Would also be down for a basic all black revised Cast 2 cut!

I'd actually be down for a slightly worn / faded black pair with no distressing on the knee or hem. Something washed but still a true black, unike the zincs. I feel like it's a lot easier to find a good clean black pair than it is finding a nicely faded one.

Does anyone have any recommendations for a very thin white hoodie? Mainly looking to use it for layering underneath jackets and particularly bombers. I have not seen JE release anything like this - perhaps in ss17. White kake is not the type I'm looking for as it is too thick. This would also preferably not have a zipper up the middle but that's reconcilable. Any kind of really thin hoodie would be awesome for JE to release. It would be something different and great for layering under jackets that may already be too warm. More comfortable as well especially on the arms, the regular thick terry from JE isn't optimal in this regard

That would be the carbon wash.

Imagine if JE came out with a "washed" vibe off-white/white OS cropped hoodie last season.  That would have been dope considering the texture of that hoodie.

Clay is kind of off-white?

True, Clay can be considered an off-whitish feel...so I guess a more white would have been cool.

Indeed man. I bet they will drop a white one in SS17 but I'm really just hoping for a very thin white layering hoodie right nowwww haha. The thickness of the os crop hoodie would work you are right in that regard, it is thinner than the regular terry.  If anyone knows of any please recommend, thanks

That seems to be kind of what I am looking for, would just be a matter of the thickness of the fabric and I'm not sure if I want the mercer style rear hem. Will check it out thx for the suggestion bra

I made an order from JE the other day, and I added the oak bogota in there just for fun, I had the intent of trying it out and most likely returning it for other items, but I was curious as to how the fabric and colour mix would work out.  The other ones were not for me as I already have a decent amount of bombers but the oak was nice enough and different enough to check it out.

 

It came in today. I'd say it looks very similar to how it looks on JE's website.  Being a nylon taffeta shell, it is pretty shiny and the colour is not so much classic OAK as it is an almost faded grey mixed with oak with a powerful sheen. I saw one poster asking about that. The ribbed tonal accents are more oak-like.

 

Overall I think it's a pretty nice jacket, it has the same lining on the inside as the iridescent bomber. It's that black checkered quilt lining that they now have dubbed Thermolite. The sleeves are a bit bigger and the fabric has more of a stiffer feel to it. It's a true to size jacket, I went with large. It fits just a bit bigger than the iridescent bomber. The ribbed collar is also bigger than the bombers from seasons past, undecided on this aspect yet as it kind of folds where it touches the neck. Not sure if I'm going to keep it though to be honest, right now I'm leaning towards returning it. Made in China as well makes it a less attractive piece albeit only slightly, the quality seems on point.

 

Will post pics later on.

My saks black bomber finally made it. I think many of you have the jacket overlooked. It's fairly nice material wise and the fit is spot on. They got rid of the shoulder puff last years bombers had.

For me, I needed a black jacket and I will get plenty of use from it as it's plain. Here are some pics (yes I'm a die hard raider fan).

It's a small. Small is true to size for me though. I think true to size works the best for this jacket.
