Well yeah that's exactly what ACG is now - Acronym light with Nike branding. I dont see that as a problem though hahaha
I fee like this season is one of Isaora's best overall, winter 2013 was really good too. The only thing I don't really like from this season is the pants. The cut of the cargos is great but 100% poly is weak esp with the hand feel and look it has. Too much sheen, too much track pants, not enough of a regular pant look if any of that makes sense, and the chinos are boring but the cut looks good (could be looser up top but I haven't actually handled them). I also wish the merino stuff was thicker but the cut of all of it and price is good.

Yea tru its definitely not a problem, although old acg was pretty special and maybe better than the current situation. its a great partnership and I look forward to more, I really like the trench from this year. I just feel like if I'm gonna spend about 500 on a nike jacket I might as well spend some more hundreds and get the real thing from acr.

 

I agree on the pants, don't they do off season drops often? I remember one in the last year or so with some better looking pants. Thinking about some merino tees for myself, but been debating between getting outlier even though they are almost double price, heard good things.

Outlier are thicker but The cut of the Isaora ones are better. If Outlier still have any of the dolman sleeve merinos then grab one of those, I love mine.

Well, It's dark and rainy and I just put it over a T and they are taken with an iPhone on a timer with a child running around me , but nevertheless.....

Also looking back at the ACG stuff, can't decide between wovens and cargos and black or navy. I was supposed to be getting a pair of Acrnm P10-ds for $450 but my friend got a better offer and (rightfully) took it. It's a shame, they're the best version yet. I feel like the wovens are a pretty good substitute, but the cargo's are pretty rad with the slim pockets and back zip. I'd obv get both if I could afford it right now but maybe (hopefully?) these will still be around for a few months.

Thnks for posting. How is the quality of the shirling? Is I Yzerman. Real? Guessing it's on the thinner side. I'm looking for a bomber but I don't want ie that screams techy, was thinking of the private white vc...

@irbe It's real shearling, for some reason I was expecting faux-shearling. It's soft but has a pretty low pile. It's got a zip on the top/back and snaps on the bottom so the collar is removable.

speaking of Shearling, i just fell in love:

Anyone know where to cop a similar jacket like this? I almost pulled the trigger when it was 30% off on Black Friday but 1000 Euros is still a lot for a bomber.

Preview of new ACG stuff. Pretty pricey, middle of the road techwear if Acronym is out of your budget. Prices have creeped into Veilance territory.

I'm looking for Canada Goose (or similar) down bomber jacket for my wife for Christmas. Any ideas on best places to buy this or alternate brands to consider. Trying to optimize on warmth.

I've only been sort of paying attention to Isaora for the past few years, but I think you're right. Everything seems a bit sleeker, a bit less openly technical. You're spot on about the bonded sweatpants, and I think the field pants look a little sloppy.

On the more positive side, I picked up a pair of sweatpants on sale earlier this year, and they're absolutely perfect. A reasonable drop crotch (noticeable, but not knee length), slim legs, and dope fabric (some sort of japanese woven that I don't really remember the details of). They're also lined in a cotton mesh, which is a really nice detail. Also, just received the neo zip up, and it's excellent. Fabric feels awesome, nice details like a small pocket on the left forearm, and most importantly, a badass, very structured fit. Totally recommend.

Lots of companies make quarter-zip baselayers hat essentially act as a turtleneck when zipped up, if that's any help.

Hey guys, I ordered an Isaora Expedition Parka in black/black size XS with 25% off Black Friday discount and it didn't work out. I'm going to send it back in a few days unless someone wants it for what I paid ($650 + fees/shipping). Let me know.

Looks like Isaora is getting rid of their wetworker line of minimalist jackets. They're going to be on sale soon. They are keeping the M65 though.
