Thanks mate, yeah the 555-01. Only worn at weekends so took a while to stretch out but are perfect now. Can't see me needing any more jeans for a very long time but I am tempted by the 555 blk that are dropping.

I like milspex but hes getting a bit desperate and having to talk to and comment on himself cos nobody else does anymore, cos hes still wearing and posting pics of the same clothes since the day he joined.
To be honest, thinking on it, is he the only member who hasnt changed his wardrobe since the day he joined?

I say we just ignore him. It'll die down. Half of the shit he says is pointless anyways. I rather have him critiquing a fit than saying pointless shit like crime rates in Australia

I don't read anything from him if it's over a sentence long. He's not phelen mate.
Obviously I love humour. Troll or no troll it's a bit much.
Also phelen mate I don't think he's trolling.

length, shoulder, arm length (looks shorter here than it is because of the watch) as well as chest width are absolutely fine (zipped up as well) so why buy buy a bigger size which would cause the fit to be too loose? i like my clothes to be on point size wise most of the time.

i'm fine with your colour comment but i like it even though the black ans blue are more common.

I'll bite. The comments regarding the combination of the tiger camo shirt and the white bomber jacket are probably more to do with the mismatch of the aesthetics rather than the colours. The shirt has, obviously, a rough-and-rugged/hand-in-pocket military look, whereas the pristine white bomber is more fashion, especially when it's worn small.

Regarding the fit… As much as I miss the Our Legacy of old, they have developed quite a clear aesthetic for themselves, with loose fits, boxy shapes, plain cuts in interesting fabrics etc etc. When you wear it so small you kind of lose that, and it looks a bit tarty in a slim-fit fashion way.

beyondthepines wrote: really nice jacket imo and the fabric is far superior to the black and blue iteration of it even though i think all colours are nice.

Tyvek is most commonly used in envelopes and other wrappings. I remember American Apparel were among the first to use it in clothing. It has a very unusual feel to it that I personally like, though I wouldn;t call it comfortable and it has a tendency to get more and more creased and there's not much you can do about it. To say it's 'far superior' is a bit spurious, especially as the heavyweight nylon used in the blue and black versions is really very nice.
