Nice one. Looks like it has been brought up. Original thread is a silvery grey where-as the bottom is a little darker.

Since when did they get away with charging £209 (End) for their zip shawl shirt?! Could swear I paid £120-140 max retail before a few years back. Their pricing's been on the rise year in year out and the quality seems to be getting worse (in my experience anyway)

tbf it's probably not possible to blame it ALL on the close-minded xenophobes who voted for our DIY recession… OL have been aiming to go more high-end and wanted to fund a female range

Wonder if every other manufacturer using Portugal have increased their prices by the same margin or perhaps just a strategy to increase their revenue and brand value?

Anyone still buying new smegacy stuff? Favourite recent pieces? Feel like the brand has really changed up their direction.

was browsing and couldn't find a huge amount i would wear this season Cry Cry

will have to look to the brands I used to like before legacy for clothes now. folk, ymc, albam… issue is, their clothes are so similar, plain and uninteresting. our legacy always had something a bit extra (interesting materials, different campaigns) that gave it that edge over similar brand. i feel like they are focussing too much on this "extra" piece and have moved too far away from what they became big on - men's staples

i do however understand that they want to keep the brand exciting.. but this almost "high fashion" vibe is too far
