Somebody further back in the thread said Xhibition is stocking them instore and are probably willing to do phone order. Might just show up on their website anyways.

Yup, I was the one who asked and they did a phone order for me. I'm assuming it's the "new" Springs, but won't get them until next week to confirm. Didn't bother asking when I ordered.

I think it's cute that JE hired a marketing intern to come up with these abstract stories to somehow connect the products to an event or place.

A message to anyone who missed out on the springs, or any denim/pieces from this season: they will be stocked at other retailers even in the bigger sizes. Furthermore, you should follow this thread because people usually update when those sold-out pieces become available at other stockists. Also get Restocks to follow the brand.

 

Do not feed into this idiotic reselling bs. Sorry for the rant, but yeah just be patient and honestly don't worry if you miss stuff.

I agree that reselling is garbage and a total PIA if you missed out on your size.  But in reality, whoever the guy is posting is not making a cent of these.  After the 10% cut grailed and paypal takes, and shipping - not to mention if they paid tax or shipping on them when they bought them - there's really no money to be made.  We're not talking 5-6X Yeezy markups here.

 

You're basically paying a small premium on the buyer side to avoid having to get lucky catching them when they're back in inventory.  I'm guessing the person is trying to avoid having to pay to ship them back, and they'll disappear from grailed if they're not bought in a week or two.

I sell on Grailed all the time, the fee for $400 is about ~$38, and assuming shipping is probably about $10 thus bringing the total to about $360. I'm fully aware that he only really makes about $5-10 (actually if he used the new customer code he is probably making ~$40), but the whole point of this is that in the end, the person who loses is the buyer. The person who buys is now forced to pay an extra $60 for the pants, when the dude could just return them.

 

Edit: I readjusted this because I got my math all wrong since I thought the Springs were 330, but yeah. Also, I do not consider $60 a small premium

I totally agree - and I'm not in any way condoning reselling.  I'm just saying the odds of catching the restock in a desirable size may be a lot more difficult for some than paying the extra money.  And, in the end, the seller breaks even, grailed gets money for their crappy platform, and the buyer gets shafted (but they get their denim).  Not saying it's right, just the way it is.  There are plenty of people who would rather pay $60 than hunt down a pair of jeans and it only takes one for the jeans to sell.

Jacket looks great.  It has that crushed poplin cotton look, a little bit similar to the old bombers (MOAB). I like the extended neck collar/ribbing.  I think it's going to be very expensive and will most likely have to pass since I already have too many bombers.
