The Kooples brand

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Has anyone heard of this brand?
Its like across of APC and American Apparel.

I was recently in Paris and walked into a store there. They had really good stuff concerning shirts and tees, especially denim and such.
I tried on a lot of clothing and it ran small.

heres the link to the site:

There are quite a few Kooples stores here in Paris and their advertisements are everywhere. Looks-wise it has a kind of skinny jeans / vintage military / big hair thing going on which reminds me of The Strokes or APC a few years ago. Kids who attended posh schools in the 6th arrondisement used to dress that way before that. It's a good look on youngsters, definitely.

I've never bought anything there so can't comment on quality.

Yeah, definitely saw a few of these stores in Paris. I think the whole gimmick was that the clothing could be worn by either sex? Correct me if I'm wrong. In any case, more of a SW&D thing I think.

No the menswear is different from the womenswear, but the style is very similar.

A friend of mine is a fan of their suits. I am not, the style is very specific (very slim fit, tiny lapels, extra-short jackets).
I haven't examined them with a magnifying glass, but the quality doesn't seem impressive.

There is also a more casual range but I am not familiar with it.

Some body starts a thread three years ago. A total of six posts in those three years. Okay lets play along shog[1].gif

If he tried them on in France and they were sized S/M/L then he likely tried on the wrong size.

It was founded by the sons of the people behind Comptoir des Cotonniers (French bobo women's wear chain).
