Syek hates cos shirting but at the price point I think it's good bang for buck. I notice the improvement over UNIQLO. MOP buttons, some nicer fabrics and so forth. Collars are a bit whatever but servicable (good collars only come in when you start paying dollars) The slim fit ones should be slim enough for you.

Wouldn't go near all saints for it but have no experience.

Thought I'd mention that Muji's 'Labo' line is anonymously designed by Margaret Howell. Sorry if it's been said before, but a lot of people seem to be into her these days and it's a comparatively cheap way to get some of her look. In the UK it's currently only available in the Carnaby Street store. I'm not sure about other countries.

Actually went there today. Wasn't very impressed tbh - the quality is only a marginal improvement over the uniqlo shirts but they're cut exactly the same from what I could tell. At 50 quid I don't think they're good value at all, but I only tried plain whites on. Ocbds were marked down to 35 though.

Cos shirts are almost perfect, the 37s fit me ideally although the fabric is a bit thin. Still, picked a half-hidden placket one for £45. They didn't have the hidden placket ones in my size which made the decision a lot easier. Their CP ripoffs aren't as bad as I thought. Leather is notably worse but if all you're looking for is design and don't mind the patch at the back then they're decent value. Made in Portugal apparently.

looks decent. Budget nanamica in that GQ spread

Damn, where can I find that pattern jacket in the Four-Pins link and that blue bomber in the GQ link? Nowhere to be found on the UK site.

I am liking both of those very much.

COS continues to disappoint... feels like there's not been anything new / interesting in months.

Some new stuff on H&M though.

Satin bomber

Collarless shirt

Pleated pants

Bottom two feel very Lemaire.

Any idea what COS quality is comparable to? Pricing is in kind of a weird spot, will be interesting to see if they fall into the annoying trap of running promo codes all the time, hoping not.

COS quality can be very good. Often made in Turkey or Portugal. Often looks better IRL than on the net. I popped into a store a few weeks back and things i'd thought looked boring where still boring but the texture / fabric was impressive.

Some of it can be a bit hit / miss but what you get for your money compared to everywhere else on the high street is very good. Pricing makes much more sense than places like All Saints or Zara (+ every other high street store).

Treat it like you would jcrew, for the price it's all right but it goes on sale often and that's when it gets good.

they seem ok, i wish there wasn't a pocket but they wear pretty comfortably. size down 1 for sexy fit. has a hang tag which is appreciated, is a little see through, the white isn't a true white and it fits a lot better after a wash.

can see the uniqlo print through the shirt in the back, not a huge deal but u might get unibare'd

Thats exactly how my TTS uniqlo tees fit, which kinda bothers me. A bit too short, and a bit too tight in the shoulders for me, its all personal preference tho. I prefer mine sized up, roomier everywhere and a nice length without being too long. I like my stuff a bit roomy so its all up to you, tts looks fine

Received my common cosjects in the mail today. Can't comment on the quality yet, but from a first impression these aren't too bad. Have leather insoles, shoes are pretty comfy, and leather isn't too bad. They are a little bit roomy; I should have gone down 1 size, but fuck it. We'll see how these last in the long-run.

Some of it looks interesting and i'm sure there's more (at least 10 bomber jackets), but there was some cool stuff from the last two season in the lookbook that never made it to production.

Here's some of the womens. Couldn't find bigger pics:

Sometimes i fee like COS is dead to me. It honestly feels like the majority of this season has been t shirts, polo shirts, chinos, bomber jackets. Maybe my tastes have changed but i remember it being a lot more exciting.

Innit. Still strong trews x knitwear at sale prices though. And if I had to dress for a formal job I'd clean up on their boringwear.

In other news, did anyone win the OTHER store spending spree?
