very much enjoyed being in Denmark and actually having a city to bike to and a high street to walk along

Copenhagen high streets were cancer, as it should be - Louis Vuitton and Chanel with the likes of Ecco, Sketchers', about 14 H&M's, and the like. Very reminiscent of Union Square SF and probably similar to the parts of 5th Avenue that taxi's avoid driving through. Choking on the (wonderful) smell of street food and the unappreciated jazz of street musicians, my brother and I didn't spend long enough in the central square to see the fountain I can assume three buses of Asian families were sitting on. We walked into Illum which was honestly the tumor of town just to check out the downstairs grocery store and make the city more exciting by enjoying some 11% alcohol beers. I got carded, but 16 years old cuts it in Denmark. 16 years old.

Anyway, nearby central square is a little more enjoyable side street with Han Kjøbenhavn, Norse Store, and Acne Studios all within a fat man's sprint. In the north of the city (quick Dansk lesson, Copenhagen is positioned on Sjælland a bit like Chicago, the North is the rich side) was a cute little street with Acne Archive, Carhartt WIP, a designer consigner run by a bald gay dutch fellow who taught me to say Dries Van Noten, and several very cool boutiques. But that's not what this thread is about.

Odense was actually an underwhelming setting. Maybe I just never found the cool boutique, but I think they just didn't exist. I did get to look around COS, which had a very nice facade and interior. It was hard to walk away from their sale section with some cool socks (70/28 cotton raylon :S), rip off Pier Wu pocket tees, club collar button-ups, and very proper outerwear - but with VAT I decided to save the crowns and keep walking. Like the rest of Denmark, Odense hosted roughly as many H&M's as people.

I'd be lying to say we spent long in Aarhus but I did spend a good two hours looking around Stoy Munkholm.

Woah these look so cool. Ultra light down collarless jackets! Could be really good for autumn or even a layer under another jacket in winter. Not sure which colour i'll go for... i like the blue but i think the olive is more me????! Always put off a bit by how shiny they look in the pics on the site but hopefully it's not as bad irl (???)

Also, has anyone had experience with their selvedge denim?

Image Image

Pretty much have no denim so i'm kinda tempted to give them a try.

Well, for Odense we don't have much, but we have some. COS, as you knew, but we have some other good shops:

Dr. Adams Wood wood, Kenzo, A. Wang, Gitman bros, Norse, CDG play, Acne + more http://www.dr-adams.dk.

Weekday Chain-store, but some nice stuff in between, used to have high-price "goth-ninja" peices, but they were always on sale and never seemed to sell.

SKATE HOUSE A bit of Carhartt WIP and some Vans.

Magasin More of a dad-store, but have some alright stuff in between, but far more miss than hit. Good for suiting I'd suppose, but expensive.

Samsoe&Samsoe Also more miss than hit, but has some very clean pieces, however fairly boring, COS is a better version.

Plus more random stores which won't have many known designers, but might have some good stuff in between a load of boring shit.

But since it's a town of ~100k, it's mostly OBEY and other very mainstream brands being sold in most stores.

FYI There's about 175k people in Odense.

H&M has their CLAWS around Denmark, it got to the point where no matter which town we drove through or visited, we could find their high street by the H&M placement. We'd say oh, we're still in civilization, and point to the shining two-floor H&M. The same with 7/11, but I can't hate them for that ;-).

I don't think I saw one in Gillileje? But they're opening up this big mall on their canal, so I have no doubt.

reacting that strongly is baffling. at worst they're semi bland/innocuous

(putting a zip inside of a side slit pocket on trews is genius tho)

So my Uniqlo stuff came. Jeans aren't for me. Firstly they're way too small. I thought Uniqlo were vanity sized and i was sure i looked at the measurements when i ordered a 29" but i could hardly get them on when they got up to my thighs (and i'm pretty slim).... rest of the leg kinda flapped all over the place :\ denim looked fine enough for the price (no expert). Might size up and try again another time. Kinda hate 'new' looking denim though.

Ultra light down is quite cool and will probably keep. Never handled it before but now i understand why they call it ultra light... really like that it's collarless and should look cool over roll necks come autumn :D arms are a bit bulky though, but not too bad. It will also work as a layer under my OL hazard parka and actually looks pretty cool. The green / olive is nice too.

@rublev what size waist do you normally wear? Still thinking I might get a pair myself just to try. What do you mean by the res of the leg flapping all oven the place?

topman aw14 style editorial seems to be really pushing the elongated t-shirt. three elongated long-sleeve tees (straight hem with zip; curved hem; and a baseball-style b+w raglan sleeve thing) and a short sleeve elongated tee with a cut which, judging by the photo, is designed to be a topman attempt at 'drapey' stuff.

trying to push ripped jeans as well by the looks of it (i could be wrong, but i don't remember seeing (m)any ripped jeans at topman recently).

also, they're stocking an egyptian cotton button up at just under £40, which sounds like an okay deal, but being topman it probably won't be

ZARA DARK PONCHO is really amazing because who has the guts to call something a DARK PONCHO.

DARK PONCHO sounds like the Spanish translation of a 80s anime villain.

H&M $20 denim is the biggest non-sale bargain out there.

@bueno i'm usually anything between a 29", 30", 31", small, 46 etc. I'd say i'm generally a true 30" but i only own about 5 pairs of trousers. By flapping i just meant it wasn't a very flattering fit. The legs kinda jutted out in different directions but that was probably also down to be not getting them onto my waist. They're also unsanforized so that might change what size you end up going for (maybe one up again? no idea). Worth a go if you like the look of them.

I just want a pair of heavy weight worn in faded denim that's loose in the waist / thigh but has a bit of a taper and holds a couple of rolls (no baker). Maybe get some sized up old levis on ebay and taper them?? idk

@Ques

Nah, that COS denim is still far too tight for what i'm after. I've tried a few pairs on before and they're either too tight in the leg or too baggy in the waist when i size up (but not baggy in the the thigh). Thought the denim was pretty thin for the money too :\

Image Image

First thing from the new COS stuff i'd consider getting. Slightly oversized with drop shoulders... so exactly the same knit and cut as last year but in two different colours. Was in a shop yesterday and a lot of things are much better in person but still not good enough to buy. Pretty sure the mens section is also shrinking... confined to a small shadowy corner of the room.

topman selvedge raws are now officially a thing and they're yours for £45.

they've got five different selvedge jeans in (including aforementioned raws) with a promo write-up on their site

i'm genuinely curious about the raws

The jeans look pretty decent but shout out to topman for using the all-time classic brutalist housing estate at rowley way for the photoshoot

Man those sky blue ones look like they could be almost exactly what I've been looking for. Hopefully they'll be a little later or fade maybe? Fuck having no money at all
