    Soooo I kinda wanna find a means to secure the loose strap on my jacket sling after pulling it taught. I’m not big on the hangy strap type thing. I have a bit of knowledge of some of those type things from other shit I’ve used that secures the same style straps to keep them from swinging free but don’t have anything close to the words for them. Anybody have any leads? I’m looking at you @Dani

    J36 is true to size. Dunno why there’s peeps still saying otherwise.

    Hood needs to be Vanta too. Weird head vibes abound.

    You gotta post prices dude. Forum rules. And WTT means you have something to trade. Is it the above items?

    I am sending back my ACR specs tomorrow, might have to just go ahead and flip that over into a 3ts... hmmmm... Can anybody comment on the finish on the green X-PAC, and or PM some pics in different light?

    I’ve owned my 3ts laminate for close to 3 years, worn it almost daily, it’s still in excellent condition, works with almost the entirety of my wardrobe and I’m super happy with it overall. Buuuuuut I still have a constant itch for that damn green x-pac 3ts...

    @meccaNIZM I agree with the majority of your assessment. They do feel very front heavy, and I think they would’ve benefited more from wearing directly on the nose bridge as opposed to the pads. That would’ve meant a little redesign I think, but to go with such a heavy forward leaning frame and such light temples- the nose pads just don’t feel that great to me. It feels like they’re balancing as opposed to resting on the bridge of my nose. That’s probably partially due to the dimensions of my skull overall to a degree I’m sure, but more so the design. Even having traditional temples would help with this. I grew up wearing eyeglasses from a very young age and have owned quite a few pairs of higher end shades if that gives any clarity. On a completely other note- the styling is just a bit too exaggerated for my taste in the all black frames I purchased. It’s nerd-core on steroids. I’m sure some can and will pull it off but it just doesn’t suit my facial structure. I have a strong/heavy brow, dark/sunken eyes, dark/coarse hair and they just add too much weight overall. I’ve worn strong blocky frames before, but these just feel too much with the frame weight and the lenses size. The clip ons feel well made, but a bit fiddly and I can see it being a bit easy to scratch the frames with repeated use simply by handling the frames while donning and doffing. They actually almost slipped off the frames while I was putting them back in the protective plastic wrap. And yes- there is a noticeable gap while wearing if a strongish light source hits them at an angle. I can say with a good amount of surety that this is my least favorite ACR item that I’ve had the opportunity to handle up close. Nothing feels very Acronym about it to me. There’s no hidden awesomeness, no new take on an old norm, no subtle functionality, no tiny detail that is commonly overlooked, no build quality that feels like it’s been considered and tested. I’ve owned other ACR pieces that didn’t work for my personal aesthetics, but I’ve ALWAYS appreciated the overall design and form/function. These are literally just another pair of expensive sunglasses. YMMV?

    WITHDRAWN. Leaving post up for price reference purposes MINTY FRESH pair of F1-T-A The fit isn’t to my liking on these so I’m passing them along at cost. $711 PayPal F/F. If you want invoiced there’ll be an up charge as per usual. First class shipping via USPS is free in the continental U.S., if you’re looking for priority that’s another $10. Everybody else in the world needs to pony up. If these don’t find another home in the next 48 hours or so, I’m sending them back whence they came. No trades no offers. Just looking to pass these along to someone if they’re interested.

    Big thanks to @junkie_dolphin for going above and beyond in a recent transaction, much appreciated mah dude.

    In my use case I’m less concerned about the tint and more my prescription being a good fit for the style of frames in terms of how the frames fit and feel as my prescription is stronger and leads to slightly heavier lenses. All that being said, I may throw these things on and immediately hate the way they look on my own face. ACR needs to invest in that Warby Parker tech.

    I really dig all of the accessories but I’m honestly a bit disappointed they didn’t come with some variation of a tec sys compatible case like the futura collab.

    That’s what I’m gonna find out when mine show up. If not I’ll most likely either pass them along at cost or send back. I’ve been putting off getting a pair of frames for awhile and was right on the edge of ordering some mykitas when these popped up. The cost is similar as well as the materials. Not sure about build quality but I’d be highly surprised if the ACR specs aren’t in the same league.

    Hmmmm. Well, let’s see what the next hour or so looks like I guess. I won’t be that upset if it doesn’t go through honestly...

    Maybe? I just bought a pair about 10 minutes ago. At least I think I did?

    Private Messages are a fantastic way to ask these kind of questions... Much better than this method. Much. Much. Better.
