Why do i have to repeat this every fucking thread

One piece of techwear IS NOT GOING TO MAKE YOU LOOK LIKE A NINJA COSPLAYER. Their model pics are their runways so obviously it's going to look obnoxious when you're having a whole fit of soley ACR. If you really want to play it safe just buy clothes from Outlier

there really shouldnt be a topic/post about this every single time, do people put no thought into how a piece would look amongst their current wardrobe?
>>
>>10632627
i respectfully dont agree with this
you only pull off some of the more dramatic techwear pieces if you commit to the look
trying to wear veilance with a pair of khakis and a charcoal baselayer and new balances just looks like dadcore crap
you can get technical performance wearing a full hiking outfit from a northface catalogue, but it wont look fashionable. neither will mix and matching jeans and mall brand shit with 1 or 2 tech pieces.

for me, techwear is a style with established aesthetic tropes. if you're just throwing a shell over your casual mall brand outfit, its not techwear imo
>>
>>10632434
Are you serious? What's the private sale?
I've been eyeing an Align shell from there for weeks; it's a goal techwear jacket for me but I'm in college and can't afford it at the $500 it's at, an extra 40% off could've done it for me...

Does anybody know a good alternative for the North Face Etip gloves? I read some bad reviews about the touch function failing after a couple of weeks, the little grip triangles falling off pretty quickly and you'll still have cold hands with temperatures around 0 celcius.
>>
>>10635680

honestly my plan was to get a black pair of the uniqlo gloves and cut the index finger and thumb tip off. i can confirm the marmot version of the conductive tip gloves suck and don't work. I don't know if under armor offers something similar, but I think having the two fingers cut off is the most functional without looking too edgy.

I like their pants/merino shirts/socks. Everything else feels lacking.
Would totally cop the Ultrahigh backpack/duffle if it weren't for the shitty rolltop.

also, you can just buy the conductive thread (dont remember the actual name for it) and stitch a bit on to your gloves

By not wearing strictly avant-garde high techwear like Acronym?
Techwear is about having technical fabrics that function in your environment
Wearing a rain jacket and boots cause it's raining is practical but an easy example of this style
Making it more 'stylish', possibly by wearing a bunch of black, is up to you the wearer

Check CIVILIZED or Black Rabbit.

First one is japanese brand, that makes some technical garments varying from stuff that kinda resembles drkshdw to "normie looking" clothes.

Second one has that acrnm vibe to it, but looks more military-based, and not so Deus-ex-cosplay tier.

I work in the fashion industry (I design, tailor, and sew),
and I have a functionalist techwear project I'm working on
(innovative tailoring, innovative textiles, dynamically knitted
fabrics (loose / tight where it's supposed to be so) taped seams,
welded non-woven textiles, so on).

This entire thread makes me cringe.

Why have we come to accept that if something is functional,
it has to follow a certain aesthetic / visual language that all
fucking brands use? It's the same fucking arbitrary design decision
that dictates that all smartphones must look like bars of fucking soap.
Why?! Why does anyone who want to wear functional clothes has
to look like they're going to war?
Why does it have to SCREAM "dystopia"?
It's common sense that the military is the main leading force in
technological advancements in nearly every field, but how is it
that of all industries, it's FASHION that cannot prescind from the
aesthetics of technical clothing that it inherits from the military?

The fashion industry thinks that they are the most forward-thinking
industry, but ironically, it's the most tech illiterate one of them all.
And this is proven by the simple fact that every time it has something
to do with "tech", it turns out whack, tacky, and fucking autistic,
which just further intensifies the technophobia that is all too fucking popular
among the common folk.

>oh, all you want is to stay dry? sure thing, senpai, which look is it going to be then? The mountain climber, or the school shooter?
>you want pants you can run in? not a problem. take these, I'm sure you like looking like a space-age runner who was left behind.

That is Linda tricky. Most of the time techwear is funktion over form and menswear vice versa. Bexley Enfields are really great for menswear fits but couldn't picture them working on a techwear fit. I've seen really great techwear fits with combat boots, like the Bundeswehr Pilotenstiefel. If I were you I would cop both, since the Enfields only cost 139€ and the Pilotenstiefel 29,95€

Question, What would be an appropriate piece of head warming gear besides a beanie that would work with tech wear? i have this look but dress warm because i work overnight in a warehouse and it gets fucking cold because its not insulated.


tech wear is supposed to be comfort , function and a bit of fashion right?

help me out
>>
>>10641016
buy a large sqaure of wool

wear it like a keffiyah

at the moment im just wearing my hood with my beanie and the beanie doesnt really show. but i guess i just could think of an alternative.

>>10641015
So is this what BBS 11 uses? I know Acronym uses this stuff but it goes back to my point that while 11 is an okay clothing line, its not techwear.
>>
>>10641022
what? wearing it as a keffyih is functional and fashionable

-covers the head
-covers the mouth
-can easily uncover mouth area while keeping head covered

literally the best option
>>
The problem with the online techwear community is that there is a large portion of insecure older dudes who have to try and rationalize the "functionality" of the garments and cannot admit that it's possible to appreciate clothing for its aesthetic qualities. A pair of stretch Levi's and a vinyl poncho will get you 90% of the functionality of top end techwear clothing. I roll my eyes everytime I read some rant by a 30 year old office worker geek about how "ninjas" are ruining techwear.
>>
>>10641027
lol idk if i could pull it off, ill give it a shot.
>>
>>10641048
>problem with techwear community
>le aesthetics > "functionality"

You do understand both are important in good techwear right? Just techwear itself, more than any other type of fashion, is founded on the prinicpal that functional clothes don't have to look like stretch levis and a rain poncho.

How are you liking the pants? Is it comfy? How's the pockets and range of movement
>>
>>10644837

I love them. The pockets are fantastic, and combined with the stretch fabric it makes it very comfortable and functional.

In terms of fit it's a bit looser than I would like, but still slim by normie standards. I'm 5'10" and 150 lbs. It's still the best fit that can be achieved without tailoring, probably because of the fabric. The butt doesn't flare out after a while like with raw denim.

The only other Outlier stuff I own is the 4 season OGs, which are terrible. The vertical pockets flare out and makes the hips look awful. It's supposed to resemble office pants for old people, but the light airy fabric does not work in that cut. The climbers, however, have none of these problems and are awesome. I would highly recommend them.

I go bouldering in these with stuff in my pockets, so that's as good as it gets in terms of function.

In the future I'll probably try the ladies slim dungarees, because it's closest to the fit I want without tailoring.

The tricky part is that the fabric means that it's pretty consistent in terms of the way it drapes (ie no mad stacks) and it's also different in the way it looks and feels, which is not always desirable depending on what look you're going for. It's not something that can be seen easily in pictures; you really have to be wearing it. What's certain is it will have a completely opposite aesthetic to waxed denim even if they're trying to do similar things functionally. So while they're beyond reproach functionally, you might be disappointed if you want them to fit some aesthetic niche. I'm still experimenting with this myself so I can't really say more.

I hate that you can't usually try these clothes on locally. there's a smaller customer base and they seem to be mostly upper middle class software engineers slash coffee slobs who are less picky about fit anyway, which is weird because they're buying from pretentious cyclists with a penchant for photography and whose models I swear have their clothes pinned in every shot.

I find that the main character of Watch Dogs: "Aiden Pearce" Is very tech-wear. He fits the look and nails the usage, in the modern semi-cyberpunk version of Chicago he lives in.

The "Alone" or the "Cyberpunk" outfit in particular are the most techwear.

And yet it lacks the details and quality.

i dont know how messenger bags are a part of techwear. you can't run with them, climb with them or have anywhere near the utility a backpack or even a fanny pack delivers

looks stupid to me. better as laptop bags for pudgy office workers in $250 sears suits
>>
>>10657449
Agreed, and i'm an ACR fanboy. The only reasoning for it I can make is that it fits with the whole 'modular' idea in ACR jackets (they slide in from the side/back to remain hidden) and have sort of a 'on the go' thing where you can just swing it forward whenever you want. I asked around if messengers are good for your posture and i basically got feedback saying "no" from everyone.
>>
>>10657518
they should just do a backpack with modular pockets at the front that you can customise with webbing. then you can have quick access to small items in the front and the utility of a backpack AND can actually be active while wearing it
>>
>>10657531
I believe Errolson takes most of his designs for bagjack and incorporates them into ACR, and bagjack does have backpacks so we might get it sooner or later
>>
>>10657449
The 3A-1/3A3TS makes sense for Interlops.

1. You don't have to take your bag off before putting on/taking off your jacket.
2. Straps won't wear down the DWR on the shoulders of the Gore-tex.

The bigger bags are cool, but they're not that different from regular Bagjack bags.
>>
>>10654751
Wow I really disagree.

>>10657449
You're confusing dumb shoulderbags marketd to officefags as messenger bags with actual messenger bags. Messenger bags have a stabilizer strap that holds them secure so you can move freely with them.

Compared to backpacks, they're less good for you back but offer faster access and usually a little better ventilation.

It is so easy to criticize something but if you offer nothing in return for your meaningless "revelations", what is the point?

There is always an acceptance and continuation of trends especially in the context of what you're talking abt.

>why does techwear often times look militaristic?
Because it is a silhouette and aesthetic that has proved itself time and again throughout history. There is much more research that has gone into this than you probably think, its not just a situation of "we'll keep it the same because that's how its always been done".

If you want innovation and practicality(which Techwear will always be rooted in) you will have to compromise.

Innovation is good, but to disregard what has been done in the past just for the sake of innovation is pointless. That seems to be what you are trying to do. It's fun to live in a conceptual world where that works, but in reality close the the body/slim fitting clothing is what you want in harsh conditions and its what you want when you are moving a lot.

I actually feel that many techwear brands have pushed this combination of functionality and innovation to its logical extremes. Look at any mountaineering company, their cuts are utilitarian, made to do what they will be bought for. The modern trend of "techwear" has brought innovation to that, and removed it slightly from the "outdoors" setting and placed it in a much more urbanized environment. Again I really feel there is only so much they can do in terms of coming up with a brand new look when you are confined to such already strict "rules" in the aesthetic. Because techwear revolves so much around functionality you have entire silhouettes and fits of garments that go completely out the window because when it comes down to it, they are not functional.

So I guess what I'm trying to say is, stop being such a pretentious fag about it, someone(who is much more adept) has thought about it way more than you have
