Olive Richmond's have become my go-to for any sort of activity, and are also great to lounge in. Pretty funny since I normally don't even like olive as a color. Love the overdyed, but others are not liking the trail of indigo I end up leaving everywhere.
Have you hot washed them? This hasn’t been an issue for me at all and i wear them 1-2 times a week.

If you all like those short silhouettes I’d go in because they aren’t coming back.
proud to say I got the last pair of shelter shorts in my size and they are *wonderful.* i have a suit-and-tie gig and it’s hard to overstate how much I look forward to putting on my 18 east pieces at the end of the day or the weekend. incredibly thoughtful and comfortable stuff.

Speaking of dye, does anyone have tips on the indigo apamaan and what I should do to minimize the dye going on things? When people say soak, do I just put it under cold water? Do I add anything like vinegar etc...?

I don’t have the Apamaan, but I do have the Double Knees in the same fabric. I just ran a cold rinse and spin cycle in my washing machine and let them hang dry, and have had no problems with dye rubbing off since.

I use a proxy service to get my stuff to the Philippines. Its an additional cost and takes forever but it is what it is.

Does 18 east make fewer bottoms in S/XS vs other sizes? I’ve been looking for Goreckis and other pants in my size in different sites (grailed, ebay, depop, etc.), and the buy-sell thread here and I get the impression that there’s just less of them.

Hopefully they’ll re-release undyed goreckis in the smaller sizes.

Quick fit to showcase/test wear shoes and pants from the archive sale. Western shirt from when they dropped a few weeks ago. I've said it in an earlier post but the pants are amazing. Medium might have fit my personal tastes better but got to work with the 18 East ethos of sizing up and this is not bad at all.

Shoes are different than what I normally wear but they're neat and I cant wait to try to have more fits with them. They do fit big and I wish they had a size 10 during the sale, although thicker socks fixes the problem. Might try an extra insole for warmer weather.

Only had Hancock shorts and the arkair bag before but bought several items from the archive sale.

Mango Hancocks which are always great.

Purple nomad. Went with my true size per rec in the description. Amazing feel and look but sleeves are just a tad short but no big deal.

Baby cord trek pants and green painter double knees. Both amazing and have to echo previous statements that the fabric is way nicer in person than comes through in pictures. Haven’t worn wide leg pants in a while so the double knees will take a while to get used to but definitely see myself wearing them a lot.

I don't think they make XS at all anymore and S in limited quantities only.

I didn't think the Clarks aesthetic was for me, but those shoes look awesome on feet, my goodness.

Edit: Now I want them ?

I empathize completely! I was/am a hypebeast sneaker guy so transitioning into something like the P&B x 18east shoes were a gamble for me but like every other gamble I took to try out the "18 East aesthetic" it turned out amazing.

I hope you'll be able to find a pair because they really look great.
