Yo. I'm new. Been lurking for a hot minute. I try and help with fabric info, duty questions, wild speculation. Regarding trading and selling, If you interact with me like a human or ursine mammal I will treat you respectfully and not try and gouge you.

lol please read more carefully. i was just pointing out the fact that OG guys are reselling too so either be consistent with the hate or that's just hypocritical. And I like how you pointed out my pt rep as if that means anything. I'm not the one here saying they're gonna build bots. we don't need people like you here.

You're out of your element Donny.  I think this was covered in earlier pages, but buying with the intent of keeping and then taking what the market will pay, versus buying with the intent of reselling are two different things.  Yes, taking the example you posted out of context of the user's past history with the brand doesn't look favorable.  But I can just as easily point to these past sales, and argue that he's made getting into the brand easier by making pieces available at lower price points.

With the influx of resellers, if he, or anyone else that has been following the brand for a while, were to do this now, a entrepreneurial minded person would immediately purchase and repost for twice the value.  That is why I don't mind certain people posting for above retail to protect against this behavior.   But when an unknown player comes into the market with the most hyped pieces of a season in random sizes a day after the drop and asks for offers, I'm going to call them out.  So I would disagree that "OGs" are being inconsistent with their hate.  Also, if you read vir2l's post, he is not going to build a bot.

I guess sarcasm doesn't translate over text well with all you newbloods.

I don't need a bot for Acronym. I never did and probably never will. The entry ceiling is too high for most people and Acrnm.com is able to handle all the traffic during release day which indicates to me that demand isn't quite up to hypebeast levels yet but inventory will still move super quickly.

If I really wanted a piece, I have other means of obtaining the collection (protip: being a part of the OG subnet access crew as well as being polite helps a lot, you should try it sometime.) I figured with this season being somewhat lackluster, I wouldn't have to resort to those methods.

Just an FYI, five of the sites that stock Acronym are already bot-able. It's ironic how fast you're throwing stones at random people yet you're still so blatant about your modus operandi.

Any site that uses Shopify as a checkout page is bottable, hell you can even create backdoor links to add the item to cart before the drop goes live if you know how to navigate your way around.

 

Looks like the J1TS-S are popping up on grailed for their stupid resell prices, was only a matter of time

I just got my P10TS from idol brooklyn, I did a quick fit and its significantly bigger than my P10s from last year. The sizing is very similar with the initial issues of nikelab ACG woven pants.

How big of a difference are we talking about? Is it like the diff between the -CH and -S, or something more significant than that?

Oh I didn't know there were size difference between the -S and -CH because both my P10s are -S. I'll take a picture later to show how much of difference. First thing that I noticed was I was able to zip without needing the DS stretch and my calves were not too constricted. Also, theres a lot of space around my thighs and quads.

The -CH definitely fits about 1/2 size looser than the -S (IMO). Gotcha, thanks for the info.

A very helpful previous post broke it down as such:

S- Tight

CH- Loose

DS- Looser

Looks like either a 5TS-BLK or 6TS-FOIL to me.

I know I'm beating a dead horse, but we are spending more time discussing the thread itself than the actual thing that brought everyone together. Ya, I remember when I recognized every person one here and the thread was a handful of people with sizing advice, care instructions, proxies, etc. but I do feel like an old man on his porch shaking a carbon fiber cane telling the kids to get off my lawn. We were all new to ACR at some point, but I think the "OGs" are just looking for more appreciation for the brand. Yes, they're just clothes, but the level of technical proficiency and attention to construction is something we discussed and respected, not just " where to cop". I think my general feeling was embodied when walking down the street in prestos, p10-a, ss-cp2 and 8ts, and I hear a "yo, sweet acronyms"... I turn around and think I can have a conversation with one of y'all, and the dude looks bewildered with a "acronym makes clothes?" That's it, I'm off my goretex soapbox. 

P.s. J1ts came today, armhole feel a little higher and tighter, waist fits loose, but overall mad happy. New detached pockets are small but sweet.

I'm guilty of talking about the "state of the thread" topics—but c'mon, capn figured out it was SHAKEDRY for the new stuff, that's pretty cool, right?

Not sure if you're kidding, but to my eyes it doesn't look like any of the 1k belts.

I know that acr produced belts early on, but I don't have photos.
