    Started buying my first COS items recently and pleasantly surprised by this season. Seems to be a bit of a Lemaire influence?

    Picked up some relaxed pleated trousers for summer and a couple of nice muted color t-shirts. Also saw some collarless shirts (look similar to the UniqloxLemaire ones) and a long boucle cardigan that looked appealing.

    We'll see about the quality in the long run. Still feel the prices could be a tad cheaper for what it is but maybe I'm off base on that.

    Went into the store today and tried on the clean neck jersey jacket:

    Neat jacket, fit well, but I do wish it came in navy or gray.

    Not sure if anyone cares, but to parody what someone else on this thread has reported, at least the outerwear - and this piece specifically - seem to be running somewhat oversized. (This Jacket With Large Pockets has an item description that says it's a relaxed fit.) Interesting anecdote regarding this piece is that it arrived with different buttons than the ones featured in the product shot. When I called the dubious COS CS person, I asked if I was possibly sent an old season item. When I recieved a reply via email, I was told that the item underwent post-production alterations so that this detail was changed when the item actually went into production. To make amends I was offered a 5% discount on my next COS purchase and was offered free return shipping in the event that I did not want the item.

    Anyone familiar with sizing on COS coats that are 36R, 38R, or 40R. That translates to S/M, M/L, and L/XL normally, right. How is the sizing for COS?

    Is there a finite answer for this question?
    Do COS pants fit small?
    Looking for some
    Cheap chinos and trousers to do some DIY alterations to and COS on sale seems like a good shot, but most things that are cheap are only left in 1 size bigger than I normally take in most other labels.
    Thanks

    I take either a 30 or 32 (46 or 48, if talking about COS), and the smaller size has never worked for me for COS (I'm a TTS 32, but obvs mileage varies with diff. brands).

    So, to answer your question, I wouldn't be surprised if going up a size works for you. Sizing down, or rather going for the smaller of two options, has never worked for me for the brand.

    Hope that helps!

    I have the opposite experience.. COS pants usually fit big, even my usual size 46, which are often too big in the waist.

    Can anyone get the website to work in the U.S.?

    Tried on Chrome and iPhone and it does not work. Cannot add anything to cart, every thing is shown in pounds. This has been going on for weeks.

    I remember a month ago when they had the sale I was able to look through pages and add things to cart. Something changed?

    Returned both of these with the swiftness. Even for ~$35 each they weren't worth it, quality was shit.
