thanks for this. think I read on here that they come up small, but blacksmith website suggests otherwise, as I would have assumed with a USA product. Better to go TTS?

Some fit pics here: https://www.beige-habilleur.com/en/61_camber-usa

They've sized them down 1, but they'll shrink a bit and IMO look better oversized.

I've read on multiple sites that they come up large, or regular if you like them baggy. I've got some arriving Friday, hopefully, so can update.

I have one. From my experience I tried going down a size but hood was quite small and after shrinkage fit wasn't quite right for me.

After that I went normal size and with shrinkage it's got a nice oversized look but not daft - I think they look better that way but up to how you prefer.

PS. Thanks for the tip, just grabbed the grey I was after.

From somebody who's already been through the camber debacle, definitely stick with your true size. Bottom line is the ribbing runs long and likely will get folded over at the cuffs, but sizing down as somebody mentioned will make the neck hole too small and short in body. Its a classic workwear styled sweat, not really fit to size. Would be dope if somebody did a custom run with camber and fixed the rib length, while keeping most other stuff intact.

yeah got quite a bit, mainly for around the house and casual workout stuff. reminds me of an american apparel +, better, washed fabrics. I don't have any of the short sleeved t's, but I reckon size up on long sleeve. sweatshirts etc TTS.

They're alright (not amazing), I've got three of their sweatshirts and the range of colours is the selling point IMO.

The fit is basic and the material is light to medium weight, it's not heavy like a Champion Reverse Weave sweat for example.
