    UU shirts or that. Note that Uniqlo has one neck size/sleeve length per chest size, so you should check the measurements before buying unless you interested in inexpensive but poorly fitting shirts.

    How would you all rate their polos and sweaters in terms of quality? Obviously, I'm not expecting top of the line but just something decent enough to hold up for a few months. I'm awaiting the online store to open, since I'm out of the market area, but have heard decent things about their clothing.

    Also in terms of sizing, do you find their items and such to run small/long? I know their supposed to be somewhat slim fitting. I'm about 5'9", 165-170lbs, athletic build (upperbody particularly), 37.5 inch chest, 31-32 inch waist and always am stuck between a small and medium. I notice their sizing chart has small for up to a 38" chest but I'm somewhat apprehensive about going crazy and ordering then find out it's insanely snug or too long.

    fits will vary between garment types, but based on your stats you're probably a Medium

    I'm about the same build as you. Medium runs long in both the arm and body for me. Small fits better in terms of length but chest can be quite fitted almost, but not yet, to the point where the shirt tugs on the buttons.

    Like other company sample sales? I never thought about that.. although I don't follow the fashion world close enough anymore to know what pieces / when.

    They aren't a Uniqlo-only proxy... they proxy anything in the NY area.

    Pretty much all I buy is Uniqlo clothes. Other than the occasional purchase from The Curatory here in Raleigh.

    I think someone asked about the chinos a few pages back...

    Have to say that the slim chinos fit is perfect (for me)...Fitted across hip, no pocket flare, slim thighs, good taper to 7.5 inch leg opening. I have had trousers made with better fabrics, but for the price and the fit, extremely happy with these.

    *Note - I do possess the chicken-leg trifecta of ghetto-booty/thunder thigh/scrawny calves.

    Any opinions/experiences on these wool blended jackets? The navy is a "Tasmanian Wool" slim fit.

    Hoping these make it onto the e-commerce store.

    I've heard about this place. What do they carry there? I'm about 20 mins from Raleigh.
