    You mised out on the extended length so the ones they have are normal length. I personally find the sleeves a bit too wide for my liking. I still have some though. Been debating getting the sleeves altered to be more slim.

    Yeah, only long long sleeves I own are button ups and some of my knits, especially the Jil and Ervell knits, are super itchy, so I'm looking for long sleeves that would work for that, I'm assuming the long sleeves are the same weight and fabric as the short sleeves? Tanks I would just use for summer I guess, what is the difference with the old scar tank and the mercer tank?

    edit: Wide sleeves are very necessary for me, one of the things I like about JE tee's is they aren't stupid slim in the sleeves so my XL's don't look like smediums.

    Same fabric. The cut is the main difference. One is the u style the other is the split hem. I find the sleeves to be too wide by the forearm and wrist area. The upper arm is fine.

    From product photos the color looks slightly lighter than the Dark Grey, but not different enough to warrant a purchase IMO. I'm hoping a restock of the original Grey is coming along soon so I can give my Dark Grey Villain some rest.

    Mix Grey was disappointing. I returned my Kitos because of the mix grey color.

    Agreed. Mix grey is nice, but compared to the other greys JE has released, it's the worst. I held onto my mix grey villain to use as a beater bc at the end of the day, grey is always awesome.

    for those of you who wear the JE tees regularly or daily, how long have they lasted you? do the seams begin to de-thread after a while? Im debating whether to go all in on the tees or not, and seeing whether itd be worth the steep price.

    They are worth it, quality and fit are great.

    Silk blend>CoMix>Regular.

    Only issues I've had with T's is tearing at the back of the neck with the label is sewn in. All of my T's are from the first run, so they are all old-ish to begin with, and they've added reinforcement elsewhere so I assume they've done so with the tags as well.

    Not specifically you, but yeah you included but I've also seen worse on here than your story. People just being bratty man. Almost like JE is too nice sometimes.

    Yeah I meant in General, but your post triggered it, especially since you received the hoodie as a gift and expect JE to fix the problem or send you another.. Not sure what you want them to do for you.
