    The oxfords on the site with the "new" tag appear to have more substantial collars. Anyone know if that's the case? I always liked their oxfords, but the collar left a lot to be desired.

    Uh, there's no such thing as fitting perfectly for just a height and weight. I'd say medium.

    I don't see any new tags on the site, but I always liked the normal cheaper oxfords compared which has thicker material and fits me better compared to the easy care line which is softer/thinner but with shoulders too narrow for me. I guess you can say the former ones have more substantial collars.

    On second look, the oxfords just look to have a better collar roll than what I remember them having. Or it could just be that the top button in these pics is undone:

    Bought that exact shirt in medium when I was in Seoul this winter - you're right, it's just that the top button's undone.

    The collars are a bit larger this season.

    Yeah, but their stock photos have generally shown their shirting buttoned all the way up.

    edit:


    Sizing still the same?

    I didnt mean that literally lol. I heard that uniqlo's button ups run bigger than their other shirts. Not sure what size I should go and I will be ordering via suddenlee. I really want to avoid a return/exchange.

    Sizing questions always refer to Uniqlo UK

    First consider shoulder measurement
    Next consider chest measurement

    should be easy peezy

    I think so, maybe a little larger? Nothing substantial, from what I recall.

    maybe a tad bigger, but not enough to warrant sizing down even more.

    Is the size chart consistent with all of their shirts? Ive heard that their shirts do not fit consistently and button ups run bigger.. just want to make sure

    Actually looking at the size chart on the US website, I guess my Uniqlo is using Asian sizing which is one size up. So you should go with S.



    No they're not consistent at least from my experience. Linen shirts are very baggy, easy care shirts are narrower in the shoulders, while the denim and normal oxfords fit nicely for me.

    fabric on the new oxfords is much nicer than the previous. fit is better as well.

    I had some mediums that fit well, but I think I'm gonna have to go up to a large and maybe just get them tailored because the arms were a bit too slim.

    edit: I don't know why I just posted that. I read it after posting and it's just me basically thinking out loud about information irrelevant to anyone else. :)

    I would buy US small, as this season runs larger. I am 5'10" 145lbs and I found the XS just too tight. US Medium will be too big.

    My 2 cents about the oxfords, they're not really designed for be wore untucked, this season at least. I am 5'7 140 and an Asian medium on me runs a bit big, they fit shoulder wise but everything else is pretty non-slim, I might have pretty wide shoulders through
