what's the quality like on COS? It seems to be ripoff designer stuff at reasonable quality and reasonable price point. One could make anything at any price point, you just have to figure out how to sell it.
You're right, it comes down to explaining to the customer or more succinctly, marketing.
The clothes look nice and the quality looks decent and I'm certainly not going to begrudge people who buy the stuff. It's just the fact that it clearly shows the huge influence that marketing has that kinda saddens me.
We're all brand whores in the end though, I should probably get over it.

 

I don't really disagree with anything you wrote, so I'll just answer your question about COS laugh.gif
Only thing I have by them are those fingerless gloves and those are quite nice, especially at sale-prices, and from what I've read the rest of their collection is kinda mixed. There isn't anything that's plain bad, but some pieces are nicer than others

Works for me.  Different strokes for different folks.

how does a yyph suit remind you of ervell?!
post #80050 of 117670
The entire gray suiting outfit, probably should have been more clearer. Forgot Shah had picked one up. Looks good in real life versus modeled photos (not to say Shah doesn't make a good model for YYPH redface.gif)

Re-porter is also carrying a gray suit, low button gorge, 20-35% off right now (?). There is also a white suit too.
