Hey. What the difference between old and new iteration of p10-ds from recent drop? Only the cf plastic button?

The last iteration of p10-s has a "new", thinner stotz fabric, olive (if RAF) ankle zippers, cf plastic button instead of metal snap, wider phone pocket. 

It’s my understanding from reading on here and talking to fellow members that the DS is more wear resistant, less likely to pill, and slightly ‘heavier’. I’ve not owned the previous iterations so can’t say for sure. I only own the S15-DS which is a thinner version of the old DS as far as I know. The face of the fabric on the new DS feels silkier and less coarse than the DS on the S15 IMO.

Is there any reason to prefer the J47A over the J47TS?

You don't have to buy any modulars to have all your pockets.

Quality-wise, (older production vs newer production), are there any differences?

it really depends on the garment. normally i prefer newer goretex models out of the higher chance that the microgrid isnt prone to delam. Depending on age, nature of use, and care, those factors can result in a higher possibility of compromise to the fabric and/or seam tape but since the 47a came out 3-4 years ago, I don't think that will be as big of an issue as opposed to comparing it with a shell from say maybe 10 years ago since the gore tex pro fabric itself improved (i forget which year it increased a substantial amount of breathability).

J47a has interops with all the bells and whistles 

j32 and j27 are “plain” in terms of acrnm jackets but they are great jackets in their own right 

j58 isn’t a shell

I know the j58 isnt a shell, and I hate what ppl are reselling them for; for a "insulator!"

 

I like the simplicity of the j32/j27; And I get now why the j47 resells for more. Its the higher notch jacket. I just do not know what to buy as my first acronym piece!

I’ll say that I’ve only owned the j28, j1a, j68, j16, and the j47 and I’ve gotten rid of all of them except my 47. As of now it’s my favorite jacket (so far) because of the stand up hood and collar, gigantic left pocket and sub pocket, and slim profile fit. J1a is a close second and I’d like to get my hands on a j36 when they rerelease it sometime in the future whenever that will be :)

Lol yup, he doesn’t have proof of purchase but looks reputable on Grailed. Theirs 2 other listings for less tho.

 

plus I am not sure how they run size wise, true to size ? Oversized ?

Not everyone will keep their proof of purchase. Best to learn to legit check then. 

J47 runs tts to a bit slim imo.

For most brands, I usually Google the product designer ID, then look for Japanese websites because its their custom to do actual product measurements before listing on their website (since in Japan they don't have to take returns). This way you get a sense of the fit.

@neromancer Learned my lesson from the last drop. My order went through but canceled later due to pending communication between paypal & Chase. I guess it depends on your bank, but I have a couple K loaded up on my paypal just in case. Didn't help in the end tho since I missed the release while at work.. :dry:

I think maybe it has to do with stock as well. I’ve gotten the fraud block before but because it was not a size as in demand it was fine?
