wolf vs goat before dinner cut, has wide shoulders for the given size in general too.

WvG has really slim shirts but you have to buy into their membership to bring down the inflated price for what it is.

Also, can you confirm/refute the claim from a couple pages back that they shrink a ton? Even in cold wash, hang dry?


Thanks much.

 

Just got 3 medium linens... I washed cold and hang dried and did get some shrinkage... not much though, and just in the width of the chest/body so they fit a tiny bit slimmer after the wash. After the wash the measurements are 18.5" shoulders, 22" chest and 25.5" sleeve.

 

I'm pretty happy with the quality, fit and fabric. Great deal for $20!

 

I'm 6' 180 lbs and they fit really well.

 

Was looking at their oxfords, they have some strange colors...

does anyone know if they started carrying short sleeve henley in any of the NY/NJ stores? I know that they have it on UK site, but it's not yet updated on the US web yet.

Wonderful! That helps a lot. Thank you.

 

Now does anyone have the Small to measure?

Has anyone compared the chambray shirts from uniqlo and J crew? Been debating which one to get and wasn't sure if J Crews worth the extra $$

Not to sound like a broken record but the slim fit oxfords are fantastic. The material and fit are great and I haven't seen any oxfords under $80 maybe even $100 that can compete with these. I was never really that crazy about uniqlo, I always thought their stuff was mediocre except for +J, but these oxfords surprised me. I just hope they don't shrink in the wash.

Does Uniqlo accept returns with tags even though the little plastic wires have been cut?
post #8515 of 12702
YMMV. I've returned some things in the past without the tags attached as long as the supervisors at the time approved it. It's usually just for store credit, which I'm always ok with at uniqlo.

There was also one time where I was flat out denied though.
post #8516 of 12702
I don't know why they should be so strict about returns because of a little tag that can be easily attached, especially since most people would be more than happy with store credit. Just returned an oxford with the tag cut, hope there's no problems.

Slim fit MIJ seem to be not coming back for a while, so I'll place my order later.

 

Just wondering if anyone who has both heattech and airism Ts could compare them quickly. 

 

I have the heattech ones and love them. Looking for a summer option.

Yeah as long as the tag is ok, I don't see the fuss with those plastic bits. I'm also returning a few shirts by mail.

And by the way, their skinny fit "tapered" jeans are really awesome. I've been into the whole raw denim thing and have tried APCs, Naked Famous Elephant 2's, and Samurais but the 2% spandex in Uniqlo's jeans makes it so surprisingly comfortable and it doesn't restrict your movement at all compared to the raw denim everyone is so into. I don't wear my jeans skinny so I just sized up to a 33 and it lists as 35 waist which fits all right and the legs are not close to being skin tight so it works for me. Best jeans I've ever had as far as fit and comfort. Would recommend.

I have both heatech and airism Ts in small.  Both are clingy (not a complaint), thin, and are exactly as described on each page.  The airism shirt is thinner and extremely light, and wicks away sweat better than my old Under Armour cold weather gear.  I have two and use one as an undershirt and one as a running shirt for warmer days.  I'd have to say that I'm more than impressed with both offerings and their price cannot be better.  Airism underwear is also fucking incredible.

 

@whoever asked, my XS linen shirt shrunk from the measurements of a slim fit M to a S regular shirt.  I didn't trust whoever said they shrink a lot but they were right.  I still don't think I'll be buying any Uniqlo linen offerings in the future as I don't like the material.

Did the linen soften up after wash? It's pretty scratchy out of the box.
