Yeah, I found it on the Jantzen main page yesterday. I'm also curious about the price - maybe this linen isn't "leftovers" like his cotton fabrics. I definitely plan on ordering one, but the weather will probably have cooled off enough by the time it comes that I'll be wearing mostly warmer fabrics. I've ordered from both but have no experience submitting designs. The sad thing is that we'll be in the middle of fall by the time any shirts we order arrive.
If you want to overpay for the quality you'll receive, you can try the designer route. A lot of continental designers cut their shirts long and slim.
If taste is your main concern, stick with whey protein concentrate and isolate and stay away from anything with hydrolyzed whey/whey peptides (which are bitter) or casein (tastes like paste).

Actually, that makes me bring up a question: can anyone...
Now that I've tried Alternative Apparel I can't see myself buying t shirts from anyone else. Even the 100% cotton is unbelievably butter-soft, to say nothing of the various cotton/poly blends they use. Their feel blows away all the designer tees I've had, including Helmut Lang and Margiela, as well as tees from knitwear specialists like Cruciani and Zanone. The burnout tee is an interesting variation on the plain white t shirt, with a random pattern of sheer and opaque...
Known as a buckle- or cinchback, they're also a classic feature on jeans, especially those made for workers. As for non-denim trousers, I've only seen them on designer stuff. I agree they can be uncomfortable.
I bought so much cool weather clothing on sale in the spring that I can't think of anything I need for the fall...I'm just waiting for the weather to change so I can bring out that stuff.
