looks good but taking the picture from farther away would help to judge fit more

Yo Rob, when I go to NYC, we can ball at Ruckers Park! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif No way they would question our sexuality then, unless we were to ball with double monks on.

Mack, since you asked...personally the polo is a bit too long around the sleeves for my taste. I guess I fall into the group that likes fitted polos. It doesn't look bad overall though, I've seen worse lurking in MC.

I think the wrinkles around your chest in the robot pose look a bid odd.
But maybe it's just the unnatural pose, with crossed arms the whole fit looks a whole lot better.
How does it look in motion?
Regarding polos which aren't super tight on the wearer, like this one on you, I think they look best worn untucked.
Have you tried it?
Maybe undo the first button also.

How comes you guys think the Japan Blues fit similiar to the Rivets?
Looking at the garment measurements provided by Blue Owl and Epaulet, comparing size 28 JBs to size 30 in Rivets they differ a lot:
Waist 31 - 30.5
Rise 9.5 - 10.25
Thigh 9.75 - 11.75
Knee 7.1 - 8.25
Leg opening 6.5 - 7.5

Looking at the given measurement the following JBs and size 29 Momotaros look a lot closer to the Rivets:

Maybe it's just different ways of taking measurements or stretching will change the fit?

quick weekend fit with the papaya rivets. The color is fantastic, and the weight is just about perfect for summer.

 

700

You're looking at the tapered fit, 401. We were comparing it to the "tight straight" fit, 701.

Thanks for the feedback. The sleeve length on the polo is about what I'm used to on short sleeve shirts, perhaps a bit shorter. I agree that they would look better if shorter though.

Thanks for the feedback. I agree that the wrinkles around the chest is a bit odd. I'm not real sure why they are there. Maybe because the shirt is a little bit for me?

I'm not sure how it looks in motion. I guess maybe somewhere in between the two pictures?

I usually wear polos tucked with pants and un-tucked with shorts. I switched to shorts in the afternoon today and also unbuttoned the middle button. It does look fine un-tucked, I think, but to me not much difference compared to tucked.

Dbear,
I compared with the 701, but solely looking at the measurements the 401 is closer to the Rivets than the 701.

momentoftruth,
very nice! Just bookmarked the Papayas because of your picture smile.gif

Will there be a restock in the blue buttondown collar oxford shirt? It's sold out in medium ffffuuuu.gif

The papaya rivets look really great paired with that white polo, momentoftruth. Nicely done casual outfit.

I purchased a pair of navy linen Walts today on Matt's suggestion. They're my first pair of linen pants (linen anything, actually), and I'm pleasantly surprised by how breathable they really are.

How do all of you who have purchased linen pants wash them? Do you have to hand wash them, or can you throw them in the washing machine? How is the shrinkage in comparison to other fabrics?

NYR is correct. Dry cleaning and professional pressing make linen look the best. That said I washed and dried by linen windowpane Walts once. The did shrink, maybe .75 to 1 in the waist and a little in the length. I assume a cold wash and hang dry would create very minimal shrinkage. Washing yourself means they will look wrinkled in a way very different from how linen rumples through wear. Personally I'm not skilled enough with an iron to get them looking good after a wash. Mine are due to be picked up from the cleaners this week.

Enjoy the trousers. Linen is a great fabric. Very tough and very cool.

Where'd you pick up the curious belt buckle?

I get a bit of a "batwing" effect when I raise my arms and there seems to be a bit of excess fabric around the shoulder area for me. But the torso fits the way I like it, and I don't think I'd want it tighter. Epaulet Polo (Click to show)

Man, do I know what that life is about. I got all kinds of comments from all sides, ranging from, "What self-respecting black man plays tennis?" to "That's gotta be the gayest sport in existence." My personal favorite, though, was "Wait... You won?" Because that one meant I was doing something right.
