    No, they will not. That was it on the Lima Sweatpants for now.

    Hey guys,

    I was lucky enough to scoop up a villain hoodie last drop and I love it!
    Got it in XL and its perfect. I was wondering, how do you suggest we wash the sweaters?

    It does say machine wash, but I'm afraid of shrinkage, so I just wanted to see what everyone does.

    Machine wash, dry clean, etc?

    Thanks!

    Machine wash and lay flat to dry should be fine

    I finally get few more u-neck tees and a tank. Tank fits me perfect and I am really happy with it. For now I will use it only to layer, but can't wait to wear it in hot summer days and I will get few more tanks before the start of the summer for sure. And pattern on grey u-neck is really nice. I really love how soft these tees are. [​IMG]

    Anyone have any experience washing the sweats? I got the quilted escobars in XL which was the only size I could find. Then I got the grey in L and that's perfect. I was wondering if I should try to shrink the XL a little bit. Or maybe could they be tailored?

    Since they're cotton I'm sure they can be shrunk, but they may look a little misshapen. As for tailoring, JE commented earlier stating the flatlock stitched seams may cause trouble for some tailors and aren't easy to deal with. Imo your best bet is to size down to an L.

    I would not recommend trying to shrink these. They will shrink but not a full size and I do not think you are going to get the desired effect out of that.

    Thanks, I mean I can live with them. They aren't terrible baggy. Just a little too wide at thighs for me cause I have skinny legs. Just a heads up for anyone interested. There is a small grey quilted escobar on eBay. Bid starting at 80 with bin of 150. Brand new. If I was a small I would jump on that with the swiftness.

    I ordered a size XS escobar sweatpant and a size M flash full zip hoodie this morning. I'm 5'8" and around 130 lbs. After looking at the size guide again and reading some stuff here I decided to go with a size S in the sweatpants. I can't find a phone number on the website to call to correct this before my order ships so I'm a little worried. I did send an email back in response to the order confirmation email and also submitted a request to change my order referencing my order # on the contact page of the website. I'm trying to be patient and wait for a response but I'm still a little uneasy about them shipping it out first. My guess is the company is too small to be bothered with phone calls all the time and that's probably why they don't list a phone number. I understand if that's the case but is there anything else you guys could recommend I do to contact them?

    You've probably got time before they ship it, especially if you've emailed. And JE reps do a good job of monitoring this thread, you're probably fine, just be patient.

    Hey,

    We will help you out. Just as an FYI, though, at 5'8" 130lbs you definitely want a Small Flash Hoodie unless you want it baggy, and you may want to stick with XS in the sweats. The waistband stretches - if you want them to fit like the model you would almost definitely stick with XS.

    My xs came in and they definitely look nicer. If the small is too loose, get the xs, it's more hugging aren't the calves. The waist is definitely a bit smaller,but it works. I felt the small fit me snug and these fit very similar. Overall I'm happy with these. Attached are some quick pics. You can compare my black ones with the quilted ones I posted a while back. I used to same shoes so you get a better idea
