FYI, all the flannels are back to $29 on their website.

 

BUT, all the EF broad cloth shirts are $19 now.  Lots of sizes...for now.  Would get more, but already have like 12 of these shirts.

The fit is middle of the road - not too slim, but not baggy. I just bought them in navy (with a matching jacket, to assemble a suit). I am 5'8" and 160lbs. Size 32 fits great. (jacket is M, fits great too)

Guilty as charged on both accounts. These +J pants are slim, think I had to size up to a 34, but they just look weird in that picture. Wool is a bitch itchy, not nearly as itchy as the lambswool stuff and not as comfortable as the +J heavy gauge shawl collard jacket.

Any stand out colors of the EF broad cloth shirts?

Sam Spade, what's your chest measurement? Do you wear oxfords in M? Thanks
post #6185 of 11672
Hmm been awhile since I measured my chest, guessing 39-40"? I wear a M in all my oxfords, the slim M ones fit me the best because the non ones fit OK around but have a lot of fabric in the stomach area.

but yea i recommend the shawl collard cardigan, I'm digging it. It will never replace the +J shawl collard jacket, even though by now it's pilled so much, but that just gave it more character.

I'm glad you posted this, and I feel better about ordering the medium in that cardigan.  I'm 5'9, 170 with a muscular build and broad shoulders especially.

What happened to the slim fit chinos?

I wanted to buy the one in burgundy but i can't seem to find it on the site anymore

Dbear, are you a small in those or your usual M? Measurements indicate these shirts are bigger than oxfords.

I like the last one. First two are errors frown.gif.

I have 1 medium in the broadcloth shirts. It is slightly roomy, due to the pleat on the back, I have sewn these down in the past and waiting for a free day to do it on this.

All the links work for me. Sometimes you have to select the address and hit enter or refresh

I only have the regular oxford shirts and they have the same measurements (on the website) in a medium.  I don't have any of the "slim fit" oxford shirts.  

 

For $29.90, it was a no brainer, I cleared out a bunch of mediums in nice colorways in the store.  Then, a week later, they are $19.90 and it's downright stealing, cleared out all the colorways I wanted that I could find in a medium.  Expect this stuff to sell fast online.  I don't think the flannel lasted very long, and I think these shirts are way better.  

 

Well, I have a bunch of GBV and Epaulet shirts in my closet, but nothing beats this at $19.90.  I haven't worn anything other than Uniqlo since it opened.  But then again, everything is new and fresh, check back in 6 months, maybe be sick of it.  No matter how much I like EP, when you can buy like 7-8 Uniqlo shirts for 1 EP, it's just crazy.

Yea, I'm gonna have to stock up on some more. I think my next job after this will be a bit more relaxed, so I think I might be moving away from OCBD all the time. Just need to decide if I should stick with mediums or try to fit into a small. Getting that box pleat sewed down is only like $9 around here.

Is anything from Uniqlo a "must-buy"? I remember the guy from the Most Exerent blog saying their chinos were pretty good.

I will travel to NYC soon, and thought about stopping by. I don't have a Uniqlo store where I'm from.

I don't like slim fit pants, though. My thighs are big.

^^ The basics from uniqlo are a good buy. Stuff like socks, underwear, undershirts, etc. People also seem to like the heattech and airism but I've never handled those.

Uniqlo is just so popular because the quality is better than gap and the Euro fast fashion places and it is cheap. I'd wear a lot of their stuff if I had to dress business casual to work. I liked stuff from their +J collaboration line more though. Wish I had gotten trousers and shirts when it was still available.
