    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 have no personal opinion in this matter, but as of what was said a few weeks ago on here the United Bamboo was recommended when someone asked for the best fishtail coat.

    I ordered a bunch of cos tees when they opened the US webstore and didn't keep any at all. They ran small and I wasn't impressed with the material on any of them. The white tees were paper thin and the necks on a couple other tees had the bacon neck thing.

    Thanks, guys. That's exactly what I needed to know. :slayer:

    Looks like I should probably just stick to a sweatshirt and skip everything else.

    I've got a couple of shirts from Cos with elastane in them which makes them very comfortable and they wash quite well. When it comes to their t-shirts I've bought a couple of nice ones while a few others have shrunken after being washed.

    COS have plenty of nice stuff imo, just not in the jeans and t-shirt department
    Knitwear quality always seems pretty good (relative to the price atleast), there are plenty of cool shirts if you don't mind fabrics that usually are pretty thin, construction on outerwear has felt solid for the pieces I've tried on, and if you don't have a really small waist like me, they usually have a few good trouser models too. Accessories are pretty whatever, totally fine though if you like the design.

    The Schneider is cool but the Geller has more character. Also, first one is in cotton, second in wool, depends on the season you want to ear it

    Yak wool and silk. Or do I stick with the more "iconic" chino fabric.

    dude if you have the option of yak wool and silk, why would you turn that down in favor of cotton?

    I'm just afraid it won't be very substantial and it won't drape the same way the cotton ones do? I dunno, I've never really felt a blend like that before. It's also not my first color choice :embar:

    I always really liked those W+H all white hi's, just never got a chance to really see a pair in person.
