Acronym.

Recommended Posts

can anyone show some detail of the p38-E ankle zipped with and without shoes on? curious about just how narrow / compression like the ankle gaitors get and how thin they are, it looks like they used different material on the DS version.. is it the same as on the GT? Look like they could be very different

I live UK and got stung £400 for the P38-GT drop. I returned to Acronym, filled out the form to my countries tax offices. Still haven’t heard anything.

I know this is US and not UK, but when I asked UPS it said it would take them about a year to refund duties...

IIRC I double paid my duties once and I THINK it took like 3-6 months to get refunded. It came to me in a check when I had basically forgotten about it and figured I’d never get it back.

I’m shuddering with the memory of my import tax fiasco because I moved on from it. In my case UPS didn’t want to know and after hours of waiting on phone lines, I managed to get an invoice out of them for the import tax. Spoke to Acronym who also said I have to speak to my countries tax office. I filled out the form to reclaim tax on refunded items, which I found incredibly hard to fill out. Photocopied all the relevant paper work and posted it off.

Hopefully SUFU is still going to be there to save Acronym drop days.

think stores should get their models shitfaced before taking photographs, would make for some interesting shots and fits ... someone call the creative director at end and make the suggestion.

some cool tees in there, but some I definitely wouldn't wear lol

For those interested, my first experiences with P38-GT: 
Walked in decent rain for 15 min. Did not get wet obviously, but remarkable was that the stretchy part, because of the movement, repelled water even more. Drops barely had the chance to stay in place.
Then this moring I biked through the city in it, in 11°C but sunny, for 20 min, fast. Don't feel like I got more or less sweaty in it than I would in cotton cargo's. Opening the side zips and bottom zips a bit really helps with the airflow. 
The movement and knee and butt articulation and stretchyness is great for biking, I did not feel restricted in my movement in any way. And the inside of the parts where friction with your skin occurs is very soft (just as soft as the inside of DS). 
Have nice day, cheers.

I might just be spoiled by how good the 32 cargos are… but am I the only one that’s unimpressed with how the 38-DS cargos just shoot stuff at and over your kneecaps? I put my AirPods Pro case in there and it was trying to dig into the cartilage on the top my patella ffs. Same with other hard case items. The cargos just feel like a place to hold your hat or napkins or some shit lol. They do look sickies tho so whatever

Do you get the same issue with P24A pockets? They look positioned further back, but the opposite issue would be sitting on your pocket contents if they fall to the back.

 The 24a’s ride higher up on the leg than the 38-DS. Same style of pocket tho, and feel great. The 16A/32 pockets tho are the best cargo pockets on any cargo centric pant hands down. The contents shift back when standing and forward slightly when sitting. The load is always carried in an appropriately ergonomic/anatomically forward manner.

Finally got J98-SS today. Love the loose fit and the Olive is bit darker than the site photo. More close to the site video shown color.

any guesses as to what the function of that heel piece is, if any? i’d really like for it to serve a purpose beyond just design feature. also would be great if it was a recycled plastic.

That looks like a structural reinforcement part that works with the slide-shape back heel to allow your feet to slip in easier, which matches the consistant idea with all other acr collab shoes, the easy entry and take off.
