would be shocked if they restocked the j1a again.  have they ever stocked an item 3x within a year before? (initial release +2 restocks) guessing not since this is the first time they've done an NA category but seems like it would be overkill

I guess they had problems to produce the volume to prepare stock for the first release this year. So this is the volume that was initially planned.

Hi guys. I wanted to see what the SuFu Acronym community has to say about this piece. 

I am almost certain it’s a sample version of the E-J1A from (I think) 2008. What points me to this being a sample is the lack of stitching around where the flak pocket would normally be(highlighted in red), which means no pocket was ever attached to the jacket. 

The jacket needs some work but is in overall great condition and I’m glad I picked it up. Please let me know your thoughts, especially whether you think it’s a sample or not.

looks like a ss08 EJ1A, someone might removed the pocket

The large stitching on the front does not make ANY sense at all.

Nice summary, and I quite appreciate the jacket's roomy and smooth fit meet the stiffness of gt pro. 

 I was just wondering what is the velco for on chest pocket and sleeve bits? 

I think the idea is you put some military patches on like J16

Yeah, it’s a call back to military style kit where you oftimes need/want to switch out patches for different duties/events/general flair

Isn't the front flak pouch sewn all the way around? Not just in two spots? I don't see how you could remove the stitching for the pouch without leaving permanent/noticeable visual blemishes.

He highlighted the two spots cause theres already a stitch on the right. Top is left open for mezzanine pocket.

I believe it’s identical in every way to the 08 J1A, including zippers, gravity pockets, nextec Epic tag, interops, etc etc. 

The stitching on the right of the front panel is for the inside pocket as you can see here.

Usually most samples come in size M. Erlsn wears medium as well and I believe he is the main testing person.

The hood is paclite? I checked the J1A video again and the hood looks to be E- as well as the whole jacket. However there was a E-J1A on grailed in size L that had paclite hood, but came with the pocket and olive jacketsling (while yours looks like there is a black one) I also think someone removed the flak pocket, as @Dolphinski pointed, noone ever had samples.

There are Acronym samples, @benta9000 has one.

Edit: so not strictly an Acronym sample, my apologies

Glad to hear someone’s order went smooth.

I ordered the J1A as well. Still haven't heard anything. As seen above, ive received both a payment confirmed email as well as a order denied email.

i have confirmation from paypal that Acronym has in fact received my payment within 6 minutes of my order. And the cash is in acronyms account. 

Really hoping to hear back from them by tomorrow...

Anyone who ordered P30A got their package shipped? I've got UPS tracking number last friday, but UPS site says shipment is still even not in their facility. Is it normal?

Depending on your order number yes, completely normal. Mine was mid-1700s and arrived today.

Yep, got my shipping on Friday, due to arrive Wednesday. I wouldn't worry, i'm sure it'll get shipped today, they're probably just swapped with all the P30 and J1A orders.

Got confirmation on my order this morning. I guess the "Order denied" email was just an automated message.
Now awaiting tracking info.

Dogspeed everyone.

Does anyone have any tips on getting a return package out of German customs? My return package has been stuck in there for a few days now. I marked it just as acrnm told me to. I emailed them with no response so far. 

I really wish acrnm would just print out a ups return label for its customers.. 

edit - ah apparently i was suppose to mark the package value as zero along with saying it has no commercial value. didn't do the former but i did the latter. shit.

The long mod seems like it might fit perfectly inside the DAF-1 neoprene. Great write up, good pic examples.
