If you like the design of something don't give up and say "oh well im too broke for acr".

I can afford to buy a new Toyota Tacoma pickup but I don't buy it because I don't need it. I don't buy new ACR because I don't need it either. If I like a design at the right price I'll buy it. I've bought the CP4 and I'll happily wait for the opportunity to buy a jacket too.

"Can't afford price hikes? You're a broke hater!" I've laid out all the reasons why I've chosen not to buy new releases before and being poor isn't one of them. Keep trying though.

I guess I should clarify that because I'm in California, jackets aren't so high on my priority list but I'm still passively seeking the right jacket because I'm a fan of the design and functionality. It's also why I'm not so fond of GT as a material. 

ACR is a niche and shares budgets with my photography, mid-fi audio, firearm, airsoft, and cycling hobbies like everyone else. A $2000 jacket is hard to justify over a new headphone, IEM, and lens combined. Especially in Cali.

I understand when you guys try to pin me, be it that I don't own "real ACR" or that I'm too broke because I'm known for criticising ACR's pricing and stocking behavior post-ACG. I know you guys have invested a lot into your hobby thus feel attacked when I say some things, but realize that I'm not directing these criticisms at you personally. I've laid out everything I believe in a few months back so I know better now to not to repeat myself. 

That said, I'm still keeping tabs on the ACR scene and asking questions to learn. If I happen to say a few things along the way that don't make you feel good about your purchases, I apologize. In cases when I'm wrong, I'll happily admit it because it means I've learned something.

Maybe there'll come a day when I come to terms with ACR as a hype brand and not a functional one. I hope I'm wrong.

I thought the reason everyone downvotes orientalQ is because he resells out the ass 

I'm tryna figure out what that material is on the green p38s. Reminds me of the MP fabric almost. maybe it's just the photo quality making it look like that

Anyone know if the j29 ws is insulated / lined or just a shell?

Some comments about J33-E as i just got it in my hands. I know this is SS2019 but as it may be still relevant as it is still in stock.

I went true to size (Size M, 180cm - 77kg) and really love the silhouette. Yes, it is wide, but i wouldn't say it looks too big. I personally would not recommend to size down tbh but it may depend on overall build. For me, the fit matches the pics from Umit on the mothersite and i wouldnt like if it would look like the one from Ian. Probably a good addition to the recent sizing discussion!

Material is super nice as well, though it seems to attract hairs/dust a bit easily and of course its not waterproof like gore-tex but therefore a lot more "comfortable".

Overall happy with my purchase and i can imagine wearing this for many years because i think its minimal enough to be super versatile.

In contrast, the LA8-DS feels boxier/roomier, which makes sense when you compare its measurements to the LA6A/B. I'm 178 cm, 70 kg, wearing Size M.

this was evident in the product images, although i wonder why both were labelled as profile fit

LA8-DS is definitely my favourite piece of the first drop. Comparing it to the LA6A-DS and my old LA3-DS the small things set it apart. Thicker DS, 2 way zipper instead of buttons and the snaps on the cuffs all add up to something greater than the sum of their parts. It just feels good to wear. Super simple and versatile too. New uniform piece, I love it.

It's the shirt equivalent of P30A-DS for me. When I'm not wearing it, I want to be wearing it. If you slept on it you fucked up.

that's how i feel about the LA6A
LA3 is y favourite shirt, the LA6A takes the buttons, and adds the holster zips, perfect. and the cut feels great worn
the LA8 looks great too, but i favour a slimmer fit for shirts

That's exactly why I sized the LA8 down - got the LA8 in S, which is exactly the same fit as my LA6 in M. The only difference is that the LA8 is half an inch longer and has a bit more structure due to the thicker material. Super happy with it, as I prefer the fitted shirt look to the baggy overshirt look.

I waited so long for these shirts in ds material. LA8 and LA6 are two different styles of shirt and I am happy they made two different fits. Personally I wouldn’t size down on the LA8, just get the LA6 if u want a slim fit shirt. 
Now can we have some short sleeves for a true summer acr fit :ph34r:

Uniqol shortsleeves with airism fabric probably a better value choice in my opinion. A $400+ shirt maybe not a good choice for most people.

I had the same zip quality issue as moneytalks had with my la6 

Anyone else has the same?

this isnt a zip quality issue lol. the creases are due to the zips being curved and can't be avoided.  its like seeing folds on your pants and saying there is a quality issue with the flyzip.

Got my P34-DS in XL in and instantly love them. They fall perfectly for my height and body type - big dudes in the house.
