1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was. I'd like to keep you abreast of the improvements we've made over the past few days.
    @notification emails have been added, in response to user requests

    Attached images are now Full Size by default

    Users are now all allowed three (3) links in their signature files,

    SSL certification is now in place so you can all browse securely.

    The server has been reconfigured so that site speeds will improve.

    Notice: Right now the site is slow because we are fixing all the images from the past 4 months. Many of you noticed that these were missing, and we are fixing that problem now. Unfortunately, it is taking up a lot of resources and causing the site to be slow.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Please address any questions about using the new forum to support@styleforum.net

    Cheers,

    What's your guys opinion of the paneled flight jacket? Im very close to ordering it in pitch black but was hoping for some feedback first.

    Ssense has done that type of ish for years. So many times I saw some kicks or something I really wanted, I noticed the next day they took it off sale.

    It is definitely a nice piece. I had the opportunity to try it on at Roden Gray, and it has a great fit and sleek look. I ultimately went with the Bogota due to the warmth and water resistance, but the material on the paneled flight jacket is insanely comfortable, and more lightweight/less warm.

    JE can do no wrong with hoodies. Grab it. It's probably the most comfortable hoodie JE has released, was overpriced at $228 compared to the other hoodies, but the sale price is good.
    JE screwed me so big in the past week with Season 8 purchases

    Maybe I should use the word versatile. I love my Villains, don't get me wrong, I just feel like this is a perfect everyday hoodie fit and style-wise. The material seems seems thicker than their other hoodies to me. I know Mike has stated their hoodie fabrics are the same weight (besides Gauze) but this feels like the most substantial and robust terry to me. It seems more "rigid" than the Villain terry which feels softer to me. The fit is relaxed but not really oversized, fits very true to size. Layering it with anti expos looks great too.

    keep the medium, don't size up to a large they are going to stretch. I even have a couple pairs of Escos in medium and I'm bigger than you. A few of my escos in large have stretched to the point where I sort of wish I had got a medium in all of them but at the end of the day it's not too significant and I like having options. They don't look too tight if that's what you are thinking, and all JE terry stretches after some wear.

    They did this literally hours after they put the black Flash up. I took a screenshot and emailed them asking for the sale price after it was showing as $200 when I added to cart, and they said that it's only the sale price for Japan... wat.

    I cant seem to find the bogota in black sz medium anywhere. The pricepoint is a little more manageable than the paneled flight jacket. If anyone spots one in a medium it would be much appreciated.

    @theonepantless i think those fit good and they will stretch as others have mentioned. People need to realize that yes the models provide reference but the products they are trying on haven't fully taken form or account for stretch with wear.

    I've tried medium and small escos. Medium were perfect off the bat but of course stretched to become way too big and baggy. Small were super tight but after about 10 wears they now fit how the mediums started and are perfect. Everyone's body is different and preference on how you like your clothes to fit. Best to try both and see which you prefer

    lmfao. there should be a meme made out and sent to the JE community.

    "If you are ever having a bad day and feel like you did something stupid, just remember...a guy on Grailed actually believed he had the very last medium Bogota on the face of the earth"

    Your Escos don't shrink back after washing? I've worn my Baselines to death and while they do stretch after a couple of wears, they shrink back to their original fit after I wash them. They haven't stretched to the point of no return.

    I wash them every few months dude. If i washed them like once a week then the medium would work i suppose!

    Any of you dudes with Springs/similar washes ever really push life to its limits and throw them in the washer? Results? I was thinking of doing that then hang drying.
