    Tough to say no to skittles for $120. A little too backstreet boys for me so I'll be bleaching them

    That's true.

    Some people can't handle harsh criticism from others without ignorance. "So what" before you even really think just LOL.

    The fact remains, if he buys that much of the same shit with different colors DOES SHOW HE DOES LACK OVERALL CREATIVITY.

    PERIOD

    RegisDB9 is a guy who buys a lot of different things of the same brand and ONLY buys that brand. At least he's creative enough to not classify himself as one dimensional and boring by buying the same type with exact same details in different colors.

    Now to the guy who bought those same boring JE items, had to get each color of the same thing...works for him? Great. Good for him.

    YAWN

    Boring or not man, if I could afford it, I'd wear flash dual zips and escobars all day, everyday. [​IMG] Switch things up by having a good variety of nice colours to keep things fresh, I'd get the raglan raw edge hoodies for the pullover look as I like them the best out of the pullover hoodies, but that's just what I like. I don't have the money or a real love of all the colours out to buy one in every colour personally. I'd be more inclined to buy doubles of the ones i really loved.

    I have 2 x raglan raw edge pullovers, 1 x black, 1 x alpine.
    2 x dual zip hoodies, 1 x dark navy, 1 x dark grey.
    6 x pairs of Escobar's, 1 x dark navy, 1 x dark grey. 1 x brown, 1 x alpine, 1 x black, 1 x olive.

    Getting the clothes is one thing it's the shippping and tax when it lands the other side of the ocean is a different story.

    Regarding the skittles that's a great price no doubt, this is my first pair of je denim, I'll reserve my judgement on if the wash looks too "backstreet boys" [​IMG] until I get to see them in person, we will see if it is too much or if it looks good, the subtle colours may actually work well to stop the white denim from looking dirty really quick/easy, from what I can tell in the up close shots anyway. Im looking forward to seeing your bleached results though for sure..

    I also think it's hilarious that Holt Renfrew tried to retail these for $675. Like even at a 1.40 exchange rate, that's still only around $550 CAD. Idiots.

    Holt's pricing has always been a huge joke.

    Not as big of a joke as you. Do us all a favour and stop talking.

    @nsubrmnn Mr.P black denim came in and your review was spot on compared to the acnes. I will be keeping them because they are super nice. For anyone that doesn't have washed black denim... scoop these up for sure.

    Maroon flannel also arrived... solid piece! Went with a small, medium would have worked as welll.

    Grey raw edge hoodie also arrived and not really a fan. I like the black one a lot more so will be getting rid of grey.

    Is the dark grey raw edge a different texture terry and a tighter fit when compared to the black terry? My dark grey dual flash is, I don't like it, reminds me of cigarette ash. [​IMG][​IMG]

    yes i believe it is the same. Interesting point because it does feel slightly tighter and almost shorter than my black. I'll try and compare again over the weekend

    Sorry I edited my post to make it more understandable, but you managed to understand me anyway [​IMG] Yeah my dark grey flash dual zip and Escobars, both fit tighter and shorter than any of my other colours, although being the same size, the colour in person is completely different without the filters, I really don't like it. Thank you for the confirmation.

    Anyone else having issues checking out on the cntrbndshop?

    You guys think having the neros and the Mr. P carbon black is overkill? I have both and debating on if i should keep one or both. Thanks
