    Longevity...not long. There's too much going on, it would be better without the patches. I also don't like that it is a type 2 denim jacket.

    It is interesting that JE has switched up the style of the thumper jacket over the years. The og mica iteration was more of a type 1 with the knife pleats in the front with only 1 pocket and the back of a type 3 with the waist straps/cinch without pleats in the back. the season ten is a more of a type 2 from the front (two chest pockets with knife pleats), not sure what the back looks like but I'm assuming it's like a type 3. and the current is somewhat of a modified type 1 in the front ( low chest pocket without the knife pleats) and a type 3 in the back. I wonder if they will just make a straight up type 3 jacket?

    Coba aren't mine. I just gave an opinion. As for slp, I still think they are the best. Prob not for long though with the changes they are making.

    I was laughing at this ish all day, guess you think all brown people look alike...lol

    Anyway man, I wouldn't not buy them because of my pics. Some of the previous posts of them were good. I just don't think they work on me or maybe the pair was tagged incorrectly or this wash fits tighter l, I don't know.
    I do hate the seams on the light colored JE denim, it really messes with the aesthetic of the jeans.
    Hopefully they come out with some more basic/ clean denim this season, it is called watching water.
    I guess JEs new black denim wouldn't be horrible but I have prob too many black pairs of denim in my rotation currently.

    Sizing on co-mix oversized hoodie? Medium in kake, large in villain. I think a medium is the correct size but wanted to double check before I start my search. Really wish I would've picked this up from Barneys during their sale.

    Recently took a pair of apc's to the tailor and gave them a JE size chart. Jeans came out perfect might end up having a couple other non-JE denim done too.

    I'd say grab a medium, if you're already a medium in the kake

    Same as your kake.

    Custom fit jeans is the way to go.

    Wondering if anyone has washed their pair of skittles denim? Does it make them more white and fade the colouring more?

    What are you guys tapering the denim down to? I've got some zincs that I've been meaning to get tapered but not sure how much I should do. Also, if I recall correctly, Mike from JE said it was possible to shorten the sashiko belt, has anyone attempted? I wear mine almost daily but it's way too big, even for the intended kind of hanging fit. I want to try to shorten it but not sure how I would go about doing it.

    I've washed mine many times. The colouring hasn't changed or faded, it seems like the dye they used was already washed in. I think Mike mentioned this earlier, but the color is very hard to notice unless people are up in your business

    Bingo! Really want this piece, however I can't see myself spending over 500 on it if it's that much. No clue what the price will be though. I have no expectations on the technical quality of the piece, but I hope it has something to offer on that front (waterproof/taped seams/etc..)

    Anyone have a guess?

    My guess is $325, which is already overpriced imo

    Shouldn't be much more than the fishtail raincoat, but won't be shocked if it is. Its similar to the colour block jkt that girl is wearing in lookbook so I'm going to decide which one I want more as I can't get both - too similar. In terms of the actual features, don't expect much. If it's like the fishtail raincoat (looks like same material) it's more of a fashion jacket, extremely thin material that is probably technically water resistant - but in reality its not - too thin. Good looking light jacket with some windbreaking ability and nice for the spring/summer/fall. Can layer with it since it's so thin
