    Buy all of @CARLOOA's gear, kids. He's a fast shipper with an A+ attitude. Thx fam.

    This is a bit late to the party, but I recently picked up a J56-S to take some heat off my other daily-wears. After speaking with some other active users on here I wrote a review about my experience with it and other Acronym jackets in general. I think purely in terms of form the J56 is a pinnacle of Stotz Acronym jackets. Aesthetically, it's perfect for what it tries to do and is hands down the best looking cotton jacket that I have ever put on. I love it. However, functionally, I think the pocket array is underwhelming and a novelty at best. The chest pockets, which we can all agree are a brand fingerprint, are extraordinarily difficult to get in and out of to the point where I don't see myself using them for anything other than non-essential storage. They are also obnoxiously dustbin-like in their propensity to catch food crumbs and other bits of debris. I don't look forward to cleaning them out. The hand pockets, which I have always considered to be a weakness in brand design, are also underwhelming in user experience. As usual, I find myself feeling like I would have liked to see something special there other than waterproof zips. As a daily-wear jacket I can't ignore a comparison to my pre-KG era J28-E. It's an older model but it checks out. Acronym clothing is a funny thing in that one can look at the photos and surmise how things might feel and perform, but there's never a substitute for actually wearing it. What I mean by that is that the J28 has, in my opinion, to be a rather crude-looking and novelty-esque aesthetic at face value. A sarcastic feeling of, "cool pockets bro," very much comes to mind. However, when actually putting it on we can see how abundantly practical the compartments are. The larger mezzanine pocket is absolutely perfect for a cell phone or other slim electronics, the smaller one being great for items like keys, lip-balm, or what-have-yous. There is also the secondary larger pocket which I use as storage for all sorts of other miscellaneous practical items like cables, folded papers, and other materials. Then of course, and this is the most important part and where the J56 falls completely flat, is that their placement is in such a way that we do not have to contort our body in any way to get in and out of these. They are effortless in their design and user experience. In my humble opinion it is the perfect array. I really like the J56, but the J28 will always have a special place in my heart even with all it's holes, rips, and repairs. It is sun-faded to the point of being brown-looking, and the cut of the jacket is pretty boxy and outdated for all intents and purposes, but I'll wear it until it falls off my shoulders into a pile of lint and stitching. I don't like it just because I think it looks cool. I like it because it performs well every single time I put it on. The J28, for me, is the apex of functional design and daily-wear experience and I will be very sad the day that I put it to rest. A Stotz version, even with the J56 in my arsenal, would be a very tempting purchase if Errolson were to ever release one. I am forever spoiled by its near perfection.

    The hardware on those bags makes absolutely no sense to me.

    Seconded. Do not run in those. Get shoes that are meant for actual running. Nobody is going to care that you're wearing KMTR's anyways.

    Sizing is typically encouraged.

    Also looking to see if anyone has any experience with Cloudburst Wear. Genuinely curious about the quality of their garments.

    These look great. Wish I could find more pants with this sort of aesthetic. If only these weren't "swishy." I have a pair of shorts that are obnoxiously noisy and I absolutely cannot stand it.

    Does anyone have any recommendations for a formal looking BLACK band collar shirt, similar to the one seen here?

    Lmao at peeps running through OLD posts and downvoting. Let the hate flow, @darkart, my dude. This place ain't for you.

    The office might be cold. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    These have absolutely no practical use case scenario. What you're describing is a good use of internal sleeve pockets, but the whole "gravity" or "ejection" shtick is a complete novelty--let's all be real.
