True about Archivio, (and I know because I have some and love it) however, I have seen a lot of antique fabrics whilst looking at JAS’s stuff, including a peak lapel blazer that I’m eyeing replete with some beautiful leftover embroidery.

Who amongst the usual suspects makes an easy-wearing linen button-up?

I've looked into PR Patterson, Harnden, Araki Yuu, Hannibal, Atelier Suppan, etc.

I'm looking something that will last a few years, and that's worth sinking some $ into. MA+, CCP, Deepti and L-0 are all probably too tight for my frame.

Thanks!

Forme. But that seems like a very broad question. I take it you've ruled out the designers you've mentioned? Why? Were their button-ups not "easy-wearing" enough?

Thanks! Either hard to get in my size (large) or just cost-prohibitive here in Japan. The Atellier stuff looks nice but $500+ for a white linen shirt just isn’t worth it for me. GBS isn’t crazy-steep compared to what I paid in the US.

I’m just looking for some middle ground and a well-trusted makers that I might not have considered.

Shameless self promotion,

We make some of the best ones in mutilple variations and up to size 54.
We have some on sale now + a Large assortment that we should have released already for SS20

Dude, you need Colina. The designer is a relatively big dude, so the stuff actually fits
Quality is up there with Artisanal brands:

Here's a couple linen shirts

I second Colina.
But always double check measurements.

For linen pieces I'm currently eyeing Atelier Suppan, but I'm broke. COVID got me hard.

Forme D'expression usually make awesome farmer jackets, but I haven't seen it this time around.

John Alexander Skelon at Darklands has some awesome Linen Over-shirt/ Jackets available. And you might be lucky getting the checked SS20 (VII) version.

Thanks, Mojo.
I actually kopped the John Alexander Skelton Irish Linen shirt in black and am getting used to the large fit. It’s more of a shirt/jacket and really beautiful IMO.

I may have to bite the bullet and drop some bank on an Araki Yuu shirt I’ve been obsessing over.

😳

here’s a quick pic of the JAS

I may end up taking some in on the body and the sleeves. But I’m gonna give it some wearing and see how it wants to behave first.

May I ask the references number for this piece? Is it from collection V (SS19)?

Sure. It’s actually from collection VI (CVIST-17). IG link here and a couple of much more natural pics of it worn yesterday below.

After much hemming and hawing I also just kopped the peak lapel (seen here) In antique linen and that should be here next week.

Just cross posting since this belongs here plus additional stuff from a recent purchase. Leon Emanuel Blanck fencing jacket, Rigards sterling silver sunglasses, and Rigards x Geoffrey B Small titanium sunglasses. I'm not much into the more aggressive designed frames and tend to stick to the aviator design.
