if reiss sorted their sizing out rather than assuming a small is the equivalent of a large then it would be better…although this goes for the majority of the high street..

cos being the worst!

Aye that's true

£100+ for a shirt and £50 for a tshirt with no attention to fit details , decent yarns etc is why they are on the decline in my view.
I disagree on the quality front, im by no means saying they are amazing but a wool suit for 200 dabs is a fair price. Pier wise (Topman, H&M, Zara) it would be a nylon blend at best.

toocan, fair cop I havent ever bought a suit from reiss or anywhere for that matter, so cant comment. Probably because im a scruffy cunt.
For me the jersey quality on the sweats and the cottons used on tees and jumpers is poor for the £££

Next Italian wool suits are around £200-£250 and come in three lengths, hence my previous comment.

Are the suits in zara any good or shite? they always look to me to be a decent fit if you're a skinny cunt due to italian sizing/cut
prices look decent too

If anyone spots these Acne Drifter suit trousers in a 44 or 46 could you give me a heads up. Oh and the blazer in a 44.

Are they poor quality MTP? Or fit issues?

The chinos have gone down in quality in recent years, I have a few pair and the difference in quality is massive

Have 4 pairs of their chinos. Quite like them though there's huge variation in sizing on the 4 pairs I have. Waist is generally pretty stable (size down 1 inch) but the lengths and slimness seems to be all over the place.

The rise on them is shocking, I had to dress upwards which is not a good look

Agree on the rise. Prefer the fit on uniqlo slim fits but the quality just isn't there. If anyone knows something that fits similar (to uniqlo) but nicer quality I'd be interested.
