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.
Wait what?
Maybe the grey pair I got was mis-tagged or some sort of screw up but they fit tiny. Like a full size smaller than my t-000s that I bought last spring and fall and way smaller than the same size in levis.

Gotta agree with all of this regarding the new black skinnies, mine haven't really stretched much outside of knees and i've worn them hard/a lot in the past 2 weeks. No wash yet, they're still stacking a bit weird tho (got 34 inseam when I'm more of a 31). Hopefully they'll settle soon

These are fit pics in heattech in size small which probably are the same size as the premium fit tees:

Yeah, the "waxy" look of the black skinny jeans was pretty minimal. Not surprised it'd wash off.

 

Airism and HeatTech shirts are the perfect proportions for undershirts. Great length, material feels pretty good. Gotta stock up.

Reedo - I got the 34 inseam too and I'm 5'11".  Stacks are ehhh haha I feel like some days they are great and others they are all over the place.  They look much better (amazing actually) with boots underneath to help shape them, I've found.  I have to wear 32 inseam if I'm wearing low/mid shoes
