    i actually do like how the sole looks. lows (so called round toe shoes) definitely looks better than those boots tho.

    why you didn't like derbys? only reason i havent bought them yet is that they are cherry color lol. then again... i dont have anything but black shoes...

    Round toe shoes had a pretty boring shape from what I remember. The leather looked flat and dull (kinda expected at that price).
    Just looked cheap in general. Not very substantional and too lightweight.

    I haven't got the hooded jacket yet. Will probably take another week since I will send back the first package as soon as I get it.

    I tried on the hooded jacket earlier and I think it's slightly large, but not really to the extent that you need to size down. I bought another short coat last fw, and I'd say this is maybe 2 cm larger in the shoulders.

    Yup, that's the one. It's really tight in the shoulders on me, but in the hoodcoat I had some room. (for a knit perhaps) [​IMG]

    ty both, appreaciate your help. :) although I ordered those cherry round toe shoes and navy hooded wool jacket as well lol. if shoes aren't as nice as usually or jacket don't fit, COS returning is free

    these black lace ups are my fav shoes by a mile. of course they're not best leather on the market but I like the shape. hopefully round toe shoes will be fine

    If any Americans/Canadians/Australians etc. i.e. those not living within Europe, who need a COS proxy, I'm willing to extend my Free Uniqlo UK Proxy service to cover COS as well. Same terms and conditions apply. For more details and references check out the link in my signature. :)

    Thoughts on the peacoat?

    It's 100% wool and has a minimalist look. I like. How about quality and cut though?

    Got my stuff today.

    Hoodcoat is very good. The wool is nicer than expected but the lining is a bit flimsy. Cut is great (slim arms, cropped length, big hood). It is a bit snug over my upper back and shoulders, but I'm pretty built in those areas. Def go TTS. A 52 would probably look sloppy on me and be huge in the midsection. It'll probably stretch a bit like wool blazers do.

    The collarless/hidden placket shirt isn't for me. I think the style is a bit too feminine/looks weird on guys that aren't skinny model look-a-likes.

    That peacoat looks like it has the same outer and cut as the hoodcoat. I'd say go for it.

    i think peacoat is a bit boring style (read: timeless classic), but there's nothing wrong with it! and if it fits, you'll be most likely happy.
