    For layering, sure stay with a medium, but for actual hoody day to day use size up 1.

    For a layering piece I would go more with the crewneck version

    I mean using the hoody as a top layer rather than layering it underneath something. What size are you?

    I know what you mean. M in everything and size up on the villian hoody for a more hoody day to day feel. But that's just me.

    It's the length that bothers me tbh - over 29" for a large!

    Didn't you just say you wanted the u neck and/or mercer too? Both of those have elongated hems anyway.

    Yeah I do and I want the hoody to be considerably shorter - correct me if I'm wrong but the model wears
    Villain and a large Mercer?

    WRT fit, this is is the look i'm after size wise...[​IMG]

    that's how my villain crew size L fits me. almost tight in the shoulders and arms and very similar length, which I think is a little too short if you dont wear a long tee or tank under.

    p.s. this is not JE hoodie on the photo.

    I dunno. I have XL in both the villain and u neck and layering is good, but I can't see there much of an issue if I'd size down on the shirt (or up with the hoody) so the u neck was a size smaller. The u neck isn't as fitted as the villain is so I think you'd be fine. Nail the fit of the hoody, the other pieces shouldn't be an issue imo.

    I know; the hoody is Balmain from two seasons ago but they're sizing pretty similar according to Mr Porter, which measures things very accurately.

    Would really benefit from a fit pic from someone around my size. To me ( I could be wrong) but Kanye's looks tighter than the JE one the model wears on site.

    I've heard there is quite a lot of give/stretching on the villain after a few wears.

    The shirts already run longer than the hoody length wise. Like I said I don't view the hoody as a layering piece because it's more day to day so I've never thought about like that. U should be fine sizing up 1 or just staying true. True will just be snug at first.


    @JohnElliottCo is the blue jacket still dropping?

    The blue jacket is dropping, but not until July / August.
