How urgently do you need them? If you need them right away, go for the Express ones if they fit. If not, wait and play with Uniqlo's fits. The polycotton ones on the site run slightly larger than the cotton ones they sell in spring/summer. Between those two fits, you should be able to find one that works for you.

Bleh got all the new oxfords, hopefully that blue isn't teal.. Also got another color in the chambray shirt.. and sweatpants. I think all I'm going to wear this summer is oxford shirt tucked in + raleigh denim + aldens.

Thanks.

 

I'm still not decided, but I don't think I'll be able to try on the Express shirts after all.  The mall is lousy with last minute shoppers.  It was on the news.  Cars are aggressively circling the parking lot.  I would need a wheel man just to get inside.

 

For now I might end up placing an order from Express online, trying their large.  If it doesn't fit I'll eat the shipping and do an in-store return after the Holidays, trying on their medium in the process.

 

Can anyone else vouch for the Uniqlo medium v-neck fitting 44+?

post #7385 of 12688

if you are okay with eating the shipping, why not just order from uniqlo?  for 44 you don't want a medium, you want a large at least.  uniqlo >>>>>>>>x1000 than express

 

and get the premium tees not the dry package stuff

Didn't want to copy and paste my thoughts about Express into the Uniqlo thread but it does give this post some context.

It would save me a lot of time and money if I thought that the v-necks by Uniqlo could work just as well for me, but unfortunately I won't be able to try one on until I get around to placing a worthwhile order.  And there's a sale going at Express that expires Sunday, so I'm pressed for a decision.

Please forgive the machismo of this question, but what do you think is the largest chest measurement that would fit into a Uniqlo medium?  I read a post somewhere by a guy who was 45" and he said he wore a large by personal preference but a medium was wearable.  The pit to pit on the Uniqlo v-neck sizing chart is 21" for a medium, so I have my doubts.

Hopefully someone can vouch for the capacity of a medium, because the large would probably be too long in the body, very nearly too wide in the shoulders, and far too billowy.  If someone could please verify that a medium would work for a 44" chest measurement then I might hold off on this Express purchase until I can try a Uniqlo v-neck on for size.

Thanks again for answering my earlier question about waist sizes.

I have a 44" chest also. Large is your size.

I've got a 39" chest and the broadcloths with the back pleat stitched down fits me good. Although another inch or two I'd have to let the pleat out. I got a love hate with the broadcloth shirts, the fabric is sort of papery.. but for the $19 i paid w/e

yours are the new ones or previous version? and you're a small in those right?
post #7393 of 12688
The ones I have are from October/November. I'm a medium.

I don't want to order a solitary v-neck from Uniqlo because I don't expect it to fit properly in either a medium or a large, and I'm waiting for their double zip hoodie to restock so I can place an order that qualifies for free shipping with two pairs of sweatpants.

 

Also, it seems like the premium tees only come in white, black, and grey.  I want to get colors.

 

 

This is the shirt from Express that I'm looking at.  I've read almost nothing but bad things about Express as a brand, but this particular item seems to have a decent reputation.

Check out the color selection.

 

According to my research, it runs small, slim, and short in the body.  Their large is supposed to feel like something between a medium and a large, so that seems perfect for me.  I'm worried that the Uniqlo large would hang too low in the body and flare out at the waist, regardless of its quality/value.

Good man.  How does it fit in the waist?

They don't taper. But it's a t-shirt, man. Stop overthinking it. Just order one and see.
