kaftan shirt arrived today - really nice (especially for £45). good fit and the fabric is nice and crinkly. best summer shirt i've come across so far (but i've not looked hard).

thecorner but already sold out.

i guess their swimwear will be nice but there is absolutely no need for them to do even more stuff. completely unnecessary Laughing out loud

got it from the corner last week when they did the extra discount on sale things. good deal.

edit; oops - didn't see you'd replied.

yeah, swimwear seems a bit unnecessary

has anyone seen any tees, plain crew in the same material as they are doing the zip neck ones?

Quick question for those who have the tibet melange perfect tee, is it actually reversible? or is this http://www.oipolloi.com/cache/images/gallery/36847-1–450-auto.jpg a different version?

oipolloi asked for the shirt to be made on the reverse side so it's an oipolloi exclusive Eye-wink

does anyone own some pair of classic chinos in olive?

i like the colour and details but what about the fit? oipolloi wrote slightly tapered fit but in some fit pics they look quite straight.

^ Yeah I've got them although they're too small now Sad I'd say slightly tapered

You not answered your own question then, reasonably straight fit but slightly tapered?

do they look as sacky as they appear on several pictures? the colour is great but i've quite slim legs so i think they might be too wide unfortunately.

for those that have had the linen knit for a while now, what's the sizing like compared to when you got it? got one today and i'm not sure if i should size down… seems like it might stretch quite a bit and it's already 'relaxed' etc

yeah it grows a little bit while you wear it, I think it looks better a little bit loose. I think mine has stretched half a size maybe.

cheers. i got a small and while end says the back measurement is 24.5 mine measures just under 26. pit to pit is a little bigger too …
if it's still to stretch out i'd need an xs Puzzled don't think i'd get that over my head.

i think the linen knit is intended to fit a little loose. would wear it with nothing underneath and just enjoy that it's not too fitted Eye-wink
end sometimes has weird measurements. not the first time they measured something wrong imo.

@primertimers
right about the swimtrunks. i mean i like the look of them but they are massively overpriced. never heard of a smile towel, where is that information from?
