    That's exactly it -- when you add an item to your Suddenlee cart, there's a field where you can enter the sale price. I think Suddenlee lets you know if the price isn't valid.

    my moneys on the low cause of these sales but whats the diff between the double breasted trench coat and the cotton trench coat, aside from the latter obviously stating cotton, and the soutain collar coat vs cotton single breasted coat.

    yeah sorry, most of the time the product lines seem to be identical between the us and korea, but i havent seen this anywhere else, even on the russian site. we also didnt get the fake sns sweater (at least not yet) so maybe they are diversifying more according to region. its also been like 25 degrees c all month so i dont understand why they released the parka here but not in uk or us.

    tempted to get the padded blazer even though i already picked up a similar jacket already from elsewhere.

    you can never have too many jackets, right?

    31" waist, 21" thigh, 14" calf. I love the color, and the fit is good (S). It'll look better when I cut weight, but I'm glad I didn't go with M. They look good paired with darker colors, though the white T always works. I was surprised that they're fantastic with desert boots, but then again mine started darker than most:

    Anyone have suggestions on a Uniqlo sweater? I'm looking for anything that isn't ill fitting, such as a Banana Republic sweater (yuck). Something slim but not body tight as I usually wear a slim-fit dress shirt underneath.

    If the following, should I go with small (my size) or size down :

    I find that the fit between Uniqlo and Banana Republic is pretty much the same. The Banana Republic and Gap sweaters I have seem pretty slim fitting.

    It's been a while since I had a BR sweater, so I could have been recalling wrong past memory. I do have a Jcrew slim fit sweater, and it's pretty slim, maybe a tad too slim. But I'd prefer to find sweaters in a better price range.

    Hmm, think I might just pull the trigger and order through Sudfenlee.
     
  15. I just tried mine on, I'm generally a small in everything but an xs in uniqlo dress shirts and t shirts and this fits fine as a small.

    Here's the thing:

    1. Extra Fine Merino sweater is only good TTS if you are fit IMO or just hugs you in all the wrong places. That and if you plan on wearing a shirt like OCBD underneath, definitely size up 1.
    2. Lambswool you can stay TTS, maybe even size down 1 as it is a bit more robust and fuller in the body. Also, due to the hand is not as tailored and fitted say its thinner counterpart EFM wool sweater.
    3. Cashmere is butter soft. Not even kidding you, 3 guys were touching and running their fingers down the sweater including myself and we all concurred. Did not get a chance to try on though but from what I can see from the SA holding it up, it is more similar to the lambswool in terms of fit.


    Let's just say the ribbing is much more forgiving on the lambswool than EFM wool sweater.

    For beaters and on promotional sale prices, these knits are good fillers in a wardrobe e.g. I use all mine for work purposes.

    IMO the lambswool may wear better overtime just due to the composition and robustness of the hand. Fibers are much more tightly woven together and hardy. The EFM wool sweater on the other hand is pretty much done for if you get a snag. Worse is the seams at the underarm may even rip if you size incorrectly or gain mass (Happened to me though I think it was shipped with the tear already - QC check).

    I would recommend the lambswool TTS or size down one depending on whether you want to wear it as a standalone piece or layering purposes. Cashmere and EFM wool sweater are neck-and-neck as it is preference and whether you want to pay the $50 price tag difference.

    Stay warm, dudes. Winter is coming

    Also about the Uniqlo Tasmanian suits especially jacket, here is my 'stance'

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    [​IMG][​IMG]


    When viewed from the right angle, the buttoning point is not that bad i.e. as high as some make it out to be, including myself, though something definitely not agreeable if you asked most of MC'ers.

    As you can see when taken from below waist level as in the gray suit, it looks a bit off especially from the button downward to the opening quarters. On the other hand, the navy suit that was photographed illustrates a complete different fitting.

    Also take into consideration that 1) The two jackets were tailored by different shops where the gray was my first foray into alternating a jacket (Took 2-3 times as the first alteration came out with the quarters exaggerating my hips and proportions poorly) 2) As stated, different camera angles, which also reveals how key photography is when and if you decide to post a photo like say contributing to the "What Are You Wearing Today" thread (WAYWT).

    As a first suit I like it overall, but would like something nicer later on. I would also recommend tailoring the matching pants as the original hem is on the large side. The navy suit has a 7" hem and the gray has about 7.75" and the former having little to no break whereas the latter I did not know what it meant to have a "break" i.e. stacking by SW&D terms (All after an alteration -- original hem on a size 31 was about 8.25 +/-)

    Hopefully F/W '12 brings about better fitting and styled jackets, which I am hoping for or I'll just roll with what I have. I think I wrote about this suit offered by Uniqlo before but it bears reminding since questions do come up every few months.

    gettoasty, the navy suit looks better. Did you taper from the knee down to a 7" hem?

    I also found the leg opening to be pretty big, so I just hemmed it a bit shorter.
