    Kiya, what is “100% cotton linen”? I ask as a proud owner of both the LS and SS versions, who doesn’t quite know what they’re made of...

    These look great! I sized down for the test lots, which (I think) are the same cut, and I’m wishing now that I had picked these up and either gone tts or maybe even sized up. It’s cool that you can get such different fits from the same cut. What is that jungle fatigue shirt, btw? Army surplus, or Japanese repro?

    Oh that’s really nice. What is the maximum number of type 3s a guy can own?

    Stevenson Overall Company

    SS19 is now live. (Couldn’t get JDelage’s link to work, but it’s here.) Lots of good stuff — Stevenson is the only menswear outfit I can think of where SS is consistently as good as/better than FW. Really like the Rounder, Swingstar, and Lone Wolf jackets (though doubtful I could pull them off). Those camp shirts with the white squares are great. Summer Knit and Terry Cloth Tees look pretty special. As a big thighed fellow, I’m liking the straight tapered jeans they are offering (Carmel and Imperial). Am I right that this is the first time they’re offering this cut as a part of their regular lineup? (The 714 is just for Self Edge, right?)

    This is an interesting detail. For hang drying? Anywhoo, I was planning on picking up my repaired Iron Hearts from SENY tomorrow. But I really don’t want to walk out the door $400 poorer... Quite the dilemma.

    Stevenson Overall Company

    I own two pairs of jeans by Stevenson (plus 4 pairs of pants) and I really like the fit. My advice: ignore the waist and focus on getting the other measurements right. If you’re ok with a low rise jean, there’s a good chance you can make these work. Maybe it’s my big butt, but I find I don’t strictly need a belt (though I usually wear one). And the details and denim are truly special. I'm not sure if this is their reasoning, but I will say this: these are the only slim fitting, low rise jeans I own that are comfortable to sit down in.

    Kiya, am I correct in assuming I should size down one size on the chambray?

    Those are awesome, Broark. I didn’t know Roy had made cinch back jeans. But it might be a bit risky to post pictures of those back pockets on a public forum...

    Yeah, not complaining at all. But surprised.

    Just got my pair of Boss Overalls. I’m anticipating these will be in heavy rotation this fall. They look <kissing fingers emoji>. Love the high rise. Definitely a fuller cut than I’m used to — I think these are a true straight leg cut — but hey, I’m not as skinny as I once was. And I’m definitely planning on making use of those extra buttons once I find the right accessory. Will post pics when I do. One thing I didn’t even notice until a few days of wear — it’s a feature I’m so used to seeing at this point that I guess I even see it when it isn’t there — is the lack of selvedge. Anyone know the story with that design choice? A pretty bold move!
