• 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

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.
Did you size up or down?

Is the U Airism on any of the online shops?

Edit: Oh yeah, US site.

I always size up cause i like my t shirt loose fitting. But if you like it to fit just right i'd recommend stay true to your size.
How tall are you? Online the model is supposed to be 1.86 and wearing an S, then it sounds like it runs pretty big.

I'm 5 ft 9 and 135 lbs. If you check the size chart, it is pretty accurate. I sized up cause i like loose fitting tees in the summer.

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.
I'd love to see a fit pic of the lyocell pant, I'm thinking of picking up the brown

So the first part of my Uniqlo U shipment arrived yesterday. Got the Cuban collar shirt in dark gray (S & M) and the jersey shorts in black (M). The jersey shorts were HUGE with a crotch almost like a harem pant. I was hoping more for a little bit of tailoring. The material is nice and an upgrade from the mainline jersey shorts. I like the wide silhouette but just couldn't handle the low crotch and the inseam going past the knees at the same time. The Cuban collar shirt I was looking forward to but disappointed. Something was just off...I think the crisp fabric was not a friend to the more relaxed fit. There just a small bit of difference between S & M with regards to shoulder fit and body width. The dark gray collar was a bit of a difficult shade...couldn't get it to look good with darker blacks or even olives.
Today the second part of my shipment comes in with Uniqlo U airism t-shirts..fingers crossed as I have loved this silhouette in previous seasons and looking forward to a less dense heavy fabric to wear in summer.

I just noticed the Uniqlo website updated the model as wearing a size M...

Disappointed to see the active shorts (formerly Active Utility Shorts) changed to nylon this year. The material last year was a smoother and more durable poly-cotton blend. These feel like Patagonia Baggies with a belt, which isn't a bad thing, just not as good as last year.

Couldn’t agree more, best item from U in terms of combining the foward look with Uniqlo tech... light but structured, smooth silky and cool to the touch. My absolute favorite tee in a long while.

The cotton blend does seem nice, may give it a try. I know people liked the thicker 100% cotton boxy UU tees but I found they did not have enough stretch in them.

A few seasons back the UU tees were less rough and had more give, the newer versions are way more hefty but do age nicely after several washes.

***does anybody know if the wide-fit U tee (the one with pocket and drop tail) differ much from past seasons?

It's not as rough compared to last year. The surface is much smoother.
