The pants look like no break to me. It'd be easier if you just showed a picture of how the pants fit you.

I agree with you about the COS look.  I'm not sure what you mean by "standard no break" I don't think there is a standard for no break in pants. I think its about preference.  For example, i wear my pants with no break, Thom Browne style. I think that pants with no break (no matter how extreme) is how you get the clean look your tying to achieve.

I have been shopping all over London for an excellent navy jacket to no avail for weeks now.

Yesterday in COS I see this jacket and end up buying the whole suit. http://www.cosstores.com/Shop/Men/Tailoring/Wool_and_cotton_blazer/46901-4561366.1#c-5934282

The fabric is beautiful and drapes nicely. It's more "blue" irl, especially in natural light. Best of all, the texture of the jacket allows it to be worn wi jeans, other trousers, etc.

Can post pictures after I have the trousers hemmed if interested.

some bits on sale

http://www.cosstores.com/Shop/Men/Sale

Anyone try on the square-neck jumper? the hole looks kind of wide, not sure how it'd look without a shirt underneath.

Really, really good sale for once. Got four things I had on my wishlist, all half off.

Finally, a decent sale! I ordered the Straight Cotton Coat (it's like a mac) http://www.cosstores.com/Shop/Men/Coats_Jackets/Straight_cotton_coat/46909-4561124.1#c-6042689

And a pair of the lightweight raw tapered jeans (not on sale).

Want the quilted gloves, but I'm hoping winter in almost over frown.gif

post #462 of 844
whats the consensus of this versus other SF approved brands?
im looking at blazers and shirts.

I am a L in our legacy shirts and gitman, so am I a 50 or 52 in these?

COS mid season sale has started. Bit underwhelmed with what they've done so far this season though. The cotton / linen shirt and the navy cotton / linen knit look okay.

 

Re sizing above, i'm not sure as i've not bought suiting. I find their shirting to run on the small side and their trousers to run on the big side..., if that's any help....

I have two button down shirts and one lightweight cotton poplin shirt in size 41, and they all fit like a true, slim Large. Very nice cut with slim arms and good length for not tucking. I'm 6'3, 180 lbs, 41 chest, so go TTS unless it's supposed to fit tight or oversized.

However, I find that OL and Gitman shirts fit horrible on me with the super big midsection and short arms, esp on Gitman. COS is cut more slim in the body. I wore a L in OL and Gitman too.

I am 6'2" and weight about 175. I take 34(or 50) in tailored trousers, 32 in jeans and a 40 (or 50) in jackets/outerwear. M for knits and tees. I realise those conversions don't make much sense, but neither does COS sizing.

I find COS really punches above its weight in terms of design, fabrics and construction. Suits are good, shirts and knits are great. I've never had any luck with tees, but some people swear by them.

They're solidly high street, but if you like that clean Jil or Raf look, COS is a good bet.

Buying by proxy could be tough. I find that COS really has to be tried on because of the wonky sizing.
