    Some fit pics of the Medium (5'9" 160lbs). Fully zipped for maximum sausage-ification (ignore post-run hair please)

    That doesn't look horrible but I think a size up would definitely be better, totally see why you wouldn't keep it.

    Also, there's no way somebody 5'9" and 170 lbs is a small in any brand but old navy. I'm 6' and 175 and I'm usually a L.

    I guess I'll comment on sizing now that I also got mine. Ordered the burgundy villain in L and like others have said it is a slim hoodie. However I actually like the slimness of it and if its anything like my villain pullover, will most likely stretch a little to a comfy fit. For reference I'm 6'2" and 180

    I agree. The reason I gave this brand a try was their terrific fits. I now own several pieces from them including a grey hooded Villain which arrived today. Let me begin by saying that the quality of this garment for the price (SF Discount Included) is amazing. I am 6'1 190 I ordered a XL and its perfect! I love how the sleeves are slim. I hate W+H or Balmain's baggy sleeves. The more you wear those hoodies the more they stretch. This will most likely strech a bit but I am confident that it will never look sloppy like my W+H or Balmain hoodies now look.

    And the hidden pocket is amazing. I just showed this to my brother in law - blew his mind. "Has that been done before?"

    With brands like this I think you have to realize that they have a point of view. There fits are slim yes but they are that way for a reason!

    I'm a L in most other things and prefer a slimmer fit.

    this was very slim through chest and skin tight around forearms, and I don't even have particularly big arms. 6-3, 215, 44 jacket for ref.

    It fights quite a bit tighter than it looks in that photo. I think the thickness of the material contributes to it not looking so bad but the arms are crazy tight and definitely uncomfortable (I cant even imagine if I had arms like some of you guys out there)

    Hey guys - first, thanks for the business and all the feedback in sizing.

    From a design standpoint, these are cut to be high and tight. The terry fabric will stretch, and the tightness in the arm combined with the heft of the terry will create stacking and creases with wear. We are trying to do something a little bit different than the traditional, loose hoodie, and with wear, the hoodie should conform to your body, loosen, and be really comfortable. Not to negate anyone's personal size preference, or to say that the sizing isn't off for some of you or just too tight, but the cut is our intention.

    The below pictures are the fit as intended, if that helps inform anyone...

    Again, thanks and feel free to shoot me a pm or email if you have any questions.

    Ha ha, not sure what to tell you. I wear a small in just about everything, extra small in some outerwear, depending on the brand, 36 jacket. Nothing skin-tight either.

    those look really tight on the calves. I want a pair but that part worries me a bit. every pair of jeans I have is painted onto my calves at 6.25 hem and 28-29 waist.

    ^I'm the same size and I actually hope the small fits a bit tighter on the calves like that. Too many "fitted" sweatpants end up looking super baggy on me.

    i have a pair of slim fitting nike sportswear sweats and they've stretched out considerably in the body, at least a size; french terry as well. i'd assume it would be the same for the escobars

    Yeah. I really wish we'd be able to get some measurements for the escobar, but like the guy said, this fabric will stretch. 3 days of regular wear and the villain hoody already fits looser.
    I'm planning on the grey duo and the black. Black Villain + Black Escobar + All Black Achilles AND THEN I WILL BE A NINJA!

    Can we get a rough guide to sizing for the escobar sweats? Like should a 32 waist be a M or L, etc?

    Very excited about the direction of this brand.

    Guaranteed to pick up a Cast in Carbon. Though I'm wondering if there is a big enough difference between the Nimbus and Coast to pick up both?
    A Villain will be essential this winter.

    Next spring tho, WOW :eek: . John should just take my money now. The S/S Hoodie with a hanging drawstring, good lord! and the coated denim.

    i just recently found out about John Elliot & Co....very interested in what i see on the site, especially the escobar sweats! how often do items get restocked typically? i know they aren't for sale yet but i imagine they will sell out very quickly...just curious in case i miss out on the launch.

    Escobar Sweats will go online Saturday at 9AM PST. We will update our sizing info on them and try to give a detailed description of our intended fit and size scales.
