    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.

    I like the natural color. And it may look a different shade on the anti expo tee. I'll snap a comparison pic of them when the anti comes in.
    It's only a matter of time white and black will come out

    I've never cared for JE tshirts since I tend to opt for $4 tshirts and cycle through them frequently but the Anti-Expo's raw hems caught my eye. Looking at the sizing, it seems as though it runs a size big (pegging me as a size M). I've tried on other JE tshirts in the past and had to wear an XL. Does this make sense?

    I think its the shoulders I'm worried about. 19+" on the large seems super wide.

    went with a charcoal and natural too. i always gotta see the colors in person, je might filter their photos, but the way phone cameras fuck with light and colors is just as bad hahaha. if it's a cream, closer to white, i'm sold. wasn't gonna grab the charcoal but figured i'd just give it a shot. bntl mode

    I grabbed the natural and sized down as well so hopefully it works out. I considered the charcoal, but I think I would rather have the slate since they seem similar in color.

    on point.
    i could go with either a medium or a large for the anti expo but the medium is perfect for me.
    it's the perfect balance...not too elongated/short. not too oversized/slim

    I went with an xs natural myself. I swim in the small but it works nicely for layered. I'm hoping I can wear this one on its own too.

    i'm going to get my Mr P carbons tailored the slightest bit as the stacks are a bit sloppy for my skinny ass. Do you guys normally just request to have them tapered from the knee down to your desired leg opening? I won't mess with the length at all obvs.

    I usually like JE's off the rack cut, but did the same thing for the MP carbs. my tailor does knee down default.

    At the moment I want to buy things that I know I'll get use out of a lot. So I'm thinking of grabbing a couple anti expo's as I'll be able to wear these throughout the year no matter what, whereas the villain or kake would be for like the end of september through april. Money's a little tight at the moment, so I'll probably take my friend up on that Saks offer next week. I'm thinking Pink/saguaro for the upcoming season and a charcoal. I could grab a large in the natural but it seems like everyone's sizing down

    knee down. I think the best thing to do is bring a pair of jeans that you like the cut on with you. Then Have the tailor copy that cut

    I give my desired measurements for knee and hem and send them to railcar fine goods in CA. They taper properly from the inseam to keep the selvage and they chainstitch the hems too, if any of that matters to you.

    your tailor should have you put the jeans on and put pins in them while you are wearing them so you can get a custom taper to your liking.

    ^ but as echau said...railcarfinegoods is a great tailor to send them to as well..you can input measurements from the thigh all the way down to the leg opening and they will hem them for free.
    they are very accurate and do a great job as well.
    the only downsides are you will have to wait a couple weeks and its pretty pricey



    also just realized the XL classic crew is the exact same measurements as a M anti-expo tee


    and theres a slate anti-expo on grailed in a M if yall are still on the hunt for one

    I know you were talking about railcar in general in your statement, but IIRC JE hasn't used selvedge denim since the cast 2 raw denim

    Possibly wearing JE low tops? Or just Achilles laced all the way up?

    Will the new color ways make it to mainline tee's such as curve u or are they only limited to the newer cuts?
