Are the 100% wool sweaters itchy at all?
Specifically for the U mock neck middle gauge fisherman knit, it wasn’t itchy for me, but some may have sensitive skin. I’d recommend sizing up on knits so there’s allowance, and wearing an undershirt can help too.

Thanks. That's exactly the one I was curious about.
They were in my cart until I read multiple reviews on the jp site saying it was itchy.
Thank you. That was what I was worried about. In that case, I'll play it safe and avoid it altogether. I've tried on a wool sweater at a Uniqlo store before; it definitely irritated my skin. I can't handle that.

Sorry yes I meant the UU one

Is this TTS you're wearing here? That seems to be on the slimmer side. I like the oversized look personally, so this would be to small for me, but as I mentioned the measurement seem huge. A 25" body width as normally an XL/XXL, but they saying that for a medium.
It's quite oversized. Just like all the other UU shirts. I wore it while demonstrating and teaching taichi and it felt perfectly loose and comfortable in that situation. I like it very much!

Like it as well, fits as wide as the oxford and corduroy ones. Just a bit different sizing on the U Broadcloth shirts, they fit a bit closer (I notice this every FW when some items fit less loose), so just check accordingly when fitting :)

Anyone have experience with the Uniqlo sweatshirt sizing? The description says relaxed fit but to size up for an oversized fit. Is that necessary or is it already pretty relaxed? Typically buy M or L depending on size guide. Usually a M if it specifically says garment is oversized (like the U oversized T or the oversized polos from spring)

I would say it's pretty standard sizing, so not slim fit. Size down if you like it slim, TTS if you want a normal fit and one up if you want it oversized. All personal preference really...

Careful with the wide fit U sweatshirts. They look big but in my experience they’re normal size with a dropped shoulder.

The U wide fit sweatshirt this season are a bit sized for women compared to last season's mens, so you need to size up. Same goes for the hoodies in my fit experience if you want a bit of allowance. Mainline Uniqlo sweats are regular fit for me, agree with above tips on sizing.

Does anyone have experience with this year's balmacaan coat? I'm not sure about sizing/quality I'm a 36" waist 46" chest and normal somewhere between L and XL but the size chart makes me wonder if I should shoot for a medium like I did with the hunting jacket this last spring

What is weird is that in the sweat shirt I had to size down from my regular sizing. Very strange, everything else fits TTS for me

Depending on the style you got and desired fit, not really. They have both slim and regular (vintage cut) mainline sweatshirts. The UU one's fit different again apparently

Anybody here got the Men's U sweatpants and thought it's too cropped??? I am only 5 ft. 9. Not even that tall..
Women's U sweatpants in one size up than my normal size fits way better but they sold out so fast...

Quite a few of the reviews on the website also complain about the length. Was planning to pick up a pair because I've got a limited wardrobe where I'm staying atm and don't have anything particularly warm, but passed on the sweatpants because of that
