    Ordered an L in the SS grey villain. Sized up 1. I'm 5'7 160. The problem is most people can fit the standard "slim" fit in JE... I can't do all that with my arm & chest size. We'll see how it goes. But honestly the pics I've seen in this piece look small.

    Ronnie is suggesting people size up from tts. Don't size up from JE sizing.

    The only reference I have is an Alexander wang hoody. It's a medium and fits perfect. And they tend to be looser fitting. Since there are no sleeves to worry about, & if the design purpose of the villain to to be slim/conforming. Then (at least by my logic) the L should fit well....hopefully lol

    Going to purchase my first he piece. I like the villain side zip hoodie. I'm 5'4 135lbs. Is small an ideal size? Also, what's a good layering piece underneath?

    I'm assuming it's just a reference to the usual kith stuff. Like those frayed hoodies that they have up - if you take an L in that, you'd want an XL in the JE for the same fit.
    It's unnecessarily confusing anyway, all they had to say was "True to JE sizing, they are a slim fit" or whatever.
    I'm kind of debating whether to grab some of the escobars as well now, I have two pairs from the original run (black and grey duo 2) in an XL and I've been wanting to try a size down.

    @JohnElliottCo are you guys planning to drop hooded SS villains or was this an exclusive piece for the collab? Ronnie posted that it was exclusive, so just trying to clear up some confusion. Thanks.

    Stumbled upon John Elliott a few days ago and about to order some Hooded Villain.

    How does it sizes compared to Kith hoodies ? Im usually a Small in Kith collections, and it looks like John Elliott is sizing smaller than Kith.

    Can anyone confirm ?
    Thanks!

    I think I'm going to pass on the speckled navy JExKith Escobars actually. I feel like I just like the regular Midnight Blue more. If that's the same terry that they used in the Kith Indigo collection it's also rougher and not as comfortable. The only thing I really like about it is that it uses the silver RiRi zips rather than the matte black on JE's normal pair. I'll just hold out for the Midnight Blue Escobars to come back (if they do).

    I'd say small or even xsmall - mercer tank if you want the layered look to be more visible. Mercer tee but would be a bit less visible

    We sourced the terry, it is not from anything Kith has done before.

    Got the Navy escobars, the grey s/s and the low pumas

    Has Kith's shipping improved? Or am I in for a wait

    Doubtful, just buy the correct size and resell the wrong one.

    If you want the JE look, order same size. If you want the kith look order a size up.
