    i think it'll be fine after a tailor takes a look at it (especially since the shoulder fit looks okay), although this season's sizing seems to be a tad bigger (my XS suit from this season is spot on while the my XS suit from a few seasons back is too snug in the shoulders now)

    The pants are already slim through my thighs, so I can't go a size down on those. You think I should go to a medium on the jacket? The shoulders just might be too constricting then. I definitely agree with you that the midsection and below on the jacket has too much fabric. The chest shoulders and upper arms are all pretty good. I can't decide if shortening it or adding more waist suppression would fix the jacket.

    Just called, almost everything +J is sold out. No flannel suits left. Looks like I'll be keeping this one.

    I think if you post the fit pics in the MC thread, they can give you some pretty good advice since some of them are tailors or have previous experience with this stuff. They come up with more problems for a suit fit than we can imagine....

    Just went to 34th st today.
    Lots of size larges in suits and such, and rare mediums... M and S only in cashmere + merino sweaters, shirts, and one black puffy blazer ( fit kinda sucks though)
    I want to buy the woman's section :(

    A good tailor will be able to fix that perhaps.

    From first glance seems to be a lot of issues with the body of the jacket.

    If you like it, get it altered first then repost

    I thought the +J suit jackets came with working buttonholes? If so, I'm not sure how well the sleeves will turn out as it looks like you need an inch or more taken off.

    Nope. The wool flannel did not so altering sleeve is good to go

    Ideally though, that jacket could be .5-1 inch shorter, but I wouldn't go messing with length for .5 of an inch.

    What's the excitement behind the Undercover colab? What's Undercover like?

    I can't help to think that the +J will come down as the best mainstream colab ever. Jil Sander was the perfect match for uniqlo.

    Until previews come out from Sense, Popeye, Men's Non-no, etc we won't have a clue. Undercover is a label that is hard to pin down. Takahashi could just release technobabble pieces or graphics with cargo shorts. He could release wrinkly next-level punk wear or suiting with advanced cuts. It lands March 8th so we'll know by then.

    As long as:

    * The shoulders fit well
    * The armholes aren't too high or low
    * The lapels sit on your chest while the jacket is buttoned
    * The length of the jacket is no more than .5 inch longer than what you need

    the rest is fixable IMHO. Looking at the pictures, all that seems true for this suit except the armholes seem a bit big in some of the pictures for some reason. I'd definitely take in the chest from the sides, maybe take .5 inch off of the bottom, and make the pant legs slimmer, in addition to the obvious hemming of the pants and sleeve shortening. But if it were me, I'd resell because of the armholes.

    Went and bought a bunch of +j stuff - wish I had jumped on the fishtail in khaki when they had it in M - not a fan of the lighter beige nor the black.

    Hi there, just wondering about getting a uniqlo suit to go out clubbing in since I almost had someone's bloody mary go all over my TaT suit last week. I'm pretty interested in the +J collection, not sure if any of the suiting there is left now though.

    Here's the catch, I train quite a bit and the lats plus pectorals leave me with a circa 42inch chest now. Unfortunately my shoulders are still the same as that of a 36R (around 16-17inches from memory). Does anyone have measurements of a typical jacket or know if I could let out the chest?
