    Anybody know where I can find the net mercer tank in white (medium)? It's sold out on JE&co. Hoping to locate it online.

    Pics of the wool bomber whenever you have time!

    And did anyone pick up either of the flannels? Was curious to know the quality/fit. That almost $400 price range for a flannel is reaching SLP flannels on sale.

    Am I the only one here that hates the flight jacket? [​IMG]

    Received my Fishtail Raincoat. Not sure if this is a production error or if this varies by size, but the fishtail opening is nowhere near what is displayed in the product/model photos. It's only ~2 inches, which somewhat diminishes the appeal of the jacket for me. That, and it's made in China. I wasn't aware JE was producing anything outside of LA. Might be returning this one.

    I just got mine. It has the same small opening at the fishtail as you. So weird man. They also screwed up on the pics for the drawstrings - as they are black even on the plaster coat. Such a big difference in the fishtail is pretty annoying - and yes it's also produced in China. JE better not be moving production to China they would be losing a customer. I might return this jacket as well. Not happy.

    ^ We produced the Fishtail Raincoats overseas because the sewing on technical garments is superior. There is no reduction in quality on these garments.

    The fishtail opening measures about an inch - inch and a half wide. In the picture it looks about 6-8 inches.

    Same with mine. Is this an error in production, @JohnElliottCo?

    This is not an error in production. The garments were adjusted and at the time they were photographed the samples had a slightly wider fishtail. We are not moving production to China. Some garments, such as technical pieces, are sewn more precisely at overseas facilities.

    As always we stand by our products and will facilitate a return or exchange if you are in any way unhappy with the product.

    Does anybody have fit pics with the fishtail crew? I like the idea but wish the back was elongated more. Curious how it looks irl.

    does anyone have a pair of Kito's that can be me some insight.

    When you wear yours, does it stay stacked like that or does it drop down to your calf like the photo below.

    Im thinking bout getting the olive ones if they can stay like how it was modeled.

    The stacking will depend on how tight the pant fits from the knee down. The tighter the fit, the better the stack will hold.

    I'll post pics when I get a chance. It's nice and thick. I personally love the flight jacket and been looking forward to it for a long time. I'm from the bay so I guess I can relate to the inspiration behind it. It's a dead on image of what pavement in SF can look like when the fog / marine layer rolls in. Will be getting the olive version

    It is best to update the product images to make sure customers get what was advertised to avoid confusion and returns.

    Wanted the jacket from the beginning and fits the rainy weather here so the changes did not bother me much.
