Just ordered the tee direct from Arpenteur, cheaper with the shipping fees from France compared to buying it from the shop in NYC.

Please do post some photos when they show up—that'll probably be all it takes to convince me

Here are the measurements for the size 34. They're a bit big. They've been cold washed; I might try a hot wash + dryer cycle next.

Waist: 36.5, front rise: 14.25, Back rise: 20, Thigh: 13.5, Knee: 10.75.

Figured this was the best place to post since there's no dedicated thread.
Anyone have much experience with Arpenteur? I have one of their Brehat shirts from years ago, but I'm interested in their new collection with CHCM.
Dig this graphic tee but no measurements, might just shoot the shop a message and see if the can provide some.

Edit: The shirt is actually on the Arpenteur webstore with measurements, so never mind. :D
 

I have the moleskin petanque pants (https://www.endclothing.com/gb/arpenteur-petanque-pant-arp-ptp-nyms.html) and they are awesome.  elastic waistband.  i really like them as a chino-ish alternative.  that shirt graphic is cool, they seem to have neat prints each season

Really love French-style comic artists like Herge, and the best comic artist of all time IMO, Moebius.

@istewi

How was the shrinkage on your overcomers? Would you mind giving us a mini review? Going to order from Taobao for the first time soon and I might as well order some jeans when they’re that cheap.

I do not have a pair but I've bought a cdp type 2 jacket as a xmas present for my niece and was very impressed by their quality and denim.

I ordered a pair of Bob Dongs from ebay a few months back. Can I assume they are real (is Bob Dong a brand anyone would fake?) Wearing for the first time today, they seem to be good enough quality.

Nice looking jacket! Yes sociallyincorrect, I like the buttons, pleats both front and back and especially the sleeve design.   vv (we need a down arrow)

Thanks @lance

It’s sort of look like a Type-1 design but the sleeve design looks so different. Am not sure if this is a 30s Lee-inspired jacket.

Not going to lie, I’m kinda into this Freenote bleached western. Not a brand that’s really done it for me before to be honest.Lancaster_Shirt_-_Bleached_Chambray-01-2

@Broark funny you should bring up Freenote, as I've meaning to ask about opinions of some USA brands, including FN. I don't have any first hand experience with any of them, but for some reason FN seams more appealing than some of the others. And for similar unknown reasons, RgT and Tellason are very unappealing to me. Can't really say why...
