There haven't been (m)any J1A2.2 photos with the slim collar down. Owners, fit pics pl0x. Also, I don't think that restock is happening, at least in goretex.

I was 214 lbs and lost 42 lbs. Maybe j36 is not uncomfortable and I'm just used to wear loose jackets. While not exactly decided to change it to a larger size or not.

Just to give an alternative opinion on the J36 sizing, I'm usually betweeen S and M on acrnm jackets (wearing M for both J28 and J1A), and I went with S for the J36 and totally happy with it. It really comes down to whether you want a tanky outer shell under which you stack a liner and other layers. I wanted a profile-fitting spring/fall jacket that I can wear without a liner and it's a perfect fit for that purpose. I can even wear it on top of a shirt+sweater without a problem.

I used similar terms when discussing this with @lopiteaux in DMs. I think most people, myself included, are/were treating the 36 like a shell meant to potentially be worn over multiple layers as opposed to a more fitted jacket meant to be worn next to skin or with a thin layer underneath. Approaching it from that perspective the sizing makes more sense IMO.

I can get a light hoody like my HD4 under mine but basically - this ^^ ...although it does have the zipper to add liners. I went my usual size and I like it so much it actually makes me want to get rid of the rest of my collection. It's that good I am seriously considering trying to get another in black which is nuts tbh. Sorry to hear it didn't work out for so many people but I'm loving the thing!

Great to hear. And yeah, I think it’s telling that The J-72 is featured in the mothersite fit pics as a liner. Shit is pretty thin.

Thanks @DROVES, @X.bee.

I knew that the price was lowered for US buyers due to the additional import charges, but didn't expect the difference to be ~10%. UK/EU retail comes in at ~$1,850.

I This is precisely the reason people won’t share the information with some people. Because they can’t keep it to themselves.   

Like, this isn’t gonna be the place to chase internet points. Logically, what’s the endgame here? You gonna bot the drop and increase hype and visibility? You want to ingratiate yourself with random resellers or newbies? This is a silly place to publicize the information if you want to purchase at retail. Talk about it on Discord or WeChat, Kakao, or GroupMe.

All this information is already public, I'm not a subnet member, just stumbled on a Twitter thread which linked me to what I realized was the portfolio website of the website designers of acrnm.com. I found the photo included showing off unreleased items. Honestly thought I found a plethora of information to share but didn't realize the publicity it would've generated. Subnet is members-only for a reason and I don't want to perpetuate backdoor leaks therefore I've removed my shared post.

^ on the boat of people who don’t have access but I think there’s some sensitivity towards how it (supposedly) will affect prices. internet shame aside, that picture has been publically available to anyone who’d really take a little time to dig for it, and has helped many nEwBiEs including myself make wiser purchases.

this is no private information and I bet most of the item codes written there is just for design testing purposes or someone making fun. no way this could have slipped by accident.

Most people sell(at least on sufu) j36 because it doesn't fit. Someone likes such slim fit. But as I compared above, j36-s size M is tighter from the usual size M.

You couldn't be more wrong LOL I'm sure there's some people selling because it doesn't fit the way they want it but information was leaked on multiple sources. And the moment that started happening people started selling before they even received their pieces.

There was some stuff that happened this season that is either: 1) best guerrilla marketing ever OR 2) total screwup on website admin. I'm leaning toward total screwup on admin.

I guess it's built upon trust with members who decide whether to share info with you or not. Leaks have become less & less because of the multitude of resellers among us, many who post regularly. Either way I remember looking at that company's portfolio months back, though they didnt have that updated subnet product list.
