Try wings and horns or reigning champ. The winter versions are nice and heavy weight.
For knits give SNS herning a go, they're quality without compromise.

This
Go one up from usual size
im a small in most stuff and medium in Japanese like beams and mccoys and I go large for a perfect fit that's not too short
quality for me is better than mccoys , national athletic and other premium sweats

I had tried a medium previously and found it was a little short, but otherwise fitted spot on. Worried the large will drown me!

Any recommendations for the best popover hoody? I want a reasonably thick one, navy blue that fits TTS and pretty neat not boxy/short/oversized. Reigning champ?

Reigning Champ sweatshirts are excellent. Good fit, collar and decent thickness.
Not sure on the hoodies but should be the same.

Loopwheeler if you can find one. Best one I've ever bought. Real McCoy's/Buzz Rickson is also well worth looking at.

Loopwheeler are by far the best I've tried, both fit and and quality are great.

Reigning Champ best overall compromise, but not very thick imo. Good for autumn\spring

Got a few RC heavyweight sweats and imo they're better shape and quality than Real McCoys.

Got this for a hoodie, not found anything better yet

Ah thanks, yeah thats what I gathered from some googling, seems one decent UK seller could fill a big niche hole in this market.
