How is the taper on the chino shorts? My problem with shorts is that they often wing out and are too baggy. Just wondering cause they are on sale.

No winging at all. I have a khaki pair in Medium and they fit straight down

How is the sizing on these? Size down since they look relaxed?

slim/average 6', 37 1/2" chest, ordered them in small and they fit nice, on the looser side.

Got 2 pairs of the new skinny jeans (the ones that replace the T000) and I have to say that I'm impressed.  I freaked when I heard they were being discontinued and bought a bunch of the black t000s, however these new ones have a nicer, mor flattering fit and a heftier cotton weave.  It's true that they come with a bit of a sheen, but after one wash it goes away dramatically and you're left with a solid pair of jeans.  These "new" jeans don't have the massive stretching issues that the T000s in black did, so that's nice. Also, the leg opening is a bit slimmer (about 6.75" for a size 31, compared to 7" on my old T000s).

 

Overall, I actually like these just as much, if not slightly more due to the refined fit and non-massive-stretch issues.

 

Keep in mind, the sheen only applies to the black jeans.  The grey ones that I bought are perfect.

 

For sizing - I wear a 32 in Levi's and got these in a 31 and they fit perfectly.  A bit tight at first but they stretch out slightly within a day or two.

 

Also, their dry-mesh shirts are awesome (order TTS).  The collars are a bit constricting on the crew-necks, so I found the v-necks to be more comfortable for gym-stuff.

 

Finally, for those who still have slim-oxford sizing questions, go TTS on the slims. I have a 39" chest. I wear a small in JCrew oxford, but needed a medium in the Uniqlo slim oxford.  The small was just uncomfortably restricting.  I'm 5'11" and it's just a touch too long - very simple alteration if you plan on wearing it untucked regularly.

 

Hope this helps anyone in a similar situation.

What's the leg opening for the Slim straight jeans in size 31? It's not listed in the measurements.

I had a few japan blazers in XL (~3 years ago?) and had one from China in L. But Japan ones were wools and China was cotton so can't say to be sure. Only other thing I bought In China would be socks. Feel it's been standardized now as they scale up production?

I am also a 38" chest, 150Lbs, 5'5", "athletic" build, but only a 5 drop and take a medium in them. Unless you are skinny I think the small will be too small.

also are the slim fit colour jeans any good?

Thanks, you have very similar measurements to me. Think I will go with medium.
