    Have it, like it. Hidden placket, button at the lapel, no chest pocket, functioning hidden cuff buttons. Half lined in cotton and half in cupro. Fits slim, TTS.

    Hey quick question, will the merino sweater shrink much under cold hand wash? Any experience?

    My Uniqlo merino sweaters are years old, so I don't know if the current range are the same, but I've hand-washed mine in cold water a heap of times and they've never shrunk.

    After I've washed them, I roll them up in a towel gently to squeeze out some of the water and then I lie them flat on a towel (usually on an outside table) to dry them.

    Can anyone please help with ultra light down sizing? The measurements seem pretty huge or are they misleading due to high armholes (size S = 22.25" p2p, size M = 23.5" p2p!)? I'm 6' with a 41-42 chest / 32-33 waist / athletic build, what size would be good for a slim fit (with maybe a thin sweater underneath or for layering underneath a shell)?

    I went TTS for the ULD vest. Fits well with layers.

    No you will definitely need some kind of jacket or parka over it. It was 20F on my way home this evening and my ULD with my TOJ fishtail and a scarf was perfect.

    How does the +J pants fit in a size 30; is the quality acceptable? I need some cheap decent pants for work.

    btw the +J vest thing was a cool looking piece but IMO there's a practicality problem...

    it's actually pretty big and chunky, meaning I think it'd actually be hard to use as a layering item because of the bulk, and if you're going to use it on it's own just over a sweater or something, then it'll work as a good looking fashion type thing but if it's cold enough to wear a sweater and a chunky vest, then it's probably cold enough for a jacket. I dunno, maybe it'd work to wear over a suit/sportscoat. Nice looking item but I couldn't figure out practically how I would have worn it and the ULD seems better as a thin warm layer IMO

    I've had a merino wool sweater for almost 2 years now, still holds up great and very comfortable - doesn't seem to be the general experience, though. It's also pretty thin in my experience.
