The slim oxford button down in Medium fits me perfect. I have odd sizing issues. If I pick sizing based on just one element, it often throws the rest off. For example, I button the top button often because I wear ties. I have a largish neck (~16"). To get a 16" on must BD shirts, you're looking at a medium to large. Or a 40-42 chest. I often have to deal with blooming or long sleeves. I know this is the nature of ready to wear, off the rack clothing but it's frustrating.

But the Navy is black. My order form says Navy, and the tags on the pants say Navy, but it's clearly black. I'll keep them anyway.
This cardigan feels nice, not much else to say:

when you say "well" do you mean slim?

Yeah i have the same question. From the measurements they seem like mens wearhouse fat pants. 13.5 thigh, 8.3 hem...whut?
post #6154 of 11578
They are not slim fit, but not classic fit either. The ass it not baggy, and the crotch is not too tight when sitting down, which is what I mean by fits "well" since I'm buying them for work. The fit pics on the Uniqlo site are accurate.

Maybe others can chime in, but I'd be suspect of the measurements for bottoms unless someone can verify a specific piece. As I noted in my post recapping my order, the measurements for the jeans I bought were off by a decent amount for the waist, rise, and thigh.

This was for the regular fit straight color jeans (34).

Waist: 36" (site) vs. 34"
Rise: 9.5" (site) vs. 10.75ish"
Thigh: 13" (site) vs. 12"

No leg opening given on site, but it's 8" on this pair.

I ordered this http://www.uniqlo.com/us/store/made-for-all/men-corduroy-jacket/070266-39-002

 

this http://www.uniqlo.com/us/store/goods/074881-04-003

 

and this http://www.uniqlo.com/us/store/goods/072742-54-003

 

all size small.

 

I'm 5'8; 39" chest, 31" waist. about 155lbs this week.

 

The jackets both fit snugly, but overall pretty well for under $100 jackets. Sleeves are about an inch too long but are easily tailored. Fairly cropped length, but that's how I like it.

 

I suspect mediums would have had too broad shoulders, though maybe a better fit in the chest.

 

I ordered the cord jacket because I love wearing brown cord jackets and my old one was damaged last fall. I haven't seen anything so far this year that wasn't ugly and had a decent cut, but this fit the bill nicely. A little shinier than I normally like my corduroy, but it'll be a fine replacement for my old jacket.

 

The "tweed" jacket is interesting. It's half lined, with very little structure, which is exactly my style. I'm not a fan of the synthetic fiber, but I also don't realistically expect 100% wool for $99. I normally buy my heavy wools from ralph lauren (polo or rugby), which makes reasonably good stuff. I don't like going much higher end because you only really get to wear wool for maybe 4 months a year here. I'd say that this jacket is not quite as good as the half lined all wool sportcoat that is my go to jacket for fall, owing mainly to the polyester, but the fit and pattern are wonderful.

 

The sweater is mixed. On the one hand, it's easily the best lambswool sweater I've seen for under $50. The color is wonderful. On the other hand, the sleeves are a bit longer than I'd like. I usually buy the banana republic merino wool sweaters for cheap layering, and they're spot on. Here I wind up with a few wrinkles of fabric.

 

These clothes seem to be geared towards tall, slender men. As someone who's somewhat below average height and has much more muscle than most my height, the fits aren't ideal.

 

Considering the price, however, the fits on these things are amazing. I'm going to stick with italian labels for my high end jackets and with MTM for dress shirts, but I don't see any reason why I'd ever bother with the likes of GAP or jcrew or whatever when looking for the cheaper items.

whats it made of? the 100% cotton shirts shrink for me if I put them in the dryer, but the polyester ones dont. if its the 'soft touch' one, i dont know i dont have any of those.

These don't shrink even if you put them in the dryer. the dryer will make the fabric feel less soft though.

Just picked up 3 extra fine merino sweaters/cardigans, a shawl collar cable knit, fair isle vest, and 3 pairs of the slim fit chino's... Anybody have experience with any of these items?
post #6163 of 11578

I tried on some of the extra fine merino cardigans, nice and soft but paper thin, not really for me. The chinos are okay, the material is kind of unpleasant, but the fit is okay and they're a good price.
