ID on shirt and how’d you size?

Part of the reason why I like JE is it gets me trying things I normally wouldn’t. The Poppy shirt has me hunting for shirts like it to switch things up.

What's the difference between a shirt like this and a JE Bowling shirt. What makes the JE piece 100-200x more valuable?

I’ve never owned a JE Bowling Shirt but I know the main difference is the material. This is made from Rayon while JE is made from Tencel, which I believe is more eco friendly. Also, JE is more limited and probably better quality? Idk about comfort and fit.

Yeah Tencel is considered more "premium" fabric.
I love the 50% tencel SLP flannels. After Hedi left they went to 10% tencel which sucks!

I’ll have to go to Nordstrom or similar one day and tryout a shirt with Tencel and see if it truly does feel much better on the skin.

Honestly though, in the end for me all that matters is if I like the pattern and if it fits well. If it’s $20 GREAT! But sometimes it is $200+ because of the specific pattern.

I love cheap sh!t, I don’t have to sweat over it getting messed up.
One of my favorite jackets is a really lightweight olive bomber from Zara.
With my JE stadium being made of gabardine wool I worry about it snagging or prematurely wearing at the elbows. Doesn’t stop me from wearing it but I still have that anxiety in the back of my head.

Tencel is a form of Rayon. Rayon is a family of semi-synthetic fibers derived from breaking down cellulose (of plant walls). Tencel is a proprietary term for lyocell belonging to the Lenzing Corporation (like MicroModal). You're right in it being more eco friendly. Lenzing boasts that it is carbon neutral as the catalyst they use to break down the cellulose is captured and then reused.

How are ebisu sweats? Had the vintage fleece sweats and were super disappointed in them. Curious about the ebisu.

Thanks

Also, what's the cheapest you guys have gotten new JE denim for?

Vintage fleece sweats were the worst JE has put out since inception of the brand. Ebisus are cool, but not my favorite style. Too baggy on the thighs.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
