    looked like i was swimming in a large boucle crew - exchanged for a medium but they're too tight on my shoulders (guess it won't work out)

    got my olive/plast engineered pants today. I got a size large (31-32 waist L in escobars). They are way too big around the waist and tightening with the laces creates a bunch up effect. The materiel is also not very breathable and something tells me my legs will feel like a sauna after wearing them for a while. gonna have to return mine.

    Looks like the pants are a no go then. Glad I haven't ordered them yet.

    The boucle is hit or miss too it looks like. It all really depends on your shoulders. Medium on me looked like the machus model.

    I don't know if what's modeled on JE's site actual production items or preproduction items but it will be helpful to get an idea of what the real thing looks like. The models all usually wear a medium but it seems like in reality the pieces can all differ.

    I'm sure JE will make it up to you somehow. But yea, the engineered pants are probably the worst piece of item JE has ever come out with. Surprised to see them make something like that. (well, it's made really nicely, i guess the MATERIAL and sizing of the item is what really made me hate it)


    I wanna cop the boucle sweater in black too, best item I own. Someone return their Medium...and return their tan merino wool sweater in M as well. Haha

    @Jbidwal how tall are you and how much do you weigh?
    that large boucle did look terrible on you and the medium looked much better. You said L is what you take in villains and stuff right? Are they slim/fitted on you or looser?
    I kind of want to go tts and get an XL boucle. My XL villains are really slim and even my XXL is basically like a "regular" XL so it might not be bad.

    I have a pair of the casts Carbon size 33 for sale. Worn 2-3 times PM if interested. Selling cheap. Also have a M black villain hoodie only worn 6-7 times.

    That was actually a medium and I got a small now. I'm 5-7 155. I usually get a medium in everything. Medium villians fit me nice and fitted. Tees generally a bit loose around my torso. I have big shoulders and a chest but I don't have broad shoulders. The boucle really depends on your shoulders. Look at the machus model. It fits him like it fit me and he doesn't have a big upper body. If you have broad shoulders true to size may work. If you don't, size down.

    Thanks man, I'll go XL then. Machus fit actually looks perfect and I generally hate everything about Machus.

    To anyone else that got a flight jacket.....are the shoulder areas on your jackets boxy? Mine are extremely square and it's starting to bother me

    Anyone with the heavy cropped tee care to share how it fits? I think it'd be great for layering but I'm unsure on the sizing.

    Yeah this seems to be true for a lot of people. I like to layer a hoodie underneath mine and I find that it fills out quite nicely.

    Mine is boxy. Bugged me a bit too but I'll likely wear something thick under it

    heavy cropped tee is waynice, best as your main top then layer atop, but w/ a jacket of sorts, bomber, etc...it's so fine. Has that sweet hanging effect so most shirts layered underneath creates a beautiful flow. I picked up the plaster & have been in love w/ it, wanna wear it everyday.

    I'm so dreading my engineered pants delivery w/ all of these comments, damn...sized up too thinking they would fit similar to escobars, oh well...je is kool w/ returns right? Never had to return anything.

    Yea you're fine. you just go on their website and type in your email and order number, and request a return. then they send you a RA# and just ship it back out to them. Their CS is great

    TTS. Best tee ever, layer it with the mercer tank underneath that's the same size. I wear a M in everything, got the tee in a M, and I layer it with a M mercer tank. They seriously need to release more colors bc it's an awesome item.

    ^^ Thanks guys. Can't wait to layer a mercer under a cropped tee with a moto jacket on top. Layering is going to be insane.
