Yep. I definitely look at how well the garment holds up in comparison to the price when judging if something is "overpriced". COS is certainly not cheap, but the clothes last really well so I don't think it's overpriced or even expensive.

I presume it's because of the competition? Isn't something like Banana Republic of similar concept?

no, there is just about no similarity at all between Banana Republic and what I know of Cos.

Really? I had the impression that BR sold clothes of higher quality in the higher end price point of high street. Perhaps I was mistaken then.

^It's pretty much only conservative office-wear. It really has nothing to do with COS IMO.

^I don't think BR is as conservative as you suggest, but I wasn't saying that they were of similar style. Just concept. And I do think some of their clientele overlaps. With regards to style, I do think COS is more "edgy"? Not sure that's the right word but whatever.

I do think some of the things they have at COS are overprized, like I would never pay over 200DKK for a plain tee, but that's just me
I did buy a really nice cardi at the COS store in Aarhus

^I dunno. 200 DKK isn't so bad if it last. A normal tee in H&M cost between 79-129 DKK but depending on your luck, the tee will lose it shape/get twisted seams/fade in colour/shrink etc. after a couple of wears.

That's not too bad! Unfortunately their smallest size is too big for me.
