revive

As someone who grew up working at Pogo, it is so wild and wack that Revive carries Acr, I still cannot get my head around it in the slightest

the new prices of j68-pl and p31a-ds are no doubt lovely, super nice pack either for new bee or any old man need back to minimal.

also these cashmere accessories made in japan reminds me of those days i was shocked too but the price would be around the half of newly issued version.

> Made In China

Did they move production to China now? Or is it just the J68? (and possibly the P31, explaining the price)

Pretty much everything has been made in China for the past 1.5 years except for a few random pieces here and there. Quality is pretty much the same though, just allows for more stock for everyone.

Hopefully prices stay decent like this drop.

Also, my J68-PL Multi shipped from mothersite already lmao

Possible, previous p31 non a were still made in Europe and 719 euro vs 736 this drop

FW1920 was mostly (or maybe even exclusively) made in Europe (at least stuff I own). Can't say anything about SS20

True, but I'm personally not aware of any other made in China items in those seasons. Maybe other folks can add to the list...

Can anyone review white goretex?

Picked up the white J47 back when it dropped and have been giving it regular wear ever since.  The white can and does pick up stains overtime that don't come out with regular washing.  Random black scuffs from touching things that I don't remember, ink from a grocery bag that I held to close in the rain, etc..  It's especially bad at the cuffs.  Basically if it doesn't get dirty then you probably haven't been wearing it lol.  That being said, as long as you don't look too close, the white still looks crisp and nice.

Overall it's a cool looking fabric that you can wear on rainy days, but you gotta be constantly vigilant so as not to ruin it.  Big flex but only sorta practical.

-S RAF always looks slightly different season to season
hard to show you a comparison as well since stotz fades but i'd say the DS one is a little brighter if that makes sense.
still works great overall with any other RAF accents on bags sneakers / mods. 
The -PL RAF is more or less the same as DS colourwise
a detail to note is that the RAF DS is the same DS on the P30A-DS i have that is also MIC, they are slightly thinner than regular DS, but as anyone who has a p30a will tell you, they hold up just as well

One of the first times I wore my white GT out, a girl gave me a hug and got make up on the collar that I've never been able to get out. And yeah, it's pretty much impossible to keep it clean for long if you actually want to wear it. As good as it looks, I'd never buy it again personally.

How warm do you suppose the J68-PL is going to be? Doesn't give the density but let's assume it's the same as the J58-WS, what temperatures can one get away with with a t-shirt underneath? (obviously with the "warmth is subjective" caveats, yada yada)

they are similar in warmth and i would wear either only in anything below 15ºC

@moneytalks you sized down on p31A?

I wouldn't , just go with your regular size. I had a size M P31 (my usual size, ~33 waist) and it's valid.

Check Notre styling. Some kind of cropped p31a+weird "RAF"

That's actually around where they sit if you hike them up, a nice sag will have your ankles feeling safe. One of the reason why I sold them tbh, I don't mind wearing them at or below the hips, and that's what I usually do, but didn't like how my ankles would show like this dude lol

also according to notre this dude is 185cm and wearing a size S. 

 

Still it seems to me that all of ACR's pants that are not supposed to be cropped could benefit from 3cm extra in the leg.
