How often does the 3a-1 usually get a new iteration? The last one came out like October last year, how likely is it that we will see a new iteration/restock this year?

It depends. There have been years without a release, and years where there have been multiple releases (last year being an example of the latter, where they released the foil iteration in January, and the XPAC in October).

I personally see a restock this year as being unlikely, given that there are still plenty of other 3A's sitting on the shelves, but this is just speculation.

I’ve owned my 3ts laminate for close to 3 years, worn it almost daily, it’s still in excellent condition, works with almost the entirety of my wardrobe and I’m super happy with it overall. Buuuuuut I still have a constant itch for that damn green x-pac 3ts...

I know that feel... I'm extremely content with my laminate, and it's my daily, with the foil being an occasional (can you say, "fragile"?)... I passed my black X-PAC 3A-1 on after a couple of months, but have been itching for the green. It's really, really grown on me. I'd love to see what it looks like after a couple of years, as the fabric was very impressive.

I am sending back my ACR specs tomorrow, might have to just go ahead and flip that over into a 3ts... hmmmm...

 Can anybody comment on the finish on the green X-PAC, and or PM some pics in different light?

Not as deep a green in product shots, actually much better in person imho. I wouldn't mind having an olive 3a-1 again. I'll PM you some shots.

Agree. Took this photo in low light and is more olive in person.

Mmh, thats the answer i expected, sadly. Let's see though.

I wouldn't mind picking up one of the "old" laminate 3a-1s .. but the only one on grailed right now is for sale for like 2000$ :rolleyes: The olive x-pac ones (3a-1 and 3a-3ts) are also quite nice (also almost all attachments are still available on olive at acrnm) but im not sure if the military vibe it has isn't a bit too strong for me.

My personal favourite is the L2 laminate from SS15. They usually sell for around $1,200-1,300.

Also worth mentioning that the older limonta variant ages beautifully. These rarely come to market, and are often ignored because they appear beat and faded - which ironically is part of the charm.

could not agree more. got mine from everyone’s favorite @Xu Jianfeng and have used it almost every day since i got it. the fabric patinas extremely well and remains durable and without any holes to this day :)  first photo is the day i got it and the second is a full year later. can’t sing it’s praises enough.

holy moly what a synced just uploading some pics lol.

yeah that one you rocks and my current one (both limonta) are miraculously patinad and faded at mk2 areas, but I might still list the real first 3a-1 as my fav as it’s no damn compromise day one and still feels more solid than xpac and lighter than later limonta version( guess it’s still cotton but no more details bout it)

On the subject of 3ts's are they capable of fitting 13in laptops without struggling to insert it?

My 15" is tricky to get in, I'd expect a 13" will be easy assuming it does not have a thick cover/sleeve.

13in laptop will fit but I wouldn't recommend it. You’ll end up losing the way the bag contours to you and instead have 3-4 stiff corners poking out which probably isn’t best for these bags (especially considering what they’re made of). Definitley works but better off with a 5/8/13 for 13in laptops imo.

What's worse than champagnePapi rocking acronym? 

Acronym/Drake dickriders posting the picture in their little Instagram stories, tagging erlsn.acr and champagnepapi 

to have a .01% chance that they notice you... 

 

Then simultaneously acting like their annoyed that said champagnePapi is wearing ACR....:blink2:

I was also cringing a little at how many of the ACRONYM insiders reposted the images.

Agreed -- that is solely what I'm referencing.  If it was some newjacks who just got into ACR that would be one thing.

 

For enthusiasts to be reposting those images is just embarrassing, next level cringey.  Ya'll need Drake to validate your purchases for you? :ph34r:

I was more referring to Errolson & Co... Maybe "cringing" is the wrong word, but it does feel a little out of place to me. I understand the John Mayer connection, given his knowledge and taste in clothing (rather than his music), but Drake just comes across as a little shallow.

But, I'm nitpicking. I don't know any of them personally, but from what I can tell, they're all very genuine and humble, and I guess we're all entitled to feel proud if something you made is put on the world stage.

TL/DR: Whatever, to each their own, I'm certainly not going to rate anyone's stoke!

I don’t know if his stylist picked it out or if he did but I think still think it’s cool when people who don’t normally wear acr do, especially a piece that you dont see often. Guarantee id still post anyone wearing acrnm on the gram even if someone that i don’t particularly care about sports it cause they are wearing it in their own way. I don’t really care about  Oprah Winfrey but if she decided to go to a sporting event in some acrnm jawnz I’d be hyped.
