Greetings Folks! And welcome to the 30-day DIY Techwear Challenge.
My school and industry mentors have challenged me with the task of trying to create a new product - from scratch - everyday - for 30 days...
I'm a second year Student of Fashion Design - studying in the city of Vancouver. Since September I've been interning at a local research and design firm to gain exposure to technical fashion design, construction techniques, and the real-world process behind bringing wild ideas to life...
The studio where I intern is very tight-lipped about their outputs and involvements, however I am allowed to say that they have been quietly responsible for many of the innovations and products seen across the market - some of which I see posted quite regularly in fits around the community. My roll is still at the utmost bottom of the ladder (see:gopher), however my mentors are incredibly supportive in including me in and teaching me the in-and-outs of the nuances fashion design.
To be honest I'm a bit overwhelmed by the idea of trying to create 30x products from scratch, I've never done anything quite like this before... I'm going to give it my best shot to not only come up with a new product everyday, but also document every aspect of the patterning, construction, materials selection, etc. all the way through to a finished product.
I'm taking this online in hopes that of getting feedback/suggestions/criticisms as to what I should construct each day, at this point I've only a very vague plot of where to begin and what to make. Its my hope that I can share with the community a behind-the-scenes look into the production of the products we all love, while being able to experiment with new ideas we'd like to see but don't yet exist.
My obsession with techwear has become clinical at this point, made worse by the simple fact that I'm a broke student very much unable to afford the level of craftsmanship in my attire which has come to haunt me. To try and fix this I've been saving every penny I can since this 30-day challenge was presented to me last November. I'm happy to say -with the support of my friends and family- I've been able to put together a small pot of funds that I can put towards financing 30-days of techwear design.
At the end of this project, I'd like to be able to assemble the 30-day log and the products created into a portfolio which I can use to find a job. I'm still very new to this but it's clear to me that technical apparel and accessories design is where I want to focus my ambitions and career. With any luck this project will be an appealing application for a design position with one of the larger industry players.
The 30-day countdown begins!

[FS] Rare deadstock 60s JSB Winter Jeans NWT + Bay Icon Jeans 31/36 + Foot Patrol x Nike Air Stab US9.5By sinjo
Two unique jeans and a unique pair of sneakers for sale:
1. Rare vintage Belgian JSB Winter Jeans, new with tags. Has a sort of fleece fabric (Moleskin according to the tag) on the inside to keep you warm during the winter, hence the name of the model.
From the 60s (although notice the tag on the back pocket is different from those in the link). Very cool style, pics:
European size 43 (which would convert to about 27"/28"), measurements:
Waist: 37 cm (~14.5")
Inseam: 71.5 cm (~28")
Leg opening: 18.2 cm (~7.2")
Front rise: 32 cm (~12.6")
Back rise: 35.5 cm (~14")
Thigh: 28 cm (~11")
$75/â‚¬65 (make me an offer)
2. Barely worn Swedish Bay Icon Jeans, no washes or soaks, just too tight for me. Apparently the brand does not exist anymore, these were bought around 2006, hard to come by now. More info on the brand. Pics:
Notice some fade marks across the fabric from storage and it is missing the lower button for some reason (does not change the fit).
Size 31/36, measurements:
Waist: 42.5 cm (~16.7")
Inseam: 87.5 cm (~34.4")
Leg opening: 17.5 cm (~6.9")
Front rise: 24 cm (~9.4")
Back rise: 34.7 cm (~13.7")
Thigh: 28.8 cm (~11.3")
$40/â‚¬35 (make me an offer)
3. Foot Patrol x Nike Air Stab #2 US9.5. Unique release from 2006, does not come with original box, just the shoes as is (can send them in another Nike box, and double boxed on request). Notice there is cracking around the air unit and throughout the side, which is a flaw on most Air Stabs. Fitpic from the internet:
$75/â‚¬65 (make me an offer)
I really have no idea what these items are worth so make me an offer. I am located in the Netherlands but willing to ship worldwide, I accept PayPal or bank transfer (easy and free for Europeans). Send me a message if you have any questions so we can work it out.
edit: Nike Air Stab added
