    Kooples has decent Tee design but I hate the fit and fabric.

    It's just fat in the shape of muscles.


    So you have two types of tanker pants now right? Which do you like better? Both of mine are the asymmetric fly ones.

    i don't recommend sizing up. i'm a true 30 and i own 46's which are a little loose in the waist until i wash them.

    Just got this in the mail today, holy shit, quality is way better than expected. I'm very impressed with it. Not sure if it's too aggressive with my wardrobe (would replace with Bless Hoodcoat), but for the price I got it for it's really nice

    I got this, I really like it. Def really good quality I had the chest taken in a little bit and sleeves shortened by an inch but I'm sure you'll like it.

    If you look inside that jacket's left inside pocket, you'll find the index card containing handwritten notes from all the other sfers who wore it. where they went, who they met, what drinks they ordered, etc

    Awesome—thanks, el Bert. I was actually worried about it being too short or tight so that's good to hear.

    Yes, I got the ones off MH and sized up to a 48 from my usual 46 and they're still pretty slim. No way I could have fit in the 46

    Edit - for the regular fly ones.

    Asymmetric fly are definitely more interesting, and the fabric has a softer hand. Cargo trousers are basically just...cargo trousers. I mean, they have some sweet details and stuff (and the construction is pretty nice), but really they're just pants. Not really a bad thing - I mean, they go with everything I own, and the color is really easy. I wouldn't say I prefer either.

    I have a 52 in both. Both pairs are comfortably loose (I cinch the waist tabs fully). That's my usual size, maybe? Sizing is impossible. Now I just buy an XL in everything and am comfortable.

    The Kooples has the dumbest marketing gimmick I've ever heard of but it must work since they're slowly taking over the world, a la Zadig & Voltaire.

    Kooples only for deep discount, or never. Material and quality is very very average. It's not cheap either. It's priced around eg range. It's something you'd buy if u like the hedi/slip aesthetic but can't afford the clothes.
