Is the J78-WS almost identical to the J50-WS? The only thing I could tell that was different was the sleeve and arm pocket detail. No hate, I own the J50 and love it to bits.

Yeah. It fits a bit bigger and is longer in the body. I own the 50ws in M and tried the 78ws on (M as well). If you own the 50, the 78 is highly skippable. The 78 felt marginally warmer though, shrug. The fact that it doesn’t have auxzip is whack. 

re comment on length of trousers - I’m wearing the cropped ones in the pic. The full length ones almost look identical, but in a more formal fabric.

On Instagram Errolson stated to keep the 78 as minimal as possible for the bomber, hence no aux zip.

I don't know if the -WS version of the J50 had additional changes, but I have a J50-S and they are pretty similar, yes. The main difference aside from the lack of sleeve pocket is that the hand pockets on the J78 wrap backwards as well as forwards, so there is extra capacity to stash things there if you want them accessible without unzipping the jacket. The YKK center zip on the J78 is also a bit nicer than the Raccagni ones on the J50-S.

Did anyone ever have success in prescription lens retrofit on their ACR frames?

Be keen to know the results.

It's great. This cut is one of my favs so im a bit biased. I'm glad that acronym is adding variety in texture (even though some of the knits are ugly as sin), cuz it helps break up the cosplay/costume look. It's a fairly warm mid/base layer. Wore it under my J51 in NYC today and it kept me very warm.

Both pics below w/ the P33

Is there an additional pocket on J78 under armpit? confused, since the total pockets were stated as 4.  

Aren't they the interior pockets? Copy should really list as 6 pockets total

which spray do u use?

Got them off of eBay. Listed as a friends and family pair. They don’t look like they’ve been sprayed or painted, the production quality is impeccable. Believe it or not I think they might actually be legit. Here’s a video that shows closer details:

Yes, those are the interior ones, which can be accessed from two sides (both zips for each pocket are inside the coat though). If you count the backwards-facing side pockets as separate, more like 6 on the jacket, yeah.

Dont want to rain on your parade, I would be skeptical about them if they dont come with the numbered card.

Oic they’re the same pocket lol. I thought they were separate compartments vs dual access. Thanks for clarifying.

Worked for Nike for ~5 years and nothing I love more than some samples/promos and f&f shit. And to be honest my hunch is telling me that there's nothing to be skeptical about! Those look fine. Seen plenty of influencers toss to the side whatever cool gear they get, try to return it, sell it online- whataveyou. Often sans all the packaging because they've thrown it out lol. You've come across a great find! The best way to tell difference or if they're indeed real or just a custom though is if you share with us a pic of the inner tag! Usually it'll say promo or something different than the GR model.

The bottom pic of those reminds me of dentist fillings/dirty grills. I’d rather have the thirsty bandits with matte sand colored cells

Yeah the VMs are legit. No spray can achieve a chrome effect that well. Nice find.

Crazy find man! Definitely not sprayed, it's way too even and flawless of a chrome finish to be some hand-spray job. the knit looks perfect too.

But why the caption of the photo says"Exterior JacketSlingǽ anchor loop"? I thought there is an entrance to the pocket from outside as well.

Thanks for the advice on the tag, figured they were legit once I checked the tag and noticed promo. Already got them in a mirrored display case. Only ended up paying 300 for them.
