German brand Acronym has achieved a task few other brands have set out to do and do well. Their ability to blend form and function has become their trademark characteristic as they combine some of the world’s most innovative technical fabrics into clean and fashionable apparel. Their latest spring release features the SP3-E Raid BDU Short Pant. Constructed of a special treated EPIC® Amphibious Cotton, the shorts provide you with a garment that is windproof, water repellent and breathable. The hydrophobic fibers also maintain that soft cotton feel without any unnatural textures. With nine pockets, these shorts provide ample storage for any thing you need to carry around. Despite the high price tag of$425 USD, we imagine the shorts live up every bit to its billing. Available now at The Glade.
