    Acronym.

    P38-E arrived this morning, tried on at home. Very light, nowhere as heavy as my DS pants. E fabric is a joy to wear especially in Spring. The pockets don’t pull open as effortlessly as Erlsn did in the demo videos (or maybe I am just clumsy), but they are positioned perfectly and very utilitarian. The silver fly zip is not as prominently awkward because of the equally shiny waist pocket zips on both aides, so i consider this iteration of P38 as a significant improvement. Because of the waist pockets, I am thinking whether I should wear them slightly higher than usual, a little above the hips. I like the tension cords that can be used to tighten the pants (so i can wear it without belt), but I am unsure if it using it repeatedly over time the stretch will loosen. Haven’t had a chance to take it outside yet, will take some pictures when I do :)

    Acronym.

    No aux zips. It is certainly more Tilak than acronym, even the exterior texture of the GT fabric felt different, more rugged than the Acronym shells. But there is the same dna running through the piece in its design approach.

    Acronym.

    Acronym x Tilak evolution jacket arrived this morning. It came with a small booklet with pictures of the jacket. I had never worn Tilak before. Before Acronym, I was mostly wearing Arcteryx (about a decade ago or more?) and this evolution jacket felt a lot like the Arcteryx's flagship Alpha SV jacket. When worn it feels really like a true blue mountaineering piece where every design element is completely utilitarian and not just for the looks. When zipped up all the way the lower half of the face is sheltered the same way as the SV jacket, which is very comfortable. I love the velcro mechanics on the cuffs, its really convenient and easy to use. I wore Acronym size S, and this jacket in size S fits me perfectly. I will keep it

    I am 5'5 and I wear a P23A-DS in size M and P30A-DS in size S. Both of which I can tighten till it hold up. So I find it strange that you cannot tighten it fully. I ordered the P31A-DS in size S, waiting for it to arrive from mothersite. Shipping to Asia is somewhat slower.

    I've purchased two acronym pieces which were fake from Yahoo auction over the years. But they were well made enough that I did not realise immediately. On the other hand, I've also had 3-4 authentic acronym transactions on Yahoo. You should really scrutinise the post before buying. A brand new acronym item at significantly lower-than-retail price will certainly be fishy.

    I think the J68-PL in RAF looks sick. Really nice color. Personally not too fond of the bi-color J1Bs..

    For me the most interesting piece this drop is the J87-WS. I dig how it drapes at the back, and the front jacket sling?? Need some demonstrating how utilitarian it is gonna be. Although I probably prefer a tougher fabric to the WS, like the E fabric, so it is not just a raincoat-like pull-over.

    Some close-ups of the BKAI-013 that was just released by Pure Blue Japan recently. See the AI in the inverse rolled-up sides of the cuffs. Amazing texture as always. http://pbj-jeans.ru.shopserve.jp/SHOP/BKAI-013.html

    Pure Blue Japan

    Hi guys, this is my first time posting on this thread (been mostly over at the techwear/acronym thread). But I have been a long time denim head, and I thought I like to share my thoughts about something from the PBJ Harajuku shop just two days ago. I treated myself to their BKAI-013, which was really amazing to see in person. On the website and their instagram, the AIBK-013 looked really beautiful, but that BKAI-013 is truly special and one of a kind although I am quite skeptical about the color which is more grey than black which is why I had to go down to the shop to see it for myself. I had their AI-003 for a couple of years, and the texture of the fabric on the skin is identical, but the color of the BKAI is really somewhat like a Chinese/Japanese ink painting. It is not dark or deep, but it has that wabi-sabi quality to it that really attracts me. Hard to describe until you actually handled the fabric in person. There will be little to no fades on both the sumi and AI, according to the man attending to me in the store. When I asked which he will recommend (between BKAI and AIBK), he immediately replied it will be the BKAI. I can't wait to really break it in. http://pbj-jeans.ru.shopserve.jp/SHOP/BKAI-013.html Since some of you spoke about the Oni, I thought I briefly mention it. I've wore it for two winters, and the Oni 20oz BKBK fabric is hell of a comfortable, the black is beginning to turn grey at high impact points, but its one of my favorite jeans at the moment (compared to my Samurai, Kuro and ironheart). https://www.denimio.com/oni-902zr-bkbk-20oz-secret-black-denim-high-rise-relax-tapered-oni902zrbk.html But I only wear it in colder weather, so for now BKAI will be my go to jeans this summer

    Acronym.

    I had it since last Summer, it is my only Acronym "long" shell (though not quite long really) and I am quite pleased with it. It is quite water resistant in spite of the thin material, drapes really well, and I like the roominess of the pockets. Though I did find the pockets positioning slightly awkward, the lower ones too low and the top ones too high for me to put my hands in comfortably. But it is a minor inconvenience. Almost a year later, it still feels as new as it did last year. I have yet to washed it. It is too thin for winter, so it only lasted till late Autumn for me.
