    The ACRONYM Community Sales Thread

    WTS: J44-GT Medium (bag and spec sheet, 8/10): $1000 J39-S Black, SMALL (bag, spec sheet, tags, 9/10): $1400 edit - J39 is small, not medium. It's still black.

    I got a demo of TNF’s new Futurelight fabric today. Utterly insane how thin and light they’ve made it while endowing it with enough performance to use climbing Everest. Really sustainable production too, apparently. Sadly had to decline when they offered to measure me for a jacket

    I’m on record here saying how dumb I thought the LF1s were at first. Then I tracked down a sample pair before the first drop. Now they’re almost all I ever wear. The zip really does add functionality. I’m not sure that cobra buckle does.

    The merino bits might shrink but won't the nylon bits stay the same size? I reckon you might end up destroying it if you did that.

    Thanks; after I wrote it and actually thought about the specs a bit harder I started getting a bit skeptical about this 180kWh version, but they certainly seem to be lining their ducks up correctly. I hope they succeed, because we need more EVs.

    The dude who founded Rivian? If and when I get over to see them in person I will see if he notices me wearing Acronym and Veilance...

    I thought Firmament stopped carrying Acronym too?

    He mad. The P24A is quite different to the P3 from over a decade ago and probably the most interesting trouser pattern ACR has made in a while.

    I’m a bit late to the party but very impressed with the Align MX pants.

    Because Internet forums like this one have given nerds all over the world the idea that it’s bad to wash your clothes frequently (and in some cases at all).

    I hate to actually but actually these days they come with seven years free servicing and you could certainly daily drive a California/Portofino or an FF/GTC4 Lusso (and some people do!). Since this is the Acronym thread, here's a piece about the Berlin Roborace that Errolson took part in earlier this year: https://arstechnica.com/cars/2018/10/roborace-wants-the-future-of-racing-to-be-ai-plus-humans-working-together/
