Reigning Champ have their own webstore, but if you can wait for the sales, it usually gets some decent reductions in the sales on various webstores. Keep an eye on Haven and Wellgosh, maybe Present (don't know they still stock it?).

Medium in reigning champ, Large on RM Ball park. Also worth a shout is Jelado sweats from no kipple. Nice material, good fit but maybe a touch on the long side.

Reigning champ are pretty well stocked, the end, present, kafta. They normally hit the sales pretty hard

Are the 50s OL sweats any good? Looking for a heavier weight one but couldn't find any RC ones in the colour and size I'm looking for. Anything else I should look for that hasn't already been covered in this thread yet?

NN07 make good ones. Merz B is probably too thin but is spot on!

The Russell Athletic ones on superdenim are brilliant. Best I've had, and tried OL, Sunspel, National Anthem, Saturdays and Wood Wood.

those recent champion reverse weave sweatshirts at size and oi polloi are really good quality, i'd say it's better than my our legacy and junya watanabe sweats tbh and it gets the most wear out of the three, but the sizing is a bit short even though i bought TTS.

yeah, good fit, not as 'rigid' as some competitors but really great materials & finish.

Anywhere that has Buzz Ricksons for less than retail? Even at full price they look like amazing value though. Has anyone imported one and could you recommend a seller at all?

Vari and Hinoya will ship overseas and mark as gift/declare low value, both of which I've purchased off from. Probably cost you mid-£70s for the BR65622 model after Paypal currency fee conversion + shipping.

You might want to check The Hambledon which did carry BR sweats for ~£120, IIRC, and regularly have a 50% sale; AW sale started on the 27th December, next SS sale will probably be late July. Won't sell online though.

I asked Vari previously about marking down some Momotaro and they said they wouldn't, but I guess it's who you get. How much do you normally ask them to mark it for, can I ask?

I'll try give that other place a ring to see whether they've got any left, but they'll likely be sold out as everywhere is picked clean from what I've seen.
