    Regarding cast 2's-

    I've since sold my Scarabs, Odeon, Zinc, and Cobas. I have the Bianca's, Skittles, Dillon Blacks, Mr. Porter indigo distressed, Carbons, ordered Obsidians last night, and on my second pair of Nero's.

    Honestly, I wear Nero's like 6 days out of the week lol and they look better as they age but they're getting a little too stretched in the thighs and knee holes mainly due to my dog.

    Im probably gonna sell my Dillon Blacks and Mr. P Distressed very soon, and keeping the white denims on ice until summer.

    My ideal point to get to with JE is to have all my staples covered, get a couple interesting items each season and buy new Nero's every year and that's it. Having too many clothes, especially denim, is absolutely pointless.

    PS. I size down 2 sizes to 29 because the waists are so stretchy. Just a tip to some of you newcomers. Within 48 hours the cast 2's fit perfectly, every time.

    I too have 14 pairs of JE denim. Likely going to turn the Zincs into cutoff shorts - since they are from the first run. And I am gonna sell the Springs unless I have a change of heart.

    I get pretty good use out of most of the denim. I'll wear two in heavy rotation and then switch them out.

    I have too many clothes in general.

    That's all.

    Wish I could afford both jackets tomorrow. Always wanted a perfecto style, but that stadium jacket is looking more and more tasty. Might cop that and save for the Season 11 washed black rider.

    Didn't a few retailers pick both jackets up last year?

    If I had 14 pairs I would wear them maybe 2-3 times each a year....probably how my tees are though. I got way too many

    Finally got bone flannel in. I actually really like it, but it's size L and fits too big, which is weird because my brushed red flannel from Season 7 in Size L fits perfectly like my size M shadow flannel. I wonder if it was just mislabeled or cut differently back then. Anyways, does anyone have a size M bone flannel they're returning? or want to trade to size up?

    Digging all the pics of denim lately. Really stoked for my Plumas to come in.

    As for people asking whether to size up/down, do your best to try it on in store and then make your decision based on that. Yes the jeans do stretch, but if they fit like leggings, they can only stretch so much. I personally size up 1 size and then have a tailor take in the waist. Fits perfect. (I'm in the minority here as I normally have to size up and then tailor in almost all pants, but wanted to say it is an option)

    Also, here's some love for the Carbons.
