What is the general feedback on the PX? How warm is the fabric, is it worth the price tag, and is it as fragile as it looks?

Also, what shoes are P23A-S owners pairing with? I have a pair in black, love the fit, but always find myself doubting my choice of shoe when I wear them.

I’ve been wearing the white j74 on and off for weeks just under a shell. It does its job if it gets a bit nippy out but not sure how well it will hold up in really cold weather. I’m bringing it with me to travel so we’ll see. Price is subjective but I wish it was a little cheaper after customs fees. Fabric looks flimsy as it’s see through but it is ripstop and I’ve had no problems with it so far. Shows stains easily but that just tells me it’s time to wash it haha.

I've found that the J74 is equivalent to a 500-400gsm fleece so it's really nice as an layering piece; in that regard the two way hand pockets are amazing to store things when wearing a shell. If it had holster pockets + the front waist pocket the 74 would be the ideal ACRNM temperate climate insulator for me.

Copped myself a pair of danner usmc rat non goretex version to go with my p23a-s raf. For sure it might lean the side of mall warlord or so but the combo should be a go-anytime solution. Also being quite a while the lovely Acrnm look book highly recommend  the sisp Chelsea boot by dimme.

Personnal any slip on either plain or checkerboard would be my fav too.

Tbh a lot of shoes pair well with the P23 silhouette. Slip ons, mid & high tops, boots, slippers, Jordan 1s, Vans.

While we on the topic of giving thoughts and opinions on pieces can i hear what you guys think about the P22's?

I've yet to get my first ACR pants and aiming to get P10, P24A and P23A eventually there's a cheap pair of P22's on grailed rn and deciding whether to cop or not.

They're culottes or, if you're a weeaboo, hakama pants. I think they're unremarkable in terms of wide leg pants.

My opinion on top tier Acronym panting: ultrawide P30, wide P16A, loose P24A, regular P20, slim P10.

i think this comes down to body proportion. 

I was saying the size of the clothes worn by the model is not described accurately. It seems a large for P24A-S, and medium for J65. But I am probably wrong.

Quick question about logo tape, some of them have logo on the left, any body know why?

Something like this, is this authentic?

The position of the logo varies, eg. the the right on J46U, to the left on J69.

The quality of the bottom label looks a little sus though... looks very messy/cheap in comparison to mine and the one at the top.

Thanks @Kamikaze, @Xu Jianfeng, @CARLOOA and @X.bee for the feedback, much appreciated.

Very interested in trying out the J74... It seems that both of you are quite positive about the fabric. Am I right in understanding that it's much more durable than it looks, or is it the new XPAC foil?

Re the P23A's... I echo your sentiments for slip ons and boots, although the latter, as Xu pointed out, can be a little over the top. But then again, "over the top" is pretty much the P23A in a nutshell.

I have no idea I only have a J47TS-GT in hand which the logo on the right, it really confuse me...

How about the J1A showing above? What do you thing in terms of authenticity?

This is mine J74, worn twice with J47TS and this happened...

Don't worry about the position of the logo, both versions are used.

The J1A looks authentic to me... certainly all the obvious signs (labels, zippers, micro-grid, colouration) look good. But better to ask someone who owns one. Something looks a little odd on the spec sheet, but I'm probably mistaken.

Normal wear, did nothing crazy.

Like a tiny little piece of silk came out from the outer fabric (?), not sure is that a appropriate explanation since I can't speak English properly (sad)...

Speaking about the fabric, it feels like silk in hand but definitely more durable. XPAC is way way more durable than this.

Ah, gotcha... I thought that was dirt on my screen!

Thanks for the info... I'm thinking I might need to pick one up to see. The white looks incredible.

No worry man.

My friend's conclusion: white looks better in picture and black looks better in hand.

But I can assure you it's fire when you wear it.

I can only speak on the white but it has held up well in that area which I thought would be easiest to stain.

The white is so beautiful.

It is. I had both colors in hand and kept the white one. It's really cool. I use the jacket as midlayer more or less nonstop since November. Works totally good for me and I am very happy with the light, easy to wear and warm but not too warm jacket. Not sure if the jacket will work for longer time in the cold but for the winter in Munich as mid it was sufficient. I took the Large size because M was very tight and I like the loose look which Lenny had on the pics. Normally I take Medium for all of my acronym tops.

We had a cold snap in Seattle recently. I can say under 40F static warmth is not adequate under a shell. If you’re active quite a bit it’ll be fine since polartec alpha is meant for activity insulation. Also, most alpha insulated garments are made with wind permeable faces so keep that in mind.

Question for the DIY guys.. is DS a material that can be easily dyed & have color hold for more than a few washes? Considering opting for a J72 in white instead of waiting for a black to pop up.

<strike>DS holds color extremely well</strike>

 

edit: Misread your question. No idea how dryskin would hold a dye. My guess is not very well. I wouldn’t risk it, personally.
