Are you guys going to go TTS for the Tourist shirt or size down? I'm debating a 46 or 48...

 

Less taper sound good. Think the 48 will fit me then, since the waist was good, but I might need some extra room in the upper leg. Thanks for the help.

 

I'm gonna go TTS in the Tourist if I decide to get it. Personally prefer a looser fit for short sleeved shirts. Measurements look similar to Uniqlo linen shirts in the same size, which fits me well in a relaxed way.

@AlexInExile

One more question about the Yamada moto pants:

With the longer rise, would you say its a pant that is worn high up on the waist or worn more on the hips so the crotch sits low?

I'm finding with pants that sit high, I need a smaller waist whereas the opposite holds for more dropped crotch styles or shorter rises.

I've been wearing them a little higher on the waist, so I think the 48 is the way to go.

Does anyone have good links to the full lookbooks for the past seasons of Peir? I seem to have a hard time locating some of the seasons.

Also, went back and looked at some of @snowmanxl's past fits (mild creeper factor), and man he has some cool Peir stuff. really envious of those cream colored moto pants (which I now have the matching coat for smile.gif ) and that blue zipper blazer.

Are they not available on the official website? Looking back at the collections, FW13 was so good. That green sweater with the hood...

Only goes back to AW14/15 on the site unfortunately. FW13 is awesome. I had the chance to buy that laser cut sweater but was too broke...many regrets

@Platypus posted the lookbook for Peir Wu FW12 in an old thread

Wow, I don't think I've seen that one before. That FW12 stuff is so nice looking, really like that long zip-cardigan thing.

Just extended my collection with another outerwear piece.

Been wanting this one for a long time so looking forward to it.

 

Coach Jacket - olive khaki - 55% cotton, 45% nylon.

Related, I picked up the Gabardine shirt in both of those photos, it is really nice. Super comfy, thick material with a bit of stretch. I grabbed the 46 (normally a 48) and it still fits a bit loose without being too oversized.

That one is great. Another piece I would like to get eventually.

 

Have been wondering how to size it. The size chart on their web shop suggests it fits big. At other places it mainly seems to be the chest that is big while the shoulder are normal.

It's the hidden placket one in charcoal, not the one with the elasticated chest pocket (although I also got that in green). I think a 48 would be the size for you

Got it yesterday, so have only tried it on briefly.

 

The fabric is more robust than expected, and that is a good thing. I expected it to be thin, drapey and "wet" since that is my experience with 100% nylon fabrics on windbreakers and such. According to the product description it is water resistant, breathable and has a wrinkle and crinkle finish, which I think is accurate. Its fabric resembles cotton in terms of the dry hand, thickness and weight.

 

The fit is good TTS. I would not advise sizing down. Not slim nor baggy. Regular to generous as I think suits this style of jacket. The shoulders are cut a bit wide as well. 

 

The details are nice. I especially like the snap buttons and the construction of the ribbing at the sleeve hems. The back of the shoulder seam is cut open for improved shoulder mobility and (I think) breathability. There are sides vents on the body with snap button closure.

 

Will likely post fits pics some time later.

A not so recent but good article I found.

Not much new, but it gives some insight into the brands history and aesthetic with decent product pictures.

If I am not mistaken it is the current FW16 collection. 

 

The prices mentioned at the end seem wrong though.

Seems like Mr Porter were interested in the brand.

CAPSULE PARIS - PEIR WU

share

Fresh from the Eurostar and a sublime easy-peasy trip to Capsule, was rewarded with a newcomer to the show, from London – Peir Wu.

Originally from Singapore, where Peir attended a Technical Art School, and 10 years in London, with a BA and MA from Central St Martin’s. I had no agenda and combined an impromptu wish list for the UK brands that had come over, with whatever caught my eye. This makes for a very relaxed, near-indulgent fashion week pour moi. And true to form Peir’s designs caught my eye.

A patchwork pocket waistcoat, with unfinished hems to be precise. 8 collections to date, this was her first formal trade show showing, preceded by a number of private shows in Paris. The well-trod ‘safe route’ to showing in Paris often involves, toe-dips in the pool around a key fashion week, with the hopes of syphoning off some of the buying talent already ensconced in nearby venues. Well, what else are you going to do?

The relaxed, easy-going styling was inspired as a ‘travel series’ for different occasions. Waterproof fabrics, breathable, loose-fitting menswear. The finishing on a number of garments resembled a tailor’s fitting stage, the work-in-progress as a finished item, unfinished seams, but carefully styled.

I enjoyed the de-construction and reconstruction on trouser waistbands finding a new form and silhouette to unpick the eye’s lazy following of convention. In Peir’s hands it conveys a dynamic, comfortable modern style aesthetic with a hint of a certain workers uniform with its clean lines, simple uncluttered suit styling, in one color. It was a relief that Peir volunteered “it’s a little bit Mao”, after I had hinted its influence, but she wasn’t wearing it as a badge either, agreeing on the quilted lined waistcoat with its Asian references were there if you wanted it.

There was a wonderful natural feel to the collection combining water-proof nylon fabrics (one of her things – hi-performance/ innovative) with jersey, delivering “Eastern Quietude” she proudly plucks out of the air as a synthesis of what she is all about, what I am looking at on the rails. Good enough for me, a bit of Wittgenstein, un-complicating life, with hundreds of men’s designers and Paris lying in wait.

Peir’s retail prices, £84 for trousers, £123 for jackets is all very reasonable, and sensibly affordable. “Mr Porter came and looked at the range and will follow up.” Best of luck with that and all the buyers who should have stopped by this new designer’s stand. One to watch and clothes I would wear. How do you trip up success, before it passes your stand? “Sometimes you just have to party with the right people.”
