Yep working on these slowly, I was hoping to release tropicals for summer but the pattern needs working on a bit and re-sampling first, so it's now going to be an A/W project.
I'm wearing the flat front ones today, and have pleated one sampled too. Around same quality/price as the Howard Yount trousers but improved (IMO) in fit a little with a higher rise (about an inch higher than the HY American) and a slightly fuller leg also to create a more pleasing line (not baggy though). Fabrics from Zignone, one of the big Italian mills and made in Italy also. Stay tuned over the next 6 months.

These look fantastic.

CD, I'm not sure if they were in fact yours, but a few months back when I was at Double Monk I saw dark brown Audley's with a hole in the soul about to sent out to England. If they were yours then the job that's been is incredible. The shoes I saw looked very hacked up.

That certainly sounds like them. I'm ashamed of the state I let them get into.

I've got a pair of C&J Audleys that, whilst topied (quelle horreur!) are very worn in the heels and the insoles could do with being replaced, too. I might look into sending them back for C&J for a refurb, although I suppose that I'd better to check to see if they will actually refurb shoes with topied soles first.

I suppose they would, JM. I don't know for sure but seeing as they replace the outsole in its entirety, it makes sense to me that they would because they can just yank the Topy off and then get to work as normal. If you do find out and the answer is different, please let us all know smile.gif

On a side note: Kent Wang pools, just how slim are they?

And, where do you all get summer chino shorts from? Assuming you wear chino shorts? Most of my shorts started life as trousers and are hemmed come November. Also, I don't like how roomy Lands End shorts are on me, otherwise they'd be a good option.

Yes, was just hoping for some "real world" experience.

The measurements are fairly accurate, You'd need an XL, definitely, and maybe even an XXL. L was too short and tight on me.

I have a long sleeved KW polo and it's pretty slim, especially on the forearms. If you wanted a looser fit, I would suggesting sizing up (and hoping he sends you the right size!) - I ordered an L and got sent an M. In the end, it turned out ok but I'm not sure he would have covered the return shipping had I needed to send it back.

 

I got my chino shorts from Uniqlo when I was back in Malaysia.

kent wang sizing changes between colourways as each fabric has different "stretch" ive found it to be incredibly inconsistent and gave up. Unfortunate because I would love a long sleeve unembellished polo shirt

I know that you can only get them in Oz via a proxy or friend overseas, but Uniqlo's shorts are great. I picked up a few pairs in Japan recently and they're the best-fitting chino shorts I've ever had (bearing in mind that fit is different for each person, of course). Slim without being too tight, quite a bit slimmer than the LE chino shorts, nicely made and they look good, too.

Uniqlo also has a dressier line of shorts that is slimmer than their chino shorts. I tried them on and couldn't do them up, which is a pity as they had a really nice pair of shorts in a navy-and-white, mini-houndstooth check that came with a ribbon belt, too.

Speaking of LE, I think that the shorts from the LE "Canvas" line might be slimmer than the regular LE Tailored line in terms of chinos, so you could always look at them, too.
