Finally grabbed the P30A-DS.  I'm impressed with almost everything about them, except I'm definitely getting the 'bulging out' diaper look in the back, which some people mentioned.   Really noticeable when looking from the side.  I'm curious how much (or how soon) this will go away as the DS fabric loses some of its initial crispness /rigidity.  

Thanks! 

just start walking, it'll even out after a few steps

Everybody's talking about the J1L-GT but that J74(J40-L, my bad)? Good lord, I don't think I've ever been this weak at the knees...

Also maybe a second drop for glasses? Unless someone can ID these.

Ah.. Right 74 has a hood & different pocket dimensions. Sorry about that, I didn't even know about this J40-L! Thanks for the info :)

That J40 looks a lot cooler (what looks like) beaten up ... was never a fan back in the day of that silhouette at all with the weird long arms but especially the leather one! This looks great though.

I'm just baffled that the early aughties matrix/columbine look is actually considered cool by some.

I don’t get the hype with rigards. Look like trash to me.

I think it's just that they have a very Japanese streetwear/Neo-noire/Dystopian aesthetic, which pretty much sums up a large amount of acr heads, from my experience. Not so much technical. Still think they look good.

That J40L was on sale everywhere 

Yeah because it was ~$5,000. Even on sale it was still twice as expensive as other ACR jackets at the time. And the long arms turned me off the J40 (I sold my CH)

I finally gave in and found a decent tailor who would shorten the arms. Tired of missing out on nice jackets.

Errolson needs a sizing intervention. Mans shouldn’t be wearing mediums no more

How do you iron your dryskin garments? Doing it on low/synthetics temp., but i recently noticed some marks from the seams that are below (i.e. from pockets). Not looking good at all and im not sure if this can be fixed. Always thought you need this to re-activate the DWR. Did this ever happen to anyone else?

I’ll be honest, I’ve done very little research. I’m going to Chicago today and started looming at shops, not expecting much other than checking out Nike and nikelab and maybe some acg pieces to add to my new obsession with Salomon ADV and my new season ACG cargo, and stumbled on Notre Shop that stock Acronym.

I doubt I’ll buy anything - I’m house shopping - but may be worth a look.

I read the last few pages and see there are concerns about quality, which is unfortunate given the cost. I’m used to raw denim and the like, and don’t wash my pants much at all. Recently I’ve been back to wearing my lululemon and lululemon lab pants and have lived in my Patagonia rain jacket and down sweater..

My question is should I concern myself about recent quality? Additionally, can someone explain pant sizing? Am I safe to get a waist that’s 2” bigger than my denim and the rest will fall into place and not be tight, but also not too harem pants?

@knucks

depends on what pant ur referring to, ultra wide pants are somehow free size and you should have more concern on the length. i am 170cm, 70kg, pant waist size is usually 30 or 32. and wear xs for the p30a-ds and s for p23a-s.

not sure about p10's since everyone has mixed opinions on sizing, best way to know is to try if you can.

as far as quality goes, yeah some are faulty and some are ok.

10 days after daily wear of the la6b-ad (FW1920), 1 of my button cracked and one of the mesh became loose.

9 months after daily wear of the p30-ch (SS18, but bought secondhand), a tiny hole on the drop crotch developed, though i chose CH over any other because i read someone said that CH is indestructable, but nah, a tiny hole developed on the drop crotch.

ive also seen many jackets made in FO material also broken (J63a-fo, FW1819), whereas the PB material jackets (J62-pb, J63-pb SS17) which were previously released aged finer CMIIW tho.

hope this helps
