I think it depends on how you'll be using it...it isn't a heavyweight down jacket, so won't likely stand up to sub-freezing temps.

that said, wore my vest out on saturday and was comfortable with it and a heavyweight hoody down into the upper 40s

Thanks. Was more interested in overall fit, quality, etc. I assume it's typical of Uniqlo but some pieces, as have been noted, represent better than average value for the price.

Seconded on the wool blend outerwear feeling rough and cheap.

38" chest is probably a small in the blazers. I'm a 36 and wear XS.

I think it's much better than average value. I have no idea how it holds up in the long run, but I used the UL jacket as both a layering and outer piece (depending on weather) hiking inIceland last month and it was great. I was wary of the waterproof coating abilities at the price point, but it shed light precip really well, and the construction seems pretty close, if not on par, to the Patagonia-level tech brand ultralights. Also to note, I have not owned, but have handled the Patagonia UL sweater iterations and even with an outlet being near me and I could get one for half off, but I got the Uniqlo one for $40 and it was well worth it. If I did it again I'd by Uniqlo at full retail.

Wanted to like UL and its probably perfectly functional but the cut isn't doing it for me; very wide armholes and overall blocky shape

How are the cashmere sweaters of this year? Do you think they're worth $80/$100?

 

Also, I have noticed that Uniqlo did away with all the colors for the slim-fit chino pants. Is it just a seasonal thing?

The one I have is from last year's slim UL line (and I'm nowhere near as skinny as some guys on this forum), but for me the fit is really good.

Uniqlo sizing is kind of fucked, I'm normally a large but wear a M in uniqlo button ups and a small in the ul down. It's pretty slim and fitted which is the look i was going for with it.

The new heavy gauge cardigans are exactly what I've been looking for. Just wish they were 100% wool

Horrible--you can already see them starting to pill.

you sized wrong...mine in L (as the other uniqlo pieces I have) is fitted, armholes are a tad too small and I don't even have particularly big arms
