FWIW I wear the same size in the flannel as the slim oxford. The flannel is a tad bit bigger in the chest and shoulders and bigger in the waist area. I couldn't go any slimmer on the oxfords though and worry about shrinkage from the wash.

OK thanks for the feedback. I might give the XS a try and return if need be

you'll end up returning

I wear the slim fit oxford in S and its definitely not tight but it fits well everywhere. The XS flannels fit closely but it fits tighter than my oxfords after washing. The sleeves have the most drastic shrinking though. I'd get S  if you prefer a looser fit with your flannels. I'm 6'1" 160lb if that helps. 

 

 

Anyone try the heattech sweaters? I'm curious as to how they perform, seems gimmicky but my heattech shirts are great.

I've just been buying slim fit everything for a long time on autopilot without thinking about whether it's really the best choice all the time.

MA-1 in black is back in stock in size M right now.
post #10133 of 11173

So my MA-1 and skinny tapered jeans arrived today and I have mixed feelings about them.

 

The MA-1 fits fine. You should go true to size or size down if you're in between. I bought the dark brown color hoping that it looks more like plum as it does in the picture, but in reality, it looks just like what it's called. A coffee bean dark brown I might say. The fabric is lightweight, water and wind repellent and actually feels quite nice. I just don't like how when you wear it on it's kinda inflated instead of lying flat, as if there's air in the lining. Construction is okay. I feel that this is the jacket that H&M may sell for 30 bucks.

 

With the jeans I went true to size, and even though the waist is a bit smaller than expected it still fits well thanks to the stretchy material. The problem is that the thigh is really tight (and my thighs are already quite slim) making the jeans feel like leggings (I'm not joking.) It may or may not be your thing. Also, I hasten to add that the jeans do stack, though very slightly, as the material is a stretchy not sturdy kind of denim. I order a pair in this shade of grey but in real life the color is even lighter. In retrospect, I wish that I had gone with the dark grey slim straight instead.

maybe uniqlo is not the cut for you i do believe if the shirt is slim in a way that flatters your body it is good for the right situation. but i also like the middle ground. but i know what you mean.

once you find a shirt that fits not too loose or tight you might understand what i mean.

Can anyone help me work out the leg opening on the slim fit straight colour denim? Is it a tapered cut?
post #10137 of 11173
click size chart
post #10138 of 11173

Size chart doesn't have the leg openings, I've been looking for those measurements for a while.

My Heattech stuff has finally arrived in the mail today and I have a couple questions:

1. What exactly is in the "heattech" stuff that makes this thing warm, the acrylic or their advertised "milk protein" (which I find hard to believe)?

2. Whats the antibacterial agent? Wouldn't it wash away?

3. Is uniqlo supposed to be boxy? Shoulders fit a bit slim for me, but my HT fleece sweater seems to be a bit boxy/baggy while the LS shirt seems to skim along my torso.

4. Can you pair fleece sweater with flannel shirt?

5. How do you make this thing warm? I'm sitting here typing and I feel like my regular cotton T and hoodie do a better job keeping me warm.
