Yes.
This is the label for a pair of 100% quest cotton, I dry cleaned and it shrank a bit, the fabric became thinner.

This is the label for regular 100% cotton dress trousers. I'm willing to give these a test wash:

Weird, must be due to the lining or something. All mine are machine wash. Side note but I dig the cotton/linen ones. Nice feel, slight stretch in my opinion, lightweight. I'm going to get more. Only thing that scares me if they end up wrinkling bad. Not terrible if they do but kind of a pain.

They definitely wrinkle pretty heavily

I like them as well. I wouldn't worry, they don't wrinkle much due to the cotton blend.

Meh, I'll just have to iron them then I guess
Yeah I iron them every time I wear them, and by the end of the day, they’re pretty wrinkled. I do love the pants though, so I’ll sacrifice a little wrinkling for that

For those who have the cotton linen chinos, anyone try the light yellow? I'm trying to determine what color they are in real life, like if it's truly yellow or more like a dusted khaki. I don't particularly want YELLOW but the khaki almost seems too dark.

Can someone recommend high rise chinos in a similar price point? (in $100 range) Unfortunately, SM doesn't carry them in a khaki color at the moment...

Is it just me or does Spier run out of stuff like super quick now? Like they just dropped some lightweight oxfords and they are already all sold out in my size (15 34 contemporary).

There is a green stripe with a 15 34 contemporary available, so obviously they still make this size. What gives?

If anyone is looking for the light grey herringbone balmacaan from the recent release, I have one for sale. Brand new/never worn with tags, size 44. Shoot me a DM if interested, thanks.
This might be perfect. I wear a 44L sport coat (not S&M sizing, prob a 46 for them). Could you post/DM some measurements (shoulder, chest)? TIA!

Vintage polo Ralph Lauren on eBay. Can often find them new with tags for $40-50. I like the Andrew (double forward pleats), but if you want flat front, look for the Prospect. All have about 11.5-12.5 inch rise.

I think they get stock in periodically. Probably don’t get everything delivered all at once
