How are the JE denim thumpers in drape and material? Do they start off rigid and then loosen up as you break in, or are they like JE denim bottoms where they're pretty loose and soft from the get go?
Mine didnt really losen up that much. Bottoms stretch more than tops I think.
Dope fit! Anyone looking to sell a Coast Thumper in Sz 1 lmk!
wouldnt you be a sz 2?

Are you Serial dawg?

These were a day 1 cawp for me since I was intrigued by the color and been looking to delve into the chelsea world, plus my boot collection does not include a shoe/boot like this. My thoughts below:

I approached these Chelsea's as I do with any purchase - by solving MY own problems. Life codes, that I've crafted over the last 20 some odd years, are embedded in my thought process, like believing in the hype and buyer's remorse. My entire swag was made in North Philly, near Max's. These boots use beautiful materials that will last, but hah, luckily for me I won't need them to, since I plan on buying the creepers and maybe even the derbies too, then next year JE will release more footwear which I will inevitably purchase as well, continuing this cycle.

All jokes aside these are great boots that lived up to my expectations once I got them in hand. The suede is top notch, they are light and comfortable (which is a plus since I do a lot of walking, even during these times). The color is kinda what I would call their "carbon" version on suede, it's beautiful, really(accurate to the stock photos). Definitely size down, they are a comfy fit with a bit of room this way(if you wanted to wear thicker socks), for reference I am what I believe to be a true 10.5 and the 43 fits me perfectly. Hope this helps for anyone who is on the fence.

Here’s some quick pics I snapped, was already wearing the spruce jawns. I think the way they are modeled with the gulch on the site is an accurate representation on what they’ll look like on most people. I think they would look optimal with a shorter inseam pant/denim but with a small leg opening to still stack, so the collar is more exposed and showcased more, idk. I don’t have super long legs or anything, I’m 5”11 and these are cast 2s with the standard 33.5” inseam.

I'm sure this is a very basic question for the JE experts here - but if I'm a pretty standard size 2/medium/48; would a 2 in the JE x Blackmeans rider be the best option?

is this the Type III thumper? i’m not sure if the different versions are shorter/longer than others but i’m digging the length on this one
Yeah, type III fits like a typical length denim jacket. Decently long in the front, and begins to crop upwards in the back. Type 3s have pockets.
Type II is wider (baggier) and much shorter (cropped). Also has no pockets.

The Masa type II is a great jacket in indigo or black, the distressing details are beautiful. I wear a M in both type 2 and 3, though i would probably go with an S for the newer seasons, which seem to be fit bigger. Don't quote me on that. 5'8" 120lbs for reference.

Seeing the Masa chatter here today made me break mine out. I saw someone had repaired their collar rip on this reddit post: https://www.reddit.com/r/JohnElliott/comments/6z5ca0/masa_black_thumper_jacket_repair_details/

THEN i scrolled down to find this little gem from our very own @razorfrazer

And i quote "

Hey guys. Im new to the brand and i’m really into getting a few basics or core things for spring summer. I just started into fashion and higher end clothes so be gentle.

I could use some help suggesting a few basics and maybe one statement peice. Im 5’9, 140 lbs. heres a pic of some of my gym wear (lulu smalls) to see my body type.
I absolutely have no idea on the sizing i should be in for these

I was thinking of getting a pair or two of escobar sweatpants (black and sage), a villan hoodie (grey and or apris or tie dye) , cast 2 pant in obsidian and maybe a light wash, some sort of tee is basic or fun colors and some sort of summer bomber or outerwear. Maybe even a leather jacket.

Ive only been following fashion for a few months and havent spend much money yet because my tastes are changing"

Anyone ever figure out why? Was it something you said....
(I’m guessing what really happened is that the mod(s) deleted their account or something. Surprised no one has tried to revive the sub, though it’s less active it seems a bit easier to search for stuff than combing thru forums.)

We could attempt to get the subreddit back and use it?
Yes by sending a msg to reddit admins asking to change the mod(s) to someone active. Just a hypothesis but I know other subs have been revived this way. I confess I have been too lazy to try
