Thank you fellow SF'ers.

There is a HUGE difference between their $9.90 "premium" t shirts and the $5.90 dry package ones. Night and day. No one should be buying the $6 crap. Not just the thickness of the fabric but the cut/fit is so much better. I don't think they should even sell the $6 ones as they reflect so poorly on the brand; couldn't believe how bad they were.

The premiums are still relatively thin but much better quality and sort of like the AA/woot shirts except a bit slimmer it seems.

I would go with XS for the OCBD I'm about 40 chest and wearing Smalls. Linens run larger than the OCBDs... but XS is the smallest. There are different sizing for Linen shirts at Uniqlo. They might both be XS but one is smaller than the other so make sure to look at the size charts for that particular page.

ah thanks, would of thought that you'd be a medium at least in the slims. looking at these linen shirts, probably gonna try XS.

Can anyone share their experiences with Uniqlo's blazers? I've been looking for a nice khaki/beige blazer to wear with jeans and dark chinos. The dry light weight jacket and linen cotton jacket look decent, but I have no access to a Uniqlo store and therefore can't try them on.

Yeah I'm between the two sizes but S fits better overall. Those are 17" shoulder and these are too: http://www.uniqlo.com/us/store/lifewear/men-premium-linen-long-sleeve-shirt/075347-42-006?ref=search%2Fmen%2520linen%2520shirt

There's one more linen shirt page that starts at 17.3 for the XS.

The top of the pockets flipped down in a weird way but should be fixed with a quick iron on low. So far, I'm a fan. Thighs are borderline too tight but the way the fabric ripples, it doesn't look overly skinny. Waist is definitely a big large, go down 1.

Nice, they must be the same as the premium ones from a few years back. Do you know how they fit compared to the dry packaged ones? I have a 40" chest, 31" waist and wear a size small since they run big, but lately they've been getting tight in the chest/shoulders. Last time I ordered a premium cotton shirt, they ran quite a bit smaller than the dry packaged.

they finally restocked the slim oxfords in orange and light blue/turquoise in smaller sizes
