    just got the j28 and the j16 today; a few immediate thoughts: j28: as was mentioned to me, the arms on the jacket are pretty wide/big while the shoulder/body fit how a medium generally fits. i haven't layered my j58 underneath it, but generally, i think i can overlook how they cut the arms on the jacket. the high neck stowaway hood is a nice touch. as with most acronym, i really like the amount of pockets on the jacket; one of which has a multi-level pocket similar to the j47a j16: cut is nice and doesn't suffer the same issue as the j28 with the arms. the silhouette is nice though can look a bit top heavy with the velcro shoulder pads, which i still don't understand the use case for them. the other thing missing is interops, not sure why it wasn't included. i've come to realize that one of my favorite acronym details is the neck button, which i use religiously on my other jackets without having to zip up. all in all, they're nice jackets that i'll keep, but not as good as the j47a and j43a, which are my favorites that i own.

    Interesting. Who were the other retailers? I'm guessing that Revive and Fwrd were dropped as well.

    I think this is pretty spot on, especially with the prestos. Wasn't one of the major catalysts for Supreme their sneaker collaboration with Nike? Obviously things are different now with how fast information travels, IG accounts such as acrhive, etc...where awareness builds faster thus leading to higher demand with limited supply. I imagine even without the increased demand, acrnm would have produced similar numbers of product either way. All speculation tho. Separately, I think they've shown how to build a brand and a world that's particularly compelling and one of the reasons why I'm really into what they do.

    Sureal is correct that St Alfred had the best price for the first iteration of the j58. It was ~$800 all in shipped

    Thanks for the thoughts on the jacket. I thought that the styling on the jacket wasn't so great; probably the sleeper piece as the j28 probably more hyped. Surprised the j16 doesn't have the interops sidezip. I'm confused by the Velcro shoulder detail and how much can be let out from the bottom of the jacket, but I'm sure it's sick.

    Verdict on the j16-gt? Thinking of snagging that one; hearing that the j28 fit is a bit off. Never handled the original so could be the same fit.

    you can zip into different sizes and it works fine. i zip my j58 medium into a j53 small and it works fine. the j53 neck zip is slightly longer than the j58's.

    you make me want to buy the j56 now

    was able to snag a j58-ws even though i told myself i wasn't going to get it. anyone have theirs on hand and has a verdict on it?

    great write up on the j53; glad you got it and enjoy it! i really like it too [have yet to wear it yet - ha]. carlooa - what size did you end up going with? i typically take a M or sometimes a S and opted for a S. the silhouette and the techsys webbing did it for me when i decided to pull the trigger. agreed that more pockets would've been ideal, but probably would have cluttered the entire piece. and ditto on the j58. do the outlier mods work well with the techsys webbing? feel like going full acr on the attachments would break the bank and opting for something like the outlier mods or bagjack makes more economical sense plus looks generally acr-esque.

    i own the j46 from last season and it's great. i handled this fw's version and the hand felt different, seemed glossier and less "sturdy" if that makes sense.

    i only tried on the j50-ws from last fw and the medium was pretty fitted on me and i'm usually an M [5'9" and ~155lbs]. i definitely would not have sized down to a S, but the L could have worked too. almost had that jacket, but when i ordered it the shop shipped the wrong item and the jacket was sent to someone else :/

    When I first saw the j53 via initial photos I was thought it was cool but didn't seem to be a must have (I also didn't know it was supposed to have a hood). When I tried it on I really liked it and some of the details like you mentioned such as the main zipper didn't personally bother me because of the way I would wear it e.g. Snapping a button or two on the placket which is how I wear the j47a and j43a; I never use the zip. I ordered the j53 just now in a small and hope that it fits the way I want it to haha [originally tried on a medium]

    also, this site seems to have a lot of the fw16/17 photos: http://www.thedropdate.com/news/acronym-fw-1617-collection also, what's this attachment on the p23's?
