  1. The ACRONYM Community Sales Thread

    Hilarious that @chunglove‘s only contribution to the community after getting dickslapped is to log on every couple weeks and neg rep for no discernible reason. Stay classy brah.

    @nesherman I think you just got flamed by a dust bowl era octogenarian

    The best flames always get doused by the grailed mods...

    Hah, you do realize this is the ACR thread right?

    What’s up with the ridiculously high waist on those chinos? Looks like something a throwaway henchman on a boat in a 60’s era Bond film would be costumed in.

    I agree with you @junkie_dolphin. I’m at split odds honestly with this whole cultural appropriation concept. I feel it’s widely advertised by individuals who aren’t being subject to said appropriation and also aren’t subject to whatever ills that are entailed in said so called wrongdoing. There is a line that I haven’t seen yet, but I feel that appropriating is often mistaken for integration, celebration and acceptance of certain cultural features. There’s so many layers to the tech-ninj concept, and the origins their in. In fact the article even goes so far (IMO) in the first couple paragraphs to imply that the term Tech Ninja itself is bordering on racist. Which I find to be patently ridiculous. The amount of cultural influences inherent in the design of the many Designers mentioned, is either partially or completely unknown to us or the writer. In fact I’d go so far as to say the cultural influences that cause us to do and say the things in our everyday life are far to numerous and extant as a whole to reliably predict at times. The compartmentalization of every developing trend can be exhausting to the viewer and offtimes suffocating to the developer of said trend. Everything is under a brutal microscope nowadays. Sometimes for the very good. Other times for the very opposite.

    This article felt more like an assignation of guilt as opposed to a discussion on an ‘emergent trend’. Very disjointed, and reaches too far without a real focus. I kept scrolling down not realizing that said article had ended...? Meh.

    Huh, the fine print on the main website last I checked said you had to have a valid service ID and they’d cut you off if they caught you selling to your bros or whatever. Maybe it’s only in the US or something stupid like that...

    @Inkinsurgent I’ve been drooling over LEAF gear for the last year and half. Sucks that’s it’s Police/Military access only.

    @Cornuto Can’t say I agree on the wool insulation comment. But different strokes and all that... Funny you posted that link as I was researching the PCU system this past fall. Almost picked up some of the mid-layers.

    @KamikazeSave your cash and invest in a merino wool sweater, or merino/synthetic long sleeve. I wear a heavy duty LL Bean merino full zip sweater with my ACR shells and I’m good down to the low 40’s. When it gets a bit chillier I throw on a wool Filsons vest over the sweater, and when it’s stupid cold I wear a Tilak Poutnik powerstretch fleece as a base layer. I was just trudging through knee deep snow with high winds at 9 degrees Fahrenheit and was nice and toasty. Contrary to what was stated above merino keeps you warmer when wet than man made materials, which shouldn’t really be an issue under the proper shell, and also helps regulate body temp comfort very efficiently.

    Those Salomon’s are hawt. Almost regret ordering those AF1 boots last night... Must curb my sneaker buying excessive-ness. I’ve already bought four pairs in the last month and a half. Is there a twelve step program for sneaker addicts?
