+1 for linen shorts. +10 for a (much) shorter inseam.
What length inseam we talking about here? I just measured my shorts from Uniqlo, They're just about a 9 inch possibly 8.75. Works well

Then I measured my Uniqlo work out shorts which is 7 inch inseam, which ALSO looked good on my 5'10 frame

Ideally 5ish", though that likely wouldn't be widely supported. I think the longest I'd consider tolerable enough to take a chance on would be 7". I feel as though hacking off ~3+" would leave the shorts looking too silly to wear.

Linen High Rise trousers up too.

If anyone's looking to make a complete suit with Cigar Linen trousers, I have a like new and unaltered 42L Cigar Linen sportcoat I'm looking to part with.

I’d love to see linen shorts. The current ones feel like the standard fabrics you can get everywhere else...
Same, I'd get some. It's been a while since I've had linen shorts, and those were drawstring/elastic waisted ones (suuuuuper comfy though)

Posted this before, but linen shorts are confirmed already for this season per Rick. Should be here end of this month to early May

Checked on the popovers... sizing seems to be at least a size larger than the equivalent button down. Is there an inherent difference in fit with the popover pattern? was going to go same size but might size down.

I have one of the older popovers and went with my standard size. It seems like they were made a little looser to fit over your head but works with the style. I am really tempted to buy both even though I don't need more blue shirts...

Popover has to be more generously sized so that you can take it off/put it on

I've never owned the S&M ones, but having owned many other popovers, a little extra fabric isn't bad, since the fabric doesn't give/stretch much when pulling it on (like a polo or t shirt).

FWIW, I ordered both.
