BTW i wear a 28 in the APC petit standard and 29 in JE cast 2, prob could do 28 but they are too tight from the get go. 

Thanks. Just compared my Apc size 29 PNS to the cast Raws size 29 and the thigh area on the JE seems a lot tighter. Wider in the waist:

PNS- 14.5-15
JE -16

Apc thigh - 11"
JE thigh - 9"

Apc leg opening - 6.5
JE leg opening - 7

Just a FYI for anyone with sizing question.

Most of the Gap x GQ stuff is out now at the Gap store 5th and 17th in Manhattan. They said they were getting more items later. It looked like they had all the John Elliott stuff with the exception of the black denim.  Here's what I thought:

 

The biggest surprise was the backpack. I didn't look to closely at it online because I don't need it. It's really nice. I'd say more off-white than white in real life which is nice for winter. Really heavy industrial metal buckles on the straps. Laptop pocket and plenty of practical padding in the back and straps. Probably the best item in the collection from JE.

 

The fit on the Escobars is great if you size down one from mainline escobars.  I wear a large in Escobars normally. I tried on small and medium. The medium Gap fit seemed almost identical to the mainline large. I'll have to get these home and compare them side by side with the Alpine escobars I just bought to be able to give a full comparison. Drawstrings seemed identical. Fit seems almost identical. I think the french terry might be thinner.

 

Zip and cropped hoodie were disappointing to me. Thin material. Not a great fit on me. Zippers also appear really cheap. Almost plastic-y. I don't care about this on the escobar pocket, but a zipper is the main feature of a hoodie.  If you still want to try it, I'd recommend sizing down on the cropped hoodie (which will still give you an oversized fit) and sizing tts on the zip hoodie.

 

Other observations: 
Rider jacket seemed ok. I didn't look too closely since it's not my style. Leather seemed mid-grade to me.
Michael Bastian ski jacket was not for me but nice. Sales reps said it was really popular.

So when you say the cropped hoodie was thin/disappointing, is that in comparison to the regular JE Oversized Cropped hoodie or just in general? Because that hoodie already is thin as hell and not fantastic quality, I can't imagine it being much thinner. If it's actually the same or very similar to the washed black JE one I may just grab one for the hell of it on discount.

It's thinner compared to the mainline Kake and Escobars. I haven't seen a season 7/8 JE cropped hoodie IRL so I can't compare to that.

Also, I didn't look closely enough at the tees to be able to give a good description.

the gap stuff may seem like a good deal but if you're patient enough you can get barely used real JE stuff for almost the same price that you're paying for the Gap quality JE..

Got all the Gap shit in. Def size down 1 in escos. I'd say they are almost exact cut just one size up in reg JE. 

 

Dual zips are great for the price. Clay is nice. Size down 1.

 

Rider needed to be sized down so i'm sending it back. IMHO it's not that bad. Leather is super soft, cut is nice (if sized down). Could be worth it if you wanna save a G and your'e not an arrogant fuck.

 

Backpack is a little grade school for me but it's nice too. Simple.

 

Layered t's get delivered tomorrow.

Pics on the leather jacket...

I have a different opinion. The cut sucks and materials are meh city.

Spend a couple of bucks more and get real JE.

Ya, they're way too long. I'm also 5'8. Thats what's making me send it back. 

 

No RiRi zips.

Something else I just noticed: the medium Gap Escobars are 4 inches shorter than the large JE Escobars. Also the Gap version has cloth pockets where the JE are the same French terry as the rest of the pant.
