    I loved the quilted back villain crews! But the boat neck is a deal breaker for me.

    Any of the SoCal people that got their stuff have any thoughts on the pieces?

    How are the pockets on the Escobar sweatpants? I've been wanting a pair, but I hope the pockets are deep enough.

    By the way, I was only kidding when I said you were kissing up to JE. It's all good. I understand the appeal, as I am myself a fan of this company and its clothing.

    lol all good. The pockets aren't as deep as normal pants I would say. I can see stuff falling out of it easily.

    That's unfortunate. I hope JE changes this in the future, but I'm not sure if they would since I don't think it's a common topic of discussion. Maybe I'll use the hidden kangaroo pocket of my JE sweatshirt to keep my phone in instead and the sweatpants' pockets for my wallet and keys.

    The alma sweatpants have zippers for both the front pockets but they are a little more pricier than the Escobars.

    I've considered the Alma sweatpants, but I prefer the overall look of the Escobar ones. The price for the Alma sweatpants is too steep in my opinion. The pockets of the Escobar sweatpants are nylon, correct?

    Are there still boatneck models available out there? I don't see boatnecks as a problem; I see them as the solution to a problem. The problem of necks being too tight.

    I guess it is just personal pref. my view is you can always stretch a crew out a lil if it is really that tight or honestly wearing it over time it will give and stretch naturally but if it is already a boatneck then there isnt much you can do, but again i think it is just personal preference. I just really prefer the crewneck, so if you find any older models in the $160 range the neck should be a tad loser for ya.
