The fabric on the dry fit is average/bad but it doesn't really affect appearance much. Fortunately I have a few of the normal cotton t-shirts which fit similarly (better even) but are 100% cotton, not poly/cotton blend. I just wish they would keep the shoulder and sleeve width of the dry-fit, but slim down the chest/waist a little bit. But they're not making t-shirts for me.

same here.

i'm buying a bunch of the dry packaged tees for bumming around, but i wish they were about -1" in width and +1" in length.

They have 32 length in various items...just not all items.

I have nothing against longer tees, it does make tucking easier, but I felt like the shirts were absurdly long. The sleeves bothered me more than the V. I also wasn't really that impressed with the fabric. I think I read on here that their "premium" tees vary in quality depending on what season and packaging they're from, so maybe I just didn't get a particularly impressive batch.

 

I wouldn't mind a little slimming/taper with the dry fit, but honestly those are working fine for me as undershirts - can't see the v neck at all with the top button undone. I need to check out the Heat Tech stuff ASAP.

Got the +J down in, it's awesome. I wish +J was still around frown.gif I was reading the tags on the jacket and saw again their mission statement:

Luxury will be simplicity. Purity in design, beauty, and comfort for all. Quality for the people. Basics are the common language.

They really nailed that and I still think there is a distinct lack of something like that in fast fashion. Uniqlo comes close with their premium and extra fine stuff...

Hm, maybe mine was a different batch, but what I noticed was that even if it was long, it was quite tapered, so unless you made it a point to pull it as far down as possible, it rested at a good length.

Can you or someone else throw a fit pic of the +j down or some pics of it?  The pics on the site make things look better than they are.  Is it more matte or shiny?  I'm still over the fence about it since I've always seen down coats in a negative light.  Thanks in advance.

Heattechs fit me much tighter than this, anyone else? or maybe i need to size up. It fits like an underarmour shirt

I'll post a fit pic of the +J down jacket. Nothing really special, it's more function over form and super comfortable

^ same.  It's a layer, fits really fitted out of the bag.  TTS.

 

But, once you wash it and dry it and wash it and dry it, it loosens up quite a bit.  Not to the point of sloppiness, but just not as tight.

gotcha. I like my undershirts to be super tight anyways, since most most shirts are semi fitted. I think the sleeves are intentionally shorter on the longsleeves too.. so it doesn't poke out of shirts.

The +J down is more matte than shiny. The black though is more of a really dark navy than a true black, but overall it is a nice jacket, especially at the price they are selling. Think I paid $120 last year for mine when it was on sale.

J+ down, TTS or size down?  Can't really tell from online measurements.  

post #6628 of 12691
I'm a slim medium. I got a small, I can wear it over a undershirt and flannet and knit. Probably not over a jacket. Feel like a mediums arms would be too long and torso too wide.

The UU long cardigan is awesome. Love it
post #6630 of 12691
I would say TTS for the +J down, it is fairly slim, more so than the slim fit ultralight down I believe. Might post a fit if I have time of it, I have a 41" chest and the Medium is a bit snug, can't really layer to much other than a few thin layers underneath.
