I bought the track pants lol, I don't follow asap rocky though. The jp styling is really cool, plus they weren't that expensive bought off the nepenthes jp website

@Lorcan7 thanks for sharing. I'm very much looking forward to the SS18 collection.

I'm not sure what you mean by "that great". If you mean by some objective, but in this case, meaningless, measure of "quality", sure. But as an iconic piece of clothing, I would say that the old trefoil Adidas track pants are pretty great. Is this particular homage to them that great? I'd say that they were pretty cool. Great is probably overstating the case.
Meant the former. The old trefoil track pants came in standard poly, and it looks like that's what Needles is putting out as well. Yes, the Needles ones do come in an array of colors, but from what I can tell they haven't messed around that much with the materials, aside from the velour ones. Which I guess is par for the course for Needles. Design is good with Needles, they did widen the hem on theirs, they just don't play around with craftsmanship with these as much as I'd like. They're still very cool, don't get me wrong, but I would never pay what people are asking for them.

Crunchy granola. Looks like something a Phish head or wookie would wear to a festival.

Hey, long-time reader here, first-time poster. I recently decided to acquire the Needles tracksuit they have on Norse Store and I can't figure out what size I am. I bought S (I'm S in most brands) for both the jacket and the pants, but found that they were both kind of small, though technically they fit. So I bought M's thinking, like most Japanese brands I've encountered, they were undersized. I got the jacket last night and it feels oversized. I haven't received the pants yet, but I'm guessing they will be the same. So my question is, are the tracksuits supposed to fit small or large? I can't really decide which size looks better on me, though I think I'd prefer the M. Any help would be appreciated.

Difficult to advise without pictures, but I'd err on the looser fit.

Hey all. Selling this peaked lapel bdu jacket (tagged as medium, fits tts). Hit me up via pm if interested.

*Note: the fit pic is not of the actual jacket.

So I picked this Bedford up from fall 2013, nepenthes 25th anniversary edition. I think someone mentioned it was only sold out of nepenthes jp in the EG thread. The print is actually flipped on each panel, gives it a sort incongruence.
