    Another OCBD fit question (sorry). I'm 5'11", 160 lb, 38" chest and 31" waist. I tried on the slim fit OCBD in both S and M. Small was a little dangerous, waist and length were good, but the shoulder and chest were fine if i didn't pull my arms back. There's pulling along the placket if I move my arms in any motion aside from a walking swing. Any shrinking probably would have made it too tight. The medium was a better fit (not too snug) in the shoulders and chest, but the collar's a little big (probably doesn't matter since I don't plan on wearing ties with these) and the waist is huge. My main issue is with the waist.

    My question is, is it better to go with the medium slim fit and throw it in the wash and dryer, hoping for some shrink in the waist (and body length too?), or go with a small regular and hope for a better fit? I see the charts on Uniqlo, and slim M and regular S have the same chest and shoulder, but I'm more worried about the waist size, which isn't on there. Can anyone with the regular S provide a measurement at the second to last button? Also, when people complain with extra material on the back for the regular, is that upper or lower back? If I go with the slim M, how much shrinking should I expect? Thanks for the help.

    I forgot to mention that I am trying to correct my posture, but if I stand with good posture (shoulders back, chest out), there is slight pulling on the top two buttons for the slim S, more if I move.

    I have the exact same problem. Ended up going with M, which is flaring out at the waist aka I can grab on the nips of fabric on the side. Everything else fits loose, but slim in the right places. I'm hoping a hot cycle in the dryer will shrink it a bit and it will be perfect.

    I found my S shirts needed three top buttons undone for it not to pull [​IMG]

    Let me know how it turns out. But yeah, those top three are the ones that pull for me as well. I think if the jump from S to M had an increase in the chest, but not so much the back, it'd be nice as well (and kept the waist the same).

    Successfully shrank my slim fit oxfords after washing on warm and drying on normal. Will need to pick up some more next time they go on sale.

    So I've been looking for a piece of beater outerwear that I can wear anywhere and I've narrowed it down to the EG storm coat from last winter season and the UU fishtail parka. Could anyone here make a comparison? If not, how warm and weatherproof is the UU?

    Are you really comparing EG with Uniqlo..?

    Both are about as water resistant as each other, and will give you similar amount of weather protection. From my experience EG will look better the more you look, and UU will look cheaper the more you look.
    The only piece I really liked in UU were the shirts and easy jackets.

    I am indeed comparing the two...within the context that I can find the UU parka for ~$50 and the EG only at retail price.

    Actually I think I just answered my own question

    Their Slim Fit dress shirts fit great, but the quality is something left to be desired. Very thin material. I bought mines for full price at $29.99, but even at $19.99, I would save up for something else.

    Kinda harsh for a $20-$30 slim shirt. I bought a bunch for daily office wear and they've been fine. 5-7 washes and they're still great. About to pick up some more.

    Obviously if you want a shirt for specialish occasions then look elsewhere.

    Most of the ones I've tried are pretty decent, especially for the price, and aren't that thin. It depends which fabric you get, some are better than others.

    For anyone that has both...do the slim fit dress shirts fit the same as the slim fit oxfords?

    I wash my uniqlo oxfords (bother slim and regular fits) in 40°c and hang them to dry, and they don't seem to shrink at all

    The slim dress shirts are a tiny bit slimmer than the oxfords. There must be some variation too because the solids like gray and off white feel roomier than the check patterned versions.

    Dress shirts are the bomb :slayer:

    Love the general spread collar and the chest pocket is fine.
