The basics look fine to me if you want that long relaxed fit. All about how they are styled. No overt branding and seem to be Made in USA as well.

everything LFC wears makes sense to him. Everything he wore before lead up to this, wasn't he mad into other unfukworthy brands before?

I've heard John Elliot described as clothes for grown up sneakerheads before. Or post sneakerhead wear. 30 year old hosts on Hypebeast podcasts wear it. It makes sense for LFC

Only John Elliot thing I've liked was a boxy white skittles tee (looked like skittles had melted all over it). The rest is just fad sport lux, Juicy Couture without the words

Not sure what you’re on about but this is how it’s gone:

From 15-19 was in to Evisu made in Japan gear, Stone Island, Lacoste and Paul & Shark tracksuits. 95’s, 91’s.

Joined SuFu in 2005 at 19. Went to Singapore for 6 weeks and bought tuns of Bape and jap gear.

Liked Supreme, Visvim around 2006 but couldn’t really get it easily.

Went a bit rough and rugged with Flat Head, Iron Heart, Neighbourhood from like 22-28(?).

Veilance, Samurai jeans that sort of thing for a bit.

Then went to fad sports lux. Knew I should of got on the Walsh trainer and made in England everything trend Sad

Got in my House of Blanks test order. Got a pair of black classic sweatpants and a navy crew sweat in XXL.

Yeah it's Supreme quality and the crew is same about the same fit as Supreme, not boxy at all but def not slim. In 2XL (Super rare from Supreme) it's perfect for me.

I'm gonna order a lot more of this shit.

Rate mine. Washed a few time with no shrinkage or shape change. Definitely size down though. This is a small and I'm a medium all day long.

Have the all important MilSpex seal of approval too.

I’m not sure about that sweat mate, it looks like you’re wearing a cummerbund

The guy told me the other colours didn’t gather at the hem like the ecru ones - something to do with them being shrunk from raw while the others weren’t - I dunno.

would really recommend john elliott sweatshirts and tees. depending on the fit you go for, they're not even oversized. bought one of those cos cotton/linen sweatshirts recently, too. impressed.
