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!

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.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
