    Interesting - I've never noticed the 'twist,' but am clearly seeing the alignment issue in your J22 photo. Probably a few variables; sleeve design, forearm circumference, how tight one makes the sleeve closure, etc-

    ^ you mean the Canvas Pant? Think that was as close to 'jeans' as they've come before - unless I'm blanking on something...

    Yeah, that sounds right to me.

    Shit, I might have to take that back - I'm def. thinking of the belt @Danwise just posted (3A-WB1). @junkie_dolphin was that sold during a different season? The Set's were all packaged, and you couldn't buy pieces separately (even if the items came in their own baggies (just like the Suspensor items!)). The pic from that Grailed listing clearly shows 3A-WB2 as being part of Set-2 and Set-3.

    99% sure that this design predates SET 3, substantially. Like back to the first few retail collections. Probably some subtle update - but I'm almost positive there was an OD nylon belt w/ D-ring buckles (or something along those lines).

    P10 top block was definitely tightened up between earlier and later versions. This has been discussed (not sure if it resulted in a Gen. iteration on the official ACR product listing - and you'd probably have to dig to find original measurement listings), but IMO wasn't significant enough to 'size-up'. Eliminated the baggy seat, etc. Haven't heard of sim. modification to the P24...but no other pant has been issued as many times as the P10, so-

    They suck. Has been discussed here before I think. Tried to do me the same...

    Current Pro fabric is much more breathable and qualitatively feels lighter. Different membrane type from the original Pro specification. This is not a super recent switch, but it was noteworthy enough that it was mentioned in product copy, back when. *actually, I just looked back at the J69 page. They're still calling it out as 'next-gen. technology'

    If done correctly. Ironing is one of the mfg. req'd ways to restore the DWR.

    J69 has the EscapeZip, and is def. not centered. More. I doubt my case was an exception, but the collar down needed a bit of love out-the-box. Ironing nec. to get anything as clean as the product shots. Even where reinforced, the ends of the collar tend to curl in a pretty un-appealing way. Trade-off with the super lightweight Gore-Tex Pro, I suppose... FWIW, I've just been in the habit of wearing the collar up.

    SDR Tote or one of the Outlier paper nylon bags? Outlier seems to be out of stock at the moment tho-

    Haven't seen an official one since way back - a real dark brown/red mix. This Grailed listing could just be overexposed, but the affectation is pretty similar from what I remember.

    Looks like GT-J9TS (Gore-Tex XCR, FW/0607)...which evolved into the GT-J20. Model share w/ Tilak, IIRC. Did the transfer marking survive on the TecSys? Or has that worn off?

    Not coincidental to this conversation, but I believe she's also dipped out of Nike. People wanted to get all conspiratorial about Errolson vs. Nike re: ACG....but corporate doesn't really keep independent designers on board for extended periods (extrapolate reasoning why she transitioned into a formal position for the brand after her own JFS collection). You come into the fold, or- I'd always assumed the ACR designer-led NikeLab stuff was going to be a capsule. If anything, it lasted longer than expected. Will be interesting to see what comes next for her.
