    The ACRONYM Community Sales Thread

    I think it’s reasonable to consider “community” in the selling price—I’m all for flaming when you go here and resell. It’s grailed default behavior but, here, more is expected.

    I met Rio Ferdinand when I was like 12, now forever blowing bubbles.

    Yo, try being a West Ham supporter, worst colors, at best like 3-4 at worst bottom half. Did I mention worst colors? Development squad for good teams. Lastly, Tottenham has been fire the past few years and we're slowly inching toward relegation. To keep on topic, I think the discussion is fruitful because we can break the biases against some global economic realities and distinguish xenophobic criticism from valid ones.

    I'm just playing man, I know you cool. I think it's good to think about, regardless of what we positions we hold. I'm glad that our community can discuss downstream and upstream effects of consumption. Also, my man, you got the Jose Rizal handle and you're not gonna entertain discussions re: labor and imperial exploitation!?!

    Damn, chill. You know we still buying! We're talking about stuff because nothing else going on now. I think all of us are trying to just socialize over this stuff so we can continue to talk about Acronym in a lull.

    Whattaboutism! Yeah, that was last year right? Anta gonna pour R&D into Amer.

    It's UV light that affects color. Dope dyeing will reduce degradation but it's still happening.

    My only issue with the change in manufacturing is this: Espousing a political view of responsible capitalism via retweet AND employing a contract factory in a country with a bad record of regulating environmental impact and labor conditions while having clothing made of materials with high pollution risk in an industry notorious for labor exploitation. Some assurances would be good so I can retain rose-colored perceptions.

    It’s like €300 more than the 2016 version.

    Domestic or foreign production does not really mean anything inherent with regard to quality, but moving abroad suggests something about E's business ethics. Honestly, I can’t believe my mans. I guess there's a reality where actual production limitation (machinery/tooling) are the proximate cause of the move. Without more, I'm not going to be that naïve. For Errolson to retweet William Gibson religiously and express sympathy to the liberal causes of living wages and ethical capitalism, especially concerning the clothing business, the move seems craven. Not like anyone really cared about the production though.

    Your biggest issue with techwear is ?

    I haven't really felt the same sort of palpable decline with regard to the bread and butter pieces (theta ar, alpha sv, gamma hoodies/pant, harnesses, atom lt). I think they sometimes have these really innovative well made ideas that make it to market then they nix the line too early without refinement: alpha sv articulated gloves, miura climbing packs. With regard to your comment of Gamma AR pants, I think they had a higher GSM fabric before the newer burlyweave. It's weird because the current Align MX from Veilance seems to be more like early aughts Arc than current mainline Arc. Additionally, I do lament the fact they've went more casual with regard to most of their line and, like you said, let their IP slide in recent years. I feel they're redoubled technical efforts with the Anta purchase and R&D cash infusion, newer UL packs, expanding alpine stuff, the MX line with mixed fabric panels in targeted locations. I think I will still make recurring adjustable climbing harness, gamma pant, atom synthetic insulator, and theta/alpha hardshell shell purchases.

    "My favorite color is blue, what size should I wear?" Bruh, l'm not one to snap on people on a forum but you're so low effort I hope someone negative reps you to prevent you from buying on these forums. Your laziness aside, which ACG bottoms? The wide legged ones or the skinny ones? The ones without stretch or with? The pants are gigantic and there is a small exchange, I don't know, ~4–5 pages back about this. Basically, you're sizing super/ultra wide Acronym pants on your height. Some people are 6'5"/196cm+ wearing small pants sizes for waist fit and they'll prolly need size L P23/P30 for height and normative fit. If you're intending to buy $1600+ pants and deprive more deserving community members of these pantaloons, at least go back a few pages. Finally, I'm going to assume you're a hypebeast manlet so you should go XS.

    It's on the interior zip not the storm collar zip.
