If anything APC should be worried. All that time resting on their laurels has finally caught up with them.

Arket does the same thing they do, arguably better, with the backing of a giant, at a third of the price.

Longshot, but was anyone signed up to Arket's newsletter before the brand launched? If so, do you still have all the emails around pre-launch/launch in your inbox that you could PDF or forward to me?

yep. got a pair of these https://www.arket.com/en_gbp/men/jeans/product.regular-grey-selvedge-jeans-grey.0664525001.html

genuinely my favourite pair of jeans. excellent fit for me and I like the material (not one for the skinny jean/child-like physique crew)

only wish they did that cut in a black which didn't fade..

i bought a merino roll-neck a few weeks back. great for the cash imo. they fit a bit big (like uniqlo) so would suggest ordering a couple of sizes or going down a size if you are truly in between (like me)
