  1. Acronym.

    d - i'll tell you my take.. if its pissing wet outside, using the inner jacketsling prevents the wet panels from facing my body/prevents me from having to violently shake my jacket when i get inside wherever i'm going which is a bit much when i fling water everywhere within a 5ft radius.

    slightly off topic.. wanted to make sure everyone here saw Ash Thorp's amazing proof of concept akira "tribute" which is more of a redux. video 3rd module down on the page.

    @alavkx also thank you for doing the due-dilligence.. unlike most people who make a sufu account just to come to this thread and try to buy or sell something, get told off, and never post again. refreshing. cheers.

    just wanted to say that it very well could be the treatment and reproduction on these images, as opposed to using a different color textile. both are possible, but based on how cool the white tones are in the flyknit racer midsole vs the neutral to warm whites of the older flyknit, i'l going to hazard a guess to say the variation is due to color reproduction.

    this thread really should change it's name to the whining and moaning ACR vent thread HEADS ONLY.. or just be like p2w and take our frustrations out on the culture.

    i see no reason why acronym would have incentive NOT to raise prices. no other brand even comes close, awareness of resale market, inflation, fair worker compensation.. if he constructs it they will come. maybe if acr had a competitor it would incentivize competitive pricing, but there is no competition - he really is in a class of 1. considering this is his life's work and how much greater the demand is than the supply.. ya. i'd raise prices too.

    every since i let my j43a go, something has been missing. i've been contemplating filling the void, i'm wondering if anyone could lend insight between the j47a (ws or gt) vs J28-gt. it seems like the 47a doesn't often make it into the conversation because of the ridiculous price and lack of availability. i really want a gore shell, but the 47a-ws might have to do just because of the price vs the gt. also i've been extremely pleased with my 58-ws as a stand alone garment in wet conditions.

    does anyone know anything about acrnm logo tape with cherries painted(?) on it? not sure if that was from acr but i suspect it was custom.. cant ever find the picture i saw. just wondering what the story with that is.

    ya well that's just like your opinion man

    i read it geez more than 10 years ago now, it offered awesome insight into the psyche etc. thanks for that, gonna read again i def still have it somewhere. for some, for sure. for most, perhaps. the feedback loop and dopamine hit are not things i was overlooking. that was my thought at the time, not an intentional informal analysis on the way UI stimulates addictive tendencies. cynacism wins the day again..

    narrow and deep baby.. there's a joke in there somewhere.. but seriously i was just having the conversation about resistance to change and accepting a new point of reference.. john is such a phenomenal communicator it's so satisfying.. you can see it on everyone's face. and the interplay of cross culture pollination in this global economy of things is super new and exciting. "domestic" policy issues become global issues simultaneously. some people get it, other's catch up.. yet you still reserve the right to disagree. i have to say.. despite all the stress and bs that has come with this internet age of things.. it excites the hell out of me. that's probably why we all keep scrolling.

    how about retail and i'll meet up with you? never seen you on the forum before.. im in midtown..

    just be grateful. erlsn works his ass off, jm worked his ass off to get to where he is, we work our asses off to afford these wonderful garments.. misery loves company and it seems like sometimes that's what this thread turns into. it's important to get over these tiny problems with the culture surrounding super desireable and luxurious things and be grateful you even have the privilege to be this comfy. just beacuse you are saving up, fantasizing, or trying to learn does not mean there is no high road. work hard stay focused, don't bring others down with you. this thread gets really pathetic at times, but i know most of us here are above that. anyways having trouble finding lf100 for "retail or less" .. at least in a 10.5

    i paid $250 for my bamboo prestos and 300 for my volt lavas because i bought them day of/day after release. this is par for the course/not a downmarket indicator. the secret ingredient for resale is generally time and patience.
