    Yeah. It's just my opinion. If they sell well then I'm in the minority and it doesn't matter. If it doesn't sell well then maybe my comments will shed some light on it.
    I'm under no assumption that anything I say will make a difference, but like I said, constructive criticism and honest opinions are invaluable

    I have the old scar tank - no complaints.

    Re: the double hems and the quilted shoulders on the overshirts. Other users mentioned it when they first released, but the tone on the stitching and the alignment of the fabric on the double hems left something to be desired.

    Re: double hem on the western shirt - kind of an odd look IMO, but I guess it can be consistent across various models. Maybe helps distinguish it from say VISVIM 4 corners shirt or one of the new SLP shirts.

    I can totally see your haphazard zip comment with the Clash, but what is it about the Rue that seems haphazard? I didn't think that chest pockets would be so controversial. I have one and really like it actually (so I am biased).

    Haphazard probably isn't the best word, it just doesn't seem necessary and I think it stands out and kind of dominates the whole thing (very well could be the intention).

    What you guys think about the size ?

    This is a medium... Small would be too slim huh ?

    Underneath is a Large crew, under that is a large silk grey u neck lol

    Sorry, but I'm still "eh" about the denim shirts. I'll have to see 'em in person before just pulling the trigger like that.

    Strange, I think on my denim shirt, I got a old or used tag. Not sure if you guys can tell by the picture, but on the denim shirt the tag looks like its been washed? Or maybe the tag is suppose to look like that to go with the distressed shirt?

    Maybe the tag was on there when they distressed the shirt?

    @victoorious thanks for the pics. The medium looks fine to me. I think a small would fit you closer to what is modeled by JE, if that's what you want. It's hard to tell from your pics with your arm bent and all, but the medium looks a little long/loose in the arms. Did you try a small also? I ask since you bought the rider in two sizes and have the luxury of living so close to JE.

    I have the Isherwood denim shirt from ACNE and its a little loose like your fit is and I like that. This style shirt looks good a bit looser IMO. The small seems like it might be too short on you.
