    Looking for the same waffle knit blazer that was posted here a while back. Chances are uniqlo doesn't have this anymore? Is there anything similar?

    Those are great but I don't think they've carried them since last year

    +1.

    I picked up a couple of pairs and they feel nice and are very comfy, but the fabric is light. It isn't the sort of thick, quite beefy chino fabric that will last for years and fade and get softer and softer after each wash, as Land's End chino shorts usually do. Instead, it's the sort of thinner cotton fabric that will probably be worn out after a season or so.

    Question about these leggings jeans...do they keep stretching in the waist? or does it always return to roughly the same size. Trying to figure out how to size them.

    this season's chino shorts have a nappy brushed cotton surface which feels really good to touch

    no complains, just that the cut is rather baggy

    oxford report: the thing about the slim-fit oxfords this season having a swooping out waist is true, though since I almost always tuck when I wear mine, it doesn't matter, and the swoop may actually help them stay tucked in. I wear last season's tucked in too, so I would never have noticed that this was a change. Also, the minor fit change since last season is not something I'm noticing when wearing. The fabric (on the white one) feels the same.

    agreed. i wonder if we are all talking about the same shorts here. although the pricing sounds like we are.
    my chino shorts have a nice weight to them (almost like my lighter epaulet chinos in short form), seems odd that they could be described as light / flimsy.
    i picked up 4 pairs. they felt a lot more substantial and comfortable to me than the linen shorts.
    although having said that, i have not washed them yet so they may deteriorate at that point.

    I hate that, bad to hear.

    I like Uniqlo okay and all but is there anything that is actually getting better? I might just buy some of the Uniqlo leggings then switch to COS from here out.

    Size up 1 if you don't plan on wearing them as an undershirt.

    --

    Anyone try the cotton/linen blend tshirts?

    Obviously a pre-existing condition, MoK.

    Thanks for all the information about the shorts, guys.

    The twill shorts are really dope. Great cut and pretty solid and only $15! I'm getting like 5. Haven't tried the chinos or linen though. I also really like the powder soft denim too probably won't last but they're essentially perfect in every other way.

    It's funny -- a couple of years into my 'clothing hobby' and over half my stuff is Uniqlo. This is for a good reason as I've been disappointed with only a small fraction of my purchases. At this point I only really have to only focus on getting cool footware and outwear in the oncoming years. It won't be hard to drop real coin on baller sneakers/boots and jackets when the majority of my wardrobe consists of $30-$60 dollar pieces.

    I sometimes wonder if the value of their stuff will decrease as they expand globally.

    Are the DRY SLIM FIT FLAT FRONT PANTS good for business/formal? or which ones would you recommend.
    How are uniqlo belts, need one for cheap.

    received the legging jeans, they are super comfy. Would be perfect if they had single sizes since I'm more of a 30 than a 31 but there's no way I could fit in a 28/29 so I'm gonna embrace the slight looseness. Do these shrink at all in the dryer?
