    Uniqlo sizing is kind of fucked, I'm normally a large but wear a M in uniqlo button ups and a small in the ul down. It's pretty slim and fitted which is the look i was going for with it.

    The new heavy gauge cardigans are exactly what I've been looking for. Just wish they were 100% wool

    you sized wrong...mine in L (as the other uniqlo pieces I have) is fitted, armholes are a tad too small and I don't even have particularly big arms

    am I the only one that was their typical size in all uniqlo shit?

    L in v neck sweaters - TTS, though like a more traditional 'slim' fit
    L in uld - vest was fitted, armholes slightly too tight; jacket was more relaxed but still decently fitted
    L in flannels - kinda like the jacket--decently fitted with some room, though not blousey in the waist
    L in hoodie - def fitted, but not uncomfortably so

    I don't know guys. Maybe it works for you but I've tried on typical REI brands where the shoulders, arms, and torso are much more tailored and even though its $200+ I'd still pay the premium to not look like a potato sack. YMMV.

    While I'm at it I'll review some stuff from my last order:

    Bomber Jacket - It's a $40 jacket but fit is spot on. Should be plenty warm and dry for socal autumns. Did I mention that it's a perfect for a $40 jacket?

    Men Seamless Boxer Briefs - Seem to fit even smaller than usual underwear. They're refusing to return because I ripped the packaging to discover that they're tiny. +2 or +3 for sizing.

    Corduroy Shirt - Pretty nice but returning because a lot of uniqlo shirting is a tad small on me.

    Sweat Room Shoes - Comfy and nice designs for $10. Getting a set for fam.

    Wool Blended Slim Flat Front Pants - Non stretchy wool blend that feels pretty hefty. Reordering a size up. Really wish they would bring back the lighter wool blends they had earlier this year. Or even the tasmanian wool which I missed out on. This is really pissing me off, current slacks selection is all northern climate shit.

    Got the same two cardigans, arriving tomorrow. Will post pics.

    I still need to get a few lambswool sweaters. I thought about trying cashmere, but buying cashmere from Uniqlo just doesn't feel right...I'll stick to the cheaper, disposable stuff.

    I have one of the shawl collar ones. I sized up to a large, and the fit ended up being spot on -loose and not fitted like their model photos.
    I'm a medium in the slim fit oxfords and a large in the efm cardigans.

    Quality is acceptable for a beater. You're not going to find a better knit under $100, unless it's on sale or you get lucky on Yoox.

    Did you go with L?

    Cashmere feels worse than the merino and is twice the price, I wouldn't bother.

    thanks guys yes large on both, didn't notice at first but there are two chunky shawls so I got the patterned one since I'm not a fan of all the placket ribbing on the other though I preferred the speckling on the latter navy.

    The thing with the new cardigans is they have poly. I much prefer cotton or wool.

    Just got my shawl collar (patterned) and button-up turtleneck cardigans. They feel better than I expected—similar to a couple of wool/cotton blend knits I have. The light gray shawl collar looks even better in person. The navy button-up was a little underwhelming—maybe another color would have helped.

    In the end, though, I'm sending both back. I wear medium in pretty much all Uniqlo stuff but should have gone with a large. Medium is fitted, though not too much, but a looser fit would look better. The deal breaker is the length—too short for a moderately tall guy. Even the large might be too short, though I'll give it a try. Length shouldn't be a problem if you're under 6'.

    I might get two shawl collars next time around and skip the button-up.
