Hmm. Maybe me too. TTS is a nice fit, but I can see how looser might be better.

Some cozy LEJ while we catch up on these orders. View attachment 1713092
What sizes did you grab on both of those pieces? I have the jacket in my TTS (XL) and am eyeing those pants, although XL is OOS. I think I might actually prefer to size up on that (not that there's an option for XXL) rather than size down, as elasticated pants often look better bigger, and you don't need to worry much about waist size on those anyway, but wanted to check how you found them, as I think we take similar sizes.

I'm wearing an XL in the pants and wound up ordering in a XXL in the posh plage coat. XL fit well enough for an overshirt, but I wanted a bit more sleeve length cause I like how it looks with a little turn up. We might have to stock XXLs in LEJ moving forward cause this size a lot.

Yes, I’m in total agreement here. My XL fits, but I suspect I’d prefer XXL for exactly the reasons you note here. Would you choose to size up in the pants if you had the option to do so, or would you stay at XL?

Anyway, really excited for y’all to continue stocking LEJ—so happy to see it has caught on, given that I wasn’t initially drawn to it myself—and to (hopefully) add XXL in future buys!

Nahh, the pants in XL are perfect for me. I can swing an L but the waist feels good and the volume is plenty in the XL. I’m normally between 34/36 for reference

How do the shetlands fit? At 165 that’s a killer price point, I don’t like em too blousy just because of the brushed cloth
