Hem is a bit weird, agreed, but overall fit is good imo

Would be nice to see a fit pic of other colours ones

The hem looks fine to me. A lot of sweatshirts have exactly this, especially vintage.

To me it looks like they are bunching as they are lightweight and not tapered enough in the body.

Can anyone recommend a heavyweight hoodie? Have had the Champion Reverse Weave and they are OK, but want to look at something new. If possible something unbranded / ability to remove any sewn on designs.

Was looking at these but they seem to be sold out:

Those MKI are just re-branded Camber hoodies. They're great.
Can order via DM here: https://www.instagram.com/dinnerwithfriendsshop/

Camber is excellent quality!
Looking for their cross-knit zip hoodies myself.
Anyone know where I can get one? Google is not very helpful

DM that page^ or maybe Blacksmith Store.
They might custom order you when they next contact Camber?


Also really recommend Battenwear hoodies, love mine.

You can get Camber here (Camber only deal with trade) but US (use a proxy or ShipItTo):

https://allusaclothing.com/view-all-brands/camber.html

Or here at EU pricing/markup but no Zip hoody:

Shame about OAU as their pricing was fair I thought, got a couple of Camber from them previously.

Buzz rickson or real McCoy for sweat? Are McCoy’s worth the extra ££?

I got an orange buzz one recently having not been able to get the colour from elsewhere and it's still very decent, was about £120 I think. Bit less substantial than RMC loopwheel and slightly more basic detailing. If you are looking for the classic grey I would get the best you can though (not necessarily RMC, lots of other good brands).

Alway try and go to their pop up sales when they had them. Managed to get 4 Fil Melange hoodies/sweats for the wife and I for about £50-60 a pop.
