Can anyone comment on fit/quality of the Uniqlo dry comfort (jersey/knit thing) and linen blend blazers? I need some cheap blazers for a trip abroad this summer and wondering if anyone knows if they're worth it.

On the high street side of things, h and m has a nice 55/45 linen/cotton popover shirt. I bought the light gray one and I really like it. Appropriately loose in the body (compared to normal h and m cuts) which I like. Couldn't find it in the web store so picture I took wearing it is in spoiler. Only had this color and navy and black though I think. 25 bucks.

Anyone have experience with Uniqlo's slim fit straight jean? Will it stretch around my big ass and thighs and still have some shape/drape/texture in the calves?

I own 2 pairs, black and indigo, the black one's waist has stretched so much that i need a belt to hold it up. It used to be pretty tight fit around the ass and thighs but it's stretched to a comfortable place now. The indigo one stretched perfectly around the ass and thighs and waist but the only problem is the leg opening is pretty wide compared to the black one.

It's here on the webstore. UK, anyway.

I really want this Our Legacy linen half zip:

There's a pullover version in the same fabric with a pouch pocket at the front and an adjustable drawstring hem. Way cool. Their generation shirt is a more classic look with a stitched down collar... think it's 70% / 30% cotton linen blend.

I also got this Other/Shop linen shirt a few days ago and love it. Kinda oversized but very versatile.

I love linen shirts in summer but can't really get with button downs / oxfords unless they're necessary for work. Half zips / collarless etc, or even closed placket, i'm 'bout that.

question 1: how do the raf X fred perry polos fit? i normally wear large t-shirts but im wondering if i could go xl since the listed measurements on this site seem small for xl (41 chest?) plus maybe ill fill out more over the next few months of lifting

question 2: has anyone bought anything off triads? i mean they seem legit and everything but i have this paranoia about buying things from new websites

size one up on raf perry usually can get away with a small in most brands but even the medium (40) is trim on me and they shrink a little in the wash length wise, also a side note is don't buy any of it retail as 90% will make it to a 1/2 price sale if you're not buying it from a bst/ebay.

triads is legit, fast service, hassle free. nice people would shop with again

What sort of shorts should I look at if I have like a $120 soft budget? Something black, long, and loose I think.

tried that joint on in store, fits quite tts and is built almost like a long over-shirt opposed to a piece of outwear. for £100 or £60 on sale it's a solid buy for the spring/early autumn to achieve that "3 layer" look.
