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.

    I think he told us on page 63
    "These are the Quilted "Lima" sweats - basically a quilted upper with a separate fabric below the knee.

    This Spring / Summer, we will have four styles of sweats, 2 Escobar sweats - in the same colors as fall, but with quilting at the knee, and 2 Lima Sweats (as seen in this collab), one quilted grey on top w/white bottoms, and one quilted black on top w/grey bottoms."

    I can't wait to hear what kind of fabric these pants will be. Are they made of the same materials as the RF collab?

    You're right - technically 2 styles, 4 colorways. The fabric is the same on all our sweats. There is some quilting element to each of them this season.

    Anybody interested in a small black Villain and/or a small gray Villain? The black one has been washed once, air dried, and worn a few times. The gray one has been worn once and never washed. The hoods are a little too small for me, so I think I might try the Riga. Selling for $150.00 each. PM me if you're interested.

    Riga is even tighter cause there is no side zips.

    Just referring to the hood itself, not the whole hoodie, but thanks!

    Re: denim

    Any other changes to the fit? I'm a 31, athletic and my experience was the following, with the Obsidian:

    29: couldn't button top button, legs too tight
    30: perfect except waist too big
    31: too big everywhere

    Love the denim, especially the new color. Wish the sizing was a bit different.

    Don't forget they have a restocking fee on returns and you only get store credit (that expires after a year) unless the item is sold out.

    Can not wait to purchase the villain hoodie.
    For those that do know/are familiar with the LA area: does American Rag or Fred Siegel carry the villain hoodie? If not, I assume they will come available on the JE website next month. Also, I am 6'1" 190lbs--should I get a L or XL. Any clarification on either of these will be appreciated

    This was the downfall of unis, shouldn't have done that- dohhhhh. All that should have been modified was the top block to make the jeans more tts. The leg opening was already perfect, but to each his own I guess!

    Interesting...my only issue with the drakes that I tried on was that they were too tight below the knee. Seems like any more taper would just exacerbate that.

    On the other hand, that denim is a pretty fantastic color, so I may end up giving them a shot regardless.

    unless I'm reading it wrong, only the one pair of new denim will be more tapered?
