Do those UU twill chinos look a touch longer than usual? They just don't look as cropped in the pictures above. Even seeing just a little bit of a break on the shoe in the mannequin photo.
When I took the display U twill chinos, I put them on my side to check their length and I think they're the same. Maybe they put in a larger size on the mannequin and it went a bit below the ideal rise. :)

These Uniqlo dry tees might be my new thing. Sizing up fits great across chest and shoulders, perfect snugness around the bicep. And the tee is not short. Will see how these wash and dry.

Plain color tees fit good size up. The marled color like this pink one fit a bit snugger.

@gettoasty I use to wear them. I'd just machine wash and dry, they would pill a bit depending on the color. I wore mostly the black ones as they are like $4 are actually decent Ts.

Thanks for the FW UUpreview. Nothing immediately jumps out.
And experience have indicated not to go with their wool stuff.

Besides where i'm at, FW don't make sense.

I hop between Singapore / Hong Kong / Taiwan

True on the wool stuff actually, although I do have some good experience with some select items (like some of the wool/nylon blends and some premium lambswool items). But most of the time, if the synthetic percentage is high (hello, acrylic and polyester), it will sadly pill ugly, even if the design is nice. Pilling happens even in the highest end of designer brands, but it's just a matter of which pills "prettiest" to be considered the better choice.

And also agree on where we're at, we live in the tropics :))
I only get to take advantage of such on travels to colder places.

Does anyone know if Uniqlo releases dress pants (Not the EZY or Kando pants) in the Fall?

One thing that bugs me about Uniqlo is that you see these cool minimalist footwears in lookbooks and mannequins and they don't sell them! Wish they'd step up their footwear production.

True, same thoughts as well. Some looks in the past seasons use the older U shoes models, or, like from the recent FW18 and SS18 lookbooks have slipons/loafers/shoes that are actually from Lemaire's own.

Uniqlo uses some brandless shoes for their mannequins.
Have you tried Muji? It's super minimal .

I visit Muji for their skincare, but always hesitant about their apparel and footwear. Is the quality good? Their prices seem to be slightly higher than Uniqlo.

The quality's good in my experience, I have a lot of Muji apparel and footwear that I've been using for years.

It's definitely better quality than Uniqlo for some items. I like the linen & silk knits, the socks, and the sleepwear. There are good kitchen items as well.
