  1. The ACRONYM Community Sales Thread

    WTS: 3a-1, olive xpac, barely used. Asking ~1400 USD. Posting here for my sufu peeps; would rather sell to you guys than Grailed, so hit me up.

    Had the chance to handle the Isogon MX today. Fits very much like the regular Isogon, but it’s longer and with maybe a bit more room in the arms, presumably for layering. The four-way stretch in the material is a welcome change for Veilance, and hopefully a sign of things to come; generally Veilance tends to favour structure over drape, and while the Isogon MX is by no means “drapey,” it certainly tends to hang a little more that other pieces.

    The site monitor I used to use always did stuff like that. Not sure if it’s picking up on actual changes being made somewhere or what. General question for subnet boys out there—how many (if any) interops jackets can we look forward to this F/W? S/S has been sadly lacking...

    That went up months ago.

    The old Mionn IS Jacket is in the workbook--but workbooks sometimes lie, so I'm not gonna say for sure one way or another. But no way the Mionn will stay dead.

    It’ll be back. Hooded one too.

    In a world where Acronym prices jump every season, Good Guy Veilance keeps prices real. Some highlights from the new stuff: Conduit LT, ~700CAD - down midlayer - 850 fill goose down, with 80 gsm and 40 gsm Coreloft in certain spots for moisture management - bomber-style collar, like the old Graph Cardigan Isogon MX, ~700CAD - hooded softshell, a la Gamma LT Hoody - Burley Double Weave and Schoeller Dynamic, so four-way stretch throughout - apparently derived from the regular Isogon, though it looks like it's cut a lot longer Anneal Down, ~1300CAD - a short parka with a stormhood; warm af - Gore Thermium face (that's basically 2L Windstopper bonded to synthetic insulation), with an inner layer of 850 fill goose down, plus 60 gsm Coreloft in the pits probably - notably not waterproof, but too warm to wear in rainy conditions anyways; depending on the size of the down baffles this could be as warm as (or warmer than) the Node Down

    lol dude you're too much. I assumed danii was joking around.

    Two thoughts on the GTPL: 1. Keep in mind the original J1 was actually made in Paclite. Not sure if the original idea was that it was a jacket you'd be pulling on and off a lot (hence interops), but that use-case certainly seems to suite the material. 2. I actually like the drape of the GTPL a little more than the regular GT. Seems a little more... buttery? Edit: hang on, I don't see internal jacketsling loops in those photos—is it only external, or is it just the way the jacket's resting?

    According to Errolson (via instagram), prices have gone up because every aspect of manufacture has gotten more expensive. He has expressed dismay at this, going so far as to acknowledge that prices are indeed insane. I'm not in a position to judge, really—I just don't know enough about the economics of it. For what it's worth, Acronym refuses to move production to China, so that could be a serious factor. Veilance prices are certainly lower, but Veilance isn't quite as complicated as Acronym... and a lot of it is now made in China. People who have been paying attention will also notice that Veilance patterns have become less complicated over time. It's depressing because Acronym's aesthetic lineage is deeply rooted in the counter-cultural... and yet, these days, it's mostly rich Chinese kids wearing it. It's doubly depressing because there really isn't anyone stepping up to fill the void, from a design perspective; I mean, there are certainly lots of knock-offs, brands trying to emulate the aesthetic... but how many are following the design process and taking time to think about problems in the way that Acronym does? Acronym has opened my eyes to a whole way of thinking through the design process—it is, in a very subtle way, didactic. That's good design. I'm just not seeing that from 99% of the technical clothing being produced today.

    How does this work?

    Never mind.

    Honestly, if it was Gore-Tex Pro in that colourway and at that price... I'd cop. But fuck man, paclite? Shit's sticky af.
  14. Acronym.

    Probably a small run honestly. I'll I wanted as a black J1A-GT. Gore-tex Pro. Nothing fancy. No neon, no paclite.
