    Acronym.

    i just think this needs to be echoed. some things are to be expected of the mother - like infrastructure. if I pay $2k for a shell, i'd hope the people that made it love as much if not more than me. to not accept repairs (especially when preaching sustainability etc) is.. counter intuitive.

    hype kills appeal for me. after spending years familiarizing myself with the brand and what E brings to the proverbial table, i can now narrow down what about it speaks to me, and achieve integration of its strengths with a garment here and there, not every element of my wardrobe/outfit ACR. i also think this speaks to the inevitability of change. i don't see the brand innovating much on a conceptual level, more just different clever iterations of what is fundamentally the same thing; more evolution rather than revolution. as i've matured and my lifestyle has changed, i'm finding myself still very fond of acronym, but more attracted now to mixing technical, organic, and practical. i didn't always have a great grasp on how to do that in a way that satisfied my inner critic. however now as the fashion landscape changes and brand awareness increases, the appeal has tanked. the garments are hollow - the people who wear them are what is interesting.

    i'm shopping for moto gear, and i'm finding it increasingly ironic how much inspiration some ACR stuff gets from that realm but the functionality of the pants and jackets is largely limited to urban commuter. would be nice to see functionality taken to the next level; not just made for walking. i might wear some armor under my bulkier pants like p24, but for the most part these pieces are aching for cordura, leather, and accommodating armor inserts. also would fill a nice gap in the market because unless you're sacrificing protection, proper "cool" riding gear doesn't exist. all very heavily branded and function obvious.

    comparable photos of my beloved real deals below. pretty obviously fake once you examine the details. EDIT: i feel like this thread is a pretty safe space, but if anyone thinks that posting details of legitimate garments on here is a bad idea so as to protect said details from being seen by untrustworthy eyes.. please let me know and i will take them down. i do not want to unknowingly contribute to the accuracy of the counterfeit industry.

    i would like to echo this sentiment, the merino is special. cozy and has natural stretch. i have fallen asleep in it more than once. really love it when acr works with organic textiles. this is such a lovely intersection of proven materials and forward thinking pattern engineering. god i love this thing. Didn't wanna repost pic i posted a couple weeks ago. included one more recent pic and one bonus - apple store employee asked to sketch me on an ipad. he liked the garms but apparently didn't like my face.

    warm, light, beautiful weave pattern. one size might be an issue, i know it was for a friend of mine. not keen on how umites is wearing it on mothersite, on my head its that shallow fisherman hat fit that i was looking for when fully pulled down. it likes to fray, keep depiller on hand and give it a good once over from time to time depending on how much head time it gets. great hat. $300 hat? no chance. but we're not here because of that.

    after a 4 day handling period and two day transit period (transit was quick.. just took them 4 days to actually send it) to receive a retail ACR product in a large haven bag (to better accommodate the piece?) stuffed into a small box (then why the larger bag?) with a crinkled spec sheet.. i take issue with the whole transaction. not the kind of service (lack thereof) i'd expect after spending $900. AITA here? service was shit.

    does haven typically not include ACR bag with its crumpled spec sheet? not super thrilled with the shopping experience.
