Personally I don't mind thinner leather, but tight chest + arms and boxy waist sounds like it wouldn't work for me.

Please post your impressions when you get it. I'm always curious to see how different cuts fit different people.

Will do. I have kind of a v-shaped torso in spite of not having any pectoral muscles, so I'm expecting it to look and feel extra ridiculous on me.

Got this in. Kinda hate it. Poor, thin leather. Artsy fit, I guess you'd call it? Too tight in the sleeves, too small in the chest and too loose in the waist. Clearly they know I'm supposed to be taking the year off fashion.

Isn't that from the womens section anyway?

Just got the one I ordered, and it's definitely going back. The chest, shoulders, and upper arms are definitely too small. I don't have large arms by any reasonable standards, but I felt like I was hulking out of the sleeves. A 5 probably would've fit better, but the waist and midsection already tent out something awful on the size 4.

I didn't mind the look and feel of the leather. It's definitely on the thinner side and doesn't have the luxe, supple feel of the 5-zip I just picked up (also calf), but it's in the realm of what I would expect from a washed and treated leather. The variations in color throughout the piece are actually pretty cool. I think the zipper pulls are arguably a little dinky, but I like the shape of them (I think Julius uses the same model?)

I'd consider keeping it if the fit was inverted - more room in the top half, less in the bottom - but I'd call it a better buy for someone who's a true small in tops and has little to no drop.

Welp, sounds like I was in the minority opinion on that one. Can't win em all, I guess. Sorry to hear about the disappointments.

 

Just got some Jil high tops

They're pretty cool. Really high, super sleek, really nice leather...they make my whole room smell nice. I ordered a size too small, I think, so I'm trying another size, and I'm not 100% sure I want to keep them anyway. I don't have any white sneakers, but I don't know if I really need white sneakers, especially leather ones. And I've got a sneaking suspicion they will not age gracefully. But in general, I dig whoever is running Jil's footwear a lot more than the rest of the line these days.

 

Also grabbed this Orley knit:

 

and these Longjourney shorts:

but they're both going back. The LJ shorts are interesting, and both the cut and the fabric look good, but they're a lot heavier than I expected. The fabric on the Orley crewneck is wonderfully textured and feels great, but the ribbing at the neck looks massive on me.

no, it's just a regular waistband. i think they are these. my first thought was to hem but i'm going to try wearing with the white lining/cuffs

white leather sneakers are great to have a pair of, though those look too much like boxing shoes for me.
