The Kingston again...Anyone think I should just ditch this small and just get a TTS medium?
It looks fine, maybe a looser/cropped t would do the trick? Hopefully this will help. The nova is a small and the paloma is an xs. I ordered both the butte and kingston in a small, xs wasn’t an option since it was already sold.

don’t sleep on the Sochi co-mix...super comfortable
i was thinking of grabbing these, how did you size compared to other JE sweats? is the interior similar to the terry found on most JE sweatpants? i’ve only ever owned comix tops so not sure how it compares

Yes. They aren’t heavy in weight but the quality is there.
I wonder which mill is YL’s manufacturer, made in Canada so maybe Roopa Knitting Mills. Seems like they supply a lot of the high end sweats, I’ve started just buying their blanks :).

IMO the M would be slightly better but I would not bother. I got M kingston S butte and realized they are both fine and the variety is nice.

As far as sizing goes, I got the same size as my ebisus, where I sized up from my tts. I can fit tts in both but I prefer the comfort and aesthetic of the size up. As far as the interior, I find them softer than my ebisus and more in tune with my vintage fleece hoodies. I hope this helps.

I’ve never tried YL or Cole Buxton sweats but hard for me to find a better fitting pair of sweats than the heavyweight LA’s. I’m a 29 in Cast 2 but at 6’1” I need to go medium for the length. Shown here in washed black with the Jupiter shirt in Bend (thanks @nick227), Dune AE, and Beige Icons. I know it’s tricky with the fabric but a heavyweight grey pair would be a must cop for me.

The CB sweats are more relaxed and high waisted. I'm the same height as you and my warm-up sweats pretty much hit right where your LAs are at in that picture. They're 500gsm which is heavy af and feels like a pair of denim lmao, but I can wear them on a breezy day here in Hawaii just fine.

Don’t look bad IMO. But I can see if you wanted a looser fit. If you can’t find a medium just keep the small.

I got the butte in and it’s definitely the heaviest hemi I own. I have the Paloma (the lightest), speedway and cinder (similar weight). I will toss it on tomorrow for pics.
