Colorful standard hoody’s are very long in the arms, basic but good for the money and they don’t shrink.

Really like Reigning Champ and would buy again but the £125 price tag for a basic sweatshirt is putting me off this time. Impoverished prolo dad. sad times.

Does RC fit like the Supreme sweatshirts? And same kinda thickness?

Thanks^ Does anywhere in the UK have a decent RC selection? Just want a plain black sweatshirt and everything I'm finding on UK stores is the logo'd stuff.

Bit overkill but I work from home and RC is pretty much all I wear during the week. Heavyweight sweats best out there imo.

Bought this: https://www.mrporter.com/en-gb/mens/product/reigning_champ/slim-fit-loopback-cotton-jersey-sweatshirt/1028817

Gotta say I'm a bit disappointed by how thin it is. Supreme ones I have feel thicker. Did I just buy a thin version? Or are all RC sweats the same?

Nah not all the same thickness, but looking at that one it should be pretty regular

I've never had loopback supreme, only had the fleece lined.

Any recommendations for sweats similar to the Supreme fleece lined?

For £120 youd want that RC to be nice and heavy.

RC feels nice in its own way - agree with MrW that the heavyweight fleece is one of my faves.

Would say their thinner and feel tougher than the Supreme ones, but equally as warm. Fit v nice as well.

Think the loopback one would be more in line with Sunspel sweats, a bit lighter, and probably for spring/summer?

Can anyone point me towards plain black heavyweight RC in the UK please? All I'm finding is heavily logo'd stuff or flimsy loopback.

Or:

Anyone ever tried Jackman? Never heard of them until now, but I like the look of this. Any better alternatives?
