Tried on an Essentials sweatshirt recently and personally I'm a big fan of how it fits but not too keen on the brand itself. Are there any brands that fit similarly and are decent quality?

Heard good things about them. Apparently they are what Kith uses for their hoodies

They're okay for the price paid. Cotton is heavy weight and similar to roopa mills but the cut and fit is where roopa is clearly superior

Ordered a pair of the camber sweatpants and they are top notch. Heavy but soft at the same time. A step up from reverse weave

Just ordered the matching sweatshirt as well

Yeah living in Camber sweatpants too, they're so good.

Dinner With Friends having a Camber sale, weird colours/big sizes left.

Urban Excess have the sweatshirts cheaper than most places, and do 10% off with GOOGFW2110 atm too.

I bought an EG fleece lined sweatshirt before Xmas. Quite boxy/vintage/oversize but I like it. Much prefer it to a overpriced (@ £170) dries one bought earlier in 2021 and reigning champ which I’ve worn a lot previously. Haven’t bought Real McCoys yet - something puts me off.

might need to retract that assessment ever so slightly. The roopa hoodie is more similar to reigning champ in that it is a more fitted style with more cuts etc while the stateline is slightly more simple and retro fit. One isn't inherently better than the other. I'm actually a lot happier with the stateline now that they've had a few wears.

Is there any shrinkage on Real McCoys sweatshirts after washing?

Small amount AFAIK and they come up very small to start with.

I tried the Laniakea on the other day. 42 was quite fitted and 44 was like how it should fit I guess.

A Real Mccoy in Large fits between 42 and 44 I would say (unwashed). Size difference is quite big, the two sizes really looked like a different fit. Hope that helps!

Hello everyone, this is my first post. I ordered Camber hoodie from Blacksmith Store last week and it has just arrived. I got it in size Small, but usually I wear size XS clothes.

Here are some photos that show how it looks on me: https://imgur.com/a/yOrEuzR

As expected, it's very oversized. I was put off by the fit at first but it's growing on me. I wonder if after warm mashine wash it'll fit better. Surprisingly, the neck hole is so small it's a little hard to put the hoodie on and the hood is very fitted. I'm worried it may become uncomfortably small after shrinking. On a side note, this thing is so soft, comfy, warm and not overly heavy at the same time, too bad I can't wear it in today's heat.
