1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    Will the Rider Jacket be a JE website exclusive? Or will it be available at stockists?

    A select few stockists have picked up this style, but it will release on our site first.

    Only XL and XXL left for the Midnight Blue Hooded Villain.

    @JohnElliottCo Will this be coming to other stockists, or is it a site exclusive?

    How do yall wear the kitos? Scrunched all the way at the bottom (I think I saw a few models wearing it like that on the runway)? Or scrunched knees and below like the model on the site? I just got mine in and I'm trying to figure out how to wear them. Might take some time getting getting used to with the 42" inseam and the dropcotch.

    I would start the stacking below the knee. I think they are far too long for most to only stack around the ankles.

    Rider jacket looks pretty good. I find much of my outerwear is a small, though I typically wear a medium in clothing items. Relative to the market and the style the price is probably pretty fair, but I'm just not sure I'd want buy from a relatively unestablished outerwear maker. JE's niche is sweats/hoodies, etcetera. The design is quality, but those are Burberry like prices, and I personally think Burberry makes amazing coats and jackets. Side note: for the price however, I'd like to see a much nicer tag inside my jacket..that tag doesn't hold up on the tees that well, I really don't see it holding up on a leather jacket. What if I actually decide to hang this expensive coat up on a hook. Otherwise just got for a nice clean JE&co leather patch inside the jacket...or a nice sturdy chain or link that is actually functional. At this price everything matters to me. Might be one of those pieces worth buying, and trying it on just to gauge the quality.

    On another note, I will say these prices are getting a bit unbearable. It's like JE came to the market with rinsable prices, got a strong following and as expected prices are on the rise. Pretty basic business tactic. These flimsy overshirt prices are ridiculous. I own a couple of the heavier ones for winter and though overpriced, I wear them a lot. These Spring/Summer shirts are so light that I can't understand why anyone would actually buy one over a Jcrew slim fit long sleeve button down. It's hard to justify that cobrax buttons and the cut are worth three times what is being sold by others...guess we are now paying for the name of the brand to an extent. I'm sure this price can be explained away by some special stitching/design technique, but I'm just not a believer. The rest of his price points seem reasonable, just really don't understand the overskirts.

    *please excuse any typos

    ^ We truly try to give our customers the best price we possibly can. The leather jacket is handmade in Los Angeles with all Riri hardware and premium leather. We are well aware that we would actually benefit from having a lower price on some of these items and are not interested in raising prices just because we can or as a strategic business model. The goal is always to bring our products to market at as accessible a price as possible without risking the quality that we stand behind.

    J.Crew can run massive quantities of button down shirts overseas at a low retail price. We do not have that same business model.

    I doubt they are going to put it online for 2 weeks before it's available.
