1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    So many snaps/pockets/zippers...




    At the other end of the spectrum, in keeping with the bulletproof vest theme of the last post (but somewhat OT since it's mostly down filled/padded stuff)

    This post is ancient sorry, but do you have any more info on these? Google turns up nothing unless I'm doing something wrong.

    This one ?

    The pics are from a Japanese webstore (here) but the vests are from last winter's collection so they're probably long gone. Research released a similar design without down filling for Spring/Summer 2013 (see my earlier post on this page) so maybe it'll be brought back for Fall/Winter 2013 too (although from a quick look at the official website, it doesn't appear to be part of the lineup).

    Rakuten and YJP auction are probably your best bets.


    Here's another FW version

    Thanks - those are super great. Are there any US stockists for Mountain Research for current seasons?

    Garbstore is the only stockist outside of Japan that I know of but it's UK based and they don't seem to have any FW stuff yet.

    Mountain Research again


    Field vest SS13


    [​IMG][​IMG]

    [​IMG][​IMG]
    [​IMG][​IMG]

    with an unfortunate back pouch




    All those models are just glorified hunting vests/game bags though (the demimoore one is probably based on some vintage filson thing), just more streamlined and with better fabrics / colors

    Are you still getting the Bless one ? The lack of back pouch is a plus and the inside zipper is cool, my only fear is that it might be a bit too loose to be worn comfortably under a jacket (obvious solution being to start wearing looser jackets)



    More vintage c.1910 (possibley DIY ?)

    Sip, that one you just posted is really nice.

    I do want to get the Bless one, but I'm shelling out so much outfitting the new apartment that I'm not sure $600 on something that goofy is wise, especially when I could add that onto my couch budget.

    I think I'm mostly just hesitant because I'm not sure how to layer it with stuff I currently own. I think under the fuzzy Dana Lee teddy bear jacket would be good. what about under the light green junya jacket? that's loose in a way that would work. Maybe under camo APC jacket with a down vest over that. DOUBLE VEST. Maybe just straight up under a vest.

    I don't even know anymore!!! I want to sell everything and wear only damir doma and Ann D lows

    I've just been feeling disenchanted with clothes lately. This is the first thing I've gotten excited about in a while so maybe I should just go for it

    I feel you.
    I've been thinking about making my own version tbh. The design is basic enough, how difficult can it really be ? (overoptimism check). I feel this is the kind of garment that allows for a bit of amateurism since the fit, the way it drapes etc don't really factor into the equation.



    I like the way you think




    (Old Damir or new Damir ? !)

    probably aw11 was his last good collection, though there have been some nice pieces in the subsequent seasons

    in the context of this thread, i considered these two but decided they were not worth it for whatever reason. nice fabrics, especially the second, and surprisingly warm given how precious they appeared

    then he went fishing next
