The point of collaborations are not to pump out high quality products - it's to help dying brands like GAP get some credibility while amplifying known designers.  And that's the reason it will be junk.  I'm not comparing this to Schott and quality / craftsmanship for their products (which are just fine if you want to look like you borrowed your dad's 1986 harley jacket).

If they have it, i will pick up some collaboration tees as beaters. None of the other stuff. You can never have enough tees.

2 totally different statements. I was quoting you regarding not being able to find a quality jacket for $600. 

 

If you haven't looked into Schott for the past decade, give it another look. They put out really nice updated/modern silhouette. Barney's has the best sellection.

I grabbed a u neck tee last time around, and it's been something I wear to the gym/around the house. Actually worth it

Can confirm that this jacket looks great.

So how much is this one going to cost? Do people like the extended tees?
post #22043 of 25339
@nsubrmnn Since the cropped sashiko tee is $300, I would imagine the extended version is around the same price/slightly more.

It was more of a rhetorical question. Just not sure what they are thinking.

what to expect from GQ x GAP x JE

Nero owners--how awesome are they? Debating going through the headache of selling my destroyed SLP denim and purchasing the Neros instead.

Stopped by the Madison Barneys. The selection was pretty small. Only 2 diff washes of jeans. Grey villain, and black and dark green kake hoodie. A few odds and ends but I was quite disappointing overall

Thinking about picking up a pair of Plumas, my first JE denim. My fear is that even the 28s won't be skinny enough. Any advice? I have chicken legs: I'm 5'10", 130 lbs. My Baseline sweats are probably the only thing in my closet that have a really solid tapered fit below the calves. And the only jeans I have that really fit well through the leg are my Acne Ace Stay Cash... even those 29 x 32s are way too long though and don't stack right. Are the JEs comparably skinny? And is there any hope of them fitting properly below the ankle or should I resign myself to getting them tailored? Thanks...

I actually wear my Acne Ace Stay Cash all the time, probably my most worn denim alongside JE. I will say they fit very similar at first, but JE stretches out much much more. Now that JE has just recently tapered the leg below the knee even further on the Cast 2 (just within the last few weeks) you may be just fine. Worst case is they stretch out and you pay $15ish to get them tapered.

Honestly, not my favorite JE denim though probably the most sought out of any I own. I own both Skittles, Plumas, OG Springs, Stretch Micas, and the Nero's. They are versatile but the blowouts are more drastic than I thought, as much as a pair of Odeons.
