Want a plaid/checked shirt. Looking at this seasons SLP ones but the stock is pretty limited on all sites inc. the SLP site. Anyone find a decent one in XL? Quite like the blue degrade check one

Essex i looked at those and they definitely weren't worth the coin IMO, felt quite cheap and actually looked it too

Are they quite thin? I have one of them bookmarked on Mr P as there's no way I want to spend £400+ on it but if it's flimsy then I won't bother, even with a hefty reduction.

Odd clothing choice for the beach. Maybe he can pair it with some stonewash jeans.

They looked really thin and bedraggled on the catwalk. I think the thickness and hem detail makes them an ideal mid-layer. X it would look Cool with the jeans

Looks like that one is pretty much sold out apart from US rape price websites

Yep very thin and again not worth the coin, even at 50% off they'd still be overpriced imo

Rez, GL is a decent shout but will they have a bit of colour to them. Would assume they're pretty monochrome

yes they are coloured, frayed, etc. just not with the ombre dye. Their webstore is down for some reason but have a look in a few days.

No, you'd get on a the Flying Scotsman though if you rock with a little denim peaked cap

Top one would be cool with some chinos. Bottom would be cool with some flares.
