An intro to Erollson Hughes Acronym

We go again,

The guy behind Nike ACG menswear and what the streets would call the AF1 Abomination and the great redeemer Acronym Presto and what I will call the father of origami jackets. Errolson Hughs

Who is Acronym?

acronym-fw-1516-15

Acronym started out as a contract design firm who made their seed money designing gear for extreme sports and branched our to a personal design company in 1999 to make their own gear developed in house. 2002 Acronym was set on to the scene making products for years before cross pollination.

With their outerwear aesthetic Michaela and Errolson have been slowly building a credible brand who has an amazing aesthetic with prices not for the light pocketed. Kickass code names and well made app areal for those who are really out here appreciating the samurai Techwear look

Industrial Techwear

The ideal behind these pieces are just so incredible. I’m a lover of industrial design and will continue to analyse and adore the creation fabric and contortion of materials. Learning all about plastics and how they can be moulded into becoming weather proof is something I hold in high regard; each thing being made out of plastic but the polymer constitution changes its properties.

What I know Errolson for the most for is the Nike ACG collaboration before I knew any details I saw him in the most well constructed garments I’ve seen made for a man. The ACG collaborations with Nike have been the most creative thing industrially I think Johanna has something to do with why this — spawning the morphing of the AirMax 180 and 270 for people to create their own versions (more of my thoughts on this later). — The well constructed garments are a wonder to look at the sliding pockets shell form zips Male the silhouettes minimal but are made with the most complex techniques. Whoever has been steering this Techwear ship at Nike in the past 3/4 years well done.

Air Force 1 and Presto

The sneakers have been a contentious for the AF1 the Acronym team kind of destroyed the detailing and added a zipper but it slowly became a grailed Force one. The Presto though, straight away it was loved and adored from my purview and grew as a cornerstone of Techwear functional technical and full of utility.


Editors Note

Errolson Hugh’s has had a great team around him all the way through forged their own path and created a 20 year old company with such a high value now I adore the ability to make something of that level.

The Renaissance of Techwear is here and soon will be the most prominent form of menswear design due to its technical construction

A Note On: Articulating Yourself is a Worthy Goal

We Go Again,

When I was 15 we had a family meeting. About me.

It was about my incapability to articulate myself, I said to them, (my family) that if I were to learn to start speaking my mind to them they would not like me very much.

Ten years later that reigned true, i reached a singularity within myself and was able to say what I feel whenever I felt it (at the most poignant time).

That was the single most important moment in my life (as it came to invoking the word) because learning to articulate myself as a human being meant I was not only facing inwards and asking myself tough questions about my reality and person but I’m able to do so when it calls for it from my family to my mentee and everyone else who needs it.

I’ve noticed whatever advice that was which I took on when it came to saying how I feel there are people older and younger who are unable to do so for whatever reason.

I guess I’m writing this to give whoever needs it permission because it is the best advice I took on. It took me 10 years and 100+ books, I feel something that it would not take anyone else that much time; just go for it. I don’t see a worthier goal to go for than learning about yourself and being able to articulate it to others.

OYOS – University of Self

We go again

I took a break from life I took a break from money I took a break from women the game and all of what makes society society.

I was a me that was okay but it wasn’t who I knew I could be, who I wanted to be, the type of man that makes me love myself and my actions.

The type of person that lives OYOS 24/7, that’s a hard draw because OYOS came in waves and forms of necessity not my natural state of creativity.

Being a person that lives by principle is hard it doesn’t make sense to everyone the process is taxing and people talk to you weird funny and try to drag you down when you do it.

It’s not for everyone and it’s not for just anyone to see you go through it I had the luxury of it only be family see me go through it. It took my everything to stay the course but I’m happy I did it.

I went to the university of self, where you learn Principles, Discipline, Action, Strategy, Specialised Knowledge, Money, Method & Character. Learning to be your true self takes time courage and a willingness to accept who you really are no exceptions.

Being who I am just today knowing I’m exactly where I should be and I have a real foundation underneath me feels good. I want to recommend everyone do it, I just know how life is and learning is moved by other things by the word but the physical manifestation of it and the texture of your physical space.

I wrote this as a note to myself writing aloud, maybe to that one or two that’s on the edge of performing the same thing. I just want to tell myself and everyone else it’s worth it. I hope I can become a worthy example to someone out there.
