    i'm in the camp that your clothes should fit you right, but if making alterations always go with professionals

     

    This is less of a fit issue and more of a design preference.  It fits fine, I just think I'll get more mileage out of a standard length shirt.  I've got a great tailor in town that has done some other mods to my ACR stuff. 


  2. Late to the party, just picked up a S23-AK, thanks again for the heads up on Notre.  For SS I wish it was a little lighter weight, but pretty optimistic about it regardless.  I am thinking I may try and take the hem up a bit so it's less tunic more shirt, anyone else been down this road?


  3. I remember someone mentioning Notre slow shipping times, I can't imagine they are processing that many orders that they can't manage a better turnaround time.  Is Notre a 1 person show or something?

    I own the KR-SM1 and the Nylon pouch part has never gotten in the way. I just make sure to wear the nylon against the body so that it's not visible. Mine is quite old so some of the text has worn off. That's the only part that really annoys me. Otherwise, it's been a staple in my collection.

    I echo this sentiment.  I also have 1 for sale, hmu.


  5. I wonder how many other brand forums, etc.. this person is on complaining about price and essentially declaring how much better they could do it themselves...

    You should really start an airism thread and shit on ACR there instead

    100% this.  This thread should be for fans of the brand.  I understand that some constructive criticism or discussion about QC issues will be inevitable, but if someone literally hates everything about the brand and knows they could do everything better, I agree that they should go start their own thread and/or clothing brand.

    I just copped a pristine pair of P16a-CH a couple weeks back. After wearing my p10-ch regularly for the last 5 years, it feels fucking majestic walking around with like twice as much fabric lol

    Is it thicker than the P10-CH?

    wow, so you had the entirety of the hem binding replaced as well? i was hoping to open up the ends to pull out the old piece within and replace

    There is no inner elastic, the black binding on the outside is the elastic.

    please do. was it just as simple as affixing it on both ends of the hem?

    My initial plan was to do something like that, an extension of sorts.  But I opted to have the whole thing replaced to keep it looking clean.  I paid a premium to a local guy who makes clothes and he did a really clean job of swapping the elastic, you'd never know that it wasn't original.  Definitely want someone who understands how to get the measurement and gathering correct for installing the new piece.

    forgot who here removed the elastic from their j58 - has anyone else done it? seconds away from biting the bullet here

    Yeah, I had mine replaced with a longer piece so as to relax the fit.  I posted pics several pages back.  If you are going to proceed I can send you a link for the elastic I used, it took me about 6 tries to find something that matched OEM elastic.

    Those P24-S are tempting me 

    They are so good, I have been wearing them at least 3x a week since I got them, very easy to style and very comfortable.

    On another note, so many years later, i'm still amazed by the foldable 6ts flap that you can extend out if the load of the bag requires it. I'm sure it's been used elsewhere by other people but i seldom see it at all yet it's such a simple solution. Whether it was bagjack or acr good job to them

    Any neat details you guys will never fail to be impressed by? I'm sure the phone pocket is a big one

    The removable bag liners are a great touch too.

    Would love some advice on jacket sizing.

    I'm a LARGE in Veilance. True chest is 42". Most of my jackets are 22" pit to pit.

    Seems like a J1B-GT, for example, in a Medium would be good, not slim, good to layer underneath?

     

    For what it's worth, I am 5'7, 175lbs right now.

    I can't speak to that particular jacket but based on your size I would guess Large would generally be a better fit.
