    Whats the consensus on uniqlo jeans? I was in macys and picked up a pair of levis which I always wear, but stumbled into uniqlo and got a nice linen BD for $20, then a pair of slim fit jeans for $50 and they hemmed them for free. Fvckin awesome.

    I thought it was agreed that the material keeps getting thinner/worse every season.

    I guess I am more or less wondering how the quality compares to the Levis I've been exclusively wearing for years. Also can anyone comment on which Levis fit is closest to Uniqlo's slim and regular fits?

    I feel like the regulars are fairly similar to the 505s, but I'm no expert on jeans.

    Can anybody comment in the cotton cashmere sweaters?

    Wish the linen BDs had a BD-collar as well.

    I've found Uniqlo's tees to fit very well if I size down. Anyone know if they hold up well after many washes?

    i prefer my skinny tapers to my 511's. the fabric on the 511's is better and more denim-like but the skinny's fit, stack, and sag better.

    I like them too but I have no use for that many linen shirts here in NJ.

    Anyone wash any of the extra fine cotton BDs yet? I am a 39-40 chest and got the medium and it fits perfectly. Worried about shrinking if I should size up.

    Granted, it's unlikely I keep all 7...

    You know, I cold wash and tumble dry low all my uniqlo bds (including the efc ones), and they have all shrunk a minor amount. They may have also stretched back out a little w/ wear too. I don't think they will shrink a whole size though

    Cool thanks. I'll stick with the medium then. Even if they did shrink at the end of the day it was only a $30 shirt so I cant complain too much.

    Seems like the linen shirts just restocked online.

    wish they'd offer the linens in the same slim fit as the printed chambray shirts

    I like the relaxed linen pants, but I'll have to size up. It's best for a 28-30 and I'm more of a 30-32.
