The strangest one is 18Montrose.

Even though they base in UK and state that VAT is not included when shipping to non european countries, their price is comparable to US retailers, if not higher.

Actually I found that the price goes up when you choose non european instead of UK. I really don’t understand how is this called “VAT deducted”, and why are they so different from other european retailers.

Just got this reply from 18Montrose :

« Hello,

Thank you for your email and earlier call.

After having spoken to our buying team they have advised that the prices are set by Acronym across all currencies, I do apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Unfortunately the currency you would pay in correlated to the shipping country, we are unable to amend this.

I do apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Kindest Regards »

So the euros price is set by acronym : 

£1173 for a P23a-S or 1522€ if you want to ship to France. Impossible to pay in £ and ship to France.

Exchange rate is £1 = 1.12€ 

Do the math...

 

Don’t trust 18Montrose. I bought from them first season they stocked Acronym. They charged me Tax. They said there was no way to fix it or refund me but they might change it for future seasons. Instead they just raised their price lol.

To my knowledge, Retailers don't have to deduct vat. Zero rating is an option when conditions are met.

My point is that they claim that VAT is deducted in their FAQs but that’s clearly not true.

Guess they won’t mind, most items would still be sold out anyway.

Since you did your edit today, I can safely assume that it wasn't you camping the entrance yesterday afternoon praying that they open. Whoever that was, you better be glad he opened the store for you out of remorse lol... congrats on the size M.

For everyone wondering what they have in stock, they still have the black J47TS-GT and both cws of the P23A-S. White J47s and NG9s are gone, NG8s are still in stock and I think the P27-DS. Forgot what else. The J47TS is going to be 2280 + shipping. Yes, for Cali residents, that's around ~2.5k after taxes.

Shoutout to the stores that reduce VAT

Ya definitely not me hahah, and Commissary doesnt have the best track record with opening up on time usually lmaooo

Make sure you check ALL the pockets, I thought mine was missing too but found out they stuffed the tape and the little goretex booklet in the lower hand pocket

Just checked. You were right, it was in the lower left hand pocket.

So fucking bummed. Got back from holiday today, and just opened my order from the latest drop to find that my J72-DS was not included, even though I've been charged.

Y’know, for a brand that prides itself on being future in thought and deed, they sure do run their business like a 1990’s dial up site...

It does seem like there are an inordinate number of slip ups in this drop. Missing items, missing buttons, zippers sown the wrong way around, stitches coming undone...

Godfuckingdamnit, I am pretty steamy right now :(

In my order was the NG8-PS missing but charged and as well shown in the invoice. After I contacted the support they send the missing part within 24h. But a NG8 is not a J72. I hope you will receive it soon.

You will get used to it.

They may be slow to response and sometimes does not even bother to reply, but they always fix the issues in the end. 

Fine by me, much better than talking tons of shit and doing nothing.

I’ll take it back.

Placed order yesterday when mothersite restocked, received order confirmation, payment confirmation and PayPal invoice all at once. I even received shipping notice in 30 minutes.

24 hours later my order got cancelled with no reason given, and the item I want is sold out. :rolleyes:

Glitches aside, what are the community's thoughts on the P23A-S vs. the -DS variant?

I’m digging them so far. They feel a little tighter where the cuff meets the pant. Obviously less stretch, so cuff tends to ride up more when seated. The silhouette  looks better in S to me.... while I LOVE DS, the drape is always a bit off on the oversized pants, at least for me. I’ll get some fit pics up soon.

Thanks mate. I found the cuffs to be really tight myself (which I'm a little concerned about in light of the QC issues), but love the rigidity versus my P17-CH's. The silhouette is great.

Really? I have the opposite opinion when it comes to oversized pants. I think dryskin looks and feels the best when wearing drop crotches.

I like the structured fit of the S more, belt loops, button on the fly, the potential for a nice patina, & most importantly the floating pockets feel like they can actually be used to store things. Things I like better on the DS is the webbing system & obviously the stretch.

Also, it's crazy how raf changes color in different lighting. In direct sunlight it looked dark brown but in moderate indoor lighting it's the olive color I much prefer.

Speaking of P23 variants, am I the only one who can't figure out how to use the drawcord on the -S/-CH properly? The one on the -DS has buckles to hold it in place, but the regular one just seems to end in loose straps for decoration? Is there a way to fix them in the cinched position? I realize you can just tie their ends together but that looks like crap and gets in the way of using a belt...

i send e-mail about high price, i got reply and they agreed that it was too high to be priced that way.

Since i brought it to their attention, they made me a coupon code that i can put towards that item

too bad.... i was at work, by the time i check email... already sold out

oh well...

Quick review of the new J65...

- The jackets feel quite heavy and substantial

- They fit much larger than the WS version (don't be fooled by erlsn) (shown here in medium)

- The black one dehairs like crazy

- The white one may have random dark spots due to nature of the fabric

- Only the white one comes with a jacket sling

- The white one is probably the best value for the money
