    Although I have one question, about this.

    John Elliott + Co Flash Dual Fullzip


    How thin is that hoodie? I'm hoping it's really thin type of hoodie.

    Yea bro - I second that. And I am not a big clothing brand guy. JE had me at simple, quality you can feel items. Now it's getting slightly steep without any unique details.

    On another note, I went to Union LA to day and grabbed black hooded villain. I need a good "go to" black hoodie, and this looks and feels like it. I ordered the black Rue, but I don't love the side slits. I wish they were half the depth...but that's just me. Returning it and keeping the villain.

    Also, I tried on the OS Hoodie in Olive in XXL (that's all they had). It was huge and I wish i knew if i were a L or an XL. I'm an XL in the Villain, so assuming a L? Anyways, i really liked the light cloth. Perfect for LA...but should have been $50 cheaper in my opinion. You just get a much more substantial hoodie for the same price from JE. Would make sense.

    I also tried on the Flatback Thermal Shorts in black. I actually loved them. Not so much to pay $200 for lightweight shorts... but man, the L fit great and these are perfect weekenders. I would scoop up if they ever went on sale, but it's tough to stomach that much for light cotton shorts.

    Overall, i'll keep my eye out for the shorts, and I may scoop up a L OS hoodie if I can;t get my hands on a Kake Mock...

    Machine wash and hang dry on my regular JE terry and tees.
    The more expensive pieces like jackets and loopwheel, dry clean

    Never had any issues so far

    Ok thanks, good to know but I meant the material itself, is it thick or thin? cuz I want to pair with a varsity jacket that fits me nicely so therefore i need a THIN type of hoodie, not like linen thin obviously but you know?

    If you want thin, go with the recent released hoodies from SS16.
    Saw many members saying how thin it was compare to terrys from past seasons so had passed up.

    Anyone have issues with the difference in sizing between Cast 2 raw denim colors?

    I copped a size 32 in Stretch Kane, Stretch Obsidian, and Stretch Graphite. Kane and Graphite are exactly the same. Obsidian is NOTICEABLY smaller. Measurements are more like a 31.

    When considering the price of the OS, remember the living color wash process adds to the cost as well. The Washed Mercer Tee had a 35% price increase ($26) over the standard Mercer Tee, so taking that into account, a standard, unwashed OS would retail at $128 at the least, or $176 at the most.

    I won't be surprised if the oversized hoodie comes in the normal terry. Maybe as a limited item but the demand is too much for this not to happen.

    As for living color, what's supposed to happen with wear. I'm curious to see what a well worn item will end up looking like

    I would go true to size for flash dual if it's going under a varsity, because the terry does stretch a bit after multiple washes and wear. It is a thin hoodie imo.

    I used to be a part of the size up crew for villains/dual flashes but that is only because when you first try on their terry pieces they are really snug and that makes you assume to size up. But true to size is where its at.... stretches out after a few wears and conforms perfectly.

    Does it have the living color treatment? No mention of wash before wear on the product page...

    Edit: disregard if you were referring to the hoodie, I assumed you meant the tee.
