    Pretty good. I have all three colours.

    The gray one catches lint easily. Otherwise, good length and shoulder ratio (got mine in HK). Held up well to washing.

    I realise this has surely been asked before but a few searches of various degrees didn't show what I was looking for.
    I've never bought/seen unique before. How accurate are the online measurements? Esp for the +J.
    Looking at the wool tapered in a 34 and a 13"+ thigh looks perfectly slim for me, but I'm used to slim meaning like <12" and being unwearable. Any help would be appreciated, hoping measurements are pretty accurate.

    Hi all... this might be a noob question but ill ask anyway! I bought a couple of cableknits here in the UK and they are really annoying me at the moment. The hem seems to constantly slowly roll inwards and tuck in to the the jumper! Is there any tips to stop this from occurring other then me constantly pulling it down and being self conscious?

    Cheers

    Well shit, the wool taper J+ came in a 34 and they are dumb tight. Will return.
    I'm ordering a 35 right now but if anyone wants this pair of 34's let me know since they are out of stock now, otherwise I'm returning them on Monday.

    Nice markdowns on the remaining +j stuff. Picked up another pair of the tapered trousers.

    Should I go with my usual shirt size or go up one?

    i would go with 34 unless you have really swole thighs/calves. they're pretty slim but not as much so as the chinos i think
    im a 32 and this is TTS

    I don't know if this reissue is cut the same way as the original but I had to size down when they first came out so I ordered a size down.

    Hopefully they're exactly the same, the cut is great and my original ones have held up well.

    Hey so just to confirm - slim oxford size for the +J vest? I'm a M and and the oxford is slightly long but the fit is good throughout the body.

    Just adding some data points here...picked up a pair of slim/straight "raw" selvedge denim for 19.90 euros. I sized up 1 in the waist (usually 32x34) cause the top block was a little smaller than I thought it would be and I wasn't sure if they'd stretch. I plan on wearing for a couple of weeks then warm soaking if they seem a little stiff.

    Fabric is pretty thin -- I usually wear 14-16 oz Japanese denim -- I'd say these are 11-11.5 oz. Construction is spot on from what I can tell.

    Fit is actually pretty good, I wouldn't complain if the rise was .5 inch higher, but the calves and ankles are trim without being tight. I'm skeptical that they'll actually give decent fades and I have no idea if they're sanforized (I suspect so).

    But all in a good deal for a pair of beater denim. Like a lot of Uniqlo stuff I wonder what would happen if the company even made a Wallace & barnes type version (i.e. better fabrics and design, for 1.5 x the price).
