It doesn’t matter either way. Your snitch post is bullshit regardless.

So beyond the whole reseller bot thing @segue there’s also the repro market. If leaks get out early, the fast fashion fucks can start pumping shitty reps out into the wild sooner than later which can make authentication that much harder before more of the genuine pieces are in hand to set the metric so to speak. 

DONT FUCKING LEAK YOU ANIMALS

So we’re still talking about this.

you’re missing my point. I’m talking about hotoveli giving a “leak” 2 days prior to a drop and not whatever timeline you had mentioned whenever before their announcement today which is why this information was important and not just ‘bullshit.’  If that snitch email i was referring to a leak from a month ago your repro argument MIGHT make sense but 2 days before?  How quickly can fashion fucks create and make these or plan the pattern making for these items within a 2 day span. For the most part they can’t even begin manufacturing or planning for these since they need to get their hands on the actual product first, create patterns, source materials, then figure out manufacturing.  My guess is that 2 days is negligible which is why getting sour for hotoveli giving out the link to pics 2 days and crying about a leak is getting old.

Can we all stop arguing about stupid shit. It was bad enough with the dumb hood debate and that was only like four responses. This is also a part of the reason the site is dying, yall are too dismissive and it really kills off potential conversations. 

 

Does anyone feel like the J79TS-GT is basically a "new J1A"? And don't take that as a complaint, I like the jacket and it feels super similar, like a modern J1A and I love that idea. Like Halo 3 to Halo Reach. I do feel like the jacket is super extreme looking though, and I personally would never wear it in public because I would not want the attention it would attract. I really hope someone does a video of it because it seems like it has a ton of sick intricatic details. Hope we get a ventile version, blablablafabric dreams. 

I'd love to hear everyone's opinion on this piece in specific.

I don't know what is your relationship with hotoveli or acronym. I don't know if you have closed the dropbox right after you saw it contains leaks (just capturing the source). Telling them that someone leaked their pics is not any white hat hacker reporting critical exploit. It might feed the resellers (if they were remotely interested in anything else than 30s and 1As) but it might also give you the extra time to investigate the items and decide what you really want (instead of investigating after the drop and missing them because someone instacopped item to return later). That's probably why hotoveli provided someone with the files too. These few days will not help any fakers - if they want to reproduce closest to 1:1 they have to buy the item anyway.

Whistleblower.

Yeah its kind of a sick Jacket, i also love the design of the hood a lot, all in all the pockets in combination with the TS does make it look very aggressive/military looking. I agree with you that i would probably not wear it in public because of this reason. For me, it feels more like a successor of J28 rather than J1A but thats just my opinion.

For me, the highlight of this drop for me is probably the J61-GTV. The GTV just looks so luxe, and the olive zipper and interops details really add something to it. Not sure if an A-Frame Parka is something for me because of it being so wide, also the price is like the highest of the collection but where not here to discuss this again i guess.

Curious to see fitpics of P33 because i'm not sure how to feel about this one yet. I also still hope there will be a release of the inverted xpac 3a-1 in the near future as this one is growing on me a lot!

SUPER excited for j29, or any blazer, return ... but PX is probably the least exciting material choice. While I love my j74, don’t really understand the insulated blazer decision. Especially seeing that SD.....

To me it’s a season the direction might to please the long term users. Those blazers and modified version of bdu p1 into that p34 right?

The problem is actually the dilemma here, honestly it’s not reaching my expectations as for those original issues: name the clean cut of j29 in ch and cotton(the details fade hard on px). New bees are definitely not the most potential users of these blazers, yet guys being wearing ss-j5 or l-j11 or l-v3ts, they gonna find the price hike and yet non obviously improvements.

For the brand itself it might take like 2 more seasons to relocate to sync with the whole situation. And if you really want some pieces  this season my advice is actually sit back to some sale chances( you know when these happen back in the days, similar situation)

Hood barely goes over my face and sleeves goes behind my wrist if I reach my hand upwards. Chest and tummy fits well though. If I size up will it look derpy?

I know I’m late but wouldn’t hurt to size up tbh

Times changing, S/M sitting in stock for more than 10 seconds on both the flagship goretex pieces. thank god, let us suffer either high prices or impossibly fast selling out, but not both anymore.

^ i think e's instagram being absent of any news is definitely helping. 

is that a tease of the new nike collab shoes that are heavily featured in the new drop? oops nm those are the a cold wall collabs.

so i'm guessing that this season will have two separate drops as there's still some stuff that haven't been uploaded yet

Are we expecting another release in the next week or two with additional jacket/baselayers/pants? 

I really want to love some of the new pieces like the J29-PX, but I completely agree with the above, if it were a Schoeller DS with a polar lining I think it would hit the marks, but looking like a liner takes away from the the blazer construction especially with the thread tension on PX. It's a great late 80's blazer vibe and I'm into it, but I think I'm just waiting for the LA6B-AD...

I went to hotoveli this morning. Sucks for me, ACRNM is online-only for them now, but I was still able to get a NG4 ! and see the other pieces in person

  • There is definitely a second drop coming
  • J79 is wild, i'd look real hard at it if I didn't already have a J1A
  • J77 fabric is incredible in person, but not at that price for me :'(

Would love a J40-L in XXL!!  That item is a lifer that will only get better with age.

Has anyone had the p10a-DS for a while now? I was wondering if the cargo pocket edges soften up / fold over to make them less prominent. Love my p10ts-DS but was put off the p10a-s as the squared off bit of material around the rounded zip left like I had a4 folders stuck to my legs.

might be early but has anyone tried on the 79 in store? for a straight cut the measurements look rather slim if cut to accommodate a liner

That's the look.

@agentbuca is indeed the look as @Yardsale indicated. I can say that the corners are not as noticeable from all angles. From some they look really pointy and others they kind of blend in. It's a great styling cue IMO. It makes the pants look quite different as you walk past/around someone and takes them from "oh here are some tapered pants with pockets" into something really unique.

I usually wear a medium in ACR jackets. Was able to comfortably layer an insulator underneath the small with little to no restriction. For reference I'm 5'9 145lb. The medium was clearly too big even with an insulator for me personally.

It fits very wide, but it is controlled chaos. I would say it blurs the line between straight and loose.
