The material is rougher than I expected, especially because JE cares so much about fabrics and makes custom fabrics. The buttons are complete garbage, cheap plastic feeling. Never thought I'd care about buttons so much. My military shirt has nice buttons, the other dress shirts I have from JE have snap buttons so the military shirt is the only one I can compare. Overall it's a great looking piece and I'm going to keep it, just wish the quality was better for the price.

Buttons can make or break a shirt sometimes, and you only realize it when you run into bad ones.

Kinda agree on JE releasing too many sweatshirts...but you can never have enough sweatshirts/sweatpants. It's a little difficult to narrow down which ones to purchase since there are so many damn options, but at least there's something for everyone's taste/style.  Pretty sure JE will slam us with heat when FW season actually starts, and the FW lookbook styles can actually be worn..damn heat waves everywhere.

Unlikely we will see a Nero restock considering it was part of the 7.5 release, but from the looks of the season 8 show we will see some new black denim eventually and either a dark blue or obsidian




Also, the flannel just released on JE so sure it'll be up on Barneys or saks in no time

Hard to say just yet, but my Plumas fit a lot slimmer than my Springs in the same size to begin with.  I've worn the Plumas five times or so and haven't noticed any bad stretching.  They are keeping their shape so far, and the fit on them is pretty perfect for me.

 

Based off of everything I've read here and my own experience, I feel like this is the deal with JE denim: If you have thick legs or really athletic thighs, you're not going to fit in to the size you need for your waist and you will end up unhappy with how they end up fitting after the waist gives.  If you can start with the size that's really snug everywhere, you will be pretty happy after a few wears.  

Development team is also probably still finding their sweet spot with the denim.  My Cast Carbons would not break in at all, they are still difficult to move in.  Then my Springs were maybe a little too sloppy with the stretch.  The Plumas are the best fit yet and so far the best with regards to the stretch as well.  

 

Side-note: I don't typically burn through jeans.  I have a pretty big rotation, so if I was wearing these every single day or four to five times a week, I might have a different story.  Anyway, hope that's helpful.

The reason I ask about the stretch is because they look exactly like the spring denim but with a different wash. I have springs and while they broke in nicely, they dont offer much actual stretch (when crouching for example) The scarabs on the other hand have plenty of stretch and offer lots of ROM.

I appreciate the updated dimensions on the plumas and newer denim, since I needed to taper both the springs and scarabs.

I agree. I have fairly skinny legs and the 28 work decent for me. The waist is loose on them again but the rest fit fine. I do notice they stretch a bit more than slp denim but I'm happy with my skittles and cropped white. They made the cut slimmer starting with the cropped and I think that cut works well with the stretching.

Excuse the obscene gesture from my brother. He was trying on a hoodie at Zara that looks identical to a hoodie we often see on this forum....

I mean, "identical" is definitely a stretch.  I've seen a Ferrari and a Honda and never confused them because they both have 4 wheels.

Fair enough, shouldn't have used "identical", was having some feels when I saw it lol! That's the industry though, poaching for days

GQ put up a couple videos where the designers talk about the concepts, but no preview of the actual items yet:

If the second video sounds right, it looks like the stuff that he presented at the end was a preview, so similar items to things we've seen before? Not all that dissimilar to his first gap collection, items like the mainline with some subtle changes here and there? I loved the first gap collection and wouldnt expect dramatically different shit to be his gap looks... just my 2 cents

Hey guys,
New to posting, been reading this forum for a while now. I bought a pair of the black terrains size 34. I have a pair of odeons 33, but I knew these would fit tighter so I went size up. Normally wouldn't get pair of denim with so much distressing but figured I'd just give it a try. I feel these are a lil too tight in the calves area. Are they going to stretch out? If not I'm thinking about returning them for the plumas instead.. And sorry for the background, don't have a full length mirror so I gotta stand on the tub like an ass lol.
