How to size jeans and the hidden placket flannel shirt? Really want the light gray tapered jeans, not sure how they fit compared to Uniqlo T000
post #647 of 848

Efff, not much stuff that I'd say is worth it on the sale...

 

Has anyone purchased the navy wool-cashmere coat and can testify to fit or quality? Thinking of that coat or the black coat with the technical layer, but I really don't want to pay like $100 more for a better colour (thoughts? I don't need the technical layer).

KoY, 5354, get that damn coat, it'd be mine if I had more money right now:



Knowledgeable COS wearers, please help me with my order! I need to put it in tomorrow!

reedobandido: I can't say for sure, but if you're 5'11" and usually wear medium (EU48), then small might be too small. Smaller sizes are also shorter. I don't know your weight, but 37 shirts sounds definitely too small as well. I wouldn't recommend sizing down. Normally, I'd say that the tops fits true to size.

2. Sizing the Colorblock geometric sweatshirt in a Small, since it says relaxed fit. Good?

3. Elasticated Panel Trousers in 48, still slim through the thigh/ankle? Won't be too wide on a 32-32.5" waist?

4. Grey cotton flannel shirt? Slim or regular? Thinking a 38 for it, or should I go 37?

I'm thinking that sizing down on the oversized sweatshirt might produce a weird fit. I think you should take your normal size.

I'm 6'2" w a 40 inch chest and wear M tops/shirts, 50 jacket and trousers, 32 in jeans, if that helps.

I mean I wear small in like maybe 60% of brands, in stuff like Uniqlo and Schneider and NDG and Geller etc. I'm shorter and have a smaller chest than you lineate, so maybe small would be right for tees.

I've found that the shirts that come in "numbers sizing", fit exactly TTS. I have a 41 chest and take a 41 in those. The shirt that come in S, M, L are pretty randomly sized, but are usually bigger for their size rather than smaller. I just got one in M when I'm a Large / 41 in most brands.

 

Sizing for the knits depends on the cut. I tried out a bunch of knits recently and took a M in all of them. Didn't try that exact sweatshirt but tried another one which I was also a M in. Large were simply too big and surprisingly with too long arms for me (6'3, 180 lbs). Check my post from a couple of weeks back.

Just my two cents, COS tshirts are pretty much shit. Bought a couple a while ago, a navy and a dark grey one, same size SMALL, and im definitely not happy. Despite being the same size the navy one fits alright, while the dark grey one is like two or three inches longer and a tad roomier, makin it look like a tube vest or something. Also the cut is awful, fabric on the shoulders just next to the neck line on the navy seems to wrap up for some reason which just doesn't look alright. For 15€ id rather pick up an american apparel or uniqlo tee, or even a zara one. Never tried any other of their products but if you want an impartial advice, stay away from their basic tees

I've been looking at those as well, but have learned the hard way never to order pants I haven't tried on first.

post #657 of 848

Tried on a fair bit of cos in a store recently, so here's a few comments:

 

Tee shirts: so many different models and not clear how they fit. Some in size S fit slim, others are really wide and oversized. I wouldn't know from the webshop which to go for.. I got the rolled edges one in small and it fits well. 

 

Coats: the wool/cashmere coat and technical layer coat are really nice. The fabric of both is soft and feels substantial. Honestly couldn't tell the difference between it and winter coats costing double that. The wool/cashmere coat is a very straight, boxy fit, which didn't suit me. I could imagine someone less skinny (I'm 175cm, 60kg) looking better in it. The technical layer coat is awesome; good fit, slimmer and more tailored. Shoulders aren't as sharp as the other coat. Would have gotten it myself if it wasn't black..

The parka coat was a little bell-like on me.. Quite fine fabric again though.

 

Pants: they didn't have the elasticated waist trousers in my size, so can't help there. I did buy these pants: http://www.cosstores.com/Shop/Men/Trousers/Tailored_tapered_trousers/46905-7777552.1#c-24480 and they are just what I've been looking for! Relaxed cut with a taper, slimmer leg than the "cashmere wool trousers" (which I found too wide). The blue black colour is great. Black in most lights, but you can tell it's blue if you have a real black next to it. Recommended!

 

Didn't get to try the flannel shirt yet, but the fabric is nice.
