    Chesterfield coat sucks. I'm saying this as a guy that originally only really wanted that item.

    Wool military jacket on the other hand is pretty awesome though plain.


    Can you elaborate more about your comment on the Chesterfield coat? I'm thinking of getting one.

    The wool/cashmere is really thin, and the lapels are way too small. My custom cashmere from China that cost me less than $50 is better quality, and that says a lot. Plus peak lapels on an overcoat like that isn't terribly great in my opinion, but that part goes unnoticed by most. If you have no other options for a coat in that style then I guess it'd be ok, but honestly I was very unimpressed with it.

    Does anyone have any of the +J suits and can comment on the fit/quality and can possibly provide a fit pic?

    I have the wool flannel suit. Thick and warm for the cold days. The blazer have a narrow shoulder, high arm holes, and fits slim. Jacket is cut a little shorter, my size XS length measured from the back is about 26 inches. Pants is low rise, fits very slim on the thigh and legs and a small taper at the ankle. I feel that the qualitiy is nice for the price. Looks more expensive than the price tag.

    No fit pics, no camera right now.

    If it's anything like my regular suits from this season of Uniqlo then for the price you honestly can't beat it, and they'll still look fine while being comfortable.

    My last suit fit pic was a regular Uniqlo suit from this season, but I"m not sure how much the overall fit is different from +J.

    Thanks guys. I'm thinking of snagging one off the B/S but I'm not sure if $260 for the wool suit is reasonable. Probably around $60 more than the cost of the suit including taxes and shipping. If I'm normally an XS in uniqlo shirts, would I fit an XS in the +J suits or are they slightly slimmer? I was at uniqlo the other day and was looking for suits other than the +J ones that are sold out and could not find any. Are those only sold in Asia?

    Nope, different design. The flannel one is peak lapel, not notch.

    stopped by the store today, there was quite a bit of the +j for women's left, especially coats. Also, they told my girlfriend that they're getting a new shipment of +j from japan that will be a bit slimmer and smaller sizes, but i don't know if that shipment will include mens. just letting you know [​IMG]
