Honestly though - I never found myself cursing them when I had to adjust.  They are very well made, extremely comfortable, and a less casual look from the Escos. 

I've been wanting a pair of kitos for quite some time now but haven't pulled the trigger.  I think I haven't because I'm not in love with the colors (blk/grey). Olive is cool but I already have the escos.  I do kinda like the sage ones though but I think I'd rather buy them in a clay or dove-ish color.   What size should I be buying? 6 ft 180 pounds / large?  I do have a pair of medium escobars that fit me perfectly now that they stretched out so I think I may go with a medium so they'll stack better.

Tough call.  I think if you are patient and can wear them around the house for a bit without taking them in the wild... mediums may stretch to where you want them.  Anyplace you can try them on?  Buy two sizes and return one for JE.com?  If you are waiting to pull the trigger... I would definitely pull when you find a color you like.  I like them better than my Escos.  Maybe better is wrong word.... differently?  I just feel like I can wear them more often than I would my Escos.

 

FWIW - I think the black kito's are pretty versatile.  Black will likely be my next choice in the Kitos.

Denim looks solid. Is the linen mercer worth the price? Been contemplating copping since it released. It looks good.

I'm in between size small and medium for Esco's. I think if I DO buy a small (I only own medium), they'll stretch and fit slimmer. That being said, I tried Baseline's on in a small and they were way too tight. Just bought Baseline's in Plaster off Grailed in a medium, haven't worn them yet. I am 5'10", 150 lbs., and took a size medium in Grey Kito first and it was too big. I then sold those, and got a small in the Sage and love how they fit. They stack, but don't drop in the crotch and need constant adjustment.

Decided to put on my kitos today. I guess they aren't for everyone, but I like them, they are mad comfortable like the member above stated.  I wear them in my usual M, as with all JE items.

Threw on the two zip ups I received quickly just cause I said I'd post it.  Just your basic zip up hoodies, nothing new.  Charcoal and the silver zippers look fine.  I personally think they look  better with silver zippers than they would with the black zippers on this zip up.  But I'm not a huge fan of the charcoal color so I'm sending it back.  Contemplating on keeping the midnight or not, I do have way too many JE sweatshirts, but only have a black zip up so a change in color would be nice. Idk, I'll see.

This looks great to me...what are your stats.
I'm unlike most and I don't like my JE items to fit snug...I like hem to hang a little.

I've been wanting to pickup some Kitos but I'm n between sizes.
I'm 5'10 170ish but an athletic build. I don't know if I should get a large or medium

I agree. I like the slim fit but def don't like my things being too snug. I'm 5'10, 140, not muscular and all but have a somewhat athletic build. Waist is 28/29. Wear a M in all JE. I ordered both S and M initially and liked the M better.

Kitto's when slim fit like the model so keep that in mind if you want that look.

If JE has some extra summer terry left would love a oversized plaster hoodie. Plaster in the light terry will be nice for summer.

Calling all Miami DJs, sleeveless hoodies now available from JE! 

post #18418 of 25693
@srizvi722 you gotta keep both of those dual zips and move some of the older hoodies.. to me they are just more functional pieces as you can wear them open and closed.. but that's just my opinion. also when you have time can i see pics of the black, and olive washed tees? thanks


*also that olive mercer looks great up there.. did you size down?
post #18419 of 25693

Any sizing tips on the dual zips for a dude in between an M and an L? I wear an M in oversized stuff and most JE tees besides comix, and L villains. I'm thinkin I should be sizing up on it?

 

Just looked and no more larges in black on JEs site... should've hopped on that one on Grailed while i could've.

XL if you want to zip it up and have a looser fit. L if you want the Villian fit
