I've had a look online and the rest of their stuff is gash but I'm looking for more of the CP-a-likes if anyone knows where I can source them.

They're the ones in the picture here (not for sale though)

They were previously on sale at Yoox after a bit of a search.

Theirs a really good video from a bloke that reviews them all pretty much against CP's



Id also look at Selected Homme and Zespa as cheaper alternatives. In reality though I ain't seen anything that is "as good as"

not sure if it has been mentioned, and I've not bought any, but bombinate have a decent selection of 'alternatives'. Quite like the look of the aurelien's.
