I'll take that bet...on the heavy influence of the entire line.

You're probably right, but I was only responding to the shoe pic. The JE hi tops are much better let's be honest about it. Still doesn't mean he's not drawing very heavy inspo from the w and h line. I really don't know, I have never even been to their website. And I'm not a "stan" whatever the fuck that means, I'll be the first to voice my thoughts if there's something I don't like. Only a couple posts back I posted how I disliked the blk combat boots and also how I thought the flannels were generic and overpriced mawfucks

Keep sipping the Haterade sons, it may blow the mind to think I don't come here to seek approval from guys I don't know. I come here to talk about JE, good or bad now hop off my nuts fellas

combat boots are trash...JE should stray away from footwear. 

its a completely different ball game

Quick question for those of you with flash dual zips, did you size up from your villain size? Chart seems to say they run slimmer but just want to make sure.

If I wanted to keep it zipped up constantly, maybe I would've sized up, but I like the fact that I kept my same villain size. Stretched just like the rest of the terry items.

They're slim but not oversized, as are the villains. Same size.

Nice! It's not super thick or anything, but I was pleasantly surprised with the quality when I got it. It's very dark as well almost black.

Yea... as much as I love most of JE (and maybe that's why I've been so critical lately) these shoes are just not good. The high tops are okay I suppose, but way too basic. I don't even get the boots, such a weird shape.

I could definitely see that. I've been a long time lurker but I remember when John used to post in the older Wings + Horns threads. He was sorta a stan for W+H before he designed his own clothes I think. Take a look at his posting history starting around 2011, he even had the black suede hi-tops back then. Definitely influenced by the W+H aesthetic of finely made basics... even specializing in terry. John probably thought after a while he could do things better than W+H (or at least more in line of making exactly what he wanted when W+H wasn't perfect) and started his own stuff (which is right around the time hype died down on W+H)... honestly the John Elliott line is what I wished W+H had evolved into instead of where they are now.

 

 

This post is sorta interesting... maybe foreshadowing his initial foray into making terry hoodies?

Wow, that's inspiring tbh

Wondering if anyone else has had issues with their anti-expo tee? I've been wanting to buy it in maroon but have been scared off temporarily
