  1. The ACRONYM Community Sales Thread

    Would you be willing to share any details? I’m always curious to hear customer service related stories with acr, since I’ve heard wildly conflicting feedback regarding their customer service standards.

    You're definitely not wrong... but with the most recent drop sitting for as long as it did, i'd consider that reason enough for some optimism.
  3. Acronym.

    Yep, that's correct. Gotcha. Thanks! Yeah, you're probably right about that. One other thing that might help everyone when making a purchase, and isn't immediately obvious, is that you can avoid Paypal's jacked up currency conversion rate by opting to let your bank/card issuer handle the conversion. When going through the Paypal checkout process, look for a link that says something along the lines of "conversion options". I saved about $50 CAD by opting for my Visa to be charged in EUR and letting the bank do the conversion directly.

    I did send them a response to my invoice email but there’s no indication that that made any difference. Didn’t get a response back. The funny thing about it all, now that I think about it, is that the P10’s are listed on the mother site as having been made in Switzerland, which is not a member state of the EU, and therefore wouldn’t be subject to the CETA rules (must be manufactured in and shipped from an EU member state) but happens to have its own free-trade agreement with Canada *shrug*. Edit: Actually, just checked the COD notice attached to the package, the country of origin is listed as CZ, so maybe it did get processed under CETA after all.

    Things have been pretty good lately so finally decided to pick something up off the mothersite. Wanted something that I could wear out and to work so settled on a pair of P10-DS and damn are they superb. First time encountering the DS material in person and I'm loving the stretch and hang of the fabric. Being 6'4", any stacking below the knee is non-existent, but the tapering down to the ankle is the narrowest of any pant I've worn and I'm loving it. Secondary confirmation for any Canadians here that the duties are, in-fact, nil coming across the border. Just the 13% HST and about $10 brokerage fee for UPS.

    You are correct! Too bad, I must have been asleep when that drop happened. The P30's have the right drop depth compared to last year's P25's (way too low for me), but the way the pant cuffs rise towards the backside and hug the shin in the front is kind of.. meh? Would have preferred them hanging in a more neutral/balanced way.
  7. Acronym.

    That J47A-WS is looking mighty interesting (Spotted in the P30-CH product photos for those wondering).
  8. Acronym.

    Can anyone confirm for me the outseam measurements (with and without length of cuff) on P23A-DS and P23TS-S in both size M and L? I've been scouring retail sites and wayback machine but have come up short on measurements that seem realistic, or that are clear if they include the cuff or not... I'm also looking for the waist measurements on the DS ones, laid-flat, with the waistband cinched and fully loose. I'm trying to compare 'real-world' measurements to inform a purchase in early 2018. I'm tall (34" inseam) and skinny (32" waist), so confirming the right sizing has been tricky in the past. These measurements would be helpful. Thanks in advance and much appreciated! Thanks! I got what I needed. Shout out to @0.42k for the assist!

    I dont think so... And Colette is done-zo now.. but maybe in the future direct from acr? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    J28 just bumped up a spot in my to-buy list with this use-case. Lol. Nice fit man.
  11. Acronym.

    Yeah, I’ve been keeping my eye on this since I first heard about it. Too early to say how Acr will implement this new tech, but my mind immediately went to: “Acronym is making their own footwear for FW18!!!”. *shrug* I guess we’ll just have to wait and see?
  12. Acronym.

    Agree. I never use the ones on my GT-J34.

    Wondering what people's preferred method of printing/transferring graphics onto webbing is? I did a couple quick searches but I'm not finding anything helpful.
  14. Acronym.

    This is the first I'm hearing of this and this is crazy awesome. Has anyone ordered anything recently from EU and can confirm they didnt pay taxes on the import? If so, this is actually a game changer for ordering from like, End with their free shipping... (lol, until Brexit i guess...)
