    ordered two linens sized down (measurements make it seem like they're bigger than last year), so we'll see how those are. dissapointed the navy one isn't as dark as previous year's.

    Anyone know when the next UK sale might be? Kind of want to buy these linen/cotton blazers but it's not even season to wear them yet.

    Did a hot wash with minimal agitation (with a hot presoak as part of the wash cycle) on my selvage denim. still no perceivable shrinkage. Waist did tighten back up to what it was like when boxfresh, but is stretching back out quickly. "unsanforized" but not shrinking? Whatever, it works for me.

    I can't speak to the Uniqlo ones, but my Brooks Brothers linen shirts shrunk more than my cotton ones.

    Is it assumed that most selvedge denim is sanforized? I thought unless specified they were unsanforized.

    I prefer the wider collars than the trendy skinny ones, but that is just my preference. On a casual shirt like that though I would also prefer a button down collar.

    I would assume the opposite, that most selvedge denim is unsanforized. Cheap selvedge denim tends sanforized and I'm surprised by the unsanforized denim at $50

    Are the Airism tees stretchy or should I size up? The p2p looks really small

    indeed, it's weird that this would be (undisclosed) $50 unsanforized denim. However, since it barely shrinks in my experience, i guess they don't have to mention it--in terms of fit and shrinkage, it doesn't matter that it's unsanforized. as for what's more common, i'm not sure it's safe to say that "most" selvage denim is unsanforized, being as selvage denim appears at many pricepoints now. personally, I assume "sanforized unless mentioned otherwise."

    Is the linen shirt slim fit? Does it have the middle pleat in the back? Kinda doesn't look like there is a pleat in the online picture

    Ran over to the store just now to pick up the Linen/Cotton Slim Fit Sports Coat.

    Arms are a little long on me as I had to get a medium, but think they have non-functional button sleeves, so should be able to tailor. Small was too tight on me. Should be a good spring/summer sportscoat.

    Not totally sure I will keep, but will be traveling to a warm climate and thought this would be good for that.

    new oxfords have slightly shorter sleeves. good if you're under 6'0 or so. new cotton-cashmere v-neck sweaters fit well and are warm enough for weather in the low 50s-high 60s, no complaints for $20 on sale.

    linen shirts came in (got white and navy). I sized down from medium to small and I like the fit which is comparable to the flannels. I haven't handled enough premium linen to really gauge the quality but it feels nice and breezy if a lil scratchy (not stiff or rough imo) tho. navy's great, darker than it looks online, but avoid the white as it's completely sheer (even a white v-neck under it looks weird). might pick up a few more colors, overall I'd recommend.

    ^ Thanks for the review. I was going to get some whites but will avoid.

    I should probably mention that I sized down for the flannels too. if you went TTS like a lot of people did, go TTS for these.

    Hi,

    I have been looking for olive green chinos for a while now, and Uniqlo´s vintage chinos seem to fit the bill. My question to all the chino owners: Have you been satisfied with them? Thanks in advance.
