Not sure actually, I think £85 with £5-6 postage. Ordered a hoodie previously and was about £100 delivered

They're huge TTS, depends what fit you're after - I like it.

Can size them down one like Beige do in their fit pics, but that's not really the point of them

I'm looking for a mauve coloured washed out hoodie in a Size M, something slightly oversized like Kanye would wear

Yep, all camber.

Blank Expression have similar price/details but fit a bit trimmer: https://blankexpression.co/

I’m bored of the normcore shit and plain ££££ sweats knitted by blind nuns. What are some shops to find hoodies & sweats with dope graphics? Quite like the selection at DSM.

I went TTS, Medium for me… I'd describe the fit as true - I could've gone for an L and had it roomier but it's pretty slouchy - large hood etc.

I'm in Minnesota and we've had -41F (with wind chill) over the last couple of months and this stuff has been a necessary middle layer so haven't wanted too bulky under a coat.

I have a couple of bits of their non-dyed sweat too (The black and heather ones: https://losangelesapparel.net/collections/men-sweatshirts/products/hf09?variant=802179121158) - pair of sweatpants and a couple of hoodies which I would say size up on as they did shrink a bit, but the pre-washed garment and pigment-dyed stuff haven't shrunk at all.

My take overall is that the fabric is great, 14oz feels beefy and it hangs well, the dyed stuff has a soft hand and washes with a bit of subtle fade, whereas the black is noticeably sturdier. Construction is decent enough, but not exceptional, to be expected for the price.

imho camber are a little big when you first get them but shrink down to true to size in the wash

personally preferred it before when it was a little big as they are so thick

they are good but not sure i'd bother with buying them in the UK if its a faff/expensive (i am in US), think there are better options out there

Model i have is the 232 Cross-Knit Heavyweight

was working with a guy wearing a camber yesterday and it put me off buying one completely. They're so thick and boxy that it made him look like the michelin man. CSB but thought worth mentioning as they are definitely a particular style of hoody.

yeah they are very thick, i find mine maybe a little too hot for wearing at home even (though it is good outside)

I don’t wanna enter the fit battle but I just got a beams parka hood from Peggs which is decent

It’s tough but can feel it’s for spring/summer. Nice wash on it and a size up job.

I had a sweat and the quality was good but i didn't like the fit, it was a LITTLE boxy. i'm tempted by their long sleeve tees at the mo tho
