JR Smith got that cropped jacket with a long tee underneath. I knew JE would put him through to the finals haha

 

edit: and on to the win although i think his look was a bit weak

Lol.. All I can do is laugh at this statement 🙈

The YKK zippers just don't do it for me anymore though, JEs got me soiled with the riris -.-
Anyways, $995 for the FoG is mad pricey, but if you buy a legit piece, you'll be beating it to death for the next several years without wanting to/having the urge to upgrade.
Fire bro, I'm happy with my purchase. I tried on the JE Bomber today I'll cop the dune later, but my FOG will be worn for years and years. People call it basic, but shit is classic, everyone is trying to copy it and fail.

I agree. It's the details and the overall fit. People knock it since it has the fog name attached to it.

Happy for JE and all the well deserved press and success he's getting. I tried the bomber today though and while the cut is ok, it was way too light. After seeing what AA sells for under a bill, I don't think I could justify more than $1 or 200 bucks on the JE.  There's an incredible difference when you first put on the bomber after years of wearing Rick / Drkshdw bombers and even the FOG one which at least feels thick and has some cool arm and waist cutting going on. I honestly thought I was putting on a kids jacket. The shorts are also not bad, but again, even compared to something like FOG you can see where they fall way short. The Rider jacket looks good on John and in the runway but i'm a bit weary to be honest moving forward. BTW Coast Cast is on sale at AmRag for $75 off.

I'm right there with you. 

Anyway it doesn't matter. It's his money and he's happy, that's what matters.

Hey guys new to SF, I am considering a pair of Escobars but just not sure how they fit. The only similar sweats I've had are the RF bleeckers, which I had in a small and were still a little to baggy. Think I will be fine in a small in the Escobars?

I think you are mistaken. Optima actually has one, I'm just a fan from afar (I will get one if I can find a stone or olive at retail). As for the JE bomber, ordered rhe midnight. Let's see how it is. Most of my jackets are cheap so hopefully the quality is better than those.

I get what you're saying, but it's a light spring jacket so I'm not sure that's a valid criticism. My Our Legacy buttoned shirts feel much more substantial than my DvN shirts. The DvN are still nicer. I do think it's overpriced by about $100, but who else makes a jacket that light that looks that good? My only complaint about the JE bomber is the poofiness right behind the shoulders.
