    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I posted pics of the oak cake yesterday, I believe it's not the exact color of the long-sleeve but definitely has more brown than appears on the site

    They'll stretch out quite a bit. Mostly in the waist, butt and thighs. If you can size down one and button them, you'll be good. They might be tight at first but after a few wears they'll stretch. I think a lot of people on here (myself included) bought the right size up front only to have them stretch out. The thing that may restrict you from sizing down are the thigh dimensions so look at those first. Hope this helps.

    i took size 29 in strech kane, granite and canyon and also kept 29 in skittles. 28 in skittles fit in waist they were painted on my thighs. def some stretch. even 29 are really too tight int eh thighs so will have to stretch them out before i wear

    i have room in the waist in all of these. i typically take a size 30 in most pants and do a medium in the escobar and kitos (like the slightly baggier feel in sweats)

    The colors are definitely not the same...but that might be because of terry vs. cotton on the sweatshirts vs. tees?

    Don't think the drop was disappointing other than the trousers. The mercer sweater in white is pure fire a simply amazing piece IMO at a solid price. Model pics dont do it justice. As for the kake, i'm waiting on the grey one

    I got the trousers and Kake coming, hoping they work as an office type JE pant. If they are too awkward for my style I'll send 'em back and get the Mercers y'all are raving about. I guess I'm probably gonna go sz. 1 in them. I always took this size in the normal LS Mercer Tees, 2 always felt too big.

    Just got the Kake in, and the colour is identical to the L/S released earlier this year in my opinion.

    Dang..it is identical..why do I keep thinking the Oak was really dark? I haven't wore my LS oak tee in ages, so I couldn't remember the exact color..but I always remembered it being this dark:[​IMG]

    Thanks for the comparison pic though

    For those that have bought the cast 2 coast jorts, how have they held up, especially with stretching?

    They stretch as much as you'd expect JE denim to stretch in the waist / thigh area. 29 is my right JE size taking into account the stretching but I went with a 30 in the jorts cause I didn't want no skin tight shorts haha. After wear and stretch they're slightly wider around the thigh than I'd like them to be but not a major issue

    @John Elliott is there any additional planned colors of the half zip mercer hoodie? Would love a maroon one.

    Thanks man this was basically the info I needed. Really want to get a pair but wasn't sure about the stretching, etc. Thanks a ton dude!


    On another note, for those that are unsure about the charcoal co-mix specifically, it is probably the best co-mix to date. I say this because of the use of the rayon fiber that they previously used on the dark grey tees I believe. Makes the fabric feel more silky and have more of a drape effect, which I have been wanting in the co-mix fabric. The alpine colorway is nice as well, but the charcoal definitely takes the cake for me. On Saks website, they have a co-mix crew listed as olive, which is actually the alpine colorway, for those with Saks credit or Saks connects.
