    as soon as reading the color "plaster" you know its legit.
    Only JE could be genius enough to come out with an awesome color name like that.

    Their runway show is in 8 days. I'm sure after that style.com or GQ will have a full write up/photo library.

    @JohnElliottCo is there a timeline for when the other stockists besides Machus, (Atrium, Apartment Number 9, Revolve, etc) will be getting their S/S 15 deliveries?

    Just tried the kendo tights. Didn't take any pictures since the lighting was terrible but its exactly how you see it on the site. The "melange" is actually really nice they feel pretty thin and they're super comfy. Definitely have to size down one from your Escobar size. Only thing I didnt in my opinion like is the zippers being at the rear looks kind of awkward when unzipped a little. Very nice material and construction but wouldn't spend that much on them.

    Got JE the cast / coast denim in today. Took some quick pics with some boots I got in today also. Fit of JE denim is great but I'm not used to wearing pants this tight. I hope they stretch a little. I sized down 3.

    My question is will they stretch everywhere or just the waist? They are skin tight in the thighs and waist right now I may need a size 28.

    They will stretch where there's tension. So mostly the waist

    Thanks for posting pictures, they look great. How did the honey combs in the back line up for you?

    Honestly, I would exchange them. You sized down 3 when they recommend you size down 1-2 sizes.

    The amount of stretching is determined by how much force is working against it. Generally, the waist stretches the most on any jean.

    The thighs which should be your biggest concern with JE's cut isn't going to move a whole lot. Maybe 0.25" max.

    I would also think that washed/distressed denim doesn't stretch nearly as much as raw denim.

    If the thigh feels really tight right now, it's not going to get much better.

    Jeans look good, but if you dislike the fit, you should send them back. No point in owning something you find uncomfortable imo. I'm still trying to figure out whether I want to size down 1 or 2 (~32 true waist).
