Quality and sizing on Arket stuff? Ordered the liner and the nylon blouson in a 54. Hopefully they don't run small..

I don’t see the appeal of arket, rubbish name aside why would you buy it when there’s nicer known brands of quality for a similar price range available?

It's for people who are in the know about quality and country of manufacture but can't be arsed looking around for a specific item, like a merino crewneck or slim black jeans, is it not?

I know what you mean though. In all honesty a few of the best things I've found recently are a couple of £20 Shetlands by some dodge made in italy brand in TKMaxx and a £9 John Smedley long sleeve polo in a Cancer Research shop in Alderley Edge. Rather those than an Arket alternative for the price.

£50 Selvedge jeans (always codes about). Anyone seen these in person ?
