    I was thinking about getting one, but I can't tell from the site if they are ventless, single or double vent. Which are they?

    Anyone tried the relaxed linen/cotton pants? Considering a pair in off-white.

    Edit: Placed an order. We'll see how they go. Can't wait for summer.

    just noticed those pants on the site the other day, curious to hear what they're like.

    also, has anyone tried these shirts? i'm wondering if they're just a point-collar version of the slim OCBDs.

    Picked up slim linen jacket and three cotton-cashmere blend cardigans, and also proxied the dark gray slim cotton jacket (crossing fingers that NY stores still have one left).

    I am hoping these cotton blend cardigans don't pill. Going to toss the wool/poly blend from FW13.

    I reexamined my old lambswool sweaters from FW11 or 12 and they are all smooth, no pilling. 100% lambswool... I am guessing that the poly blend is what causing pilling.

    I ordered and returned the cotton/cashmere cardigans. Found they draped poorly/awkwardly on me due to the extremely light material. Just didn't look good. Sounds like they worked better for you though gettoasty.

    I'm sticking with my lambswool/poly cardigans for now.

    Need to check out those linen/cotton pants in person, almost hitting 80 these days.

    I remember spacepope cut off the collar on one of the linen shirts to turn it into a mandarin collar and it looked pretty good so I did it to one of my navy shirts last night since I have two. Realized today I actually grabbed a black shirt lol. Turned out well though.

    I haven't received the cotton-cashmere cardigans, yet. Just ordered today. It's actually getting a little warm for the wool blend here. Ideally, I'd prefer a light knit i.e. cardigan and wear my coats during FW.

    @ChetB How was the overall material? Can you tell whether it will pill? Cotton should not from my experience, regardless of grade. The 10% cashmere is a gimmick IMO and I hope it doesn't make that big of a difference. I'd only see it pill because of the blended cashmere fibers.
