    It’s a tough call. Depends on how you like your sweats to fit. The L is gonna be kinda snug at first too.

    I can’t tell from the pic but are the pockets pulling? If so go up a size. If not you might get that sweet spot on the stretch.

    You’re a medium in Escos right? Honestly I think those might be mistagged. They shouldn’t fit significantly tighter than escos

    Just copped black Rios from the restock. Went with L, I wear 31 in denim. Still confused from all the sizing talk so hoping for the best

    JE pro tip: order 2 sizes of everything, free returns y’all

    TL;DR: order 2 sizes of everything

    My escos were also skin tight and few people said to size up but they've stretched nicely and in fact sag a bit after multiple wears (around 4-5 wears). So hard to say without knowing how much they'll give. But I am curious for the large to arrive for comparison.

    (Shipping and returns get pricey from US to Canada).

    I picked up two from Noah NYC last season that I like a ton. Dad cap silhouette but with a little extra depth. John's always look super shallow which doesn't work for me.

    My dune Rios came in today so I’ll post a pic later of how they look out if the box vs my worn in black ones.

    Free returns got me wanting to try Boucle Ebisus, but I just can’t pull the trigger at full price, since I know I’ll keep them if I like them lol.

    I tried them... the boucle texture is great but the Ebisu shape is very underwhelming. Also, the cuff doesn’t even stay up. It’s a pretty loose hem that just falls to the ankle, smh. Wish they did them as Rio’s or Esco’s.

    Damn that doesn’t sound good... I was gonna size down because the measurements in sizing down are comparable to my Esco and Rio size..
