Acronym.

Recommended Posts

Just got my J56, Fits pretty well I think, but I would just like to confirm it here since you guys seem to be the most knowledgeable people on acronym gear. Picture quality is atrocious I know. How do you guys think it fits? Appreciate the help.

As I promised before I will upload Papi size info, here it is:[ Errolson: 183 cm, 75 kg ]

Best way to adjust your fit according to this,cause it's official for real lol.Basicly boss goes all size m,but I do heard he tricks with some different sizes in lookbook. Just guess.

Thanks, I assumed errolson was slightly shorter than me, but he's about the same height. I'm glad I went with an L tho, the seams on the shoulders line up just like they should, and the sleeves are the right length, even though it fits a little roomier/longer overall.  

 

a Size M might fit more like it should tho, since if I would layer with this, so it could be seen from under the jacket it would have to come quite far down, and the proportions would probably look wack. Would it be worth it to return it and hope for something as nice on SS/17 or should I keep it? Since I wont be finding a size M j56 anytime soon. Some advice in that regard would be appreciated.

"This release was widely anticipated by both sneakerheads and techwear enthusiasts alike, resulting in the shoes flying off shelves and selling out immediately upon release with many hailing the shoe the best release of the year. Thankfully, it appears that the collaborations with Nike will continue, with another release slated for the spring of 2017."

 

I wonder what this could be. More Prestos? Outerwear? Flyknit Racers with zippers?

I hope they restock the Prestos at some point, really don't want to pay resale despite the prices leveling out.

Well, I wish I knew this before getting the ACG insulator. Good to know.

Sorry if this is already answered, but does this mean that the current season ACG Metamorphosis insulator is compatible with the Acronym shells (like the J1A-GT?)

yes it would be, at least as far as the collar zipper is concerned. dimensionality may be a different story as i'm sure attention to the cut of the insulator is considered in the design.

I believe someone mentioned that the neck zippers are compatible, and the sleeve fasteners should be as well. If they aren't you can secure it with the gravity pocket clips.

what is even the point of attaching an insulator to a jacket with some sort of zipper or loops? serious question. if anything it just means you can't take off your hardshell and keep your insulator on without removing everything. ppl want that?

Washed my J1A-GT for the first time this weekend. Double rinsed and then tumble dried to re-activate the DWR. Can't tell if I'm going crazy or not but the shell feels like it did shrink up a touch in the sleeves and the length. Has anyone else had a similar experience?

It's for the convenience. In certain areas you basically have two temperatures in winter: inside and outside. It's convenient to have the insulator + shell together in winter because you're probably taking them both off at the same time. Being able to remove the insulator also means you have a rain shell for when it's not so cold.

So, here is a really easy way to explain this for retailers of ACR GT jackets since they're the largest customs hit. It is basically trying to get the jacket properly classified. Here's some boilerplate for you fellow f®iends with duty troubles. This is attempting to frame the classification as 6201.99.8030 @ 4.2%.

6201 (jacket) 99 (performance recreational outerwear of other textiles) 8030 (subject to other textile restraints because its nylon faced) 

 

As a disclaimer this ain't legal advice, this is simply my experience and my understanding of these authorities.

Hey CARLOOA I'm sure you're sick of answering customs questions, but I've seen you mention 'declaring your own goods' a few times. Is this something I need to do before my acr shipment makes it to the US or should I just wait till UPS contacts me about paying my duties? Thanks for your help and all the information you've already provided

when duty payment is due you can call UPS and ask them to dispute the duty fee to be reclassified. you can't do anything until it's cleared customs and UPS stateside has it.

You can call the brokerage service after it's shipped but before it clears customs. Make damn sure that you have all the information to provide to the post entry desk. With this in mind, make sure you also purchase and have it mailed during the week. You will have no way to affect the assessment for free afterward, this costs $90 to contest fees.

Thanks guys, you're a wealth of info. I talked to the brokerage department and they gave me another number to call for disputes (502-485-2800) but they're closed till the morning so that gives me tomorrow to deal with it before my jacket arrives on Thursday. If my tracking has already passed the "The package is awaiting clearing agency review. / The package is at the clearing agency awaiting final release." step am I too late?

Is it a way to attach the J58-WS and J1A-GT also in the sleeves? Or is the zipper in the neck the only way?

there should be small loops on the sleeves of your shell, which can be used to attach it to an insulator like the j58

I'm going to be returning my J56-GT since it fits a little too loose, should have gotten an M instead. Problem is I've forgotten how it was folded inside the bag. Anyone have any advice on how to fold an acr jacket?

Can't tell if I'm unaware of some tech folding techniques Acronym use or if this is meant to be as funny as I think it is ^

:P I was being serious but I understand why you thought I wasn't. The question is odd I know. Its just that I'm not sure how I'm supposed to fold it back in the ziplock bag, don't wanna just stuff it in there and hope for the best. In conclusion, I'm not necessarily looking for the super secret folding technique that's been passed through generations, just want it to be neat enough for end to accept my return. 

In any case I think I managed to fold it neatly enough.

I just fold it however works making sure the hood stays flat so it doesn't fuck up the plastic bit that keeps it straight, shouldn't matter with the 56 :)

Yeah you could even detach the hood and lie it flat but I don't think they deduct points for folding techniques. Just get it in there ;)

Man...hearing "just stuff it in there" when talking about packaging Acronym gear makes me cringe. Surely we have more respect for these products than that? Then again, you did take the trouble to ask.

What are you talking about? 90% of their jackets are designed to be wadded up and stuffed in their own hood or pouch
