Thoughts on the Cotton Linen Blouson? Thinking either light orange or dark green...

Just received my first Uniqlo items ever--4 OCBDs, blue/pink/white/grey--and wow they are a pleasant surprise. OTR tailored fit and quality is great. Will have to consider checking out other items from them as well. Chinos and jeans decent? Perhaps regular Tees and henleys/sweaters?

Slim fit chinos are pretty good, socks (4 for 12 variety) are great, premium tees 2pack are good and that's about it. It's all downhill from here since the oxfords are one of their best things.

how slim are their chinos? I remember I tried on a vintage ones and they were way too big. How they compared to say W+H or club monaco slim fits? Hate how they don't list the hem measurements anymore ...

top block is sorta anti fit and taper a lot below the knees, I'm not a huge fan because the transition is a little too severe

on my 32s the hem is 7.5 which is pretty fucking small for a guy my size so i don't think you will have any complaints about the hem

The current slim fits are about the same as my W+H westpoints, but just a hair bit slimmer.

I got the green one to try on.  The material is actually really nice, but not a fan of the fit, might have to size down or it's likely just intended to be blousy.  Going back for sure.

socks and underwear are staples.  socks for sure.  the marled ones are really nice.  chinos are OK at best.  material is pretty thin.  I have the MiJ jeans and I like them a lot better than APCs, but they aren't as nice as Japan Blues.

The slim chinos taper through the leg, but it has a little too much room in the seat (sort of droopy, imo).  Maybe because I could have sized down.  Rise is pretty big, almost trouser-like.  Vintage ones were gigantic in comparison though.

How often do they restock the online store for jeans? All they have are 35's, which are apparently 37" actual waists.

.500 this time around with Uniqlo

6 dress shirts
3 of which are advertised as L/S but clearly hit 3/4 of my arm.

Sort of sad frown.gif

shit. were any of them the slim fit ones?

Actuallly, the 2 slim fit dress shirts I picked up (66 blue and 09 black aka "mini dots") were fine.

It was the 3 Easy Care shirts that had sleeve length issues. I think this is bad oversight on QC.

Dress shirts in general are pretty ace. About to drop by the tailor to get the 3 darted in the back.

A word of caution, slim fit and "regular fit" are different in terms of the shoulder, sleeve width, and chest. The body around torso area is about the same, but when I get them tailored I have to separate it out as I don't need much darting to account for the chest in slim fit dress shirts. Even the "regular fit" I ask to take in the chest very minimally. I just need the double darts to help with the blousing affect in the torso / waist. Just realized this too after trying out the new slim fit and some older ones I picked up. For a suit I would go with the "regular fit" as it is more relaxed and I'll be wearing a jacket for a good part of the day. Otherwise, everyday office wear I would take the slim fit as it is a bit more fitted all around.

OCBD for the weekends.

Ordered some spring trousers in their cotton/poly blend and wool/poly blend. Arriving Friday so I can give a review of them then.

Still think Uniqlo is best bang for the buck if you want to get some lowkey work attire. You can step up your suiting, but for everyday wear it works well.
