this confirms it for me.  sizing down was the way to go on this hoody.  I went the same size as my Villains and while I loved the piece itself, I hated how it looked on.

This cracked me up. I agree - it doesn't look so cropped and the model on the site doesn't even have anything layered underneath.  I believe the previous version the model rocked a mercer tank under - which is how I wear mine.

Random washing question here... what are your guys' opinions on / experiences with washing vs dry cleaning JE terry? 

post #14900 of 25624

The reason why the price is increasing is simple...supply and demand.

 

john elliot is uprising fast crashing into the fashion scene by the storm and those designers tend  to raise their prices because of  the word i stated above.

 

without a doubt, john elliot is one of the top tier brands now that goes for the most simplistic modern classic timeless style that the fact u see models are worn with common project shoes.

 

now if they went for the flashier route, you can bet the prices would be twice as much.

Although I have one question, about this.

How thin is that hoodie? I'm hoping it's really thin type of hoodie.

Yea bro - I second that.  And I am not a big clothing brand guy.  JE had me at simple, quality you can feel items.  Now it's getting slightly steep without any unique details.

 

On another note, I went to Union LA to day and grabbed black hooded villain.  I need a good "go to" black hoodie, and this looks and feels like it.  I ordered the black Rue, but I don't love the side slits.  I wish they were half the depth...but that's just me.  Returning it and keeping the villain. 

 

Also, I tried on the OS Hoodie in Olive in XXL (that's all they had).  It was huge and I wish i knew if i were a L or an XL.  I'm an XL in the Villain, so assuming a L?  Anyways, i really liked the light cloth.  Perfect for LA...but should have been $50 cheaper in my opinion.  You just get a much more substantial hoodie for the same price from JE.  Would make sense. 

 

I also tried on the Flatback Thermal Shorts in black.  I actually loved them.  Not so much to pay $200 for lightweight shorts... but man, the L fit great and these are perfect weekenders.  I would scoop up if they ever went on sale, but it's tough to stomach that much for light cotton shorts.

 

Overall, i'll keep my eye out for the shorts, and I may scoop up a L OS hoodie if I can;t get my hands on a Kake Mock...

Machine wash and hang dry on my regular JE terry and tees. 

The more expensive pieces like jackets and loopwheel, dry clean 

 

Never had any issues so far

Its similar as the Villain hoodie. 

Very slim fitting though so recommend go up 1 size

Ok thanks, good to know but I meant the material itself, is it thick or thin? cuz I want to pair with a varsity jacket that fits me nicely so therefore i need a THIN type of hoodie, not like linen thin obviously but you know?

If you want thin, go with the recent released hoodies from SS16.

Saw many members saying how thin it was compare to terrys from past seasons so had passed up.

The fit is very slim fitting and the terry is normal JE terry not to heavy but not thin at all it will keep you warm 

post #14908 of 25624

Anyone have issues with the difference in sizing between Cast 2 raw denim colors?

 

I copped a size 32 in Stretch Kane, Stretch Obsidian, and Stretch Graphite. Kane and Graphite are exactly the same. Obsidian is NOTICEABLY smaller. Measurements are more like a 31.

When considering the price of the OS, remember the living color wash process adds to the cost as well. The Washed Mercer Tee had a 35% price increase ($26) over the standard Mercer Tee, so taking that into account, a standard, unwashed OS would retail at $128 at the least, or $176 at the most.
