>every techwear fit ever features "runners" you can't actually run with glued together by children in china
>vans are the biggest crime you can commit
I don't understand this shit sometimes.
Let me rephrase that
>wearing runners you aren't supposed to use for running in a tech fit
I mean to be honest I'm no better, shoes for techy fits is the hardest part easily, but seeing nothing but sneakers not actually made for running or really anything but for wearing in tech fits bothers the shit out of me. But then to me techwear is about the actual functionality first and the aesthetic after that.
I don't have a lot of money to spend on clothing. I really need new pants though that'll work with a pair of all black qasa. I like military inspired designs, I'm considering just getting some tacticool pants and tucking these into some nice socks. Should I cop?
This shit doesn't look good on lanklets. Most lanklets aren't very physically adept either so they don't need tech/activewear clothing.
As for it being tryhard, that's pretty subjective. If you dress like a Ozark hillbilly even jeans and a button shirt would look tryhard. It looks pretty relaxed to me apart from the mostly all black looks.
love techwear pieces & garments but feel like these threads lack a lot of real discussion and so many fits are completely derivative in terms of the silhouette, footwear, composition - like one cool kid of the lunch table gives his ok on a pair of shoes then the other kids get mom to buy qasas.
love the approach of arc'teryx and their veilance diffusion line in terms of just presenting the garments with no pretense and not engaging in runway shows, more of an industrial approach which is fitting with their values as a brand, same can be said for stone island, c.p. company
some solid new(ish) tech oriented brands. for the most part have unpretentious presentation, most of it totally suitable for office wear - most business oriented techwear that I can think of http://www.indochino.com/collection/suits
http://makersandriders.com/ , Levi Commuter line and others in the US are doing a lot of this but with an emphasis on urban commuting/bicycling. https://www.isaora.com/ - crossover here with other activewear and then outdoor clothing brands which have an emphasis on tech
worth checking out outdoor apparel outlets. military techwear is also a thing with arc'teryx having LEAF which is a diffusion line for law enforcement/armed forces, http://www.cryeprecision.com/ , otte gear, massif, nike sfbs etc - tho hard to incorporate without looking like you're trying to be an operator. http://endlessammo.com/shop/ , maharishi & others use some military stylings mixed with more streetwear
