    just got my farfetch skittles hoodie ... hopefully JE doesnt put it on deeper sale than that

    mine has more pronounced coloring vs my skittles tee which is almost not even noticeable

    ^^i think JE did a great job giving us a taste of the rainbow on the thumpers and hoodies. Jeans and tees were a hit or miss

    Just scored the blue pile sweats on JE. I just happen to check and they had my size. Here I was thinking I'd go a day without buying something. Lol!

    No way, if I ever bought skittles I'd want them to be very subtle. They'll have more longetivity and make people get really close to your crotch...

    yeah i think its better that the skittles is more subtle in the pants ... as we dont wanna look like back street bois

    but i think in the tee and def the layered tops, its better to have a bit more color than plain, esp for the price and point of the piece. my skittles denim is more subtle which is fine. just with my tee had more pop

    I prefer subtle too. I don't want to look like I just came from a color run or something. My hoodie has color too but in outdoor lighting it's not too bright. My jeans look white outside

    Please excuse the bathroom mirror pics, all I had to work with right now..

    Got in the Oro flight jacket in charcoal. How do you guys think it fits? This is an XL.

    Personally I think it fits good! Im really happy with it. Had my eye on it since I saw it on the runway and waited for it to drop into my price range.

    For reference Im 6'3"/205 lbs/43-44inch chest muscular build and usually wear an XL in tees/hoodies from JE in what I have (classic crew, mercer, flash dual zip)

    For the NYC crowd: I stopped by Bergdorf today. They had a small selection of JE at 40% off: black coach shirt, black silk bomber, sail pullover, Skittles hoodie.

    I agree with what others said about the coach shirt. The material doesn't reflect the price. I don't mind the thinness which I think is great for summer but the texture seems rougher and stiffer than I expected from a $368 silk shirt. It just seems overpriced even at $220.

    The fact that it's only 20% silk doesn't help either.. I felt the pink bomber at Barney's and it felt pretty cheap to me. It looked cool for sure, but I'm still not even biting even at $580.
