It's like a neutered version of the original, whose appeal was it's jarring contrast and frankenstein approach to design.

Would like to know if, beyond the pattern if ACRNM had much of a hand in the colour (or lack of) decision on dispaly or if it was more a 'corporate thing'?

This is high street sanitization.

To be fair, would we be having this conversation if it was triple black/-001 colorway?

The most exciting thing about that photo for me is layering J63 under other jackets like that. Was always my plan when it got a bit colder.

My stance would remain unchanged, but I hear you, it’ll do great but it’s low hanging fruit.

This is just how it goes, unfortunately. How many J64TS-S jackets were sold? Quite a few. How many modulars were released to go with those? Zero. They frequently tease future accessories, which is both exciting and frustrating. Mostly frustrating though.

I may be in the minority, but I’m not exactly thrilled with this season. Tons of jackets, but no actual new designs other than the two new liners. And the liners weren’t my cup of tea. The flagship GT and S jackets were all rehashed designs.

I’m more impressed with the pant releases this season, which were also mostly rehashed designs besides the polarizing P26 and the P23A to some extent.

Maybe taking SS18 off from garments and doing a “bag & modular” season is just the thing E needs to get some fresh new designs cooking.

 

yea i hear ya. what's weird is that the ng4 was actually featured in the vid. maybe manufacturing issues?

There were P10s in the vid as well, which were obviously not in the drop so they were just wearing what went with the fits. The NG4 ain't coming out again man, forget about it.

again?

When did they release NG4? I recall a similar looking NG3, but I'm not sure the NG4 ever had an official release.

Lol - Kojima posted the spec sheet and his was a 3 :P. In all seriousness, im sure i wont be able to get near an NG4 for dust but the NG3 needed a few improvements if you ask me. Very weird piece on the more novelty end of the scale ...but to address its function seriously, it needed thicker polartec imo..it curls up at the bottom which is really irritating. Just felt like it needed some more weight and quality to it so a re-do as NG4 seems appropriate to me.

I hope that by classic you mean the first ACR-LF1 drop.

Canada has horrible taxes, it's where Haven is based.

Looks to me like the J61 is using YKK metal zips. I wonder if Acronym heard/experienced any of the criticism from FW15/16 about the Raccagni double zip on the J53TS...

@AvantSol- Can you confirm they are YKK? If so, how do they feel?

For Haven specifically I think it's a combination of strong CAD at the moment + the fact that they mark the value of shipments down for customs so that you are only paying the Canadian tax (as opposed to places like Bureau Belfast or the Acronym site itself, which have different prices depending on whether you are inside or outside the VAT zone). With MA sales tax the Bodega one will be around $1825, so still a bit cheaper due to this:

(I miss earlier this year when Haven had some actually good deals... even Canadian brand stuff like Veilance is now mostly at parity with US prices on their site.)
