    this is the real reason to stfu. i was fooling myself thinking anyone here cares to really put some thought and care into a discussion that i personally find extremely relevant to the audience participating in things that trend. its much easier to cop out and be "more acrnm than human"

    i'm entitled to an opinion like everyone else on here, and i stand by everything i said.. i've played worse odds than the probability of making a relatively accurate assumption based on an honest anecdote. i agree that this has devolved, and you're right i went off and it wasn't warranted. it was indulgent. sincere apologies Eric, good luck on whatever wave you ride next ~ my apologies to you kings who wasted your time reading my post but "the poet must not avert his eyes"

    points taken and certainly i understand your feelings. but i'll say what i said in an earlier post - the garments are hollow, the people who wear them are what's interesting. are you no longer interesting? were you ever? or are you a serial ship-jumper like with supreme in 2013 and god-who-knows how many other trends before your property had potential to hold water just by investing? you're using the transitive property when it really doesn't make sense. are your creative and expressive sensibilities changing? perhaps, and that is completely valid. but to change your taste based on the "public reception" (lest we forget despite the production #'s acronym are so low "public" is really a misnomer here) is shallow. i can't tell if you're just making a racket for the sake of the resonance. of course the members of an enthusiast forum don't want to associate with the layman just because they are holding the same thing. of course such an opinion is bound to strike a chord - in fact it is probably healthy to be reminded from time to time. but woe be the "enthusiast" that soapboxes mainstream rejection as novel. don't cut of your nose to spite your face sir. your rep signals for reservations regarding your loyalty. less objective personal conjecture: anyone to just come out and say they're a die hard john mayer fan is sus in my book. john is the reason i put serious hours into the guitar, john introduced me to great things and remains relevant to my interests. but one thing i would never say outright is "i am a hardcore john mayer fan". is his taste (good and bad) not well known? hodinkee literally keeps him on the masthead 25/8. your lamentation is like a monk saying "i don't know what all the villagers at the base of our mountain are doing, but if my lifestyle wasn't enough to signal my devotion let me say this brethren: i am a hardcore fan of the buddha". i'm not convinced you weren't a bad apple from the get. and yes, i realize the irony that i likened JM to a heady buddha. just trying to illustrate a point.

    based on how this thread has been flooded with the wrong types of new "enthusiasts" in the past year, i will concede that i took you for a something of the sort. having said that, your problem is certainly not a common one and i apologize for the curt response. having unusual proportions sounds like a discouraging challenge. if i were you i would weigh my options and decide on size based on priorities: does the smaller size restrict range of motion? is the bunching of the fabric bad enough to warrant measures as "drastic" as alteration or sizing up? i would look into jackets cut in your favor to at least find a better balance. J16 has very roomy shoulders and chest, might suit you better. also not that this is a reasonable suggestion (or new information to you) but buying without first trying on is forever working against you - especially with final sale policies on acr across the board barring the mothership. so perhaps with some guidance from this poised community you will become a more savvy/informed acr consumer leaving as little room for error as possible. i recommend swallowing COD if you must have pieces and buy from mama with confidence and peace of mind with 14 days.

    this issue is usually sorted by buying the correct size in the first place

    point taken, but @henrisan says very clearly they're in berlin.. if that's true its borderline offensive to not offer on site repair.

    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.
