“Always bring an architect to a knifefight.” is a quote from author William Gibson printed in tiny type on the back of German fashion brand Acronym’s T-13 T-Shirt, part of Acronym‘s geometric 2012 Fall/Winter Collection. The quote sets the tone for a collection that also includes this futuristic GT-J29 Blazer hybrid where function meets form in a sartorial form factor; waterproof, windproof, with breathable technical tailoring. “Superfunktionalized”. Example, the exterior surface is soft to the touch and a slick interior backer glides over inner layers smoothly and silently thanks to the reduced audio signature of hunting specific Gore-Tex® microfiber fabric. According to Acronym they pioneered the technical blazer more than seven years ago with their J11, now with a completely re-architected shoulder and torso the GT-J29 achieves the best fit yet.
