    Nice picks. I will, no lie, probably purchase all of these. Really digging them.

    Heads up: those Uniqlo linen shirts are great, but full cut. They are not slim by any means. Also, they’re not button down collar and tend to go wonky. Otherwise, great casual shirts.

    JCF has a great price on slim linen button down collar shirts now, though, but in bolder colors.

      I have a Uniqlo linen shirt that’s a slim fit, but I agree that most are not. The JCF linen is better and JC linen is much better. Button down collars don’t seem right for linen shirts, though, imo.

        I’ll also add that H&M has several linen blend (>50% linen) shirts in their spring sale for $15 right now too. Not sure about fit and quality though. I’ve got 2 on their way.

      Oh, and Old Navy has slim linen blend shirts at 40% off right now too. Super bold colors though. Ha! I have a linen problem.

    I’ve just picked myself up a Kmono briefcase for college and it’s going pretty well. It’s a lighter grey, but keeps my laptop and files safe.

    I’m pretty envious the Alternative briefcase isn’t available in the U.K at the moment, as I’d definitely snap that up.

    I’ve tried linin shirts before but always thought they were a bit itchy for my sensitive skin. I’ll have to try them again maybe a linin cotton blend.

    • oobleck

      Agreed. But I find they stop being itchy after the first wash. It’s my favorite cloth now.

      • Zac Silk

        I’ve never given it a second look, but now you’ve said that I definitely will.

    I’m not really a nice wallet guy. I have plenty of them, but I mostly use a cheap nylon wallet. However, I’m really digging that hybrid wallet and now must have one.
