    I was gonna say, I went to the biggest Uniqlo in China earlier today and they had no slim selvage +J denim. They had the skinny straight in a variety of colors nobody would ever want (mao suit blue, wheat, and pitch black, wtf?) and a regular fit but none of them were selvage. Uniqlo, I am dissapoint. :[

    There is no such thing as a +J selvedge denim. There are three types of selvedge from Uniqlo far as I know.

    1. The original MIJ raw.
    2. The UJ raw Made in China (with selvedge coin pcket).
    3. The *new* UJ MIJ raw.

    I own the original MIJ raw and the last time I have been to Uniqlo the new UJ MIJ's are quite similar is not exactly the same. The slim Uniqlo 30x34 fit similar to APC NS size 29 after stretching a little.

    I don't know actual numbers, but I tried some Japan Slims on (proxy for a friend), I'm a true 30, and 30 fit pretty well, just a little bit tight off the shelf. I'd say the rise on the 30 was around 10", pretty much a mid-low rise.

    I'd honestly recommend TTS, or 1 down at most (based on aforementioned proxy).



    The Japan/selvage denim models are button fly.


    I agree, size down 1 if possible. I have the a black raw from 2007 that I got in London, in sz 30 and it got stretched out real quickly. Last year I got another the All Made in Japan ones in sz 29 and they fit much better.

    Just got these today! For ~ $30 each, they're going to be great beaters.

    I wasn't sure of the actual current designation or model number, since Uniqlo is pretty spare about that. I know their premium stuff is +J, and these were located upstairs in the +J area. UJ then? Guess so, but definitely a rework of the previous incarnation with selvage line on coin pocket. Nice jeans and feel like they'll stretch.

    Do.

    As far as I know, they're for sale in-store only. No website, and didn't even appear in the Uniqlo 'denim' brochure I was given in the store with my purchase either. Not sure what the marketing intent is, except to probably keep it 'exclusive' seeming...

    How is the sizing of the Uniqlo slim fit goes, compared to the Levi's 511s? Same/slightly smaller/slightly larger? The fit is also similar?

    How the quality of the jeans sold in the US and UK compare? The UK site says Japanese denim, the US site says denim from Greece, Australia and the US (the non selvedge, cheaper jeans).

    What is the difference?

    MEN Slim Fit Straight Jeans H

    MEN Slim Fit Straight Jeans(Os) (New)

    There used to be an interview with head of Uniqlo's Jeans department. I can't find. Do you happen to have it? Thanks in advance.

    Yes, that was it. Thanks for digging it up.

    Anyways, I wonder if anything good can be said about the cheap Uniqlo jeans? (USD/GBP 20, depending on market) Are they good value for the money? Unfortunately, I do not live in one of the services countries. Can be proxied, though.
