Question to any P25 owners: What size did you guys end up getting?

5’6” here, went with size S (SS17 gen) and I’ve only had slight issues with material catching when walking around the house, but that’s cause I drag my feet lol. when walking outside, even with lowtops like Vans there’s still quite a bit of distance from the outseam to the ground so unless you have some awkward way of walking, material catching shouldn’t be a big issue. also sometimes i’ll tuck in my tanktop or shirt and tighten the drawcords so it sits more above my waist/shows more ankle ;)

Yeah, I'm 5'10" myself, and I normally wear a small for the P22/P27/P30. I had purchased them smaller than normal because I wanted to wear the pants at the hip, and still have a crop that extended a bit further past the ankle, so I'm kinda looking for the same result with the P25. Though I certainly don't mind pulling them up a bit (At first I used to wear my Size M P30 right on top of my belly button.)

lol it is international day of democracy today after all

Lotteries are "as democratic as possible" by the way. Didn't win? Thanks for paying your hype tax. Aren't you happy the rich guy who would have bid 3k got the jacket for 20 bucks instead? But hey you donated 20 bucks (not tax deductible btw) to poor people (and fees for hbx, probably).

Now buy my latest collection with 30% price hikes ;)

Is there any expectation that the J89-AD will end up on any of the stockist sites anytime soon?

What size do you need? I got the last XL on the way and if it doesn't work I'll pass it on to you at cost. I'm normally L-XL anyway but measurements seem to indicate it fits profile.

Thanks but I'm after an S or an M.

This was a real nice drop with some great pieces. Went for the 89 myself and hope sizing works out

In recent memory (past few years) items have either dropped online only, or online + stockist simultaneously. you might have to start watching grailed...

Is it me or do the detached pockets on the J83 look like goretex pro, while the rest of the jacket is windstopper?

What exactly is that product and what is it intended for ? I’ve been following this charade as close as I can and I just have no clue what this is all about lol

@msoldano think its this. find it odd that someone bid 416 down from a price of 37173 and knew it would be accepted and the other was sold for exactly the same price. almost as if they didn't really want anyone to have them.

sadly its all a publicity stunt, a bit of marketing to sell some chunky, loud laptops with a airshock packing pouch masquerading as a case

maybe there was a specific price decipherable from clues, and the first to bid it gets it?

Possible that the seller simply counter offered for 416 on both instances.

Thank you bro! Yeah I've seen that page. So it's just a regular laptop with some air pouch branding? Very interesting

I’m 5‘9 and rocking p23 p30 and p25 all in size m. If you don’t need full length of it i better suggest checking size s.

At this pic I take p25 size m with a pair of boot and it covers quite a bit.

 

Im 5'9 too and have had P30 CH in Small, and while the length did not bother me, I found my knee getting caught in the articulating parts of pant leg. I ultimately traded for a Medium which I greatly prefer.

what hts code was used for the j89?

If you classify it as shirt made from man-made materials (polyester), 6205.90.4030 at 2.8% seems like a good candidate.

I just ate the j89 cost at 52.40. guess I could've saved $20-30 if I tried to find a lower code but it was $1057 anyway so what's the difference.

30% is pretty intense though, I'd put in the effort to bring that down.

Harder to navigate around synthetic jackets. I've had to pay 27.7% every time.

If we're doing the release-prep posts now might as well get this one out of the way. US duties cheat codes.

If you order a jacket valuing over $800 from Acronym and you live in the USA, you'll be paying painfully high duties.
  
HOW TO LOWER YOUR DUTIES IF YOU LIVE IN THE USA

UPS Brokerage accounting department 866-493-7140
Give them your tracking number and tell them that you have a package due to arrive and it isn't classified as specifically as it should be. And as a result of its vague classification, the duties are set way too high. This is actually true.
They might be able to change the classification right then and there, but sometimes they will tell you that you need to speak to the agent in charge of your package and they will give you the number for that office. If they don't just call the Dallas office. They usually have their shit together there.
UPS Shipping and logistics Dallas office 972-304-6978
If you give them your tracking number they should direct you to an agent in charge of your package. Explain to them your situation. They will probably give you a classification that Acronym specified (6203.33.xxxx) which has a duty rate of 27% which is insanely high. Tell them that the classification is not necessarily incorrect, but it's just not specific enough. Give your agent the following classification numbers:
6201.99.8010 - for Cotton (Stotz)
6201.99.8020 - for Wool (LP - that would be a pleasant surprise)
6201.99.8030 - for synthetics (SS, WS or GT)
This changes your rate to something like 4% and saves you hundreds of dollars.

Once your agent confirms the rate change...
UPS bill pay - 803-502-2525. Call these people and pay your lowered duties.

Much thanks again to CARLOOA for tracking down those classification numbers.

@Kamikaze will this still work?
