Sizing on escobars and flannel? Just want to try to gauge how they might fit on me.
Smalls on both. Typically wear a small in tops. The flannel fits me pretty snug in the shoulders and chest, but not too much so.
I'm usually a 29 in denim/pants and the small Escobars are perfect.
Can someone who owns a pair of Escobar sweats do me a huge solid and check the back of the zipper pull to see what # it is? It should say either M4, M6, or M8 (I'm guessing not M8).
I'm thinking about having a tailor replace the broken zipper/missing pull from the Gap x GQ sweats I got with the Riri model used on the real thing.
JE uses m6
Rad, many thanks.
Another sizing question, as mentioned before I am 5'11 and 165 pounds should I go with a Large since the Medium is sold out in the snap overshirt?
Edit: I think I'm just gonna go with a Large based on the sizing measurements
Got some JE x Gap stuff today; the U-Neck and Denim Blue Coast. U-Neck is pretty nice. Obviously not higher quality material but still very comfy and great for the price. I thought the medium fit very close to the JE medium. As for the denims, I've seen a lot of variation of the color and distress, but mine turned out pretty close to the model pair. The 33x32 fit tts at the waist and length, the length is more of a 33 which is nice for the stacking look at the ankle. However, they are not as slim as I would have liked. With the Coast restock coming up soon, I'll probably just sell these on ebay for $90 and pick up a 31 later in the month. I have the baseball jacket coming in a few days. Hoping that's as nice as advertised.
Looking forward to the pitch black villain and olive tee restock as well.
Has anyone purchased the coast in graphite? The new pics make them look slimmer than they did before. Do they stretch and if so how much? I'm basically the same size as the model 5'10.5" 159lbs but I'm not sure if I should get the graphite in a 29 or 30. I like my raw denim to be tight at first but after a few wears to stretch out a little in the waist and thigh. I wear a size 31 in APC petit standard if that helps.
I do. They definitely stretch out/loosen up with wear. I wear the same size in both models; petit standard and the JE graphite. I hope that helps.
For reference, I'm 5'11 180lbs.
You should reference our measurements compared to your petite standards. A 31 is probably too big, I would suggest a 30 or even a 29.
I think that it is to late for me to return and size down.
I think it's to late for me to return them.. When I first got them I just hung them up and didn't try them on till further down the road..
Olive tees have been restocked.
5'10, 175lbs, 38" chest and 33" waist, looking to pickup the escobars and probably a hoodie/tees when they restock. Pretty confident I'm probably a M in the tees and hoodies for slim fits, but I got 23" thighs and the medium escobars measure 10", which will seem ridiculously tight? So maybe a L on the escobars? Generally take a 31 in jeans with the thighs being pretty tight initially before they stretch slightly
Which tee is john wearing in the pic?
