post #8926 of 12362
So okay I got a bunch of those slim OCBDs that went on sale. They're good. I don't know what people are expecting but they're good. Clean trim fit with plenty of length in the sleeves and body. Might even throw them in the dryer. None of that sloppy wide neck action from last year either. Measurements were pretty accurate and they took a little off the fabric's weight which lends them a more normal hand for what it is, if that makes any sense. Anyway, they're perfect for what they are. They just need to come out with a lavender version...

Also grabbed some of the white pima cotton good grade whatever tees. Said yes to the crews, no to the v necks. The V in the neck just wasn't looking right. Whatever. Asia Uniqlo definitely does not have these, they got a nice touch. Smooth. At a ten a piece no complaints at all. Well okay but one thing: the white is more of an eggshell off white shade than a pure white. No matter tho, they feel good on the back.

Ordered some boxer briefs as well. Wow. Honestly I have no idea what they're doing because each of the size L versions I bought is different. Airism is different from low rise airism is different from cotton. That's just the waist alone, nothing about the cut. Literally. Each of the waist bands is a different size. Anyway, they're close enough.

So yeah. Definitely size down one from Asian Uniqlo sizes across the board (well maybe half a size or so for the underwear. Whatever that means. Seems like a crap shoot in that department). But good stuff overall. Very solid.

I tried on the seersucker sport coat or whatever they call it and its really nice. Tried a M and it fits snug buttoned up and I'm 155 6'. Plenty of striped colors to choose from like blue beige etc.

I also talked to a SA and they have started only making their straight cut jeans in 34 length to promote their in house tailoring. The light weight denim is a combo of cotton and linen. Didn't try them on yet but will tomorrow.

Socks are nice as usual. Will be going to 5th ave store tomorrow to stock up.

If anybody has q's let me know.

As I've mentioned before in this thread...

US/UK sizing labels are just relabelled Asian ones when referring to like for like products. For example:

US/UK XS = Asia S
US/UK S = Asia M
US/UK M = Asia L
US/UK L = Asia XL
US/UK XL = Asia XXL

Are you talking about their short-sleeved ones? Cause I have one of em and the weight is perfect. Definitely suitable for summer IMO

They removed cotton completely from their low rise boxer briefs and replaced it with polyester. The sizing on these new briefs are not consistent so becareful. At least the cotton low rise boxer briefs were all consistent in sizing.

I too get mixed feelings about the v-necks at Uniqlo. I found Express got better v-necks but they are expensive.

Is it just me or are the collars on Uniqlo's OCBD relatively tall?

I think it might be just you. I was thinking today that they are kind of small, medium sized at best.

I agree with jpc9. I just wish the slim fit uniqlo oxfords were a little bit bigger. They're slightly too small in medium. I may try a normal medium. Hopefully the body isn't too baggy.

Oh, I was referring to their regular fit OCBD's. Here's a pic of the collar--does it seem any different than the slim fit version? I'm wearing size S.

These EFC dress shirts are great for work, but Uniqlo needs to stop using button-down collars for dress shirts.

slim fit collar looked just as big to me compared to your photo. which to me looks big reason why i returned the ones i had.

Collars soften up in the wash.
