Anyone washed any of the textured pique long sleeve polos? Was there much shrinkage? I've had bad experiences with similar fabric shrinking a lot in the wash

I have the one-piece collar polo and nope, no noticeable shrinkage after many washes.

Has anyone tried either their Anton trousers or their white flannels? I am thinking of ordering the white flannels or the beige cotton Antons.

Just wondered if anyone had tried either those fabrics or that newish cut.

I second the curiosity about the white flannel. Taking into consideration that it isn't possible to dye wool a true white, is it cream with a yellowish tone when seen in person or close to white?

I couldn't seem to find the fabric on the VBC website either, although I must admit I didn't spend ages looking, i just filtered it by the colour then the weight.

They have a sale beginning on the 7th and the trousers were shown in the email announcing the sale so I may actually give them a try as I haven't tried this fit yet, nor their white flannels. Mr Porter actually still have the Anton in white cotton on the site for £175 too.

Looks to be 25-30% off most items. Do they every mark things down further?

They normally do, historically I think they begin at 30% then slowly over the course of the sale that moves to 30-50%

I am thinking of ordering some Antron trousers to try as I want to try the different cut, about 1/8 of me is tempted to wait for a further reduction as I know it will likely happen, but the rest of me is just too impatient.

Yeah they always go down to 50% off but if you are like me, a size 50/M and 40 in the shirts there is almost never anything interesting in my size at the end of the sale.

48 here and i find the same.

Just ordered two pair of Antons, one I was really unsure of (velvet fabric) but I ordered them in case they sell out haha.

I actually wanted to see how many it would let me add to my basket of the items i picked, I am not sure how accurate that is in terms of stock numbers but each piece was a different number so it could be vaguely accurate. Might not be a bad way to guage how many they have if there is something in particular you are considering.
