We really don't have anything set in stone besides offering our pants in a lighter weight in lighter colors and a lightweight rain coat.

Specific garments, but also a general direction would help out. Do you guys want to play with proportions a little more or is skinny/slim still the way you guys want to go. Colors, fabrics, etc?

Nothing really comes to mind except the basics. For instance, nice slim fitting tapered polos (nothing special, just good fit + quality) and nice tapered shorts that hit slightly at/above the knee.

We also have short sleeve buttondowns planned as well. And post some pics of the shorts you want. How tight is too tight?

I like shorts cut exactly as pants are, but you know, right above the knee. I don't want shorts that are tighter than pants should fit, though. I know people here don't like Theory but I personally dig these shorts:
Khakis, grays, and light blues I think are pretty standard...perhaps pinstripes? I would love to see a cardigan or two, maybe a light basic one and a heavier, more detailed or unusual one. I second solid, basic polos, way too hard to find these days. How do you think a bamboo scarf would work out?

Well-made, slim-fitting shorts would be welcome.

+1 on the polos.

- Slim fit all-around
- Short (to be worn un-tucked: hitting right at/below the belt line)
- Solid colours

I am the happy owner of an MJK green bamboo t-shirt. It's exactly the right length for me. Make it with moar colors and you'll attract similar AA defectors.

I'd love to see a nice light jacket. I've got one in my closet, and it's nice being able to layer in california spring/summers without worrying if you'll be sweltering in 20 minutes.

The import thing about a polo meant to be worn untucked is the shirt tail hem. Excuse me if I don't know the vocabulary but the front and back hem must not be split too deeply and must be equal in length. Also the bottom must not plum out or stretch out and must hug the waist. If a polo had this quality and the collar and sleeves were not too weird I would most certainly buy it.

+1. Expand the color selection (and perhaps offer discounts on buying multiple Ts at once), and you would supplant AA as my t-shirt supplier.

A basic white, slim, short shirt in an interesting fabric-mix. Linnen, bamboo, hemp, sugar cane, weaved white gold etc.
And remember the wooden buttons.

- White linen shirts
- Linen or cotton navy pants (cut to about the ankle ala thom browne)
- Cardigans? I think this could work well with the rest of your line..
- Singlets ala rick owens/julius style but on the cheap.. if thats possible heh.
- Tri-colour shirts?

just suggestions...

I would say a similar fit to a slim-fit/straight leg jean. As in it tapers around the knee but is in no way skin tight with plenty of room to move. The picture provided is actually pretty nice in terms of fit (not sure on color/material though).
