Missized my airism shirts didn't realize larges would be so big, usually get L in tees
post #11222 of 12299
Can anyone in the UK proxy me a black mac in xs since it doesn't appear like it's going to make it stateside? It's on sale on the UK website for 60GBP but no more in xs. I imagine some stores might still have them though. Willing to send you something extra for your troubles if you can find one. Thanks!

I think Uniqlo changed the sizing of their clothes compared to before. I have three blazers in XS that fit pretty well off the rack with just small tailoring job.  I just got one of the wool blazers in XS and it was really tight around the chest and back, my tailor said their isn't any extra fabric to take out so I got a S instead and now it's too big. Really dissappointed, not sure if I should just tailor the whole thing but it was only $80. I have a Tasmanian suit in XS I got a couple years ago that I love.

Did the premium tee's get smaller? I no longer could wear a XS which was my size. Funny thing is that I have not gained any weight during the last 2yrs.

My Uniqlo tees from this year fit a little smaller than my Uniqlo tees from last year.

There is something really weird with Uniqlo sizing. I had a chambray shirt that fitted perfectly and decided to take the same in another color, and it turned out to be too small. The same thing with the cotton/linen blazer: they are just not the same size.

Are the linen shirts really that bad of quality? I ordered 4 of them because I own no summer shirts and needed something affordable and available for this summer, which ruled out Jantzen as my shirts may not be made in time. Other than that I couldn't find any linen I liked in a middle price range. Linen is either cheap or very expensive and seeing as how these are casual shirts I figured Uniqlo would be good and I didn't need to go top tier like usual. However, I've never owned linen and can't really judge it's quality on my own but have heard some pretty bad things.

I think they're fine.  Will know for sure after I wash them.

I mean, the ones from last year were really good, especially for the price. Eventually they go on sale for like six bucks, too, which beats the hell out of similar $100 shirts from JCrew.

For pure linen, I only have had Brooks Brothers and Uniqlo shirts. You can definitely feel the difference between two, but for <$30, not sure if you can really complain.

Yeah, that's pretty much what I thought until recently. And I'm all about quality, but I agree that stores like J. Crew are obviously overpriced and I don't want to spend that much for casual shirts, and expensive linen is usually too refined for something like this. That's why I went with Uniqlo. I just didn't know if they would be durable after what I read.

Well, I understand that. I know that Uniqlo isn't going to the be the best quality in the world but I was just trying to get a solid base of decent/good quality summer shirts at an affordable price. Do you have experience with how the fabric holds up? The shirts fit me well and the fabric isn't uncomfortable on me so I'm really just concerned with the durability of it.

Sorry meant to say "one" can't really complain, not specifically you. It's not linen weather yet here in NY yet, so I actually haven't worn mine yet.

Are the new slim black jeans with all the polyester and spandex worth buying anymore or are they gone to shit now? Any consensus.. and how would I size them?
