agreed with @dcvm1979... not a fan of the new washes for the most part or nothing I would buy at least. But I have heard from a few people now that the cut on the latest denim is unreal so hopefully that keeps going

is oak a je exclusive color or do other stockists get oak as well?

I haven't been impressed with my JE denim as time goes on.  Speaking on the Spring, in my opinion, they don't have a particularly great touch of stretch.  When I think stretch, I think the ability to snap back as well.  My JE denim more so has give, which is leading to extremely baggy, saggy denim that frankly does not look too great after a couple weeks.  Initial cut is nice.  Some of the cleaner washes are nice.  But overall, haven't been a huge fan.

I had a similar situation with my stretch canyons. Finally had to dry clean them and they went back to their shape. Not sure if this would help out the spring denim, but I'll definitely be dry cleaning mine again when I feel like they're losing their shape.

not a huge fan of the new denim either : slimmer thighs plus stretch material makes them look and feel like leggings IMO

With regard to the villain talk a few pages ago I still wear mine the shape is good and it's more minimalist than the other sweaters they sell
I think there are a few things they could improve if they were to release a villain 2.0

1. The kangaroo pocket is fucking useless but would be easily fixed by just closing the inner part so the two sides don't connect . Also make the pocket more angled
This would mean you could actually put stuff in it and also more comfortable for your hands to rest inside

2. The hood is too small . Makes me look pinhead with it up. I'm not saying it should be rick Owens sized but a bit bigger would be cool


Finally with regards to people not being allowed to selli stuff on here yeah it's stupid
Anybody else wants to start a thread specifically for buy sell trade it might be good

I'm pretttty sure he just meant the pocket isn't very functional; things fall out easily, can't hold much in the first place. Not saying that he doesn't like the fact that it's there.

I read the link and still have no idea what on earth john elliott is talking about

Seems like a pretty lame "inspiration"

I doubt anyone really cares about the kangaroo pocket.
I completely forget its even there until I feel like warming up my hands or want to put my keys somewhere then I think "damn, I wish this hoodie had actual fucking pockets"

What do you guys think the best t-shirt is to layer with the rue hoodie?

post #21251 of 25337

Just got an Oversized Cropped Hoodie and feeling pretty disappointed by the quality and fit. I've been pretty happy with the terry quality on the Villain and Rue but the OSCH fabric feels flimsy to the touch and the weave is messy. I know inspiration behind Season 7 was grunge and the hoodie is intended to look worn overtime but the stitching and fabric feels just cheap.

 

Sizing is another problem. Being 'oversized' I thought there was no need to size up like in Villain. When worn TTS there is not draping in the shoulders and the hem is not loose like on the JE webstore.

 

Hood still uber cool though

I know other companies have done the half zip before (i.e. Fear of God) but it looks like it's going to be th next big hoodie trend. Champion is going to make them now. And it even has a rue like bottom hem

Great news for  people who don't want to pay $500 for a FoG half zip hoodie
