something you should grow out of when you're 18 or at least 22, but not everyone does.
I disagree. It has its merits.

do you have a sofa cover too?

I must be a slob, sometimes I wear a T 3 times before washing. Not a problem in LA dry heat.

Hot as balls in NYC, not a single Medium linen shirt to be found. Does anyone wear airism T's by themselves? I need something cool and can't try them on without not being able to return.

You can go to the store and they have samples you can try without opening an airism package.  As for wearing an airism on its own. I bought a white one yesterday and it is definitely see through and a little shiny and I wouldn't say you can wear it on its own for the most part.  Just my opinion though.

About to make a Uniqlo order before my trip to NYC, a few questions:

1. are the Premium Cotton tees worth the $4 upgrade? What's the sizing compared to the packaged ones?

2. How to size the relaxed twill shorts? I'm a true 32" waist, S or M?

3. Are the slim oxfords really that slim? For a slim 38 (5' 11" w/ longish arms), should I go small or med?

Thanks!

Why not just buy everything at Uniqlo in NYC?

Some things you just won't be able to find in store right now if its been available for a while, like the premium cotton T's for example. I drop by the 5th ave uniqlo 2 or 3 times a month, most recently yesterday. The in-store stock for those is very minimal compared to the website.

I'm not sure if the arms will be long enough for you in the small for the slim oxfords. They are OK on me and I'm only 5'5". I usually wear a 32 or 33 sleeved dress shirt.

Soho - lower Broadway.

Used to be packed when it was the only one in town, but now folks (especially tourists) seem to descend on the midtown locations.

I went to the Soho one a couple of days ago and half the 1st floor was roped off. Don't know if it was just for the day or for construction...didn't seem to effect the availability of clothes.

i like SOHO location because it's easy to find what you're looking for there since it's smaller and i've gone there everytime i've been to NYC for the past five years

i believe the 5th Ave. location is the largest of the three...been there a couple of times and looked for specific items and had to ask a SA to cease my aimless wondering

despite it's location the 34th Uniqlo was not at all busy the couple of times i was there...the first time i went there it was so dead that there was more registers open than customers in the store in eye shot

the best thing to do would be to go to whichever is more convenient based on your other destinations...if looking for something specific they don't have it at the store you're at a SA can check stock at other locations

Was just at the SOHO one also and it was closed in areas because they're preparing the release of their fall/winter stuff.

SA at SOHO store told me they don't stock half of the quantity the 5th ave store does, nor do they have complete selection.
