    Bittersweet JE day for me. I decided that my Obsidians just aren’t the right fit/size for me, and put them up for sale. Wish I had kept my Carbons now, but guess I’ll wait for a restock.

    On the other hand, I got the switch overshirt in, and I’m really happy with it. Material is thick enough, pockets are a great feature, and the color is just like I hoped. Mediocre bathroom pics below.

    To whoever is going to the friends and family sale tomorrow: I need a medium Kempy Wool Overcoat badly (assuming sale prices). I already see one in their IG story, so if there’s a medium and someone could proxy that would be dope.

    Looks good. Different enough to have both. Glad I was able to pick up one before it sold out.

    Got my Overshirt in Bone. I like it enough to keep but I will be honest, it almost went back. The frustrating part is this easily could have been one of my favorite JE pieces had the material been a little thicker and the length a little longer. Frankly, had I tried in on at the store I probably wouldn't have bought it just because I think, at $350, it's grossly overpriced. I could have pretty much bought the Blouson, Thumper II, or most the denim line for that. That being said, I needed something like it, I think it looks good, and I like the versatility. In deciding to keep it, I quickly threw on a few fits. I combined it with some JE things and so I could take some pics and throw them up here for people still deciding. Please disregard the bad lighting, dirty bathroom, thiccness, and shitting iPhone pics.

    Yeah...

    I too got the Bone in and it's cool, but not $328 cool.

    It would be much improved if it was a lot more droopy. It has an awkward fit around the body

    IDK if I'm going to keep it

    I know. Anybody going to the sale if you find any key pieces like Sail (Size 4 or 5) or Nimbus 36, I will buy in a heart beat. Really almost any cool piece in a large size I will buy.

    These obsidians are insane. Whoever said JE would be crazy not to make these available all year round was right. I'd buy them over and over again.
    Blouson cool. I like it better than the type II but I can see why people will like the type II better. Only gonna keep one of these zip ups, Will sleep on it.
