I like the midweight ones. They are okay for the £.

Found that the heavy weight ones are a bit boxy fitting and don’t suit my style.

mid-weight (170gsm) are the best

Cool was waiting just for this offer!

Personally prefer the 220gsm ones, specifically for their more relaxed\boxy fit

Hi all,

Looking at getting a pair of arket SLIM chinos but they only seem to go down as low as size 46. Am I right in thinking this is equivalent of 32" waist? I'm after 30"

Cheers

46 is definitely smaller than a 32..

I find Arket trousers to fit like COS, ie small for their size in terms of waist and rise. I wear a 30 waist in Nudie, 32 in pretty much all other brands but on most of the Arket trousers I've tried 50 was the most comfortable, 48 at a push

Does anyone have experience of slim chino. Are they good quality? Can anyone recommend similar brands if not.

they are very short which is frustrating. become eve shorter after a wash. probably fine for the manlet crew but I'm disappointed that a scandi brand don't seem to accomodate for their own people

The cotton linen t shirts are properly nice, picked up the khaki today. Really soft feel. Beige seersucker suit is nice too
