    From suddenlee, I ordered the OCBD oxfords yesterday immediately when I found out they were on sale. These have been on my list to get for a while. I ordered blue,white, dark grey in size S
    "All of the oxfords you ordered are on sale for $14.90 this week"

    Suddenlee order from last week came in yesterday. My houghts:

    • Their regular oxfords in XS fit me perfectly, but the XS easy jacket is too big. Slightly too wide in the shoulders, and could be slimmed down a little around the armholes. I'm not sure if the shoulder measurements are different in the slim fit linen jacket, but that might be a better fit for me.
    • UU oxford is alright, fabric isn't any better than the regular oxford. Buttons are on the larger side and there's only single buttons on the cuffs, so I think I prefer the regular version.
    • Extra fine cotton shirts - my light blue oxford is nice, should be a good lightweight option for summer. I also got a white shirt, the color is obviously different but the fabric also feels cheaper / paper-ish compared to the blue version. Both shirts' buttons are plastic, not MOP - those must be offered on another shirt style.
    • Socks are great for $3.

    Both the UU easy jacket and oxford have a small UU logo present - on the cuff for the shirt, and right above the chest pocket on the jacket. Nothing super obvious but still unfortunate. Since I'm not liking the jacket, I'll probably return the UU oxford and white EFC shirts as well, haven't decided yet (PS - anyone know which mailing service is the cheapest for packages? FedEx either charges too much or I picked a fancier delivery than needed). If they have the regular oxfords available in XS for the light pink and purple, I might place an order for those while they're on sale and get some more socks as well.

    Really like the look of the blue rider, but I can't find it anywhere on the UK site, does anyone know if it's US only? or if not, what collection is it in?

    The $20 cardigans from the regular collection, IIRC, are thicker cotton than the UU ones. I would have copped a Navy or red one if they had in my size.

    How was the fit of the EFC shirts vs the regular oxfords?


    Also, got my order in... All the uu stuff I got was pretty decent.
    Easy jacket - fabric felt good, better than I was expecting... great fit (for me at least)
    cropped pants - good loungewear, fabric wasn't quite as nice as the easy jacket but fine for $20 pants.
    blouson - nice lightweight jacket, nice details, wish the hood was a tiny bit bigger, but then I kinda have a big head....

    Also picked up a pair of navy size 30 uu cropped chinos and two xs long sleeve uu tees (grey and olive) that didn't fit if anyone wants them before I return them.

    Do any of you guys think the UU oxfords with the big button look better than the normal oxfords? Gonna cop some oxfords tomorrow and would like some opinions to weigh my choice.
