I've got the charcoal beams in xl that I maybe backing, I paid full price from end though! obviously there where no xls on Hip,and they seem to be sold out everywhere. I really like the fit and colour but I prefer fleece backed jearsy, so waiting on a blank expression to compair.

On a slightly different note. Any brands on the same level as Loopwheeler, Filmelange, RMC do a decent hoodie. I have stuff from these, plus 45r, Kapital and Visvim.

I know there are loads but not sure where to start. Cushman, Warehouse, Lady White Co, Paa?

Want a high pile one I think but also not too short. Like the look of the 10oz RMC ones if people have one?

I got the 10oz RMC zip hoody off end when they did the flash 20% off last month. I love it, good weight to it and soft material. Possibly a bit boxy though?

Anyone washed their beams hoodie yet? I had the washed black one and it's faded to grey after one wash.

Anyone here know Rue Porter? I ordered some things there with a wholesale account. Their delivery is super slow but I've heard quality is great, I got time.

Never heard of it, but do like those hoodies. Looks like there is a 14-25 day delay on shipping. Is it European based? Assume there would be import fees to consider?

For UK probably, I'm Amsterdam based. I think they ship straight from Portugal.

i grabbed one of these in yellow a couple months back and have been wearing it pretty much every day. washed a couple of times with no fading or shrinkage - i'm not wild on the hooded version, but the crew and short sleeved crew are great. might be a good alternative to the Beams one.

Just received a Blank Expression sweatshirt, quality is good, fit as per website suggestion is wrong so returning. Suggest going TTS or sizing up 1 for a looser fit as opposed to sizing down 1 as per website.

All their stuff looks decent but sizing and fit is wank. I know they are going for a classic style but couldn’t even get the xxl past me thighs in the track or sweat pants and the hems were up me shins Laughing out loud

Been buying these United Athle hoodies straight from amazon jp

I'd say these are the best you can find for the price (works out a little under £40 shipped and arrives in a few days). Size up 1.

How are you able to order? For some reason won't accept my UK Amazon account.
