Hoodies and sweats on Hip have been rinsed with the 20% code by the looks of things, no longer eligible for discount.

How's everyone sizing on those?

Seems a bit more TTS than usual Beams stuff

you might want to size up if you're tall (sleeves and body lenght are a bit on the short side), that's what i did and i'm happy with the fit

The only thing that appeals to me is the colour. I've not really been a fan of beams quality. It's not awful but does make me think of a japanese J Crew.

Need to see if Filmelange, Loopwheeler or Lady White have something similar. Eye-wink

Agreed about beams quality, especially for the price

I’ve got medium in olive and black, too short for me (6ft 1”) if any fuker wants them before they go back to Hip.

The quality is very good for £68! Compared to anything ££££s.

they've a huge collection each seasons, so quality may vary, but there always some nice pieces (and japanese retail prices is quite fair actually)

I agree with Jero, Jap retail is fair for the quality you get, plus it's also pretty easy to find it discounted in Europe.
For sure some other Jap brands are much higher in quality, but also in price.

I've recently bought a flannel shirt, 40% off, cost around 100€ but it's one of the best I've touched in years. Great quality and details

Rate Beams (especially their popover shirts) and always check out their stuff as it's typical Americana, decent quality and some interesting items but I still feel snobby that a lot isn't that cheap and is all BEAMS JAPAN*

*made in China

Really?

All the stuff I have, mostly Beams Plus, is made in Japan, but I always thought everything was made there

It's been discussed already, but I'm separating quality or details from a general sense of value in something being MIJ (or Italy, USA, UK etc) at similar price points.
