    Does anyone know of the hemming process for jeans at UNIQLO? I have a pair of jeans I bought from there a while back I might like to shorten.

    In Japan it's included if you bought at retail, not sure about elsewhere.

    Hi everyone. Can anyone tell me how the +j peacoat fits?

    I can't figure out whether I'm a S or XS, and a bit worried by the claims that their sizing is a bit messed up. I'm about 5'7, 60kg/132lb. I wear wear 34"-36" in a suit.

    honestly, don't proxy through this guy. Did not have a good experience with him. pm me for details. I would recommend Suddenlee over anything else.

    Anyone able to proxy me these two:

    MEN Premium Wool Flat Front Trousers size 31x34 06GRAY

    MEN (+J)Wool Flannel Straight Trousers 31x34 08GRAY

    or anyone use Suddenlee with success? Seems like they are only charging the item price + their service fee, but what about international shipping etc?

    It's more than I would pay, considering it's not even +J

    the +J cropped pea coat from last fall was on ebay a few weeks ago. Feel so bad I couldn't bid since I really want that one, went for 150 too....

    Button Stance: I'm seeing a lot of talk about this. Jil and Jil designed by Raf has always had a mid to high button stance. Whether you think this is good or bad you should determine by taste. The mid/high stance* is usually an older aesthetic - APC suiting still uses it and if you pay attention, APC besides denim is basically 70's wear made slimmer. It's not, by default, a bad look. If you look around a lot of modern suiting has a deep as your waist stance which is just as bad. As an FYI, the three button suit is considered "older" and out of fashion compared to the two button these days, and the four to five button should never be considered.

    *If you want to get all MC about it, stance should be called gorge (the depth of the V cause by the button stance).
