    T-000s are probably too skinny for your thunder thighs. They're skinny jeans, not slim NS type stuff. Tiny ass hem opening. That's the only cut for khaki jeans. They have Vintage Chinos but those are like jcrew slim cut, not anything to write home about.


    With the exception of some collab stuff and specific items (like t-000 skinny jeans), uniqlo clothes aren't really all that slim. They're like normal fit, not really different from a jcrew type cut. A lot of stuff is kinda boxy. It's decent looking basics though.

    I called, and they're all out of khaki 000's in nyc. I proxied a pair of 31's from japan, so if they don't work out, I'll sell them. Lemme know if you're interested.

    Anyway, I echo the comments on most stuff being kinda boxy. The sweaters are an awesome value, considering the relative quality of the wool.

    Have you been to the store? BC it seems that I am being mislead by someone, but I will not point any fingers yet. The Uniqlo mailorder peeps told me that they make the raw selvage in Skinny, Slim, and Regular fit, and that they don't have a number such as T-000, but are rather just referred to as the Japanese "slim/skinny/regular" selvage.

    the Uniqlo Selvedge and the more recent 'Japanese Denim' jeans don't have numbers, just skinny/slim/regular

    the other (cheaper) jeans have codes, from memory there's - T = tapered, S = Straight, B = bootcut, and 000 = skinny, 001 = slim, 002 = regular/loose

    The Selvedge Skinny Straight's are S-000.

    they are decent, good for beaters but you will eventually want to replace them once you try more expensive brands

    Nope, I'm still wearing my two; I've been waiting for a deal on BOO blue and white oxford.

    Uniqlo Oxfords won't fall apart on you, I can attest to that. I alternated the two that I had during my whole employment at the gap (6months?), so pretty much each got worn 3-4 times a week.
