    Wish more of the print shirts had button-down collars. Uniqlo's spread collars are pretty flimsy.

    I like it flimsy when I do not have to wear a tie. Looks nice and soft to wear under a cardigan or jacket. If you want the plastic stays does a well enough job of keeping the collar spreads straight.

    When I need to wear a tie though the cheap plastic collar stays work fine. YMMV

    I now have enough shirts to rotate 1.5 weeks. Now just pick up whatever I like to add into the rotation. #feelsgood

    Only thing I would change is the chest pocket but I guess that comes in handy when you in a hurry or your hands are full. The styles of print are also tasteful IMO.

    Warning: I did receive a shirt with 3/4 sleeve when it was apparent the photos online as well as description revealed it to be full length sleeve. Was a bit bummed because it was the medium blue stripes shirt I've been wanting to wear. Now it is not even online in my size anymore e.g. I need a 15 1/2 or 'S' http://www.uniqlo.com/us/store/life...ref=mens-clothing/mens-tops/mens-dress-shirts

    If you ask your tailor to add double darts starting at where the shoulders blades fold with the extra bit of material, the shirt fits wonderfully in my experience.

    How is the sizing of the Uniqlo slim fit goes, compared to the Levi's 511s? Same/slightly smaller/slightly larger?

    The fit is also similar?

    How the quality of the jeans sold in the US and UK compare? The UK site says Japanese denim, the US site says denim from Greece, Australia and the US (the non selvedge, cheaper jeans).

    I believe they all have the same inseam. Small is for 28-30 waists, and Medium is for 30-33.

    Maybe one of you could help me out.
    I am on a very tight budget and need a few shirts for the next 3 months.

    I am 5'5, 160lbs, an average build, not all fat not all muscle. I have a little bit of a beer belly.
    I used to be 145lbs, slimmer belly, and slimmer waist,

    before:
    favorite pants Guess premium lincoln jeans: size 30. now I am in Levi 511 32/30s with a little extra room, a 31/30 would be perfect right now.
    favorite shirts, tailor made, to tight right now.
    store shrits: Express men 1mx fitted size small. (http://www.express.com/clothing/fitted+1mx+stretch+cotton+shirt/pro/0303885/cat1007 )
    Now the express shirts pull in the chest and in the stomach area.
    I usually wear a blazer, generally a 36S express photographer size, ( http://www.express.com/clothing/cotton+sateen+photographer+blazer/pro/6113046/cat560005 )
    This blazer now fits tight in the stomach area, but is still usable

    obviously I need to lose weight but, to get me trough the next few months until I get back in shape what would you recommend as far as uniqlo sizing oxfords

    http://www.uniqlo.com/us/store/goods/076081-01-003

    Slim fit , or regular fit, small or XS ?

    I really appreciate any help I can get, and there is no Uniqlo near by otherwise I would just go try it on. '
    Thank you
    -Nate

    Either regular small or slim fit medium. You'll have to get the shirts hemmed/shortened most likely too.

    I just got the slim fit oxford in medium today, didn't fit, I wish I would of thought to take a tape and measure it before boxing it back up...I'm 5'10" 163 pounds in-between a 33 - 34" waist and 38" chest. The shirt buttoned, except for the bottom button was pretty snug and if I moved my arms it pulled at the button holes. I guess I'm going to try a large slim fit and see what that's like.

    I'm looking for the input of Uniqlo Sweat Men Sweat Full Zip Hoodie, how is the quality? Will it last for a while before tearing out? The material is 100% cotton, which I feel very nice for a $20 hoodie.

    Those cotton blazers look just the right level of dress casual I'll have to pick up a few. Thanks for the photos

    I'm about the same size. 151lbs (last I checked), 5'5", 38 chest, 33 true waist, and I bought the small in the regular fit (before there was slim fit) and needed to get it taken in at the waist and darted in the back. Straight from the store the chest was pretty spot on. Sorry I can't help with the slim fits.
