Durability is alright, for me at least. I guess you are talking more the current Lemaire collection, but thick moleskine is my personal favorite for cold temps.
It holds up surprisingly well considering it's a cotton jacket.
You mean the winter version with the removable hood? If so, really well. I've worn my one a bunch and I find it wears well and is very functional too. Probably my favorite piece from that collection.
I have this piece in a 50. It's really nice as an overshirt and it's a wool material with I think it's something like 3% silk. The color is beautiful, a green/ olive color with grey flecks throughout.
I guess that all depends on the climate you are wearing it. It's offers similar warmth wool to that of a wool pea coat but the style isn't as tailored obviously, so you loose some body heat that way. However you can layer more because of it too.
I have a Kaftan in grey wool tweed. It's a really great fabric with a nice hand and almost thick bouncy feel to it.
Are those a 50 or 52?
I'm sure the linen blend material is really nice. I guess you would have iron or sew the pleats in to make them more permeant if desired. The resent versions of this pant have a wider hem, but they used to have a stronger taper. My cotton pair certainly has a narrower hem.
I personally wear these on my hips and enjoy the slightly lower crotch. I concur with OccultaVexillum that the cotton is very crisp and stiff, especially for how thin it is, and falls differently after they have been broken in. I also found the pleats fall out (except for up by the waist band) after wearing them a bit which make the pants feel more casual. The wool versions fall and drape well from the get go in my experience. I've never tried the cotton/ linen versions...
Super dope, I've had my eye on that for a while. Hope it works for you, make sure you post a fitpic!
