Are the collars on the slim fits still wimpy?
post #8132 of 11498
Fuck. Just accidentally dried all my black heattech leggings, which are of course sold out. Does anyone make anything similar?

Debating between the shawl beige linen and the shawl beige cotton/acrylic. Prefer the lighter color of the acrylic one but cotton/linen is probably a better material.

i was wondering the same

my slim fits from a couple years ago the collar is but then again, overall, the fabric is a bit lighter than any other season oxfords i've touched from uniqlo

anyone who has the slim fit earth tones or will be getting them post some pics and science, please

the size chart for them says the collar is 16.5 for a size medium ffffuuuu.gif

Those look markedly more tapered at the waist than the one I bought when the webstore dropped

No slim fits in store at Fifth Ave yet--was told probably Monday. @afixedpoint or others, are they a thinner fabric than the reg fit grosgrain? I wouldn't want to go much thinner than the grosgrain fabric, whose collar roll is weak compared to the old oxfords. I hate that giant box pleat on the reg fits though, makes me look like a hunchback... And is the gray a true neutral gray like the old oxfords, or the new blue/steel gray of the grosgrain reg fits?

Had a look at the sportcoats, they are starting to stock some reg fit linen in store, but didn't have any xs nor matching pants. The linen/cotton blend sportcoats in many colors also look decent, but the fit was huge on the xs i tried on (in chest and back, shoulders ok). All of the cotton or cotton/poly sportcoats look cheap and shitty.

Cotton/linen cardigans are decent, the large ribbing makes them pretty casual. I've never seen the point of sweaters not made out of wool though, so not for me. I'd stay away from the acrylic ones though--the thick ones from I handled from the winter season felt very cheap.

The fit on the slim fit tapered jeans is totally wack--the 28 I tried on had skinny legs, normal top block, but baggy 30-32 waist. The slim fit straight fit better/normal through waist, top block, thighs, but all the spandex in their cotton ruins them for me. There's not a single pair of Uniqlo pants I would want to wear, they're so goddamn stretchy. Spandex was great for inaugurating the era of tight jeans and yoga pants on girls, but it doesn't belong anywhere near men's pants, esp. jeans. Ruins the drape and they never break in to fit your body. We'll look back on all these 5% spandex jeans like the ubiquity of 100% polyester shirts of the 70s, as a lost generation of clothes.

went ahead and pulled the trigger on the navy, olive, and khaki slim OCBDs in XL (I'm a L in their regular OCBD). hope they work out!
