    The henleys are cut longer than crews, awesome for layering

    But crews are sweet too, my favourite fit pic ever:

    Have you ever tried that blazer on? I'm torn about the one on B/S.

    The material and weight has me baffled...

    Thanks for the corrections (shirt/sweater), forgot to mention they were different.

    I've touched/felt it, but never tried it on. The measurements are really messed up, sleeves are hyper long. I forgot if they're surgeon cuffed or not though,if the buttons don't work, I don't mind getting them tailored.

    What about the material/weight? It's cotton jersey or something, feels great.

    Did you seriously just call a crew-neck sweatshirt a "knockoff"?

    I'm not saying that W+H pioneered the crew-neck sweatshirt, but Uniqlo has pretty blatantly aped W+H designs before, and the little criss-cross thing under the collar makes the two pieces look pretty much identical.

    Something about the size and height of the patch pockets seems off to me on that. I realize that the blazer is supposed to be cropped, but they look like they end too high up on the torso.

    The patch pockets are fine imo, but the chest one is a bit high.

    Looks better in that photo than in the stock pic, IMO.

    this has existed forever though, certainly before w+h

    I wholeheartedly agree. I kind of doubt Uniqlo spontaneously decided to use a design identical to W+H in a vacuum, though. Did you see the terry loop hoodie Uniqlo had last F/W? Still vaguely peeved I missed out on getting one of those.

    Which iteration are you looking for, blistered lamb? Or is it a sizing issue?

    Oiled calf.
    Regular calf would have been fine and probably would have copped already if it were a size s.

    should I get some AA t's and a corter belt or some cheap suede wingtips? I feel I'll get more use out of the Ts and belt (belt will be worn almost every day).
