    I could get away with the medium too but I have small thighs and calves and that's the reason I needed the small. If your thighs and calves are somewhat athletic, you should be ok. if you got the small, it may eventually stretch to a medium anyway if your legs are thicker.

    @Jbidwal Do you mind providing your weight and height? Im in that size small or medium struggle in the escobars as well.

    yeah the measurements of the small with the 7in knee and 10in thigh is what I would wear in denim so I'd imagine the sweats would stretch a lot more than jeans, my only problem is my waist I got a belly I guess haha but I'm going for it and if they don't work out I'l just exchange for the small in grey unless the olive restocks

    The neck on the Fishtail Crews look more tight (which I would prefer) than the Villain Crews. Can anybody confirm?

    This was the main reason I sold my Villain Crews and started buying hoodies instead.

    I finally got around to snagging a gray co-mix shirt. They're really awesome. It'd be great if there were a black co-mix that someone suggested a few pages ago. It was also my first JE crew neck (have quite a few U-Necks and Mercers), and I like the fit more than I anticipated. If you're on the fence because of he increased co-mix price, I definitely recommend giving it a try.

    Also, I want to get some escobars soon, but after reading a bunch of sizing posts, I'm still unsure which size to choose. I wear a 31 in the JE Cobalt and a 32 in JE Coast. For another sizing reference, I'm a 32 in APC petite standard. Should I go with a Large in the escobars? Thanks for any help.

    what are your stats? from what I was told I went with a medium and I'm a 32 in petite new standard and I'm 5'10 170...so just by guessing I think the large would be too big for you, you are probably like a lot of us between the small and medium

    the guy who helped me wears a small and he is 5'7 155

    I'm 6'2" 175. Lift pretty regularly but still lanky with chicken legs lol. I'm not sure if the extra 1" inseam difference between M and L is necessary.

    I'm 5'11" 160lb and I wear a medium. When I first purchased my escos the fit was perfect but after a few wears and a couple washes it has stretched out a lot in the seat and thigh. And because of the 13.5 inch rise it sags weird in the back and looks puffy. I'm starting to think the best option is to size down because they probably stretch almost a full size at stress points anyway. I wear a size 29 in the coast for reference.

    I'm in the exact same situation as you. We're both heavy enough for a medium but too short so it stacks a lot right?

    depends on how heavy and tall you are for the escos. If you're tall and average weight large would definitely be too big. Escos stretches A LOT for me.

    The stacks are fine for me. My legs are longer compared to my upper body. The issue for me is that I have lean/ thin legs and for them to sit fitted, I have to go with the small. The medium will be too loose in the knees and thighs and then yes they will be too long. I had that issue with the old fit.

    Thanks for the input everyone. It seems like I should go with a medium, especially since they seem to stretch quite a bit.

    I think you should just make sure the waist band fits you ok. That's one part that doesn't stretch.

    Can you post some pics? I bought them too. Looking forward to pairing them with my moon or plaster tee and rider jacket.

    That's the charcoal they already released this, I believe they said something about releasing this with a hood but I'm not sure if it will come in charcoal
