    Acronym.

    I don't think you are right about GTV, think it's actually different goretex. It's listed as 2.5L rather than 3L, and if you look at the pics where the cuff is rolled back, it has a more paclite-ish texture closely resembling that on the J1A-GTV. Think J76 and J36 are standouts for me, latter because it's an improvement to one of my favorites, and former because it's a perfect blend of utility and aesthetic. Only miss for me is the P32-DS because I'd hate to have to deal with one of those 90 degree zips on a fabric so structureless as DS -- opening the zip would be a two-handed affair every time EDIT: pretty cool that even now 6 hours later there's a full size run of pretty much everything.

    Agree on the J46, on the J63A enough is going on that it comes off alright to me. I checked it out in store, it's definitely not the same fabric as PB, feels less soft/smooth and more windstopper-ish

    Had J47TS-GT in S in my cart, but then I was like... do I need this? I already have a J1A-GT? and I removed it from my cart. Is this what it is to become an adult?

    Acronym.

    Quality is not durability, and tbh i'm fine with Acronym doing a comparatively fragile piece in an experimental fabric now and then. It's not like they are switching everything to be polartec alpha, he's still releasing a heavy goretex jacket and xpac bags. source on polartec alpha not being durable? I'm not clear on how that white jacket could be polartec alpha, are you sure? It looks like alpha is a fleece kind of fabric, which is not the texture I'm seeing in the promo pics? At the very least it doesn't look like alpha is the outward facing layer which should improve durability quite a bit?

    Acronym.

    It's totally fair to be critical of Acronym using fabrics that damage easily, since their whole vibe is about function and mobility and durability. But when you say "fast fashion" you're comparing them to companies that are filling up landfills with shitty throwaway clothing, which is unfair imo. Fast fashion is about huge volume, low prices, low quality. Even the fragile Acronym pieces like the foil bags depreciate little and often make their way through three owners before being retired. And obviously Acronym is not high volume low price there's tons of well-made-but-not-durable clothing in menswear and high fashion all around, but you wouldn't compare that to Zara.

    The ACRONYM Community Sales Thread

    I'm getting to the culling phase of my pursuit of Acronym, where I've figured out which stuff I'm into and am trying to shrink my collection to the core essentials. Listing here for a bit first before grailed. Sorry the prices are all over the place; I'm generally trying to make back what I paid or the current market value, whichever is lower. See if you can guess which ones I bought from retail or community members, vs which ones I gave up and shelled out to scalpers for All with bags, spec sheet, jacketsling, might be missing non-logo tape on the jackets Sorry the photos are all wrinkled, they've been packed in storage. Happy to take more photos Not really looking for trades, but I guess if you have a 2018 olive 3A-3TS or a P30-DS, I'd like to hear about it. Open to offers as well these prices are all pre-fee but I'll cover shipping in CONUS WTS J43A-GT (S) $2500 - 7/10 kills me to let this go but I can't justify two Acronym hardshells. Some aesthetic scratches on the interior backing and you should get a professional to re-press some of the tape, but no actual damage. 3A-3TS Black Foil $1000 - 9/10 used this two or three times GT-J34 (S) Black $1600 - 8/10 didn't even know this came in black until I bought it. Some wear on the zippers but generally excellent condition P23TS-CH (M) Black $950 - 8/10 little bit of fading, alas I'm definitely a size S... J62-PB (S) $1000 - 9/10 wore this twice, sick jacket but too slim for me through the shoulders P25H-DS (S) $1500 - 9/10 worn two or three times, amazingly comfortable Vapormax Tee (S) Black $90 - 10/10, never worn, I actually have no idea what this retailed for but would be willing to sell for retail if it's less than this Thanks for looking!!
