    Made in Japan denim will be a pretty penny. Quality and fit should be superb

    Can't really remember a time, when I was actually looking for to a Monday... Wish overnight shipping was like $15 but I won't get to wear them till Friday anyways. I've been passing on SLPs, off-white, almost pulled the trigger on FOG. I'm stoked [​IMG]

    I know this will cause some discussion, but am I the only one not jumping on board the denim bandwagon? Details are sparse and no one knows how they will fit, but one thing is evident to me: if you're not the "ideal" height for these, the knee blowouts are not going to work. They look too deliberate. The sample they had a year ago as "distressed" was a FAR better design than this upcoming drop.

    I rock with JE heavy, but really?

    Agree with you on the height for the blowout knee look.
    I'm 5'8 and the Hanoi distress rip is a tad below my knees :(

    All JE models are around 6', afraid the intended blowout knee wont look good for me

    Any opinions on the clay and olive oversized cropped hoodie? Looking to cop it soon and I'm torn between the colors.

    Those henleys look ridiculous. I don't see anyone being able to wear them as a single layer alone unless you're at least Swaggy P's height

    I wore mine tonight. It's definitely a different kind of piece, it is long and you should be at least 6 feet+ tall and a slim athletic build to wear it. Otherwise it will probably look terrible, just my humble opinion. Awesome piece though. Layered it under my jade villain

    Everyone will probably have a different opinion on this, but I grabbed onto all 4 colors...and if you don't have any olive/sage hoodies, even though the clay is really nice, the olive is personally my favorite out of the 4 washed colors. The color would also allow you to be able to beat it without worrying about it getting dirty.

    alright but it's looked awful on dudes who stated being 6'1".....so what are you saying?

    IMO, swaggy p height necessity likely accurate

    but also since its made in japan, canadians are going to have to pay customs on it now :(

    Didn't say they would be that much. Just saying I'm ok with that or under. They will be more than 365 almost certainly. The wash looks way more detailed than the Hanoi and that's where the money is. The distressing and paint splatter isn't that difficult to do (knee blowouts are harder to do than simple rips of the Hanoi pairs )

    Blowouts line up better for most heights in general since holes are bigger. Not sure how these will end up but I think most prob will be ok if you get the tightest fit possible.
