Bought the high density topcoat. Been waiting ages for a 20 points off code. They seem to never be in the sales

I was in Arket for the first time and picked up a few bits in the sale. Pretty impressed with the quality and fits for price. Would recommend versus the likes of APC.

Anyone got this jacket from last season, in black, and looking to get rid? S or M?

APC is losing its place in the world…. genuinely think they will have to scale back their operations in the years to come

Anyone ordered recently? Ordered something on the 20th but no dispatch email yet. I know its Xmas etc but last time I ordered it was dispatched within a day or so.

APC went to shit. Every piece I have - including the higher quality Louis W stuff - has ripped or had loose threads.

But agree - ARKET seems to be decent quality. Picked up a field jacket that felt like materials used by Stoney… compared the jacket against a David Light TC and couldn't tell the difference.

only issue for me is that it's owned and produced by H&M so contributing to fast fashion etc.

Delivery times seem to have got much worse since Arket changed to using Klarna checkout.

Anyone tried their suits? The wool hopsack suit looks good for the price of it.

Nope, unfortunately not. Free returns, so you can always order.
Gotta say there is pretty good discount now. Smiling Just placed my first order.

Been into the Bham store a few times and struggling to find anything that appealed. A lot of the stuff just doesn’t feel very nice, not that it feels cheap just not overly soft fabrics etc.

Do people have any experience on the thickness for the different GSM for the t shirts - 150, 170, 220?

Are the 220GSM ones comparable to the supreme pocket cut&sew tees?
