I know I'm beating a dead horse, but we are spending more time discussing the thread itself than the actual thing that brought everyone together. Ya, I remember when I recognized every person one here and the thread was a handful of people with sizing advice, care instructions, proxies, etc. but I do feel like an old man on his porch shaking a carbon fiber cane telling the kids to get off my lawn. We were all new to ACR at some point, but I think the "OGs" are just looking for more appreciation for the brand. Yes, they're just clothes, but the level of technical proficiency and attention to construction is something we discussed and respected, not just " where to cop". I think my general feeling was embodied when walking down the street in prestos, p10-a, ss-cp2 and 8ts, and I hear a "yo, sweet acronyms"... I turn around and think I can have a conversation with one of y'all, and the dude looks bewildered with a "acronym makes clothes?" That's it, I'm off my goretex soapbox.
P.s. J1ts came today, armhole feel a little higher and tighter, waist fits loose, but overall mad happy. New detached pockets are small but sweet.
