@bobby321You should only have to pay taxes, no duties. Here's a calculator you can use to approximate how much you'll pay

I own a M Charcoal Villain I’m willing to part with. It’s been lightly washed a few times, but always hang dried. Don’t wear it much anymore. If you’re interested, PM a price and I’ll send a few pics to see if we can work something out. Thanks.

Does anyone know what sneakers the model is wearing in this photo? They're really nice and any help would be greatly appreciated!

Are the washed mercers tshirts oversized compared to the standard ones? Steven alan is selling them as oversized but the measurements seem smaller than the typical ones on je.co

Not oversized. Only the pocket ones are oversized

On a side note, with an end of an era over at slp, I really hope JE can continue to evolve their denim in terms of washes and details. The sample destroyed piece from a few years really was impressive.

Does anyone know if the Black OS Hoodie is heavier (thicker) than the Clay?

I wouldn't say it's any heavier or thicker than the Clay. It did seem to be a little bit stiffer, due to the dark dye maybe?

How would this leather hold up in the rain? Would this be a terrible idea to buy as a light jacket for spring since it's wet up here a lot?

 

Haven't seen much chatter about the piece and wondering what either @Johnelliott or others that have purchased can say about it. Dropping a stack is tough on a jacket but this thing was damn nice.

 

I'm usually a medium in all hoodies (Villain, Kake, Rue, OS crewneck) but would definitely take the large I tried on. Medium was way too tight underneath the armpits. Felt like the jacket would rip if I moved incorrectly.

Wait a second, Saks in boston carries JE?

Yeah, bought my size L Swarm. Exchanging it because first one had a big scratch under the pocket which I didn't see.

Their customer service is very so so. Lots of the salespeople are aloof, looking in the mirror at their slip-on dress shoes and ignoring people that need help. They are very insistent at reeling in the same sales associate each time you come in... It's kind of annoying in my opinion. I worked in specialty retail for almost ten years too, so I get it, but still.

Thanks man, took me forever to find their JE section, but was awesome to be able to see all the fabrics and whole bunch of this Spring/Summer line in person. Still thinking about that military raincoat I saw.

Go to the Tannery. Same selection plus some. Better customer service as well. I had an awful time with Saks. The sales manager who was more or less the 'overseer' of the sales associates had to whip out his iPhone to call the guy that was helping me, and make a snide comment that he takes two hour lunch breaks, and that since "it's his dude" he lets it slide. Returned the Swarm jacket due to an imperfection in the leather - a white scratch, if you will. This 'manager' was pleading with my since he couldn't locate Daryl to keep my defective, almost 1K jacket. He said the repair shop in house could put water on it to fix it... Are you kidding me?! I paid all I did for the coat, Saks had no more size L through the company, so I returned it and ordered directly from JE. I even got 10% off from Saks at first, and sacrificed that. Suffice to say, I won't be back to Saks Boston... EVER. I worked retail (run specialty) for almost a decade in my young career. I have never treated anyone the way this store treated me. It took a full hour to return something I purchased the day before.

I used to work for a sneaker company that was affiliated with CNCPTS/Tannery ownership, and have been treated like a family member when shopping. It's a nice perk, and they know their shit. Allowed me to exchange my Zinc Cast's that were two sizes too big, etc. Props to my homie Rowland who hooks it up - that's my dude.

This post more or less sums up Boston streetwear shopping. Support Tannery and CNCPTS. They are legit and know how to run their businesses, respectively. Great people inside and out.
