Uniqlo sizing

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
I'm about buying some Uniqlo stuff, but unfortunately I'm not able to try anything, being their shop some 1k miles away. Hence, my questions:

- Are the slim fit denims true to size?
- Is an M Uniqlo tee the same size of an M American Apparel?

i know their pants fit true to size (vintage chinos are AWESOME!!!), but i am also curious about their shirts. i know i fit a medium in h&m slim-fit and j. crew, so should i go with the medium or size up?
post #3 of 19
Im a medium in most places, but at uniqlo i wear a small (at least for the graphic tees, medium on most everything else). Although I could probably wear a medium too. Unfortunately I cant help you because I dont have anything from jcrew or h&m to compare it to. But, at least in the two graphic tees I bought, the differences between small and medium werent that large. In their sweaters, I wear a medium. No idea about button-downs though, sorry.

i can fit in XS uniqlo sweaters as well as smalls, some of my small items from earlier seasons are much tinier than newer seasons,

My BoO size = M, my uniqlo size = S

thanks, you pretty much answered my question. it's funny because my j. crew, h&m, br and gap, i'm a medium and in BoO I'm in between a large and extra large. anyways, i guess i shall be trying the medium then...

Couldn't someone make comparisons with AA? I'm unfamiliar with BoO or J.Crew.

I can speak for the NYC one ... you might want size down a lot. compared to american apparel their shirts fit like brown bags. don't know about their pants

The American one.

For undershirts and t-shirts I find that out of the package sizing down works well, but once washed in a normal washing machine and dried -- there is serious shrinkage.

So -- Small in J.Crew, XS in Uniqlo out of the package, but size small after washing, re: The $4.90 color v-neck undershirts.

Uniqlo UK. I still haven't understood what size to choose for my tees. I repeat, I wear M AA tees, and they fit me good, tight enough. Should I size down?

Someone with experience with Uniqlo UK can help you. I went true to size for a JAPANESE Uniqlo Oxford, and it was the best fitting button up shirt I ever wore in my life.

for me the pants are always too tight. I usually wear a size 28 or 29 in jeans and I'd had problem with size 30 skinny jeans from uniqlo (being that I can't sit in them comfortably). Also they are notorious for not stretching too much.

As for the tops I would say an Uniqlo small is somewhere between an American Apparel small and medium when comparing the basic tees. I hope this helps.

Ok so I think I'll go for an M, since I'm a big AA's M. Thanks to all who have replied, useful however!
