    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I usually take 29 or so for pants because I'm a sucker for comfort, but an XS up top without question. Guess I'll just keep looking or bite the bullet on TaT. thanks for the info guys

    I have 34" waist and 48 is spot on for me. I think a 46 would be too big for you.

    Anyone here have experience with the knits?

    Considering picking up a basic black one in the alpaca or cashmere mixes.

    I've had good luck with COS knits, minus one black merino v neck that sprung a hole in the armpit.

    Cashmere tends to be quality, at east in my experience. I have a black cashmere hat that actually accidentally found its way into the washing machine and it was absolutely fine (albeit a bit fuzzy).

    Also, I really like the look of the cashmeres with the elbow pads.

    The side-zips look so good in photos, but in store they just look - clunky, both on the shelf and especially on a mannequin with a slim-fit suit (which is how I would wear them).

    Shame.

    Anyone have the wool overcoat and would be willing to give it a little review? would like to know how it looks open, and if it is as short as it looks on the model.

    I've looked at that one too but it's a bit short for my taste as well. Mid thigh would be ideal.
    Would guess that the model 6'2-3 ish and wears a 48 by the looks of body proportions.

    Over the weekend I gave the gradient sweatshirt another go and decided that medium did fit satisfactorily. I also picked up the structured jumper made from washable wool. Very happy with both pieces.

    Beware though, the structured jumper is very structured, slim fitted and short. Not one to wear with low-slung jeans. Looks much better with a shirt underneath than just a tee, imo.

    The structured jumper looks cool. I don't necessary need, but might buy later...

    Also, I just received an email that says there's free shipping on all orders over 100 euros. Code "FREESHIPPING".

    Also should mention that the structured jumper is WARM. It's actually a nice, thick knit not a cheap job. Good buy.
