post #9946 of 12282
am I the only one that was their typical size in all uniqlo shit?

L in v neck sweaters - TTS, though like a more traditional 'slim' fit
L in uld - vest was fitted, armholes slightly too tight; jacket was more relaxed but still decently fitted
L in flannels - kinda like the jacket--decently fitted with some room, though not blousey in the waist
L in hoodie - def fitted, but not uncomfortably so

What do you guys think of this jacket to be worn on really cold days with both brown/grey dress pants and brown shoes, and raw denim and brown boots.

I'm considering Olive or Blue. Just dont know how warm it will be.

The ones you listed on the link are super crap. Very thin see through, drapey, and crappy. Not worth the money...ok maybe $5.

 



You got a pic of you wearing the soft touch long sleeve t-shirt?

I don't know guys. Maybe it works for you but I've tried on typical REI brands where the shoulders, arms, and torso are much more tailored and even though its $200+ I'd still pay the premium to not look like a potato sack. YMMV.

While I'm at it I'll review some stuff from my last order:

Bomber Jacket - It's a $40 jacket but fit is spot on. Should be plenty warm and dry for socal autumns. Did I mention that it's a perfect for a $40 jacket?

Men Seamless Boxer Briefs - Seem to fit even smaller than usual underwear. They're refusing to return because I ripped the packaging to discover that they're tiny. +2 or +3 for sizing.

Corduroy Shirt - Pretty nice but returning because a lot of uniqlo shirting is a tad small on me.

Sweat Room Shoes - Comfy and nice designs for $10. Getting a set for fam.

Wool Blended Slim Flat Front Pants - Non stretchy wool blend that feels pretty hefty. Reordering a size up. Really wish they would bring back the lighter wool blends they had earlier this year. Or even the tasmanian wool which I missed out on. This is really pissing me off, current slacks selection is all northern climate shit.

i ordered the two chunky cardigans as my smoking cardigans by the coast, the shawl collar and stand up collar one since they have free ship

Got the same two cardigans, arriving tomorrow. Will post pics.

I still need to get a few lambswool sweaters. I thought about trying cashmere, but buying cashmere from Uniqlo just doesn't feel right...I'll stick to the cheaper, disposable stuff.

I have one of the shawl collar ones. I sized up to a large, and the fit ended up being spot on -loose and not fitted like their model photos.
I'm a medium in the slim fit oxfords and a large in the efm cardigans.

Quality is acceptable for a beater. You're not going to find a better knit under $100, unless it's on sale or you get lucky on Yoox.

Need to know how itchy/scratchy the cardigans are... TIA

What timing... itchy/scratchy?

Did you go with L?

 

Cashmere feels worse than the merino and is twice the price, I wouldn't bother.

thanks guys yes large on both, didn't notice at first but there are two chunky shawls so I got the patterned one since I'm not a fan of all the placket ribbing on the other though I preferred the speckling on the latter navy.

The thing with the new cardigans is they have poly. I much prefer cotton or wool.

Just got my shawl collar (patterned) and button-up turtleneck cardigans. They feel better than I expected—similar to a couple of wool/cotton blend knits I have. The light gray shawl collar looks even better in person. The navy button-up was a little underwhelming—maybe another color would have helped.

In the end, though, I'm sending both back. I wear medium in pretty much all Uniqlo stuff but should have gone with a large. Medium is fitted, though not too much, but a looser fit would look better. The deal breaker is the length—too short for a moderately tall guy. Even the large might be too short, though I'll give it a try. Length shouldn't be a problem if you're under 6'.

I might get two shawl collars next time around and skip the button-up.
