Depends on casual fit. Fits real easy into Italian casualwear and early Eidos stuff (less so In Esilio onward).

Can be worn with army chinos and workwear but you should be careful.

I've also asked this is the general "Should I Buy" thread, but does anyone here have any experience with the pieces below (or similar pieces from Christian)?

Polo and blouson are great and fit into most wardrobes. I'd cop -- and have copped their variants that Christian produced.

No experience with the turtleneck.

For the items that are listed as Slim Fit or Fits Slim, be careful...they are slimming around the belly than I'm used to!

I have the blue version of that brown knit and like it. I wouldn't call it overly slim. Kind of a loose body, tbh. But the sleeves have a cuff, which took me about a day or two to get used to. I think the style goes well with chinos and espadrilles or other kinds of slip-on shoes. Sort of easy-going Talented Mr. Ripley vibes.

I've got the brown polo. Absolutely love it, hand on the cotton/linen is really great.

I took my usual size (L) on Christian's advice and Derek describes the fit well, it's a lot roomier in the chest and body than the measurements would suggest.

A familiar face in the new Christian Kimber lookbook. Our own @Gerry Nelson!



Personally like this color palette a lot.

Awesome!

I also love the palette this season.

I've picked up trousers, a polo, and two knits; all in the khaki, cream, forest, and navy colors.

This was a lot of fun to do and the clothes are very comfortable.
How do the carrot fit trousers fit Gerry? Love CKs choice of fabrics for his chinos but I've got no hope of fitting the slimmer garment dyed ones.

I've got the turtleneck and the blue version of the polo. The turtleneck is a great colour and is a normal fit - not slim. Similar with the polo. As Derek said, the sleeves have a cuff which you might not be used to. Also not a slim fit. I'm wearing it here:

The are wider in the hips with a narrower cuff. I'm wearing mine here:


I find them very comfortable but it all depends on your body shape.

Picked up some of the cotton/silk OTC socks recently, I think they're made by Bresciani - really like them and the 2 pack is good for Bresciani socks as an Australian customer.
