post #5521 of 25702

Hello,

So my buddy has been bugging me to try out John Elliott Co and I finally did and took advantage of some of the Black Friday deals that ran on the site.  Picked up a Mercer Tee, Pitch Black Villain and some the Cast/Cobalt Jeans (Indigo Raw) and need an opinion on how they fit. This is also my first pair of selvedge denim and it's stiffer than what i'm used to but pretty comfy.  What I'm worried about is that they're too skinny on the leg it kinda rides up and stacks up to the knee.  I'm 6'0 220 with bigger thighs/seat.  I have no clue how these jeans are supposed to fit and any help would be appreciated!

They look perfect to me. Keep in mind that the thighs and waist will stretch, and the denim will soften which will make the stacks settle down near your ankles over time.

Look good to me too. They should be tight at first. They will take a little while to soften and stretch but it is best they are tight initially.

Just got my new mercers. Maybe it's the material but I feel like the neck is not as opened as the previous ones I own. Or maybe my others just stretched out. Def like this way better.

Does anybody else feel like an addict when it comes to buying JE+ clothing? 75% of the items I bought still have tags which I haven't worn yet but I get the impulse to buy anything new or when there is a really hot deal.

Hi,

New Canadian member here, just received my first JE purchase (Black Alma) from Atrium. Looks great and fits comfortable. Little pricier than my usual apparel purchase but I think the quality, cutting, and style justify the price.

Also received a shipping notice for my Pitch Black Villain preorder. Can't wait!

 

I have a question for JE: will the clash crew ever be restocked? Also aside from color/style what's the difference between escobar, alma, and lima? Thanks.

The Clash will be available in White, Black, and Heather Grey for SS 15.

The Alma has 3 Riri zippers and mesh panels below the knee. The (Shadow) Lima and Escobar fit almost the same. They are similar, but the Escobar has style lines at the knee, and the Lima is constructed from two panels. The Grey Duo and Black Duo Lima sweats are from SS14, and fit about a full size bigger than the Alma, Escobar, and (Shadow) Lima.

Thanks guys! I'm very happy with them. Tried my Mercer Tee on but the neck was a little loose and didn't really fit. Will sizing down fix that problem you think?

DANG, really bummed I missed out on the charcoal Clash Crew.

 

If anyone is selling theirs, or doesn't want it anymore, please hit me up. I'd gladly take it off your hands.
