    Does anyone have both the loopwheel & flash dual fullzip that can compare the quality? I wouldn't mind spending extra 100 but It doesn't have dual zippers, srsly why doesn't it, & not sure how I feel about those drawstrings.

    The drawstrings are a significant upgrade.

    The fit is more relaxed but just slightly. We're talking a matter of 1-2 centimeters in key areas. The terry cloth itself is significantly better; It's airy, soft, and has a springiness to the fabric. Well worth the mark up IMO

    I'm surprised more people haven't been sharing their opinions on the new loopwheel stuff. I got my black loopwheel Kake in on Friday, and wore it out that same night. I really love how soft the terry is, and the feeling is more substantial as it is thicker than the normal french terry.

    Sizing and fit-wise, I went for my regular size (3/L), and I'm very satisfied with the fit. I personally wouldn't size down since the Kake is already cropped in the body, and it probably would've been too short if I did (for reference, I also wear a 3/L in the villain).

    For those of you on the fence, I would strongly recommend picking up one of the loopwheel pieces, as I feel like the quality of the fabric justifies the price increase over the normal collection.

    Overall thoughts/opinions on quality of Bogota? Got last Black XL from Saks for $270, a little on the fence about it. Any other options I should consider?

    agree with you sri, and dmill what happened, thought you felt it was a dope piece! ?

    Just playing - I got the grey one too and I'm returning it as well! Something about it just looks cheap IDK, can't put my finger on it. It does not look like an expensive/classic piece contrary to pretty much every JE terry piece that I own, and it is more expensive than all of them.

    Pains me to say but it looks like a sweater you can cop at H&M or something.. I think it's a combination of the white zipper/white drawstrings and just the grey colour in general. Although I do think the LW grey is nicer than the classic grey/dark grey so it's a bit weird why I have that perception.

    It sucks because I only own 1 grey JE hoodie (7.5 fleece) and really wanted to keep this one as it would go with a lot of wardrobe and would fill up an essential need (as nsub remarked).

    The terry is amazing and so soft so I am exchanging mine for a black one though.

    I think it's the single zipper & drawstrings.

    It is a dope piece...but I have enough grey hoodies to last a lifetime. Plus 3 Benjamin's sounds better staying in my wallet.

    Considering its nearly sold out in every color from multiple retailers tells you all you need to know. It's a very good classic bomber.

    @dmill you probably need a Medium thats why. I wear a large in everything from tees, to the rider, villain, kake etc.
    but i went with a medium in the bogota and it fits perfect.

    Paneled shorts return. Passing because I'm rattled I missed out on the 7.5 fleece pair and I know the dark grey terry will not compare.

    Not sure how I feel about the mock neck on the new crew. I don't understand the fascination with mock necks right now. IIRC, the last JE mock neck didn't sell well...

    100% agree. The grey color looks cheap and the zipper with the white outline looks like something from h&m. I love JE's dark grey much more
