    That's due to the difference in material composition. The black are 100% cotton and the grey are 83% cotton, 17% polyester. The polyester gives it a slightly softer feel.

    JE Denim fit question: I usually wear a 34 in slim-fit non-stretch denim and a 33 in slim fit denim with stretch with a desired result of the jeans being slim throughout the leg, some slight room for comfort, but not skin tight.

    Basically, I wear my jeans only a little bit looser than they appear on the models on the JE site. Any recommendations as to which size I should go for JE? Thanks in advance.

    The jeans do stretch, but the best thing to do is to measure a pair of jeans you like the fit of and compare the measurements on JE's site. I've found that JE jeans stretch an inch laying flat or two inches around.

    JE offers my favorite denim design and cut, but does anyone find the jeans to be lacking in durability? I typically make my raw denim last 3-5 years. These Obsidians had hardware issues in year 1. It hasn't been 2 years yet, but they're already developing back pocket and crotch holes

    If you wear them a lot and they are raw it's common. Really just depends I guess.

    Only thing I want to see/complaint is on the non raw denim is a longer inseam.

    yup It would be nice to see those destroyed jeans coming out with a longer inseam option. They should do 33 and 35. It just sucks when a company makes jeans that are too short. Like I understand that I'm taller then ur normal person but they can get them hemmed lol I can't extend jeans. I love the higher end denim brands that make jeans in one long inseam like 36-37" and u just get them tailored to u.

    So I tried sizing up from M to L. The length is definitely better (M was too short) but I'm interested in what others think of the overall fit. Sorry for bad quality phone pics.

    I'm also in between sizes so I find myself being a little too critical with my fit. Then again, if you're paying that much for a hoodie you do want it to fit as perfect as possible. That food looks pretty solid to me. Technically, I guess you could consider sizing down but then again it would probably look too tight and would take a while to loosen up whereas the fit you have on now works pretty good already.

    So i got my midnight Rue in......I think it looks pretty good with a white or grey U-neck, havent tried it on with a normal shirt yet. I think that will be the make or break. If it looks weird with a normal shirt i will probably return it for a villain when the midnight restocks tbh. Also, the cotton is less substantial than the villain i have, definitely more of a light weight spring/summer feel to it (which makes sense seeing as it was a spring 2015 release)

    Also, does anyone have the SS extended villain crew? How do you feel about it? Have someone offering it in a trade for some nikes i have. Intrigued but wondering how much use i would really get out of it

    I think it looks fine. It's not like you are swimming in it.
