    They have Ideal zips.



    Thanks Pistol. Just curious anyone know why they went away from riri zips which are suppose to be the best in the world?

    Cheaper? Honestly I've had both and haven't had a real serious problem with either - in actuality, I've had more 'isses' with RiRi zippers than any other zipper for pure anecdotal goodness. And it was brand new too - ended up selling an item because of it.

    It's not a deal breaker, it's actually a non-issue it's just an over-hyped part of the community 'riri zippers!!' but I do like the shape and look of tear drop riri's.

    Can we have a moratorium of complaining about the price of the sweat pants? They are obviously in a different league than Target (insert other cheap brands/stores) sweatpants. If you're interested in them and want them then they should be worth the price to you. Wings + Horns does a great job on all their sweats - it is a large part of every season from them. I keep seeing people "feeling silly" about the purchases they made, or "not justifying it." Most of the general population can't justify the price we pay for CP or Margiela sneaks, Japanese denim, and yes, sweat pants. If you are on this forum you should at least be able to entertain the idea that great sweats could cost $150. If you already bought them and love them, no need to feel bad about the money spent.
    I suppose you're right, but for whatever reason, we've all been trained to think that spending more than 20 bucks on loungewear is terribly wrong. In no way do I regret buying these, however. They're phenomenal and will be wearing them on a daily basis.

    ^ You'll be wearing them daily? [​IMG] I guess, to me, a pair of Alternative Apparel sweatpants are just as comfy, and I can buy 4-5 pairs in different colors very easily with almost the same fit. In the end I would wear them out of the house just as much as a pair from Wings + Horns (almost never) and so they accomplish the same feat (easy loungewear). Plus, I wouldn't worry about spilling salsa on a pair of $25 cotton sweatpants while I watch a game on TV like I would the W+H. To me it's the same as buying a pair of cashmere underwear - who the hell notices that kind of stuff? It makes it even worse that AA fleece is soft as shit, probably softer than the W+H pieces I've handled. Even so... I still kind of want a pair. Damnit.

    i felt this way before on other items, as well including hoodies ... w+h def rises above any typical hoodie made by sports brands, american A and alternative A, h&m, etc.

    I exaggerated a bit. When I have the choice, I will always be in sweats and a hoodie. I find myself at home working a lot these days, so when I'm not at school or my actual workplace, I'm just loungin. I'm rocking my wings sweats right now and loving it.
