    Also, you can say Happy Socks or whatever are $6 more (and Happy Socks are actually worse than Uniqlo socks IME), but that's also three times the price. Either go big with socks or buy Uniqlo.

    part of the fun i suppose is ordering different things and seeing what works best. like I said, the dry shirts are pretty awesome and will probably become my new undershirt. Even though the cut is baggier, the price is so cheap, i'll probably buy a ton and get them tailored. Underwear is nice as well.
    I haven't tried the button down shirts but people seem to like them. I'll try the merino and cashmere for shits and giggles, though i'll probably be disappointed as the only reference point cashmere I own is from lanvin lol.

    that being said, I still think the UU jacket and hoodies are garbage, and i've bought better from h&m at around the same price or even less.

    for the record i've never worn happy socks, but when I handled them they instantly felt much better than uniqlo. also, I didn't mention which style of socks I got ( the really thin rib knit ones).

    Walked around outside in -8C with the ultra light down vest underneath my TOJ and I was so toasty. Highly recommended.

    Layering on heattech shirts and their heattech scarf, and I can see it working quite well until it gets quite a bit colder.

    not sure if this has been said, but these uniqlo slim fit cords are soooo boss

    http://www.uniqlo.com/us/store/made-for-all/men-slim-fit-corduroy-jeans/073395-33-032

    i got the dark green and ive been wearing it everyday and i'm starting to see some fadez. (on the label it says they are dyed so that with more wear they will fade like jeans or whatever)

    they're on sale right now. i might pick up another dark green pair for keeps

    Does anyone else find UNIQLO's sizing to be inordinately huge for a non-American retailer? Their regular oxfords fit like tents, and I'm really disappointed that I have to size down to an XS in their "slim-fit" down jackets.

    On a more positive note, the quality of the down jacket is pretty nice for the price.

    They label their sizes differently here than everywhere else. Asian S = our XS. Although if it fits, I can't see why it'd matter to you whether or not you had to size down anyway

    Is the uniqlo pea jacket any good, or should I wait for the normal peacoat to restock (if ever)?

    Just ordered 2 cashmere crew necks and 2 heattech v neck undershirts. I was just gonna get one cashmere but i couldn't decide between light gray and dark gray, so I just got both. The dark gray is the "lightweight" cashmere so I'll get to see how much difference it makes.
