Has anyone tried the current Soutain collar coat? I'm looking for a lightweight showerproof layer that will do over a suit for work.

^I think it's perfect for that. I find it, like other similar jackets(even those from high end brands), to be a bit boxy and roomy so it can be worn over a suit. I wanted to get one and use it more with just a shirt and cotton trousers than with a full on suit and it was much looser than I'd like. Though it probably wouldn't bother me if it was longer like this(also appears to fit very similar to how the Uniqlo one does imo):

when I tried it on in store I had to size down one, and even then still has decent room for a blazer underneath. I didn't find the fabric to be that great, a little too shiny IMO, but on sale it does look like a decent purchase

I don't like the fact that they're 100% synthetic. They used to be made from waterproof cotton. I have a mac from the that's like 3 sears old and still going strong.

I've not found synthetics generally less robust, but the feel and look doesn't tend to be as nice. I suppose with rising cotton prices it was inevitable, but I'd rather pay slightly more for cotton content. Still it remains on my possibles list - I've tried rubber bonded cotton e.g. Macintosh before and it's just too warm for spring/summer.

This has probably been asked and answered before..., but are the current skinny / tapered jeans decent for the money? i need a pair of cheap denim to roll around on the grass in etc and i'm not sure where else to go.

Just ordered a pair of the Black skinny jeans, has everyone who's ordered them lately gotten the shiny/waxy ones? Do they look/feel ok IRL? Does the wax fade?

I sized down one from my true waist (32-->31x34) and got the 34 length for maximum stackage. Really hope the hem is 7" or smaller...

My friend got a few pairs of the new skinny ones in reedo, and he didn't think they were that waxy/shiny looking. And I think that should be good for your waist size, I have a pair in the washed gray (not in this current batch, but I think they are the same non-T000 skinny ones), and I also went with a 31 waist.

These ones? I need a 33 it seems. 32 would work like my current pairs but the rise is too short.

Don't know measurements before but here are the after. Slim fit oxford in L washed on warm and dried on normal:

Chest - 21.75"
Shoulder - 18"
Length - 32"
Sleeve - 26"

Still fits slightly loose/long on me but I'm ok with it, needed a few relaxed fit shirts. Next time I'll try washing/drying on hot.

I kopped the slim oxford in both M and L to compare. I'm 175/6' and the medium fits pretty much perfectly. The only thing is the shoulders are about half an inch narrow for me, but it's not too noticeable. Fabric is really good for the price, not as thick as more expensive overdyes, but still quite substantial. The navy is killer. I just placed my order for the khaki and olive.

The rise measurements are off. They seem to measure to the bottom of the waistband and not the top. Ex - I just got a pair of the white skinny tapered and they're listed as an 8.5 rise but are actually 9.75

I still prefer at least a 10" or more, but thanks!

I don't see the white ones online. =\
