    I've been so far impressed with their OCBDs and now have them in blue, pink, and white--so impressed that I've decided to abandon my loyalty to other over-priced brands of questionable quality.

    Can anyone pitch in as to how the boxer briefs and socks fit? I wear a 31 in Levi's and am a size small in CK boxer briefs, although I find 2(x)ist size small to be too tight. I also wear size 8 shoes and alot of the one-size-fits-all type of socks tend to run slightly long on me.

    I like the dark green better, plus it's the one MB himself rocks in the promo video.

    Size small in their boxers should be fine, I'm a waist 30/31" and they fit good, any bigger, they'd be too big. As for socks you might struggle, I'm a US10 and their one size socks fit perfect...

    Yeah the sleeves are too small on these. I don't have 18" guns or anything and they feel tight when bending my arms

    Such a stupid question, but what seperates them from the chino shorts?
    As in how is the material different?
    Also, how is the fit. I am looking for something slim but definitely not skinny.

    I would only recommend their wool trousers that seems to be only available in fall. Light enough to still wear year round IMO

    I agree. I've been wearing my Tasmanian wool trousers weekly for a year and they've held up pretty good for the beating I've put them through at work. I'd only recommend the wool trousers.

    I have two pairs of the Tasmanian wool trousers for work and they're great. Ill definitely get the jackets if they come back to make some cheap suits.

    Tasmanian pants just need a taper. If they sold them in fixed lengths + 7" hem, it'd be perfect.

    Yes I need new trousers mine are too tight in the seat now.

    Currently wearing Land's End year round trousers, which are okay but I still prefer the Uniqlo Tasmanian wool. A bit more heftier in hand.

    Agreed.

    I have 4 Tasmanian suits (2 charcoal; 2 navy). Going on 3+ years of almost everyday wear; they still look great, but the fabric is noticeably thinner than most wools.

    Actually looking at other suits, but the 2% elastane in the pants are super comfy.

    ^ Best suit, value-wise. $29 for pants and $59 for the jacket. Keep in mind, those are the sale prices.

    I just hope the coming F/W will not be too much change in terms of fabric and color because I just really need to update the bottoms. Jackets still fit me fine for the most part.

    Otherwise, I would not mind spending money on 1-3 new suits, retail or sale.
