Acronym.

Recommended Posts

Is it safe to assume that none of the online ACR retailers sold the Prestos and the only chance to secure them at retail was only via Acronym and Nikelab?

I stand corrected. Thanks.

Bit surprised the J43A-GT has already sold out at Haven.

 

They seem to sell out fast, I think it's partly because they get very few units of each piece and have two retail locations on top of online sales...

Just checked out the p24 in store. Size down one if you haven't already... Might be regretting my XL. Construction is insane though!

Nice to see a return of the J57, but man over 1k euro? Dang, I paid ~500 US for my old version new from Haven.

Anyone notice this new 3A piece? Any ideas what this is? I just grabbed the J57TS-SS, which blew me away in person. Sadly, it didn't come with these 3A pocket attachments  :P Wishful thinking I know ha!

Did it fit pretty TTS? I usually size down for "straight" which its listed, but looks a little "profile" to me.

I just received my prestos and time to add to the confusion; it fits TTS.

I was told to size down (I'm a 10 and went for S) and now it's snug (wearing it unzipped is fine though), my toe touches the tip of the shoe

Got a sizing question about the upcoming October drop.

 

I feel as if I am between sizes; J1AGT size M feels slightly big, a J51WS size M seems to fit fine, whereas a J25WS and J42GT in size S seem to be slightly too tight. 

 

I am asking in regards to the J50S and J58WS.. What do you guys reckon? Should I size M or size S. Im worried that the bomber will be too long if i go for the M.

 

For reference, I am 173cm and 71kg.

did the P10s size S sold out already or are they only dropping in oct? I'm only seeing M & L.

 

side note: got my prestos shipping confirmation last night. surprisingly shipped via UPS just as they said they would even though invoice was for regular post. def not complaining though.

Definitely fits TTS although a bit on the baggy side... if that makes sense.

argh thanks.

p10a-s or ch? seems that ch has stretch but s doesnt? but ch is a lighter fabric? never handled the fabrics in person so any insight is much appreciated. thanks!

seriously considering j53ts too... thats the real reason for being born with two kidneys

Honestly I'd do ETA proof over Scholler.  ETA proof drapes better, scholler "bunches up" more, especially around the calf zips.

I think it depends on what your definition of "drape" is. I've owned both the p10-s and ch variants.

 

S - stiffer, less give. This is 100% cotton so it fades/marks similarly to raw denim (actually a great look IMHO). stacks better due to the stiffness. wabi-sabi life.

 

CH - significantly softer handfeel. def more luxe. Given that it's a synthetic blend it's more resistant to fading. I found that this "drapes" more and moves more naturally. the stretch is very comfy. 

 

just buy both, no ragrets.

edit: points covered by solographik..

just to make sure i got it right, etaproof = stotz = S and CH= schoeller?

but i read somewhere that etaproof is stiffer? and also fades easily?

additionally, cant seem to find any P10A-S in black small anywhere, only CH.

only got 2 kidneys, if i have 3, definitely no ragrets buying both fabrics

From what i saw, only the mainsite carried the p10a's in Small. All other sites only seemed to have a medium. End drops tomorrow, so may be worth waiting to see what size run they have.

 

another oddity - i purchased my pair from revive (p10a-s in a medium), and the shop sent me a photo of the waist measurement (just a hair over 16"). This is almost an inch smaller than the main site's waist measurement, so we'll see. Will report back once i receive the pats.

In my opinion, there's no comparison. The Microtwill CH is just a vastly better material all round than the Stotz. It's comfier, stretchier, more resiliant to everything and imo looks nicer. The only reason i would buy Stotz again when there was a CH option is for the Raf Green.

thanks. will wait for end tomorrow. if they really are 16'' though then i might be able to get away with an M, assuming they do not stretch out much after a few wears. i would say im a true 46.

how easy does the S fade though? if similar to raw denim as you said then it should only show significant fading after tons of wear + wash?

if worn on a rotation basis + dry cleaning would it still fade as easily? can deal with some standard cotton fading but not sure about honeycombs whiskers and shit.

stiffness sounds good, stretch sounds good too. goddamnit putting 'buy both' ideas in my head

If I had the choice, I'd def go with CH over S, it feels less like armour and more like clothing, so much more comfy, if I could afford to I would go CH every time, shame it is not made in olive as there would be no need to have the S and surely the price would be lower too given there really is no need to make the S version if a CH exists. I'd love to know the business decision behind that.

I didn't notice any stretch in the waist with either of my pairs, and i wore both of them hard (daily commutes via bike). 

 

I may have overstated the raw denim thing. It will fade, but you won't get crazy honeycombs/whiskers etc. You'll definitely get creasing along areas of high friction/wear though.

 

nictan: PM'd you some pics

 

edit: all this hate on stotz ;) both fabrics are amazing in their own rights! one of the things that isn't mentioned is that you can reapply the DWR on the stotz fabric. On the schoeller site, they say that 3xDRY finish lasts about 50 washes. I'm not even close to that yet, but i wonder what will happen towards the end of the lifecycle. With the stotz, you can essentially re-apply indefinitely.

 

however, this might be a moot point since we're all buying new pants every season, right?! right?!
