    Bruh it's a sweatshirt, probably the best thing they make. I'm guessing they're always looking to cut costs as is the case with cheap ass shit like uniqlo so not much you can do about it. It's all china garbage anyway. When they make something good, which is usually pretty rare, you strike while it's hot. Pretty much over their stuff which was decent ten years ago but I'll gladly pay more for far better quality even for basics.

    I'm still pissed they changed their OCBD style like six years ago.

    Everlane probably styleforum's most hated brand, but I've switched over to them for good basics. Their quality fit and finish is up there with Nordstrom brands. And I find their fabrics are pretty nice; more substantial feeling than budget brands and their lighter stuff is the right kind of 'light'. They also offer a few different fits. It's a brand that's for women to buy their fashion clueless boyfriends / husband since they are already shopping there. But damn what else is out there for cheap basics?

    What sucks about Uniqlo U is that I feel like it doesn't work with other items. I+J worked with a lot of my other brands while Uniqlo (when it was higher quality) fit in well with my contemporary closet. I like the colors of Uniqlo U and some of the looks, but that look is like a commitment.. and like can anyone actually say they want to look like this standing in line for Chipotle?

    I think it's going to automatically look better on someone who isn't 6'2"

    The denim definitely isn't that cropped on the pair my friend has.

    I just got my order of the UU nylon shorts, UU coach jacket, UU jeans, and super-non iron BD shirt.

    The UU stuff was disappointing. The nylon shorts had a very unflattering fit and the nylon was uncomfortable, stuff and crinkly. The coach jacket looked cheap and had too puffy sleeves for the thin fabric, the jeans were too cropped on me at 6'3, although otherwise decent. The hem stood out to the sides in a weird way though. I think they could look decent on someone shorter and with a mild press down the front to fix the poofing hem.

    On the other hand, the super-non iron shirt was suprisingly nice. Good enough every-day shirt for work. I got the regular fit one size down and fit is quite spot on.

    I bought one as well. I've been happy with the green cord Ines suit, so it was nice to get something similarly inexpensive for summer.

    If you bench or anything with them you slip off the seat way too easily.

    @Coldsnap the jeans are awful. Truly awful. The colour/wash is good, but the actual cut is just straight up old navy special.
    If you do like that kind of cut though I would suggest sizing down 1.

    The Milano rib tee on the other hand is dope.

    And none of this UU stuff is remotely Lemaire-ish. The only thing that comes close to having a Lemaire vibe is the colours. To be clear I wasn’t expecting “cheap Lemaire”. I just see a lot of people referencing UU as such and it’s actually starting to piss me off.

    Anyone getting a "Wrong Billing Address" error when trying to place an order online? Freaking weird.

    Not me, but I ship to a different address than my billing so that could have something to do with it.

    Also, is it just me or do the current sweat pants have a drier hand than previous pairs? The normal $29.90 ones. The cotton feels drier, duh, and slightly coarser than my last pair. I have a an old grey pair and the new ones are black, so I can't really tell if it's just a color thing or not.
