They have arranged for DPD to pick up the incorrect sweatshirt and will send the correct one out once they have received the return. Fair play if it goes smoothly.

Really decent quality for £45 in the sale. Not sure I need 3 of them but couldn't turn down a bargain.

Tried blank expression based on this thread
The quality is OK, it’s got a heavy weight feel but isn’t heavyweight
They aren’t mindblowing or really high quality just so others know
Also bought two colours in the same size and the measurements are actually completely different
One is slightly large for me but will work well and the other of the same size is skin tight
QC on these is not that great
Still good value at half price for sure but just managing fukers expectations

The two I've got and kept are the same size but the one I returned did seem slightly bigger.

I think they are a good purchase at half price but not as high quality as a Buzz Rickson/McCoys. The fit works well for me (pretty regular I'd say) but might not be for everyone.

Wouldn’t be buying any of that blank expression stuff personally. Load of tat you’ve all filled your boots with

Compared to the likes of RC etc the material seems well made, the cotton stiff and chunky like it’s woven the same way but the weight is lighter for sure and the fleece inside is cheaper / lightweight
The make is inferior which is reflected in the price however it’s certainly not tat , I would say these are great for knocking around in and compared to the shite you can pay £40 for like generic sportswear blanks (Nike essentials etc) they are miles better

they actually looks quite similar to cyc (rc…), fit is close too (slightly more boxy). only thing i dislike a bit is the kangaroo pocket design
it's just a hoodie, nothing fancy

Took a punt and ordered a Knickerbocker sweat in the Kafka safe. Anyone tried them?

^Can answer my own question. I found the knickerbocker sweat to fit quite generous around the chest and arms and then really slim around the waist. Not good for a skinny fat man like myself.

Might be a bit too on trend for some fuk'ers as most seem to like the more RM type stuff but I think these are decent

Just got a Lady White Classic hoodie in and to me they're the best I've had so far.

They're a lot less thick than say loopwheeler or real mccoys hoodies but the fabric is still quite substantial and really soft to touch. Fit is slightly short in body and fitted though not slim. They're currently on sale at cultizm.
