post #21721 of 25523
Sorry if this has been covered before, but 1450 pages is a lot to sift thru

I only have one JE piece, oversized cropped hoody in a 1/S. I like how it fits, but it doesn't fit oversized like i imagined it would, it looks a lil baggy but fits rather snug

What size Villain would u guys recommend? I would have assumed M, but the measurements on the size guide show that the S in the oversized cropped is still a decent amount larger than the villain in M, so im kinda thrown off lol

i know the villain is a slim fit, but absolutely hate hoodies which are too slim

I'm 5'8 abt 158 pounds

Would appreciate any help guys

I have similar stats, and your size is likely a small. It's intended to be a slim fit, so maybe just don't buy the hoodie. Thats really all I can say haha.

you shoould get a medium

Medium, I'm a little taller than you, similar weight. Medium is good, small would be too tight. Or buy both and return the other

I'm roughly the same size as you 5'8 about 155-160lbs with a 40inch chest. I went with a large in the hooded villain and it feels perfect for me. But my personal preference is that I like my sweatshirts a little baggy for layering. I believe a medium would have been find given a few wears to stretch it out but I tend to wash them after 3 or so wears. That said I also have a black villain crewneck in large that feels a bit looser than my hooded ones.

Have a pair a scarab denim, definitely don't want to mess them up but taking them to the dry cleaner is such a hassle. Is it okay if they are machine washed cold and gentile? If not what happens? Thanks

I'm 5-7 and when I was at 155 medium fit well. It might appear tight initially but it stretches.

I would do a tap water / cold water gentle cycle wash with woolight dark. Just lay flat to dry. Steam them after to get the stiffness out.

@mdephillips above, also don't forget to turn them inside out

Anyone has the size chart to the Cargo Pant from season 7 (FW16) didn't cop because of the draw string waist so planning on making some based off that fit with a regular pant waist. In particular looking for the size chart for size 29 & 30.

I'm pretty positive the a-holes over at CNCPTS stole my money--will dispute it, but it's still annoying.  I ordered both the maroon and grey half zips on 8/24, and it was supposedly shipped out 8/25.  Have not received it and tracking has not been updated.  They have not responded to my multiple e-mails in the past week.  And their telephone number is out of service?  Ranting just because @Johnelliott should not allow BS companies like CNCPTS to be one of their stockists..SMH

I posted about them in this very thread a few weeks ago. I ordered from them because I live near their Cambridge shop and figured it'd be fast.

Absolute nightmare of an experience. Won't get into too many details, but after over two full weeks of reptitively emailing them and calling them (both to no reply) I finally received my product. No working tracking, no apology email, nothing. They're not too nice of a staff in-person either so I shouldn't have expected much.

I used to do business with CNCPTS as I was a tech rep for a small shoe company, and we did a collab with these guys. I have nothing but good things to say about the ownership/family/Deon & co. They always hook it up, and are always up front and honest when I've done business with them.

 

I've heard of other people going into the shop and being turned off due to attitude or lack of 'professionalism' too. To each their own. I know personally that their Cambridge store is going through some issues - heard of flooding, etc., and I know they are moving buildings as a resultt (I think, haven't been over the river to Cambridge in awhile). It sucks to hear from two of the guys on here that they've had issues, but @jstrath406 honestly I'm just glad you got your stuff back. I've bought stuff online from them and had little to no email confirmation/shipping confirmation, but my order has always arrived usually the next day since I'm local too. It's frustrating that they don't have great phone/email coverage, I certainly agree. I tend to buy my JE from The Tannery now as they have more in-store, will often give you a good deal, and usually have more sizes.
