    Maybe I've just missed a thread, but is there no love for Our Legacy on here? Been buying for a few seasons now, and so impressed with the quality, fit (maybe not so much on the chinos, and not tried the denim) and variety they're putting out. They're not trying to change the wheel, but they're perfect if you want some really nice basics. Their country denim shirt from last season is one of my favourite pieces of clothing. And this season I've picked up: [​IMG] and [​IMG] And love both. I think the winter look to the last one has put people off, but the material is very light so it's not really a problem and the raspberry looks great up close. Considering a couple more shirts if I can get the cash together. My only gripe is the sizing can be a bit crazy over seasons and between shirts.

    If anybody is interested, we now have Our Legacy at Stel's. We have the shirt in the second picture. The fabrics that they use are amazing!

    We will have it up on our website in a couple of weeks.

    But really.. every poster should think twice and thrice
    and use the "search" function before creating threads that already exist.

    Great looking shirts - far too expensive.

    Except they are not $150, not for the showcased shirts, two of which appear above. Minimum $210 to $250. At least according to Tres Bien, Oi Polloi, and the like.

    We just got our first shipment from Our Legacy and i'm really happy with all of it. I had never had an opportunity to handle a lot of their stuff until now and i'm totally impressed with the quality and cuts. Our Spring order was quite small, but we just placed one for Fall that is considerably larger.

    I get that the stuff isn't exactly cheap, but i'm surprised to hear complaints about the price. For what you get, and where the brand is placed, i think it's an exceptional value. A lot of what makes the pieces so great are the fabrics and treatments, which i guess don't translate well in pictures always, but if you felt and tried the stuff on i doubt anyone would think it was too expensive. The Shirting varies quite a bit in price, but for example, the two styles we have in store right now come in at a relatively low $160 (CAD) and $185 (CAD).

    Plus i can't remember the last time a brand had me this excited about washed jeans.

    I've started to realize that spending $80-$160 is the range you gotta dish out to get a nice button up. And it tends to be worth it.

    ^ yup, OL's shirts and overall brand direction is awesome. jcrew dudes step it up. The 20%off vat at tbn makes everything a pretty good value. Fred Segal in Santa Monica stocks OL.

    Way slimmer, though it seems to vary shirt to shirt. Here are measurements for the Placket Shirt in Rinsed Wash Sz. S: Shoulder - 17 Chest - 20.75 Sleeve - 25 Length - 29.75

    I'm surprised you're surprised. I agree that they are an exciting brand, and I'll post here what I posted in another thread:

    I can't get over how awesome Our Legacy's color patterns are. But what are these materials? They've got graininess. Are they linen or madras?

    In other words, those 3 shirts are some of the coolest shirts I've seen. BUT, where are you getting "exceptional" value from? Good value maybe, but exceptional, really? Where is the brand placed? Similar to EG and Gitman? Well those three shirts (and, let's face it, those are THE three shirts of the season that matter) are similarly priced as EG's most expensive selection on Context and $50 to $100 more than the highest priced Gitman on context. Where is the exceptional value in relation to their brand placement? Similar value? Yes. Good value? Okay. Exceptional value? No.

    The fabrics are definitely much superior to Gitman.
