    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...

    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.

    Looks very good to me. I like that blue, I want some blue pants.

    Is it thicker than the P10-CH?

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

    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. https://www.byannie.com/fold_over_elastic_2YD

    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.

    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.

    The removable bag liners are a great touch too.

    I dont have all the pants in the lineup, but these might be my favorite of the ones I do have. Good price, someone should cop.

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

    Always large for pants (I have a 34" waist), but I am picky about which model due to the often short inseams. I'm around a 33"+ inseam.

    Im similar dimensions and usually wear a large in ACR, sometimes medium though. If you aren't a fan of tight and plan to layer, I think you are in good shape with the large.

    Here are some fit pics. The pic with red shirt is before modification. I had both medium and large and was really kind of in between sizes, but wanted a slimmer fit on this jacket. I mostly wear unzipped and the elastic mod has been in an improvement. I can't remember, but I think we relaxed it an inch or two. I also had the wrist snaps moved a little bit to accommodate watches, etc... I'm 6'1" ~175lbs

    I didn't realize this service was offered, would be nice if they would leverage the size of their company and offer labels or even discounted labels in lieu of refunds. Returns to ACR from the US are way too expensive and a company like PayPal could certainly negotiate a better rate.

    I think I had to order 5 or 6 pieces of elastic before I found the right match to the OE elastic, I have a really good tailor here that has nailed a couple of other ACR mods for me in the past.

    I had the elastic hem on my J58 replaced with a longer piece to relieve some of the bunching when unzipped, much happier with the fit now.

    I am acting like price doesn't matter because it doesn't. You or me getting on the internet and complaining about pricing is not going to change the luxury goods market. I want Porsches to cost $40,000 and Bugatti's to cost $100,000, but that isn't going to happen. I want there to be an infinite supply of Supreme x LV at a price point the everyperson can afford. I want J1A to cost $700 not the very reasonable price of $1400 you have suggested. What I really want though, is for ACRNM to continue to do whatever the fuck they want and can get away with. If people are willing to pay $3,000 for a shell, then they should charge $3,000 for a shell. It is a brand that I like and I want them to have success by whatever measure they determine. I don't care how many units of a particular item you think they should produce, I want them to be happy and creative and do what they have done for a very long time that has been working very well for them.

    You're thread so you're the boss, but I did not say or imply "blind" passionate support. On the contrary I think a majority of the people who have followed and contributed to this thread for a long time have done so with eyes wide open and with a lot of critical thought regarding the details that go in to the garments. Whether someone deems those details valuable enough to justify the price is irrelevant, the price is the price.

    Solutions for a problem that doesn't exist. Maybe I'm wrong and ACR will hire you as a consultant to help them improve their struggling business, but I doubt it.

    If you want to start a discussion, start your own thread, it's a discussion that has gone on for a long time regarding luxury brands in general, not just ACR, feel free to continue the discussion on your own thread. This thread is over 10 years old and has been sustained by people who passionately support the brand, not question and complain about it.
