When you guys wear your Lemaire pants, what do you do to mitigate wrinkles/creases? I don't want to dry clean mine too frequently, for fear it damaging/weakening the product.

My secret is that I don't wear them at all.

It you have concerns though, spend the few extra bucks and send it to rave fabricare in AZ, USA.

You can pull up the legs when you sit down to mitigate the knee bag.

Hang them up between each wear instead of folding them and putting them into a drawer. If they are excessively wrinkled, you can iron them with the lowest heat setting with a thin towel in between the iron and the fabric to not risk damaging the fabric. Press and hold the iron on the same spot for 10-15 sec, do not pull it across the fabric when ironing.

Additionally, after wearing them you can hang them in the bathroom (from trouser hangers so that the legs hang straight down uninterrupted) while you take a hot shower, and allow ambient steam to release any wrinkles and minor creases.

Just in case there might be Lemaire basics to be had in it, I checked out the Uniqlo U collection in person. Overall impression: Meh. Walked away without buying anything.

It's a lot of very typically Uniqlo basics. Cashmere was super thin and slightly oversized, outerwear seemed to run with slightly wider shoulders in some, narrow in others. Generally nothing I would ever have given a second glance if I didn't know it was something Lemaire worked on. And knowing Lemaire worked on them made me feel disappointed in the entire collection.

On a more serious note, I don't think you should really be concerned with wearing down your pants unless you are not rotating them daily (e.g. shoes). Even then, unless you're hiking or just rolling on the floor for no reason (drunk?), don't worry.

Get them pressed, buy a pair of trouser hangers, and store after use on said hanger. I have other pants that I wear regularly for work and unless I want to keep a perfect crease don't even need to get them pressed regularly. I am at desk all day pretty much and cross my legs whichever way, wrinkles are minimal or it will go away after being hung for a day. (100% wool btw.)

I have a pair of Lemaire Elasticated Waist pants that has a light fade around the left knee but that is also because it is indigo dyed supposedly. It is also some of Lemaire's more casual pants so I personally don't mind it. That said I have a dozen other Lemaire pants in wool or cotton that are single, double pleated or just flat front. TBH I cannot imagine the pants wearing down any faster than the pants I bought from Lands End.

Next Lemaire runway show should be styled by Greg Lauren so we can all worry less about what our gear looks like when it gets janky.

Does anybody have any clue why Lemaire is still listed on the designer index of MrPorter but they haven't actually stocked anything in 3 seasons? It doesn't look like it's on any of the MrP sites for any region.

Email them and ask

😔

They said "we don't have any notes of new items on hand" which doesn't explain anything at all. Just like I asked totokaelo about that size 54 Geller shirt and they said "the label is Japanese 4"...

Emailing Lemaire for a list of stockists isn't helpful either. Inquired two days ago for Canadian stores and the list failed to include two new retailers which I shockingly discovered carry Lemaire.

Can I ask who the other 2 stores you discovered are? Always nice have options which don't have to cross the border
