    You are probably shit out of luck but you might as well try emailing them.

    To make things even better, Nike will only charge $225 when they go on sale on Monday. So ACR is adding $140 when you consider they applied VAT and €40 shipping to US orders.
  3. Urban Techwear

    Is there a functional difference between tecsys and MOLLE?
  4. Your biggest issue with techwear is ?

    Did you post this exact same thread to reddit? Personally I can't wait for all the hype kids to go find something else to fuck up. Though I do have to laugh when I look at Grailed and see all those unsold LF1s with people still asking stupid money.

    I’m yet to notice any patina or wear on my J62, and I’ve not been shy about using it with my 3A-1.

    If any of you "LF1s fuck up my feet" people are a US8, lmk. I live in mine and they fit me perfectly (wish I could say the same about footscapes).
  7. Acronym.

    Who even thinks that vapormax sole looks good? It's like an even uglier version of those Reeboks from a few years back. LF1 uber alles, I guess.
  8. Acronym.

    TIL, as the kids say.
  9. Acronym.

    Right. ACR's design is exemplary, but they're often not first to market. The "PB" fabric showed up as Shakedry before Acronym released the J62 or J63.

    I hear you on the jacket sling. Right now I need another jacket like I need a hole in my head so I don’t have to worry about that, thankfully. FWIW, Veilance has also done things like jackets that stow in their own pockets—the Windshell Blazer for example.
  11. Acronym.

    You and me both. I think my PB-J62 might be the last Acronym thing I buy; can't really justify the loony prices when Veilance exists, has a retail store near me where I can try shit on to make sure it fits, and it's all more reasonably priced.

    Haven't seen the goretex Sk8-Hi mentioned yet: They've been extremely good at keeping my feet warm and dry on a very chilly trip to Detroit.

    That’s been the rumor for a while now, glad to hear it’s not dead.
  14. Acronym.

    Like gravity pockets they’re an idea that seems clever but which actually fails in the real world 98% of the time.

    I wish they're reissue the Component shirt.
