He might be in denial of this and thus continue to wear M for shoots making his fits look off.

I take this back, it looks like E wears Large on the Evolution jacket, which looks so much better on him than the J1L photoshoot where he's wearing a Medium. Maybe he's realized this?

I dunno why I’m even bothering at this point, but yes some people are between sizes especially in the pants. It’s really that simple. ACR jumps sizes in pants and /or some peoples just have different proportions that don’t align with the fit. Some people unfortunately refuse to admit it and just wear a size too big or too small. But hey if you wanna blow money on shit and look dumb, then thanks for supporting the the next couple seasons of ACR lol

I kinda feel this way with the P30A because height wise it’s perfect on me but it def looks a big baggier on me than the mothersite pics, although P30A photographs and looks odd from all angles so I could be wrong but still

maybe I just need to build some muscle on my legs lol

I think an underadressed point of acr is that it simply is.. finicky when it comes to fit. The difference in body composition that yields  'looks awesome' and 'looks off' is minute.

 

edit: i mean even Ian looks pretty bad in most fits on the mothersite. If you're not E or Lenny ymmv.

quitter's attitude makes everything seem easy doesn't it?

Work smart, not hard. I've seen @brainerd666 take the time to explain why pieces fit the way they do, and why it works, for the person he's explaining it to to just ignore it an continue bricking the item.

Wear what you want, I suppose, but why spend so much on stuff that doesn't fit properly.

Except @fasttimes's endgame was "move on" when you can just ask support to help size for you because acr sizing can be inconsistent on a piece by piece basis. Unless you wear XXXXL I don't think any piece "just won't work" when instead of going up or down a size will do the trick. If you like the design of something don't give up and say "oh well im too tall for acr". If you're an enthusiast, just put in the time and it'll work out. We wouldn't have people scrambling to size before items sell out if E bothered stocking more but what can you do in this post-hype world. 

You can go into everything with a "work smarter" attitude but it doesn't always apply, and you definitely need to put in work eventually. But specifically in fasttimes case it wasn't smart at all, he just said "fuck it and move on".

why don't they just return and trade a size, or can you not do that with ACR

Makes sense that you're one of the people that talk shit about acr without having ever bought anything from mothersite.

To answer your q, you can, that's why you see occasional sizes of some pieces pop back up again.

Can't say for sure, but going off of the P38-GT's already previewed on the mothersite, those featured black zippers, whereas the P38-E had the silver.

Front pocket botton seam on the GT is lower, flat and overlaps with the cargo pocket. The E version is higher and folds under itself.

Looking forward to hear about experiences with it as soon as its out (P38-GT). I'm not sure i would like GT as a material for pants tbh (no stretch, loud af). I also expect them to be priced quite high.

About the J33-E, i finally pulled the trigger for one yesterday (almost two years after its release lol). Went TTS though - i will let you know how it is as soon as i have it in my hands.
