    Do you mean something else? These pants literally don't exist.
  2. Acronym.

    I don't know that "fail" is the right word. "Limited use cases" would be how I describe it. NFC cards in Gravity Pockets for the metro is convenient, and never "fails". Likewise, Forcelock while stationary is quite nice, e.g. at the office I sometimes use it at my desk so that my headphone cable isn't dangling under my forearms/across my keyboard; or when I'm out walking my dog and for whatever reason need to dock earbuds--again, very convenient. Maybe not useful 98% of the time, but the 2% of the time that it is it works 100% of the time, lol.

    That's what everyone said about the J62-PB before it was released

    I heard @CARLOOA got subnet by sacrificing those spec sheets.

    Sure. But increasing the price puts it into ACR's territory, which Errolson would probably never allow since then it'd be a direct competitor to his mainline; and if people were willing to pay more there's ACR already occupying that space. Maybe it could happen if Errolson was out of the equation, but personally Nike doesn't scream premium as a brand so going even higher in price becomes a little disjointed from a brand perspective. Errolson's name being attached kind of elevates Nike's brand (again, just for me personally) so the prices seem more reasonable (not because of any hype behind E, but because I trust him after years of experience with ACR). Without his name attached I'd laugh at a $700 coat produced by Nike.

    Can't have it all. When you're restricted by a lower pricepoint (relative to ACR) something has got to give.
  7. Bags, backpacks, duffles, messenger, slings, etc.

    What kind of things are you trying to organize? Would suggest GRID-IT for small gadgets and such. If you mean clothes or larger items, packing cubes work well, of which there are plenty.

    DS chaps

    In terms of material, no. But there are stitching/pattern differences across the two, e.g. the ACG funnel crew has different articulation and such than the standard funnel crew.

    Buys $2000 jacket. Still called brokeboi. How to gain respect? T_T (also sarcasm)
  13. Acronym.

    From ACR's description the J16 is "the Acronym response to the original PCU Level 5 jacket" which is a purely military garb. As such, it makes sense it would have velcro pads to allow for identification/morale patches since the original PCU jacket (and 99% of all mil garb) has them.
  14. Acronym.

    Easy logistically, but may present business problems. If it's a coordinated worldwide launch like ACR, your shop is basically competing with all other retailers to sell the product, and every second you delay is a second your competition gets a leg up. Maybe not so much an issue these days with hype as it is, but in days past when ACR was still niche there weren't too many people looking for this product, or willing to pay for it (actually I guess this can still hold true for less hyped items in the releases). So delaying online launches can sometimes backfire as the in-store crowd might not bite for whatever reason, and then the ones that would've elsewhere in the world have already purchased elsewhere. Now you're stuck with a $1000+ item no one will buy, and you still have to pay ACR for it. That said, I'm all for supporting local shops!
  15. Acronym.

    Ideal, but unrealistic, especially when we're talking about boutiques, which by very definition are small outfits. Most don't have the infrastructure, or let alone space, to stock that many items. With Acronym it's a whole nother lever of complexity: pieces are too expensive for a store to purchase several of, even if they wanted to; plus ACR itself is supply constrained so it can't provide the numbers retailers may want.
