Tried on a small at azalea. I'm a smaller stature, and they fit like leggings on me.

A word to the wise JE fans, I'm about 5' 6" 170 w/ a 31-32 inch waist. Purchased a pair of coasts in 31 about a year ago, and after about 3 months of wear, not only did the waist stretch to about a 33, but the denim lost many of its fitted qualities... For the last month or so I've been foregoing wearing the jeans, as I couldn't stand the fit, it was almost like wearing a straight/relaxed fit style than a fitted one. (Pinrolling them did help, but I am not a huge fan of that look)... A few days ago I said f*ck it, and did what in hindsight was a terrible idea, I threw them into the wash, and then straight into the dryer. Now I know the label says dry clean only, but the way I saw it, if I didn't try to shrink them they would never be worn again... Did they shrink, you ask? Yes. Is the fit better? Yes. But how about that wash? It will never be the same... The wash took out much of the contrast, and intricate fading details. Will definitely be looking to pick up a new pair in the coming weeks, and will be sizing down for sure. Just not sure if I want the coasts again, or this new spring color.

 

(Thought I would share this experience for anyone considering doing the same thing. Not a regular poster, but i do stay up on the thread.)

Best place to buy villain hoodies to be shipped to Canada? Looking for black.

Also, is the consensus to size up? 5'10, 165 pounds here.

can anyone compare the sprayed mercers vs the washed mercers? the color effects appear similar so wanted to know if anyone has both or tried them on and can compare

Also quick question... Why did the price on coasts increase from over a year ago?... Is there a substantial difference? The pair I have is the cast 2 as well, but I believe I only paid 270

just a heads-up to the sf community here: looks like there are a few sizes of washed OS hoodies available on the JE website. Large in both Black and Blue colors and XL in Olive. Unfortunately none in clay.

 

Just thought I'd share because I know a few of you were looking

Roden Gray, Four Horsemen, Understudy, Nomad, Contraband, and Ssense are Canadian retailers.

Almost all of the size downs look pretty awful. Not sure why people keep doing that.

Anyone have a medium burgundy villain for sale?

I understand the not sizing down on the kake for the intended look but id have to agree with it depending on your body. For me, i sized down due to the size guide i knew certain aspects would work better slightly smaller. Big thing for me was the sleeve length. And the whole "sleeve stacking" thing lets be honest, you can make it look cool for photos but it definitely isnt going to stay that way and just becomes bunched looking like sleeves that are just too long. Obviously this wont be the case for everyone, i just happen not to have long arms so thats what worked best for me. Looking at the size guide i could tell with the width i could still get that slightly oversized look by sizing down so i could fit a little better in other parts of the hoodie while still mainting the look and cropped fit i was hoping for. Kinda wish the hood wasnt as small but overall i really like the hoodie, however would never begin to think about paying resell for it tho. Those ppl on ebay think they have bred 1's or something.
