No, I get that he needs a replacement. Someone also asked how it’s used... just trying to be helpful. 

 

Edit — I was actually responding more to @DavidMN‘s questions.

How sure are you that it doesn't use friction from the other ribbon to hold?

I have a pair and they don’t hold at all... unless mine don’t work properly?

Yea they don't really hold at all. We all know how the pull mechanism works, we're wondering about the concealed part that's hidden inside the waistband.

@X.bee understood. @DavidMN didn’t seem to know how it works functionally, I was responding to his questions and didn’t make that clear enough. 

All good, this was a needless detour. Continue on.

On the p17 the ribbon doesn’t have any sort of friction or stretch. It also isn’t really meant for holding the pants up, you need a belt. If you look at the old marketing pics you can see. 

Some of the newer oversized pants have friction locks for the ribbon to actually work as a belt. 

I figured as much, since the only people to use the ribbon to hold the pants up were retailers. Mothersite always had a belt.

I uploaded the video about AOKU (re-recording of the moscow presentation I did in the VERISIUM x ITEMS.MAGAZINE talk. Involves superfuture so I am shamelessly placing it here too.

Does anyone know of a source for the 20mm ladder locks used on the jacket slings? For that matter any leads on where to source a similar 3/4" or 20mm elastic webbing and the Olive Grosgrain that'd be mint. Trying to make a decent replica since Acr is evil and doesn't include a jacket sling with the AK models, but they do with the KM???

Unfortunately I have not seen the Duraflex Evil eye Tensionlock sold anywhere. Also you won't find exact same olive ribbon and elastic webbing, so I would suggest making a better version yourself. If you have someone who is Duraflex customer around he can ask for sample qty of the desired tensionlock.

YKK was not really willing to sell us less than 30000 back in the day (2016) someone was looking for them. On the other hand you might be lucky as I heard that there were few spotted in Russia (but not sure if the guy did not buy them all), as I was not interested in those I did no further investigation. They were also spotted on some chinese marketplaces after the DAF release.

it's around 50 cents but the shipping will be much much more.

Yep, this item in stock here, but only 25 mm and Olive version (shame they put only black version in the description).

Thanks to all for the leads, I'm hoping tri-point is feeling nice and wants to pass some my way... definitely seems like getting a nice copy is gonna be tough since I'm not gonna have Güth & Wolf mill some 3/8" nylon ribbon and there is nothing like the elastic I've seen on the market, such is life?

Also stoked on a new grocery tote I made and will post up soon, full Güth & Wolf and x42~

Also another nice supply source when it comes to Güth & Wolf webbing

Grocery bag~

If anyone ever does want to help orchestrate group purchasing of anything from tecsys, to XV 5230 buckles and beyond I'd always be down to take part (though of course logistics will be a nightmare)

Thank you for the kind words! Going to make some tweaks to get it to function a bit smoother, but with a month of use it's holding up well and can easily manage 24 beers, a few kilos of rice, and some snacks. Will update with more!

I shamelessly made a repro/alt 3A-2(TS) this weekend, nothing too special and not a lot of thought on my part, but sight unseen I tried to roughly duplicate the bag. This iteration instead has a TS inner belt as opposed to the pocket (didn't know the size or functionality of the pocket so I figured something modular would be easy and work well with keys, pens, knives and whatever else) ~sorry for my complete inability to do clean binding around the bends, I just don't have the skill nor the right sewing machine setup.

Hey everyone, always impressive works done here and lot of inspirations to try to make some stuffs !

I've tried to do a pattern for something looking like CP2 but with removable sleeves. I was trying yesterday to find a way to buy some Schoeller WB-400, but unavailable everywhere. On shelbyoutdoor, they sell a dryskin extreme but at 260g/m2 instead of 390g/M2, so 2/3 of the weight. 

Do you guys have any ideas where I can find this fabric, or at least something similar? I've looked on extremtextil, shelby, rocky but i'vent seen something which can match. Any ideas/recommendations ?

sounds like a fun project! also not too complicated, since the cp2 is basically a large rectangle with 2 holes for arms (with some fidlock hardware)

pretty sure wb-400 or an equivalent is available on extremtextil, on lunch break right now but shoot me a pm and i'll hit you with a link 2n

 

also headsup,  not sure if you've ever worked with a fabric thats 390 g/m2 but thats pretttty heavy and you'll have some pretty bulky seams.

250-300 would still have decent body while being much easier to work with

quarantined in new york so i made these pants over the weekend. will post more details soon, finish is pretty sloppy imo, but a fun opportunity to try out some dryskin. i was really into the new p35-ds trousers, but was reluctant to buy anything so this is the result, no idea what the pattern is like but these aim for a similar cut

Looking for a bit of advice if possible. Just received a pair of second hand Acronym Lunar Force 1. At the bottom of the zip, the connection from the toe box to the upper is on its last threads. I was thinking of using an adhesive to maybe help strengthen the joint around the area.

Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated. Much love.

      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 grey area studio
      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).
