    Someone asked to see the fading of my Nero’s that I’ve been wearing forever. Very hard to translate the true color from an iPhone photo but these are clean, straight from dry cleaners. Doesn’t look like much but they’re certainly not 100% jetblack anymore. I love the fade in the thighs. Almost looks burnt. By far my #1 fave cast 2 denim.

    Look like carbons now, looks like the black has worn off th rivets now. Are they copper underneath?

    Not quite. I have the Carbons and the black has held up a lot more solid all around. Maybe because I haven’t had them as long? Also Carbons are a different material than the Nero which could be another factor

    As far as sizing. These vintage joints fit like the reglan

    Yup, copper started showing through, which I personally love much more than the black/chrome

    Thinking about picking up either the Meguro or Coast 2 from Mr. P, but was curious about the level of stretch as my 31s fit well, but they've stretched out a touch too much for my liking. I have Springs and Carbons for comparison.

    Chest width between the vintage fleece and the raglan is the exact same for xs, s, m, l. The body length between the two is almost identical as well

    Just FYI, those are Nimbus's not Coast 2's. Which I actually like more and wear a lot more than my Coast's. It looks like the Coast's probably won't be re-released for at least this season (who know's maybe never again). If any of you were lucky enough to get some coast's you better clutch on to those because they might be hard to find again for a long time. I rock my nimbus's more though and in my mind they come pretty damn close to the perfect pair of denim. They are a little thicker and don't tend to stretch as much as JE's normal black denim (Carbon, Onyx). Close to springs but maybe slightly more stiff. I don't have the Meguro so I can't comment on that.

    Well I’ll see when they come in. Might be all returns

    Oh god. I hesitated because I'm fairly pale too but I saw most sizes were sold out but not L within 4 mins and jumped on it just to try. I think it would look weird worn alone on my skin tone but I'm wanting to try it under my khaki SLP Teddy. I don't have anything in yellow but always thought it would look good layered over yellow. If that's not the case I'll be returning fwiw anybody looking for a yellow large.

    I'm fairy pale too but I rock my yellow raglan under my Mr.P thumper. It looks damn good. Who ever does JE fit pics does a good job of complimenting the clothing color with the model's skin color. But on the topic of what we were talking about earlier, I can't for the life of me understand why John Elliott himself doesn't do it. He is always rocking white and yellow :puzzled:

    I’m 5’11 and 160 and wear size M in raglan and it’s perfect for me. The fit is at a sweet spot between villain and OS. I think if I sized up, the 1” bigger chest would be too much fabric and just look sloppy. If you went TTS on the Vintage this morning, you’ll be just fine.
