    They pill so much that the models in the store looked shit just from people trying them on. a waste of money imo.

    pills like the fuck, but it's super comfy and has a great shape, so I find myself reaching for it all the time. It's still worth it for $60 since pilling isn't a huge issue for me on a casual piece.

    Strange, I wore mine around the house and no signs of anything. Bah, I'll wear it for a day and see.

    Exactly. Uniqlo isn't some beacon of quality that is somehow cheaper than anything else on the market. Its ok stuff that has better design than most stuff at the same price point. Don't expect it to be the most amazing sweater/jeans/shirt etc. Just know that it will fit well and look better than H&M and Topman. Its not high level stuff

    Sure, but in my experience, anything below epic knit level is fairly random as far as pilling goes. I've had $25 wools from Target that never pilled, and $275 joints from PRL that pilled badly.

    I'm not saying the sweater should be some sort of epic beacon of quality, but that I would rather not spend 90, 60, 30, or even 10 bucks on something that's going to look like crap after a short while. I'd rather put that money toward a much more expensive knit. to each his own though.

    I just bought one of the wool J+ suits in charcoal on the B&S, but I'm pretty sure it's the slim version, because the arms are tight even though the jacket is a large.

    If anyone is interested, I'm going to be putting it back up for sale at the price I bought it ($90 plus actual shipping). Jacket L, pants 34. Seller said it was more or less brand new.

    Just got the +J cahsmere cardigan in wine, LOVING the colour, especially how the colour is fleckled and not completely solid. Now I want the green one badly, anyone know if they still have it in small?

    Sounds like there is a variance in the ones out and you got a good one. The only reason we're complaining is I don't know gap stuff to be this hairy my white tees are covered in yarn as well as it shedding everywhere.

    Maybe I should alternate b/w that and my 2k jil knit LOL.

    Glad I got the pine and wine cardis.

    it is 79% wool, it is pretty fuzzy inside to wear without another layer. I got no clue how to cuff the pants, there is some weird threading where I want to cuff it, I want to hem that part off but worry it about being too short
