    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Yeah I have to agree from the looks it's the same and nobody else will know it's loopwheeler but you will feel it.

    Lol justifying buying two pieces cause they look like a different shade of gray. Dude, they look like the original gray on the site.

    Bought the black escobar's and dual flash in medium. The all black everything has me hooked, but I WISH they would stop using the matted zippers. When they chip, that damn bronze color starts to poke out =[

    @JohnElliottCo I'f I'm 5'10 150-155 lbs and am between 30-31 in Levi's jeans, should I get medium or small? I have the regular black escobar's in medium and they fit well, but a bit more on the loose side, and I feel like small might be too small. And I'm not sure how much these fabrics actually stretch, since my hooded villain only recently started to somewhat conform to my body shape.

    I would recommend a small, but we like to wear the sweats tight.

    The grey melange is unique on the loopwheel fabric, and different than any grey we have put out. The terry on all of these is substantially different.

    Thank you @JohnElliottCo for the size help and for clarifying the color scheme thing too. Just realized there's more going on in the newer gray hoodies

    Always love video sizing. Some sites do that. JE is very specific on their measurements and i love that. With the different fabrics though that would be great to see with maybe close ups and kinda how it flows like you said with the silk tee since most of us arent able to actually try on or see in a store.

    Got my escobars today and really satisfied with the fit. Bit slimmer than nike tech, but dont mind since it will probably scretch bit and quality much better than nike.

    @JohnElliottCo is the black on the loop wheeler items a deeper black? I'm sure the dye is the But the color outcome depends on the fabric too. Also any fade residence on these?

    For those passing up on these, when ya'll see Lebron or Scott disick wearing these (haha)--you'll be asking for restocks, but pretty sure they won't be restocked. That was my only reason for buying them, might as well order it and see if I like it, and worst case scenario--JE return policy is excellent.

    Expensive as hell man. I'm lucky to be in NYC to avoid the taxes. I got both those in grey as well--the grey with the black looks sick.

    Size and your height/weight if you don't mind me asking?

    I sent back my mediums (which we severely oversized due to a manufacturing error) in exchange for smalls, but I'm still unsure if they'll be too tight. I wish I could just try them on in-person but there are no retailers near me. I'm 5'10" 145ish and plan on gaining a little weight, I definitely like a slim look but not tights.

    @srizvi722 I pulled the trigger.....lol They do look nice and someone said these are great standout pieces with some great materials they used.

    I remember Nike having some pieces with them from $250, they did get marked down to half, but it's no a everyday piece you can wear like JE.

    I'm pretty sure they will restock. The time and effort to fly out to this small part of Japan, manage the production, and make a limited capsule release makes little sense. If it was a capsule release, the price would be much higher given the limited production and the MOQ they have secured.

    The reason why John Elliott hasn't officially said anything yet is for people like you, who think they might be missing out if they don't cop now.

    Think back on the Charcoal Clash crew, they are pretty explicit when an item is limited release.

    You can look at my fit pics if you want an idea on the Medium. I'm about 5'10 but I'm 155 lbs.

    I do squats on a regular basis and they fit me quite tight.

    I think a Medium wouldn't look baggy on you right now and gives you a bit of room to grow.

    @JohnElliottCo I have a question. I'm 5'7 130lbs and the black villain S feels slightly short on the sleeves. Will the material stretch or loosen over time? Also I've just placed an order for the Loop Wheel Hooded Villain in S, and Loop Wheel Flash Dual Fullzip in S, and LoopWheel Escobar in S. How would you compare the loopwheel material to the terry cotton in terms of stretchness after wear or wash? Thanks.
