    got some hands on time w coat #15. here are some comments

    the coat is fire. however im not immediately in love with it (yet). compared to other JJVE pieces this one fits a little bigger than i'm usually comfortable with. i have a small asian frame; it might be that it's just not as flattering on me because it's a bit long and i already have short legs.

    otherwise, it's a beautiful, well-made coat. the fabric is dope. it's a very structured/substantial weave but still manages to feel really airy. very voluminous and drapey. feels really good to wear and is wonderful in motion.

    Looking best there with sleeves rolled and worn open - personally think this coat always shines most when worn open.

    It's suddenly hot and now I have epic regret not buying the voile 3/4 sleeve shirt from Calculs. Has anybody seen an L (or XL) anywhere else?
    Where's Suspension Points orders? I know they usually take a while to get stuff online but I feel like it's usually sooner than this?

    'tis honestly the most epic JJVE shirt i've ever bought [by that i mean both for the store, and myself].

    if you can find it don't hesitate and just jump on the fucking thing - absolutely fantastic on its own, or under a coat [wear mine under the hooded trench from this season or on its own with the same trousers & sneaks i styled it with on the website / on instagram].

    the voile fabric is unbelievable, just wore mine on my recent LA tattoo trip in 29 degree celsius weather with zero sweat issues - perfect weight / breathability for proper summer wear.

    Can you get another one?
    I always end up hesitating on JJVE and I have no fucking idea why. There's no L's on solarshop either.

    @mts0710
    How did you find out Lantiki had one if it's not online?
    And does anybody feel like proxying from DSMNY for me? I live upstate.

    picked up SP’s last two ramie shirts (shirt #43). they’re freakin sick. i’ve never handled ramie before and honestly did not know what to expect. these are some of my fav pieces now.

    it was 80~ in nyc today so decided to give it a try. super comfortable and soft to the touch. kept me cool throughout the day. laid back and relaxed design and silhouette. so beautifully cut, loose, and drapey without being too challenging to wear. if you can find one in your size and want to try wearing looser shirts but don't know where to start, these are a great way to start. highly recommend
