    Acronym.

    You could ask for a small payment...or at least ask for the consumer to cover shipping. I'm sorry but if you can't offer solid customer service I don't think you should be running a business. Brands get away with it all the time and it's wrong and irresponsible. My ACR customer service experience wasn't terrible but I had to send 3 emails to get a response, and that was just for a jacket sling so. I really hope they can improve their customer support.

    @Dolphinski have you bought their 100 year pants? It seems like a well thought out pair of trousers but I'm skeptical of the brand since they seem "click baity" so to speak. But those pants remind me so much of the original, golden beige ACG cargo pant.

    Wasn't sure if I should post it here or Acronym BST, but wtb ACG Cargo pants 2015-2017, size M-L any color.

    Acronym.

    @wexler I've been considering P10 but they're somewhat price prohibitive- guess that comes with the territory though. I'm not very good with pants measurements, and like you say the rise on ACR pants are so varied (drop crotch, high waisted, etc) it's kind of difficult for me to interpret. Basically I'm size 30 waist (hip really) 34" inseam. The lack of any real archival for Acronym products makes me finding reliable measurements for older releases especially difficult, though I often assume older = bigger, at least that's true for the more skater "baggy" fit styles of like 08. Again, appreciate all the replies!

    Acronym.

    I don't think Acronym is going anywhere (out of business), at least not anytime soon. Brands have to evolve and Acronym seems to have evolved into a bit more of a flashy, overt brand rather than the more subtle "anti-consumerism" brand it was before I got into it. I noticed it mostly with the release of the Volt jackets, but I don't think it's much to complain about. I think the new stuff is great, steep price but I can't speak for the quality. All I'm waiting for is a "throwback" J-1A with the old style flak pocket and in Stotz, I love my EJ-1A but time has not been kind to the Epich fabric in certain places. A quick question, does anyone know of any Acronym trousers with an inseam that is longer than 32 inches? I'm way too tall for most of them, my P9-S are about 3 inches too short so I have to wear them with my DAF-1's or I look ridiculous, might get them tapered so I can just wear them a bit below the waist and look okay. Also, anyone know if there's a method to restore the "hook" on aged velcro? The soft side is okay, but the hooks are a bit bent outwards. I was thinking maybe carefully applying heat and pressing down? Thanks, hope we all get something cool next release.

    Acronym.

    Heh, I never had issues with the sling on my J32-GT or J44L-GT but I think the issue lies in how the loops are on the EJ-1A. Mine is exceptionally old (2005ish?) and the loops are flipped the opposite way around from newer jackets. When the sling is done being used and I put the jacket on, the sling is just too long and the buckle too heavy for it to return to its "correct" position. Both my other ACR jacket slings always did, so I'm kind of assuming the sling has been changed slightly iteration to iteration. I do have the original sling so I'll compare them. I know it's kind of a stupid issue. Maybe I'm wrong, but here's a simple shot regardless. I appreciate the help. Edit #2: nope, the jacket slings have the same length so I guess this is just something I'll have to learn to compensate for.

    Does anyone mind taking a photo of the correct sling setup for the external points (I'd imagine internal are the same) on the J1A? I'm having issues with my EJ-1A with a new Acronym sling and I'm starting to wonder if it's because they've changed the length of the sling over the years. But I won't lie, the correct setup has always escaped me, the sling doesn't really like to return to correct position without me having to do it myself. I've tried looking through tons of the release photos and I haven't really found anything concrete. Thanks!

    Veilance buy sell trade is within the Urban Techwear Buy Sell Trade thread, man. Anything that isn't Acronym and yet fits into the "techwear" definition will be included in that thread. Hope this helps.

    Really miss being able to sling my jacket in the FL heat, if you've got one let me know!
  11. Haha, my bad. I thought I was clear enough when I referenced Veilance and Lululemon. I mean articulated as in the clothing is sewn in a way as to improve mobility, and free range of motion. I don't like regular jean cuts, simply not my preference. Just curious what the options are out there, as denim isn't (normally) stretchy so I was curious if someone had done cuts/sewing similar to those two brands in order to compensate for that.
  12. Are there any heavily articulated cut jean brands? I'm looking for something Veilance/Lululemon level articulation, nothing insane like Acronym. I really want to give denim a try.

    WTB: Acronym jacket sling, either green or black is fine. Acronym isn't replying to my emails and I really miss my jacket sling, current one is too old to support the weight of epic cotton. Thank you.
