    Can anyone confirm that they carry the elusive Vintage Fit Chino?

    They do. I picked up a pair last week of what appeared to be the last size 30. Not sure when they're planning to restock. They had plenty of bigger sizes. Smaller sizes were hit or miss.

    Thanks! I might give them a call now, if I say Vintage fit chino will they know what I'm talking about? I'm going to guess on my size but I'm thinking a 29 or 30; I wear a 28 in APC NS.

    Just got off the phone with a helpful girl. They had a 30 in Beige and a 31 in Khaki, she said the Beige was like Khaki but lighter. I got both, not sure how the 31 might fit but I can always throw it on the market. I wonder how light the Beige is.

    I've had these for over a year and they look good as new.

    *grumble* may have to go back and pick up two more pair now that I can size down.

    Hey guys, I'm xposting this with the ask a question thread...hope nobody minds:

    Sorry to have a lot of questions, but I'm thinking of doing a pretty big phone order this week:
    • How skinny are the skinny-fit khakis? A description relative to APC cuts would be especially helpful. Not as skinny as the NC, right?
    • If I wear ~29 in APC's, what sizes should I get in skinny fit khakis and slim fit seersucker trousers?
    • How slim are the sweaters/cardigans? If I'm about a 36" chest are like my clothes fitted, should I go for an S or XS?
    • If I'm looking for an item that's available in the UK but sold out from the NYC store, is there any way to get it direct from Uniqlo, or must I proxy?

    Thanks!

    The T-000 skinny cut is definitely a skinny jean. Not a77 joey tight or something but they're skinny. I hear they run true to size and if you're between sizes a friend of mine went down. They stretch because they're 2% elastane or whatever.

    I have no idea about the seersucker pants.

    Uniqlo's normal clothes aren't really that slim. You'd be an XS is all their tops no doubt. I have a tshirt that's a size small and it fits alright, if not a bit boxy.

    The only Uniqlo store in the US i know of the is NYC one and i don't think the UK one does US orders yet. If it's sold at at NYC you're out of luck but they restock.


    I think people misunderstand uniqlo at times. They're not a skinny brand or something. Most their clothes fit like gap. They do have some items like the relatively new T-000 jeans that are skinny, the designer invitational stuff that still isn't as slim as some people think depnding on the piece. Most their tops are kinda boxy although some are semi-slim. They do make solid basics though if you're patient or have something specific you want to pick up.



    That said, lemme know before you order because they have a 2 for $50 deal going on with the T-000s and i might be interested in paypalling you some if you were only going to get one T-000 jean. I am interested in these dark purplelish-blue ones. I kinda like some of the OC collab stuff but it's too much hassle to get the collab stuff since most sells out and/or gets resold

    The vintage chinos aren't really that slim. Like jcrew classic fit really. I think he's referring to the T-000 khaki colored skinny jean which definitely are skinny.

    In the post above you, I think SoCal's talking about me, I think I called him "fresh." Haha. But the skinny-fit khakis aren't that skinny. And last time I was there, about 2 weeks ago, they didn't have any waist sizes smaller than 30 (which may have been my problem), so I'd go for that esp. considering you want a skinny fit. I wear a 28 in APC and they were slightly large on the waist. I'd get a S in the cardigans though. I wear an XS but I think you're tall? Also I think this is the second time I've given you advice today, geez lol.
