    They raised oxford prices again? Fuck, I wanted to go buy some like 2 months ago...

    Part of the appeal of uniqlo is that it was so cheap; the inexpensiveness clouded a bit the quality, and while some of the stuff is actually really nicely done, the cheapness becomes more apparent and we feel more ripped off when we have to pay a lot more.

    at that point, much better off waiting until Rugby goes on sale, which is regularly.

    I'm looking to buy http://www.uniqlo.com/us/explorer.ht...067728-000-69/

    Does anyone know how it fits? The shoulder measurement listed for a small is 16.9" which seems a bit small to me.
    I usually wear a 36 and my jackets have a 17.5" shoulder. Should I just go for the medium?
    Also the body lengths of the jackets seem really short. Does anyone know if they measure from the top of the collar or the bottom? Because a M has a 28.7" length :/

    ^ Fits slim tts. I am a small 38 and it fits well. I have broad shoulders so I don't think it'll be an issue for you. It is a pretty short jacket for a suit, though.

    ^Sorry, should have specified – I wear a small. If you're 5'7 I don't think you'll have any length issues, I'm 6'1 and it seems fine.

    the ocbd's that were 19.90 last summer, are now 29.90. This really bothers me.

    Ah, shit. I wanted to get dark gray/light gray before they inevitably raised prices again.

    Oh well. Blue + red + beige will do me well.

    Anyone having these shorts? Are they true to size?


    I picked these up in NY store 2 weeks ago and had to buy L - with jeans waist of 32. M's wouldn't even close [​IMG]

    I'm 5'7" or so, with a 36" chest, and I bought a +j stretch blazer in S. Didn't fit me as well as I'd hoped. Got a flannel blazer in XS instead, and it pretty much fit the way I wanted it to. It's from the first collection though, dunno if measurements changed (probably not) EDIT: shoulders are almost slightly too small though, they're very close-fit as it is

    So I'm 6'2", 175 lbs. (skinny), and I like a slim-fit. I usually wear medium in shirts like Polo's custom-fit OCBDs. What am I going to be in Uniqlo? Is the fit different in +J or +J slim-fit?

    Also, maybe I'm blind but I'm not seeing the famous Uniqlo OCBD (this: http://shop.uniqlo.com/uk/goods/060522) on their US website. Do they not have it?

    And FINALLY: I'm usually a 31/34, how does the +J fit? True to size?

    I'd really appreciate the help-- I want to order some stuff but I have no clue how it all fits!

    Any good times to head to Uniqlo for sales?

    I want to do a NYC trip this summer and want to hit up Uniqlo.

    What are their sales usually like? (I'm just thinking of other retail places like BR/etc that regularly run 30-40% off and I don't want to be ripped off)

    Anyone tried their new chino shorts? Was thinking of getting some. Probably khaki and white.
    They are going for pretty cheaply.
