Got my order in today. The fabric on the linen over shirt is money. I ordered a size up and still wish it was a bit longer though. But everything I buy off the rack I wish was longer.

Also got the easy pants, again went a size up but still not as relaxed as I was hoping for. Think I’ll keep both though, impressed with what they are. Just not the exact look I was going for

I mostly think of this as a standalone piece. Wear with blues or browns on the bottom. Shorts or light trousers. Sleeves rolled up, pair of JMM's on the face and something summery on the feet and you're in business.
Yeah, I want this for work, but it spent my wad on the first run of linen shirts. It would work well on it's own.

Speaking of the linens, this year's lot (first release) are super soft. Not as substantial, as the collar integrity isn't as nice as seasons past.

Got the rust linen jacket. I might me in a minority but as a night working, vampire ginger I actually need a linen jacket and a hat in the sun. And actually finding a good linen summer jacket is so, so much harder than it should be. The only critique I'd say is there's not enough taper below the draw string. I agree with the sizing advice of going true to size but if you don't want a box fit the drawstring can only get you so far because it can't do anything for the frumpiness on the hips. I did a little guerilla Covid tailoring and added 3 inches to the dart that is in the back already, below the drawstring. That really makes it pop.

This is a before and after. The drawstring is cinched the same amount in both.

That turned out great! Very tempted to pick up aNatural but the rust is nice there. Any comment on the fabric weight?

Damn dude. The way the color scheme is paired here is excellent. A piece that seems to be mostly formal made seem quite informal and looks so so good. I kinda want one but I’m not ginger, or a vampire, or have good luscious long hair so not sure which color would fit me best

Do you have a sample of shades? One mans whiskey could be another man's snuff.
Not at the moment. Once I have an idea, I have to request. The factory makes everything on demand, including colours.

But feel free to post pics of a colour you like. Just make sure it's not a pic from another SF Affiliate.

A poll would probably be easiest, Rick, if you've got a few colors in mind already.

With only two I'd love to see an earth tone as one of the options whether it be chocolate, whiskey, snuff, sand etc. Swatches would help significantly.
