    I do, but if you sweat, airism shirts start to smell bad. Heat tech, I wear as a base layer.

    Dude, so the "urban sweats" cargo sweats are like pretty awesome man. I can see why they sold at $49. At first I thought it was ridiculously expensive for a Uniqlo item. Sweats. But damn, after wearing them and nuking them in the laundry for a couple of weeks, things are great. Wish they had more in stock. Would buy full retail. I'm comparing them to W+H sweat pants and Robert Geller sweat pants...and they're way better for much cheaper...and I think it's well worth it compared to the regular sweats at about double the price. Damnit, pocket placements are perfect too.

    Duders, now I feel like I missed out on the long hoodie. Think those sold out even faster. Only comparable is nonnative ones for like $300 =/

    LSO. picked up two of the stretchy belts. $19 each. one is more casual, other a little more dressy. They are nice. One size fits all. They are stretchy. Makes it comfortable. I'm embarassed to say how much I've spent on similar belts from SF approved labels. These feel better made too. Damn. $19? Feels goo man.

    What exactly does "nuking them in the laundry" mean and what did it do to make them better? I got a pair as well and quite like them. I was a bit skeptical of the long hoodie when I ordered it but am really glad I did… have been enjoying it immensely. :nodding:

    Oh. I just like to wash and tumble dry my stuff like normal. You know. Wash cold, tumble dry low. I hate buying expensive stuff on here and then be all like, "hand wash only" man. I mean. Like, I spend 4 bills on this shirt and I now have to hand wash it?? WTF MAN? For that price, should be bullet proof, amirite?

    So yea. I just mean, it went through the wash no problem. Still feels good, didn't fall apart, get all warped or anything (some uniqlo stuff does).

    If it stays true black after 100 washes, I'll buy one.

    You have black or grey? Mine are black and my pet peeve is fuzz and shit on black stuff feels to me it makes it looks cheap so I'm always afraid to throw anything black in the wash (unless only by itself which is a waste of water here in CA). I guess I'm kind of a freak about keeping black clothing looking crispy.

    Mine are grey. Think the blacks sold out first. I had to stalk the website to get mine from returns. Harder now...they don't even have an urban sweats page anymore.

    Anyone have the thicker (non-ULD) down jacket? Comments on quality / warmth / sizing please?
    http://www.uniqlo.com/us/product/men-down-jacket-127898.html#58

    I'm a ~42 chest, 32 waist, 6'0, 180 lb. Mostly a M in J. Crew, sometimes L if too snug in shoulders.
    Uniqlo general size chart suggests a M or L, actual measurements suggest a S (sz S = 19.5" shoulder / 23.5" chest, sz M = 20" shoulder / 24.5" chest.

    Do these things really run that huge or is it just the ultra thick down? Never had to wear a size S before! Even more confusing, the model looks pretty slim and is 6'1, wearing a size M which should look gigantic on him but doesn't really.

    If I remember correctly, the bomber jacket sold out before the cargo sweats did because I bought the sweats with no problem when they first dropped.
    I do have a question tho, did your sweats shrink a lot? Thats the one thing I would really like to know.

    Some Japan posters noted there were a bunch of leftovers locally… but yeah in the US it's hit.

    Does Uniqlo just not make women's room shoes? They have room shoes listed in the women's loungewear section, but all of the product listings say men's.

    They shrunk a little bit, as with all the cotton stuff. But then it stretches out a little bit too.

    made two orders last week; the second order came yesterday, and the first order has yet to ship. so i'm just waiting on an out of stock notice.

    that +J vest was one of the things I got. It's a cool piece, and thick as promised, though it's thickness can make it hard to layer. I sized down 1, since it has a big p2p, but I might exchange it for my normal size so it'll fit over all my outerwear. I haven't decided. Oh, and the wool feels a little weird--thin, stretchy. I'm a little worried these snaps are too serious for the wool.
