    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.

    So yeah, soft and warm wool-mix, well-placed pockets, nice tech-layer and a nice cut makes me happy with my purchase.
    Note, if you're a larger 46 you should probably get the sz 46, I'm a "true 46" wearing two sweatshirts layered in this pic and there's still plenty room to layer (something positive for me since I will have to layer with another knit once it gets colder).
    Vest looks pretty good on it's own too, as does the coat (duh) [​IMG]

    Thanks [​IMG]
    Didn't really look that much at their knits, but everything I saw looked just as good as it does online, so I think you'd be pretty safe going by the close-ups online

    Thanks, and yep it's removable so should work well as a layering piece for when it gets warmer again [​IMG]

    Just received my COS order! A short review of each piece, w/ sizing details:

    -Geometric Panel Sweatshirt: Took a Small as a slim 48, and it fits slim but not tight (except maybe a bit in the forearms), lengths are good. Really nice colors and the fabric is lighter weight but warm. Cool Star Trek vibes

    -Cotton Flannel Shirt: Took a 38, and it runs very slim but TTS, similar to a Schneider IV in a regular cut. Fabric is really nice, very surprised it's not wool. Collar is nice and stiff, placket doesn't twist or anything. Length is perfect to wear untucked.

    -2 U neck tees: Got both in Small, and they fit slim TTS. The white fits me especially well, the grey is slightly tight/short (I think they're from different seasons). Fabric on both is very soft.

    -Elasticated Waist Trousers: Took a 48, I am a true 31-32 waist at around the hips. Really nice feeling/slightly sheeny cotton fabric, with the elastic waist almost unnoticeable. Fit is good in the waist, but a bit loose in the thigh and in the calf, but with a sudden taper of around 6.75" at the hem.

    Only thing I won't be keeping is the trousers, since I'm looking for more of a slim/skinny fit, but anyone looking for more of a slim/office appropriate pair should check them out. PM me if you wanna buy them from me before I post in B&S, I'm just asking exactly what I paid incl. shipping (~$125). Hope this helps someone!

    I got a pair of these last week and they're quite nice. For me, the a size 46 was too large on me (usually a 30-31). I'm going to see if a tailor can add some hooks for a belt because I like the trousers.

    I had my tailor take in the elastic bit on each side, rally tightening the trousers up. Feel really nice now. I think you would be hrd pressed to get a fabric match for loops.

    How thick is the coat?

    I recently got an LLBean parka for days when weather is 10F or below, but I may return that and get the COS coat instead.

    They have done them for the past few seasons but the cut, fabric and colour have been different each season.

    I don't have any measurements, but when I tried a 37 on, it felt a bit smaller than your usual small, say from H&M.
