    reedo could also check out uniqlo's new tech block stuff if he's trying to go techy without blowing bills before he knows if he likes it.

    There's plenty of mid level stuff that could work, you won't end up looking like a hovering scuba warrior of doom but maybe that's a good thing.



    sounds about right

    How I wish I had a moustache like that one so I could curl it between my thumbs while plotting machiavellian plans.

    I do this in hotel rooms when there are no fitness facilities, and when there is invariably insufficient equipment. You can do everything with dumbbells no more than 50 lbs, which is usually what hotel gyms go up to.

    The only thing that is hard to replicate is cardio. You actually need some space and or a treadmill/windjammer/Erg for this. Thinking of getting an Concepts2 erg for Christmas. There is nothing that works cardio and gives a decent start to a full body workout quite as efficiently.

    ibFuuma complains about fitness talk.

    I'll also mention Rick Owens before someone else does.

    Convict conditioning by Paul Wade or Never Gymless by Ross Enamait.

    Also, jump rope and kettlebells for stationary cardio workouts.

    So many good suggestions. I didn't know they discontinued BLK, really liked the jackets and gloves. Does anyone sell the BLK line this season?

    Not even sure when/where I'd wear this stuff, maybe out shopping on the weekends or something. Also, saw a du in a W+H cowichan sweater at brunch today, these sightings are rare in the PNW

    There's a couple BLK items from previous collections left here and there, mainly jp webstores obviously. Plus, you can always hunt down old stuff on y!jp and rakuten if you ever feel so inclined.

    The good news is that PNW weather is the perfect excuse for wearing that kind of acoutrement.

    Yea, I think tech ninja makes sense in a very urban or very natural environment (as a study in contrasts, I guess). The only members who really come close to this style on SF are RFX and snow, iirc. I'll check Rakuten now

    That rain collecting jacket w/ straw sipang posted awhile back was made for the PNW weather. Get on that reedo!
    Also, Undercover would be a good place to start. Always a healthy selection on yjp and sufu.

    I don't think we really have the same understanding of "tech ninja" though
