    If you search the thread there are some data points. A couple months ago someone said about 7" for a size 30 or 31.

    Anybody own the dry comfort blazer?
    How does it look irl, I find uniqlo stuff to look really cheap which I wouldnt mind for some stuff but not a blazer. I can not find a Barena in black so this might be my only option.

    I wouldnt consider the dry easy jacket to be any sort of lower cost replacement for barena

    Are there any reviews on Uniqlo blazers? How does it compare to Gap, BR, Jcrew and the other ubiquitous mall brands.

    Also, why is the all-cotton blazer and blended cotton blazer priced similar at $69.99. Wouldn't the all-cotton blazer offer better quality at the same price point?

    Yeah the linen shirts are pretty true to size. The biceps were ridiculously tight for me so I'll have to return.



    Not really. The materials just will have different qualities.

    Blend does not = shittier quality, just like 100% cotton or 100% wool doesn't mean something will be nice.

    Thanks for the inputs, much appreciated. Are uniqlo blazers comparable to Gap and BR, and to an extent, Jcrew as well.

    The crewneck cotton-cashmere I got is at least as thick as a T-shirt and the EF merino.



    Dry easy, wool blended, and even the 100% cotton textured blazer all look cheap to me. But, again, linen-cotton is good. You're in luck, they have it in black.

    So did I, hence my satisfaction with this season's linen-cotton, which is advertised as slim fit.

    I bought the linen/cotton blazer in navy today. Nice and casual, with some surprisingly nice detailing like pick stitching on the lapel. Nice with a shirt or a tee.

    And, at 6'2", it is actually long enough for me, which is more than I can say about most uniqlo blazers.

    Hmm, I'll have to reconsider the linen blazers then. We're the same height. I've never even looked at them closely because I figured they'd be way too short.

    Edit: Based on the measurements I'd have to get an XXXL to get a semi-long length (31"). If I fit to chest size (medium), I'd get a 28" length. Guess I'm not seeing it or the measurements are off.

    Medium.

    6'2" with a 39" chest, does me nicely.

    I like their linen blazers a lot as a very light, casual summer piece .

    But quality control is all over the place. Today I tried on some mediums in multiple colors. Some fit perfectly, others I could barely button.

    One thing that is consistent is the long sleeve length. Probably the only tailoring I would have to do on mine - the one that I could button.
