    I picked up the blue denim first but decided to return because 1) it fits small and 2) I'm not a big fan of jeans nowadays

    i great alternative is this seasons indigo chambray Elasticated Waist pants...excellent!

    Do you have those?
    I have been looking at them but wondered what to pair them with. To me the fabric seemed to make it difficult for some reason. Not really a big fan of chambray, but then again my experience with the fabric only covers the typical kind of mid blue chambray shirts.

    I had the same thought when I read chambray but the deep indigo color is excellent. Would be my go to alternative for wearing jeans basically. And I like the overall shape, mid to high rise, comfortable seat and not too severe taper. It's perfect with sneakers or loafers.

    In your guys' experience, do lemaire trousers fit TTS? I purchased a pair of the navy wide leg ones, and found the waist to be quite large. I'm a 46, though i must size down for this particular pant. The reason I ask is because I preordered a pair of the one pleats for this fall season, and am now worried they'll be too large on the waist. Thoughts?

    My waist at the hips measures 34", natural waist higher up is 32". Normal rise pants I usually wear size 50. In the lemaire one pleats a size 48 was correct for me and I wear them higher on the waist.

    For the most part the pants fit large in the waist, I don't necessarily think you need to size down on everything (I go TTS) but you often can get away with going down a size, unless it's the suit pants or a slimmer leg.

    So I'm still looking at the white denim, everywhere makes it look too white though, and I want more of an ecru, but the product shots at Just One Eye make it look like a really nice cream/off-white so now I'm debating them again (coincidentally the just one eye pair are also on FarFetch and appear more optic white there as well, even though it's supposedly the exact same pair from the same retailer).
    Have any of you LA people stopped by JOE and seen these in person?

    I'm also looking for a size 52 in the navy collarless shirt from this season. I ordered one with after the first price drop on TheCorner but there was some mix up and they sent a random sweatshirt instead, by the time I returned it the 52 was gone from everywhere. If anybody has one they don't really want anymore, or if you've seen a 52 at a retailer please let me know. This one:

    @OccultaVexillum I've got the white denim and it's a chalk/ off white colour. I looked up ecru and I wouldn't say it looks like that.

    A few places sell those white denim pants and I think at ssense at 65% off is the cheapest I could find it

    https://www.ssense.com/en-us/men/product/lemaire/off-white-straight-leg-jeans/1388923

    I also love that from experience all the white garments I've got from Lemaire have never been pure/ optic white and lean towards chalk/ off white/ creamy white.

    Thanks man, are they cropped or just a shortish inseam?

    I just got the green rib knit sweater off Barneys. It's insane that it retailed at $805 considering the yak ones are about $500. It is really thick and substantial cotton though, same cut as the yak blend sweaters I have except the sleeves are really long. Colour is really nice, closer to the olives than the verdigris from this season.

    How is the fit @OccultaVexillum ? I usually size up to XL for knits because I like them roomier, but if it's already decently loose-fitting maybe I can get by with a large.

    It's pretty true to size, maybe a little bit on looser side. It's the arms that are huge. I'm 6'2" with long arms and the sleeves extend about 4-5" past my fingertips. I'll try and get a fit pic later.

    Thanks. We're the same height so that's helpful to know. Will give it a try.

    I just received the one pleats and I am a bit conflicted about the fit.

    Size 48 and it feels a bit big everywhere. My stats are 32" waist at the navel where I can wear some high rise pants, and 34" at the hips where I generally wear jeans and so on.
    The waist is too big if I wear them high. Cinched with a belt the fabric folds in a not-so-pretty way. If I wear them on the hips where the pants naturally fall the crotch is quite low.

    The pants have some "slack" in the top block, from the waist to the crotch area and then a full free drape through the leg. Is this how Lemaire's non-slim pants are supposed to fit? With slack I mean that there's room all around the thigh, for example fabric from both legs make contact below the crotch. The waist and upper does not hug the body and feel tailored like some high waist wide fit pants do.

    They sorta fit like this, but with a too big waist and a half break.

    I think I could fit into a size 46 if I wear them high on the waist, but that feels weird as I generally take a size 50 in designers like Our Legacy, Dries and Ann D.

    I know that the sizing of his pants have been discussed before, but I am wondering if you had similar experiences? Did you do anything about it?

    What fabric are they?
    That seems to effect things too.

    82% cotton / 18 % linen.

    Took a few fit pics and they actually don't look too big. Just a relaxed straight leg fit, which is essentially what they are.

    Have you had to take in the waist?
