Yes. Unfortunately. The P16A is a much better design IMO. I’m frankly surprised the went with the same pocket design (roughly) as the P10-A. I had a pair in CH and found the pockets very fiddley and always needed two hands to close unless opened under certain circumstances. I love the look of the P10-A style pockets architecturally, but in practice...

I can only imagine how poorly they perform with DS or Epic. Stotz probably performs a bit better due to its relative rigidity but I’d imagine the results are negligible. 

There are 2 versions of zippers on p10a. WR  and reverse coil (p10a from FW1617). Reverse coil zipper can be opened super easily by one hand. WR requires a little more effort but I always use only one hand.

Please pray those are not the P10A-DS.

KTC factory has huge history and produce well-made garments.

It's not ordinary China factory.

That is not my main concern, I have nothing against anything made in China. The main problem is that I have to pay around 30% more for duties if items are made in China vs tax-free for made in EU garments.

They dont look like p10a if that is any consolation....but it does look like they will ramp up production in china....which doesnt help your situation at all.

It really sucks, I really wish they would mention where the garment is made, and not just the fabric specifications.

I'd like to know too. Hopefully people here who bought stuff can eventually chime-in. Unfortunately it is acceptable for people to buy things without knowing the final cost. Not a jab at Acronym rather just western culture in general where you've always had to calculate the sales tax yourself. Don't get me started on tipping.

I get the impression that it's too early for anything other than the new J1-A to be MIC, but I wouldn't be too surprised if some of these new trousers were.

I wasn’t aware of the difference in zippers, thanks for that. Do you happen to know which fabrics had which zips? Be curious to try the different styles out. The ones on my CH weren’t impossible to close one handed, I just felt they were just annoying enough at certain angles that it was faster and easier to use two hands at times.

ACRNM.

Not limited to anyone even remotely talented in martial arts, this all-inclusive archetype is prevalent in a cyberpunk culture obsessed with avant-garde high fashion from Europe and technically advanced fashion from Japan.

With a simple color palette of blacks, greens, and whites, the tech ninja looks like, well, a goth bank robber. Though the final results may perplex, confuse, and scare young children, we must acknowledge the dozens of deep pockets within pockets and discipline of any Acronymjutsu disciple as this rare look is difficult to achieve.

Preferring the comforts of one another on 15 year old online forums to outsiders who think they look like a Star Wars character, the Acronym connoisseur is a pack animal, following even the slightest movements of their alpha Ærrolson Who?

According to the info on mothersite:

J36-S: Made in Switzerland

P10A-E: Made in USA

P32-DS and P32-S: Made in Switzerland

Interesting there're no manufacturing location info for J41/J76

Those are referring to the "Fabric Technology" and where the Fabric is made and not where the actual Garment is made.

P10a-Ch and p10a-s from FW1617 had reverse coil zippers. Earlier versions had a different thinner -ch fabric (I have p10a-CH from fw1516 in night) and WR zippers. Yep, pretty annoying and it was faster with both hands, but acronymjutsu skill will solve the problem. 

New p10a-e has 5mm full metal pullers instead of 3mm with plastic+metal pullers tho.

I would like to understand why the zippers on WHITE J76 are IVORY, when there is clear snow white zipper option from YKK and yet they walked the extra mile to perfectly match the ALPHAGREEN zippers on P10A cuffs.

and what's up with the spurs x acrnm thing?

I feel the choice to go with the ivory zippers was due to the fact that the GT is actually milk-white rather than pure white. I imagine the ivory looks better with the milky shade rather than a starkly contrasting pure white. 

Idk. just my 2 cents.

They went out of their way to choose a contrast laminated texture for the tape on the black colorway so the basic assumption would be that they want to highlight that feature

Interesting - I am in the garment business myself and we have our label here in LA (US) our fabrics from Korea but we never mention that.

I have a feeling theirs some neat stuff coming, part 1 was a teaser; The funny thing is I am in a market for a J47A/TS and though I cannot find one in my size this is a sign that I just might save and pull the trigger on the new drop.

Ok I know I keep asking this, but Raf in person just looks brown to me. Seeing the J36 & P32 both in Raf stotz I'm even more confused, they look like 2 different shades to me. Am I trippin out?? I passed on the Raf 36 like I did the Raf P23a & went with black. Wish they would just make a straight olive colorway.
