• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

Can’t remember if someone already posted about it, but how’s the mainline jersey work jacket? TTS or size up?

Anyone get to see the U supima cotton polos? If so, are they nice?
The slim button placket and relaxed fit is nice, uses real seashell buttons, similar to SS19 polos. The blue color is interesting up close with the mixed thread (looks gray from afar).

Tried that too, TTS is ok in my experience since it’s got a slight boxy fit.

Came home this evening to my order waiting for me. Not much that other people havent already chimed in on, but ...

U t-shirts -- fit is pretty much same as past seasons, colors are good. I got the 30 Natural which is like a bone or candle-wax color and i think works better as a base for this season's palette than stark white; 68 Blue is really good, up close its got blue and red threads in it, really interesting mix; and 71 Purple which reminds me of a blueberry smoothie (this one might be my favorite color).

The Military Jersey Shirt -- like others have said, the material is pretty cool, very soft. I got the 37 Brown color. Definitely think the way to wear this one is not as an overshirt but by itself, sleeves rolled, collar open, as sleazy as possible.

Regular Collar Long Sleeve Shirt -- ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ 30 Natural. Fit is good, material is meh. Came creased like crazy.

Hooded Coat -- 34 Brown. I sized down in this per the model shots, usually wear a Medium, went with the Small. Shoulders are still dropped, sleeves are at a good length. Surprised by how much I like this, as I was expecting this to be a for-sure return. Quick and dirty mirror pick below.

Definitely don’t size up, boxy/slouchy fit as mentioned above as it should be considering it’s a work jacket. I went with my normal medium.

Picked up both the red and the brown pair relaxed wide fit lyocell pants. Was torn between S for a more normal fit or M for that wideness. Decided on the latter because in 2020 we're going wider than tall as silhouette, bless up. :fistbump:

Co-sign on the women's parachute pants being pretty cool. I'm usually around/just below an M in U men's trousers and only tried on the L, but I feel I definitely could/should go down to my equivalent size. Gonna keep an eye on them for sales. Same with the cotton linen suit. It's nice but I'm not in desperate need of it right now.

Short sleeve linen shirt had great colours in the rust and the pink but it's really freaking long in the body.

@Wrenkin @cafedandy how is sizing for the denim stand collar shirts?
Are they wide and long like a tunic? Measurements seem pretty big, but i can't tell if sizing down is the right move.
thanks

I sized down to M and it had a very normal fit--almost like a slim fit L in their regular shirts.

Same thoughts as well, I initially thought the pants were too wide but when I wore them for a few days already, they just flowed nicely. Cuffing it is a good option, too. Will wait for the other colors and the parachute pants on sale as well. The short sleeve shirt does feel a bit big now that I’m wearing it, but sizing down feels awkward, so TTS is ok.

I got the black U trucker TTS. It’s a somewhat oversized fit but I like it.

Just came back from the store to try the U AIRISM COTTON CREW NECK and it is everything i hoped it would be! Soft, stretchy, but not thin at all. Very light but also structured. This is definitely the breakout star of the collection. The T-Shirt of the season. Don't sleep on this you guys.

Wearing size Medium on the pic. The 71 Purple is actually more like Lavender.
