    Can someone tell me what 'dry' denotes in this season of uniqlo? Quite a few things seem to have that label.

    So are all these printed shirts as loose fitting as seems to be indicated based on the measurements? TTS or 1 down?

    I was actually there on Saturday.

    Great store, lots of items in stock.. There is also a lot of promotions going on.



    My Question:

    Has anyone ever called an Uniqlo store and placed an order? Do they provide free shipping?

    They fit me great. But I prefer their washed polo. Last year I bought a few and returned them (decided to rock only tees) but this year I'm itching to wear a few of their washed polos.



    Cool thanks! I will report back hopefully with some findings/purchases. :D

    at least in their dry packaged tshirts, it means the fabric is supposed to wick sweat away from your body to keep you 'dry.' Doesn't really work in practice though.

    I can only assume they mean the same for other things like jackets.

    Oh, snap. I thought the 'dry jacket', with its poly-blend, was meant to be a travel jacket, something that repels rain. Good to know.

    Probably been asked a million times but does anyone have experience with the cropped pants from Uniqlo.

    1. How is the sizing? size up, down, tts. I wear a 29 in Uniqlo slim-straight jeans (sized down one) and was thinking of going with a 30 on the cropped pants.

    2. What would you suggest in terms of color. I'm planning on wearing them this summer with white sneakers and a plain l/s tshirt (usually either navy or lavender)

    I really like this look, though I'm not big on the khaki color:

    3. Also, which of the following two would you suggest.

    Just came in the mail.
    Medium Navy Linen Cotton Jacket
    Size 30 Slim Fit Jeans

    Other then the Sleeves, how does the fit look? I was quite surprised on how comfortable the jacket felt when I put it on.

    So I just got some slim oxfords in the mail, and like them soooo much better then the express button ups I used to wear.

    I ordered Slim Small, can you guys tell me what you think as fit goes, and if these tend to shrink or not.
    body fits great in my opinion , it is slim but not constricting, the chest how ever is a little bit tight but not constricting.
    shoulders look spot on, button all the way up the neck is spot on, what do you guys think?
    Just live with the slightly snug chest? also i would assume these shrink in the drier, but I generally just cold water wash/ hang dry. or low heat dry.

    You might want to consider going to a medium, buttons are pulling and just looks a bit tight

    The buttons are not bad at all in his pic i think he would be better in non slim fit extra small. He needs the extra hip room.

    thanks for the replies here is a small non slim,
    problem i have with this is the extra fabric to my eyes, and the shoulders hang a little bit past imo.
    I am trying to find the best OTR fit I can,

    Are there any reputable Uniqlo proxies? I'd be quite interested to pick up some OCBD's but I live in Australia.

    Fit (aside from the sleeves, obviously) looks fine for a casual jacket. Actually, seeing that worn makes me want one. Could you perhaps confirm or deny that the measurements on their site are accurate? (Also, is the jacket darted/slimmed through the waist at all? It doesn't look like it in the pic you posted or their site, but every other jacket I've got from Uniqlo is darted...)
