    "My favorite color is blue, what size should I wear?" Bruh, l'm not one to snap on people on a forum but you're so low effort I hope someone negative reps you to prevent you from buying on these forums. Your laziness aside, which ACG bottoms? The wide legged ones or the skinny ones? The ones without stretch or with? The pants are gigantic and there is a small exchange, I don't know, ~4–5 pages back about this. Basically, you're sizing super/ultra wide Acronym pants on your height. Some people are 6'5"/196cm+ wearing small pants sizes for waist fit and they'll prolly need size L P23/P30 for height and normative fit. If you're intending to buy $1600+ pants and deprive more deserving community members of these pantaloons, at least go back a few pages. Finally, I'm going to assume you're a hypebeast manlet so you should go XS.

    Been waiting a while and I was finally able to get some time to do this. It's cool seeing the differences between generations of these models and how they've improved (and sometimes even areas where they don't). But basically it's just plain fun to nerd out. Differences in the in the sleeve patterns. The e-J1a is a size L and the J1ts-s is an XL for reference. You'll notice how the e-j1a actually has a baggier sleeve despite being a smaller size. They have a really similar shape which is a nice carry over from one iteration to the next. Of course, the pocket addition is definitely one of the more noticeable changes. I really like seeing the differences between how the underarm was patterned. It's a little hard to see but the e-j1a was a lot simpler than the j1ts-s. This is one of my favorite parts of the jacket because it's so functional. It's a noticeable different when you're wearing the jacket and you can see how the jacket is pulling as you move your arms around. The short sleeve is also constructed differently - the e-j1a is literally a short sleeve wrapped around the longer sleeve while the j1ts-s is patterned and sewn into the longer sleeve. Here's a shot of the gravity pockets of the j1ts-s and the e-j1a. It's kind of hard to see but the e-j1a is completely hidden and you can only access it from the cuff. The j1ts-s' pocket placement is a little weird imo because when your arms are at your side they warp the fabric a little around the forearm (because of the stiffness of the zipper) and it ends up looking a little weird. I was waiting for the laundry machine to rinse out any leftover detergent and I realized that I could throw in the j47a-gt for a comparison as well. Sorry for the dark images! Here are some shots of the underarm and of the shoulder. The e-j1a and j1ts-s have really simple shoulder lines but the j47a does something it a little differently. I think of the zippered versions of the gravity pockets I prefer the placement of the j47a the most - it's closer to the back of the forearm so it doesn't mess with the shape of the sleeve too much. But sometimes when I'm walking the zipper tab flips up and down as it catches the side seam of the jacket. So functionally, I think I prefer the hidden gravity pockets of the e-j1a because it's the least obtrusive. These are just some shots of some fun details that I really like on the e-j1a. The flak pocket is so over the top and definitely makes it the most used pocket on the entire jacket. I think there are technically four pockets in that area - main flak pocket, phone pocket, open side entry pocket (don't know how else to describe this one), and another side entry pocket with a zipper. Also the webbing with slits cut into it for your headphones (which I never use because it's such a hassle to thread them through).

    Happy new year to all denim fetishists out there!

    Been enjoying everyone's updates, sorry for not posting, not too many exciting shots to share. Been busy with various stuff, but also enjoying those crisp early mornings. THis photo is of the pooch in a particular point in Greenwich park, where there's a number of Anglo Saxon burial mounds. In cold weather they often look markedly different from the surrounding ground - the psychic energy of the ancient folk lurking below? It's a great location - from here you can see modern skyscrapers, and the 17th century Queens House, while just further down is the site of the main Roman temple in the area. we had a dry January - until last Friday, which is Burns night, when one reads the poetry of the Scottish poet, and eats haggis with tatties and neeps - mashed potato and swede. Always a glorious time. I paired mine with Laphroaig. The winter for me was a time for de-cluttering, so I've been selling stuff on eBay for the last three months at least. Including in what's gone so far is a 28mm VC Leica lens, Hofner Club 50 guitar, Couesnon alto sax, light fittings, vinyl 45s, my 555 '55, King Crimson and George Harrison CDs (nearly £200 for those alone) and other random items. The premise was to cut down on stuff and get what I have working; which meant , for instance, I got my Heuer Carrera fully serviced, and had my Jazzmaster restored. I think I mentioned earlier, it turned out it's quite a rare guitar, with an ash body, in a blonde finish, which is the earliest custom colour. I have it sitting in the living room now, and obviously i'm churning out some top riffs. It's great, all the pleasure of new stuff with none of the guilt. I also have a lovely reissue case, swapped with Erk for some Big E and LVC stuff. There's the usual TBC quick update. Pockets are going now. It's looking more and more likely that from this fall I'll be starting a new job where, for the first time in 30 years, I won't be wearing denim every day. This therefore means this is my last chance to win a denim contest, hence I shall be using sandpaper, power tools, blowtorches etc to make sure I beat Volvo to the prize.

    More denim- not sure how much longer they’ll last. . . Easily one of my favorite pairs I’ve owned.

    And while I’m here... heres my 2002xx I’ve had for two years. Jacket season is extremely short in New Orleans, so this spends more time in the closet than not. The banner denim is perfect for a type II and in my humble opinion this is one of the best denim jackets on the market.

    That ‘unwelcoming’ community has helped multiple new members over the last couple weeks identify potential fake ACR pieces, not to mention field questions on gear use and fits. If your ego wasn’t shoved so far up your orifice of choice you’d realize that @TEKsevenZERO‘s comment wasn’t directed at you but at the flippers trying to cash in old gear at new prices.

    So awhile ago I posted my Roy collection, figured I would post my Ooe collection as well. Excuse the poor lighting, the sun is directly shining on my balcony so lots of shadows. Only Ooe items not photographed are my double twist denim chore coat and the overlock natural tee. The most worn are my OA02XX's and the 1702XX contest jeans. I'm wanting to wear the DB01's and Saddle Pants more, but they both need hemmed. From back row: OA02XX, 1702XX. Middle row: Saddle Pants, DB01. Front: Boss Pants. OA02XX patch and hem: 1702XX patch and hem: Saddle Pants patch and hem: DB01 patch and hem: Boss Pants back and hem: And then just a few random shots:

    So- here’s a big photo dump. Everything from some recent denim photos to wine, camping, hiking, surfing, New York, Los Angeles and everything in between. Jeans are beginning to hold on for dear life. Threads are beginning to become bare but I’m loving their current color and patina.

    Gave my saddle pants another wash, think this brings it up to 6 or 7 washes now. The denim is fading really beautifully and they’re definitely my most comfortable pair of jeans. Patch faded pretty quickly and now there’s only a faint trace of what was on there. Some really good vertical falling appearing on the thighs and some good puckering on the pocket. The pockets took a little bit of getting used to but I really like them now, also these pocket bags are deeeeeep.

    Shit quality but here's a few snaps after I gave them the second wash this weekend. Will probably be less wear time for a while now that the cold is creeping in.

    How about we collectively agree not to post any more J1A-GT WTBs until after the next restock. Or ever.

    Bla-bla-bla, Subnet was closed due to success. It was not so difficult to drop a few words to E or M back in 2016 to clarify why it was happened. For sure, they could say you few common words about situation or didn't say true reason but I've got what I've got and it was enough for me and absolutely accessibly: Maybe I'm too old-school for using email.
