Rockywoods have a crazy selection of rare fabrics. Lots of military contract overruns by tweave and schoeller, sometimes in crazy patterns. Lots of one-off laminate overruns too. Good intl shipping, will send samples.

as anyone sewn tyvek? How is it to work with? My intentions are to make a couple small pouches / folios. Maybe a tote. 

 

Im a bit of a materials newb, if I was to experiment and  make a tote, what would be a affordable material to get started on? Something that can withstand some rain.

 

Rip stop nylon? 

 

Application intent would be grocery bag / daily junk sack. 

 

Does anyone have any inspo on tech totes?

The SD Traveller stuff could be good. It's very basic, but made from cuben fiber and some lined with RF shielding

one of my artdirectors has exactly what you are looking for. it's portfolio, ring bound on one side, velcro closing flap on the other with tote bag handles. made from tyvek (hard one / not the ueg one). l guess its no different to sewing paper.

After talking to Danii for abit I got convinced to post something that I finished not too long ago. (Full time Lurker here)

  • (CP1 / Grid Gaiter) constructed and put together by me.
  • Objective: was to refine / add on anything that I believed could have been possible on the CP1.
  • Materials used can be found on the first post.
  • Reference are all used from google search because
  • I do not own the CP1
  • I took up sewing a year ago in a casual self-taught manner
  • Overall I hope to encourage a few to go make something

(Thanks for the _Coded font suggestion Danii)

 

Untitled-3_zpsdv5lcckx.jpg

Overview

_ CP1 can be worn in 3 different adjustments to adapt with layering underneath the cloak to unrestricted motion.

(Worn in 1st adjustment (Closest to the body) Sorry did not have photos with more layering.

 

Untitled-2_zpssxhzmfft.jpg

_ Gaiter mode added: Velcro adjustment for fit

_Additional labeling and Sound Force Lock can be added

( I tried to add a hood at first and did not turn out so well so I scrapped it and done this instead)

 

Untitled-4_zpsldlfs1w3.jpg

_Mil Spec Webbing masked around the interope to strengthen it and to keep it's structure straight.

(to stop it from flapping around so much when moving the bag infront and the back.)

_D Ring added to make separation and closure of interope with ease.

(It just seems easier to  have a hold on it. to keep the flow of unzip / zip  steady using (one hand to keep the garment straight as you unzip it.)

_ A Pocket can be located to the right side to the all other accessories (Gaiter/ Gloves/ etc)

(Who does not like pockets right?

 

Things I wanted to add but unsure of

_ an additional pocket on the right chest

_ add a Interope on left side

_ add a Pocket at the center like the J36

AOKU:202004 (TROUSER TENSION DEVICE)

aka belt MK–1 "NEED-NEW-BELT-FAST"

 

I was never fan of the heavy standard issue cobra belt because it's heavy and installation more painful than Windows 3.11 to NT upgrade. I made myself a 40mm webbing belt with simple plastic buckle, patch array, D-ring and tonal reflective parts. Currently being tested for ultimate user experience, before product launch at AOKU SURPLUS OUTPUT STORE.

      Hi,
      I wanted to share my experience with Spare jeans, a Montreal MTM jeans/jackets, family-owned, operation. I had the pleasure to meet with Prospero Rey, his wife and his kid. I'm in the process of having a jean made, so expect some updates to this post.
      First let's get the price out of the way: 200CAD + taxes for a custom pair of jeans. Very reasonable for what you get IMO.
      He only uses Japanese denim, from Kaihara, Kuroki and Nihon menpu.
      He only has a few rolls available but can order about anything from those mills, as long as he feels he can use the whole fabric roll for other customers (so probably not ultra-heavyweight, ultra-neppy or very special denim). He can only order 59 yards roll and doesn't want to waste anything.
      He doesn't seem like a fabric nut and has a very small selection in the shop, which seems fair considering the size of the operation. On the other end, he seems extremely detail-oriented on the making itself.
      He uses old sewing machines, a Mitsubishi for the chain stitches (he is looking at getting a Union Special).
      Talking with him was a pleasure, and I thought I'd give him a try and report back. I'm passionate about clothing, and wear a mix of sartorially inspired outfits, but also like to venture into workwear from time to time. I'm already familiar with high-end Japanese denim (either because I could see them first hand or try them on, or knowledge gathered from the internet) and own a few quality jeans (a Momotaro, a Blackhorselane, a couple of nudies).
      My idea was a pair of jeans inspired by vintage levis (1947). I'm not a repro fanatic, even though I like vintage-inspired clothing, so I didn't want a perfect repro (although I'm sure you could have one made if that's your thing).
      I went with a fairly high rise, straight leg fit, using a Kaihara 14.5oz denim. I chose no pattern on the pockets, copper rivets (hidden on the back pockets), button fly, striped cotton half pocket lining in the back pockets, classic white Japanese organic cotton pocket bags at the front and classic gold stitching.
      Nothing fancy, something simple and easy to wear. He showed me some pairs he made with flat felling instead of lock stitching along the inside leg seam. Everything was very clean and well made. He also showed me some denim jackets and cinch back jeans with external suspender buttons.
      It started with trying on a pair of try on pants. He didn't have any 30 sizes left so you will see me wearing a 31 on the pictures, hence the not so perfect fit. It was already quite good though and we only had to make minor adjustments to the fit. I, unfortunately, didn't take enough pictures of what he can do on the sample jeans he showed me. Some stuff is pretty funky but those are customer's demands.
      I hope this will catch your interest and will update with more pics from the making (he will send me a video) and from the finished product.
      Thanks for reading!

    • By the-intern
      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!

      Hey, I've created this topis to have a conversation Guys what is your biggest issue with techwear and why ? (personal stories, unpleasant experaince, things that you dislike about techwear in general)
      Let's start with me.
      My biggest issue with techwear is it's realy hard to find nice jacket that will be affordable and still will look sick (not like standard north face).
