    I understand the whole pricing process going on with JE and I definitely don't blame them for the pricepoint of their outerwear. The custom made fabrics, size of their batch runs, and the retailers carrying their products all factor into the cost. I don't think they are price gouging people or that they're greedy.

    I think part of the problem with selling the outerwear is how they branded themselves, as luxury basics. The price jump to the outerwear is sizable from their french terry items. They're trying to expand past the basics line into a full wardrobe and it isn't easy.

    With that said I believe they tried to grow too fast but I won't get too much into that. I also don't think them taking the flight jackets off spring was the right move as it obviously created a lot of backlash. They should have just had items excluded from springs sales.

    To the people complaining about the lack of their presence in this thread, I can't blame them. They are in a no win situation.
    If you don't like the pricepoint of their stuff you don't have to buy it. I personally won't buy their outerwear as there are other brands in their price range I'd rather get.

    As others have mentioned before I see similarities with Wings and horns.

    IIRC, accessories aren't being introduced until SS16.

    Would anyone get the white villain hoodie or this instead:
    http://www.barneyswarehouse.com/alexander-wang-raglan-sleeve-zip-up-hoodie-503377630.html

    I'm thinking of getting Alexander Wang since it's retail is very expensive and the quality must be much better, not to mention it includes cashmere. But, on the other hand, the villain hoodie looks clean, has side zips instead, and would look great for layering - can't decide. Anyone can help?

    white villain is horrid

    get the grey one. or maybe the dual zip.

    lack of pockets on Wang super throws off the balance to me. function > form

    Does anyone know whether DHL automatically taxes packages? JE now has two options for international shipping, DHL and USPS. I know USPS randomly taxes packages, but idk if that's the case for DHL. Any help would be appreciated.

    Alexander Wang material is subpar what the price suggests. But I'd still get Alexander Wang over JE, just bc it's Wang. + grey >> white.

    Je said they aren't. I would grab them asap if you really want them. Someone mentioned they saw them at kith too.

    Beautiful piece. Mind chiming in with the price or a ballpark figure? Really like this & looking to pick this up.

    The front inside of the pockets are lined with jersey. They are otherwise all Boucle.
