    I'm not sure what this other brand is about but there is a market for je tees in a shorter length. It's a line je should think about adding.

    Try calling Holt Renfrew (Bloor St. location) in Toronto, Canada. They had a full size run of the surplus thumper just last week.

    JE isn't the first thing that comes up when you search u neck (it might be for you because google personalizes search results and knows you've gone to JE before). Many brands were making u necks before JE (and calling them as such), like Balmain (who also truly invented the side-zip hoodie).

    I don't doubt they made the term known to a lot of people who had never heard of it before, but it's silly to think that detracts from a brand that's also using it.

    Ok ok, so maybe he didn't make them, but what JE did for the u neck and the side zip hoodie is like what Kanye did for Taylor... he made that ish famous

    Thanks. Clearly L is almost leggings, but I wasn't sure how much they stretch. The XL fits tight but comfortable with some room around the knees and thighs. Hopefully they don't stretch too much.

    What I liked about the L was the length. I'm 6"2 and I feel that the length on the L is perfect. Curious to see what other tall people think

    Haha no. He exposed a certain demographic to these styles, many of whom had been content with Stussy plush hoodies and box-fit t-shirts prior to.

    Definitely what hype said. I like JE stuff but the idea among some people in here that he created everything is ridiculous.

    And Kanye didn't make Taylor famous, she already had her own following (probably mainly teen girls lol). He only exposed her to his followers, people who listen to rap. I doubt many of those people are buying her albums.

    Roden will be getting the blackmeans collab. Pretty sure you can pre order as well. Ask for my boy Kyle B if you do.

    Whoa. Shout out to JE for hooking me up with a washed classic crew. Funny thing is I've actually been wanting to order this exact tee for a while. Thanks guys!

    Do they bogota jackets have that boxy slightly oversized classic bomber fit, or are they more slim fitting? From pics that appear slightly puffy.

    It's less boxy than before. The shoulders don't pop out really and it's a bit more tapered through the body

    I bought a grey JE wool bomber from one of the guys involved with Uniform LA on Grailed and he sent me a free tee. It's nice. Same fabric composition (50% supima cotton, 50% micro modal) as JE. For $35 it's a really nice tee. I'm trying to stay away from 50/50 tees because the bottom hem stretches out so much though - only cotton/poly mixes from now on.

    Unrelated, but anybody wash their skittles in the washing machine? I'm sketched out that the colors will run together but I don't want to deal with the hassle/expense of dry cleaning.

    Why do you need to clean them? If they aren't dirty and you just want to get the smell out or try to decrease some of the stretch, try throwing them in the dryer. If they just smell you could put them in a zip lock and throw them in the freezer. Otherwise just dry clean them.

    That's pretty dope. Nice to see that JE has stayed grounded and still connects with fans in a meaningful way despite the fact that they have recently exploded and could just as easily not do this kind of stuff.

    Just dry clean them, don't be lay-z. Or cheap. You already dropped bank on the jeans.

    For those that have handled the main line rider and the pitch black, do you have a preference? I kind of like the all black look but anyone else have an opinion?
