Acronym.

Recommended Posts

How is it dead? A majority of these lackluster pieces sat before and now they all sold out. Modulars are a no-brainer.

Hype is going to be alive and well once FW17 drops, especially a certain jacket which shall not be named.

Edit: If that was sarcasm, you got me.

Nearly impossible to acquire still unless you have access to bot programs to buy and get alerts or are in the know way ahead of time. Otherwise you suffer from the outlandish prices from the resale market. Hype still fully alive and well as things are still selling out within hours and more than likely to continue for some time. We all know the P10 is at most a $400 to $600 pant and even that could be pushing it. Although I'm no stranger to supply and demand so c'est la vie They should seriously consider a pre-order system or maybe even a create your own KIT ala KIT 001. Choose your bag, pant, belt, and jacket etc. Just a thought though of course. One can dream B).

I don't think Acronym suffers in the same way that other brands do in this sense purely because of the price point. The outlay is too high for most wannabe resellers to jump in and try their hand at it. 

You don't need a bot to cop Acronym at all if you're really scoping out different sites and what not and prepare yourself for the drop. The hype is certainly at crazy levels in comparison to history, but it's not quite at the level you're inferring yet.

Imagine being so slow that you think you need a bot for ACR. You maybe-probably could do with a bot for Supreme; you just need to be around for Acronym.

Yea exactly. If there's anything you really want from a drop and you miss out it means you just didn't put in enough effort pretty much.

What a restock to wake up to.

Funny to see those petrol p13-ch in xl still haven't sold since the old website. Not even hype can move them.

I didn't spot it until an hour or so after @chunglove posted initially, and there was still plenty of stock(Almost snagged the CH-J31, but im still not sure how I feel about those sleeve tabs...). Think this went over most peoples heads. Even the comments in Errolson's intagram post seem to reflect how few people realized this was old product, not a fresh drop.

It has been pretty fun to see the site so full of imagery/product rundowns, as opposed to its typically ghosty feel. Not to mention the random young and old Errolson fit pics.

2:same for newly taken fit pics on sp12ts-ch,lenny rocks item OCP-KA1,usually ka is for short sleeves,not sure wether the tee or the legging.

That's most likely the shirt—which looks great. The leggings are, I'd say based on the stripe, Nike.

Essentially, if you want to wear Acronym, you need two things 

1. the knowledge the brand exists

2. the willingness to fork over the cash/pay the duties (oh hey, your $1100 jacket is actually $1400 because it isn't made locally *shakes head(I know, duties promote local business, but it's a pain in the ass for us))

beyond that, it isn't that hard to get a hold of.

I dunno...I had a hell of a time trying to get the stuff I wanted last release and I was there on the dot waiting for it.

I like that the dystopian future you all dreamed of came in the form of robots buying the clothes you covet.

34 looks so good in those new pics where he sized up. Very underrated jacket if you ask me.

Agree'd.

When I first saw the J56 it reminded me of the J34. Seeing it now makes it very tempting

Picked up a pair of P14-S in olive, wanted both colors but black was sold out by the time I was out of the movie. Hopefully the medium fits, otherwise it'll be up for sale. (Increasingly convinced I should be buying small in the pants not medium but the page for the 14s says size up.)

Was tempted by the P13s but who can pull of jodhpurs in this day and age?

We should all have bought them and started a weird tech-jodhpurs instagram troll sesh. Throw the hype beasts off their game.

Your custom fees are joke compared to EU duties on everything above 23EUR. You have no VAT, so all your base price is lower, on the other hand we have to pay VAT on items imported from non-VAT countries.

I know that it's a pain in the ass to pay extra for nothing, but you have plenty of options to buy locally, including retailers whose discount codes work on acronym.

3. Be size L or XL so you can be asleep on the day of release and still walk away with 5 jackets, 4 shirts, and 3 pairs of pants
