here's the only full shot one I have at the moment... inside with the cinch shockcord, inside the advanced pocket, and both sides of it stowed in itself, and the cuffs. It does have an escape zip. Honestly been my fav since I got it... I know its a lot for WS, but im in SoCal, so GT is overkill. The upper right snap pocket the holds down 3rdArm straps could be the simplest but most useful thing on it.

I always felt like the WS version always looked nicer than the gt version.

Thinking about getting a size M/L.
Thank you in advance for your appreciated insights!

Thinner DS than the pants. Fits true to size, consistent with other sweaters they've produced.

Any cyclists here?

I commute 15+ miles/day on a track bike; would like some reviews on how p10's hold up while riding. Also, would an inner liner fit underneath to negate friction from saddle/thigh rub?

After tweeting at him, E suggested that the p10-ds would be comfortable, but another friend said that was a bad idea due to pilling and said he's had better experience riding in his p10-s & p10-ch.

Not a cyclist, but i think the ds piling is exaggerated. Can say I've been wearing the p15-ch (SS-14/ now would be - "ds") since they were released, excessively, and have no piling.  However, i wear these casually, non-athletically, if that makes a difference. 

Edit: I have interior piling, but not exterior. Should have been more specific. also Kampongkid is correct on the fabric difference.

 However my experience of DS (outlier and Acronym) DS pills heavily in the inside. it's when the softer yarn/material in the composition that attributes to moisture wicking and softer next to skin feel starts to degrade from abrasion. It pills quite heavily but that's about it, I haven't had any holes develop because of the pilling.

The first CH wasn’t the micro twill we’re seeing today it was a schoeller 3xdry cotton (which I wouldn’t compare to DS either). Old CH was 93% cotton and 7% elastane vs new 54% mac 43% cotton and 3% el.

DS piling is for sure a thing.

If you sized down and still wanted an insulator, you’d probably only be able to fit a vest, the arms are a pretty trim fit. It fits pretty long, more like a field jacket. I’d say stay true to size if you’re gonna wear it as a shell, sizing down would probably turn it into a lightweight jacket you thrown on over a tee. Plus the cinch cord really can pair down the fit if needed.

Yeah the old CH was called Schoeller Shape. 

And like Casey says, DS definitely pills with continued abrasion. While the P10-DS would definitely be the most comfortable pant for cycling because of the stretch, you could certainly expect pilling on the crotch gusset. You could always get the Enfin Leve p10 ripoffs in DS for much cheaper. Just a thought.

Been off forum for the last few months, just spent an hour reading months of posts! (nice to see@chunglove is still stealing wi-fi from coffee shops to make his troll attempts- some things never change:rolleyes:)

Soooo... I’m thinking of picking up a pair of the P10-DS. I’ve owned a couple pair of stotz and CH, and the sizing varied both between the fabric and the season. Can anyone comment on this season’s DS? Also- the only other DS I own is the S15-DS. Is this the same fabric entirely in terms of both weight and surface/backing?  Appreciate any insight, and nice to be back. Cheers!

Which model of Enfin Leve is the so-called ripoff of p10?

Care to elaborate?

By my eyes it's the exact same as last year's P10TS-DS. They have a button fly instead of the snap closure now, though.

Random question... I've just taken my beloved P17's out of the wash, and it seems that the label has come loose. Can I just confirm with someone who owns the same piece, am I right in remembering that the label is on the pocket, and not at the back of the waist band?

I just received the J59TS-CH in the mail today. Writing my first impressions. The oversized fit is very obvious; I wear all size S acronym both top and pants, and this one is at least one size bigger, the shoulders falling slightly off where size S usually lands. I can confidently say that even if I wear an XS it will still have a slight oversized look. The cinch cord is very important to the versality of the jacket and it enables more different ways of wearing this. Pockets are luxuriously big and utilitarian. I like how an oversized bomber look is sort of an oxymoron and contradition in itself, almost Rick Owens-esque in its design philosophy. It is not a jacket that one will fall for immediately, but given time I think the subtleties of its unique pattern will be appreciated. The CH fabric however (this is my first CH piece) is not for summer... at least wear I live. I am based in Tokyo and it is 26-32 degree celsius now. I will not wear this piece now, not until fall. But in winter, I can see how this piece can work as a softshell which can accommodate thick mid layers. The fabric is rugged and tough, feels more solid than stotz and DS. I do not have time to take nice pics at the moment, will post in a week or two.

If you have to ask you’re not looking terribly close.

I also don't really see that, unless we assume errolson invented and has the sole right to releasing black tapered pants.

I do love how they can produce in the same materials at a fraction of the price

When the P10s came out, did you hear anyone saying, "oh they just look like these pants"? Don't get me wrong, i like what Enfin Leve do, customisable service, material choices and at a very reasonable price point too, but you have to be in some sort of weird denial if you can't see the obvious Acrnm influence in some of their designs.

I think the influence is visible, but calling it a straight ripoff is unfair/inaccurate when literally everyone is making black tapered cargos at the moment.

Also that's what p10 actually are

and it has been done long before and after acronym (by aitor throup for example)

But well, everything is taken from somewhere these days, and things look exactly the same sometimes, I'm just a bit triggered when acronym is seen as a pinnacle of civilisation. But hey, it's only clothes ;)

Hi, I just wanted to inquire help from people who are more knowledgeable about acronym products than me. I have the J-58WS  and was wondering what the best approach would be to washing/cleaning the garment. Thank you for your time, and I really appreciate it.

The body length feels TTS to me (i'm roughly 5'8 and wear a medium). The shoulders/chest/arms are def loose/baggy fit though. It's dryskin, so it will pill eventually. Not as robust as -CH or -S, but ay more breathable.

Care tags will provide all the info you need. WS is pretty easy to take care of. Cold wash with some tech wash (prefer Grangers) and then 20 min in the dryer on low/med to finish.
