Yeah, same here.

No idea what I'm going to wear. I'm thinking black chino joggers, sneakers and edgy t-shirts to get me through until I can crack out the hardshell in winter.

>>8941606
>>8941609
Yeah, there's a huge overlap imo. I hate when people criticise techwear for being unrealistic and wannabe futuristic, meanwhile they wear 50s inspired workwear fits to college and office jobs. I like techwear because it represents and matches our time and culture more than most styles.
>>
>>8941713
>I like techwear because it represents and matches our time and culture more than most styles.
I think that's pretty damn narrow way to look at techwear. Techwear /= monochrome waterproof ninja outifts, I consider plenty of hiking and other /out/ brands to be techwear since they are clothing with focus on functionality and protecting you from weather.
>>
>>8941053

A lot of brands do similar hooded stretch fleeces. You should be able to find one cheaper.

i saw some jacked asian dude with a white singlet with the sides almost totally cut out, super baggy neon shorts and big ass nike high tops (maybe force commanders?), and a mohawk/mullet hybrid dyed bright purple. looked very cyberpunk and cool for summer

teechwear is about functionality and eventually aesthetics if you are into /fa/shion.
So this might be "cool" but it has nothing to do with techwear because it's not particularely functional.

this image perfectly describes the ignorance and futility that encompasses techwear

i see way too much of this shit. just because youre wearing a slim compact all black silhouette with a single water resistant jacket doesnt mean what youre wearing is at all suitable for techwear

what pants?

Why does this style need to justify itself when everyone else can walk around in their workwear/dadcore/preppy/streetwear fits without question? Even though most people here aren't dads, labourers, Ivy League or rappers?

I think we just need to start embracing 'techninja' as a label, even if it sounds ridiculous, so the function police can stop getting butthurt every time we post inspo that's not full goretex.

Also, the assumption that if you're wearing one piece of waterproof clothing, then the whole fit needs to be waterproof is stupid. For a lot of people, a waterproof jacket feels adequate.

Tech (inspired by technical clothing) + ninja (from gothninja, urban aesthetic, heavy use of dark monochrome clothing)

Thank you Mutt. I see you actually posting inspo everywhere.

Inspo's great, but what about a little discussion (rather than arguing over semantics)? I'm still waiting on this:
>>8942995
For real, I'm in need of some opinions and a couple new shirts
>>
>>8944100
And you'd stay to your own thread instead of bombing techwear threads with irrelevant bullshit? Sure, do it.
>>
>>8943733
I'd love that fit, except for those shoes.

Fuck those shoes. They ruin the entire fit.

I hate the look, i hate how the orange is just slightly off from her jacket and bag, I hate that weird accent near the toes.

I don't care if they're the best hiking shoes in the world, fuck em.

>>8944294
For some reason it's a rule with boots that if they make great hiking boots then they need to cover them with obnoxious colours in random places

The only reason I can think of is for visibility, but that ain't even hivis. They wouldn't be able to find you in a pile of leaves.

It's because it's the "look" for all those brands.

Holy shit this thread got long fast. For reference, I'm the guy who was answering a bunch of questions with long posts last thread, and I'll get to the leftovers in a sec.

Thanks to Mutt and everyone who posted all the great inspo, too. Probably about to save half the images ITT. Pic is Undercover F/W '09, "Earmuff Maniac."

Leggings could make perfect sense if it's not super cold. If you're active, even just hiking, you need to vent heat, and a Gore-Tex jacket without pit zips isn't going to do a great job of that.

Anyway, this is all immaterial, because if anyone had bothered doing a wee bit of research instead of mouthing off, simple GIS would've brought you this:

>Our final stop that rainy Saturday before returning to Seattle was an impromptu hike to Franklin Falls. As the hike was unplanned, we were completely unprepared for the snow; never before had I wished for snowshoes so profoundly and never before had eight miles been so far.

http://www.keithtio.com/franklin-falls/

So, like, it's just a sick fit someone involved felt the need to kvetch about later and so doesn't need you to do it for them.

And guys, can we just stop engaging with the "that's not techwear" shit? It's not worth it. It derails threads and brings the level of thinking down to theirs, which is barely thinking at all. It's the same rubric-based habit of thought as a dull and eager to please wannabe-gunner in high school or a freshman comp class. Think about the rules, not the subject. And when a peer passes over a paper that actually searches out into the world he smothers it in red wax.

>trendwhores

Though I will say to this: why are you even thinking about those people? You're not doing large scale sociology or cultural theory, you're not in the industry, you're just a singular person trying to get dressed. What do they have to do with you? I can promise you I don't think about them, or you, when I'm putting on clothes.

*Who thinks about


And, this goes to everyone, if you want to see something different ITT or anywhere, contribute! We probably want to see *your* inspo, and anyway people have even asked for it ITT. Why do you think I always put a ton of effort into techwear threads? It's not just Internet addiction, or the satisfactions of casual research and thinking and words, or the debatably altruistic satisfactions of being helpful. It's because I figured out a long time ago that you have to create the kind of cultural space you want, that you reap just what you sow. In everything.

Lou Reed is techwear, guys!

I think some etymology will actually help clear things up some.

First, the defenders of this stuff as "aesthetic" are so much more deeply right than just being right about liking stuff because of how it looks being valid. The origin of "aesthetic" is in the Greek "αἰσθάνομαι," to perceive, sense, feel. And that's what clothes are about, the experience of wearing them, how it feels (in every way, emotionally, social/ietaly, physically) to wear them.

Second, look at "tech-" itself. It's actually sort of mindblowing - it comes from Proto-Indo-European "teks-", the craft of weaving and fabricating, the same place we get "textile" and "texture." When it got down to Greek, it meant skill and craft more broadly.

So what we end up with in "techwear" is either clothing woven with skill (lol) or clothing having to do with skill, as the style or aesthetic/experience of clothing having to do with skill.

The schism here, I think, is in what relationship people want their clothes to have with skill; more specifically, where they see the skill as being located.

Me, and I think most of the people drawn to these threads? We see the skill as being located in persons, in ourselves, in what we do in the clothes. Techwear is clothing for/that enables/that stays out of the way of the exercise of skill, the experience of having skill: in movement, in living, in doing and accomplishing and play and work. The relationship we want is a harmonization, between our desires and striving and having a body and our garments.

The that's-not-techwear crowd wants to locate the skill in the clothing itself. The relationship they want is an additive one: they want their garments to give them skills they don't have.

You could say they have a better claim on the word (because of the original connection of teks- with weaving), but that's completely disconnected from usage. The only skill commercially available clothes (unless is someone selling exoskeletons yet?) can give you is weather resistance, in the form of shells and insulators, which explains why that supremely boring and not-often-necessary quality is the only damn thing they ever want to talk about.

And besides, fuck it, we were here first, we outnumber them, etc. etc. I don't see the need for it to be that adversarial, or adversarial *at all*, but they're the ones always on the attack and making this out to be a zero sum game over space in a very tiny tent.

Womenswear tech inspo is usually so much better than the standard menswear stuff. Less posey and they usually look like they're enjoying themselves more than the stonefaced men. It sucks there's just so much less of it, which tbh is why the OP image probably got posted, anyway.

>What's a good site where I can sort of "one-stop shop" techwear stuff?
There isn't one, unless someone else knows one. I'll post a list of relevant boutiques later.
