uniqlo, sz L


je+co, villain, sz XL



I'm a L in most other things and prefer a slimmer fit.

this was very slim through chest and skin tight around forearms, and I don't even have particularly big arms. 6-3, 215, 44 jacket for ref.

Also, there's no way somebody 5'9" and 170 lbs is a small in any brand but old navy.  I'm 6' and 175 and I'm usually a L.

 

It fights quite a bit tighter than it looks in that photo. I think the thickness of the material contributes to it not looking so bad but the arms are crazy tight and definitely uncomfortable (I cant even imagine if I had arms like some of you guys out there)

Hey guys - first, thanks for the business and all the feedback in sizing.

From a design standpoint, these are cut to be high and tight. The terry fabric will stretch, and the tightness in the arm combined with the heft of the terry will create stacking and creases with wear. We are trying to do something a little bit different than the traditional, loose hoodie, and with wear, the hoodie should conform to your body, loosen, and be really comfortable. Not to negate anyone's personal size preference, or to say that the sizing isn't off for some of you or just too tight, but the cut is our intention.

The below pictures are the fit as intended, if that helps inform anyone...

Again, thanks and feel free to shoot me a pm or email if you have any questions.

Ha ha, not sure what to tell you.  I wear a small in just about everything, extra small in some outerwear, depending on the brand, 36 jacket.  Nothing skin-tight either.

For those wanting pics of the sweats on model.
post #411 of 4386
those look really tight on the calves. I want a pair but that part worries me a bit. every pair of jeans I have is painted onto my calves at 6.25 hem and 28-29 waist.
post #412 of 4386

^I'm the same size and I actually hope the small fits a bit tighter on the calves like that. Too many "fitted" sweatpants end up looking super baggy on me.

i have a pair of slim fitting nike sportswear sweats and they've stretched out considerably in the body, at least a size; french terry as well. i'd assume it would be the same for the escobars

post #414 of 4386

Yeah. I really wish we'd be able to get some measurements for the escobar, but like the guy said, this fabric will stretch. 3 days of regular wear and the villain hoody already fits looser.

I'm planning on the grey duo and the black. Black Villain + Black Escobar + All Black Achilles AND THEN I WILL BE A NINJA!

post #415 of 4386

Can we get a rough guide to sizing for the escobar sweats? Like should a 32 waist be a M or L, etc?

post #416 of 4386
Very excited about the direction of this brand.

Guaranteed to pick up a Cast in Carbon. Though I'm wondering if there is a big enough difference between the Nimbus and Coast to pick up both?
A Villain will be essential this winter.

Next spring tho, WOW eek.gif . John should just take my money now. The S/S Hoodie with a hanging drawstring, good lord! and the coated denim.

i just recently found out about John Elliot & Co....very interested in what i see on the site, especially the escobar sweats!  how often do items get restocked typically?  i know they aren't for sale yet but i imagine they will sell out very quickly...just curious in case i miss out on the launch.

Sweet. Can't wait. Is stock expected to be limited?
