This should also be a good resource for others to see how certain fades are produced and by what brands assuming everyone gives details or activities they engage in for the purpose of this contest.
I'd definitely consider hiking, swimming, tackle football, etc with the somets.
Can you take pictures of the Trovata? Are the photos color-accurate?
Yeah it was a little ridiculous. Outside of SF 28's are usually as small as things get so I can't imagine people who thought to order true to size.
I'm sorry I can't say about their outerwear but I can say their sweaters and a few non-button front shirts are smaller than their button front shirting. I usually get a M in sweaters etc but their S shirts are too large.
I anticipated some resizing and I'm not SF skinny, but Uniqlo oxfords are not sized noticeably different from other dept store/otr stores (j.crew, br, etc). I bought a couple oxfords and a flannel in S, I wore one of them before deciding I really ought to go with XS (or visit a tailor x4) if I ever wanted to wear untucked. I know a lot of people pay for a proxy so I'm going to keep these in case anyone is wanting a couple shirts in S.
I like them as snug as I can get, roomy shoes are pretty awkward in my opinion. Extra space means my foot can shift around and this negates having an insole which is supposed to support your foot. I'm a smaller guy so visually clunky shoes look out of place on me, particularly boots which can give horrible heel slip if they aren't sized correctly.
Yeah, I took the black JS rockers last time around in a 28 and they were huge. I'm 5'6" and ~30" at the waist.
