I do not understand why is it so desirable to see leaks when you cannot buy anything anyway.

hey guys,

Just bought my first acronym shell, a J28.

I was wondering what you guys recommend as liners/what to wear under to keep warm.

As much as I like the J58, it is alot of money since i already bought the J28.  How does the J50-ws compare?

Any other suggestions would be great as well !

if you’re trying to save a bit there’s non-acronym options like the arcteryx atom, veilance mionn is, acg metamorphis (this 1 will zip in i think)

Strongly vouch for the arcteryx atom lt. Bought it as a midlayer for snowboarding but I wear it everywhere when its a little chilly out. Just so damn comfy and light.

I've owned both and I sold the J58 because I tended to wear the J50 as a stand-alone and the J58 (by design) is tighter around the waist because of the elastic so it works well as a liner but less so as a stand-alone. I found it also rides up on me a lot.

I do but leaks are not physical samples of the final product. (while movie trailers are exactly the same thing as final movie just smaller)

Those fuckers who leaked have killed subnet for us, pardon me that I do not want to support this behavior.

Thats what i was thinking as well.  I do like the design more and i feel i would get more wear out of it even as a standalone piece.  How isit for warmth though, isit comparable to the J58?  i heard the J58 is beast for warmth.

 success is what killed subnet. erlsn figured out he was no longer dependent on the incrowd aspect of the brand so why bother.

would recommend veilance mionn is if you don't want to zip in. ultra soft and light.

But I feel like its useful to have liners attached to the shell in cold days.

Personally the most useful function, and you can do it with acg metamorphis as well.

Very valid point, and I appreciate your integrity. If they wanted the general public to have a taste, they'd post previews in a public space.

I think it's worth stating that, given the speed with which the items sell out, the leaks have become integral to the purchasing decision (although that's probably overstating the importance). I think many have relied on this as the only way to make an informed decision on what they actually want to purchase. But, this point is slightly devalued now that items tend to sit in store for longer.

Can I ask, if you don't support leaks, why comment on what you've seen? Surely this just fuels the behaviour?

You're kidding, right? A movie trailer very often features clips, sounds, and cuts that don't appear in the final film. The trailer is an advert for the movie—it's incredibly simplistic to say it's simply the movie but smaller.

But, maybe more importantly—why are you in the Acronym thread complaining that people want to know what the new Acronym products are?

We don't know why Errolson decided to clamp down on subnet membership, but if I had to bet I'd say it had more to do with guys like 1K drawing "inspiration" from unreleased stuff for his own products.

my best investment in terms of cost / usage has been the atom lt.  i have worn that thing everyday for i dont know how long.  it is such a good piece that i'm honestly amazed at 1) how well it keeps you warm while being light 2) does not ever get too hot (good temp regulation) and 3) is somehow holding up (minimal igns of wear even though i've abused the hell out of it).  i will wear this jacket until it dies

this seems a bit pretentious when you yourself look at leaks? it seems silly that you don't get the natural human reaction to being excited for unreleased and upcoming products about a brand you appreciate (whether or not they are final renditions of product releases). the re-release of the acronym prestos and the leaked samples were a perfect example of the community being excited and creating dialogue about a product and the potential direction it could take even if you couldn't purchase it.

Back in the day I was taking advantage of poor security of subnet and watching all the stuff in advance, sooner to realize that it's not making my life and acrnm experience any better. I bet that if you think about it, few pictures (no description) of what items will be available in 9 months, won't make you decide better on what to buy. Yes there was a time when all the inventory went superfast, but if you check the site now you can still see some SS18 items sit there. As if would not be enough that erlsn posts the collection on his instagram few days before drop. 

movie trailer vs. movie: both are sequences of moving images

leaks vs. acrnm piece irl: one is just few images taken out of context, second is functional fabric made garment

Surely it look elitist, but for me it was a good way how to afford the gear: there was a small discount and the payment was split in two and they were like 6 month apart, so it was a lighter impact on the wallet (even when the first one was march). So when I skipped a season and forgot about the 50% already paid it was quite ok. I ordered for friends too and ended up passing my credentials for nike drops to someone who will actually use it. Does it still sound elitist to you?

I commented on seeing the leaks because I thought many of you have too (as it was quite common for sufu people).

Speaking of leaks...could be wrong but this seems to be a new insulator as seen on Erlsn's IG.

you maybe right, it is also possible that he is wearing an insulator like bomber outside a GT

Split personality: missing the good old talk about collection with no pics posted / not liking leaks. Sorry for not download the pictures.
