    Over 1 year*, expect shirt sleeves to shorten and collars to be a bit more snug when buttoned all the way up.
    body will not shrink at all, perhaps a tad the chest. length will still the same**

    Everything will still look the same and fit. Not likely the shirt will turn abnormal.

    *You may decide to toss your oxfords after 1 year like Mr. Fuuma
    **Based on rugby oxford in a thicker cotton, results may vary


    Consult Uniqlo website for current pricing

    Do we just pay the full price for the OCBDs that are on sale and get refunded after?

    im not a fan of the normal uniqlo oxfords. the fit is really strange -- super boxy with narrow shoulders and a tiny collar. not good. the UU is better because it has interesting details.

    I think it's a good balance of price / quality. Right now I'm a bit worried that Uniqlo is slowly going to become a discount retailer and the quality/vision will drop over time.

    They are a discount retailer, but right now the quality/price ratio is surprisingly high. Of course they'll water their products down to wring out profits eventually. We've seen that story countless times from brands large and small. They're tied to the wall street, so they'll have increased pressure over time on them to make their quarterly numbers.

    Are we talking about the OCBDs? The collar on the UU OCBD is even tinier than the regular Uniqlo OCBD.

    I stand corrected on the UU shirt not being an OCBD.
