  1. The ACRONYM Community Sales Thread

    WTT: DS 3A-3TS-BLK traded for a 3A-2. I want cash on top, £450 for deadstock +tags with tagged photos for proof. This would increase for a worse condition. We would have to use a reputable middleman, no excuses.

    I agree. I take back what I said about a month ago saying they were small-to-medium. That was from the perspective of two of my favourite English brands where most of the work is done by 2 people, incidentally both husband and wife teams. It's no wonder the levels things are at when every drop is on hypebeast.

    Peggs & son has J16 in M and L. "500 gbp for delivery"! You sure it's not £5.00. I bought a scarf from ACR at a bit of a premium.

    So the scarves are looking good this season.

    Toraichi workwear trousers have a similar detail. I don't like guessing the origin/inspiration behind things though.

    %90+ of my stuff is bought online. When shopping in stores the worst realization you can have is that the working culture/conditions in these places are not good and the service directly suffers because of it. It becomes a chore after this. When I first started going into boutiques and stores maybe it was because I was less cynical back then but the staff at certain places seemed to have more of a laugh and that made it a better experience. I just don't have the more objective view on the items in real life than on pictures online. Which is weird because it's the opposite with me and art. I always thought; what if someone did what is more common in Japan and had a niche shop tucked away in some gully ends that was south of the river in London (none of that East London muck) would it be successful? And then I realized the store Alpha Shadows, which carries good stuff, is in Peckham not in Shoreditch. Like there Japanese counterparts they have a good online presence. Can you imagine a city like London where curation is more important than location? Do labour laws change that drastically? ACR is medium sized with a large sized reach. Tricky. I partly agree with WillKhitie in dialing it back a bit. Imagine if the collaboration with United Arrows hadn't ended so soon and this delaying opening things up with Nike.

    It is, i'm pedantic. Also, I don't like things being leaked not in spoilers. The hood is the hardest thing to design in a unique way. The fast hood is a great design but hoods on the outside are more comfortable

    Exsqueeze me for getting political. My gott, the world as it appears, get in my fucking head.

    From Errolson's twitter: This is the level of pessimism within anti-racism movements. Ideas like this disregard class analysis and therefore don't look at racism from an anti-capitalist viewpoint. What's the point if it's inherent and there's no self-realization through activism. What did all dead anti-racist activists fight for? With this reasoning a hypothetical statement to the person that died yesterday in Charlottesville would be "Sorry. White supremacy prevails."

    I want a fidget spinner of the 3-point Acronym logo.

    Got my pair today. I'm a UK 10 in nike, I have never had a pair of nike's in a size 10 that don't fit well. I went down to a 9.5 UK for these. The tightening system sits low around the ankle so to compensate they need slight over-tightening. With this they do fit well. Go down a full size IMO. Edit: UK 10 = 10 UK

    Is a fookin camo? Daaannngg.

    ^ Goretex > Stotz _ Didn't realize it had this. I can see it now looking at shop pics. It's something I thought the J1A-GT should have had but I imagine Gore doesn't like mixing of their materials and straight up doesn't allow mixing with non Gore materials. The extra cuff tightening and the riding up from the bag alters the way it looks, I reckon it does fit. _ I'm turning this into a 'what I thought of this seasons drop'. I bought a J61 so I'm inclined to say it's the highlight but the J47R is da real MVP. The innovation in the construction is unlike anything else. Functionally, I wish the J61's zip didn't catch on the flap. I wonder what the reasoning is behind only having one parka style button up at the neck because I think it needs another one in the chest area to make it less cape-like in the wind. I have wanted a jacket in that kind of silhouette for ages and was waiting to catch a Veilance monitor in the sales, I'm very happy with my purchase. When Shadow Project or Nike have done parkas there's less hype. I think the light material and packable feature has just pushed it over the edge into archetype-shifting territory.

    I don't think appropriation is the right idea. Lately, I've been thinking a lot about what streetwear is. I think that it is in the references being abstracted into the designers sincere individual expression. Because culture is dynamic this is a contradiction born not from the need for endless expression but the endless need for profit. How do you hold back this contradiction? Move with the reference, become self-referential, change the reference. When luxury brands reference it's inherently insincere. I don't think Vetement's irony is sincere. A COLD WALL's reference is a concept. I'm not sure if its good enough to say streetwear is just "sweatshirts n tees". Acronym is streetwear but much more than the sum of even it's non obvious references. I feel like the agitation from individuals that half contradict their current social position, that is, the boss of a company first and a creative second is that they recognize that capitalism stifles individual expression. I assume the lack of real world activism is because of twitters tendency to be a individualist echo chamber where you are blind to the need for actual collective expression to have any chance of change.
