I know I speak for everyone here but please man, save yourself and just go away.
JE is getting very popular(due to mostly blogs & celebrities wearing their stuff)so unfortunately its attracting douchebags from around the world who have nothing better else to do but come on here and comment/judge how other men spend their money. if you have nothing meaningful to contribute to the topic, do us all a favor, dont comment.
you are the real MVP
No fucking kidding.
You're essentially that kid in class that won't shut up because he believes what he has to say is akin to the word of God himself.
Go preach your "gospel" somewhere else.
Get a clue dude, people on here see this shit as a nuisance from the random lonely asian kid in california. Please, go pillage some other forum with your none sense.
We all come here for the latest JE updates (& the odd time they throw us a bone), size questions, etc. Honestly, you're single handedly ruining this forum
But you have to understand that I love this brand. I have a good number of pieces. I am just trying to make sure we don't go overboard. We're a family here.
@JohnElliottCo any info on the new mix grey? Is it similar to the old grey? Also will the new grey blend be of this mix?
It's release day and there's more talk about JECo's customers than JECo's products?
People are talking about the products and pricing
Seems like Tokyo is the only one with left field/troll post
Learn not to take everything so seriously, man. I'm not preaching anything. Why did you have to bring up "Asian"? Race isn't that relevant unless you're racist. How do you know I'm lonely? You don't personally know me to say that. I have a good number of friends, people who invite me to hang out with them on a frequent basis.
I'm just bringing in my perspective on the latest trends and whatnot, and you just had to ruin it by saying you don't want to see pictures of men. It does relate to what we're talking about, doesn't it? See, I see style as much more than just clothes. It's art, and if you can't appreciate how trendy it is nowadays for men to grow their hair out, I just don't know what to say.
For instance, this guy right here (thysonb on Instagram), has the same hairstyle. It's so trendy nowadays. Look at the comments from girls. I just happen to think that the trend is interesting because this wasn't as prevalent a decade ago. I find it hilarious that some of them made a reference to Jesus, considering the fact that I do think it's trendy nowadays for men to look like Thor and Jesus. I even saw this one guy at school who has the exact same hairstyle. You have to at least understand where I'm coming from. I'm an enthusiast of the art world. I've always wondered why models, especially male models, don't smile so much in photos and on the runway. What started this? I've always wondered why certain trends come and go. With that said, I'm just intrigued with how this trend of men with long, blonde hair started. Maybe it was Thor, the movie that came out in 2011, that started it. It's amusing because I've seen so many men with that look; they could easily be mistaken for each other.
PacSun's Reign + Storm model also has that same hairstyle.
I wasn't going to reply, but since I was quoted, I will certainly add my two cents.
I've ordered plenty over the past 2 months. I own most of the current collection in plenty of color ways and even went the distance on the over shirts. My reason for that was the quilted leather yoke to justify the price. In my opinion, the $325 was worth it.
Now let's take the recently released SS15 over shirts that don't feature anything new, or even the same for that matter, but for the same price. Surely the fabrics aren't THAT more pricey than the Japanese flannel with leather details and RiRi buttons.
I don't claim to know anything about the production of high quality goods, but from an outsiders perspective, it looks like you are trying to get what you can. Nothing is wrong with that by any means, but don't expect people who have shelled out thousands on quality products to turn in to sheep.
To finish, I actually like the Rue hoodie and will probably purchase a couple color ways simply based on the fact no one is doing (or trying) what you guys are doing right now. The cut is on point.
I appreciate everything JE is trying to do. This is by no means a hate post. Simply my two cents.
^ Thanks for you reply. Every garment is priced differently based on the sewing costs of that particular garment, the fabric used, etc. The truth is, we are pricing this piece fairly based on the cost of materials and labor. We are aware that people would perhaps like these at a lower price, and that we could maybe even sell more that way. We are not simply pricing at "what the market can tolerate" as some have suggested. For example, based on many factors the Hooded Villain could and maybe should already be over the $200 price point, but we are trying to keep our goods in line with the prices we started at. We take pride in manufacturing quality garments in the United States that we stand behind and are fairly price based on the high end materials we use.
It's the single zip, was looking for a dual zip. Thanks for the help anyways.
