decent athletic type look for the spring/summer I guess..

note the shorts are no where as thick as last year. as stated, just the double layered jersey. great for sleeping.

Did you also grab the pocket crew in heather grey? Looks good on you!

I like the crew very much. It's a medium weight. In the sun, the color really shimmers. Only thing, it's supposed to fade...like jeans, I guess. I wore it once, and it's already a lighter blue on each elbow.

careful in case there is an error...but looks legit. $115 aint bad.

Def an error. I popped into the store today to pick up my khaki chinos, and walked out with a ~$200 receipt.

Other things I noticed they got in today.

--Black anti-fit chinos; didn't try them on, but one of the people working there had them on and seemed happy w/ them
--S/S plaid shirt - brown; didn't know the material was so light. It's def a summer shirt. Great color, but a bit too thin for my taste, especially for ~$200
--L/S plaid shirt - orange; same
--Bush pant - olive; really cool pants, light material. Inseam is short. Would dig these as shorts in blue.

They also had a variety of the double layer stuff (hoodies, crews) and the large loop terry hoodie in heather grey. They had the chinos in khaki and brown.

Hrm... can you put the lightness of the L/S plaid shirt in perspective -- would it be wearable in say 50 degree weather?

I felt the short sleeve plaid today (I think it's same material as long sleeve, just different pattern). It was pretty thin, almost like a madras? So you could wear it in 50 degree weather, but maybe with something else on top.

Yeah Holts has them at the same price as Roden but Nomad has them at $225.

Picked up the anti-fits today. Had no intention of copping these because I thought they looked kinda bad in the pics I had seen, but I had a sales person convince me. They are actually very cool, and pictures do them no justice. A couple notes - the green is not the typical olive green that we are used to with the chinos. It's more of an army green I'd say. I also think that it helps the look of the fit in the back if you actually have a butt. Oh yea, and the material is lightweight (don't know what to compare it to).

I don't know how versatile they are really, but pretty ideal for a rolled-up, white sneaks and t-shirt summer type steez.

I'm almost your exact build: 6'3" / 180 right now (gained weight as a dad). I just saw the measurements on Context. They seem decieving to me. The L did not fit as slim as they would imply. It's a trim cut, like all their stuff, but really flattering. I tried on over just an oxford, but I felt like it would work great over a medium-weight sweater. Length-wise it was perfect--hit about mid-thigh.

I think if you planned to wear it over chunkier knits, or a proper fleece jacket, you might want to size up to XL, and you'd probably be fine on length still. If you're in a milder climate where you don't plan to wear it over multiple layers, L is the size.

Kinda surprised this is being released as a spring piece. It's got heft, but it is still just a cotton coat so I suppose it's not a true winter item. Still--so nice. I can see this being a hit for them. Or, at least one of those pieces that's hyped and loved here on the interwebs.... I know I fucking want it. Can't imagine it will last till sale time in June/July but maybe...

I'm 6'0 170lbs... I'm guessing I would go with a medium in the trench... The burnt orange is calling to me as well...

50s? Not by itself. Maybe with an undershirt underneath, but fine if you layer it.

Looking at the pictures at the online retailers, it didn't strike me as a soft-light fabric. But it certainly is. Not sure how to describe it, but it sort of looks and feels like it has been washed and worn over and over again.

^^ What size did you get? And how does the area in the calves feel? Pretty snug eh? Looks pretty good btw!
post #492 of 1933
Thanks. These are 28's. The calf is not that restricting but I don't really have large calves. I could see someone with large legs potentially having difficulty with the pant. Also...the further you sag them the better they look in my opinion. But you can also pull them up to regular height and they just about resemble normal chinos. I think there are a lot of ways to wear them.

Is that the orange henley from this season, slack? if so, what size? i was thinking of getting one but they seem like they run a little short for me. I'm 6'0 about 180, what size henley do you think would work for me?

Thanks!
post #494 of 1933
the henley i'm wearing is a size small. they're actually running long this year - longer than last falls. and bigger all over i think. if I could reorder or return I would get it in an xs. I think at 6' 180 you should be good with a large. more pics...bush pant, double gauze
post #495 of 1933
Not feeling the anti-fit. But probably b/c not a fan from the beginning.

However, those bush pants are boss. I like the navy over the olive.
