I also tried on the Dry Jacket in both medium and small. It is meant to be worn light i.e. with a tee. I could have sized well in either TBH though I think I preferred the size small.

I usually wear 17.5 shoulder and 21" chest (though my naturally chest is probably more like 19")

I don't understand how those sleeves can be so long on you...

He is 5'7 and wearing a medium.

I am 5'10 and even a small was a bit long past my wrist bone. Seems natural.

OP should size up on the jeans (though Uniqlo has a tendancy to stretch a lot depending on composition) and size down on the jacket. The cotton-linen jacket is roomier than the polyester blend as the latter hugs the body more.

Here's the fit on the medium.  The bottom photo was when I wore it out to a show with some friends.  With it buttoned up, it's tight.  Since I'm a noob, I'm speculating that it's tight in the waist which in turn is making the bottom flare out.  Thoughts?  Can it be fixed or should I just burn it in a fire?

I'm going to wear a better fitting shirt to try with the jacket.  The shirt I was wearing was a tad tighter then I usually wear.  I'll also go ahead and order a size down to see if it helps at all.  I do like how the pants fit even though it looks a bit tight in the thighs.  They felt great every where and even though my hands never go in my pockets, I had no issues with them going in.  The material is quite stretchy.  With my next order I'll size up one and see if I like the fit better or not.

 

My current measurements are;

Shoulder: 18.75, Chest: 39, Arm: 20, Inseam: 27, Thigh: 23

 

I appreciate the comments and help.  Thank you!

 

*Side note: I've never been to a tailor before.  I'm trying to acquire more information on what needs to be done to my clothing before I go in.  There is a highly recommended place nearby that I searched multiple forums for so at least I have that base covered.

Could you perhaps confirm or deny that the measurements on their site are accurate? (Also, is the jacket darted/slimmed through the waist at all? It doesn't look like it in the pic you posted or their site, but every other jacket I've got from Uniqlo is darted...)

 

Here are the measurements on Cotton Linen Medium and Dry Light Weight Medium.

Got Premium V-Neck T's in.  Pretty nice. I found them sized slightly smaller than the Dry Package ones, but the fit is a lot better imo - a little shorter, a little narrower in shoulders.  A M works on me but is sorta tight and I'm not about that tight t shirt life, an L is a nice, loose relaxed fit that I like a lot more.  I fill out the top half but not the bottom half which I don't mind, especially if I'm gonna be wearing them with shorts anyways.  Probably fit trimmer after a wash.  5'9 160, 40" chest

 

Also, navy seems to fit bigger than white which I don't understand but yea ymmv

 

Also: Men's "Leggings" (lol) = win, surprisingly.  I got the khaki color.  M = 30-33", L = 33-36", but they're sized pretty skinny/taper a lot. They're slimming and probably good for dudes with medium to large thighs (by SF standards) who want something with a taper.   Copped both M and L, wearing the L for now for a less skinny fit/I'm getting fat.  The waist is too big but knee/leg opening area was a little extreme on the M for me, looked fine in pics but too girly for me in motion

Man, that's the last time I'll assume something will shrink in the laundry. Linen shirt didn't shrink at all.

1. How is the sizing? size up, down, tts. I wear a 29 in Uniqlo slim-straight jeans (sized down one) and was thinking of going with a 30 on the cropped pants.

 

2. What would you suggest in terms of color. I'm planning on wearing them this summer with white sneakers and a plain l/s tshirt (usually either navy or lavender)

 

I really like this look, though I'm not big on the khaki color:

 

 

 

3. Also, which of the following two would you suggest.

Snagged two blue slim fit OCBDs at the 34th street store today - they had loads of stock, all sizes it seemed like. I hope they keep these shirts on offer into perpetuity with new color options every so awesome. The fit is so damn great and on sale they're a fucking steal.
post #8815 of 12528

Sale ends tomorrow, so pull the trigger if you still haven't picked up some OCBDs.

1) No idea. If you're that worried, order both and return the one that doesn't fit.
2) What works well with navy and lavender shirts is khaki/beige, but you said you don't like that color.
3. No idea. That last one is sold out in a lot of sizes, though.
post #8817 of 12528

Any advice for sizing on OCBDs? I'm 5'8, 128 lbs

post #8818 of 12528

Check the website for measurements? 

post #8819 of 12528
^^ XS no doubt. Uniqlo measurements have been pretty spot on for everything I've bought.

Did you see any navy XS? They were out of navy in all sizes at both Soho & Fifth Ave a few days ago (also online).
