    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    i got size 30 to fit a 32 waist, and the chart was almost fully accurate, including the waist. i got my pair over the summer so i don't know if the newer ones are any different. size chart still looks the same though.

    i tried one in my recent order, and took measurements incidentally. mine is 070903 (the first one in your post).
    size S - pit to pit 20.5", sleeve 8.25", shoulders 18", length 27.5"
    so, use the chart as a guide but expect variation, as with basically everything they carry.
    anyway, it's a better fitting shirt than you would expect for $6. fabric is smooth and comfortable out of the package, and softened up more after a washing/drying. drying it also improved the fit in the sleeves and narrowed the shoulders a bit, which i liked. only thing i don't like is that the V could stand to be lower; might be a problem depending on your button down shirts.

    what uniqlo apparently does is come out with a new run of an item (with a new, higher item number), and leave the previous run's item page on the site until it's all sold. they must not want to consolidate. or something like that, hell if i know what they're doing. it's the same with a few other items, e.g. crewneck sweatshirts. confusing for sure. i doubt there is much difference between the two v-necks.

    I still have a few oxfords from 2 or 3 years ago back when they were still using that thicker, softer fabric and the collars have a nice roll. The ones they sell now, not so much.

    The UU shirts have really really thin crappy buttons that have the hardiness of a fortune cookie.

    Yessssssss, mission accomplished.

    Navy M Tas suit jacket came back into stock, got that and a matching trousers, and picked up the grey sweatpants to put it over $100 for free ship. Will report if the grey is the same fit as the others when I get this in about a week.

    Tell me about it, been checking several times a day for weeks now. [​IMG] I mean, sure it's not as nice as the suits that I have that are 10x the price, but for under $100 (pants and jacket)...it's criminally good.

    Trousers have a full size full basically, but the jacket is perpetually out of stock. It re-updates with stock (i assume returns) throughout the day.

    These sweatpants look good to me, but I could use some help with sizing. No experience with Uniqlo.

    My waist fluctuates between a true 33 and 34, so I wear a tag 32 in most brands at my largest. According to the general sizing chart, Uniqlo's medium stops at 33 and the large runs from 33 to 36. The inseam on the large is longer than I would like, so I'm hoping the medium would fit me perfectly.

    Are these S, M, L ranges vanity sized at all? Do you think their medium sweatpants would be comfortable at 34?

    I don't understand the policy of not displaying sizes that are out of stock, makes it look like they don't even offer XS half of the time

    Stopped by the SF store today, left with sweatshirt + sweatpants and some heat tech. Sad that there aren't any EFM crew necks in store.

    I'm thinking about driving to a mall for no other reason than to try on Express v-necks. Just made a post about it here that explains why I'm looking at Express.

    Didn't want to copy and paste my thoughts about Express into the Uniqlo thread but it does give this post some context.

    It would save me a lot of time and money if I thought that the v-necks by Uniqlo could work just as well for me, but unfortunately I won't be able to try one on until I get around to placing a worthwhile order. And there's a sale going at Express that expires Sunday, so I'm pressed for a decision.

    Please forgive the machismo of this question, but what do you think is the largest chest measurement that would fit into a Uniqlo medium? I read a post somewhere by a guy who was 45" and he said he wore a large by personal preference but a medium was wearable. The pit to pit on the Uniqlo v-neck sizing chart is 21" for a medium, so I have my doubts.

    Hopefully someone can vouch for the capacity of a medium, because the large would probably be too long in the body, very nearly too wide in the shoulders, and far too billowy. If someone could please verify that a medium would work for a 44" chest measurement then I might hold off on this Express purchase until I can try a Uniqlo v-neck on for size.

    Thanks again for answering my earlier question about waist sizes.
