    I agree with longer slimmer sleeves, you always get that flare in the that make your sleeves look to small or stretched out. Other than that quality is great.

    I think it's great that there are now choices for shipping carriers upon checkout. I absolutely understand UPS on the business-end, however as a customer on the east coast I truly can't believe how slow they are to deliver a package in 2014. I'd love to choose USPS Priority, which by weight or flat rate should ring up to about $12-$13, however it's around $40 at checkout which seems a little strange to me.

    @JohnElliottCo any previews of the charcoal silk tees? Looking to pick up another silk piece and interested in seeing the new color. Love the white silk

    anyone else have problems with the sleeves on the villain hoodie and dual flash zip hoodie bunching up near the upper arm area? I like how the L fits on me length and width wise, but I feel like the sleeves are kind of too wide up there. It gives it a weird look since the sleeves taper down and look slim down past the elbows. Thinking about sizing down to a M from now on. (I have skinny arms, so that probably has a lot to do with it)

    Need your honest opinions. What do you think of the fits? Both are size L and I'm 5'11 170. I feel like I can do a M in the villain. I just feel like the villain is sized inconsistently, I have a size L JE crew neck underneath both hoodies, and it's barely visible underneath the villain. I do have broad shoulders which kind of doesn't help the whole slim fit look. I appreciate any input, thanks fellas.

    I'm 6'1 180 and I wear a large. You should size down.

    both are looking good for me. Flash better than villain. But maybe it will be too tight if you size down in villain, only if you want really slim fit. I am 5'11 and 175 with strong chest, shoulders and arms and villain in L is very slim on me and dual flash is a little looser. I prefer how flash looks and think about sizing up in villain next time.

    i'm a little smaller than you, and had the same problem when i sized up to a L. i felt the armholes were very big near the shoulder, so when i lifted up my arms, i felt like i was wearing a wingsuit or something.

    Hey fellas, I have black escobar sweats in a size Small that I'm letting go of for $125. I need a damn medium since the waistband fits slightly tight on me. Everything is good except the stitching on the waistband, some parts have become unstitched.

    Not sure if I can post this here so apologies if I cannot.

    @aaronj15 the fits look good man. Your body type might be in between sizes like I am, especially due to my broad shoulders so it really depends on you. But I don't think they look bad at all. If you're going for layering as well then maybe size down and try that out.

    If you are going for a hoodie look they are sized nice. If you want a layered look or something either size down the hoodie or get a bigger shirt

    thanks for the input fellas.

    I feel like the midnight collection sizing was just off. Makes no sense that my white crew tee in a L should be longer than my moon mercer tee in a L. classic crew in a L measures in at 29.5" length and mercer tee runs in at 30.5" length according to measurement charts. Not to mention the sleeves feel shorter on the mercer than on the crew, which shouldn't be right.

    Size down. I am a similar size (with broad shoulders) and wear a medium. Fits perfect.

    love the clothes, just wish sizing with this brand was consistent.

    this.

    also, anyone know what denim he's wearing here? looks like a flat black unlike the current raw obsidian, maybe the JE staff can shed some light
