Will a 16 inch macbook pro fit into a 3a-1 ?

 The 16" outright won't fit. A 13" (and maybe the new 14") will fit but the 3A-1 has no padding, which will not only make it uncomfortable but will increase the chances of damaging your laptop. If you use a sleeve like the Bagjack ones it might work in a pinch for smaller sized notebooks but will prevent the bag from wrapping around your body the way it was designed to

Yo does anyone have the link to the website someone made with photos of all of the previous collections? I know it was posted in here about a year ago but it's tough to find

you can also find a lot of stuff by way of the webarchive. a friend of mine has made an archive of many older pieces and their webarchive links but it's not complete, a lot of them vanished from the web.

Has anyone here purchased anything from "Farfetched?" I tried to buy an ACR jacket from them and the payment went through without a hitch, but before they would ship the product, they wanted a photo of my credit card and/or my passport. I told them to "pound sand" and refund my money. I also reported them to my credit card company. I have never dealt with anything like that online!

Iirc Farfetch is a "marketplace" that independent channels can sell through but holy shit, that's awful. I'll be steering clear of it. Hope your creditor refunds you fam, gl dealing with that mess

@NortonCommando961 have had to do this couple of times with other retailers, spoke with one who said they needed proof the card belongs to me and when sending a photo of the card you can cover all but the last four numbers, so said yeah sure why not. sent a photo of the card covering the numbers with my middle finger.

Thanks for the information. I got my money refunded but it will take 10 days to appear in my account.

So I thought I would try your technique (the symbolism of the middle finger is important :-)

However, my credit card is a new one and the numbers are not embossed in a line like the older cards. They are printed on the back of the card in a 4x4 grid. covering all but the last 4 digits would not be a problem. However after giving it some thought, I decided to cancel the order. 

1. I would have to photograph both sides of my card;

2. The photos would show: my full name; the card expiry date; the security code; the type of card allowing anyone to figure the first four digits of my account as well the last four digits of my account.

3. All this would be sent in an unencrypted email to a "distributed" company I had never dealt with before. And a company that i did not have a physical address for!

Hmmmmm! All this risk for an ACR jacket . . . A nice jacket, but it's still just a jacket!  No Thanks!

I cancelled the order!

Tbf I would have, too. That's too much for verification, especially when you can just order straight from the mothersite via PayPal without all that extra hassle (and potential risk)

@NortonCommando961 it's better to err on the side of caution and do what you did and cancel, that's too much detail to be giving up. surprised you're going to farfetch they tend to jack up the prices, even during sales the rrp is sometimes cheaper.

Anybody here buy the J2671 (M45 looking piece)? Can't seem to find anyone who bought the damn thing (except Jack Harlow, if you have his #, my dms are open).

Because or your comments I purchased the J16-GT. You are quite right; it is an excellent design. I like the way the collar fits, the way the hood fits, its light flexible feel, the sleeve closures . . .all in all a great design and execution.

Yeah, it happened to me as well, but everything got cleared with a photo of my ID card and I had to do it only on the first purchase. I wouldn't share my credit card either, but I thought that a photo of my ID wouldn't be that harmful.

You can call the customer service that works quite well... they are a big group owning brands like OFF-white and Palm Angels, not some newcomers...

Given how accessible the retailer stuff is nowadays I'd highly recommend just trying them on in-store if that's an option for you, but I'd stick TTS. The sleeves are monstrously long btw.

@Ogv what @nathan_ said go tts and fully agree the sleeves are comically long.

one other thing if you don't have a retailer close by to visit, order both online and return the one that doesn't fit just make sure the store has free returns.

Would be cool to see the QLQR belts on more models moving forward, seemed like a great feature on the P36.
