Received some items from 17FW and honesty I'm a bit disappointed and here are my personal feelings:

J28-GT: I have the old version and wanted to checkout he new one. Was hoping for a slimmer fit from pictures and previous speculations. The fit is the same as far as I can tell, but missing details like elbow tab logo (I know that's long gone), hood drawstring that shows up when stored (one of my favorite little gimmick), and I'm not a fan of the grosgrain sleeve velcro either...

J58-WS: also have the old version but need extra insulators for all the shells lol, nothing noticeable that justifies the price hike imo, let along some production defect I heard.

J64TS-S: have high expectation on this as they look good in the fit pics, but the sleeves look bulky around zip area for me. I'm also expecting the smaller (5mm?) zip for that, but it is big and not comfortable when wearing.

P23-S: I have to say CH and DS look nicer and drape better on these wide fitting pants...

What changed on the J58 from season to season? I have the first edition.

They are basically the same, elastic hem is tiny bit different, wash tag position changed, that's all I can tell...

Ok so J58 gets a slightly different elastic and the wash tag moves and we get a Gen 1.1

Meanwhile J56 gets a visibly different button system yet remains Gen 1

Hmmmm

I would agree except J62 gets a Gen 1.1, as does S14-AM.

62 has the hood now... arguably bigger change than the front fasteners on the 56 as it's a new feature of the garment, but yeah, I don't know if the version numbers / naming conventions are always consistent.

From ACR's description the J16 is "the Acronym response to the original PCU Level 5 jacket" which is a purely military garb.  As such, it makes sense it would have velcro pads to allow for identification/morale patches since the original PCU jacket (and 99% of all mil garb) has them.

At this price point ACRNM should include fabric matched patches, uncovered hook and loop gets nasty. There are, however, plenty of kewl morale patches to fit the bill...

Gotta say I think the J64TS-S is one of the strongest pieces by Errolson in recent memory. Feels like a spiritual successor to the EJ4-TS in some ways, but just so many different ways to wear this one. Aggressively Acronym at it's heart and with styling possibilities that echo some of the best by Lang & Raf.

Wow, I didn't know the thumbhole part for the hands could be detached... I thought the zipper was a pocket or something. Acronym made no mention of that and only referenced the sleeves.

I definitely would've pulled the trigger on this if they modeled it like you did.

Thumbhole part isn't detachable, there's just a zip on the top of the wrist so you can access your watch.  Still pretty cool looking though.  The thumbhole bit is also cut in such a way that the sleeve fits pretty normally if you don't stick your thumb through, which I appreciate.

J16-GT was the one this season.  I was really close to pulling the trigger but my J1A-GT was throwing me shade in the corner.  Busta’s “Do it to Death” comes to mind when Hillary was hissin’.  The next piece to catch wreck, aside from P23A-DS, was definitely the J64.  I’m still trying to figure out which color took it though.  Black is flames but the contrast on that Raf is tough too.

I wont say too much since most of you are already aware of the weatherproofness of a GT, but damn this J28 held up well. Just finished an 8 hour shift outdoors, in a constant downpour, humid & fully active. I did get body heat buildup but not as much as the ripstop nylon pants I had on. Pockets were all stocked but what surprised me was that everything kept in the mezzanine pockets were dry. I pushed this jacket pretty far today & I am very pleased.

E4J-TS is a lot more grey man than the 64. There’s no reason anyone else would ever know it’s covered in molle webbing when you’re wearing it.

Ooh yes, Acronym appreciation time. Okay so one time last year I was wearing my J27-GT, pretty drunk, riding my roommates bicycle to get some fast food around 1 or 2 in the morning (had broken spokes on mine, I launch it off way too many curbs). He works as a bike mechanic at the shop on our campus, so this thing was tuned up nice. I was using my phone in my right hand, and with my left hand I grabbed the front brakes to slow down. On my bike it's sloppy and loose so you have to crank it all the way down, but this thing was tuned af, as such I immediately went flying over the handle bars. I'm not sure exactly how I came down exactly, probably on my shoulders and did a combo flop/army roll until I came to a stop. When I woke up the next morning I was sure I was going to find a huge hole on the jacket somewhere, found absolutely nothing, it's like it never even happened. 10/10 quality.

And as an added bonus, the grease from the burgers and crisp meats I stuffed in my pockets to bring home wiped away super easily. So I didn't have to wallow in the shame of my sins for all too long

maybe they should make a giant sized force lock with bigger magnets so ear buds actually stay connected

Seemed to just be that, I checked their site when I saw the email too, and saw the J64 in a L, they had remaining p24-s from SS16 and that was it

Received my P23A-DS pants yesterday, they are a delight.

At first glance, thick and hard-wearing. At first try on, smooth and forgiving - I went with XL and lucky I did - length-wise they're perfect.

At first I didn't notice the issue others have mentioned about the belt system - though, I did wrench the pulls fairly tight - seemed to sit fine, but now I understand what everyone meant, if you change position stand up/sit down or have a certain gait when you take some steps, it does loosen a bit everytime. However it's easily remedied as others have mentioned before, push the bunching fabric close to the buckle.

I like the belt system a lot, however I have 1 gripe - the flimsy feeling of the belt itself. I think i'll try and replace it with something thicker, which will eliminate the effect of the pants loosening.

I'll wear the heck out of these.
