    You probably have small shoulders. All the OCBD's will require darting if you have a decent drop.

    Ok I am trying stuff on and looking at measurements. Here's my feedback.

    For the record - I am 5'8", 165 with a 39" chest

    Slim Fit Oxford Long Sleeve - Medium fits PERFECT for me. I wear ties often with Oxfords and this buttons up just fine even though my neck is a little big (~15.75")
    Crew Neck Short Sleeve Tee (read these shrink a lot after wash?) - Got this in a medium. The material surprised me. It's very similar to Patagonia shirts which are sort of a polyester material. I use them for hikes/working out. I was expecting it to be cotton (assumed). If I get confirmation they shrink, I'll keep, otherwise size down
    Dry V Neck Short Sleeve Tee (read these shrink a lot after wash?) - Same as Crew neck
    Extra Fine Cotton Broadcloth Check LS - Got medium. Too large. Will return. if I buy again, I'll size down.
    Flannel Check LS Shirt - Got medium. Same as Broadcloth. Will size down in the future.
    Men Microfleece Lounge Set - Medium. Wow this is a really pile of crap. Even for $20 it is absolutely trash. The bottom is ok and actually has a neat hemming feature I've never seen where you can just take a pair of scissors to it, but the top is terrible. I know it's cheap so I might sit on it over the weekend before deciding if I am returning it.

    Think you're expecting a BoO type fit, generally would not recommend a small for 39 chest. I have same and a medium is perfect slim, not skinny. This is for the bd shirts.

    anyone care to comment on the tasmanian wool trousers? Thinking of grabbing a pair in each colour, they don't seem very slim though.

    The slim oxford button down in Medium fits me perfect. I have odd sizing issues. If I pick sizing based on just one element, it often throws the rest off. For example, I button the top button often because I wear ties. I have a largish neck (~16"). To get a 16" on must BD shirts, you're looking at a medium to large. Or a 40-42 chest. I often have to deal with blooming or long sleeves. I know this is the nature of ready to wear, off the rack clothing but it's frustrating.

    They are not slim fit, but not classic fit either. The ass it not baggy, and the crotch is not too tight when sitting down, which is what I mean by fits "well" since I'm buying them for work. The fit pics on the Uniqlo site are accurate.

    Maybe others can chime in, but I'd be suspect of the measurements for bottoms unless someone can verify a specific piece. As I noted in my post recapping my order, the measurements for the jeans I bought were off by a decent amount for the waist, rise, and thigh.

    This was for the regular fit straight color jeans (34).

    Waist: 36" (site) vs. 34"
    Rise: 9.5" (site) vs. 10.75ish"
    Thigh: 13" (site) vs. 12"

    No leg opening given on site, but it's 8" on this pair.

    I ordered this http://www.uniqlo.com/us/store/made-for-all/men-corduroy-jacket/070266-39-002

    this http://www.uniqlo.com/us/store/goods/074881-04-003

    and this http://www.uniqlo.com/us/store/goods/072742-54-003

    all size small.

    I'm 5'8; 39" chest, 31" waist. about 155lbs this week.

    The jackets both fit snugly, but overall pretty well for under $100 jackets. Sleeves are about an inch too long but are easily tailored. Fairly cropped length, but that's how I like it.

    I suspect mediums would have had too broad shoulders, though maybe a better fit in the chest.

    I ordered the cord jacket because I love wearing brown cord jackets and my old one was damaged last fall. I haven't seen anything so far this year that wasn't ugly and had a decent cut, but this fit the bill nicely. A little shinier than I normally like my corduroy, but it'll be a fine replacement for my old jacket.

    The "tweed" jacket is interesting. It's half lined, with very little structure, which is exactly my style. I'm not a fan of the synthetic fiber, but I also don't realistically expect 100% wool for $99. I normally buy my heavy wools from ralph lauren (polo or rugby), which makes reasonably good stuff. I don't like going much higher end because you only really get to wear wool for maybe 4 months a year here. I'd say that this jacket is not quite as good as the half lined all wool sportcoat that is my go to jacket for fall, owing mainly to the polyester, but the fit and pattern are wonderful.

    The sweater is mixed. On the one hand, it's easily the best lambswool sweater I've seen for under $50. The color is wonderful. On the other hand, the sleeves are a bit longer than I'd like. I usually buy the banana republic merino wool sweaters for cheap layering, and they're spot on. Here I wind up with a few wrinkles of fabric.

    These clothes seem to be geared towards tall, slender men. As someone who's somewhat below average height and has much more muscle than most my height, the fits aren't ideal.

    Considering the price, however, the fits on these things are amazing. I'm going to stick with italian labels for my high end jackets and with MTM for dress shirts, but I don't see any reason why I'd ever bother with the likes of GAP or jcrew or whatever when looking for the cheaper items.
