last one is obsolete
good pics this time please
It'd be nice if we could discuss some of the philosophical and cultural aspects to this stuff without it devolving into a debate over the definition of "techwear."
hope outlier have some dope ebola proof fabrics in their next drop
Aight, have a good one. Do they fit TTS btw? Been putting off copping a pair discs for way too long now. Corks, Chang, Chalayans, Kiths man. They were all juicy as fuck.
no idea but from what I've heard puma shoes run narrow as fuck so you might have to size up a half or so. if they have a pair there I'll find out. they dont look bad without the dial either
>no anti-ebola™ materials
i think ill pass
I posted a Lululemon blazer in the last thread. Here's a fit pic for anyone interested.
Which model do you have?
I am looking for new beater x runners and have been eyeing the Trinomic Discs and Blazes for a while.
How comfy and durable are they?
Do the Outlier Merino shirts keep you cool? I cycle to work often and need something to keep cool as it's hot as balls where I live.
ive got the Merino sweat pants and that shirt.
I literally use that fit just for cycling
they GOAT even if expensive
can someone post some inspo of dress shirts + tech-y shoes like swift techs, furies, roshes, tubular, whatever the fuck else comes to mind
i'm thinking of copping some tech-y shoes but think they will look kind of dumb towards summer with collared shirts, which i tend to wear more when ti gets warmer
can someone kindly suggest a handful of techwear pants to cop for a starting point. I work at a performance clothing store, get all the jackets and what not cheap, but we don't carry any slimmer, functional pants. tl;dr pants pls
Probably eventually, but TBH I've been reading elsewhere for a while and need to catch up on OOO first.
15 GBP/$25 isn't bad at all for an academic book. I've paid more for fiction.
Well, what are you looking for in the pants, functionally and stylistically, and what's your budget?
Fuuka "streetwear inspo" or something like that - the joke line is that "streetwear is just dadcore with sneakers," which is all kinds of wrong but sometimes has a point.
This recent-ish thread seems like it might be especially useful to you.
Ah, so am I, but I'm so used to making notes in the margins that when I get a PDF I want to dig into I go through the hassle and cost of printing it out.
I love it but so much money over time, you're right. I'm shit at saving.
Acronym x Hyperstealth x DSM Diagon Alley F/W 2019 I[nvisibility]C[cloak]-CP2.
Not a bad call. Pretty much any insulator that fits under it you could use.
I don't know how warm flight jackets are, or how much space winds up under them on the body, but some current things I think would make good liners:
The Marmot is a bit of an outlier, but the combination of relative thinness, Polartec Alpha (more durable than most synthetic insulations, specifically designed to deal with varying activity levels without removing), and the hybrid construction that makes it almost like a second baselayer plus a vest seem potentially good for a liner.
You might also want to look at milsurp liners, even if there isn't one specifically for your jacket. (If there is, that's probably the best idea, just so it actually attaches.)
i just have seperate paper to make notes with page references
i find it's a lot easier to review reading that way anyway, rather than having it all scattered and crammed in the margins
that's like saying ivy league prep is 'just' boat shoes and striped ties
we wear clothes never in a mode of 'just' wearing clothes but as a manner of speaking in relation to life/society/culture
it is not really surprising that william gibson is such a big fan of acronym >>9026276 @greatdismal
Gibson and Errolson Hugh have a lot to do with each other, but neither of them have much to do with the contents of those linked pages. Certainly, neither of them are dystopians or transhumanists (as the word is now associated) or indeed particularly anti-capitalist.
what the fuck else are you wearing?
black is usually a better choice. my problem with less high end white materials is that they look cheaper and plastic-y sometimes, and that wil definitely pop out on the swift techs
also ultimately we are dealing with clothing on this board, which is in almost all regards and arch capitalist field. some exceptions but lmao
that just looks grumpy
yo more general thoughts on those comfy "utility" slacks in the sense that they are allegedly flexible and durable enoguh to jump run and climb in
soudns pretty gimmicky but if that's actually the case im into it. i hate that slacks are suck shitty pieces of clothing for doing anything other than walking and sitting
Im looking for slim fitting pants. pockets are nice. Black is nice. Functional materials- no cotton, less polyester. I just bought Icebreaker Field Pants- they're very ideal functionally, but don't come in black or have much fashion value. The best i've found were Outlier Climbers.
Budget- the cheaper the better but I'd be willing to pay 200+ for the right fit
Polyamide Fabrics mimic wools natural function- in those terms it's less gimmick and actually pretty decent- that said, smaller companies struggle with the breathability technology often. That said, I like where the linked ones are going, and the specs are right.
Here's some inspo. This is a knife from TAD gear circa 2006
decided to go with black, they look more tech to me and I've already experiment with white shoes and liked them less than my black ones.
you're cool dude I hope you succeed in all your endeavors, live it large and good
damn homie. thanks for being positive.
i'm thinking of copping some too but am not sure if i should cough up the ~$140 for swift tech discs.
I also kind of want reebok fury pumps.
cant decide which one i like better and how black to go with them, or if price point matters to me enough to choose one over the other.
unless if you know some brilliant way to cop for less.
no problem man
to be honest not really feeling the pumps, I like the disks better on the swift techs and the pumps have a bit too much branding
can't really help you with finding either for cheaper though, aside from religiously checking resale sites
that's a good point, the branding is a little too prominent with the pumps. i trawl ebay too much for cool sneakers. i gave up on the rafdidas hunt when i realized my other hobby would put too much of a hole in my bank account. i'm just a dingus.
anyway, how do the disks generally size, should i be wary of ordering my usual US size?
holy shit why do i actually like these shoes? whenever i see them in the huge variety of colors, i just think to myself
"this is evangelion the shoe what the fuck"
true, i'd much rather be trying to look deep and edgy with an emerson knife.
>tfw copped some maharishi shit a while back
>tfw not feeling it
just as there was an uneasy transition period between feudalism and capitalism, capitalism is itself an uneasy transition period to... something else?
and they want that transition to finish sooner rather than later.
levi's commuter -> outlier -> maharishi
[order of increasing price]
for those who think G-shock are chunky and unshapely check out the Citizen Ana-Digi's from way back when
pic related, it's mine ^_^
need some toast with that jelly
This isn't worth a thread.
What are Jubilee's sunglasses?
What is the style called, if at all?
Not too much into black anymore but I dig the use of Foamposites. Been saying that they've been underused in this context for a while. Good fit!
not quite. i think the real focus, especially in those articles, no matter ho wishy washy, is that of the self-consciousness of capitalism's demise. the knowledge that accelerationism it happening, in the sense that people come to understand Marx's dialectic shifts and know that the ultimate collapse of capitalism is inevitable, that self-awareness has a particular set of problems. it can lead to the state or capitalists behaving differently, and in this case, it leads to a very different set of aesthetics based on this convoluted period of post-industrial, post-internet angst.
i add post internet because most marxism honestly loses touch when it increases in tech level, so much marxist thought needs to be rebooted for this era, and a lot of accelerationists actually suck at this.
this is basically as ugly as IRL steampunk what the fuck man. it's kinda quirky but ugly
dude... offer up the ass first you fucking noob
those are pretty cool. out of curiosity what are your thoughts on Chrome bags?
this thread has gone pretty far and it was totally worth a thread
the buttons on that thing are really bad imo
>the buttons on that thing are really bad imo
how so? it's an old tried and true style of button placement
or do you mean you've handled them yourself and they fall apart easily
I'm going on a backpacking trip through southeast asia. What are some good techwear base layers to consider? I'm trying to decide between merrino and synthetics like uniqlo's airism. Airism tees seem better suited to the climate but looks terrible if worn on its own though.
Thanks for the info, I'm always looking for some good products out there regardless of the marketing. And alternatives to Outlier are always nice.
Add Makers + Riders to that list as well (pic unrelated)
As long as the fabric is thin, breathable, and dries quick. Doesn't really matter. It will be dank, humid, polluted, and it will probably rain a lot. Personally I would just bring or buy on-site, more than a few cheap shirts and switch between them
Oh and wear unbranded and unassuming shit cause you'll be an easy target for pickpockets and the like if you stand out they recognize the logo
wish i could pull the trigger this but im tying to save up
Yeah, I'm a fan of Makers+Riders too, but I didn't know if that would fall under the "performance menswear" theme. A few others to lookout for:
+Nau (probably could've gone with the menswear list)
Can anyone recommend any good tech boots. Have to be waterproof, and decently warm, but i can always wear wool socks or smthn if it gets too cold.
Also I'd prefer a slightly chunkier boot, over a slim one
I don't see it mentioned anywhere ever but Houdini has some dope pieces I've been drooling over but they are mostly out of my budget.
You should probably read more, the transition was a lot more complex than that.
Personally I think that capitalism by definition wont collapse for a long time and is still a pretty solid system. I do however expect a pretty abrupt and revolutionary series of changes away from monetary capitalism to a system based on human capital over the next 100 years or so. At that point I feel like transhumanist technology will make our understanding of human interaction so obsolete that the way in which we organize ourselves wont particularly matter.

What're some good fabrics I could use as the outer layer of making a jacket? I've been reverse engineering some acrynym stuff based on what I've seen on the internet (the TRUEST kind of hacker) and I think I've got the jacket sling figured out. I'm just not sure how they do the backpack under the pit zip and coming through the chest zip, and how they do the gravity pocket. Any acronym owners who could give me reference pics, or explain? I'm thinking of three potential jacket designs. one is a knee-length coat to be worn on its own, one is a normal jacket to be worn on its own in hotter months with the vents exposed OR worn under my thermoball in the winter, OR one that's the first jacket but it zips up to waist length somehow. I'm making my own because I'm too poor and I need a jacket that can specifically hold my surface pro on my person, no jacket thus far has had the pocket space AND breathability I require. Fabric reccommendations for lining and main fabric? For the surface pro pocket, should it be stealthy and interior, or should it be one of the chest flak pockets?
try trawling through the acronym thread on sufu. no one here owns acronym
"Technical clothing is any garment that, through advanced fabric, treatment, cut, or construction, provides a function beyond hiding nudity. Some older examples of technical clothing that you may recognize are, traditional or heritage garments like rubber boots and waxed jackets, and armed forces uniforms. Some newer examples are hiking gear and sports/athletic clothes. Techwear or Urban Techwear, is a subset of technical clothing with an aesthetic that is contemporary or futuristic, fashionable/stylish, and is designed specifically for your common city-dweller's day-to-day situations. "
From http://dressed-down.com/, which is a good overview as long as you don't take it all as some definitive taxonomy.
Unfortunately, I don't know much about the production side, so I can't really help you there.
IMHO though, I think the tablet pocket should be an interior one. Just because I would want it to be as far from potential rain as possible.
Repost this next techwear general. I can do some fabric schooling but this thread will probably be dead before I can.
It doesn't matter how far it is from rain as long as it's properly sealed, although an interior pocket is still an ace idea, simply because you're not going to be removing it outdoors (so, who cares if you have to open the jacket) most of the time and it gives you more design flexibility.
I wish Arc'teryx still had supplies on their Veillance F/W 13" mionn composite jacket...
Litteraly one of the best top tier stuff they've done so far.
IMO one of the best techwear jacket.
2014 they delivered only overpriced rubbish.
ok guys, finally getting some downtime
does anyone remember where i left off?
i would unbrand it, first, though...
eh, i'd still do it. but, of course, that's just me
vest version (could accent with black or gray sleeves and / or trousers)
If you're going backpacking look at actually /out/ brands. you can gearfag it up if you want. check out Patagonia, Arc'teryx, Black Diamond, Norrona. Uniqlo is the last place you want to go.
>Yeah, I'm a fan of Makers+Riders too, but I didn't know if that would fall under the "performance menswear" theme.
Well it fits with the urban techwear theme. Can't get any more urban than pants aimed at deskjob biker and courier crowd.
Curious about Outerboro, their pics look great and I'm looking at the Aegis cause I have a big phone to lug around. Can anybody comment on the quality, or how their pants compare with Outlier?
Might just be the color in the photo, but that jacket looks pretty thrift-tier. Pull pants further down b4 taking the pic to avoid knee boobs. Not digging the hair either, but whatever works for ya.
