    I'd say the sweats are pretty TTS. I would normally wear a Medium (size 31 waist) but sized down cause I wanted a tighter fit in these. They loosen up a bit after a few wears.

    You must have stick legs... I don't see how this is possible TBH. That or you're essentially wearing leggings. I went with a size L in the escobar and I wear a size 29 in the jeans.

    I'm a size 30 waist, better to get a medium then? I don't want super tight sweats but not baggy either. Do they loosen up a lot? I'm not going to lie, my legs are pretty skinny.

    Also is the fit any different on the Lima? I like the new quilted ones.

    The washed denim is about the same size - maybe a little tighter because of the wash but it will stretch the same.

    Throw it in the wash and line dry.. It will tighten back up.

    I figure I could do that, but the bicep area is just so baggy compared to forearms that I don't think I have the correct size. It definitely stretches and thats good to know going forward.

    True.. They do stretch.. I think initially every who tired one on thinks should have I sized up? But after a couple of wears it's perfect.

    That's good to know. Still don't think a small hoodie would fit but thinking sweats may work. I don't have thick legs so don't want ultra skinny. I can live with them being snug and opening up a bit once I put them on.

    I got Flash zip in Black and Duo in size Small for sale/trade as well.

    Love'em but sleeves are a bit tight. Guys over at J+E has been really patient in helping me with the sizing but I guess I am not used to the slim sleeves :embar:.

    I am a little confused which size to pick with deep U neck tee and villain. I am thinking about L, and I want a slim fit, but not too tight. 5,9" 176lbs, chests around 43"(athletic body). And I think I will go for the cast in nimbus too, but I have no idea how they fit compared to other brands. I wear nudie jeans slim or almost skinny models in W32", also Levis 510 in W30.

    P.S. Are all pieces of SS14 dropping next week?

    Hey suss,

    What is your actual waist size, when measured flat across, on a jean that fits you well? I can then advise you on sizing for jeans.

    As for tees and the Villain, you are probably good with a Large. The Villain has less give so if anything I would recommend to size up on that item. By Wednesday of next week, we will have fully interactive and updated size charts for every item in every size - so look out for that!
