So ahhh, jumped on the J1 from bodega, order confirmation at 9:01pst, money taken out at 9:02...

11:30 I get a oops, we don't have enough to stock for your order.

:blush:

Had the same on the 2-tone J1TS-S.

Aesthetic wise probably my favourite ever piece.

I don't think there are bots, I think we as a race are turning into bots.  PayPal on AutoFill, multiple payment methods and twitter fingers.  There's a war going on outside no man is safe from...

For all the negative J1TS-S talk, there is no denying it was the nucleus of this drop.  Additionally, the 2-Tone at that...

Agreed. I was luckily able to cop one as well as both sets of modulars. Such a shame so few modulars dropped. I can see why its a divisive jacket, but I love it. Instant classic IMO

do all these retailers charge the same amount for these garments? wondering if any retailers are cheaper? not sure if this is a dumb question. if there are differences in price.. does anyone have an account of the prices at the different retailers?

Amen on the shamefulness of the low modular count.  3A-MZ4 around the corner maybe?

For the most part, yes. Europe is usually cheaper if buying from US even after customs (make sure to have it marked down by claiming correct garment code). But even in the US, it depends on retailer.

Worst retailer? Kith. Second worst? Union, especially if you live in Cali. 

Best? Bureaubelfast

All signs point to another drop some time soon. We can only hope.

I'm guessing P10TS in S and CH, foil bags and more and different foil modulars, maybe that leather looking jacket that E hasn't taken off since January.

Agreed regarding The Bureau.  I've never seen orders get tossed up so quickly.  They're Johnny Mnemonic with their FedEx account.

More foil...  :ph34r2:  Then I wonder why people are starting to tell me I look like a futuristic vagrant.  BTW, am I the only one who feels sorry for the shirts?  Nobody wants shirts?

Can anyone compare the high-density gabardine in the J1TS-S to Goretex pro in the J1A-GT?

What do you want to know? I got the TS today and the gt at home, how can i help you?

How different do they "feel"? Is the high density also noisy? How water resistant is it? How heavy? How structured?

Completely different... I have the J1 gabardine in raf green, i guess is the same as the TS, so here it goes:

Very diferent in many aspects. The high density is not noisy like the gt. In a way its like the material of a dockers, obviously more robust and better, but so you can imagine.

It is resistant , and i will keep you dry for a good period of time but not waterprof as the GT.

Heavy, dont have the weight but its heavier than the GT, it feels more robust....

Hope this can help you!!!

I didn't like the TS on the chest, but that two-tone was amazing, as well as those shoulder pockets.

The LA6B this season is just a button up variant of the awesome zipped LA6 from a few seasons ago, it's nothing really new. If you've already got an Acrnm shirt (and I've got 4), there's nothing about this one that would make you want another one unfortunately. E does make a great shirt though.

I didn't like the LA6 Because the button placement on the collar felt so off. I sold my LA7-DS because the length was a bit too long and tended to flare out at the bottom. LA6 fit what I wanted and I got it. Missed the S15-DS couple seasons ago and got the S19-DS instead. I'm super happy I can be head to toe in DS and wouldn't have it any other way. (unless southern california gets more awesome rain like this past winter.)

Anyone else impressed by the J47R-GT? From the leaks I thought it'd be a J47-GT with a Raccagni zip, but it's much more than that.

Changing the logo tape from vertical to horizontal and reinforcing the seams along the hood, sleeve cuffs and hem give the jacket a totally different vibe from its predecessor. The new paneling along the shoulders make it look more aggressively Acronym than the old J47 as well.

The only thing that's turning me off is the lack of an escape zip.

Yep. Was already a massive fan of the J47-GT, but glad this is as you said much more than just a J47 with a different zip.

Ended up buying it, should be around $1900AUD landed direct from Acronym which isn't toooooo bad. Will just end up throwing it on here if I don't like it in person.

Never copped any of the ACR shirts... any particular you would recommend? Most of my shirts are merino already or just cheap cotton (mix of Outlier, Wool & Prince and American Apparel).

I absolutely love the look of it. Copped it to replace my J47-GT!

Not Dolphinski but I can chime in. I own a S8-DS and have tried the LA7-DS and will soon receive the S19-DS and LA6B-DS. The DS fabric is perfect for my needs in a dry hot climate. The material itself is very durable, has a nice amount of stretch (especially the P10-DS feels like I'm wearing yoga pants). It will never fade because its not cotton so it stays black forever. It is nice and thin but it will not keep you warm. It doesn't have the weight or thickness. 

 

I have some outlier Merino tees (Ultrafine, Runweight, and Cotton weight). Comparatively its closest to the runweight tee but its not shiny at all. Very much a matte color. Its slightly thicker than the runweight but much less then the Ultrafine merino tee. 

I gotta give caution out there though that the price of Acronyms shirts and Tees are definitely high fashion price items. Do I love my $400 Acronym tee? Yeah but is it $325 better than my outlier runweight tee on a strictly materials level? I pay the high price because I like acronym.
