How heavy is the cotton/linen oxford? Is good in warmer temps? I see it's labeled medium weighti almost did the soft Milano on my newest shirt, but have a mental block against the two buttons on the collar band.
however, that might be my only option going forward. such a shame because the fabrics are killer! the cotton/linen oxford is unbelievable.
Medium is accurate; definitely not light like madras, but it isn't thick like the heavy Oxford cloth.How heavy is the cotton/linen oxford? Is good in warmer temps? I see it's labeled medium weight
Thanks! Seems worth a shotMedium is accurate; definitely not light like madras, but it isn't thick like the heavy Oxford cloth.
I have one that's a few years old, though I'm not sure if it's the exact same cloth (it is the same composition however), and it's one of my favorite warm-weather shirts both with and without a tie if anybody wears ties anymore.
The drape of it is way better pure linen, which is all droopy and sad. This has outstanding linen texture but enough body from the cotton to stand up pretty well. I wear it year-round for that reason.
As ever, it depends on your tolerance for weather. For me (SoCal climate most of the year), I treat the C/L Oxford as a fall/winter fabric. It's certainly airier than a densely woven cotton, and FAR airier than a heavier cotton oxford, but pure linen wears much, much cooler...particularly if you're comparing PC's current offerings.How heavy is the cotton/linen oxford?

Thanks for trying these pants out! Casual Pants are still a newer territory for us so we're continuing to learn here. If the 5-pocket pants and the chinos have the same dimensions one would expect/want them to fit the same. My best guess is that one fabric has less stretch and thus feels tighter. We've also seen that thicker fabrics can feel tighter. So I'm guessing the twill is a slightly heavier/less-stretchy fabric and it's causing the tightness.@Seph
Is there any reason (fabric, construction, etc.) why two pants of the exact same custom size would fit differently? I ordered the Bowery White Stretch Heavy Cotton Chino and the Sullivan Navy Stretch Cotton Twill 5 Pocket Pant. The former fits perfectly--arguably the best fitting pair of pants I've ever owned. The latter feels tight in the waist/hip/upper thigh. Is this expected?
I haven't worn these myself yet, but I asked our stylist and he says your assumption is pretty accurate. They will cuff, but they won't form as hard of a fold as the heavy cotton/stretch pants.Tried searching for this but couldn't find the answer. Forgive me if it's already been asked:
Do the performance chinos cuff? I own some of the heavy cotton chinos and they cuff really well. I don't expect the performance (ie: nylon) version to cuff as well, but I'm hoping they cuff reasonably well. Anybody have any firsthand experience? See here for an example.
That sounds strange. Was it bigger or smaller? Have you contacted customer service about that?Is anyone else having issues where shirts are coming in at measurements way off the saved size? I just ordered a madras and the waist is 0.75” off on the half measure after washing. I get tolerance but 1.5” of excess fabric just seems, well, excessive. I had the same issue with a previous order they had to remake.
Yeah - this is in development and should be available in the next month or so.Hey, Seph -- I know it's a potentially niche option, but would love to see a drawstring option on the pants (a la here, here, or here). There must be an audience for it if there are so many iterations popping up, and it's definitely a look I think matches well with the latest work from home trends and blends 2021 comfort aesthetic with classic styling. Just something to consider.
