Spring hoodies and sweatshirts sound great.
This is the same fabric as last time, and same as the sweat knickers? What colors can he swing?
Somewhat interested, but only after buying every feasibly color of bamboo tees.
It will be the same fit as the 2.0 Lounge Pants. The color will be over dyed and the fabric will be different. He didnt give a limit for color.
Are we talking about the same zipper + button closure? I'm more of a fan of a pull-up elastic waist on that style of trouser, although the last run of lounge pants was pretty rad.
Fingers crossed for bamboo / sorona u-necks or scoop necks in the near future.
I'm definitely in for lounge pants. I'm really interested in the bamboo/sorona terry sweats Mauro mentioned here at some point. I've been meaning to email asking about those.
@notwithit - I'm with you on the scoop/u neck tees.
I think notwithit and I can cover whatever minimums are necessary for these. Sure would beat cutting the ribbing out of V-necks, or paying way more for a worse tee with BLK DNM / Wang.
I'll put myself as a strong maybe for the lounge pants, particularly if they're summerweight and in black/neutrals (olive, gray, etc). I wear my sweat knickers all the time when it's a bit cooler, and I've been looking for another pair of light casual pants...something like Geller's flight/lounge pants.
Though I'm supposed to be saving for this mythical leather jacket...
He didnt specify if it was zipper and button but I agree with you, I would prefer the pull up elastic. Also color wise I personally want something neutral.
I'd be looking for something pretty neutral on the color as well. A light heather grey or a faded navy would be good for me.
What's the cost of the lounge pants?
I think I paid like $130 for sweat knickers back in the day (as a member). Full length pants maybe a bit more? But a different material and factory could change everything.
I favor the button/zip fly vs full elastic myself but I'm only a "maybe". I don't know how they could be made of bamboo/sorona without looking like genie pants but damn would they be comfortable.
I still beat the shit out of my WvG sorona tees. I would buy 10+ with a slight U neck.
Re: genie pants, with a slim enough cut, I'm hoping they would look a lot like Geller's flight pants, except a bit more fabrick-y (because they'd be a knit not a weave). (Similar and even a bit slimmer) The genie-ness of a lot of nontraditional sweatpants (including stuff like linen as well) is more often from the cut than the fabric itself. Keep the thighs under control and add a nice taper and they can be really solid and versatile...I never had the full-length WvG sweatpants, but my knickers nailed the cut.
First one just looks like sweatpants to me, but the second looks pretty cool (including the color). I would also be down for a slightly shorter inseam (lower-mid calf). I like my sweat knickers a lot, but they're borderline too short to me, with the cuff barely below my knee.
I also wish they were less hippy. Actually I've had that issue with other WvG pants. The taper from hips to waist is too strong for my body, and I imagine for many others with small waists.
I'm personally hoping to hear about Spring outerwear. A while back Mauro had mentioned a rain coat was in the works.
