post #9436 of 32667

Hope there will be enough of the Charcoal Villain hoodies online so I can cop one. I'm in the UK and have been hoping they eventually come out so I can place a big order all at once. 

 

Also on my list are the Mercer tees in co-mix grey and olive.

Has anyone sized down in shirts? I wear an M in villains and it's perfect; I couldn't work with a small. I prefer my silk blend in M as well as it doesn't naturally drape like the regular shirts. However, I don't prefer the elongated look as much, and I have a couple crew shirts in medium which honestly fit good, but I wouldn't mind them being just slightly shorter. It looks fine, but I prefer my shirts to be a little shorter than that. I wanted to place a large order, but being in Canada, exchanges are out of the question so I was hoping someone could steer me in the right direction. I checked out measurements on the site and the variance doesn't seem too significant. I'm 5'10", 170ish. Is a small reasonable if that's the look I'd prefer? Obviously I don't want anything too tight or small, but there's give in my medium shirts and the small is only an inch shorter so I'm thinking it should be good.

Also, do the co-mix shirts have the same drapey feel and relaxed fit as the other regular shirts? I find the silk blend to differ in fit from the basic shirts.

Sorry for a sizing related question; much appreciated to whomever can chime in. Thanks a lot.

I love the charcoal colorway but with my experience I have found that the color really "bleeds" when you wash it (I've handwashed my long sleeve u-neck once) and the color on the chest looks slightly lighter now than the arms. LOL. Oh well, maybe I did something wrong?

The Co-Mix is a slightly heavier knit and feels and drapes differently than our other tees. I would be a little concerned with the fit of a small on you. The length is not an issue at 5'10" but the chest and shoulder are probably going to be at 170 lbs. Unless you want a tight look, I would generally advise to stick to a medium at your height / weight.

Very nice smile.gif

 

Glad to see it's more of a Light Grey vs. Off-White. Will grab a Mercer and Crew.

How is the sizing of the Hooded Rebel Longsleeve compared to the hooded villain? The measurements are larger in the chest on JE's website. Size down from the villain?

Definitely picking up the Charcoal Villain! I'm contemplating the Midnight Blue Escobars, however, I am unsure of which size to purchase as this will be my first Escobar pick up. I'm 5'5'' 145lbs.

Thanks for the insight. I figured the chest and shoulder could be an issue. Like I said, I definitely have some give in the medium, but I certainly don't want a tight fit in those areas. I'm fairly confident a small would work based on how the medium fits, but you're right in that a medium is probably ideal for my size. I wish an option for international exchanges was still a possibility (at my expense, understandably) but I get that it's not exactly feasible. Thanks again for your help; appreciate the quick response and suggestion.

Thank you! I was just about to ask for a comparison shot. Moon looks awesome.

Picked it up today. Detail is amazing

Went with a small when I normally wear Medium.

A bit snug but fits good. Wanted it so I can layer with my rider jacket

can you show a pic of how it fits? preferably compared to the hooded villain? thanks.

@JohnElliottCo Is the grey 41 overshirt (or some new colours) ever getting a restock or has it been effectively replaced by the snap overshirt?
