I bought the entire midnight collection (sans pants) and ended up returning the sweater because the arms are too short and I felt the shoulders were too narrow for me.

I own a ton of reigning champ gear, and I prefer reigning champ sweatshirts because of their unparalleled quality (fabric is a little heartier, seems more robust) and the fit is better suited towards my body type (5'11, 160 lbs, broad shoulders, long torso and arms). I would've had to wear my charcoal villan hoodie with the sleeves always rolled up (I wear medium in everything).

I would say try out both brands if you have the means. You might like one more than the other in terms of fit and fabric feel; at the end of the day it's personal preference.

I've worn reigning champ for 3-4 years and have never had an issue with any of their pieces, after countless washing and wear.

John Elliott t-shirts, however, are of the utmost quality and fit (I own at least 5)! The u-neck and Mercer tees fit me dead on and I would recommend them to anyone, especially those who are tall, broad shouldered, slim.

Regarding the Herringbone M65 jacket--I've had my eye on it for a while now. I own 10+ JE+Co items and love the products, and no disrespect whatsoever, but $795 seems to be pushing it for that item.  Would love to know if the price justifies the product bc it's hard to tell online.  Did anyone on this thread order that jacket?  If so, pics/comments about it?

Purchased both t-shirts from the John Elliott GQ x Gap Collection in a Size Medium. Don't need them, as I already own all 4 regular u-necks - so if you're interested (at retail price), shoot me a message or respond to this post.  

Attached a few pictures. Good work JE!

@johnelliottco - I'm definitely curious as to this also and how sizing works because the size of the large measures the same as the stadium jacket in a medium? How are we advised to size on this if u wear a large in the stadium? Also will there be a restock of the xlarge in the olive one?

@srizvi722 - I've seen this item in store but didn't get a chance to try it on - can def say it's a quality jacket as is all their items. Don't know about the price breakdown of $795 - maybe the construction put into it, the material, mother of pearl buttons, riri zippers as always ... But overall a really nice jacket

Any alternative ls pieces in the works, e.g., henleys or thermals?

If you are a large in the varsity I think you should be getting a large in the m65.

If you own 10+ pieces then you should know why. Materials and construction of a jacket is far more work. Cost of USA goods will always be more.

Or they just want to make more money and have a higher end brand image.

Tightly woven over-dyed and rinsed Japanese herringbone fabric. Mother of pearl buttons, rear-entry RiRi zippers on bottom front pockets. Shearling wool collar with Italian lambskin backing is just going to cost a lot when it's made in the USA and as a business you need to make a reasonable profit on the product.

pretty sure that's not the case, and has been expressed over and over again when people complain about the prices. If you can't afford it move on. Go buy H&M or get a lookalike from fabric square. Chances are nobody you pass by on a daily cares if you spent $795 on jacket or $79.

Have you seen how many people are trying to make a quick buck on eBay with regards to JE x Gap?

It's sad, spend the $40-80 more and get the real deal lol. It's expected though, everyone resells these days.

Yeah. I sucks for the kids who actually want it though. Reminds me of Supreme where kids camp out for a day, buy 10 t-shirts for $50 each and sell them for $400 each on eBay. Reminds me of Coachella too.

 

I've always been about quality rather then quantity so I'll stick to JE+C.
