I think this is the most accurate way to describe it lol

Thanks for the detailed pics man.... I actually think that stuff doesn't look half bad. I'm still so on the fence about copping. I think if I do, I'm just gonna cop some terry to wear at the gym so I can keep my real JE terry out of the gym haha. Maybe a tee too.. even if it's a bit lower quality it's always nice to hvae some variation in tees

The terry on the hoodie is actually pretty nice, not thin like mentioned before by someone on here. Zippers are cheap but they work just fine. The tees are okay, a bit thicker than regular JE tees, though not as soft. Fits looser than regular JE, but not "boxy." Backpack is cool. I like the color and the hardware is nice too. It's a backpack. Can't go wrong.

5'10, 140, size small tee + hoodie. (I'm in between small and medium for JE shirts, true small on JE hoodies)

Two main pockets, one for laptops/notebooks, other for main storage

 

 

 

 

Mesh backing and metal hardware on the back, very comfortable/sturdy

I am 6'1 185-190 and the medium works well for me.

Thanks for the review. I am sure many others in addition to myself appreciate you taking the time to do it.

 

However, given those numbers, you should definitely be wearing a large...

Definite pass on the bomber.  Also I'm really not a fan of those thermal sweaters... agree that the fit just seems OFF.  Personally I like last year's thermal stuff better, but I know dmill has a difference of opinion on this. (and they weren't sweaters).

 

The GAP stuff, again, I think looks like garbage.. but good for a grade 7 or 8 or HS'er going back to school and wanting a cheap wardrobe? At the end of the day, what people say on here doesn't matter and if you're happy with it then more power to you

 

BOUCLE SEASON BOYS.... some stuff worth copping. I bought the black ones last Fall, hoping to pick up some grey ones this time around.  I wonder if they will be the same cut and same ones as FW15.....

not defending the gap stuff bc I personally wouldn't buy it, but it really doesn't look like garbage.

Definitely doesn't look as terrible in the pics as ppl make it seem. Can't speak to the fabric though, but fits don't look half bad imo!

Looks like the releases are getting better

I know I've probably posted this before, but boucle sweatpants are probably the only item after the surplus thumper that's a must cop *so far* from this season

Agree with leflop, excited to grab onto the grey this season. New season kind of looks a little oversized from the IG pic with more room in the crutch but same taper. But idk.
