Yeah, I might pick it up anyway and I'll post about it here when I get it.

Does anyone know about these? Worth it at retail? I'd want a nice pair of casual black trousers.

I was thinking about those, too. Thoughts appreciated.

I bought these yesterday and am wearing them right now. They look wonderful and very "clean" - the leg has a nice taper, the fabric is fine enough for the price and the pockets lay nicely. They look especially nice cuffed up with no socks and some derbies in this London heat. 

 

However, a warning.

 

The sizing in the waist has been tricky for me. I kept trying between the 32 and 34 and settled on the 34 because the 32 was too tight in the crotch area.

 

However, after a days wear, the elastic in the waist isn't quite strong enough to keep the trousers up on me on the 34. They're slightly better if I tuck my shirt in, but I think I'm going to have to get the waist taken in a bit. I can report back if you like. 

 

On balance I'd say get them. For £70, you can't go wrong. Just try a few sizes first.

lineate cool, post some pics please? smile.gif

 

cos jersey textured tees fit almost a size bigger than other cos relaxed fit tees. if you're between sizes, size down shog[1].gif

 

round-neck hoodie did not work. regular fit was like two sizes too big. I had to return it.

I wouldn't call it lightweight exactly. It's supple, but has a really nice feel. My wife thinks they look like trousers for a tuxedo. It's actually the heaviest fabric out of the few cotton trousers that I own. However, I did wear them through the absurd 30-ish London heat the last few days and was perfectly comfy in them, cuffed at the ankle with a white tee and derbies. 

 

Because of the heat, I had to wash them. I can hook you up with measurements shortly. 

 

djt00 - I will try to grab a picture for you shortly as well. I am afraid that the slight sheen of the fabric won't photograph well, but we'll see.

Also - has anyone been to one of the events at the Serpentine Gallery?

 

I went to the launch night and found the installation really suited the brand. I went to another event at the same space a few weeks earlier that didn't gel as well.

I'm 5' 7" and have a 28 inch waist. will a size small fit me in sweaters or will it be to big? Cant just order and return as i'm in the us.
post #565 of 843

On my 34/50 trousers, the hem is about 17 cm. 

 

 

 

Sorry for the cramped shot, but here's the fit on them. Mind you, I've cuffed the hem and am wearing them at my natural waist.

Details of new stuff that caught my eye.  Some really nice items.  WIll probably pick up a couple of pieces so i'll report back.

post #567 of 843

The two middle ones look awesome. Man I love cos.

post #568 of 843

Yeah, i really love what i'm seeing for this autumn / winter and it's only been a few items.  I hope they do some interesting trousers this season that isn't just denim or relatively simple suiting.  Something with interesting cut / proportions and nice wool fabric or whatever.  The wool leisure pants last winter was a bit different but the fit was pretty bad.  Hopefully the knitwear above is a sign of (good) things to come.

post #569 of 843

indeed, autumn/winter is always more interesting than spring/summer. i might buy the cotton and wool jumper, detailed pic looks excellent and fits my personal style. http://www.cosstores.com/Shop/Men/New/Cotton_and_wool_jumper/51655-9823948.1#

Ordered gradient Tee, raw edge Tee and the cheap white V-neck. Thinking about buying the elastic waist trousers and some of the knits. I have problems witht he fit sometimes tho. I have 3 knits in S fiting perfect but the two collared shirts I tried in S were too big frown.gif
