Looking into getting some webbing for my own personal DIY and was wondering if you guys could provide some insight into what kind of webbing you guys like to use and why?

it's mostly personl preference, I prefer polyamide tight weaved webbing webbing, because of it's structure. I do not really care about breaking strengths, because I doubt they will ever matter.

AOKU 190807 is 110cm x 110cm DUAL FABRIC SHEMAG. It's composed from two triangles, STOTZ ETAPROOF (aka -S) and POLARTEC WINDPRO. When worn correctly, the waterproof eta fabric on the outside protects from wet weather, windpro on the inside is guaranteed to keep you warm. Diagonal seam is reinforced with grossgrain ribbon, which holds the funnel neck look and serves as simple locking mechanism.

There is single black on black logo tag on the left side. 

 

Available on the day of Raichu this december in AOKU STOREFRONT. More pics soon on my social media accounts.

This DIY was planned awhile back not maybe 4 to 5 months, but didn't have the time to get on with it until now

Thank both Kamikaze for the challenging Idea, and Jbob for shipping me his precious J36GT for this experiment.

I will not disclose any sources

Enjoy All!

J1a_C in 2 weeks maybe.... hope I got the time. Sorry JBob I am keeping this  J.K

 

Great craftsmanship here, very impressive stuff. Would love to see more original customizations in the future, maybe it's just me but I feel it is a bit of a disservice (to the original designer) to essentially recreate the expansion panel of the J43A-GT and add it onto other jackets? I can understand that you take on some of these projects as practice for your own cutting/sewing skills etc. but it would be cool to see some of your own designs (or ideas for customizing garments) come to life!

Either way, keep up the great work, looking forward to seeing how the J1A-C turns out.

Have an E-J23 (RAF) that I want to mod since I have to fix it anyways (due to another issue... so I might as well go all in!).

I want to make one of the sleeves (just half of it) detachable, so I can freely choose to give the jacket a similar look to the J36-GT (RAF) when I want to.

Thinking of an effective solution that wouldn't be too costly to implement... any recommendations? I'm thinking of adding snap button holes to the inner part of the edge of the half-sleeve (attached to the jacket), and snap buttons to the outside of the detachable half-sleeve (separated from the jacket). I'm thinking I may have to sew on additional fabric to the detachable half-sleeve and then add the snap buttons to make sure the length of the entire sleeve isn't altered when I put it together.

Can anyone think of an easier solution that's just as effective?

1- Sell it and buy a different jacket?

 

2- just cut the sleeves off and have a dope ass vest B)

 

3-buy a BLACK e-j23 in the same size and swap out the halves, so you have 2 half black, half raf j23! Share one with a friend  :o

Hi guys,

does anyone know if there is a place I can purchase these quick release fasteners that ACR uses in a quantity <10 that ships to US? I need 2-3 for a small project I am doing, but the only place I have found that has anything similar is here: http://www.fun-fabric.de/halli.php?020113_21255__Kurzwaren-Kleinteile---Zubehoer-besondere-Verschluesse-Taschen-Verschluss 

however, they only ship that product within the EU. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I'm sure someone here can EU-proxy for you (actually, there was someone who offered in the Acronym thread).

On that note, I'd like a few to mod some stuff I have. If anyone can proxy, please message me as well.

      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).
