• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

If the military shirt is made of a jersey fabric, I’ll pass on that. I’d rather get the mainline one in the ripstop cotton poplin fabric.
What mainline shirt? I cant find it online.

A bit disappointing if i'm being honest. Fed up with what feels like the same colour palette with small adjustments each season. They really love those brown / camel shades. I just wish they approached other colours with the same subtlety - when we do get blues and greens they're often a bit meh.

Might try the wide fit sweat and some of those elasticated wide fit pants but that's it.

I wish that Trench Coat is just a classic cotton trench. So tired of Lemaire employing blocktech in his coats.

Compared to past seasons, this one feels a bit minimal and indeed just a remix/revisit of the line's classic and familiar favorites, which is still something to like. I do appreciate some of the small changes and the smoky/calm color palette, but agree that it can evolve more. What it all comes down to is how the pieces will be like in person, how the fabric's quality and fit will be. Some items look meh but are nice in person, or nice in photos but meh in person. We shall see on launch day. :)

I do miss the lyocell and milano rib items which were usually present in past seasons, not to mention, also the ULD. They really could've added more to the denim shirting for men (I actually tried on the womens denim shirt and can pass for men since it's modeled after a mens shirt, albeit a bit loose). I also wish they'd have some interesting prints in the future.

Womens line is always more adventurous, so might be worth checking out also if it fits (like the shirt jacket sans the belt and some coats and yes, pants).

Hunting Jacket is big gas. Getting that for sure.
Looks like it's a twill shirt jacket material, might be getting it, too :)

Same thoughts on this also. The blocktech coating has improved over the season but we really don't need another blocktech coat.

The Trucker jacket looks nice. The Hunting jacket looks interesting as well, but I want to see the fabric in person. It looks like a synthetic poly/nylon material. The Denim Work jacket looks good and looks like it has side entry pockets.

The knitted Dry sweater has an interesting weave at the cuffs and ribbing. The Cuban shirt isn’t really my style, but the reverse pleat detail looks nice. If the military shirt is made of a jersey fabric, I’ll pass on that. I’d rather get the mainline one in the ripstop cotton poplin fabric.
Saw the details on the Japanese site on the Hunting jacket, it's 56-44 lyocell-cotton blend, I think like the FW18 work shirts having that gloss feel. The military shirt is indeed jersey in rayon-nylon blend. The texture is interesting, will see how it will be in person.

Yeah the men’s collection does look a little boring with the limited muted pastel colors, but there’s some interesting pieces. The front patch work pants look interesting too. Has the UU line put out a version of OG-107 fatigue pants?

I noticed one of the signature details in the UU line is the curved symmetrical vertical stitching along the placket of his jackets. Does Lemaire do that with his own line?

I think they put out a similar design as the Baker Pants of 19SS.

Apart from that, there's actually a lot of Lemaire's details in his own line that he applies on U, to name a few would be the low pockets on shirts, the slanted pockets on pants, the corozo nut style buttons (but I think it's plastic for U), the marled color fabric on some pieces, wider lapels, the cut of the pants, even the approximation of the fabrics he uses for his own line they try to achieve in Uniqlo fabrics.

just copped the jw Anderson HeatTech pants in size L and they’re too small. Anyone have an xl pair they’d trade me. Also copped the pocket sweater w/ the elbow pads.

Bought today an 'oversized work shirt' from the new collection that seems to be a perfect repro of an OG-107 Fatigue shirt. Really nice Cotton Ripstop, i chose an olive one, but might get some other colors too. In my case the XL don't seem oversized, rather TTS.

I was eyeing this online. The shoulder and chest measurements certainly look oversized. Do you think they are inaccurate?
