    Does anyone have experience with the long-sleeve linen shirts being sold by Uniqlo right now? I am thinking of ordering a few, but I don't live in NY so I wanted to get some feedback before pulling the trigger.

    I'm referring to these: http://www.uniqlo.com/us/explorer.ht...067933-000-63/

    I was gonna buy some, but they felt pretty scratchy. Maybe I'm just not used to linen shirts.

    I bought three some weeks ago - the sky blue, navy blue and orange.

    Naturally enough, they're not Borrelli.
    However, given that they are about $30 each, from memory, the shirts are great for the price.
    Quite slim-fitting, nice feel to the cloth, and nice colours.

    Note that the collars do not have stays, removable or otherwise. Given that I'm never going to wear a tie with these shirts, I don't think that matters.

    Great casual shirts I think. Not as thick linen as my old non-premium linen Uniqlo shirts, but still nice enough, particularly for the price. I've got quite a lot of them, I pretty much always wear linen shirts casually.

    Got one from their NY store via email order. It's comfy and slim fitting. Can't complain.

    sleeves are relatively short, i believe something like 31.5 for a size small. This was the major deterrant for me. If they fit you i'd go for it.

    Anyone wear them untucked? I'm searching for a good shirt to wear casually with linen shorts (think beach wear/very very casual where pants are a no-no)

    Wish they didn't have a pocket [​IMG]

    I bought two in M. I think they're a bit long to wear untucked, though I would never tuck them in. Would it be crazy to have a tailor shorten them? I was going to try washing them, maybe even throw in the dryer for 10-20 minutes, to see if the naturally wrinkling shortens them at all. They are slim though I wish they were slimmer in the waist and hips. Overall nice shirts though.
