The trouser version are at a couple of places but only seem to be offered in small sizes, and most got the denim versions. And they run at least a full size small.
In terms of the poly blend though. There's some on the Lemaire webstore and

I think small wouldn’t fit me, probably need a size 50 or 52. So would only denim version have most sizes Available ?

Yeah I need a 52 in them and even those were tight, and i've only saw the 52's in the denim.
Ssense and Matches have sizing charts of the green denim and blue and black denim

Transitioning from the Uniqlo U collaboration as it has some of my favorite items especially the tees & fleece -- I wear their LS tshirts all the time; so, I thought I check out the main line Lemaire.

Does anyone have this Overshirt & can advise on sizing, etc?

What is most flattering about Lemaire pieces for you guys? I've only had a chance to try on a few different pants. I love my string pant a lot. It has a baggy relaxed feel to it but doesn't look sloppy, and I can wear it up higher on the waist to give it a smarter look. The way the pockets are darted(?) into the back end of the pocket opening to keep it laying flat against the leg is a really great attention to detail I appreciate. And I love the high rise.

Just wondering what other people love about the brand, as I'm just getting into it and excited to find more pieces to try on

I have the indigo denim one. I love it, wear it all the time (wearing it today).
It's a simple piece but the cut is great, the fabric is soft from day 1, it has enough little details.
I went true to size (52) and I think that was the right call, I can fit a tee under it comfortably. If you wanted to layer a knit or something under it I think you'd need to size up. I couldn't imagine sizing down at all.
FWIW it seems like the clover and black denim ones are cut a little bit slimmer.

I think you’ve done well starting with pants. They do a great pant. My favorites are the twisted seam from this season and the two-pleats from any season. Lemaire was really ahead of the curve in terms of offering a wider, roomier fit that felt fresh and doable.

Outerwear is their strongest suit IMO. Coats and jackets generously cut but well-tailored in beautiful, hardwearing fabrics. Get yourself a wool kaftan or chesterfield--two of their signatures--and you’re set for life.

Needless to say (but I will), the color palettes are impeccable. I like that they cover their bases with black/navy/grey/brown, but supplement with brighter hues and prints that fit seamlessly into the look. I used to wear all black, and it's only because of Lemaire that I've become receptive to color at all.

Generally, I just really appreciate their restraint. I often see pieces from other brands and that are good...but off just slightly. Could be the shape of something or an unnecessary detail. Doesn’t happen much with Lemaire. Most of their pieces appear exactly as they should be.

Their sensibility is minimal, but never antiseptic. Simultaneously timeless, nostalgic, and current, but never too trendy. Je ne sais quoi. Welcome to the club.

Anybody remember details from when the SS18 printed viscose shirt went on sale? I've always thought it looked like this one shirt YMO wore in concert:
1285198

1285204

I only remember seeing it listed as "multicolor" but I just saw it was once listed as "imprimé ymo." No real point in knowing but it would be cool if it really is.

Hmm, i never saw that. i just checked my tag and it just says multicolour.
It does make sense that YMO would be a reference for Lemaire though.
He's a pretty noted fan of that era of funk/electro/etc
