I'm thinking about a couple of Kamakura linens for work as well. I have some Uniqlo linen shirts and they've held up well in the hot temperatures in Malaysia and Myanmar but they're a little short in the sleeves to wear under a sportscoat.

 

I seem to recall someone actually sending their measurements over to Kamakura for advice on the best cut for them.

Gerry - if you're above a 38 chest I'd be hesitant about ordering a S. You could get away with a 40 if you were a very slim 40. 

 

At $100USD a pop if they require major alterations you might be better off going MTM anyhow.

I bought a S from their Linen range previously, but I don't have any full length fit pictures. The fit is more relaxed than their 15.5/33 - the sleeves are longer (34), so I've had them taken up. Aside from the sleeves I'm hesitant to do any other alterations. 

Cheers, v helpful.

That's a good idea. Might try that. Thanks G!

I was going buy these initially but found others that were on sale; http://www.asos.com/au/ASOS/ASOS-Tassel-Loafers-in-Suede/Prod/pgeproduct.aspx?iid=2909219&SearchQuery=loafers&Rf-700=1001&sh=0&pge=0&pgesize=36&sort=-1&clr=Tansuede

ASOS has some pretty legit stuff from time to time. I think I'm just going to say fcuk it and go all linen errrrrthing this summer.

Linen in summer is great, and I tend to live in either linen shirts or polo shirts on the weekends.

As GN says, Uniqlo linen shirts are great and I picked up quite a few in Japan earlier in the year in a variety of colours - there are a few photos of the haul here.

However, I find that while the collars of the Uniqlo linen shirts are fine for casual wear, they are not so suited to wearing with a tie.

I used to have a fantastic Borrelli sky-blue linen shirt but I wore it so much that the collar and cuffs became quite frayed so it got relegated to beach wear.

I'll have to investigate the Kamakura linen shirts as it looks as though they'll be better suited to wearing with a tie than the Uniqlo shirts are.

I love Uniqlo but they just don't fit me. Combination of being tall and actually lifting has really made it hard to find RTW stuff that fits. It's a shame actually.

No worries - thanks for that. I bought a couple of the New York Slim OCBD shirts and they're great but the sleeves are too long. You can't really tell when they are worn under a jacket.

 

I tend to be a Medium in nearly everything these days and that's what I had planned to go with

Whilst Herringbone doesn't get discussed nearly as much here as it used to be, I thought it worth mentioning that I just received an e-mail from them about a "final clearance" on sale items.

Essentially, it seems that all items in store that were previously reduced by up to 50%, are now reduced by a further 25% - hence, some items are reduced by up to 75%.

I suspect that it's mainly shirts and ties that are reduced, but it could still be worth taking a look.

Careful what you say on the internet.
People might take you seriously.
Sadly, someone will do this.

I believe Foxhound was asking about sizing for the Rain last a few pages back? I'd take your usual size; they're slightly wider along the ball of the foot, but the toebox is still quite slim. More in the review.

 

Beautiful. I'm going for tan.

For what it's worth, I agree with your sizing advice. I take my usual size (UK9) in the Rain last. Whilst it has a nicely chiselled toe, it's generous across the ball of the foot and also has a high instep, which suits my foot well.

I'm on the verge of ordering my pair, so very confused with sizing. Going to go into Henry Bucks again.

I'd love a camo pocket square. I love my digital camo pants, But I'll only wear them casually.

 

What I'm wearing today.

Kent Wang Polo

Acne Roc Chino

Common Project Achilles.


Terrible photo, but It really fits me quite well. I love the collar on the polo.

That in particular. 

 

How does the Inca last compare to lasts in say Barker, Meermin, etc? Should I be comfortable ordering my usual size? My feet are small, but not retarded. I fit a 39.5/40. 

 

why do they not have these in chocolate...?
