    it all fits very boxy though

    Is the stuff in Japan cut differently? I have a few button downs from there, and they're the best fitting OTR from a mall brand

    Whatever fits my shoulders/chest will be like a fucking tent on my waist. It was made for people with no drop. I still get most of my basics (and wardrobe I guess) from Uniqlo just because it's so cheap and easy to tailor.

    Oh, mine aren't that bad around the waist once they shrink. They don't fit perfect but they're probably the only OTR mall shirts I don't really bother tailoring [​IMG]

    just hit me up mikey.

    P.S. uniqlo stuff fits TTS across all of their shit so that works for tees/polos/hoodies/sweaters etc.


    Yeah I'll hit you up when I'm ready. And if they fit really boxy then I must be really boxy [​IMG]

    Uniqlo fits well around the chest, but in my experience and like aeglus says, it fits like a tent around stomach/waist. I prefer Lands End Canvas > Uniqlo for my cheap but good oxfords.

    yeah, boxy vs. slim is meaningless for me because nothing OTR is gonna fit my shoulders+drop and so i get everything tailored anyway. The slim fit shirts are made for people with my shoulders but not my chest, so i get a little guido-y. (though I do have a couple black Stretch Slim Fit Shirts for when my gf drags me nightclubbing.)

    What're your measurements at aeg?

    You guys do know that the UK site has complete measurements right? Also on most of the products on the US site, you can click on size chart and you'll be redirected over to the measurements on the UK site. All the measurements are item-specific too, not just a general measurement guideline.

    Just copped a +J suit through email ordering. Went surprisingly smooth this time as I emailed them at 2am (Pacific time) last night, and I got an email at 9 am this morning, which I promptly responded to, and not more than 10 minutes later I received a call from which I placed my order. Most of the +J stock from F/W is on sale now, though I've been told stock is low on most items.

    Earlier today, I was able to look up an item on the uniqlo website, email them with the full item code, color code, and size. The NYC store called me back, took my CC, and is shipping me the item for the website price + standard shipping. Not bad.

    Awesome, I think I'll take you up on this in the very near future. I've tried ordering some j+ stuff via email and have yet to find a single thing they have in my size. After 7 emails and having them tell me they dont have want I want, I gave up.

    How much do you charge to do it, btw?
