    Need recommendation on a belt. Been wearing lately Common Projects in white with dark jeans, a tee or casual shirt with a sport blazer, but haven't been able to figure out the belt situation. Any ideas?

    We could prob be more helpful, if you took a pic of the fit. Other questions I have:
    Are you planning on tucking your shirt in?
    What color is the blazer?
    Where do you plan on wearing this fit?

    Trash lighting, but first full JE fit in a while. Been in love with the o/s crewneck I got off the spring sale.

    Those shorts are sweet I had to hold myself back from buying them at full price but now kind of regret it. Kicking myself for missing them on sale for $250 on Mr.P.

    On the issue of JE prices, I know we discussed this before but pretty much anything JE that isn't terry, denim, or leather is overpriced. Their shirts aren't that bad either but their outwear is especially bad. I returned the shorts because the quality was nowhere close to what I was expecting for $250. The quality has been going down but the prices are going up. Seems like JE is trying hard to get up to that next rung of pricing (while maxing those margins). I feel like once you get to those prices (fog, off-white, etc.) you attract a whole different crowd. People who buy stuff just because it's expensive and hot right now. Then the people who actually love the design and fashion part move on to another brand because they don't want to be associated with that crowd and they're smart. Let's be honest, it doesn't matter how rich you are, paying what some of these brands' are asking is just plain stupid. It's bad money management. $400 for a shirt or $750 for a thin cotton JE jacket. There is nothing wrong with treating yourself every once in a while but I would guess most of us buy 5-10 JE items a season. I know I have for the past few seasons (I have 50+ pieces now). This season I only bought 1 full price JE item (I tried to return it too). I didn;t buy anything mostly because prices were way too high or the quality wasn't there on most the things I wanted. Not to mention for two seasons straight we've seen pretty much the whole line hit 50% off a couple months after it's been released. It's almost like throwing money away if you buy it right when it drops. If they keep this up it's not going to be the brand that I rock daily and follow the releases religiously. It will be the brand that I browse over during sale szn and maybe cop a thing or two. I'm just scared their mission for premium pricing might tear apart what makes this community and brand so cool and genuine.

    Sizing help:

    I'm sure this question comes up a lot, in part because Cast 2s tend to vary in terms of stretchiness. I wear a 31 in Rag & Bone fit 2s; they fit me best in the waist and thighs (I have a rather large butt/thighs) and I get them tailored/tapered to get the stacks I want. Should I stick with a 31 with Cast 2s? Or will they be too tight, regardless of stretch?

    I briefly had a pair of Onyx in a size 32 but I was swimming in them at the waist, but I think they were extraordinarily stretched out. Felt like a 34.

    Mainly looking for:
    Plumas, Onyx, Nimbus, Coast, Meguro, Kelso, Lithium, Carbon, Obsidian, Ozone Wash Coast, Dillons. Pretty much anything lol.

    Thanks all

    it could only be a "full JE fit" with a pair of JE High tops, low tops, sandals, or vandals/JE Nike collabs

    Sorry, you're right. The shirt would be tucked in most of the time. The blazer is navy with the patch pockets.

    I will wear that at events that require smart casual, and lots of dinners with other professionals.
