Ten C : The Emperor's New Clothes - Page 20

Don't need to own one to know they are over-hyped and over-priced and not really all that. Sure, the jackets look stylish, and the concept is a nice, but you're correct there are plenty of other brands out there offering far better quality and value for money

Tbh, you're buying the garments for the brand's design and unique tech fabric. It's basically some tech fabric that's designed for aging (aging tech fabric? I can't imagine it would look good) that has great water repellency but as with all coatings, it'll wear off eventually and you need to reapply it but by that time the jacket will look very aged. Someone should post a 1-2 year old picture of their jacket.

Just received Nikwax from STP. Will report on restoration effect.

So.... may I ask why you are in this thread..?

Good stuff! I would really like to see how it ages, it's hard to drop 1.5-2k on a jacket without knowing how it turns out, people are more careful about things that cost less, ex: ToJ jackets

Sorry if anyone's already mentioned this but have you seen how the new ten c rain parka's are identical to the cp company micro kei google jacket minus the googles. I'm gutted as have just seen the ten c in a dark blue colour and I prefer it to the olive/khaki colour that I'd purchased in the cp company jacket

I've since purchased the ten c rain parka. The style and cut are the same as the cp micro kei google jacket but the ten c's material is stiffer.
There is a slight smell that the ten c's have when there brand new but that has gone now. I smelt it straight away when I put the coat on. I think it must be the dying process or it could be the material.
The jackets fantastic, I love that almost industrial feel that this substantial jacket gives you. I'm looking forward to the material softening up a bit but it won't get any proper use till the weather changes abit
