Totally different note, can anyone gimme some info on the J47TS-GT? The product pics make it look like it fits slim for Acronym, slimmer than the J1A. Is that right? 

You're correct in that it is slimmer than the j1a, could be due to the fact that it's constructed more like a singular piece than the boxy 1a.

I’ve owned both the J1A and J47. Without referring to spec sheets, the J47 definitely has a roomier fit. Was unable to comfortably wear my J58 and J1A together without it being too restricting and ended up parting ways with it (J1A) for this reason.

I can’t tell if you’re trolling or not, but this is an objectively wrong take lol. The 47 is for sure cut slimmer than the 1a.

You do realize that measurements don’t always tell you how a garment fits right...

Which specific iteration of the J47 did you own? I'm trying to nail this down because I'm kinda between sizes on the J1A.

So then what do you use for reference? Fit impressions from others who have personally owned and worn the items? Great, because that's what I am providing you here.

The J1A has much narrower shoulders as well as a tighter chest block than the J47. Throw an insulator into the mix and you will learn very quickly which silhouette fits roomier.

Every J1 I've worn (J1A-S, J1TS-S, J1A-GT 2.2) has felt roomier than every J47 I've worn (J47-GT, J47R-GT, J47TS-GT) and more suited for accommodating liners

Does having both allow me to use that for reference? Pffft. At least 3-4 people here I know have both and feel the same way.  :rolleyes:

Do the new things ship from China? I don't know the answer to your question either.

I am curious to find out why Kamikaze is asking about China tariffs. Are 'made in china' products, shipped from other nations, actually being hit with tariffs?

MIC products get taxed higher in us and Canada. They look at production origin, not shipping origin.

Thanks for that, I just didn't know whether the package declares that it's a MiC product :)

All packages that gets shipped include a commercial invoice. The ones that are shipped from the mothersite will indicate where the product is made from. If it's being shipped from another retailer, it may or may not indicate where it is made from. For example when I purchased from one of the American retailers, it did not indicate it's country of origin on the commercial invoice.

Even though I like it all personally, doesn’t feel like there was/is a killer piece this season that would generate enough excitement to sell out. People probably bought the P10s as they were the cheapest pant in a while (and a versatile staple without the A). If they had released a white J1A that would probably have flown out. Maybe J84 will be exclusive to acrnm.com ...

SSENSE now carrying Acronym...

Seems like quantities are way higher this season and will continue to be moving forward with new stockists and virtually everything still in stock. 

 

I'm guessing staple pieces are now spread out while newer designs are still strictly mothersite

It’s been like 2 years?! since I last copped a jacket. Would have bought a J44-sd if it had black zips, bummed I slept on the J72-ds, especially in black, don’t think J84-s is enough of an upgrade for me to replace my J58-s….

 

So what jackets are folks pining for most?

Since you ask, I would straight up trade my J1A for a J32 2.0. It's the first piece I fell in love with in 2016 and the ultimate "rep-iteration" in my eyes.

I regret having slept on the J40L, haven't seen a leather jacket that interesting since. Seeing the Acronym details like the detached entry pockets done up in leather is super cool.

I would love to see a J43a-GT return. My grail.

Both times I tried to buy a J43A-GT the sellers attempted to scam me. at this point i'm not sure it was ever a real release

J43A-GT is a jacket that is cool in concept that was executed badly(collar wise). Best thing to do is just wait if they re-release and improve it.

J40L & GT-J5A for me, nothing from this release piqued any interest at all, sadly.

 

Still really want P30A but have no funds :(
