Curious as to whether anyone has seen this at the SF store:

Think I saw it last time but it was still pretty warm back in September

In Asia it's just relabelled, cuts are the same, it's just the size labels are different, e.g.

Asia S = UK/US XS
Asia M = UK/US S
Asia L = UK/US M
Asia XL = UK/US L

etc.

Apparently its just a single layer shell and it sucks too.

To be honest, I don't even really know anymore.  Trip to Shanghai (converted to US sizes):

 

Day 1) Went to Uniqlo and tried on older oxford (in the darker grey they had) without colorful collar trim in S for the hell of it, even though I knew it wouldn't fit.  Extremely tight in shoulders/chest/laughably short arms, body fit was OK seemed a little long.

Day 7) Went to Uniqlo and tried on newer oxford w/ colored collar trim (in seafoam) in S because they were on sale for the equivalent of around $18.  Fit wasn't that bad in shoulders/chest/back but arms were still laughably short, body fit pretty decent and length seemed ok (not sure on length differences, they're probably the same).  Also, the newer oxford colors really pop IMO.  I liked the dark-blue-grey (replacing the darker grey) and the light blue (replacing the more white-ish light blue).

 

Maybe I just shrunk on vacation?  I don't know what to say, hopefully other people have more feedback for you guys lol or just order some yourselves and figure it out

Uniqlo newbie here. I feel like it will be a good brand to pick up some basics from. Can anyone help me out with sizing? 5'7 130lbs, about 14 neck, 35 chest, 29 waist.

 

I figure some button ups/flannels, crewneck, basic tees would be a good idea. Also perhaps pants but do they have any slim fits that taper?

 

Also, does anyone have opinions on the down jackets? And do most of you buy from the US online store because a lot of posts I've skimmed through seem like everyone is using UK. I figure I will just buy a ton of stuff once to see what fits and they take the $7.00 loss to return what I don't keep.

You're similar to me (I'm 5'6" 130lbs)...

Anyway, XS in shirts (OCBD, Flannels, Broadcloth, etc.) , S in knits (T's, Sweats, Sweaters), 29 or 30 in bottoms, S in base layer stuff.

I don't own any outerwear from uniqlo.

^ I have a similar build; I'm an XS in Uniqlo outerwear. ClamBakeSkate covered the rest.

I'm 5' 6" and 125, XS in oxfords, XS in jackets (blazers and suits), 29 in pants.

Couple of questions about Uniqlo:

1) How often do they restock? Eyeing a pair of jeans right now and I'm assuming those get restocked fairly quickly? A little disappointed though that it seems like EVERYTHING in my size is sold out.

2) Are jeans sizes between U.S. and Asia (specifically, Hong Kong) the same? I have a pair of slim fit straight jeans from Uniqlo Hong Kong and they fit me PERFECTLY on the waist after hemming. The label says the size is "28 (70cm)." Is this the same as a 28 waist in U.S. sizes? I live in NY but haven't been to the 5th ave store in a while, but I think I did try size 28 jeans and was horrified at how big the waist was on me for some reason?

1. They restocked some things fast in November but I haven't seen much recently. Jeans are chronically out and never restocked. Abandon hope nod[1].gif

Got another order in. Another ultra light jacket....love my first one. Some heattech long sleeve Ts (you guys weren't kidding...awesome). One of the 80%Merino/20% Cashmere V neck sweaters. Love it. Really nice feel, midweight. No brainer for $30. Would have bought a bunch if they weren't limited sizes. Bigger guys (40+ chest) should def kop. Just got another one.

Are the sales online the same as in stores? I think i'm going with suddenlee again because things like jeans and Smalls are hard to come by the online store.
