Is there a definitive answer on which US/UK is simply just one size down compared to Asian sizes, or there are actual tweaks in sleeves and length etc? I only have experiences with Asian sized Uniqlos and if the US version have the same cut, i'd be really tempted to get a proxy.

I'm looking at the measurements on the UK site and it seems to me that their measurements are really inconsistent with their products. For example, I'm a XS in their oxfords but a M in their Merino V-necks. Is this normal or are their measurements just done poorly?

THanks!

Stay with the XS.
The color labeled brown looks closer to gray
The color labeled olive looks closer to brown

I think some of their items are labelled incorrectly colour-wise. I picked up the brown looking one, and it's labelled as brown. On the other hand, I picked up the wine cardigan, but it's labelled as purple, which looks like neon pink online.

I only own some tees and they're definitely warmer than a regular cotton tee. I mean they're not magical or anything but I was wearing a heattech tee under a shirt with a light cotton jacket in 48-50 degree weather and was fine. Then again I like the cold so maybe I'm not the best person to ask.

Checked but was confused with the ~14 inches on the XS, so I assumed I should size up.

I looked on the site and it says that the XS is only~ 14 inches, when I'm usually a 16.25-16.75 in s-2-s. Will it stretch out enough??

Thanks!

are there still any of the green cashmere +J cardigans left in store in small/xsmall

What item are you looking at?

For knits I tend to assume some stretch with the shoulder measurement.

If the next size up is too much, stick with your original size and measurements.

Thanks i'll find a proxy. You normally wear an xs and you got the s? What's your height and weight if you don't mind me asking.

I wear XS in pretty much all Uniqlo tops. My shoulder measurement is ~16". I would say the actual shoulder measurement of the knit is closer to 16"

Picked up the Reversible Down Jacket a couple weeks ago, wore it to NYC this thanksgiving and it kept me warm. The reversible side is water resistant as far as I can tell. Really nice details and an XS fits wonderfully for a 5'6" 130lb. asian male.

Last time, I also picked up a bunch of XS heattech vnecks and their super soft long sleeve vnecks. They both fit well and feel very nice. I can wear the heattech underneath the long sleeve with a jacket and stay pretty warm in Boston. Looks like that's going to be my uniform or whatever.

The hoodies also look, feel, and fit well (slim). But they are a bit expensive at $40. XS was a bit too small for me, so I went with S.

On Black Friday I copped a bunch of heattech thermals and socks, and more super soft long sleeve vnecks. 34th street was out of XS in black +J peacoats. XS seems hard to find in nice styles for +J. But I did pick up the +J Half Coat with removable vest and hood. It's pretty sweet in terms or material, details, and fit. I'm not sure how warm it will be, but I know it's warmer than the +J fishtail coat. I'll have a chance to test it out this week when it rains in Boston. Mm, and why do they make clothes out of materials that will deteriorate in 3 years? Is that typical for weatherproof jackets?

Also, 34th doesn't carry any Innovation Project, but I think that's because they're done with that line? Not sure. In fact a lot of employees I asked didn't know anything about it.

Anyway, just wish I could've been there longer for the merino sweater and oxford sale.

Damn, anyone help me put through a proxy order via sudden lee?

Im just after some +J stuff and Ive been pretty slack with responding to P.M's (sorry BlackToothedGrin)

Im happy to pay all fee's + 10%, which is pretty good IIRC.

Thanks!
