    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.

    They aren't baggy, just how the fabric is. You can actually just squeeze the arms and they will slim down. Fabric is like foil where it molds.


    It's not light at all but I don't know how warm it will be. Again the fabric is something I never seen before.

    Hardly tight at all. It's about the same size as my flight jacket but you can mold this jacket to how you want it to fit.

    Washed black from last season. Color wise last season works well with most of this season too.

    Just tried JE's wool/cotton blend sweats. Very unique fabrication and look.
    Paired with the raglan raw edge crew:

    Unfortunately I'd have to agree. Sorta like boucle sweats but the boucle is much, much nicer IMO

    I think boucle is nicer too but we it's hard to tell what the fabric looks like in those pics.

    Regardless I'm not interested in sweats anyway. Would like to see sweaters soon

    Got the thumper in today. Material is crazy - really cool texture, although in classic John Elliott fashion the color in the model shots isn't very accurate. Definitely more of a subtle black/gray than the black with gray stripes the model shots make it out to be. There are streaks of material that reflect light which is neat. The fabric is very soft. I'm used to a classic 100% cotton trucker and this is nothing like that. Only complaint is that the buttons are basically useless as the eyelets for them are too small. Felt like I was going to rip the fabric undoing them.

    The sweats look pretty bad. I'd grab it for a really cheap price, but looks like something I wouldn't wear out of my apartment. Thanks for the pics though, nice to see new stuff before it's seen on JE's site.

    Thumper pics would be good.

    Here is a better pic of what the material really like. The jackets are all hanging and I am able to mold the sleeves around and the shape sticks

    Yeah their unique but would never get them. I was looking for half zips to try on and ended up spotting them. No luck so I had to try the raw edge stuff on for some kind of reference. Don't really own any of the oversize pieces

    Ya that fabric is so gross. Sometimes a fabric is unique because no one else has thought to try it, and sometimes it's unique because no one else wanted to try it. This falls into the latter category.

    were the boucle-looking sweats and sweaters in the lookbooks/runway show actually these gauze ones instead? I was hoping JE was bringing back the boucle gear this year

    Yea and no knock on JE for experimenting. The gray one actually looks really interesting imo. And that aluminum jacket looks insanely cool and unlike anything I've ever seen before.

    @jbidwal dang that's nuts how that jacket can do that. Love how JE experiments and comes out with very unique things. Mad jealous of your jacket collection.
