuit hood:

It's a good idea, but I feel like the Montura hood could have a longer visor to keep rain out of your eyes. I usually wear a cap underneath most rainshell hoods for this reason.

 

And re: Outlier. Sometimes I feel they're innovating for the sake of innovation, but stuff like the ratchet cuffs on their jackets needs to go. I guess the designers might be viewing it as "signature hardware" but in reality they're cumbersome and everyone worries about long-term durability.

Thank fuck no-one measures against the gold standard anymore! Hahaha

      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)
