Which cut would you say is the most similar to JE - Ace or Thin? I have the Springs and really like them, though they've stretched quite a bit with wear, especially on the waist. If anything, I'd be interested in something a touch more tapered at the knee and down. Looking at the fit visualizer, it looks like JE is almost a blend of the two cuts measurement-wise. 

If you want tapered from the knee down, go with the Thins.  Ace is basically straight from the knee down, coming to a slightly larger hem.

Had my eyes on brown terry since the show. Wanted a raw edge hoodie but I'll settle for the escobars. Dark navy looks amazing too but I don't want that many pieces.

I'm guessing flannel ships today along with new orders.

Looking forward to some real fall pieces now. I think I'm good with terry and tees

Welp... Was 'timed out' for selling on here, but I definitely haven't attempted to since the clear warnings about doing so. Pretty annoying to get kicked off with no warning notice/response to tweets directed at SF etc. But I'm back! Thanks to my homie out there who helped me out, you know who you are!

You get a much more skinny and tapered look right out of the box and the stretch allows for a fairly narrow leg opening (5.5"-6" i believe) without risking ppl not being able to get their feet in. If you're looking for a quality staple pair of denim you don't yet have, I'd go acne. 


Agree with everything you said. I only venture into R&B denim after someone told me on here it was a great fit. The fit on R&B Fit 1 denim is amazing especially for the price (you can always get some type of code for the online store and get it under retail) but like Gerg said the quality is not up there compared to say JE Acne or RRL. As far as cuts R&B Fit1 is more similar to Acne Thin, I prefer the Ace cut though its not skinny tight but I wouldn't say its a straight cut plus they got a better range of washes in that cut.

Bothered me so I ended up selling them all. Has this been an issue for anyone else or just me? Really interested in hearing feedback on this matter? It's literally the only thing holding me back from buying any more esco's at all. And I don't abuse them either, I wear them casually.

@Johnelliott

Please contact our customer service and they'll address any issues. Thanks for supporting the brand!

Even when I wore them out to dinners, outings, etc., mostly sitting down. Otherwise I'd wear jeans or whatever. I ask because I've tried on size large and those are just too baggy, and small would be tight, until they stretch, but no point if the stitching keeps becoming undone, which I have also experienced with the navy KITH collab esco's from the sakura project when I was experimenting with size small. I follow washing instructions and sometimes even put them in wash bags so they don't directly touch the interior of the washing machine. Makes no sense. You're right though, I guess I could contact them next time when the situation arises but it's just quite frustrating. Thanks for your input, but I know I can't be the only one as this has happened to some of my friend's as well.

I have 5 pairs of the escobars and I honestly don't even know what you're talking about in your first post. Also, sitting in them doesn't constitute a situation where them completely coming undone in two areas is a valid and reasonable expectation.  I've worn every pair more than 5 times and mine are all in perfect condition except for the usual slight stretching to form.

 

Your pair is completely defective so you don't contact JE for a return/refund but instead buy another colour? That one ends up being defective so you buy another colour and you end up with 6 colours? Seems a lil crazy to me. Also I noticed that you said large is too big but small is too tight, have you tried them in medium? The quality of the esco's in general is very on point, and I would think that by now after all of these years, if there truly was an objective problem in the construction of the garment and the location of the flatlock stitching, that it would have been addressed long ago....

Can anybody attest to how the Dark Navy color looks in person? Thinking about picking up the Escobars

post #20980 of 25315

Damn, I love the silver RiRis on the Dark Navy. Going to have to get back into this.

Yeah. This..just normal wear and tear on mine
I wore my black escobars probably 1,000 items and washed and dryed them like 300 items and they are perfect, slight stretching, very minimal knee "boobs" (as jbidwal called it, genius). The only thing that came undone was the stitching of the tag. I finally re-upped on the blacks a a couple ago.

Speaking of dark navy escobars on this thread, I wore my midnights today and the dark navy is so much better than midnight. Need to cop it.

It's not defective, I personally think the manner in which it's stitched isn't as strong as I'd like it to be. It's not coming apart or anything, but the areas where there are two stitch lines running across on the knee panels, and the area where the pant itself meets with the cuff, one of those stitch lines become undone. The flatlock stitching is well done, that's not the problem I have. Maybe you're just incredibly skinny so yours don't stretch as much, IDK. I guess my question was more directed towards individuals who are a bit more muscular in the legs.

 

And I was at a point where honestly I was buying JE for no reason, but not anymore. I really do like the esco's. The stitching becoming undone didn't make the sweatpants fall apart or anything but it did make it hang more and look a slightly bit more loose. That's why it bothered me a lot. I don't mind the natural stretching, I already knew that occurred. I can't even take pictures of what I mean since I sold all my sweats already. I'll just contact JE to see what they have to say if I do end up purchasing a pair in the future.

I like the navy more than midnight blue too. Actually going to order a pair and see if I like it better than the brown

@supremeanarchy Should have contacted customer service right away, I had the stitching come off the knee area on one of my escobars and they took care of me.
