Take a general sweep / look instore yesterday and all the JWA stuff are on varying amounts of discount.

In the end i kop the cargo shorts and the linen modal blend shirts.
The off whitish chambray shirt came close but I decided to wait for a further markdown. :)
OH..and I got more JW socks :p ..they were like $1.50 each basically.

Wanted the active pants but there wasn't any in my size unfortunately.

Anyone started living in the drawing string pants yet? How do they measure up? They look big and I think i could do a sizing down.

Again, I forgot to mention that I also did get the white chambray in the end, even if I was a bit concerned about some loose threads with the ones I fit.

I also did try the drawstring pants, it's a bit slim for me (since I have big thighs), it kinda fits like the active pants, but I did size up on that for better movement. Aside from the JWA drawstring, I'd highly recommend the U cotton linen pants again and the U womens parachute pants - really good, you can take your size in mens.

Anyone have any feedback on the oversized polo? Thanks in advance.

Both I suppose
I’ve bought both in multiple colorways. The jersey version is similar to the last collab with Engineered Garments but not as heavy and with a true polo collar. It’s more oversized than the pique version and drapes better. The pique version is more boxy and heavier. I like both but feel the jersey version is best for warm weather and really gives that oversized look that I prefer. Pique is if you want a polo but not have it be tight but not so loose it gets into granddad golfer territory.

I like both indeed for the price point. Thanks for detailed response. Living in a warm place I guess I should go for the jersey polo

Agree with the U Airism tees! Looking forward for the new colors coming for the next season. Another must kop for me would be the U Cotton Linen Wide Fit Pants. I just got all the colors and have been using them often - I like how they still look great even after a day's wear because they don't have much wrinkles like your regular linen pants.

As for JW Anderson, I am actually surprised by myself with the items I got after initially getting underwhelmed from my initial review post. I may have made an unfair judgment since I these are items I didn't try during that time.

My top three would be:

The Washed Cotton Work Jacket (in yellow, which I got with the matching cargo shorts. It's pretty light and if you look inside, you'll see the original unwashed camel color, would be interesting if they released an unwashed version, although this wash gives it some character).

The Oxford Shirt (initially looks like any oxford shirt but I kind of like the asymmetrical detail stitch, and the oxford fabric feels better than the first JWA version with the plaid lining), and;

The Extra Fine Broad Cloth Long Sleeve Shirt because of the wide fit and square hem, (the simple gauntlet detail is also nice and one of the nicer made shirts, this one was really popular in Japan and hyped by a lot of Japanese bloggers since they have this super oversized shirt trend). I recommend taking all TTS for these even if they might feel loose.

I also got to try the Jersey shirt, it's actually good, but didn't have the color in the size I want so I let it go. Then I also got the Active pants because of the details and the patterned Sweatshirt (that Jonathan also wore on his Soho store launch interview, it's a bit thinner than the U or mainline sweats) on deep discount.

There's quite a lot of good items this season, even if at first they look so ordinary.
How would you style that kind of light brown jacket? I'm new to fashion so i can only think of mixing it with a white tee + jeans or blue tee + white pant

Brown & earth tones seems to be on an arch lately. With a brown jacket, a muted pink and beige trousers and black sneakers can lift up your day. I'm sure there will be other viable options though!

It's quite a versatile color, I've actually combined it with various items, generally darker colors to contrast it, but Nylon's suggestion is indeed refreshing! Just have fun with it. :

How are these season's U tee's?
Did they shrink after 2-3 washes? Might have to go up a size following feedback.

Also got the U Airism Tees in the new colors (mustard, light brown, gray) and they look good! Same new colors applied on the U L/S pocket tees, but the natural color is a nice one.
