  3. So beyond the whole reseller bot thing @segue there’s also the repro market. If leaks get out early, the fast fashion fucks can start pumping shitty reps out into the wild sooner than later which can make authentication that much harder before more of the genuine pieces are in hand to set the metric so to speak. 

    DONT FUCKING LEAK YOU ANIMALS

    that would have been nice to know lol. thought it was after their email this morning

    It doesn’t matter either way. Your snitch post is bullshit regardless. 


  5. You’re missing my point. It’s not snitching to give a retailer a heads up that the info may have been leaked. This was before it was confirmed by Hotoveli that they were allowed to disseminate pics and before they sent out the emails this morning.

    Lol who tried to snitch

    You mean who tried to help keep shit on the DL where it belongs? Leaks just feed resellers and prime bot farming which fucks over the rest of us. 

    Also- the retailers are trusted to not leak, and can lose their selling privileges if they are found to have done so. I’m sure Hotoveli would prefer to know if their was a leak coming from their team due to said potential loss.

    Is the Epic (E) a lighter weight fabric compared to Stotz?

    The new E is a completely different fabric/weight than stotz, and yeah it’s quite a bit lighter as well.

    really when it comes down to it, people who are paying $1400 fat ones on a nylon jacket that is desirable because of cut, fit, and materials want to know how it will fit and have as much info as possible before purchasing.  if you are down to drop over a G on a coat that you can put on (but does not fit not how you want it to) thats on you. 

    you seem to act like you are extremely knowledgeable about this,  yet your answer is that the sizing doesn't change "that much".  That's your depth of knowledge after buying ACR for years? That doesn't tell anyone jack shit.  Is "that much" a quantifiable value that you can measure?

    lmao please let us know how one can measure "that much" ,  good sir , all of us are patiently waiting 

     

    Head size isn’t akin to literally any other body measurement in terms of sizing up on a garment. Yeah it may affect some minor shit in terms of other measurements on said garment. We’re not talking boutique derby’s. I repeat- how is this that difficult guys. I’m not getting bougie or entitled it’s just simple shit. I’m surprised how low this place has dipped lately in terms of straight up common sense. There’s a reason it’s approaching grave yard status around here and most of the old heads have peaced the fuck out/barely comment.

    Hood sizes will definitely get larger by size as you stated :)

    How do i know? I have produced and created patterns for countless hooded garments and parkas.

     

    easiest way to think about it -- if you move up from a medium to say, a large, generally speaking all the panels will be slightly expanded (some parts of the garment will increase in size more than other parts of the garment forsure, ie. the chest measurement will increase much more than the length of the jacket) , but without getting into it too deeply, this means that the actual opening to the hood will absolutely be larger because of the fact that the corresponding panels are larger (which means the neckline and collar area circumference or arc length will be different and need a larger hood to accommodate

    In simpler terms -- the actual "shape" of the hood may stay the same but it will sure fit you differently. 

     

    Those who think someone who wears a size small J32 could buy a size or 2 up and still have the hood fit the same, are

    not using much common sense..

    This whole thing got thrown way out of context. Nobody said or implied that the hood wouldn’t change drastically between S-L or whatever. However- It won’t change that much between a small and medium by and large in Acronym products. Which is what we’re discussing. Not other products. Somebody just felt the need to throw out random hood sizes based on various items in the Acronym catalog. Not the size differences in those actual items. I don’t get why this is so hard peoples.

    Are you sure? I've noticed differences between L and M hoods. My J32-GT barely got over my head (M) and my J44L-GT (L) fit perfectly. Though, the J32-GT has the more integrated fast hood, so that could be the root reasoning. Will confirm when I get my new piece in. It's not really something to care too much about though unless it makes articulation completely hindered. 

    Why are you comparing different sizes in different jackets? This post you reference is only referring to sizing up in a specified jacket...

    I have a medium J47A-GT but it feels like the sleeves are slightly too short and hood too small. I'm just wondering if it'll look derpy if I size up. 

    Post a fit pic

    I have short legs for my height. My wife who’s 5’4” with long legs has an inseam measurement that’s not terribly far from mine at 6’2”. Most of my length is in my torso. 

    I think for me the way to decide is to measure where the pants would hit based on the outseam measurements and try to see which would get me in the right length range when the extra cuffs are added on. 

    It sounds like due to your physical dimensions and the ofttimes complex and specific patterns that Acronym implements in their clothing that makes altering them questionable due to throwing off the fit and dimensions, that perhaps this brand may not be for you by and large.

    I think you may be forcing something that just won’t look right in the long run.

    To each their own of course....
