now I'm just speculating..

you two were huge fans of the label until the prices went up and couldn't or "didn't want" to afford the jawnz anymore.  You feel the need to express your hatred of the brand that left you hanging in a forum full of "die hards".  Fuck outta here with that lame shit lol. quit crying and get your paper up.  let go of that hate brehs, trust me.. you'll be happier.

Yeah sorry I choose to spend my money by thinking... it's strange you use the word hate... I never said I hate acronym. Is negativity or criticism considered hate or are you just using another colloquial version of the term? If you told your mother to stop doing drugs do you hate her? Or love her?

If a jacket can be bought for 20$ retail then a $2000 jacket is the equivalent of a $2,000,000 car. Not so much a Porsche 993. I'm a photographer and spend a fair amount in that hobby, but I'm happy to drop $3000 on a Sony A7RIII because I know I'm paying for a competitive and cost-functional price. I know that Sony probably isn't making more than $500 on the price I paid because their competitors would simply undercut them. Can't say the same for a J1A-GT. 

Don't get me wrong. I own ACR myself. Love his designs. I just refuse to blindly accept the prices for what they are and will continue to be.

Lol You’re dumb, No one is trying to compete with ACR because there’s really no equivalent IMO.  For you to insinuate that people in this forum are “blindly” spending their money is ignorant AF. You’re prolle one of those people who walks around thinking you’re better than everyone because of your “smart and thoughtful decisions” lol.  I shouldn’t have used hate, I should’ve used bitchassness

For one, I'm not saying YOU have to stop buying Acronym. I am simply pointing out reasons why others (and believe me I am not alone here) would choose not to buy the products because of the blatant price gouging and profiteering. Yes, to you there is no equivalent to Acronym. But to others, there are a LOT of people who cross shop between ACR and Outlier, enfin leve, SISP, Riot Division, and many other ACR derivatives (including replicas). It's not a zero sum game and our opinions are not mutually exclusive. I don't mind the negative reps, but it's not like I'm wildly wrong. It's probable that the people who don't have as much brand loyalty to ACR wouldn't browse this forum. I'm a design enthusiast and a customer, but maybe the prices are reason for me to reconsider the latter.

"Not buying Acronym is more Acronym than Acronym." 

Stop with the character attacks. Calling me "dumb" does what exactly? I get it. You just got rep points for roasting a cocky lambo Designer. Cool. But that's because he brought up why his opinion should be valued over others. Did I do that? I have not insulted or insinuated anything about you, yet you continue to insult me. Please extend that courtesy back for the sake of argument.

Cross-shopping the listed brands (+ including replicas, really?) does not make them equivalent, period. A self-proclaimed 'design enthusiast' should be able to understand the differences.

Mine is like that but even more extreme. It has that strange wavy pattern throughout the entire jacket. Looks terrible. I haven't had a chance to try ironing it out, because otherwise it's basically unwearably ugly.

lol, ok breh.

ACR make it's own market.. to put it plainly, E can charge whatever the fuck he wants for his clothes.  You, as the consumer, has the right to not buy his shit.  This aint n95 face masks breh.  This is not a regulated security that you buy on NYSE.

"breh", I started my charade not because i can't afford new prices (lol), but because it might hurt the brand (because i care (cared)). I was trying to look from non-hardcore user perspective, how many times i need to repeat that? I already said that "E" while "charging whatever the fuck he wants for his clothes" is not selling his clothes anymore. When hype dies, it will be way worse. ACR made it's own market, but that might be crumbling very soon.

Orientalq, stop trying. People here are like hyenas on it's own territory. They don't care what opinion you have, they live on Errolsons precum and if you have different opinion, they will attack you even if you made legit point.

Where did I say they were equivalents? You're misconstruing my argument. "There is no equivalent to ACR" does not mean Errolson can raise prices arbitrarily, otherwise a J1A-GT would be $5000 by now. The reason I'm sensitive to ACR's price is that at some point the added functionality and brand value per dollar diminishes, therefore cross shopping is an option for the majority of consumers. In fact we've seen that with ACG jackets entering the GT jacket space, as it has become a household name on every "techwear" forum, which used to be a niche market for ACR. "Design enthusiast" or not, price matters too.

Which is why I didn't buy anything for 2020... and I'm on a forum complaining about it because I want to. I'm not advocating for Errolson to be audited or regulated. I sense a lot of antagonism here... why can't we just disagree.

...I mean, you get how the english language works right? The implication is that you and/or others believe that there is enough equivalency amongst those brands to bother cross-shopping. I give zero fucks about your personal shopping habits (or justification), and am simply pointing out the false posit.

Okay. Under the assumption that the cross-shopping of two goods makes them equivalents, I'll stand by my point that at a cost-to-value basis there is a point at which the other brands are in that sense equivalent to Acronym. It seemed to me you were referring to Acronym as an equivalent-less brand based on design/functionality alone, excluding price, but if we're counting price it should be a no-brainer. Cost-to-value wise an enfin-leve DS pant exceeds that of a P10, so explain to me how Acronym has no equivalents in that regard.

Acronym has never been about cost-to-value. If you want cost-to-value, go shop at Ross

And of course enfin-leve's DS pants are going to be seen as better "cost-to-value wise" because a lot of their business is from taking Acronym designs to sell at a lower price point. Have fun with your Great Value™ Acroynm.

I'm glad you agree... Guess what, a lot of people do shop at ross. And love their Great Value™ Acronym. 

Everyone has their price points. I'm pointing out that as Errolson raises prices, enfin leve's sales team get wetter in their pants.

Sorry, but I've stated nothing to that effect.

Cherry-picking single metrics cannot, on any-basis, be reasoning for proving / disproving equivalency. Again, as a 'design enthusiast' you should know that the sum constitutes many parts - some of which are intangible. The fact that you claim that, and are ok lumping in rip-offs and replicas in the same brand grouping is pretty astounding.

I did NOT say that all of those brands were as good as the original. Cross-shopping does not equate to a conclusion of equality. For instance, I can cross shop a Mercedes S-Class and a Genesis G70, because I can use the extra money saved over from buying the Genesis to other avenues that are more productive for me. The same goes for ACR. People who cross shop ACR and enfin leve can save hundreds of dollars which could be used for other parts of their fit.

I don't work for enfin leve.

1) "Cross-shopping the listed brands (+ including replicas, really?) does not make them equivalent" -> Cross shopping =/= equivalency.

2) "The implication is that you and/or others believe that there is enough equivalency amongst those brands to bother cross-shopping." -> Cross-shopping = enough equivalency.

Please explain to me what you mean by equivalency, because in one post you're saying that cross-shopping does not equate to equivalency and in the other, you're accusing me of equating Acronym with other brands because they can be cross-shopped.

I'm sure they do. But people who shop at Ross don't come onto fashion forums to bitch about clothes they can't afford (lol or maybe they do...?)

You implied that ppl are cross-shopping those brands, and they are therefore equivalent. It doesn't, and they aren't. Not sure how much simpler I can make that.

You're now contradicting your earlier post (see below) and are feigning confusion. It's ok, the world will keep spinning.

Am I? I said on a cost-to-value, didn't I? 

Cross-shopping does not equate to a conclusion of equality as in a Prius does not beat Ferrari as a better car but it does lose to it on a per-cost basis. I was addressing flipflop's insinuation that I consider enfin to be "as good" as the original, which it isn't. It's more cost-efficient, but not better. 

Am I the confused one here? We are talking about price, after all. To take price out of consideration and accuse me of equating ACR with other brands outright is disingenuous and misleading. Context, please.
