Thanks. I'll go ahead and have them shortened and tailored with a straight hem so they can be worn untucked casually in that case.

Ok listen up info re: new grosgrain regular vs slim fit oxfords.

Body slimness is the same oddly enough in my mediums, p2p for both is 21.5". Noticeably narrower in shoulder which creates less fabric fold on either side of pits, Nils go for regular fit. The slims are a little narrower in the bicep area and the overall length is a touch shorter. The hems are different shapes, surprised nobody mentioned this. The regulars have a rounded hem (scalloped) vs the slims which have a thom browne style hem and while worn are more fitted (less ballooning) than the regular fit though when I quickly measured the width at the bottom button they appeared similar. When worn however, there is a huge difference so I will be keeping the slim mediums since I like my button-ups fitted and they are flossable untucked. You can't beat this ocbd with a $200 budget if you tried (except my beams which I slightly prefer). The regular fit would need to get the sides taken in since they flare in an unflattering manner. Also, the measurements on the linen cardigan are deceptively accurate. When I tried it on I was like man this thing is huge, big stretch factor in this particular knit. I didn't think there was any way the specs were right but when I measured they were. I would definitely get the medium in this instead of the large. The beige color is fucking great for a 40 dollar cardigan.

Here are a couple quick pics I snapped. Cardigan is going back, ya I know it looks terrible.

Excellent post sans shoes

Was going to pick up that cardigan too. Looks lighter than I'd like though, wish it was a darker beige. Looks perfect for the office fwiw

Anyone know about the thickness of the fabric on these slim fit chinos online? http://www.uniqlo.com/us/store/lifewear/men-slim-fit-chino-flat-front-pants/075305-32

 

I have two pairs of UNIQLO chinos, one from this past summer and one from this past december. The pair I picked up in december is a LOT thinner and I prefer the thicker pair. Sorry to be so vague about this. The thicker pair can actually stand up to rain; the thin stuff gets drenched and sticks to your skin.

I bought two pairs of these.  They are pretty thin.  They fit very well and look good but wrinkle easily.

any chance you can share the measurement of the leg opening. Online photo looks really slim like maybe 7" or less.

So the lack of a box pleat no longer bothers you? How tall are you, still seems kind of long to wear untucked? Or maybe its just the angle of the picture

The Uniqlo shirts run long.  I have mine shortened by the tailor.

How often do restocks seem to happen online? Would like to pick up the sweat long sleeve in a few colors but all they have is black in S right now.

 

I also might try some denim. How is the slim, quality and fit wise? Are the waists TTS or vanity? I wear APC Petit Standards and find Dockers Alpha Chinos a tad loose for some reference.

By all reports new denim is terrible and not worth trying

post #8218 of 11546

Slims fit me exactly the same as NS in the same size (meaning size down 1 or 2), post hot wash/dry.  30 Slims fit me slightly slimmer than 32 Alphas.

 

Quality does leave something to be desired (it's not HORRIBLE though), but at the same time, I don't know what you guys expect for 50 bucks.

 

One thing to be mentioned that might turn people off is the presence of some spandex (at least in the black overdyes); I personally don't really care but it could be an issue for some people.

Are Uniqlo's oxford shirts pima cotton? Or "supima" as some other brands like to say.

I thought this as well, but I ended up buying the black OD slims and they are comfy as fuck. Like wearing pyjamas.
