Tried on an Essentials sweatshirt recently and personally I'm a big fan of how it fits but not too keen on the brand itself. Are there any brands that fit similarly and are decent quality?

Heard good things about them. Apparently they are what Kith uses for their hoodies

They're okay for the price paid. Cotton is heavy weight and similar to roopa mills but the cut and fit is where roopa is clearly superior

Ordered a pair of the camber sweatpants and they are top notch. Heavy but soft at the same time. A step up from reverse weave

Just ordered the matching sweatshirt as well

Yeah living in Camber sweatpants too, they're so good.

Dinner With Friends having a Camber sale, weird colours/big sizes left.

Urban Excess have the sweatshirts cheaper than most places, and do 10% off with GOOGFW2110 atm too.

I bought an EG fleece lined sweatshirt before Xmas. Quite boxy/vintage/oversize but I like it. Much prefer it to a overpriced (@ £170) dries one bought earlier in 2021 and reigning champ which I’ve worn a lot previously. Haven’t bought Real McCoys yet - something puts me off.

might need to retract that assessment ever so slightly. The roopa hoodie is more similar to reigning champ in that it is a more fitted style with more cuts etc while the stateline is slightly more simple and retro fit. One isn't inherently better than the other. I'm actually a lot happier with the stateline now that they've had a few wears.

Is there any shrinkage on Real McCoys sweatshirts after washing?

Anyone got a Sunray sweat? How's the sizing?
