    I think COS is generally much better when eyed in person - I've got a 50/50 cotton/poly mix - something on paper I'd avoid like the plague because my general experience with poly fabrics has been they look awful, but it looks fantastic.

    Regarding that gradient sweat - caught my eye in the shop the other day as looking really nice, but having a closer look it kind of looked like you had very strange sweat patches.

    Missed out on the cotton hoodcoat, but the wool one is even better! If you're a 46 conceptionist, I'm gonna fight you for it... [​IMG]

    Problem is I have way to many short jackets/coats already though...

    both of the hoodcoats looks good. I don't need new outerwear but can't promise anything

    received fingerless leather gloves few days ago and they are very nice. actually super nice for the price.

    what is the sizing compared to other SF approved brands? Gitman, Our Legacy. And also the pants size.

    thanks

    COS sizing is more unpredictable than OLs - I have a knit in large that fits a little slimmer than a knit in medium, and neither were intended to be worn oversized.

    there's differences between how the clothes are supposed to fit such as regular, relaxed and slim fit. also size guide will help. I have bought all of my cos clothes in a size small which is my true size and shoes are pretty much true to size as well.

    Most people find the trousers to run a touch big in the waist.
    I'm 34" where I wear trousers and I've got a pair of wool trousers in 48 which fit perfectly (43.5cm / 17.1" waist)

    Shirts generally fit TTS and the t-shirts I've tried are a bit loose. Depends on model though. I have a 41-42 chest and usually take a large. I wear 41 / L / 50 in COS tops.

    The hoodcoat in wool. [​IMG] Tried it on today and I love it. It's very casual (almost feels like a hoodie) but still minimalistic enough to work in a more dressed up way.

    Will have to keep an eye on how many 46s the webshop has left...

    Is it possible to get the lookbook for this fall in high-res as well?

    Also, these zip-boots look interesting:
