    Tried on some stuff in-store today.
    FYI, I'm 6'3, 34 waist, 41 chest. Generally take a Large.

    [​IMG]
    Fit me best in size Large. Nice silhuette when worn low. Slight drop crotch and baggy upper with very tapared around the calf and stacking. Fabric is weird though. Spongy and thick like a scuba-sweat material. Would be great in a cotton poplin or something similar.

    [​IMG]
    Straight cut with straight hem. The cut is generous and the arms are long so size down 1 for a good "normal" fit.

    [​IMG]
    Same as the shirt; the typical straight and sculptured COS fit. Size down 1 unless you ant it super boxy in the shoulders and very long arms. One size down was a perfect fit for me, not too short even though I'm tall.

    [​IMG]
    Nice, soft and a bit stretchy cotton. Also fits best 1 size down.

    Took some fit pics of the pieces. Can upload them later.

    Change shipping to United Kingdom at the top left and all the prices convert to £. For what it's worth it's showing as £150 my end...

    i own a few pieces COS pieces (purchased 2012) in medium / 48 - which is generally my size. i'm 6' and (only) 145lbs but i still find them to be slightly on the small / slim side.

    want to kop a few tops / jackets now and am unsure if i should size up to large. how is sizing running this season?

    for example, the shoulder measurement on a knit i'm looking at in medium is only 41cm. the large isn't much bigger.. must be the style, i guess.

    This wool coat w/ removable tech vest looks pretty damn sweet, love all the little KKA style detailing.

    That was a thing?!



    So I'm about to put in an order and am looking for sizing advice. 5'11", ~38" chest, ~17.5" shoulders, 32" waist at hips, usually wear small or medium. Looking at a "relaxed fit" sweatshirt, possibly a knit sweater, those black elasticated trousers and a deep u neck tee. Looking for a slim fit, what do you guys advise?

    I'm less an expert with COS than other here but I have the black waistband trousers. They fit me pretty much spot on in a 46. I wear 29 in APC, Dior and Rick, 30 in Levis. It's very comfortable.

    I have multiple knits/sweatshirts and they are all in S and fit me quite good (I'm a slim 46). However, some are made to fit oversized, so if you don't like it, size down.

    I only had one COS shirt I bought off ebay in S and I didn't like the fit as it was too big or at least not slim enough for my tastes, Tees fit spot on in S tho.

    i think im slightly bigger than you but not much, black elasticated trousers are awesome and fit me perfect in 48, although i like them 'slim not skinny'- you could probably get a 46 if you are desperate to size down :). the tops seem to vary in sizing, but generally i'm a medium. those textured knit sweaters are very nice, particularly the green.

    The wool coat with the tech layer looks really nice but i wish COS would be a little more adventurous with the shape on some of the mens stuff (especially outwear). Women's coats have dropped shoulders, oversized silhouettes, 3/4 sleeves, kimono sleeves, interesting collar shapes etc. I know it's a given that the men's will always be a little more middle of the road but it feels like it's the same cuts each season. That new melange wool blazer isn't bad though - stitching and hidden buttons are a nice touch.

    Anyway, here's some new stuff i do quite like:

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    padded overshirt in technical fabric

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    wool mix trousers

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    wool mix lined parka

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    wool flannel top with raw cut edges

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    flannel shirt with hidden placket

    i wish some of these had dropped when that 20% code was available.

    Not bad if it fits your style.
