Darts are fine if there's no box pleat, if there's a box pleat you can have it stitched down but that makes it a lot slimmer than you'd think (or at least what I thought). Had one done to try it out and can't even fit into it anymore.

I don't believe slim fit have a box pleat.

I've darted the regular fit oxfords (with box pleat), and it was fine. They've been my go-to shirts since, but I'm starting to outgrow them.

Apparently Uniqlo is going to stop making their MIJ denim? Read this on /r/uniqlo.

It was decent enough for the price, but I ended up buying the Japanese Selvedge denim that was made in China, as it seemed nicer denim. Haven't seen them for a couple of years though.

I have their MIJ denim from this season--really like it--think it was like $80ish.  

 

But if discontinued, no big deal...so many denim choices out there...

Not the most flattering cut either.

Sorry to ask another OCBD question but I've been through most of this thread and can't figure this out.

I'm 6'1", 190 lbs. I just returned an order of medium slim oxfords - although the size chart suggested they had similar measurements to other oxfords I have (J.Crew medium, Brooks Brothers extra-slim fit 16x35), these were just way too tight. I could button them but not move. I realize now that the lack of box pleat had a lot to do with this.

Regular-fit oxfords have since restocked - so, should I go with mediums or larges? The 22.8" body width for a medium *should* be plenty (and the 24.4" for a large seems like it should be way too much).

just go to the large slim fit. i'm sure you'll prefer the waist suppression of the slim fit compared to the regular billowed out ocbd

There are other factors besides the box pleat into how slim fit a shirt is, mainly how high or low the arm holes are. Both J Crew and BB have low arm holes.

Why are the oxfords so damn tight in the forearms? Went from a slim fit large to a regular and there is no difference in the sleeve. About to give up.

I'd be disappointed. Their regular fit MIJs are my go-to jean.

Measurements on oxfords are wrong apparently you didn't go through the thread.

Stopped by the new West Nyack store. They had tons of MIJ denim. $39.90 grand opening promo until 3/24.

Edit: They may be the regular non-selvedge ones. Looks like the MIJ Regular Fits are $9.90, according to their website. Won't be able to go again anytime soon since I was passing by on my way to NYC.
