    I'll be in NY about 1-2 days after the collection is released. About how fast do these things usually sell out in store?

    For the people in here wondering about the grana tees, I just picked up a few. The material is thin and i prefer the pima cotton uniqlo one, although I picked up the uniqlo last year and someone said they're thinner now.

    The white is somewhat sheer to the point I will be returning it.

    With that said the fit on the scoop neck is pretty good. I just hope it doesn't shrink in the wash in length. I'm 6'1" and got a large for reference.

    With all the good reviews people had in here my expectations were probably too high. Keep in mind these are $15 tees. It is good for its price range.

    I agree. The Grana tees have definitely been overhyped in here. They're alright, but nothing special. If you're looking to pick up a cheap, scoop-neck t-shirt, Urban Outfitters offers a better option.

    I tried their twill shirts today. some things to take note of

    - Sleeve ends a little shorter than usual, becareful
    - Sleeves are also tighter. Even after unbuttoning both buttons, it was hard to roll up. I have very average sized arms.

    I have a question for the MEN OXFORD SLIM FIT LONG SLEEVE SHIRT, I've been reading the reviews for the casual shirt and they are saying its slim but wide at the bottom... can anyone clarify this? I don't want to order and then resend it back if the bottom is too wide. My size is small if that matters.



    http://www.uniqlo.com/us/product/me...320.html#16~/men/casual-shirts/oxford/solid/~

    If anyone else have any other suggestions for cheap solid oxford casual shirt (like the ^above) that are silm fit and not wide, let me know please. Thanks

    I am 5' 9", 190, larger than average arms/shoulders and a ~32" waist. I have these in an L. The sleeve diameter and shoulder width is perfect, but the sleeves are a little short. The body is definitely wide. I am going to have it either darted or taken in. I think it's worth buying and altering. I don't think you will be able to find a shirt that fits well for that total cost.

    You're close to Brooks Brothers territory after alterations.

    I think the Mens wool cashmere coat from the lemaire collaboration looks really nice, perfect for my minimalist feel.

    Has anyone worn the corduroy shirts? What is the fit like on them?

    They've dropped the original heat tech fabric on the mock neck for the tech fleece :(

    I assume you are rather tall. The grana large is long on me, which is what I wanted.


    I like the grana t's......sounds like they aren't for everyone, which could be said about anything I suppose. I will be buying more grana ts and probably no more uniqlo ts.

    I have had rotten luck with UO tshirts. All the ones I have seen have been so poor. Maybe they are doing a better job these days.

    @DLester Have you gotten any grana tees from the new batch? They shortened the tees.

    Yea the larges are a little more than 2 inches shorter. I contacted customer service about this as their measurements show 30" for a large. They said they updated the fit and need to update the website. They're a tad short for me but i still kept a couple. Hope they dont shrink in a cold wash and line dry.
