Post ACRNM wash musings(lol):

hey guys, wondering if anyone has any insight as to this extra stitch i found on the in-seam of my P10TS-DS (about 3Cm above the hem stitch)

i'm the second owner of my pair, but i bought it from a trusted source, a close mate who bought it off the mothersite. 

can anyone shed some light on the purpose of this stitch? it's on both legs, in the exact same position

EDIT: it just looks so off to me, if anyone has this same issue, and has unpicked it, please let me know how that went, i feel like unpicking it myself.

EDIT 2: the reason i ask is because this is my 5th pair of P10 variants and none of them have ever had this extra stitch (this is my first DS pair)
for extra detail, the pairs i own are P10-S, P10A-S, P10-CH, P10-AE, and this latest one which is a P10TS-DS.

Mine don't have that. This is SS17 right? You're talking about opposite the ankle zip, right?

It looks like that's where the fabric was pinned. i'm guessing they accidentally stitched it together and QC missed it.

 

Weird thing to miss. Good thing you're sure of the pants' provenance.

unpicked it, looks like it never happened

"looks like that's where the fabric was pinned" <-- is this a common tailoring/factory practice? news to me, would be interested in how that works if you happen to know

Generally you pin the individual panels together before sewing to help keep them aligned

so they probably had multiple pairs of stitched pinning along the entire length of the pant? just seems so random to leave a symmetrical pair there, right at the bottom near the hem.

nevertheless, fixed the problem and of course, still great pants

Can't say I do. Some sort of small, hand-sized pouch? My first thought was a sunglasses container reminiscent of the future x bagjack x acr from the past.

personal anecdote as someone whose "ditching" their whole collection. 

my reason is simply because the majority of the fanbase has become mindless clout chasers vs true enthusiasts that care about art and design. 

back in the late 2000s supreme / visvim / acr were all in my wheel house, leaning more weightily on supreme.

Aside from of course the common idea that you age and your tastes change etc, I ditched supreme completely in 2013, the "fanbase" was becoming something i definitely didn't want to associate my self with.

Similar to acr i feel predominantly the audience is just clout-chasing hypebeasts at this point. It's sad because the music is great. but to make a music analogy to this.

I have been a hardcore fan of John Mayer since the early 2000s, now imagine if all of a sudden the majority of mayer fans at a concert only know him based on his recent Instagram persona. You attend a John Mayer concert and 4/5 people around you aren't even listening to the music. they are drunk af. talking loudly taking selfies with the flash on obnoxiously. posting to their stories every 45 secs. that's what acr has felt like for the last couple years to me. 

I have just gone deeper and deeper into visvim over the years as I feel like it has never been subject to anything remotely similar. some of the shoes (fbts) were subject to some of this vain attention for sure, but the facts are that fuccbois aren't going to drop 2.5k on a jacket that they can buy some copy cat version of at a zara. the fanbase feels majority enthusiasts of art.

I think i saw some dude post on the fb group the other month like "So please tell me alll the ACR grails" , then the next day made a WTB post of everyone's responses "WTB 47a 43a j28-k all colors" that type of shit. like tf kinda mentality is that. consumption isn't even for yourself if that's how your brain works. you are dictated by whatever status you can potentially gain, not your soul. trash. 

And when you think about people who listen to music in that very way. well they are the one's hopped up on whatever substance they can find, busy telling everyone on the internet what concert they're at, being obnoxious af ruining everyone else's time. 

points taken and certainly i understand your feelings. but i'll say what i said in an earlier post - the garments are hollow, the people who wear them are what's interesting. are you no longer interesting? were you ever? or are you a serial ship-jumper like with supreme in 2013 and god-who-knows how many other trends before your property had potential to hold water just by investing?

you're using the transitive property when it really doesn't make sense. are your creative and expressive sensibilities changing? perhaps, and that is completely valid. but to change your taste based on the "public reception" (lest we forget despite the production #'s acronym are so low "public" is really a misnomer here) is shallow. i can't tell if you're just making a racket for the sake of the resonance.

of course the members of an enthusiast forum don't want to associate with the layman just because they are holding the same thing. of course such an opinion is bound to strike a chord - in fact it is probably healthy to be reminded from time to time. but woe be the "enthusiast" that soapboxes mainstream rejection as novel. don't cut of your nose to spite your face sir. your rep signals for reservations regarding your loyalty. 

less objective personal conjecture:
anyone to just come out and say they're a die hard john mayer fan is sus in my book. john is the reason i put serious hours into the guitar, john introduced me to great things and remains relevant to my interests. but one thing i would never say outright is "i am a hardcore john mayer fan". is his taste (good and bad) not well known? hodinkee literally keeps him on the masthead 25/8.

your lamentation is like a monk saying "i don't know what all the villagers at the base of our mountain are doing, but if my lifestyle wasn't enough to signal my devotion let me say this brethren: i am a hardcore fan of the buddha". i'm not convinced you weren't a bad apple from the get. 

and yes, i realize the irony that i likened JM to a heady buddha. just trying to illustrate a point.

1. you're attempting to sound really smart, but you are really just having a circular conversation with yourself and some projected persona / idea of who you think I am, which honestly sounds really insecure

2. really not sure what you are trying to say with the john mayer part tbh, was purely using him for the sake of a music analogy. I make a second living in music and mayer was a big part of me getting good enough at music at a young age to do so now. not sure what's sus about being a hardcore fan of mayer, any music, or  literally any thing. 

3. I wrote a completely personal anecdote and stated it as so and you were triggered enough by it to write a complete assessment based on assumptions. i mean this in the most polite and objective way but, that's honestly a super embarrassing level of grade A entitlement, like you are a shining exemplary of what i would like to disassociate with tbh. though you may not be posting WTB: EVERYONE ELSE'S grails. you sound like a underleveled person in many other ways / your view of self importance is quite akin to those other "laymans" as you refer. 

4. for someone who references the buddha, you don't seem to know much about him as you reek of self centricity, just my opinion

mmmmm not feeling it. obnoxious as I've found many of erictheninja's posts to be in the past, the one you quoted to was a sincere contribution to a discussion about people growing out of Acronym. Your whole post boils down to "you have negative rep, and you are just an earlier stage clout chaser lamenting other clout chasers," except you used 300 needlessly frilly words to say it. When someone's engaging with the discussion honestly like that, it's not a good look to shit on them for it, whether or not you agree with what they're saying. where's your contribution to that topic? or do you just take potshots at people with low rep?

@nodre

i'm entitled to an opinion like everyone else on here, and i stand by everything i said.. i've played worse odds than the probability of making a relatively accurate assumption based on an honest anecdote.

i agree that this has devolved, and you're right i went off and it wasn't warranted. it was indulgent.

sincere apologies Eric, good luck on whatever wave you ride next ~


my apologies to you kings who wasted your time reading my post

 man i don't think any one was offended by your post bro, you didn't "go off", i honestly could barely understand wth you were trying to say for the majority of it because of all the superfluous fake woke bs you weaved in lol. ( my bad if you are english second language tho, respect for learning / knowing multiple languages if so)

lol. ya bro i'm the wave rider. some light hearted assumptions to return the favor. you joined literally the week the acronym prestos release and you've posted multiple times complaining about wrinkled spec sheets.

ps. you made “relatively accurate assumptions based on my post”. Lol you called me a serial ship jumper but my post literally is about wearing the same two brands for over 10 years lol.. ya I got no loyalty man .. (Again if this is an ESL reading comprehension thing then all good) Other wise yeah pretty sure you are in a convo with no one else but yourself. 

prolly should stop listening to that cryptic old mf too. Like i googled mans and one of the first results was how he doesn’t think dogs are cute. Nuff said

how people are +repping this low effort "stfu" post? Not the first time it's happened here with people just low-effort name-call or attack the character of those they don't agree with using "memes". If he's wrong, tell him why. If you don't want to, you don't have to. But how does "stfu" help at all?
