For Spring Summer we wanted to open the neck a bit to layer with the Mercer Tank and Curve U-Neck. For Fall you can expect closer to a classic crew silhouette.

Will the fall version still have the quilted panel?

Does that mean the product shots online are of the Fall/Winter version?

Awesome. Does that mean the gray/gray colorway will be making a return?

John Elliot + Co Denim Review

  • Wash: The Cast in Coated Drake
  • Size: 33


http://shop.johnelliott.co/collections/denim/products/the-cast-coated-drake

I recently picked these denim up because they looked to be a nice gray wash, a staple for my wardrobe.

Due to the weather and ordering from NYC, it took a while to get shipped but today they finally arrived. The whole time during the wait I kept doubting the way I sized these as from other members it looked like people sized down or stayed TTS. I actually went up in tagged size albeit the provided measurements and ordered a size 33.

Trying them on these are definitely cut on a slimmer pattern for jeans, which is nice and I can appreciate but probably A) Cannot wear or B) Need to size up 1 more
Quote:
Measurements:
Size 33
  • Waist across approx. 17.5"
  • Front rise approx. 10.5"
  • Thigh from crotch, approx. 10.75" from seam to seam, 11.5" across
  • Hem (taper): 7.25"
  • Inseam approx. 33"
    (Measurements done with the denim lied flat, BiG style)

I am 5'9 and 150 - 155 lbs. These particular jeans are very slim in the seat area, and hug my thighs.

The good:
  1. At first I was a bit turned off by how light weight the denim is (or material of the trousers). Then it really started growing on me as I do prefer more of a light weight bottom than previous predecessors i.e. raw denim. The lighter fabric allows the denim to drape nicely and stack well at the hem. I didn't bother trying them on with shoes but I can imagine pretty well that the taper combined with the inseam length and fabric would allow for optimal stacking.
  2. The wash or treatment of the trouser is great. It feels like a dirty kitchen table without the stickiness, but has enough feel in the texture to remind you of sandpaper. Just a nice overall texture when you touch it. I would not say the color is gray as it looks online but more of a dirty mint color probably due to the underside weave, which is a nice green color. Imagine camo and parkas
  3. I was never really a fan of button fly closures but given the slimness and lower rise, the button fly is great complement to the overall silhouette i.e. though the seat is slim on me and hugs my thighs it does not oddly bunch up or pull


The bad:
  1. I still think the fabric is a little light. I feel like I can tear it apart. It really is a spring-summer weight bottom FWIW. I cannot imagine someone sizing down on these and allowing the garment to stretch. I just feel like doing so would damage or even rip the fabric at the seams. Perhaps I am giving too little credit to JE + Co., so, I'll let them chime in on that i.e. how much stretch do their denim have.


I may consider sizing up. I actually ordered these pair as a measure to see how I should size in general since I am more interested in the wash seen online of the "Cast in Coast". Looks fantastic!

And if anyone knows for sure sizing up would help, please feel free to give me a PM. If anyone has a size 34 and can confirm some measurements that'd be awesome.
