    Might just be biased but the FoG bomber looks eh, especially that fit, sorry mate. Not feeling it. The Bogota has an overall better fit and looks good on you as well. Now I'm just annoyed I missed out on the Oak color way but am happy with the black.

    And to the person asking about the Olive Bogota, when I was at Bergdorf it looked more like the top picture, but I think it depends on lighting.

    I think this varies on your build and how you like to wear your clothes in general. at your current size, if everything is fitted, size up. If you have a looser fit, your normal size works.

    I have 2 classic crews in the 50% supima/modal blend and they are starting to have some "pilling" which is very disappointing. Ive had these shirts for 1 and 2 months, respectively. Anyone had a similar issue?

    I am machine wash on delicates/hang dry. Really disappointed, expected more from a $65 T shirt. I have ralph lauren supima/modal blend t shirts that have held up better after months of machine wash/tumble drying.

    Half unzip from the top down right? I was talking about unzipping from the bottom up, like when you only button the top button on a dress shirt.
    Only time I unzip the bottom zipper is when I need to sit

    You guys are trippin'. FOG's bomber is the GOAT. By contras, the JE bomber looks like it could be sold at Old Navy.

    The Je bomber is far from old navy status. It's a very good take on the traditional bomber. The fog bomber has a place as well and I don't think many here are into street wear to the fog level. I like the fog bomber and I could incorporate it nicely but the price is way off.

    Agreed. I like certain iterations of the FOG bomber I've tried on, but I do prefer the fit of my Oak Bogota and the more streamlined fit. A little less detail in terms of extras, but feel like it is more everyday. Definitely on price point as well, as the FOG bomber goes for crazy prices even on grailed.

    It really depends on the lighting... i would say in between both pictures but with a lot of lighting closer to the bottom. Great colour in person. I had to decide between keeping black or alpine and i decided with black because i don't have a staple bomber in my wardrobe yet. I like the FOG bomber as well but at the price point comparatively JE's does the job perfectly.

    I think the fear of God bomber is great but it's really dependent on how you wear it. I think too many people wear it too oversized and it looks horrible. I think Kanye does a good job of wearing it, but he wears it slimmer than most.

    And also doesn't unzip the bottom zipper all the way up.

    Also I agree with @ZanderRosen certain iterations were better than others. I think the 4th collection version isn't as good at the previous. It looks way too baggy now (especially the sleeves, no one needs sleeves that oversized) and I'm not a fan of the belt closure.

    The bomber is made oversized. It really doends on your build. Kanye is not skinny so he pulls it off. If you are lanky it won't look nice. It depends on your style too. Fog aren't pieces you just buy imo unless you have the supporting pieces.
