Sorry guys. The hosting site seems to be having problems with an influx of traffic for some reason. Seems they're working on it.

Jesterrp, looks like there's a full set of Phily mags up on YJP if you've got the spare cash. I have a feeling it's going to end for quite a bit, though.

These may already be posted in here somewhere, but if not, I figure they'd be appreciated here.

Had my eyes on it already, thanks for the heads up though. Got it for 11k, more than OK price to be honest.

Can you elaborate on the stretching? How do you stretch your tees and how much length do you gain from it?

I don't really do it with tees no more coz I got good tall tees now. I still do it with sweatshirts, depends on the shirt (raglan shoulders are best) but can get 5 to 10cm more length usually without shape distortion.

I just wash em with tons of fabric softner then put on wet and gently stretch down the hem evenly all the way around. Then I just put em on a hanger and let em hang dry. As I said it's risky with prints, coz they can crack, some don't but most do.

Works on shirts too:


Sleeves were a bit short and is gained them a few CMs, not loads, but enough.

No, just way to small in the waist unfortunately. Fit a LOT smaller than the BDU's i own. Measurements weren't given so it was a bit of a gamble anyways, shit happens.

yeah taps sizing you never know. I got a few pairs of Xray helicrews and they fit bigger than Xray BDUs tho, this is with the velcro waist fully let out too.

True. These are the Helicrews with buttons instead of velcro.
Got a Vote Taps hoody in today which is also a bit too short, gonna try stretching it out. Ever tried stretching printed hoodies?

Gonna try it out anyways, fingers crossed. EDIT: Tried it, think i got some length out of it, no cracking visible (yet?). Was wondering if it stays stretched? And is it perhaps useful to do it a couple of times?

Can't believe i never seen this (the taps boxlogo) until a couple of days ago.. Crazy.

Getting frustrated by the fact that i still haven't come across another w)taps x porter ALICE pack, starting to think that i might have to drop that 35k..

Would've put it in posts from other forums etc..
That game just looks cliche and childish to me, I'll stick to counter strike.

The 'costumes' look good though. As pointed out on sufu the Russian-communist-tyrant-overlord is wearing one of their capes which I always imagined on some cycling hipster in Amsterdam whilst raining not some space marine.

Edit: The amount of over-verbage here is equaled by how over designed that trailer was.
