That J36 looks like somebody stapled a rolled up trash bag to the front of an otherwise excellent jacket

the only thing i'm looking forward to are the j36 and p17... ever since wide cut jackets started coming out everything's felt... off.

Incredibly disappointing. All the classics feel bastardized in the name of constant innovation and evolution. It'd be fine if they actually were but this is devolving. Same with the J28-GT's wack neck collar, storm hat, and rain apron.

Can't get the OG pieces ever again seems like.

my hot take is that the newer j28 is actually great, I just switch out the hat-hood for a regular hood from a different shell.

the pattern is one of the least restrictive of any shells they've made (that's not -W and doesn't look like a garbage bag) because it's basically a single piece of fabric from back to the front of the chest

I've also actually found use for the new storm collar where it's sometimes faster to just zip up the main front and snap the collar closed instead of fiddling with the neck zipper

Neck snap on the OG quicker and much less cumbersome imo the midsection snap was a nice addition 

New does give you the sensation of being lightly choked if you’re into that tho

Dang, the dislike of the designs this season seems pretty unanimous. However, I do like the art direction + music on the MS with the countdown to the new items. Gives me old ACR vibes in a good way. 

Looking at where the brand is headed, my hope of getting some 'silent killer' WS jacket like a J47 / J32 is a pipe dream now. Can we at least get some RAF or Grey P10DS instead of a skirt?

I like the skirt idea. Reminds me of the poncho from a couple years back, cp-whatever the fuck. Kind of silly but also kind of useful.
 

I’d rather they went more in this direction than fugly graphic tees/hoodies and mid aughts video game npc’s jackets. Also- enough with the nostalgia for rave gear ffs. It really ain’t it. The moment is gone.

We finally get another 3D collar and it’s in fucking WS. Wilted ass shit looking collar. Enough of this M/E/DS/GTblahblah bullshit. Give us back our Stotz you fucking cowards.

I don't mind the edgelord design interventions as long as they are totally optional - Seems like the spiky tape is completely removable so not a big deal even if it's a bit cringe.

Unlike the mandatory inclusion of tattered hi-vis panels with knockoff designers republic graphics on the otherwise cool J110TS-GT from the last collection, insane that those bits can't be removed without scissors.
