    Just wanted to give you a little feedback on the items I purchased if you're interested:

    White V-Neck (the 15€ one): Fit is perfect on me, it's a slim and slightly longer than usual fit. Sadly, it is very thin and feels a bit cheap (while being very comfortable tho!). I planned to wear it as top layer in summer but I can only use it under shirts because it's too thin for my tastes.

    Gradient Tee : The design is cool and it has some geller vibe. It is cut loose and long and has a slouchy feel. I really like it concerning the design and feel of it. Not sure if it's worth the extra dollars over other COS tshrts but given the fact, that COS has very good value, I'd say that this t-shirt is simply "normal priced" while other COS stuff sometimes is a steal.

    Raw Edge Tee: Really, the perfect Tee for me. I love it so much. It is long, but not too long. It is kind of loose but with the length it has a slim and sporty frame. Also it feels like heaven, very soft. I'm so sad it's only available in grey, I'd buy it in other colors immediately.

    It's not like I'm only comparing this to cheap stuff like H&M, I really prefer this over other higher priced Tees I Got (for example the Margiela Aids Tee, which is def. not worth the price).

    Elastic Waistband Trousers: Those are super cool. I thik I have to hem them but they feel great and look great. While the look is a bit like very tapered suit trousers, the feel is way more stiff and durable, a bit like often washed jeans.

    Again, comparing it to the two pairs of Margiela Trousers I have, I don't really see COS being inferior. The margiela ones are also made in Romania by the way.

    My conclusion on all those products is very good, it adds up to my positive feeling about the knits I bought last winter.

    What I really think is that if COS would have 3 times higher prices and would write "Made in Italy" or something inside, people would be all over it.

    I would like to ask if I could get some feedback on the quality of their new chelsea boots, here .

    I have been looking for a pair of chelsea boots that I would like for a while now but while I would be okay with Loake's pricing I don't see any viable alternatives and I really like these ones. Any comments on quality and durability ?

    I'd get Loakes, especially in this case. The style isn't unique and Loake is well known shoe manufacturer!


    I own two pairs of COS shoe which I don't wear anymore. http://www.cosstores.com/Archive/Round_toe_shoes/25251-652259.1 leather feels stiff and uncomfortable even after months of wearing. (Anyone interested? Size 41.[​IMG])

    The other pair I have is COS black leather shoes. Very comfortable actually. Only reason why I don't wear them more often is because my style has changed.

    I took my "usual size" S, they all fit a bit different but that's how they are designed. If you take the shoulder seams as a reference for the fit, they all fit spot on. I'd say go true to size.

    Thank you for such a detailed reply ! Shame they aren't recommended though. What Loake lines/models would you suggest ? I can't find any chelsea boots on their nicer 1880 line. I'm also open to other brands of similar quality and price of course.

    So if I wear a size 48 in the hooded coat from last winter, what size would I be in COS t shirts and dress shirts? Really want to pick up some things for this fall, but want to get my sizing right.

    I'm a 41-42 chest and a size 50 in all brands I try (except M in uniqlo OCBD).

    Last years hooded coat is slim and a bit snug in the shoulders in a size L. The shirts that come in size 41 fit me perfect.

    Sorry another sizing question. I'm 6 ft 150 lbs, how would I go about sizing for tees, sweatshirts, and the bombers? I like my tops to be long enough for me to sag my jeans a bit. Also any must buys or things to stay away from (besides the jeans).

    It's already started to appear on the site. The picture i posted above, as well as the stuff on the previous page i'm assuming is AW. There is no real on / off thing with COS... the seasons often merge into each other. I'm sure there will be something more official soon, with an mail out etc, though.

    Gradient sweaters are already in stores. So far the same color as last year; black bottom fading into grey.

    rublev: interesting texture. 89 euros and dense wool. this season knits looks pretty good so far.
    don't know about leather gloves. i guess they're coming quite soon...
