I have a pair of the vintage, two pair of the slim. Slim are made from a thinner, lighter material, not the more "traditional" textile found with the vintage. Kind of like it for summer time. Vintage is fairly straight legged, slim is tapered. I also have built up calves from running, and the slim fits will hug your calves. But the addition of spandex doesn't make it feel constricting.
Seems pretty normal. Retail stores are typically a season ahead.

+1. Uniqlo's known for it's quick turnover of items in the stores and it's now the beginning of August - summer's over in another month. This is typically the time that stores begin to bring in A/W stock.
The rapid turnover of some lines is quite frustrating at times.
A few years back, when I was in Japan for a month, I went in to Uniqlo when I first arrived and saw plenty of v-neck merino sweaters. Then, a week later, I saw some really nice, cashmere-blend, half-zip, very light sweaters. They were great, and I bought a couple of them. Two weeks later, shortly before I was about to leave, I went back to see if I could get some of the cashmere-blend half-zips as presents, only to find that they'd all disappeared after being in the stores for a whole two-and-a-half weeks or so!
The same thing happened the last time I was there with some Star Wars print t-shirts. I picked up a few for my son and was told that they'd only recently arrived in store and yet, when I went back a couple of weeks later, there were none to be found at all - they'd been replaced by a Monsters University t-shirt range.
Anyone take a look at the new cashmere blend roll edge sweater or the men's leggings? At only 10% cashmere, I'm not expecting the sweater to be the pinnacle of quality, but I do enjoy how slutty the neck is. Thinking of just wearing it by itself.
