    Hopefully it doesn't fade (or wear) like epic cotton.

    What size are you looking for? I have one in L that I had altered slightly but these days I never wear it because I have a few Veilance blazers that fit properly (and if I need to be that formal then Veilance usually works better than ACR in those situations).

    It’s why I will only buy glasses from opticians. Also the fact that I can use an HSA to pay for them, but it’s no good having frames if I can’t have lenses that let me actually see. Hope you find a solution. Have you tried reaching out to Mykita in Berlin?

    I’ve been happy with the Mykitas I bought last summer, both regular glasses and prescription sunglasses.

    Acronym is about to get a lot more expensive if you live in the US and this shit comes to pass: https://ustr.gov/sites/default/files/enforcement/301Investigations/Preliminary_Product_List.pdf

    On the J22 at least, the sleeve hitch tab doesn’t line up perfectly so there will be a bit of a twist. Also, you need to slide the forearm up under the shoulder part of the sleeve, rather than scrunching it up, because of the zippers for the gravity pockets. Some jackets have a different style of sleeve hitch where there’s a little loop at the elbow where you feed the sleeve hitch through before closing it.

    On my J22, yes, all the time. Never with my J5A.

    Nothing, AFIAK. I'm pretty sure it's been discussed in this thread already.

    Yes, they do. Makes much less sense in a jacket, particularly if you're going to carry a bag that might sit on the zip.

    Yeah, Epic doesn't pill. The encapsulation wears off pretty fast when you wash it, and it doesn't stand up well to heavy wear but that's more a problem with trousers than jackets. The DS fabric is the one that pills. And these new P10s say they're made from nylon so they're not Epic. You pull the zip up the back like a wetsuit. I tried one on the last time the J41 appeared, and within about two minutes was sweating my face off, too. It's definitely not one of the better jackets Acronym have made, IMO.

    The J5A has a zip like that and it’s not an issue.
