I'm just hoping the j28 won't retail for the 2.2k or so that was the japanese price... :/

There is always a 30-60% premium in Japan so no it won't be 2.2k. Expect it to be around $1200-1600 depending on retailer and VAT.

I wish they didn't get rid of the logo on the left armsleeve though...

I think Hobbes had the best answer to all such questions a while back...

Great knitwear/neckwear this season. Jacket-wise the J62-S looks like my jam (has it always had a hood?) - I appreciate the understated pieces.

Also I like it that the modular liner jackets this season seem to come in a sliding scale of potential airport security trouble.

Even with the limited availability of this drop, I would not be surprised to see P26's languish on the shelf for a bit.

RAF J56S is awful tempting...

To be frank, the piece I find most interesting is the J16-GT

I'm not sure what it is about it, perhaps the more direct and industrial design,

It just looks how I imagine Arc'teryx LEAF would be making for spec ops teams in 2037

good to see that acronym have dropped the collection on site so we can have a look through before the release, not that i'll be able buy anything low on funds, ring fenced some equity for the iphone x, plus the likelihood that they'll sell out before i could hit add to cart is going to be an issue.

has anyone noticed the descriptions? nearly all have lyrics from either public enemy, grace jones, front 242cabaret voltaire, joy division, bauhaus, tricky (public enemy cover) and future sound of london. spent more time watching videos from these tracks and others than on the acronym site, nice.

always love the product descriptions.

J16-GT is the standout for me too. The SS-J16 was my first ACR piece and the GT-J16 is still my favourite jacket of all time. The new updates are appreciated and I can't wait to get my hands on one. If they had also added gravity pockets to the new one I could easily replace the rest of my ACR with it. Everything I need and nothing I don't. Perfect.

This is the one for me too. The hood is new for this version.

What's worse, the P26 zipper looks golden with silver slider. Also I do not like to put my hand into metal zipper pockets on jackets (it's quite loose there), I imagine on the pants it's way tighter and less comfortable.

There are some really terrible pieces like the pee pants or j64ts, the reseller grail and some good new/reintroduced stuff like other pants. We got everything and I expected much worse, good season and there is another smaller drop on the way.

Big zips on pockets are like vaginas with teeth. I don't like putting my hands in either of them tbh.

There does not seem to be the feverish manic reaction to this seasons appearance, I like that, calmness.
