Thanks for the heads up! Just scooped up a pair of the grey grey escobars.

Is the Riga from this season, different from the Riga of last season at all?  I'm not talkin about just color, but material and fabrics.  I ask because this season only grey and black are offered whereas last season you had duo Rigas.  Really like the contrast of the duo Rigas, just don't know about the differences.  Thanks.

This season's Riga is very different. We are using the same terry we do on this season's Escobar, Villain, & Flash. It is custom milled, heavier, more durable, and an overall better fabric. It is also flatlock stitched.

So even though I like the Duo Riga (design), you would recommend just going with this season's one color newer/refreshed Riga instead?  In terms of quality?

I was scared for the fit of the sweats from a couple of people. I ordered my "normal" size of sweats... I usually like bigger sizes in sweats. My main concern was my calfs since they measure at around 16.5 to 16.75. putting them on I actually got them to stack just a little bit. I can't wait for it to get cold enough in Texas to start wearing these sweats! Completely satisfied! Now I'm looking for size 36 in some blue denim jeans! Holla at me John Elliott + Co! Keep up you guys!

They are just very different. This season's quality is improved. Last season's Riga is lighter weight, if that interests you.

My Villain delivery finally arrived today. They mean it when they say it's slim. XS typically fits me fine, but I can feel how slim my SMALL Villain is. It would probably be uncomfortable on me if I was a fat boy.

Great piece though. Now I can understand why JE has been having this crazy demand recently in the Streetwear section. I haven't been this impressed with a hoodie since B.Son back in F/W of '07/'08

fwiw, it stretches a lot...had mine for about a week now and has stretched noticeably pretty much everywhere (in a good way).

Can't say enough good things about this brand. The Villain is awesome, every time I wear it I like it more and more. Also agree with the previous poster about the stretching, it was tight when I first got it but figured it would stretch to a more comfortable size and it is pretty much perfect now.

Escobar sweats are amazing. I got the black and the grey/grey and haven't worn anything else since they arrived. I'll probably grab the grey/black in october now just because they are that perfect.

I am 6'3" and 197 lbs, my Escobar pants in a size XL fit me like leggings. I like to wear my clothes fitted, but I might as well have been Peter Pan.

 

I don't know how they fit some of you guys so well. Someone mentioned they were 6'4"/ 225lbs and they fit them perfect.

 

I was really looking forward to these, but now I have to settle on the refund.

Just wanted to chip in about sizing and provide some "natural light" photos for people that were asking about the wash of the coast jeans. I opted to stick with my usual size small on the hoodies and tank. I'm 5'7" and 130lbs. I found it fit perfectly out of the bag and I enjoyed the fitted look. It does stretch out nicely after a few wears. Quality is excellent, really comfortable, nice middle weight sweater for fall. I agree on the hood design too, not exactly the most functional, needs to be a little looser to look normal if you wear it up.

 

I was looking for a light wash jean and like some other guys on here was interested in the stone washed apc denim that Kanye had, but the fit on them was a little ridiculous. Really happy I went with the je + co coast. I usually wear a 28 - 30 in most denim (nudie, jbrand) and I decided to go with a 29 which fit perfectly(all the creases fell into place). Not too tight in the waist or calves, a little more of a " slim straight" cut (by no means baggy), so if you're looking for a skinny jean, this isn't it. The right pocket is just about impossible to use, so don't put anything in there or else you'll never be able to get it back out. Left pocket is usable. Again, materials are excellent and they're very comfortable and my favourite pair of denim to wear. The light wash is excellent. I'd stay stick true to size on the washed denim or you can go 1" down and it'll loosen up for sure.

 

Hope this helps!

 

Thanks for all the contributions so far to this thread, it was a big help!

Any plans for tees/tanks in more interesting colors in the cotton/modal blend? I was looking forward to the Sonora stuff.
