It already has. I love windstopper but it's not worth it at this price, a few hundred more dollars and you can possibly get the GT for resale.

Looks like they forgot a zero (or two knowing Grailed pricing lol). Probably won't follow through with the sale.

If it’s sold directly by grailed it’s probably not an error. 

Wouldnt be surprised to see it for sale again with an extra zero in a few weeks though!

Makes me wonder if ACR ordered too much WS and figured the most chased jacket would be a good way to get rid of it.

best part was his reply

Better start before the rest of SS '18 drops.

He did wear it. Only worn for 15 minutes prior to listing, like new, really want to keeps this but need the cash.

Maybe this has already been a topic of discussion, but the sudden integration of buttons seems counterintuitive to techwear... Peep the shirt on Lenny in the J53TS-GT pics. Peep the J56-S. Why integrate such an old clasp? What about flying cars, you know?

@brainerd666 I was thinking how the hell was the J61 $500 - 600 less assuming the same amount or less material went towards the pockets & collar patterning. I think it's a dope jacket but damn..

Pocket layout, collar patterning, hood deployment system, forcelock+logotape, interops, extra main laminated zip system etc... Those are all features

Obvs extra features = additional design/production time = $$$$$

Not to be dismissed so easily. Yes theyre both trashbag WS material but we're carelessly overlooking these other important design elements that come into play

I'm aware of all of that, but it's the same 47A with a cheaper material priced higher than what the GT retailed for.

all those obvious features were already on the j47a-gt so it's not like they had to make a completely new design from scratch

Guys, don't let this restock distract you from the fact that Errolson was in a Porsche ad.

Clearly, all new Acronym products now carry the "VIP Luxury Fee"... their older products lacked that badge, hence why even the classically more expensive Gore-Tex variants were bargains compared to these new Acronym "Ballers-only" pieces. 

It was only a matter of time before I gave in. 2018 is the year I turn into an amputee, maybe single kidney too.

lmao dont be dumb. if the j47a-gt were to drop this season itll be much more $$$ than 3 years ago.  prices raise every season not to mention all the other positive business moves theyve made between that time. you lot are smart ill let you figure it out :P

Maybe the whole new manufacturing setup has something to do with it too?

And did those claiming it was „the same J47A“ check its ‚seam construction‘?

(I‘d probably charge more too if i had to sew the same pattern with thinner material ;-))

I’d laugh if they moved manufacturing to China, thus negating the Canadian brokeboi customs revelation.

The saga continues. Suitable bag for a college lifestyle is just too hard to find.

^I like the dude, but he should stop pretending he wanted to keep the bag other than to resell.

I mean, price is determined by all sorts of factors, including the old “what-we-can-get-away-with” metric... but man, there isn’t even a warranty on this stuff. The tech is like five years behind industry leaders, and the customer service is nonexistent. It’s a lot to pay for an aesthetic and a few fun-but-slightly-tired gimmicks. Aren’t you excited to pay more money than last year for interops and forcelock?

Seriously. Find me in the veilance thread, lol. Same fabrics, a customer service dept that does what it’s supposed to, and pieces that go on sale. 

.....might cop another pair of p10s tho.
