    although doesnt affect function, sounds like it surely is worthy to note that the made in china pieces have some crooked stitching and are slightly less meticulous on the manufacturing side -- i think many folks who buy their first ACR pieces are at least relatively impressed with how impeccable the craftsmanship and seams are (as the craftsmanship probably should be with the current price points)

    this is true, but i'd think one spring/summer in the past 5 years they'd re-drop them -- if they ever had planned on it. shorts are ideal for spring summer. It seems to me that they've moved on from the normal articulated cargo short/ bdu short pant style and have gone to the much more dramatic hakama/harem/dropcrotch pant style and don't seem to be looking back. p22, p23, p25, p27, p30 ... and on that note, i'm also hella surprised they haven't released a modified J4TS, one of the most subtle lowkey, yet iconic pieces.

    gotcha thanks, im curious why @Xu Jianfeng thinks the initial p30 is more favorable than the p30a if the fit is exactly the same, and the cuffs are removable anyways. figured it must be a slight fit variation history seems to repeat itself just with very slight variations. p17 ---> p23 very similar to a p17 maybe a bit baggier up top, with a stretch elongated cuff p30 ---> p30a is a p30 with a stretch cuff (but with zipper to detach) not sure why they haven't redropped any of the old SP short models, those are what i'd like to see most in terms of re releases

    i havent been keeping up with the nuances of recent releases. whats the fit difference between p30 and p30a?

    thank ya brother. i guess maybe the fit is ever-so-slightly altered, otherwise i'm confused as to why they designed a whole new pant #.

    can anyone confirm or deny that the p15 is basically the pant version of the p17? or is there another cropped pant model that it is closer to in fit/ upper block. its been years. @xumatrix @daniel any help on this 1 fellas? cheers

    edit _ nvm. I would call gore and see if they have any scraps or B grade WS that you can purchase. just to give you an idea of actual WS cost, you could buy approximately 80 yards of WS for the same price of a CP4. Which makes the project pretty insane from a price efficiency standpoint

    Hood sizes will definitely get larger by size as you stated How do i know? I have produced and created patterns for countless hooded garments and parkas. easiest way to think about it -- if you move up from a medium to say, a large, generally speaking all the panels will be slightly expanded (some parts of the garment will increase in size more than other parts of the garment forsure, ie. the chest measurement will increase much more than the length of the jacket) , but without getting into it too deeply, this means that the actual opening to the hood will absolutely be larger because of the fact that the corresponding panels are larger (which means the neckline and collar area circumference or arc length will be different and need a larger hood to accommodate In simpler terms -- the actual "shape" of the hood may stay the same but it will sure fit you differently. Those who think someone who wears a size small J32 could buy a size or 2 up and still have the hood fit the same, are not using much common sense..

    I have tried dying black stotz multiple times and it has not been successful -- the egyptian cotton mechanism ( the fabric tightens up, and the pores close, in order to reduce water absorption) actually works too well, making it so the liquid dye can't penetrate the fabric deeply. If anyone has had real successful getting a deep black, let me know..

    Agreed -- that is solely what I'm referencing. If it was some newjacks who just got into ACR that would be one thing. For enthusiasts to be reposting those images is just embarrassing, next level cringey. Ya'll need Drake to validate your purchases for you?

    What's worse than champagnePapi rocking acronym? Acronym/Drake dickriders posting the picture in their little Instagram stories, tagging erlsn.acr and champagnepapi to have a .01% chance that they notice you... Then simultaneously acting like their annoyed that said champagnePapi is wearing ACR....

    Agreed -- this iteration must be mighty old, because the last pac lite version of the gt-j29 (i believe) was 09-10, but it had zippered access to the bottom hand pockets which I don't see in the j29 above. @Dakota just curious where did you purchase it, that didn't have the jacket name in the listing description?
