How does one size pants? I've heard that one should size for length, but is this always true?

It's not always true, but since sizing is S, M, L each will cover a range of waist sizes, therefore waist isn't as much a constraint.  Sizing for length is definitely advisable when you see waist measurements that seem to make no sense, e.g. P23TS-S had some wild waist measurement of 50+cm across...obviously too large by any normal means, so this should clue you in that these pants are intentionally wide and require significant belting at the waist.  For these types of pants, look at the length more than anything since the waist is intentionally large at any size.

Yeah I'm about 5' 8" and finding that itis very dependent on material and style type. Generally I hear if they are 'normal' style trousers you go tts while baggier items is "size for length".

I have a pair of p10 DS in medium, they fit fine. They are just a little long on me but are good when I pull them up. While my ch pair fit perfectly length and  don't need to pull them too high. And I find the CH material to look a little slimmer. But then again there could be a bunch of factors; washing, seasonal alterations(if any) etc.

Now for 23s I have to get a small because they are way too long for me for a medium and look ridiculous when I rise them.

I agree with AvantSol. I have three different pairs of p23 in different sizes and materials. p23-s (S) looks good, but they are not very convenient (tensed in calves), p23ts-ch (XL) are long enough and wide. p23a-ds (L) are perfect. 
Also I had p10ts-ds (L) and they were long. Stretched knees below the knees looked particularly ugly. Surprisingly, but the same size in p10a-s (L) looks good.

PS I'm 5'11"

With acronym pants it's advisable to know how you want the pants to fit exactly. The different material choices greatly vary the fit which is attributed to each individual material's properties as @Z-11 illustrated above.

I’m surprised that all the fits look fine no matter the size.

All looks really good, but L is sick! Im a few cm taller than you, so I guess L is my size if I were to buy p23.

Im 5'10", 80-82 kg.  P10 fits ok only in S for this height. Thas why in L size they looks ugly (articulated knees are in the wrong position). P10 DS in medium looks bad, but in size S - perfect.

CH defenetly isnt looks slimmer than DS. Cuz of more dense material CH have more pronounced and "rigid" stacks.

This is weird. I am the same height and weight and Medium fits perfect for me in P10-DS.

All about your inseam length instead of actual height IMO. It better determines where the hem on cropped pants or articulation on the knees will hit. I'm 5' 10" but have shorter legs. Size small P23-S below:

Just try size s and compare with m. No doudt size will fit better than m especially for -DS. 

For reference. P10ts-ds in M looks on me like on Lenny (foto from SS18), but S size - like on Ian. Defenetly the second one fits better. I have an athletic build with "normal" leg length.

We're already pushing the envelope in terms of release date, so who knows? Could be September the way things are looking.

Would like a P17 but I imagine that horse bolted long ago, be interesting to see a TS version too, bring back a pair of super loose BDU shorts ! 

 

I'm not sure I'll even be able to see what's for sale as I finish work at that time, by the time I get home it'll all have vanished...

I'll live vicariously through this thread, fill your boots folks!!

I got some p10S from the SS16 drop, just checked the receipt and they were 485 EUR. Now at ~1,200 EUR, it's an almost 3x markup over just 2 years. Are you fucking kidding me!!! Pricing is so out of sync with value, I just cannot even remotely justify looking at ACR now. Goodbye, it's been fun while it lasted, but there's just no way...

Whew I got ahold of the J1A in S, those went fast. Never owned paclite so I'm curious to see how it compares to the rest of the goretex lineup.

Out of interest, how much was the new J1A?

€1200 for trousers and >€800 for a sweatshirt is just bonkers. Glad I got my P24As a couple of years ago because I doubt I'm ever buying another pair of acronym pants at those prices. :(
