Anyone have thoughts on the Sunspel collab for FW? I like the color of the sand rose tops and the floral print is nice

I really like it, i want the navy set to wear as actual pajamas.
I'm just waiting for retailers to get it since the Sunspel store was quite a bit more expensive than other retailers last season.

There's new pieces up on the Lemaire webstore, Ssense and Matches.

I really like the 60's, slightly mod vibe of this season, but I don't know how much of it is actually viable with the way I dress.
It's weird. The bootcut pants with the pressed crease are really cool, but I don't think I'd wear them.

@nighttimm thanks! They're easier to wear than i expected.
Do you want the black denim or plain cotton pair from this season?

You're best bet is probably Japanese stores. They have more adventurous buys and a 46 would be in their size range.

Need Supply Japan has them but theyre still ~550 - http://shop.needsupply.jp/fs/nscj/mens-brands-lemaire/gd3980

Opening Ceremony too and they have a 10% email code - https://www.openingceremony.com/mens/lemaire/twisted-pants-ST216952.html

There's a 48 for cheap on Rak if you want to size up but that's probably too big - https://global.rakuten.com/en/store/kind-u/item/8055000061102/

But yeah i'd check Japanese stores. Need, Toto, Nordstrom and Michel Brisson also don't have their buys online yet either so maybe they;ll show up somewhere else.

@OccultaVexillum appreciate the leads! I'm more interested in the plain cotton twill, but I'm open to either. I think the JP market is indeed the way to go. And the pair on Rak has already been nabbed, so someone agrees.

@MeatFish they are true to size and spacious. Like @nighttimm mentioned a few pages back when I asked, I took a 50 and the waist is probably 17.5” if I was guessing. The waist cinches nicely though with the belt which is a lot longer than the first iterations and actually wraps around the waist twice. I originally tried the 48s which are size down for me and was surprised they fit, But the waist was too tight.

@dieworkwear compared to the wide, straight leg belted pants he did in the tencel. the twisted seam ones have more volume, definitely balloon out more, and the sizing is a bit more vanity cut.
Considering how light and breezy this garment dyed linen is im really surprised with how they hold their shape. They don’t really drape much at all, it’s very structured.
