    The ACRONYM Community Sales Thread

    The J59-GT is still available in medium from the source: https://acrnm.com/products/J59-GT_SS19 I have one — big fan.

    Hi, still keeping an eye open for a J56-S, ideally RAF shipped from the EU.

    Random question: does anyone know where E got his iPhone case? Love the patina. Also, my 1yr old chewed the bottom of my UAG case off...

    Did not realize that was shared appreciate it. For those others who are lost:

    I’m admittedly paranoid about this. Is there a “definitive guide” to cleaning floating around somewhere on this forum? Particularly the GT Pro. Also, the Acronym CS folk said for the J58-ws one should clean it monthly-ish.

    There we go.

    Idle thought: I wonder when Acronym will release an N95 mask. Seems the right venn diagram of technical, ninja, and functional.

    Really appreciate this context. So basically, I shouldn’t stress wearing a messenger bag or backpack (though maybe not the sandpaper that is a goruck bag).

    Quick J58-WS update. Just arrived today. Fits exactly like I was hoping (I'm medium, 32 waist, 40 chest, 182cm 80kg). I can layer thinner things under it and it was fine (thinner fleece, but not a chunky sweater for example). Walking around I didn't find it bunched as someone mentioned. The warmth is great, and the pockets are huge. I don't have the previous version as a reference though, so comparisons are limited. My only hesitation is that the material feels quite delicate, including those in the pockets. I feel like that might give me pause at times (my philosophy is to wear things fairly hard, especially if they're expensive), but unsure what experience and perspective others might have with this material. Anyway, overall I've never owned an insulator that I've really enjoyed wearing independently, and have struggled a bit to find one that blends in with other pieces when layered. This definitely feels like it will fill that gap, but let's see.

    Hah, fancy seeing you here. I'm thinking Toronto in the not-too-distant future, so good context. Thank you!

    Oof, I'm curious to see how this will turn out. I'm getting a Medium (my normal size is Medium and I wanted something more close fitting), but it we will see. I can always size up. One piece I was curious to get folk's experience with: If 25F is the baseline for this, how well does this work as a late spring/early fall type of insulator as well? Eg. I have an Arcteryx Cerium LT, and that thing is weirdly applicable from 0C to around 20C. Is there a similar flexibility, or is it very much a winter-only jacket?

    Stone Island Shadow Project

    Question: is there a market for DIY or modified Stone Island badges? I've read somewhere that British kids have gotten arrested trying to steal the real things before. Genuinely curious given the customization you see with, for example, 3x2" velcro patches and similar.

    Yeah, the inspiration is pretty clear there. What’s interesting is a lot of the moto gear gets either nostalgic or branded, whereas Acr feels like it takes that nostalgia and function, and then looks forward instead of backwards.

    The square one is an affordance for the chest snap. The shoulder one I think is just decorative.
