    after seeing that part of the video I reached out to the shop and the person who replied ended up buying my item for themselves, rather than for some kind of analyzation or deconstruction. it gave me some refreshing perspective. their standards for what it means for a garment to be outworn are clearly pretty high. wearing it everyday for 6 years, and then falling off a motorcycle while wearing it is probably about the bare minimum. also nothing wrong with a local tailor if you're not dealing with a speciality fabric. just because the garments are produced to some degree of complexity doesn't mean they can't be adjusted or repaired by someone local to you. it's a big mistake to let a flaw like a hole or tear worsen while you wait for an email reply. been there.

    FS: J16-GT Medium $1,400 USD + shipping Full pack Just washed this with Grangers. Pictures incoming. Just go find it on grailed, I ended up getting rid of a stubborn dirt mark on the rubber zipper, so any other flaws were too small to photograph.

    whose got large hardshells? my medium J16-GT is getting too slim on me to layer with it, so I'd like to replace it with something of similar value. I will be asking $1500 USD + shipping for my medium J16-GT. It's like new besides one aesthetic flaw with the rubberized zip near the hem. ill provide photos after i give it a wash with the correct rain jacket detergent

    decision paralysis. part of me is hoping all the 3-pack and wallet options sell out before I can decide on one lol. anyone up to play tradesies with their 3 pack? im leaning towards the white WR zip for the sake of visibility. might as well finally throw in that usb drive 3a lol.

    just realized hotoveli has Acronym's photos/descriptions of the upcoming FW1920 items (p33, j27, etc.). SD is apparently an Acronym exclusive fabric. I'm excited to see more uses of this in tops and perhaps maybe trousers. source: https://www.hotoveli.com/collections/acronym/products/acronym-j44-sd-jacket

    all the p30a's for sale in the sales thread was a bit discouraging, seemed like many people we're not liking them, but I got mine in and my initial impressions are very strong. ill perhaps edit this post with a fit pic so I can be the tall guy reference. I think I'm happy with sizing up for length, but even at 6'3ish I would think a medium would still be fine

    Acronym FAQ

    anyone have a step by step process on how to actually remedy incorrect duty charges? would be nice to post it up here in the FAQ. I'm not expecting Acronym's limited support to spend time on helping me out with this.

    fyi UPS is hitting me for $433 CAD to get the p30a into Ontario. that being said I havent tried calling anyone up to talk tariff codes and reduce the duties

    anyone know the retail price of the 3a-mz3 and mz5 foil? And these only came as pairs correct? I've been meaning to pick them up but definitely don't want to pay more than retail for already expensive little pouches. Posting this here as it might as well be a WTB If you can take it a step further and remind me of the measurements for each that would be very nice! all i know is the mz3 is the larger one, unless I have it backwards... Edit: the xpac ones are still on the site so i found the measurements there

    I think I posted about it a while back. I love my J46-FO. I encourage all Acronym fans to try a FO piece eventually. My only complaint is that the collar doesn't look great when you squish the hood all up in it, but I'm fine with just leaving the hood out. J46 is _the_ long cut Acronym design and FO is the most futuristic fabric they offer so I don't think you can go wrong here. On that topic it would be cool to see a J68-FO or an insulated J65-FO with a hood come to fruition.

    same! I couldn't think of an excuse for buying it. I would have liked to see this in the olive xpac. I was tempted to DIY a 3A-2 by using a 3A-MK2 + strap. maybe 3a-9 will return too?

    definitely considered these but im hoping someone here is geek enough to elaborate on their DIY solution. looking for something simple and efficient. i was thinking you could just inspect the total length of the main page's html content, but i dont know enough about web dev to know if thats worth exploring
