    Also, if you really are Lamborghini's interior designer, then the hexagons everywhere are played out, hiding the start button underneath a flip-top switch like it's a fighter plane is the automotive equivalent of wearing an Ed Hardy t-shirt, the UI on your infotainment system is utterly hideous, and those toggle switches were shit when Mini started doing them, they're still shit when you do them. 

    Signed, a man who gets paid to drive and write about Lamborghinis.

    I've only been with Lamborghini for close to a year now, and I am very soon leaving for a competitor. I will agree with everything you just said, it's actually why I was brought in. To help speculate where they were failing. Also, big things in 2022 from Lamborghini with ByBorre for all you shit talkers.

    So no, I wasn't claiming I work for Lamborghini with a Lamborghini assplug lodged deep in my anal crevice the same way all you ACR diehards do I'm sure. (Only available on Subnet)

    FlipFlop, I'm sure you'll gain more insight for Lamborghini interior once your dad dies and his full bank account is at your exposure. I'm assuming you still have a monthly credit limit until you're 50 years old?

    @mariahscarry if you don't think the J1e adds any type of innovation, then I'm sorry to say you don't have the "eye for technical attention" you think you do. 

    I'm an interior designer at Lamborghini..

    "The pattern-making and articulation is what really sets ACR apart, but these are technical details that are largely "invisible" to the naked eye, and even more so to the consumer that has no idea about garment construction to begin with."

    "I guarantee most people don't even understand half the words he used (ThatSlapz), let alone why changes to them make a garment better, worse, or different. The devil is in the details for any hobby--garments are no different."

    I'll quote these two parts.

    The pattern-making and articulation does NOT set acronym apart, there are actually many brands that execute exactly what ACR achieves. And almost all designs used by ACR are not original, they are inspired by past military/workwear garments which continue to inspire many other brands as well. So to say it "sets ACR apart" is naive. And also to say it's naked to the eye is obviously apparent, isn't that why we're all on this page in the first place? is because we share the same eye for technical attention that E does.

    Something I didn't put in my first post, but you basically just highlighted it perfectly for me to touch on, is that the J1E has no new innovation(Hat excluded but...LOL). It's literally an update where E is attempting to just expand further on where the J1A design fails. And that being said, it's still the same pockets/zippers/systems maybe arranged in a more accessible and convenient way, but that somehow took almost 20 years to finally figure out? and oh also costs over $2,000...

    My statement is this, I'll pay $600 for any recycled ACR piece any fucking day, new fabrics, new colors, new bags, the detail is unparalleled. E could literally start a membership service for $2,000 a year where i'm guaranteed a couple pieces and I would sign up immediately.  But with $1,000-$2,000 pricing, I want some new innovation, I really don't think that's too much to ask. I guess i'm just asking for more than the normal consumer.

    Gravity pockets are essentially useless for their intended purpose

    Interops is HIGHLY situational IMO

    Forcelock is not very practical (if at all) in the day and age of wireless earbuds

    You are actually one of the only people here who's opinion I value, so I want to talk about this really quick.

     

    My biggest takeaway when i look at anything new from ACR is, "Why do I need/want this?/ What does this design accomplish that my other jackets/pants/bags can't?/ and Is it timeless?" These are the three most important questions to me when evaluating a new season. First question is easy to beat, any new ACR collection feels fresh and amazing, no argument there. BUT normally nothing gets past the second question...

    And also, to expand on why I believe ACR is a "non-functioning functional" is because the end results of the systems/subsystems are only "alternatives" to other brands. Sure I can make my phone shoot out of my sleeve like assassin blades, but couldn't I also just take it out of my normal jacket pocket? Or, sure escape-zip looks super cool...but couldn't i just unzip my normal jacket zipper? If anything you'll have a faster execution using the normal jacket than trying to undo the gravity pocket buttons and not let your phone fly out of your hand, or by just unzipping your jacket versus needing to zip it off in an "alternative" way. And I can literally go through every system for you (forcelock, interops, jacketsling) and share similar opinions, but just ask yourself. Is the function actually something no other jacket can accomplish, and even more, is the experience/process actually fluent or that much faster?

    My analogy. When I'm paying "Ferrari" pricing, I need Ferrari performance. Not someone swindling me a Nissan with fake Ferrari emblems.

     

     


  5. ALL jackets should come with a 2-way zip...imo. I swear E is the master of non-functioning functional clothing. From my personal experience, most ACR systems/subsystems fall very short from their marketed offerings. I've never really considered myself a die hard ACR fan, only someone who really appreciates intuitive design w/ function. I can think of a couple designers today who are executing "function" far superior to E.

    Is it just me or has anyone else noticed the recent spike in fakes / scams being posted to Grailed? 

    Seem to all be coming from similar accounts all with very alike names, been receiving offers from the same ones as well, not sure I've ever seen so many posted in such a short period of time.

    Just curious to see what others think- 

    I think the amount of irony that your new sufu account resembles the same as those you are describing on Grailed to be downright hilarious.

    3A-2 arrived today. Not exactly a new piece, so I doubt I have much to add, but it’s interesting to me that these bags haven’t been updated at all for current technology in the way that the pants often have been. The pocket within the main pocket of the bag isn’t really big enough for most things—pens, maybe, or keys, but it’s a bit too snug for a phone or wallet.

    The strap is also very, very long, but for those lefties out there, the entire bag can be flipped around by taking the strap out and switching it around.

    The black x-pac is nice, though honestly I’m all about the olive—both my 3A-1 and 3A-5TS are olive, and it’s aged really well. But I guess olive doesn’t sell as well as black does?

    Arrived for me too. I was a little skeptic about the black x-pac as well, but so far so good. I really enjoy the contrast with the buckle hardware and the pure darkness of the black x-pac. I've also always wanted 3a2 in x-pac, the perfect combo imo.

    The strap itself feels cheaper than my laminate 3a2, but same length and measurements overall it seems. I've always liked how long this shoulder strap is compared to other 3a models.

    I personally love the smaller interior pocket, yes it doesn't hold our giant cellphones, but i think that's what this bag itself is kinda for (or i always personally use the back mesh pocket). The interior pocket which measures 5.5" deep however works excellently for pens, airpods, various cards (card holder if you use one), cash or coins, trinkets and totems, it even stores my glasses perfectly and well protected. And as for the main compartment, I'm always taken back but just how much it can store. I could literally come up with 100 examples of carrying capacity. I just walked to my friend's place with my switch, two extra joycons, aoku 160616 mod (fully loaded), glasses, keys and wallet. Hopefully decent enough example, and no shoulder pain!

    Great bag, can't wait to see how this new x-pac ages.

    It also comes with a force lock magnet tape.

    Where did you find this info? it says it has Acronym Sound but i'm pretty sure that simply referring to the wire escape at the top.

    Looking at the product photos, it looks like the J47-GT is getting interops next time around.

    that's J76-GT, i'm pretty sure


  14. Can anyone help me understand the difference between J47 and J47R? I know it’s the Raccagni or “revised” edition, but the only differences I can notice from online photos and descriptions are the logo tapes being parallel on the R edition, much appreciated!

    and whoever owns the factory matters 100% more than the country it’s in. 

    This exactly, and for those of you doubting errolson and his lack of research and attention, shame on you.
