    If you worn it a bunch of times, it's probably stretched as much as it will. It doesn't grow by sizes. Just gets a bit looser that's it.

    As stated above^ it will only get a little bit looser. Won't drastically stretch a full size

    I order from Toronto and I get dinged duties/taxes every single time I order. I think there's been one time where I haven't been charged duties and it was on a smaller order. It's usually around 90-100 bucks on average if you are buying a few pieces each time.

    Not sure what effect NAFTA has on this kind of thing but it hasn't been good for me at least :p.

    Looking forward to copping one of the hooded villians which will be my first.

    I want the esco's too but I am still deciding on whether or not to go M or large. I have both sizes and they both fit, it's tough and I guess just a matter of preference.

    That's a bummer. I'm also in Toronto, but based on my 9-10 orders direct from JE, I have only got dinged for duties/taxes twice. I find it has been for larger orders - if I just ordered one villain, I would be fine. Just make sure you pick USPS for shipping.

    This is very true. I experienced the same thing, I've made many orders of 2-3 pieces each shipping to China with USPS. I did not get taxed a single time for USPS, but when I used DHL express which is supposed to be 3 business days, it took more than 3 weeks to get it cleared and I had to pay 80 bucks in taxes/duties. Make sure you choose the USPS option because it will be faster and the chances of getting taxed is quite low.

    Thinking about the exact same thing as you...charcoal escos is a must-cop because i only have one pair of escos, but contemplating on whether or not I should cop the olive villain...Already have the villain in black, sand, midnight, and charcoal...

    I'm 5'6" 155lbs. I just recently purchased Escobars in a Medium and they are working out for me just fine. I was concerned about whether or not to go with Small or Medium... so I contacted JE directly. They recommended the Mediums and I am very happy with the fit. JE made it very clear that the sweats run very slim. Once that was made clear - I really had no issues copping the Mediums.

    Yea, I like the villain but then it feels like you are wearing the same thing all the time when you own so many. Plus I don't really wear mine that often that I need so many.


    I'm your weight and an inch taller. I wear a small but it honestly depends on your build too. I have skinny legs so the small fits. If you hsve bigger thighs and calves then a medium can easily work. I'm wearing a pair of small shorts here.

    That's incredibly strange as I have chosen USPS every time I've ordered from JE. I order often w/ DHL from other companies and I find their shipping has proven time again to be the absolute fastest out of all of the express shipping companies. Neither here nor there, it is what it is. I feel like customs just grabs whatever package they want and there isn't a rhyme or reason to it.

    Anyways I am 6 ft 180 pounds the medium escos actually fit me pretty nicely. I have a pair of larges that fit nicely too. I've had the Mediums for a while nwo and they've stretched out a bit to be almost the perfect size. I just got the large dune escos and they fit well too, but I'm wondering if they will stretch out as well and if I'm better off with the medium charcoals.

    They all stretch. It's the same material. Might not stretch has much since it will have less tension from the looser fit but I say go with the medium.

    Right. Obviously you're build and preference matter. I wear a small in a lot of brands... and medium in others. It's a delicate balance! I can't tell you how often I purchase multiple sizes... and return the ones that don't fit. Our curse!

    One man's perspective... all I can give. Wish I had a photo to share to assist you... but I don't. Best of luck!

    I'm the same way for tops. Some small mostly medium these days. Pants I'm generally ok with since it's very rare a pair won't fit (unless the waist is too tight).
