Anybody have any experience with Haven pants? Been eyeing their Solo Pants (not sure though if this qualifies as Techwear) and would appreciate some feedback from someone who had the chance to check one out...

I have their Aviator Pants and have tried a couple tops and pants. Overall the quality is there, but some of the fits didn’t quite work for me. To me they feel like a next step from Wings+Horns, with more technical features and slightly more generous fits.
I am really happy with the Aviator Pants. The fit is a great relaxed cargo fit, the stotz fabric holds up great while being comfortable, and the pockets offer plenty of storage.
The solo pants have been done in a couple of different fabrics, I tried them in nylon taslan. They felt like a lightweight hiking pant, although the fit might be roomy to some coming from tapered pants. I’m not sure how much the dry skin will affect structure, but I believe they’re intended to “drape” more than other pants in the lineup.

Anyone know more on the Aitor Throup drop this Friday?

All I’ve gathered up is a release on Nifty Gateway on Friday @6.30/7pm ET, not sure if this is artwork only.

The hats look real cool on Lil Yin, Lil Yang and Good Ol’ Dom.

Got the veilance rhomb since two years and i have to say it's a great rain jacket for the warmer days of the year. Brought it to my recent trip to italy and always kept it for "emergency use" in my 3A-3TS which worked very good because its a. very lightweight and b. very packable. Waterproofness proved great to me so far. It's cut kind of doesn't work with layering because its cut too slim though.

@piece keeper I’ve had the Rhomb (SS19) and J63A-FO (FW18) since their releases and haven’t had any durability issues like some. Lot of people seem to complain it looks like a trash bag but irl it’s more leatherish. Online product shots make it appear smoother when it does have some  texture. I don’t necessarily baby either of them and though it’s not necessarily recommended I have worn bags w both. I try not to make that a habit but hasn't affected either thus far. As Dix mentioned the Rhomb is a perfect travel/emergency shell and performs well in warmer weather (still gets hot/clammy imo pushing 25+ Celsius). I keep mine packed in a pouch in my bike bag, would be nice if it packed into itself. You could try stuffing it into one of the hand pocket I suppose. It runs slim since it was made for “urban running” so it was one of the Veilance pieces I sized up on. The zipper isn’t waterproof so it can leak, same w the pocket seams on the J63A. Really only noticed this issue when biking in heavy rain not walking around casually. I’ve worn the rhomb hiking but would only recommend this for wide open trails, anything dense and brushy wouldn't risk it. Also don’t put any adhesive to it bc it will pull the face membrane away (pic from the Acr thread when the J63-PB first released showing this). One other thing is the feel of these jackets is much different bc the J63 is bonded to Power Grid Fleece so it feels much more substantial to the paper thing Rhomb. The J67-FO would be a closer Acr comparison.

Actually you can pack the rhomb into itself! Look into the right sidepocket and you will find a button on the inside of the hem. There is a hidden compartment which you can use to do this. As i find this a bit finnicky, i always just pack it into its own hood - less compression but much easier too handle and quicker to pack/unpack.

I remember I saw someone mention this then when I checked never saw it so thought they had meant pack into the hand pocket. Will likely just keep using the pouch, sounds less finicky and can use the loops to hang off a bag. Also get a little added protection when tossing it into bags w pens, pencils, knife or anything else w an edge it could catch on when putting in/out. Thanks for mentioning the snap, I know exactly where it is now lol.

V cool. I loved having those cuffs on my ski jackets. Everyone I know cut them off, so that’s nice they’re still there. Think the industry term was “wrist gaiters”.

      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.

      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)
