    Gotta order those purple ones.

    Question for the group. Recently picked up the green cord shorts and the brown/gold ones.

    I sized down to small in the green and went TTS medium in the brown. The fit is almost identical except the small is a touch snug in the waist.

    Any clue if a tailor can very slightly loosen the waist or no bc it's a waistband? Not a huge deal if not.

    Do the Skittles jeans fit much differently than the other Cast 2 jeans? I tried on some other colors/washes at Saks- thought the 32 fit me well but I don’t know if there’s a lot of stretch or variation.

    For me they fit similar to my other pairs (Mox, Carbon and Blanca).

    Nice. About the Just Don shorts, so I've seen them around on sites and modeled and they look cool (though until they make a 76ers version, I have no interest in buying), but what's the deal with the $400+ price tag? Are they made in the states with some heavyweight mesh and legit zippers? I know Fear of God mesh shorts and Rhude ones are up there in price too for that matter. I was curious about your thoughts on them as I've never handled them in person.

    The previous season Just Don shorts, they take the $125 M&N Authentics (made in China) and finish them in the USA by adding the pockets, drawstrings, logo, back zippers (Lampo).

    The current season, it looks like all the details are completed along with the construction in China. They still use the high quality materials, like the Lampo zippers, but because the finishing touches are done when the shorts are constructed, they are implemented better, if that makes sense. If you turn the new shorts inside-out, you don't see where the logo is stitched, or the lining of the pockets, because it is hidden behind the inner layer of mesh.

    Also, the mesh is definitely heavyweight. Holding them against the Nogales or Tie Dye shorts, the difference is substantial.

    Has anyone bought the khaki pair? Curious to see the color in real pics. Olive is definitely much more vibrant in person than any product shots I’ve seen of them. I was hoping for the more muted color the JE shots display, but instead they are much brighter.

    Picked up a pair of the black cargo sweats in my usual size (JE 30 / medium) - I echo what DJ said, the details are fantastic in person and the fit is great, slightly looser as compared to escobars. I picked up the olive in a size down (small is back in stock!) for comparison / slimmer fit. If you’re on the fence - you won’t be disappointed. The nylon detailing is well integrated and the sweatpants are very high quality.
