One word RHUDE. Rhuigi’s evolution was huge on the upcoming collection.

It’s crazy to see the evolution of some of these “street wear” brands. Rhude, amiri, off-white. I was very surprised by off-white, and actually didn’t hate it. Virgil did a great job of evolving off-white. It’s cool to see all these brands go from their infancy into adulthood. Like us, we aren’t kids anymore, nor should we be dressing like it.
Anyway this pic from rhude was 🔥

that’s what I’m talking about for sure. I’ll be keeping an eye on all this stuff when it starts dropping. Rhude especially. I liked a lot of pieces in there, and the styling is moving more in the direction I’m trying to go in.

green jacket looks like anything you can buy from theory or any number of upscale brands

I still find myself sticking mostly to JE basics of denim, tees and hoodies which I think he still nails at the price point...particularly the denim. I find some ALD is a nice compliment but still haven't gone down the road of FoG, Rhude etc.

those who find JE jeans too long do you prefer to turn them up or get hemmed and loose the effect of the original distressing?
This discussion has been beat to death, because you’re a new member I’ll cut you some slack...
If you are short and have a lot of excess fabric at the hem, you’re better off getting the pants hemmed, if you like the distress and rope effect then ask your tailor to attach the original hem. If you’re tall/have long legs and you just have a few inches of excess length and can roll/cuff go for it. But if you’re going for a clean/smart vibe, you’re better off getting them hemmed.
Don't have the original hem re-attached though, it's a bad idea: https://williamsburggarment.com/blog/avoid-original-hem-alterations/

Thanks
Yeah will get it hemmed but some people prefer chain stitching but I want to retain it so will most likely not go for that.
And I think you've said you live in UK, so Williamsburg Garment or Railcar might not work for you, but when I want to hem jeans with a chain stitch, I send them off to a place that specializes in chain stitching to do the alteration. Looks like Denim Doctor or Son of a Stag are London based spots that offer the service.

FOG is just another more expensive version of I'm going somewhere like a basketball game, the movies, or out in the day wit friends. ALD though, at that lower price point nails it for me cause they do sweats and casual stuff but then give you stuff that if you switch out sneakers for a clean boot or something you can now go to dinner and not look to uptight and stuffy.

interesting take on the original hem, although the article comes off pretty elitist especially with the 2nd paragraph starting with "it's cheesy, hacky, corny, wack" without providing any real reasons why. At the very end, he finally states it loses flexibility and creates a stiff, uncomfortable line. Also, depending on the stitching technique it can be messy so you wouldn't want to cuff them. IMO these are exaggerated reasons. All my JE jeans have an original hem except raw and jets since there isn't a need for them. After they're hemmed, I have them pressed so that it minimizes any bulk. I also do cuff my jeans and have probably posted photos of them here and I don't think anyone has said anything, meaning, I don't think anyone cares/noticed.

I like the original distressing on the jeans which is why I keep them and while it's true, "patience pays off", I don't think it's clear on how many times "washing regularly" will achieve this. I only wash my jeans when they get dirty and I have a good rotation going so a pair may take months for it to hit the washer so it would take me a very long time to get the same distressing on the hem.
