    Perhaps not a wise move to give too much away, son ;)

    Yes they are Belgraves! In espresso, which can look almost black in a certain light. Quite a versatile colour I've found.

    I recall someone buying the linen shirts from kamakura. How was thefit? Are they designed to be worn casually or tucked in; how's the tail? Thanks

    I have one. Definitely looser than the slim fit models, which kind of works because you don't want them too close to your body. The whole point is to stay cooler after all. Mine has the cutaway collar which I admit I'm not 100% happy with, would like a little more structure. I'd classify them as casual, I still wear them under casual sportcoats, just not with a tie.

    Rokay,

    [​IMG]

    That's their button down white linen in a S. The sleeves could come up perhaps 0.5". I find the length of their 15.75/33 perfect - and the advertised length on these are 34.5" so obviously there's some shrinkage post wash.

    I'd wash/wear these a LOT before getting the sleeves tailored, too.

    I don't tumble dry my clothes, so it's just a cold water/hand wash setting on the washing machine then drip dry on a timber hanger.

    I do have one of me in white O&J chinos and a off-blue linen kamakura I'll upload when I upload it from my phone. Silly picture, but shows the shirt well.

    They

    They look great. My mid is made. How tall are you by the way? Just looking at length, though I'll buy regardless.

    Cheers mate. Also, guys have any recommendations for casual belts? I'm not a fan of the matching belt with shoes when I'm wearing chinos and shirt tucked in. I was thinking perhaps a navy silk or canvas belt, or something with a rep type stripe. Ideally all my chinos would have side adjusters, but alas. Thoughts?

    My only tip is dont go Country Road - I bought a D ring belt from them, did it up and it stretched a whole size.

    So I was at Ted Baker in Chadstone the other day and they had a rope belt in navy that looks pretty snazzy. Grabbed one of them.

    In MJ Bale's Slim Fit I'm a 38, or a 39 Super Slim for the neck size more than anything else.

    But yeah, generally a 38 across every brand I've tried.

    Too kind, old boy.

    So that's a 15.75/33? Which fit?
