    No. All that stuff is too complicated for me; I'll probably just cold wash and hang dry whenever they need a wash.

    they should shrink up a little after the wash and hang dry. After that when you stretch them back out you can get the wait tailored and you should be good to go. I'm waiting a few more months before I do mine. But once I do I'm getting the wait and the leg taken in(I have the old fit)

    Just got my pitch black villain today.
    What do you guys think of the fit?
    I'm wearing a L curve neck and crew neck and the villain is an XL.
    I like how it looks I just wish the the shirts stuck out a little more.
    Any input or advice would be nice, thanks everybody.

    Maybe you could size down the hoody?
    Looks more so like an actual 'Hoody'(fitting wise), then a piece you want to layer (if that makes ssense)

    I also think the mercer tee or tank would look better for layering. Just because the both have the side slits

    Yup, I'd go with Mercer tank. I wear XL Villian and L in the Mercer tank.

    I was thinking the same thing about sizing down, I'm probably going to exchange it for a L.
    Prime I have a L black mercer tee I could use, but I was thinking about the grey rebel mesh tank instead. Do you think that would look alright, the rebel is basically the mercer with mesh?

    @chase504

    here's a reference pic as to what a L rebel tank looks like under a L villain. I prefer the way the tanks look layered underneath the villains as opposed to any other shirt.
    You could probably get away with a L, but there's nothing wrong with the fit you posted.

    and here's a more relaxed hoodie fit I stumbled upon on IG, which IMHO doesn't look too bad.

    Different preferences, I'm kind of steering towards to more fitted layered look. Going to try to get a medium in my villain next time.

    Thanks, the rebel looks clean under the villain!
    I'm going to exchange for the large because I want a more fitted look like you said.
    I have a lot of room in the shoulders and chest rn so the large should fit just right.
    Lord Disick can generally make anything look good.

    Looks like it. The blend gives it away. Love the white silk.

    Also for those that want a layered look you need to either have the same size hoodie as the tee or the tee needs to be one size up. That's the only way you can get the look you want.

    Any idea when American Rag is getting new stuff in? Their selection has been pretty pitiful for a while now (at least in L and XL sizes).

    The Escobar in Burgundy fits at least an entire size smaller than that Lima Sweatpant. It is much slimmer through the leg and is an updated fit. You should refer to our measurements, but if you feel a more tailored version of the XL you tried on in the Lima will work go for the XL.

    Hey @JohnElliottCo in the pic you guys have on Instagram outlining all the items for F/W 2014, are those pants under the escobars the same but with zippered front pockets? Was about to get a medium pair of escobars until I looked really close and looks like it. If so, when are those bad boys dropping?!

    Also took advice and decided to return the pitch black villain from L to M, hopefully this works out better, and this time I'll definitely post up pics. Just been waiting lol.

    There are sweats with 3 RiRi zippers coming out. They also have mesh overlays at the knees. They are called the Alma Pant and will retail for $298, dropping later this month or early September.

    They will be available in Sand, Black, and Grey.

    wow, I have few villains in L and mercer tanks in L and my tank looks much longer than villain and not only slightly longer as on your photo. That's why I am thinking to size down on mercer tee...
