    Would you guys recommend the Villain Crew? New to this brand and I'm not sure whether to shell out the money for the villain hoodie or the villain crew

    Well I ordered the micro Modal version from FWRD and will definitely post comparison even though someone else already did.

    Pretty certain the grey blend must've been switched up for a short period of time and they thought no one would notice? Or just wanted to try something new. Anyway I'll confirm in a few days.

    To give people an idea of what micro modal is compared to cotton think fruit of the loom vs Calvin Klein

    Thanks to the user who caught this slight difference.

    You're killing your modeling campaign.

    That comparison (FOL vs CK) is correct if you're talking about calvin klein's modal collection.

    Micro modal is a proprietary form of rayon by european company Lenzing. It's a semi synthetic yarn made by utilizing cellulose (as in plants). However, in the purest sense, it is rayon, in the same way that "Supima" is cotton. So essentially the second tag would be 50 cotton/50 rayon (like their normal shirts). My bet, without feeling both shirts is that it's an error on the tag as generally you wouldn't list it like that...and fabric manufactures would just call it all rayon (or modal/micromodal) instead of breaking it down like that. Being in the industry, I can tell you that the tri blend they're using 50/38/12 poly/cotton/rayon is VERY common (without having a shirt on hand, I'd say its the same as the tri-blend track tee from american apparel give or take a few percentages).

    Haha. I bet I am. Oh well. They probably don't want me anyway, but I'm doing all this for the brand and for the people. My goal is to help more than anything.

    I could make the same assumption as you and I actually did. Just want to be 100 percent sure and see in person. I just like fabric and enjoy finding a rare blend (or mistake), kind of like a collectors thing? I'm aware of the fabric breakdown detail you posted ( although I do not work in the industry)

    Very cool for members to read that.

    Anyway

    I follow john Elliott the brand and person heavy because it's essentially me and everything I would do with a brand.

    My goal is always to help rather than hurt. Just want to give a second opinion with actual product in hand instead of guessing, although it seems one member has already confirmed a difference.

    Nice to have some conversation going on in here.

    I have multiple grey items that span back to 2012 and the tags either say cotton or micro-model. There is no difference in them. They all feel and look the same. The expo tee looks the same as the other tees I have in that fabric. It just feels stiffer. It might just be the fabric they used on this run.

    Hey guys - so to anyone who is very familiar with JE jeans, I tried the size 33 carbon jeans and they fit comfortable but a bit baggy, then I tried the 32 and they fit perfect but are just a bit tight mostly on the thigh area, waist is perfect.

    Would you guys recommend me staying with 32's (hopefully they stretch out a bit and then would be perfect, or do you recommend me staying with the 33's which are comfortable but a bit baggier in areas. Thank you!

    Got my cast in coast and carbon tapered from the knee down to a 15.5 cm hem. The 6.5" hem was pretty good to begin with, but now they fit perfect.

    is micro modal the same thing as cotton? I'm just wondering cause my grey uneck says 38%micro modal and I swore it feels different then the expo tee I just got. Unless it's just worn in?

    Micromodal is rayon. I guarantee that tag is an error that they failed to confirm correctly or someone messed up and they had about 2k of them, or whatever the minimum is from whoever they order from and just used them to avoid the loss.

    Thighs will stretch se too. I've been wearing JE since I was XXL in escobars, and 36 in the denim. I have Mediums and now down to 33 and those were huge after they stretch. Just got my 33s taken in.

    Denim looks awesome!!


    That's what I think happened. But hey could be wrong. I just didn't see the point in them making a new inside tag if it were all the same? Only thing that threw me in a loop.
