    It might be the denim that's been seen over and over in the latest bunch of releases but I could be wrong as I have never purchased denim from JE.

    For instance in the merino crew (ivory) photos, the model is wearing tan denim that may be one of the variations alluded to previously a few pages back by JohnElliottCo.

    Personally for me, the fabric and washes on the denim look excellent but the fit leaves something to be desired, at least in my opinion from the photos I've seen. It seems like all of the denim has a weird shape where it curves outwards on the thigh above the knee and then curves back inward from the knee to the ankle. And excessive stacking (like there's too much jean) near the ankle, and the model is really tall at 6'2 - could be the intended design of JE though. The black raw might be the denim in the grey boucle crew photo - but that may be the old denim?

    Like you, I prefer a more tapered fit from knee to ankle on most of my denim.

    The curves are from the models legs. Everyone has curved legs. When you wear skinny jeans, that's how they look. The actually jeans don't have curve. They will look like how your legs look.

    Are you able to confirm if that is the previously released denim that is seen on most of the new releases? Or is that the new stuff?

    All the newer models wear the new cut. Skinny jeans in general curve to your legs. That particular model did some shots for fear of God and you can kind of see the curves there too. When you have stacking like that it kind of adds to the effect. Everyone has curved legs though. When you have skinner jeans they will look like that. Remember not all skinny jeans are skin tight.

    All in all, it looks like the denim will be slp d02 cut like.

    Damn. What's your waist size? Maybe you have been getting the wrong size in escobars too. Harder to tell what size you are though since sweats fit a larger range due to the elastic.

    This is weird. I asked about this and was recommended a size large, and I have 33 waist. Now that I am looking at the updated measurements (which were terribly inaccurate, you're welcome to the early purchasers) it seems weird to buy anything other than a medium. Large is 34-38 inch waist. It says the drawstrings can help with 4 inches but nobody wants to have their drawstrings tied to the max just to wear the pants.

    I have to pay around 100 in duties just to bring this stuff in so it's not like an exchange is even amicable considering JE's misleading information at the drop.

    Also about the denim; I could be very wrong but I have a hard time believing JE's plan to reveal the new denim was "hey guys, that denim you've been waiting months to see was actually in all the product shots for the whole season" I'm hoping based on fit that its the old denim with an odd tan sample thrown in there.

    They been actually using the updated fits since last season. The denim just never came out yet. Things can change but I think they are using the version that's releasing.

    so im wondering if the sizing guide was correct then? It said a medium waist was 18.5" which is ridiculously big lol and the inseams are sooo short

    They're terrible. Ditto what the other guy said, waist is huge. Look and feel like parachute pants.

    On another note. I got the small bouclee sweater, and I'm gonna have to stick to my medium.

    My girl liked the oversized baggy fit on me. The small was nice but too fitted on me throughout the body and bc of it being fitted, it just looked like a regular sweater.
