It's uniqlo not canada goose. You'll probably have to layer underneath.

Does anybody have a camel chesterfield in L that they aren't happy with? Or perhaps a local 'qlo that they could proxy me one from? Much appreciated

The plain colored flannel shirts are pretty nice. It's unfortunate the online store doesn't sell any, and the store is flooded with the patterned variety.

I remember wearing a size small in Uniqlo shirts, but the medium after a wash and dry fits nice. I just wear the collar unbuttoned, much improved.

Well I could have been more straight forward as Distorb above, but 0 F is no joke COLD weather… I live in LA now, but I grew up in Ohio so I'm fully aware of real cold. Uniqlo is great for what it is… what it is NOT, is something I would wear in actual freezing weather… so in short no.

Don't you live in Fremont or something gettoasty? I hear the uniqlo at great mall is huge. They'd probably have a pretty full selection.

Also tried on the ... 

slim fit stretch tapered and the top block wasn't that sharp, felt sloppy, but definitely more room there if you want it.  But the skinny fit already has stretch to it, so it's not really needed.  
legging jean, which just seemed not worth it.  Lower price point and the whole thing just felt cheaper.  

How's the rise? I remember trying a stretch skinny tapered fit and the rise was very low, below the belly. Are those low rise? Is there one with a higher rise?

Super low rise on the skinny fit, probably returning mine for a size up- i also heard rise is a bit different on 34 inseam vs 32 but measurements are identical online. Slim fit straight selvedge in the same fabric fits nice sized down 1 but requires a taper. Pick your poison, for 50 bones either is decent.

@NaTions That's the one I checked out. Picked over and only found the one off-white flannel shirt in the sales section of all places.

Going to checkout Valleyfair on the way to dinner on Thursday. I wouldn't mind one more flannel shirt in off-white for rotating my sleepwear.

So lower rise on the 32 vs 34 inseam? O vice versa?

I guess the highest I can go is 36 waist anyway.

what's the leg opening for the skinny tapered?

Stopped in the Bellevue Uniqlo today. I was pretty excited for this brand and it's focus on technical materials.

I was hoping it would be my go-to brick and mortar alternative to Outlier. Mass-produced technical fabric and merino wool.

But I didn't buy a thing. Pretty disappointed!

The "heattech" shirts are just... terrible on my body. Extremely form fitting. Might be good as like a base layer for skiing or under a football jersey, but no way am I wearing this as a normal t-shirt. Too bad, the material is really nice.

Non-Heattech shirts were all 100% cotton or 60/40 cotton polly blends. Meh. Could get that elsewhere.

No polo shirts in the store.

No "AIRism" poly/spandex shirts in store.

Oxfords were all 100% cotton. No different in my eyes than the Oxfords from GAP or wherever. And they were really long. I'd probably want to have them taken up an inch or 3 at the bottom to wear untucked...

100% merino wool sweater seemed nice. Might pick one of these up. Probably have bought one if I had tried and loved a Black one, but the sample in my size was bright red! That's one drawback to their "one tester garment for each size" thing, but I did like that overall.

The jackets were really nice. I liked the down jackets, the windproof hoodie, and the light rain jacket. Great job, here.

What did I miss out on? Seemed like a small store compared to the one in SOMA that I briefly ducked into. Really wish I had found some nice t-shirts, I would have replaced my entire wordrobe...

Hey,

I live in Canada and was wondering if anyone is doing a proxy service for Uniqlo? I've been looking for a Ultra-Light down.

Thanks!

I offer one, but it'll be shipping from Japan, not US.

In Japan at least, most people wear Heat tech as an under layer.

AIRism, Polo shirts, etc are associated with spring-summer and early fall. That's why they're no longer in stock in most locations.

Even in tropical locations of Japan, their inventory is based on season.
