JE has been making a lot of mistakes on their site with incorrect descriptions or measurements. At best it's laziness, at worst...

With @thuper_therious I can't blame him, y'all need to remember that's a jacket he bought for his girl. Imagine you buy something for your significant other and they really love it but it wasn't what it was cracked up to be. Are you really going to say sorry babe I have to return this jacket? My wife would be like wtf and pissed off. I sure as hell wouldn't risk that.

It'd be different if he was buying it for himself. I don't know how any of this can be fixed or anything but I would personally be turned off from buying anymore JE.
I personally apologized and offered a return...

Curious to see what these look like without the glass distortion. Look an awful lot like these from what I can tell, and would sure hope that wouldn’t take thousands of hours to knock off:

I feel like compensation, even if it was like $15 store credit. The “just return it then” response felt very callous.
I think you’ve made your point. We apologized and offered a return.

When this jacket first released the description was correct. It was an oversight. We have no reason to falsify copy.

Again, our apologies. Hope you get over it.

That’s a very cynical assumption based on an extremely blurred image.
Cynical, yes. But not that far off base, based on past JE shoe releases. They’ve all either been collaborations with very slight tweaks to well known silhouettes or for the JE branded shoes, basically Common Projects with verrrry minor differences.

Just as excited as anyone else to see these, but the fact is, JE has not particularly excelled on the shoe front and despite blur there seems to be noticeable similarities for these.

shape wise it kind of looks like an AM1. Also looks to have some kind of translucent material like the icons

what a poor attitude. it's a mistake - you're implying they did it purposefully to deceive you. like they're out there to get you.
I empathize with their position a bit but my thing is.. if it's such a big deal, why would $15 in store credit fix that or satisfy him? You can't even get socks on JE.com for $15.
