vary wildly in sizing and neck aswell as country of manufacture. Best to buy vintage with exact measurements I think vs Amazon etc

Yeah they are. Order from East Dane, make sure you choose the option to pay the import charges at checkout. 2 day delivery and works out cheaper than buying in UK. Saved £50 buying a hoody from there instead of mr porter recently.

Anyone have a loopwheel spellbound hoodie?
Looking at this one https://www.endclothing.com/gb/spellbound-loopwheel-zip-hoody-48-497n-16.html

Or am I better off with a McCoy’s zip up?

I definitely wouldn't size up. My National athletic is bigger than my Buzz Rickson- both large

Need to take the temperature of the sweat market atm.

Real McCoy's worth the premium over Buzz Rickson?

Or do I just get a discounted Reigning Champ?

BR looks the nicest to my eye.

Any new players?

RMC loopwheel are amazing but the short cut isn't for everyone. Not really sure it's worth the full retail. RC I have is still weirdly stiff and def not as comfortable.

Tried them on in the Soho store, quality was decent, but material was a bit too light for what I wanted.

may swerve then. I want something quite thick and soft. is champion reverse weave the only option?

I'd get a tres bien one but they look a bit cheap
