  1. Just received my P23A-DS. The waist size is humongous on first impression, but after tightening it works. Definitely have to double loop (see below) if I don't want to activate the "self-loosening" device. But once the double loop is done, it is perfect, doesn't loosen even if I am jumping or running.

    sum1 talk 2 me bout the built in tightening mechanism of the p23a and p25h lollllllllll

    best feature: self loosens while you're walking down the street

    are you serious? that doesn't sound very ergonomic to me... maybe in the end I might be forced to add my own belt loops... haha

    I was initially bummed because P23A-DS in S was sold out and I had to buy a M instead. But the waist is so huge anyway that I'm wondering if it matters. The cinches work great, looks and feels much better than, say, P10's in M would.

    I am in the exact same situation, was hoping to get a S size. Was stuck in the Hanon site jam at the start of the drop, went to the acrnm site and only M size P23A-DS left, so I copped that. I also have a P10TS-DS in M but it is a little loose so I have to wear it with a belt; so I'm a little worried at how much leeway I can actually push that draw-cord waistband of the P23... anyway, I received shipping notification from acrnm. We will see in a few days time...

  4. I heard from a Ink shop employee during my last trip there, that before the day they launch the sale of SS17 acrnm, there is a long queue of people camping outside their door. When the shop open they came in and asked to buy the items (when the apparels were still in shipment boxes that just arrived apparently). Trying to be positive, but many of the hot items might be out of sizes by the time AW17 goes online on their site.

  5. what a fierce keyboard battle... I copped a P23A-DS in M on the main site... although I wanted a S... Spring Summer I also copped P10TS-DS in M and its okay with a belt. I'll make do I guess... and I am totally broke now :ohmy:

  6. I just received my pair of size US8 KMTR from sneakersnstuff. I usually wear a size 41 for boots, and a US 8.5 for sneakers and running shoes. This pair fits me just right. I am quite in love with the design, especially how the magnetic buckle just locks the excess fabric from the tongue in place. It feels very sturdy and not flimsy at all personally. Definitely a light pair of spring/summer commuter shoes to do all sorts of things in the city. The only part of the shoe that felt "cheaper" to me was the draw cord on the heels. Having own a pair of Acronym prestos, the clip on cords at the back of the presto definitely felt much higher quality than the ones on these. But the Prestos are also priced way higher.

  7. I once bought a BNWT J25-WS at Yahoo Japan Auctions for 400 USD. That was cheap, and there was only one other person bidding with me.
    Most of the time though, the prices are horrendously expensive, with the exception of the Prestos, which are consistently cheaper than grailed.

  8. Just received my J47R-GT (small) from The Commissionary. This is my first Acronym Hard Shell, and I am more than happy with it, and in some ways I can understand why it is was the most expensive piece in SS17. It is really understated. The construction, minimalist design and functionality is just amazing. I have also been wearing the J48-BR (small) and it is the most comfortable hoodie I have ever owned, although it is admittedly expensive for a cotton hoodie, but no regrets, I took it on a long distance flight and it felt like a blanket over my skin. I was caught in the rain and I just threw a J25-WS (medium) over the J48, and it worked perfectly as a rain shell.

  9. Hi, am new to the forum but have been following this thread for months. I just purchased a J47R-GT online, and eagerly waiting for it to come.
    I have searched the thread but cannot find much information on this. Does anyone know what are is new in this iteration of the J47 as compared to the older versions?

    The item description reads "New reverse seam allowance construction". Does anyone know what it means?
