Acronym.

Recommended Posts

Managed to bag a pair of P10's and the J1A. I have to be honest though... the more I look at the latter, the more I feel like it's a miss.

Can we all just have a moment's silence for the fact that it sold out in under a minute at 1.9k?

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. :(

1.809,00 incl. VAT, 1495 without

Probably a small run honestly.

I'll I wanted as a black J1A-GT. Gore-tex Pro. Nothing fancy. No neon, no paclite.

I mean in all seriousness, the pricing is a completely moot point. It's never going back down, it's only going to go up every season. Whether it's the rising cost of materials, labour costs, transportation or just a drive for higher profits, absolutely no amount of debating or discussion is going to change that. With Acronym, it really is as simple as this: you're either in or you're out. And that's not even to say purely financially, as you can easily flip your purchase and get the money you spent back, it's a mindset... i am willing to pay whatever it costs to own this piece of clothing.

You know we've all gone mad when Grailed suddenly seems reasonable.

I’ve been staring at this small J1A in my cart for several minutes now, just not sure I can justify the price. If anyone who missed out wants it I’m happy to ship to you for retail.

I don't think this guy contradicted himself enough to justify you digging up his old posts.

unless you were trying to demonstrate something in a more broad sense

Heh, we're still buying. Let's think about this, if anyone was in Errolson's position, with a child, model gf, etc. would you charge less than what the market would bear? I'm not sure anyone would, Errolson, like the majority of folks is trying to live his best life—if we don't like it, we should vote with abstaining from voting with our wallets and let the stock sit. Otherwise, continue copping and support price creep and the advancement and development of Acronym.

i see no reason why acronym would have incentive NOT to raise prices. no other brand even comes close, awareness of resale market, inflation, fair worker compensation.. if he constructs it they will come. maybe if acr had a competitor it would incentivize competitive pricing, but there is no competition - he really is in a class of 1. considering this is his life's work and how much greater the demand is than the supply.. ya. i'd raise prices too.

I think everyone is just voicing out their frustration which is warranted if you believe the supply chain/manufacturing issues that raised the priced on everyone.  We cant vent? cmon
