    Can anyone comment on the quality of COS leather sneakers?

    Thinking of getting these!

    Has anyone had any luck with some COS that isn't very tight in the arms/chest? Tried some stuff on yesterday, but didn't have much time, and it seemed quite tight in the arms - especially the jacket I'd been looking at. I do have ~15 inch arms at 5'9, so if anyone found some stuff that is a bit loose in the arms it'd be nice to know :)

    Has anyone tried the wool cashmere coat? The price is not bad considering the material, but wonder if the construction is solid.[​IMG]

    My tech layer coat from last year has held up really well, no loose threads or anything besides the buttons which I've had to re-attach. Granted, retail was a bit more for that than the one above, but I doubt there's any noticeable difference in construction

    Fabric and construction on that one is fine, if it's the same as last year which it looks like. It's very square/boxy and sharp in the shape and the fabric wont drape much, just so you know. It didn't work for me when I tried it on anyway.

    I've scanned this thread, but haven't really been able to get a sense of how COS fits (maybe because it's pretty inconsistent?). I'm thinking of ordering a shirt and maybe a jacket. In NYC, so can't try on. I'm usually an XL in brands like Surface to Air or APC, a large in other less fitted brands. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks in advance -

    I haven't tried on a whole lot, but my experience was that it was very slim, which is the main reason I haven't bought anything from COS yet, as everything is too tight on me (or too long if I size up).

    Anyone handled the Raglan sleeve coat? Is it worth retail? Looking for a longish wool coat and this looks pretty nice.

    What are COS regular fit Oxford shirts like?

    How is the fit, how is quality compared to cheaper brands like Uniqlo? I wear Uniqlo's slim fit Oxfords now and I'm wondering what fit to expect.

    Also, someone claimed their sleeves are really wide, is this the case?

    This guy reviewed one of the band collar shirts, in addition to some t-shirts and whatnot after the USA online store opened. Based on some of the fits posted, my initial impression of COS shirt[ing] is that it is at least TTS, and possibly a bit large. I have heard others here say different, but I'm not sure if they could be referring to specific cuts. (Also, the guy from the link is relatively smallish, if that helps at all.)

    I tried a regular-fit COS shirt in size M and it felt a bit too big. Normally I wear Uniqlo's Slim OCBDs in M and they fit great.

    I am considering either going for size S or choosing a slim-fit version but I have no idea what size to get as they're in sizes 37/38/39/40/41 etc. I'm 5'9" and my chest size is probably about 39in but still the actual chest width of Uniqlo's Slim OCBDS is about 44in in size M. Any idea what size may be appropriate?

    COS jeans are known around here as being poor quality.

    I've had bad luck with them in past myself – weird cuts, poor stitching, etc – and had previously written them off.

    But my mind has been changed, at least with the one pair I've recently started wearing.

    I was given a pair of the slim tapered jeans about 2 months ago and only started wearing them last week and think they're great.

    They're really simple, but nice details like black coating on the hardware, a button fly, covered internal seams, and a slightly higher rise. The fabric itself is really, really soft and has a nice (almost) shine to it. It's not like a coating or wax or anything, just a retain quality, a shine (don't know how else to put it), to the fabric.

    But the best bit for me is the fit. I'm 6'2" and about 12 stone and, being painfully self aware, kind of carrot shaped.

    This cut is the absolute perfect cut for me. The rise, waist, the taper, the seat all come together in a way that other brands like Acne, APC, or UNIQLO haven't for me.

    Now if COS could just get their shirting game together, I would buy a lot more from them.

    COS Sale has started. Ordered some basic Tees, Trousers and Polo shirts. Let's see what they are like in real life. The quality and fit of COS is very inconsistent IMO.

    I have not had a issue with Quality, for me, the quality has been very good for the price. Fit is another story, but that's what a tailor is for :)

    I've had very mixed experiences regarding their quality and sizing.
    A pair of dark blue trousers turned reddish-blue after the first wash. my M T-shirt is quite big for M, while my M sweater is very tight and short.

    How does the outerwear fit? TTS, varies by model?
