    also what is up with the relaxed linen pants, I like the idea of those, they have a funky print on them as well.

    Can anyone comment on whether the listed measurements on the Uniqlo site are accurate for these slim fit oxfords. Was specifically wondering about the XS.

    Thanks

    I'm stopping at 185lbs :p MTM shirts are only 90$ at ratio, so $37 takes a large chunk out of it.

    Anybody with the earthy-tone slim fit oxfords mind taking a pic of the BoO/Gitman-esque fabric? I'm curious, might order 1 or 2 of em...Slim Fit in M sounds as close to perfect as I'll get without having alterations done

    Are the sleeves any longer on these new oxfords (slim fit and regular fit) compared to the older oxford with the box pleat? 21.5" on the slim medium sounds perfect!

    Well it looks like I fucked up on sizing my "slim" grosgrain oxfords because I tried on all 3 of my XLs and they're too big. Listen to Dbear's advice and stay TTS.

    I went to tts (xs) and mine worked out pretty well. They aren't drastically different from the regular fit- chest and length seem pretty much the same but they're a bit slimmer in the body and sleeves and no box pleat.

    Would the measurements on the Uniqlo website for XS accurate then?

    Just got in my order, the linen cardigan is perfect. Got it in navy, really tempted by the beige now too. And maybe another navy just in case.

    It's pretty slouchy, you can easily size down for a slim fit if you wanted to. I'm glad I didn't though, it's awesome as is.

    Never mind all this slim-fit nonsense. Uniqlo UK finally got the regular oxfords back in stock in L :)

    I picked up 2 white grosgrain oxfords from the Regent Street shop yesterday and they're really nice. I'm 6'2" and 175lbs an took a medium. The fabric is really soft, I think a big step up from last season.

    No slim fits in the UK, but I'd be keen to try them on.

    Yea I think slim fit is DOA

    I bought about 5-6 regulars in different colors. I am 5' 10", 190lbs, semi-athletic. I had to get L to fit my shoulders- I have a bunch of M's that I had tailored that no longer fit. Anyways looking to set up an appt with my tailor one of these days. They are nice but I think the older ones I have are softer. Might take a few washes to loosen them up.

    Could someone be kind enough to recommend me sizes in a couple things?

    I am 5'10 and 145-150lbs with ~40in chest and 30 waist. Athletic/skinny

    Looking at slim fit chambray 3/4 sleeve, plain sweatshirt, and hoodie (also would like to know if the pullover hoodie would be good for layering or if it is too thick)

    Do the new Slim Fit OCBDs fit any different than last season's? The listed measurements are exactly the same.

    Also, can someone who bought one of the new slim ocbd colors (navy, olive, khaki) post fit pics?

    Has Uniqlo stopped selling merino wool v-necks or are they just a part of the FW-collection?

    I remember buying a merino v-neck in London august last year. They were pretty good value for money.
