To all the guys who reached out to me regarding the j89, I think I'd like to at least wear it out in the wild once to make my final judgement on whether I wanna pass it on. It's just that damn LA is still 95 degrees in late September! Crazy! 

It ticks off a decent amount of my boxes, I wanted a knit style noragi to complement my visvim dotera, but the j89 definitely looks more like a svelte cardigan in the few times I've tried it on. Feels like it'll be nice to throw on and wear during the colder months while wfh though. 

Others critiques are valid for the piece. I can feel the shirt sling pull at my back at times. Alpha direct is quite warm when not in motion but if I swing my arm I can definitely feel the air so to speak. It's definitely bound to snag though lol. 

So it might become my wfh staple, but if not I'll reach out to the guys who messaged me wanting it. LA just needs to get down to 60s-70s lol.

I ordered them this morning. I got a size L when I normally do XL in P10-DS and P30A-DS and I have room. So I expect this to fill the gap in between. I’ll post the worst fit pic imaginable soon. 

i have the P36E in Medium and I love them.

as someone who owns P10 variants across CH, DS, S and now E, the p10A-E has to be my favourite

edit: also honourable mention, my P34-E have become my next go-to pant after the P10A-E. i live in the tropics, the breathability trumps DS, super lightweight yet water resistant after (quite a few) washes, colourfast and looks as new as the day i received them.

as for the brother above who says he hates nylon... it's acronym! it's not just "nylon"...

I wholeheartedly agree. Love the "nylon" have the P10 and 36 and both winners.

I bought the P36-E and J78-PX in the recent releases and here's my short, quick impression.

Here's why I think P36 is a nice pair of pants if not better than P37, they are different animal after all, difficut to compare totally different pants.
- Lots of new design elements in this pants, always exciting to see new FUNCTIONAL  elements.
- The P36 fits like a bit similar to P31 when it zipped on, and very similar to P33 when zipped off, pretty versatile in terms of styling, definitely helps to accommodate more shoes choices.
- The spiral pleats at the quad section are actually functional as a vent, which is not simply the "form over function" like pleasts used to be, and boy, I need dat vent.
- The new belt-fasting design solves two issues. 1) quick release, 2) designated bulge waist area that naturally conforms to the back spiral pleats. This has been a pain point for all my huge ass waist DS pants.
- The ankle zip is tilted and position in a way that connects to the flow of lower knee articulation in order to form a sharp structured drape. 
- The encapsulated nylon is less prone to snagging and has the same if not better abrainsion resistance as the Schoeller doublweave , more breathable, thinner, and it's the first time being used on a drapey pants like this.

 

J78-PX fits overall similar to J78-WS if not identical, I wear small in ACRONYM all around and I'd say it's a straight fit that can be layered not only under but also over something.

The Raf green element is a nice touch and adds a bit more depth to a white jacket.

To my eyes it looks more like pearl white/silver in daylight due to the semi-translucent property. 

Very happy with the purchase since I always wanted a white PX jacket and J74-PX hood just doesn't work that well when it's layered under.

Any chance we get pic of P36 worn?

Cheers

I am 180cm 72kg and got a medium. They fit ok, but every time I wear them, I always wonder how a large would fit. I think a large would give me a little bit more flexibility, wearing higher up on the waist with no break / wearing on the hip with a full break at the hem.

The medium that I have could only give me a no break or showing ankle.

I’m 6’3 205lb so I usually do XL for length and leg size. Considering that the only size left was L and the fabric had some give it seems like it’ll be a nice middle ground between my P10-DS and P30A-DS.

I think you got the right size. Because at 175CM I cannot imagine sizing up to a Large but I have snugly fit into a small. I think the real fit test is the knee articulation.

have there been any leaks on what, if anything will get restocked this season?
I'm still holding out hope that since the J1A-GT is still on the site it's gonna get a restock at some point...

I just got a pair of P24-S, anyone remove the pocket flaps?  Seems like they will come off easy and I'm not seeing much utility to them.

i don't know why you received a ton of neg rep for asking an innocent question but to answer your question nobody knows.

all we know so far is there's another drop for j1b, j68-pl, some pants for not just the mothersite but across retailers as well. 

as for restocks of j1a-gt, these just might happen out of the blue as in the past. 

i do remember someone on this thread saying awhile back that chinese production is over, so who knows? maybe no restock at all.

The neg rep is due to the fact that this forum is known at this point. And shitty rep sites will farm any leaks.

Hey guys, I hope you feel good at this time. Got a question for long time Acronym enthusiasts. Right now I'm trying to understand what piece should be my next goal. Already asked for advice from a couple pal's that could be on this forum, but thought that asking a bigger audience would be a plus. Just need guidance in my path of exploration of brand. So here is a list of what I got in my closet. 

Jackets Pants Accessories
J1TS-S P22-S NG7-PS
J58-WS P23TS-S 3A-3TS
J59TS-CH P23A-S  
J61-GT P24A-DS  
J62-PB P25-DS  
J63A-FO P27H-DS  
J68-WS P30A-DS  
J84-S P33-DS  
J16-GT    
CP2-SS    

Slim stuff is definitely not for my body type(5'7 and 85kg with strong torso and hips). Had real trouble with P10, they look like leggings on my legs. And not looking for just Acronym label on item (like H5-AJ). Soooo with all of this, I would love to hear your suggestions about what should I try to get as the next piece. (I would love to have a list with pictures of all Acronym items that were created, so I could figure out the answer on that question by myself lol). Thank you in advance! <3

How about just getting to know the brand and how people style it and then picking up a piece that speaks to you and integrates well into your wardrobe? It's clothes, not a 401k plan.

That's kinda what I'm doing/asking, just tried to give some context of where I am right now in terms of exploration. I'm sorry if you thought that I'm flexing, that never was my intention(or dunno what the deal with 401k plan)
