>>9390641
well I guess everyone's definition of expensive differs
cause I honestly don't see myself spending $80 on a jacket (even though that's probably dirt cheap around here)
>>
>>9390658
If you think $80 is expensive I would advise you to get out and go to /mfa/ because they will teach you how to be cheap, not an insult, just /fa/ isnt really for poor people except for inspo
>>
>>9390658
>I honestly don't see myself spending $80 on a jacket
damn how poor are you?
and yeah, techwear is not for you. look into normcore.
>>
>>9390667
>>9390663
I have a part time job. I have money I guess I'm just cheap. Maybe if my music career takes off then I'll be more likely to drop money on clothes. Wish me luck
>>
>>9390686
dude you're cheap af

do you live in a warm climate or something? cause shit that protects you from harsh weather costs money and that's just what anoraks are designed to do
>>
>>9390404

>>
>>9390690

i have this jacket and i really like it
>>
>>9390698

yeah it's not cold or wet enough to justify it. the good stuff is very expensive.
>>
>>9390707
should I just stick to shopping at thrift stores?
>>
>>9390698
I mean I guess not, a lot of it is lightweight and comfortable enough and I wear similar shit in LA. But this thread is about anoraks, which are parkas, which you probably don't fucking want to be wearing in socal at any price.

it's just that it's called techwear because it's made to be functional, not fashionable. It costs money to make good clothing that keeps you warm and dry and doesn't break when you're doing weird shit out in the woods (and if it's not functional like that it's just really fancy high fashion that is at an even higher price point). You might want to look into "hardshell" jackets that are lightweight. No one will think you look weird but you're going to have to be willing to shell out some extra cash for anything that's more rainproof than a hoody.
>>
>>9390708
You need to figure out your what your needs and wants are on your own before you start asking /fa/ where you can find unreasonably cheap parkas to wear in San Diego.
>>
>>9390704
honestly they look nice and appear to fit well, but the material looks like it's really lustrous and shiny
>>
>>9390719
I want to be techwear, and I'm in los angeles

>>9390712
thanks for the explanation
I'll just stick to thrift stores
>>
>>9390686
>Music career
Bandcamp/Soundcloud link? I have a couple hours, I'll check your stuff out if you want
>>
>>9390431
huh, I can't find any anoraks on their site for some reason
>>
>>9390663
you're not looking for /mfa/ you're looking for frugalmalefashion or whatever it is.

>>

>>
>>9390663

>/fa/ isnt really for poor people

not really, for most aesthetics, it's mostly about the fit, you can get $20 jeans tailored and look good, especially since you can't see details of the material as easily from pictures

unfortunately technical clothing has higher material costs and lower volumes sold, so it tends to be more expensive

the other thing is, it costs $ to experiment / take risks and make mistakes clothing-wise. if you view clothing in terms of utility, dressing like your dad is very cost-effective.
>>
>>9390712
>it's made to be functional, not fashionable.

i think this is bullshit. techwear is clothing that's designed to look functional, first and foremost. the functional aesthetic is what differentiates it from regular clothing. naturally techwear ends up being functional, but functionality is not the primary goal, or we would buy hiking / outdoors gear w/o regard for looks and post on /out/ instead.

acronym et al have carried over the functional aesthetic to their marketing and entire brand image, to advance the aesthetic of form following function. but the way it looks is still paramount. it's more a case of contriving a function to justify a form.

that's not a bad thing -- fashion is about the aesthetic. seen another way: streetwear's function is to polarize onlookers, while techwear feigns disregard for them.

>>9390695
Nanamica I think
>>
>>9394666
Pls answer
>>
I'm thinking of the same thing OP. Except I don't even know what I'm looking for exactly. Any suggestions for raincoats that would look good with cuffed grey jeans and Doc Martens 1461s?

I'd like something a little on the longer side.
