  1. The ACRONYM Community Sales Thread

    Thanks.. is that the market rate these days? 1-2 years ago, J1As were going for $1000-1300. At $2k, I rather throw money in Bitcoin and cop a Lambo in 5 years.

    Longshot, but WTB: J1A-S from FW13/14 in a small or medium. This was the one with the Stotz fabric.

    That's an Alphacharge bandana from Autumn 2016 (https://outlier.nyc/feature/alphacharge.html). Don't know why Hypebeast is showing old photos instead of new stuff.

    Constant application of industrial strength DWR. I'm going with Dark Navy, or green when they come up in later seasons.

    Pretty dope they upped the version number to 3.0. I never understood why they went to Polartec Neoshell for the previous version. Neoshell is highly breathable, but when you're making a big down parka, breathability isn't your top priority. From the images, it looks like they improved a lot of things. The opening for the handwarmer pockets look larger and lower, and the cargo pockets are now slanted. I consider these both improvements because you don't have to contort your arms to get to them. It also seems like the collar is higher--always a plus when the weather's cold. I always like the attention to detail Norse puts into their clothing and it's good to see that they're constantly improving upon the past. Had a Waxed Cotton Nunk for a while and that was well thought out, but just a bit short for my liking. Rokkvi 2.0 Rokkvi 3.0
  8. Best Non-SLR digital camera

    Fuji XT-2 is out, but it's a bit above your budget, so go with the XT-1 + good lense, then upgrade to the XT-2 in a year or so when you have more experience. It's not sexy, it's not fun, but I believe in getting something basic, outgrowing it, then moving on to something better when you know what to get. You can buy a 5D MkII, which was a killer camera back in the day, for a fraction of its MSRP, and still make amazing images now.

    In light of last week's IKEA/Balenciaga jokes, I saw these Frakta remakes on IG: (Studio Hagel) (Zhijun Wang) Zhijun Wang's been around on the blogs making filtration masks outta Flyknits and Yeezys. If you haven't seem it, peep his IG: https://www.instagram.com/zhijunwang/

    Got it, thanks for steering me in the right direction.

    What's the sizing like on the J1A-S (from FW13)? I'm a 38/39 regular in suits. Usual pit-to-pit size for slimmer jackets is around 22 inches flat. Saw a large on Grailed, and I'm pretty sure it's too big, but given how infrequently the J1A-S pops up, it's of those times when you think maaaybe.

    Yeah, looks like the gown they put over you at the barber's. Maybe Errolson was giving haircuts that day.

    You've seen this on Grailed, right? https://www.grailed.com/listings/1249861-Acronym-J1A-GT--Medium- Edit: just realised the seller is probably not selling given the comments.

    Thanks Voyager and tv_ice. Curious why ACRNM wouldn't mention that like they used to.
