    Black +j vest came in. Nicer than I expected, and fits slimmer than expected as well. Went with slim oxford size.

    Has anybody had the loose taper PBJ's and given them a decent amount of wear willing to give some feedback?
    For $80 I may as well just grab them but I'm curious how they feel and how good the taper is (the one measurement they don't put online is hem).

    Definitely nicer than expected.

    I am trying to decide if it is a bit poofy in the midsection when zipped up due to the pockets.

    Finally ordered the +j pants and another pair of the loose tapered Pure Blue Japans, plus another ULD jacket. Perfect for layering.

    @OccultaVexillum: I've been wearing mine a few times a week for a couple months and washes now and no complaints. Leg opening is 6.5" on size 31 with a decent rise.

    The top block is loose, with aggressive taper from about knee down, leg opening measures about 6'' on a size 28.

    Got a few pairs of the the +J trousers, pretty solid and cozy as heck for this LA winter. Then the jackets appeared in my size for $99 so I got the black and gray :D:D

    Thanks guys. I'm gonna grab the light wash, hoping the wash doesn't look bad in person.

    What are your opinions on +J merino and cashmere sweaters? Being an noobie, it is only this year I discovered +J. Reading up past reviews, it appears that outwear was considered the strongest part of collaborations and knits / sweaters the weakest. If one looks at the current one (or whatever remains on the website), all outwear is pretty much sold out together with suit separates, and all that remains is sweaters and shirts. Not as highly regarded? Too expensive for what you get even after 40% off?

    I have been to their store and had a chance to take a look at their merino cardigan, very lightweight almost see-though, and very light. Very very soft. I liked the dark navy and brown colors. The fit is Ok - too baggy around the waist, but most of the stuff is for me. I am interested in buying one, but I was wondering what is the SF opinion on +J sweaters? Mostly, durability, quality and value for the price. Thanks so much!

    Although, from the past experience, how quickly next round of price drops would come? Just a guess, a few weeks away or a month / two away?

    I can't tell you about the shirts, maybe fabric is nicer? I might stay away from the really thin ones because they'll probably tear plus the standard efm is great.

    Probably in a couple more weeks or so they'll drop.

    Got those "loose" tapered PBJ's and they aren't loose at all haha.
    I went down 1 to a 33 based on the measurements and they are all off by .5-1".
    Waist is fine, but the thigh is skin tight and the top block is not loose.
    I'm probably going to return and size up 1 to a 35 but I'm still not sold they will be this mythical perfect fit everybody online is touting them as. Should prolly just buy some Somet's.
