    Thanks to you guys, I wa able to call-in and get my AMEX -30% discount which I thought was only available in store. It's a good deal given the fact that I ordered the leather hoodie from the GQxGAP collection

    Hey, can anyone comment on the sizing difference between the GAP x JE villain hoodie and the regular JE hoodies?

    I heard about how you should size up on the hoodies as they are very slim. I bought the Gap one in small and it fits very close to the body but still fitted well. The small was the last one so I didn't have a medium to compare for size difference. I'm really like the JE hoodies now and thinking of buying an actual one online so just seeing if I need to size up or not.

    Someone did a great analysis between the 2. Basically, the gap one is a boxier in the body and doesn't 'taper' like the JE Villain.

    Thanks for the quick response. Definitely helped. I'm assuming that the tees are probably sized differently too.

    Do you think a tailor can alter the boxier fit of the gap version?

    Why would you bother? Spend $20 for a tailor to alter a $35 shirt and you may as well have bought a JE+C one.

    Quick question, if I purchased the Gap hoody in a medium, what size is recommended for the actual JE Villain hoody, a Large?

    Do you like the fit of your medium Gap hoodie?

    I think I could've done a large too.

    Gillian can go both ways. I tend to leave my zippers open all the time so you can probably get a medium, if you want to close as well I'd probably do a large.

    I'm 5'10 150 and I went with a Large in JE and JE x GAP, they both fit relaxed, comfortably.

    i bought both tees and feel that they fit very similar to JE tees. I own two u necks and the u neck from the gap collection fits very similar. The material even feels similar with that real light stretchy feel. The white one seemed slightly slimmer and longer. After getting the two tees, olive crew, and varsity jacket, the tees are my favorites from the gap collab without a doubt. The jacket just seems very wide in the body.

    You won't regret it, the quality is top notch. Fits to your body like skin, and best of all it's made in the USA!
