Think all of the splash stuff on the OL website looks pretty shite.

That said I might pick up some clear void sunnies

Some things are a little woeful, but thats OL. I got the marine chino 22s to try on and the round neck vent jumper.

The void sunnies are quality, got a pair at 60% off at the start of the year. You probably wont see the clear ones reduced.

Some nice bits but at those prices they wont be shifting, cant see the price hike working out you'll just have even more people waiting until the sale.

I know it's a cliche round here but I'm kind of over OL. I decided I was ages ago but kept going back like some kind of abused spouse. But now the spark has gone.

I usually only go for the more boring items anyway, and increasingly it feels like they peddle the same old boring blue shirts to squares like me to cross-subsidise hideous, wacky bullshit. I have no desire to dress like a gormless space hippy.

It used to be a good price point but looking at this I'd personally rather go to Margaret Howell, The Real McCoys or Engineered Garments. I suppose plenty of people must be really into this direction. I dunno.

^ agreed no idea why i still come and check this thread but i do…a lot. Of all the OL I have bought over the years I only ever really wear the mixed coloured great sweat and the long sleeve frote t-shirt, got shot of all the rest. Seems to have become a bit too fashion

i understand margaret howell, thats a great brand. just think EG and McCoys are way too hand-in-pocket crew and boring as fuck

all of them lack that scandi aesthetic though

EG, McCoys etc are completely different brands, different aesthetic.

Yeah I know, they're very different even to each other as well, I just meant for me personally. MH is more refined and RM is more substantial. It doesn't have to be hand-in-pocket, that depends how you wear it. OL just always seems fairly lightweight somehow. Lots of shirt jackets.

I would argue that OL and EG are similar in a way. They have different vibes and cater to different crowds but are alike in how they play with reference points, be it military or sportswear or whatever. Their collections are usually a range of established styles in interesting or unexpected fabrics.

I have always looked at OL as a bit of a copycat brand, you can easily see what they got the idea from,
or what japanese brand they like at the moment, be Nonnative Eg etc
…a lot of moodboards.
The main problem though is dat they squeeze out the same product season after season,
just different color and more expensive.

1940s has the best fit. Shield jacket is on point as well. However, not the biggest fan of their sweats or tees.
