Help with Japanese translation

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I'm looking to order a couple things from 2000db, including several uniqlo pieces: 1 and 2 However, google translator doesn't seem to work on the size chart. I need about a 38 chest and 28 length, am I looking for a sz M? I heard uniqlo runs big, but also that Asian sizing runs small. Also, if that red message appears over the picture, does that mean it's sold out? thanks.

jacket in the first link is all sold out(the red box means they are sold out in every size&color). the shirt in the second link measures chest 36" length 29.5" for size M, chest 37" length 30" 3/4 for L.

Dear Parachutes:

I am curious about your fees.

If the second item, a uniqlo shirt, is about 2000 yen or $17 USD, what additional fees are involved in paying you and getting you to ship the item to the US?

my fees are 15% of the total i pay to buy the item (item cost and shipping to me), plus the shipping cost to get the stuff to you. so basically the equation would be like this:

(item cost + shipping to me) X 1.15 + oversea shipping cost

no additional "paypal" fees, its already included in the 15% mark up.

So what is the shipping cost for such an item?

i could probably find these at a store close by. shipping to the US would be about $14, making the total to $34 approx.

OK, good to know.

All y'all proxies has led me to peruse japanese auctions, using machine translation to fumble my way around. Trying to think in cm instead of inches, as well.

Y'all are small.

I'm a S-M or US 38/40 or EU 48/50 but seem to be an L over by you. Generally correct?

38-40 would be m/l in north american sizing. I'm a 184 cm and 62kg (6' 135lbs) and I usually am 46 chest which is s/m over here. It's ususally a better option to base yourself on measurements for each garments because sizing varies so much from brand to brand.

thanks for the answers guys. One other question, what does "JUST FIT" mean on this page:

http://store.uniqlo.com/L3/u39.asp

and are the sizes different at all?

"just fit" typically means the garments is neither loose or tight. its one of the peculiar enlish japanese uses daily.

in UNIQLO's term, it means a slim fit.
