One crackhead homeless with a DIY jacket made out of trashbags and ready to stab you 

Fortunately, it doesn't come in my size!

Almost as trash as the J1 with the Kraft Single stapled to the front

I made a detailed review of the J111TS-CH which I think is such a great jacket. This is my second Acronym youtube video after the J1A Comparison that I posted here a while back. 

There's a quite deep look at TEC SYS in this review and I go into using military modulars as well as Acronym ones like the 3A-MZ5s. 

One really cool unadvertised thing about this jacket is that the hand pocket lining is sewn in such a way that it basically provides two extra pockets within the lining on each side. 

It looks like nerd jacket. E-J4TS is much better than this. Really disappointed.

I have absolutely no idea what any of that means

Agreed. I bought one! I never wear it. It looks like a nerd jacket!

True, you can put all sorts of stuff in the pockets, but it distorts the jacket and makes it look even worse; I would rather use a messenger bag.

I think using the TEC SYS grid is fine as long as you don't intend to zip the jacket up, which I personally never do

TLDR; SSENSE Ships Fake Acronym.

On 11 February 2024, I purchased a pair of Black P30AL-DS pants in XS from SSENSE, which was subsequently delivered to me on 19 February 2024.

However upon receiving the pants, I realised they were clearly fake. 

1. The entire design of the pants is incorrect - wrong pockets, wrong length, wrong cut...
2. The texture feels nothing like the DS material on my other Acronym pants
3. The packaging is completely wrong
4. The size tag inside didn't even have a XS option on the label.. They sent me the pants in size S
 
I've attached the relevant photos (which I had also sent to SSENSE) and video of the packaging comparing the pants with another P47 that I had received to show how different they are.
 
But when I contacted SSENSE about the issue of them sending me a fake item, I received this response:

'My name is Jessica; I am a Product Specialist here at SSENSE.

 I'm sorry to hear that you received the wrong size in your recent order, and I understand that the presentation of the item you've received has raised some concerns regarding its authenticity. I am happy to address these concerns!
 First, I would like to mention that it is nearly impossible that an inauthentic item would have entered our inventory at this time, as our warehouse is highly surveilled at all times. However, I understand that you have some concerns regarding the quality of this 241368M18800100 ACRONYM® Black P30AL-DS Cargo Pants Upon checking, this unit is from the 2024 Spring/Summer collection, supplier code: P30AL-DS.
 I having had the chance to examine a unit of this style in person, I can confirm that all of the production specifics of your unit match manufacturing. I completely understand that online purchases always come with a reasonable degree of skepticism. We want to make sure that you purchased the right item - I'd like to reassure you that your item is 100% authentic. 
 
In order to resolve this issue, please return the wrong item to us using the enclosed return label. Once we receive the item, we will process a refund for the purchase price of the item. To receive the correct item, we kindly ask that you place a new order on our website. I apologize, we are not able to offer direct exchanges at the moment.'

1. I think there's a chance that their entire stock of P30AL-DS is fake, if the product specialist ''
had the chance to examine a unit of this style in person, I can confirm that all of the production specifics of your unit match manufacturing'
2. Either that, or SSENSE is blatantly selling fake pants to their customers.

I've reached out to Acronym on this, hopefully they're able to help sort this out with SSENSE... and frankly, SSENSE simply issuing a refund is just disappointing at this stage.

obviously fake as you've correctly pointed out, and that bag is literally what taobao reps (for any brand) come in

This is a well-known scam: you order an item, ask for a return due to the wrong size or whatever reason, and then send them one you bought on Taobao. SSENSE simply can't legit check every item due to the sheer volume of shipping and returns. Chinese shops have started combating this by putting unique stickers on washing tags that are very hard to remove. SSENSE is not selling fake items on purpose, that's for sure.

May you please highlight differences between real and fake DS fabric? I'm on the fence with a P41 I recently bought and being it my first DS I don't have anything to compare to.
