    You're kidding, right? A movie trailer very often features clips, sounds, and cuts that don't appear in the final film. The trailer is an advert for the movie—it's incredibly simplistic to say it's simply the movie but smaller. But, maybe more importantly—why are you in the Acronym thread complaining that people want to know what the new Acronym products are? We don't know why Errolson decided to clamp down on subnet membership, but if I had to bet I'd say it had more to do with guys like 1K drawing "inspiration" from unreleased stuff for his own products.

    I dunno man, I think a lot of stuff from that era makes a lot of sense, aesthetically, these days... what with the explosion of interest in “vintage” Lang, Sander, Prada more generally... I’m very tempted by that bag. It’s always been on my list, but that’s a bit pricy.

    There's also the erlsn-approved Japanese brand Claustrum.

    Most brands won't be "techwear" exactly, but Mittan might have what you're after (though they're dealing more in longer jackets rather than shirts, generally). You can usually snag them at an okay price on fromjapan or some other Japanese proxy site. No supplier in NA that I know of. In general, you can usually find more affordable options by browsing a magazine like GO OUT—I might have a look through my issues later, since I've also been considering getting something similar.

    So I’ve always been a bit baffled by the measurements given for Acronym’s sizing charts. Always assumed I was a medium, but when I tried on the J58 I found it too tight through the chest, and I’ve had a similar problem with some SISP jackets. So my question is: do you guys take the same size in Veilance that you do in Acronym? What about mainline Arc’teryx? I’m solidly a medium in both, so it would help to know how the two brands compare. One guy told me he sizes up for Acronym vs. Arc’teryx.

    So I’ve been on the hunt for a 3A-5TS-style hip belt for my 3A-1. First I spoke to Bagjack, and they told me they wouldn’t be able to make me one like what they make for Acronym (the hip belts for Bagjack are different)—I have to assume there’s some sort of contract preventing them from doing it. They told me to talk to Acronym instead. I just heard back from Acronym, and they’re saying they can’t sell the hip belt separately, and I’d have to buy the 5TS to get it. I’m bummed out, but I also have to wonder what would happen if someone lost/damaged the hip belt for their 5TS or 6TS. Would they not be able to purchase a replacement?

    Gotta say, I had the chance to handle the Stealth Parka today, and it blew my mind. Really beautiful and inventive stuff.

    I enjoyed the actual interview bits. Some new info (for me at least) in there.

    Acronym.

    I'm not saying anyone's wrong or anything, but I still don't understand. He's very vague about the nature of the problem being discussed here—but I'm also having a hard time separating that part of the quote from its context (about design stealing). Acronym's not stealing designs, at least as far as I know. It's true, there have been lots of re-releases, but aren't those what many people have been asking for? More 3As? Many people haven't had the chance to grab this stuff till now. Reissuing old stuff (price increased or not) is not the same as stealing a jacket design. Honestly, if it were me, I'd ride the hype, make the easy money off re-releases, and save my new ideas for when things calmed down and I actually needed them.

    Yeah, that quote is about the Gucci ripoff though. What does that have to do with price hikes and materials?
