    I went to the shop in Westfield this morning. The sale stock was still so good and so deeply discounted.

    I just purchased one of the textured silk/viscose tees in the weird blue colour. It's incredible and I'm thinking of grabbing the black and grey as well. For £10 each, I think it would be foolish not to.

    I also picked up the dark navy seersucker blazer. Size 50 fit me bang on. It would have been a great jacket at retail but with 50% off its just insane.

    How long is the tee? Would be great if you could check the measurements.


    Need some basic beater knits for summer and wonder if anyone here tried these on?

    I have washed mine once. In a size medium back length is about 28" from neck. The material is stretchable and kind of hard to measure.

    I'm just 5'6", so rather long and drapy on me as well =D They will shrink a bit after washing. I just measured mine and it was 28" (71cm)

    Alright, thanks guys.

    Gonna order a couple of the tees. I'm 6'3, 42 chest, so I guess a Large should be about right? Want them long and drapey.

    Yeah, I've seen that Dries too. Snowman has it or something similar from Dries. Gonna order the knit and will write back here once I've got it.

    i'm wondering if the listed length of 60cm is really accurate for a medium? seems incredibly short, was gonna order it until I saw that.

    Oh, thanks for the heads up.
    That's way too short for me. If that's accurate, there's no way even a L would fit me. Need them around 70 cm.

    The linen / cotton jumper isn't that great imo. I backed it. It's about 90% cotton and 10% linen. Surprisingly 'heavy' feel to it which gives it quite an awkward shape.., i found it very unflattering. There are also some metallic flecks in it, which either look cool or terrible depending on your preference. Just my experience! Might cop the loose knit though.

    Anyone have any experience with the wool leisure trousers?
    I am a 35~36" waist and I have ordered a large rather than XL because they look like a pretty relaxed fit.

    I bought these yesterday and am wearing them right now. They look wonderful and very "clean" - the leg has a nice taper, the fabric is fine enough for the price and the pockets lay nicely. They look especially nice cuffed up with no socks and some derbies in this London heat.

    However, a warning.

    The sizing in the waist has been tricky for me. I kept trying between the 32 and 34 and settled on the 34 because the 32 was too tight in the crotch area.

    However, after a days wear, the elastic in the waist isn't quite strong enough to keep the trousers up on me on the 34. They're slightly better if I tuck my shirt in, but I think I'm going to have to get the waist taken in a bit. I can report back if you like.

    On balance I'd say get them. For £70, you can't go wrong. Just try a few sizes first.

    sounds really good. is the cotton lightweight? do you think the hem is under 18 cm?
