    people on here are obsessed with sizing down in everything lmao, stuck in like 2010

    i feel like srivzi is one of the only fellas in here who nails JE's intended proportions on his fits

    JE Intended fit is not always the best route... with that said, the JE site recommends sizing down on Basalt tees anyway lol

    Would you believe I’m still waiting for my replacement Obsidian Thumper? I’m actually really annoyed now that I think about it.

    I can’t imagine sizing down twice in the Basalt unless you’re legitimately a tiny human...

    I’m 5’10” ~155lbs and just got the Garden Basalt yesterday, it’s my first one so I went down to a small in it based on JE and everyone in here’s advice. I feel like I definitely could’ve stayed TTS with a medium.

    Didn’t this all happen last week...?

    Unless you’re also in CA it’s going to take time...

    I’m on the East coast and it’s never taken less than 7 days for me to receive an order directly from JE — at times it’s taken up to 2 weeks.

    I think oversized fit and size mainly depends on your body. If you have the lean / soccer body you can really wear anysize (true or sized down). If you are heavier or a lifter, then you have to play around a bit. On a bigger person, too oversized can easily look like a muumuu dress or a gown

    It's a mind trick with their new sizing. They size all the models up to a L when they are typically a M. Then, for the Basalt, tell you to size down, which is a M for the model from an upsized L - thus, TTS.

    Got excited about the Poppy print restock then I saw the shirt is running almost 4 bills. Crazy.

    Has JE mentioned a pre Fall collection this year?

    Anybody here bought the tie-dyed shorts and kept them? if not why did you return them... I feel like quality isn't up to par like the other items that are made in Los Angeles... the tie-dyed shorts are made in china and material just feels cheap.

    For real, JE needs to chill with these prices - obviously some things are justifiable like denim and outerwear but $100+ t-shirts, nahhhh

    Keep your entitled millennial thoughts to yourself. They are looking after you... show some damn patience. Most brands customer service doesn’t even come close to JE’s

    The quality on the shirt is pretty good. Others with similar quality sell for much more.

    I thought I was the only one that felt this way, $248 for mesh shorts too come on man. $148 should be the price point.

    The shorts definitely could have been priced lower or had better mesh
