Fit is broad and long

Has anyone owned any of the runners? Curious how they fit - comfort, resiliance etc. Really want to own a pair but they're even dearer than CPs

new ones don't' look quite as good as some of the past seasons:

I’ve got an older style runner (fine, nothing special) and two pairs of the mono runner. Monos are the comfiest things I own, really well made and I love the shape. I sized down to a 40 which is perfect (42 Nike, 41 CP) as I found them pretty big. There are a couple of pairs floating around in the sales, definitely worth it if discounted.

Cool, thanks for your insight. Hoping to land a pair in the sales for sub £200

I’d imagine the queues will be off the scale given how small the place is.

Me and my housemate had a look in on the way to work this morning, had to wait 15-20 mins to get in and it was packed.

Usual kind of stuff from previous sample sales tbh, nothing special but probably worth a look - they said they’d replenish stock regularly over the weekend.

Quite a few of last season’s plain shirts and tees mostly in big sizes. Some decent heavyweight knits, a few older shield jackets and coats, and boxes full of the Everyman 1940s shirts in all colours.

No sign of swede’s flight jacket sadly Cry

Would definitely recommend going as there's a lot of choice. Just persevere, endure the heat and sweat it out for a bargain.
