    I'm not generally a big fan of graphic T's but the new Haibara UT prints are nice.

    how do you guys wear your heat-tech shirts?

    do you wear it as an undershirt? i.e under a flannel or cotton shirt

    or do you wear it as a shirt, perhaps putting a cardigan or jacket over it?

    For the shirts, I only really wear them for sport or apres-sport in teh case of my new Yoda long sleeve.

    I've done it occasionally under sweater or sweatshirt depending … but as an undershirt yes. I have a couple white ones hat I've found are great as an insulating layer underneath a dress shirt in the winter (v-neck so no vis of course).



    You're right some of those are cool. I have a Basquiat one from a previous release.

    Undershirt only since I only have heat-tech v-necks and they are deep.

    I was thinking of buying one of the Water Defender down jackets for hiking, but they don't seem to carry them anymore. Patagonia doesn't seem to carry their Encapsil down jacket anymore either. Water resistant down seemed like such a great idea, particularly since the process reportedly made the down fibers loftier and more durable too.

    Anyone know anything about the Uniqlo jackets in particular or that down treatment in general?

    Edit: Looks like LL Bean still carries their water resistant "DownTec" stuff.

    I got it and I have yet to test out the water repellency of it. From the initial touch of the fabric, it doesn't seems like it would be so great at repelling water, but this is just based on the touch of the fabric. I've been meaning to test it in the shower.

    Is there any way to stretch out the slim fit stretch jeans (these)? I love the look but feel they're too tight around the legs.

    If they're too tight just buy a size up

    I have this. It is one of the best items I have bought at Uniqlo. A nice clean look. The hood is ample; I hate tiny hoods. It isn't amazing but it is as good as anything selling for 2x as much. The inside has a rubbery feel due to the waterproofing, which doesn't bug me but you may not care for it. It is a good deal at full price. I haven't worn it in the driving rain, so I don't know how it would handle that.

    This is the solution for all the pants - you can dial in the fit by going up or down a size or two, or switching the cut. The jump between sizes is not that significant.

    Good Chinese New Year deals. Stocked up on heattech, undies, and socks

    I tried some of the collarless shirts (I guess Uniqlo calls them stand collars) that just came out.
    I like them a lot. just so many options on material though.. linen, twill, extrafine cotton, denim..etc
    hard to choose.

    I hope they make a linen half sleeve one for summer, but for the rest.. which one is easier to take care of? doesn't wrinkle as easily?

    Are the supima undershirts wearable as a normal T or are they too thin?

    they are good as normal tees.
    the ones that are under tees are the airism and heattech, and the cotton ones in packs.

    although in Japan, I see quite a few guys wearing airism as the only top during summer
