    Word... these are stellar. Water resistance is actually pretty good too. Lighter than CH, and been pretty hard wearing so far.

    ... I’m assuming it’s not worth it to own P10a-ch,s,e AND ds !?!?!?

    He’s commented a few times on social media... j1a 2.0 was supposed to have a second drop last month, but he said they weren’t ready

    Ya, j67 is picked up the cape... have to see if it’s as engineered as the product shots suggest, or if it’s just a poncho compared to the CP2. I think i like the BLK/RAF j36 better... but seems I’m alone in that respect. Funny the j1a didn’t come, I saw there were issues at the “new” factory and it’s been delayed. Maybe the FO version will show up soon!?!!

    Just got the F1-T-C in... and I’m pretty underwhelmed. I didn’t have high expectations to begin with and I actually like the shape and fit more than I thought. But a few notes. weight: 53g with clip-on(15g) not ideal, but position of the weight combined with the straight shape of the temple does mean I couldn’t lean forward more than 45* without then slipping. That and the fact that my mykita mylon Iota are 25g made the weight very noticeable. Clip: I’m sure I’d get use to it, but magnetic definitely would have been the way to go, there’s too much space in between the frame and the clip. There not cumbersome, but I’d need to see an Acronymjitsu way on video to not seem like an 70yr old man putting some shades on my readers finish: this is what I first noticed, the foggyness of the titanium. doesn’t seem like it was polished or not assembled in a sterile environment. Obviously only an issue with the clear pair. I probably won’t keep them, even if i did, not sure how often I’d use them anyway.

    In the same boat. I got the Mykia Iota last month... I'll pass along my comparison when they get in

    I mean... I guess they’re ok for a first run. Kinda surprised it wasn’t a collab for their first shot at eyewear. ... and I’m assuming if I bought a pair, and your bought a pair they’d all be sold out

    He hasn’t posted it on IG yet... so we’ll see after that! Want those p10a’s to have my babies!!

    I wouldn’t hold my breath on an influx of large runs of new product. There probably won’t be that much difference. “Made in China” can be a blanket term for low quality/labor conditions yea... but it’s safe to say you’re not getting Old Navy socks and a J1 made in the same factory. I’ve toured production factories in a number of countries, and whoever owns the factory matters 100% more than the country it’s in.

    Re: this years “collection” not only is it important to think of Acronym’s drops as an evolution vs. collection, but even the individual pieces are released as a function of production rather than storytelling as with most designers. I think of Acronym less as a fashion brand and more that it’s just a design firm. In the same way Porsche evolves (how different does each 911 “look”, and how many new models are released) some people prefer certain years to others but each iteration is an attempt to better the previous. But in response pieces released this year... I’ve been loving my 72, no it’s not a jacket and I’ll never zip it into a shell so it’s a really expensive shirt, but the cut is perfect for DS. P30 is my only venture into drop-crotchery, but again particularly the CH version has been a pleasant much more wearable design than I imagined. The J74 has been a dreamy surprise, thinner and lighter than it should be and the silkyness really stands out as an uber comfortable and easy layering piece. J47a-ws is something I’ve been waiting for, being in SoCal GT is usually overkill so having a truly ACR-DNA jacket I can wear year round is perfect. 3A that’s not just an mz3 or 5 !?!? Seriously, we’ve been clamoring for these for years... mz2ts and mz1 are 2 of my all-timers. Not to mention GT in volt and white! I guess I’ve been more pleasantly surprised by offerings this year than anything.

    Same. They recently updated the description on the site to remove a mention comparing it to the 8TS as well
