LOL i feel you.  ng4 was a suprise for me too, thought the product photos were just using the ng3.  but from the presto corp promos, looks like the ng4 might come out in white as well? is there only 1 drop fw? thought it was 2

Definitely going to be another drop. Still waiting on the J1As, the P30A-DS and who knows what else

Random thoughts 

1 first few minutes at mothersite, i mean for products charged this level, the shopping experience is, bla bla bla.

2 j65 in white goes with Merino which makes it might cheaper than blk version(some price list days ago indicated it)

3 i give j74 white a chance :) , and it’s bit like the mix of pockets array from j40-l and arm pocket from j51-ws.

4 illusion or what, p23a-s price not so high.

5 No stickers to FO that’s long story. Fun

Because Internet forums like this one have given nerds all over the world the idea that it’s bad to wash your clothes frequently (and in some cases at all).

Call me whatever you like, but that's really unhygienic.

It looks like the new presto's might be an Alt-C (Ash Thorp) x ACR x NikeLab collab.

Not to change the subject from todays drop: anyone who has received their roborace tees and hoods: anyone know P2P on L in either piece? 

Thanks.

It's one jacket that I will never sell. EXTREMELY lightweight. Perfect windbreaker. I've never gotten the hang of packing it properly so I don't bother anymore but it is packable. It's easy to wash and maintains its tech properties after many washes. It fits a bit small. I'm typically somewhere between a small and medium in Acronym and I own a medium and the thing feels perfectly fitted.

Jacketsling loops are inside only so you can't wear the sling externally. And the jacket is so fitted that you can feel the sling inside the jacket. I wear it without the sling most of the time because of this.

This. I love mine to death, packs up small so it's always in my 3A-1.

This season's P23's fit slimmer or wider?

They felt the same as my original P23TS-CH.

Anyone been successful proving DS is "water-resistant" for customs? it changes the costs dramatically.

The testing relies on water ingress not only the inherent water resistance of the individual threads. In that respect, DS is water resistant to soaking but rather easily water permeable. It doesn't hurt to try though!

i'd say pass on the j47ts. its rather underwhelming and not worth the price.

was hoping it would have the three deep pockets as prev generations, but unfortunately no

This collection doesn't necessarily mean this season though, might be another drop in a few months perhaps? Idk, but ty for finding that

I really dig the design of the J63A, but just can’t get with the look of the infinium fabric. Looks too much like a trash bag from the Matrix or some shit. If it was 3XDry I’d be all over that business.

It reminds me too much of those overstuffed leather couches from the mid 80’s.

Agree on the J46, on the J63A enough is going on that it comes off alright to me. I checked it out in store, it's definitely not the same fabric as PB, feels less soft/smooth and more windstopper-ish

Yeah, see I think it works better with less going on. The busyness accentuates the pleather look IMO. Granted I haven’t seen it/handled it up close so I’m probably(most likely) talking out my ass. I like the idea of it, but it almost has that uncanny valley look to it. I dunno. Not trying to yuck anyone’s yums, just wish it was in a different material.

I’m still not convinced that infinium isn’t leftover skin from the early real doll prototypes.

J48-BR is my favorite hoodie from Acronym in terms of cut and comfort and I wear it to death in the last two years. I think its pattern is similar to the J63A, which is why J63A is one FW18 item that I really am looking forward to. I agree that the shiny patina is not something I am super fond of, but I can accept. I had a light shell jacket from Japanese label Ripvanwinkle that has a similar patina, and it worked well for me. I just hope the Infinium fabric of the J63A can be as tough and water resistant as stotz or CH. I just braved a typhoon (walking ten minutes) with the J59TS-CH and it lasted one minute before I became soaked to the skin. For a non-goretex fabric, it did pretty well.
