The outline of the hem is fine. But that ~2 inch panel that follows on the back of the shirt does not look good IMO.

They just seem more dramatic/longer than the one on the 41 overshirt, don't get me wrong, I do see the hem on my 41 overshirt, but the denim ones seem cut longer.

Yeah, if I'm being honest..the Indigo shirt is a nice to have, but not a need to have.  To me the pockets/buttons used look like a standard western style shirt.  I've kinda been there done that.  The hemline is starting to become ubiquitous in JE designs...I'm personally looking for timeless pieces that are more traditional but with an awesome fit.  1-2 shirts with a unique hemline is okay, but I just don't want several shirts in my wardrobe that require layering and really need to be worn unbuttoned to look good. Still wear JE as my go to brand; just sharing feedback.

I like the little distressed detail on the denim shirts.

Anyone know when the net/mesh tank is due to release?

post #8782 of 25391

Let's just say the 41 over shirt runs small, I'm 5'10 and got a medium and it's a really tight fit, if I try to swing my arms or anything crazy I feel like it'll rip.

I'm pretty lean/skinny, 160 pounds, 6'1 and I take a medium in the overshirt. Fits perfect

I'm 5'8 165-170 and I got a M in the over shirt. You straight, button up or opened.

There's a lot of shit that just looks weird now, and seem to be an attempt to be "different" rather than actually being good.

Like others said, that double hem on the denim shirts looks awkward (I actually don't mind it on the 41's though), the diagonal seam on the scar tank as well as, again, the double hem, make it something I don't want any more (I was looking forward to it when I was under the impression that it was essentially a tank top U-Neck). The hoya shorts also look pretty pointless. The unnecessary zips all over the place (rue, clash) look horrible and seem to me like something where it's just a matter of "the villain had zips and people love it, let's figure out where else we can put zips just for the hell of it).

 

Aside from the original line of stuff (flash, villain, escobars, mercers, u necks, crews) the only things that have been released since then that I truly like are the varsity/stadium jacket, court short, kito, villain crew and short sleeve rebel). I like the denim too but it doesn't work for my body type, same for the denim jackets.

 

I realize my opinions ultimately don't matter and most people will just say that I'm "hating", but as somebody who has been a fan of the brand since the beginning but has essentially being buying less and less (and sticking mostly to the older styles) I figured I would give some feedback, for whatever it's worth.

^ Thanks for the feedback, always appreciated. FYI, the Scar Tank was one of our first items, from season 1. We brought it back for SS15.

I know, I don't remember those details on it though (diagonal seam and double hem, they were always on it?) and I only noticed them on the grey (maybe that's why I never noticed them on the initial run). I'd also love to see the Riga return, that's probably the piece that I've worn the most out of everything.

And again, I'm not trying to stir shit up and look like a dick, I just figure as a brand it's always better to get constructive feedback and honest opinions and actual reasons as to why somebody doesn't like something. Not like you guys need my help, but yeah.

I don't think any of the items are trying to be too different and they certainly aren't randomly placing stuff wherever they can. Everything they've put out has served a purpose or function. I see them as toned down designer inspired basics. The Clash looks like an Undercover sweater without any branding / logos and better materials, The diagonal seams have been around for a long time, way before Rick Owens and Boris Bidjan Saberi.

I agree with you on the Riga. That was a really awesome design and it would be cool if they brought it back. The black and grey were really awesome. It's unfortunate that the burgundy body with grey sleeves never made it into production.

 

I disagree with your view of the Rue though. Adidas has been using the chest pocket for a really long time on its hoodies. As for the diagonal seam on the Scar, I am more neutral about that (it feels a little unnecessary), but the double hem is pretty sick.
