    I tried that coat on multiple times because they were sold out of the black +J peacoat in NYC. The thinness of the wool was one of the main reasons I decided against it. The athletic fix compared of the +J definitely flattered me more, but with the markdowns bringing down the prices down to equal I had to go with the greater quality coat.

    Just wondering if any of you have experience with Asian vs US/UK sizing..

    I bought a couple XS dress shirts from the NYC SoHo store in March 2010, which fit fairly well (neck/sleeve length/shirt length/shoulders/a bit too wide around the stomach though). My girlfriend bought me a "slim" dress shirt at the Hong Kong store in a Small in December 2010 and it was way too tight, a tad too short, shoulders too small, cuffs too tight, and neck was too small.

    Do you think the sizing difference is more like 2 sizes rather than 1 since I think an Asian medium probably would have fit well? I guess it might depend on different pieces of clothing too... I have Small no-collar shirts/tshirts from the SoHo store that fit well.

    the difference was that one was slim wile the other was regular cut, IMO.

    if you tried on the same shirt in XS then in S in HK, it would be similar. Slim fit does make a difference for some stores

    Small. I wear button down shirts underneath sweaters, I need extra room for layering.

    i c i c.

    i picked up 3 small lambswool vneck/crew in small. weird that we are same size, or i am just sizing wrong.

    my experience (from jcrew size medium) was that medium wool sweaters fit too big. crossing fingers for some stretch

    i planned on wearing without shirts underneath for the most part though. :satisfied:

    I just received my +J black suit today through Suddenlee. The fit is spot-on out of the box; only the usual pant hem is needed. Got it on the first day of the +J sale; the total with proxy fee, tax, and shipping was still only around $210+.

    Suddenlee was convenient, responsive, and slightly less than the usual 10% that other proxies charge. Items shipped the next day for $4.50 cross-country, and they take returns. Completely no-fuss transaction; I will definitely use them again when I need a NYC proxy. Thanks to whoever recommended them.

    It's just weird that parts like the neck, cuffs, and shoulders are all smaller for "slim" fit. It's more like slim and small fit... lol

    My girlfriend probably thought I would fit into the slim fit since I'm a pretty slim guy. Maybe Asians in Asia are super skinny.

    YES! Yes you can.

    Just put in an order and ask for the promo/they will automatically price adjust.

    why wouldn't they??

    Yes I support Suddenlee 110% for domestic proxies.

    If you need international (from US to outside), I can probably refer you to someone.

    I didn't know that the +J stuff was on sale. I just got lucky. Suddenlee didn't even have to tell me that there were on sale, but they did and charged me the lower price (which also meant less fees that they could collect). Also, I was able to communicate via e-mail with someone in the main office, who was in direct contact with someone at the store, so I was able to get updates almost real-time, which I'm pretty sure most proxies won't do. They also shipped out the next business day for cheaper than any proxy I've seen, the packaging was good, and they even threw in a Uniqlo catalog haha.

    Yeah pretty much, an item I wanted was sold out so they substituted for me via real-time e-mail.

    Just wondering do they charge your credit card right away, or only once they confirm the item is available? Since I'm in Canada and get packages shipped to the states, my credit card is in cdn $ obviously, and if they charge me and refund me if item is not available i lose out on exchange rates from visa.

    Once confirmed, they will charge.

    Not anytime before.

    They put a hold on your credit card for the estimated amount, and then follow through with a charge for the actual amount.

    Like I said before, their service is ridiculous. Hope they're around for a while. I picked up some flannels in an order a while ago, one of the ones I wanted was sold out, so they linked me to others on the site that were still available, as well as taking pictures of other flannels that weren't on the site so I could choose. They also purchased all my items separately (about 10 things), so there was no sales tax, and they saved me a nice amount of money on that as well.

    fyi, all new york stores are out of size 29 waist pants, and XS (except for one or two ugly styles) suit jackets.
