Nice.
So looks like wrapover shirt is TTS even though it measures big.
Would you size down on the judo pants since the waist is loose and can be cinched?

I just received the short sleeve shirt (open cotton shirting) in black size M and the judo pants in size M. For me personally, the shirt fits as intended but the pants don't as they are quite oversized. I am thinking of ordering a size S. Please note that size M for pants for me are normally a bit too small but in the case of the judo pant not even close, in fact they are on the larger side. I'm 1.81m

Thanks! This is kind of where my head is at. I can be anywhere from a 48 to 52 in Lemaire pants but TTS is generally a 50. But with the pants that have a large cinch waist I have gone with a 48 in the past (military pants, large pants, string pants...)

Picked up the flared wide-leg jeans and pyjama top in tobacco. Really dig the jeans -- these will be fun to step out in once things open up again. They have a really crisp feel and the cut is retro in a good way. Sit high on the waist but aren't egregiously tight in the crotch, like some other Lemaire jeans I've tried. Am less certain on the pyjama top. I wish the arms were a little bit shorter/less billowy -- they make me feel like I'm a kid trying my dad's clothes -- although I like the way the piece looks tucked in. Breaks up some of the boxiness. Color is beautiful, as are the brushed corozo buttons, although I will say it looks more orange on the website than IRL -- maybe just my monitor

Maybe try rolling the sleeves a bit. I feel the same with the convertible collar shirts and the sleeves look like a very similar pattern. Sometimes the half sleeve works but most of the time I fold it back once.

i prefer the untucked version, at least from your photos, but might be due to my unfamiliarness with that high a waist.I actually love the chill look of the untucked pic!

Thanks for the feedback! I might just be getting used to the super boxy fit
