Cult techwear label ACRONYM has dropped a host of new outerwear items consisting of GORE-TEX-fabricated jackets and capes and new high-density Gabardine cotton pieces.

Standout pieces from the Errolson Hugh-designed drop includes the 2L GORE-TEX Infinium Windstopper Cape, an interchangeable outerwear piece that can be worn in two modes for different levels of weather protection. A stand-out feature of the cape is its friction-fit “Storm Hood,” a piece of all-conditions protection that relies on kinetic friction to stay put — eliminating any need for draw cords or locks.

The drop also features pieces such as an oversized, workwear-inspired GORE-TEX jacket and a new take on the ACRONYM Interopsæ jacket called the J36-S. Dropping in two colorways, the J36-S is equipped with functional hardware such as Fidlock magnetic dock point, which allows the jacket to seemingly automatically close without doing up the main zip. Made from high-density Gabardine cotton, the piece combines traditional techniques from Japanese kimono making with modern technical sportswear pattern construction.

Take a look at the entire collection above, which you can pick up now from the ACRONYM website. Pieces range from €813 EUR to €1,479 EUR (approx. $905 USD to $1645 USD).
