  1. Acronym.

    I just received the J68-S white colorway size S from the mail. Posting my first impressions. The cut is very form fitting, more so than all my other acronym soft/hard shells. The Stotz fabric is smooth and silky to touch, very comfortable feeling, very comfortable to wear. The white color is milky as some have mentioned, and i definitely think it will be difficult to keep the color pristine. But i think aging the piece is part of the deal with a color like this. I just hope that the white will not turn yellow over time, which will be worst than having some dirt or use marks. The jacket can be worn in a variety of ways. Sling and acronym collar tapes come in both white and black. I am not too fond of the contrast, so i will likely have it all white. Overall i really love this piece, in terms of the pattern, its my second favorite to last winter’a J56-S which is my favorite ACR to date, in terms of functionality, comfort and looks. I don’t think as a white jacket, its wearability is compromised. It is not as attention grabbing as the volt colorway. I am very happy with the purchase.

    I just received the J59TS-CH in the mail today. Writing my first impressions. The oversized fit is very obvious; I wear all size S acronym both top and pants, and this one is at least one size bigger, the shoulders falling slightly off where size S usually lands. I can confidently say that even if I wear an XS it will still have a slight oversized look. The cinch cord is very important to the versality of the jacket and it enables more different ways of wearing this. Pockets are luxuriously big and utilitarian. I like how an oversized bomber look is sort of an oxymoron and contradition in itself, almost Rick Owens-esque in its design philosophy. It is not a jacket that one will fall for immediately, but given time I think the subtleties of its unique pattern will be appreciated. The CH fabric however (this is my first CH piece) is not for summer... at least wear I live. I am based in Tokyo and it is 26-32 degree celsius now. I will not wear this piece now, not until fall. But in winter, I can see how this piece can work as a softshell which can accommodate thick mid layers. The fabric is rugged and tough, feels more solid than stotz and DS. I do not have time to take nice pics at the moment, will post in a week or two.

    1. Yes it has internal jacketsling loops 2. I think it is really important detail for the aesthetic of the piece, also makes it easy to keep the jacket open and airy in warmer days. As a hardware it is okay.

    I received my J66-GT yesterday. Posting my first impressions. 1. It feels light and breathable, like a real summer goretex jacket. I will much prefer this to the WS fabric. It feels thinner and lighter than my J47R-GT which i purchased during SS17. Strange cause the 3L goretex pro fabric should be the same. I suspect its because of the lack of the pockets on the sleeves and on the upper body, and the hood is not stowable. 2. It is definitely less techy than other GT jackets, less pockets, less features. Probably the most minimalist Shell jacket from acronym i own. For all its missing features, it had an amazing pocket which i loved. Its big, the zipper design holds its shape well (which actually looks nice), and can be accessed both from the top and side. I can fit my iphone7+ in the inner pocket easily, and probably can fit much more than that. 3. Main zippers are ykk, feels less substantial than the raccagini zippers on my J47R-GT. But still great in itself. 4. The focus of the design is on the reverse seams which are everywhere. They came already a little frayed, and the pattern is made to accentuate these lines where the fraying takes place. Its more fashionable than it is functional (if you compare it to the older acronyms) 5. The hood has an amazing design. I like it. But i regret that it could not be stowed. 6. Its a keeper for me. Simply because i love the amazing pockets.

    Sometimes I really wish I could pull off that volt colourway, it is really cool. But just not my personality. I think that the possibility of fraying is what really caught me for that piece - cause it is such an antithesis of the high-technology 3L Goretex fabric.

    I paid 1373.18 Euros inclusive of shipping to Japan. But I know I'm gonna get hit with a massive import tax...

    When I got into the main website at exactly 17:00 berlin time, there was only M size left in the J1A-GTPL, so I assume the S-sizes were all copped at the subnet... pity. I went for the J66-GT instead, though unsure of the huge pockets at first; but the more I look at the pictures I thought the geometry is actually what made the piece interesting - and functional. So I pulled the trigger. Will review when I receive the item

    Pretty certain that the optical glasses are Mykita judging from the hinges. I wear them.

    Since we've been on the topic of x-pac, and i also just received my olive 3A-1, i thought it be cool to compare the material with three other bags i own: 1. Olive X-pac 3A-1 2. Black foil 3-TS 3. White Mountaineering x Porter backpack "X-Pac-look-alike" waterproof material (my fav backpack) 4. Porter X-Pac backpack love them all

    I do look forward to greater innovation in both bags and apparell rather than just a color change. I do think that in the past seasons, the ACG line is much bolder and exciting in the way it tries to reinvent itself with each release. The KMTR sneakers is a perfect example, a completely new way to wear shoes for me. I was in Eliminator store in Tokyo last night, and they have a new collaboration with bagjack where they added their own details in their small messenger (around the size of the 8TS?), while not so radical because it really is just customization, these are details I really like. Magnetic clips, webbing, reinforced handle, laminate material (same as the acr laminate according to the sales person), external pouch that can be be velcro on the inside or attached onto the webbing, interior and strapping system is pretty much identical to the acr bags. Its pretty dope to me. I really hope there are more surprises in the next acr drop!

    +rep for @Xu Jianfeng. Purchased a pair of Black-foil MZ3 from him. Communicative seller, fast shipping. Would buy again!

    Wow that took a long time if you purchased on the drop day itself. Do you know why they took so long?
  14. Acronym.

    No definitely not... but I wear them with some stacking, not in a ridiculous sorta way. I think the picture can be a bit deceptive because I am standing just right in front of the mirror to take the photo, so my legs look longer than they are, like a wide angle sorta view.
  15. Acronym.

    It's M size. I am 1.68m. It is still slightly long for me, so there is some stacking, but I can make do with that (as I did with the P10 M size). In the first picture, some of the extra fabric I pulled over the ankle area of the prestos, which works for me.
