    Linen cardigan is probably the most disappointing item I've picked up in a long time. The quality seems to be fine, but outside of that, not much good to say about it.

    The fabric feels like twine rope and is so heavy that it pulls heavily on your shirt underneath (since it basically has no structure and hangs like a 4 pound burlap sack). The sleeves are ridiculously baggy, so much that the forearm is actually about the same width as the thigh on some of my jeans. And if you're thinking of sizing down, I doubt it'll help, as I'm usually between XL and XXL and I think a Small would still fit horribly, and add too short of sleeves.

    Overall, save your $425. Hell, save the money you'll have to pay to ship it back.

    Jacket looks real good - now you need some new kicks. New balance are not doing your fit any favors.

    They'll be that one pair of shorts I'll wear 24/7. I'm def keeping black and beige. I didn't like natural as much as the other two. Might send it back this week for a refund. Keep an eye out on the site for that return.

    I grabbed the paneled shorts and hellweek pullover since I didn't see any fit pics on here. Let's see how they work out.

    I'm about your size, would you mind posting fit pics of the XL pigtail? Hoping it fits a little slouchy like the Kanye airport sweater

    Interested to see how you like the Paneled Shorts. I've been considering them for this summer, but I'm not sure how they fit.

    Personally I don't like the intense contrast of wearing white and black at the same time, so I would say some sort of high top in gray/black for the most versatility in winter fits. Low tops if you want to wear them in the summer months as well. Not sure about Koio, but you'll see a lot of people wearing common projects around here which are a personal favorite of mine for the quality and versatility.

    Lurk around, look at lots of pics, and I'm sure you'll find something which fits your style.

    If you want a premium minimal sneaker, nobody has managed to get close to Common Projects Achilles still imo. Something about the toe box just elevates them.

    That's what I'm saying.. one of the best fabrics ever especially for shorts. I saw one guy post in here that the material was like "rigid mesh material which is simply awful" and I was thinking damn guy must not even have tried em on or felt the shorts in person and is simply hating.. Wearing in the heat is going to be amazing. When I put them on I am always reminded of the Jay-Z line "linen shorts so my balls don't get hot". Beige raschels bro, an instant classic

    The embroidery is a little weird to me. Are they swim trunks?

    To Me it's more of a classic fit ..i copped a small..i also have the court and cargo shorts from previous seasons in the same size..i wouldn't say baggy tho..loose and classy right at the knee..u can rock a tee or button up with this I think..perfect for summer and that fl heat..material is sick sick...if your on the fence and would like some super chill shorts u won't be disappointed

    Definitely passing on those. Don't like that embroidery whatsoever.

    I didn't like them when the lookbook dropped either. One rule to JE is if you aren't feeling it in the lookbook, don't cop. The urge can grow.. I can feel it too.. I didn't even want the beige raschels but now that I have them there's no way in hell I could send them back..
