Hey guys I could use your help. Had these in the b-ball version a while back but returned them because I couldn’t justify $250. Found them for $80 new in the swim short version and still debating.
Your thoughts?
1. Too bold and not versatile enough?
OR
2. Fresh and versatile?
on point and exactly how I wear mine! I prefer the swim short look over the practice and game shorts tbh.

yeah you know what John really made me realize I should or could be looking at swim shorts as actual shorts when shopping online. These do fit really well and the print is beach like so it does make the most sense on swimwear over basketball wear.

Any of you got your hands on a Lucky tee yet? I want to know how sizing goes. I'd size down, but it seems like this tee has shorter sleeves. I don't want them to be any shorter.

Thanks dog. Yeah I’m thinking I should keep em. Typically stay away from prints and bold colors because I’m fair skinned but I think these work on me
Bottoms in prints and bold colors are generally easier to work with than tops since they're farther away from the face (hope that makes sense), so don't be afraid to experiment with them.

Just noticed something very strange about my Carbon Uni. The tag says 50% Supima 50% modal when it should be 100% cotton. Not only that, but the shirt is actually green in the daylight. This is my first Carbon piece, so I don’t know if it’s supposed to have a color hue (sort of how Slate had some blue). I actually like the color, but it’s certainly not grey. This is the shirt that bled a bit in the washer and stained some of my other tees- it was ordered from Ssense new with tags.

Has to be factory flaws across the board. Haven’t seen any greenish Carbon coloring on any Carbon piece...
🤦🏽‍♂️

Come on guys. 1st off this is post wash, if there was color transfer to clothing than there was color loss. Developing colors is very difficult and there are “recipes” for specific colors. This is similar to what you learned in grade school, red + blue makes purple, same with various shades of grey.

I have attached some examples for various recipes for shades of grey, as you can see, a lot of them use green in the formulation. JE’s formula for carbon probably contains green in it, and when you washed the item you lost some of the other coloring.

Regarding tags, incorrect tags get added all the time, I’ve had JE shirts with two various tags. I’m sure the person sewing the tags on doesn’t look at the tag to verify it’s correct they just sew what is given to them.

The Nimbus, Coast and Skittles restock seems to have the double layer details removed. Email I recieved from JE has pictures of pairs with both single layer and double layer details. But I think they just used old photos with the double layered details by mistake. Its a shame

Slate is a dark gray with a colored hue, it’s not that far fetched for Carbon to be the same to someone who hasn’t seen it before. That being said the green makes sense if the colors ran.

Not sure what you’re trying to imply, but this is the definition of slate gray, “Slate grey is a grey color with a slight azure tinge”, so yes it’s a dark grey with a blue hue
