    What size are you and what are your measurements? I cant decide between S or M. I could probably swing a S in the regular fit. Im at 39" chest and typically a 48 in most fashiony stuff. Thanks for your help!

    These jeans are pretty great, here.

    Had a chance to try them on in two sizes, 32 and 34. They both fit pretty comfortably. I tried the size 34 because the size 32 hugged my thighs too much. I really like the fabric composition where the 2% spandex really helps with the comfort, and the cotton being thinner for spring-summer season. Because of the fabric makeup, I think it helps with the drape around the ankle. The cut of the jeans also has a nice taper where even if you are wearing boots, the material allows the hem to drape well around the shaft of your shoe. You can really achieve a nice stack around the ankles. Again, it is the fabric composition IMO that makes this an achievable feat. IME depending on the weight (this jean being lighter), you end up with the hem of your pants getting caught on the shaft of your boot. It is not the case here. The hand is smooth rather than rigid.

    There is a good deal online right now, so, I placed an order for 10 pairs. In-store they do not seem to have odd sizes so better that I give the size 33 a try, too. They opened up so many Uniqlo stores around here it makes returns a breeze.

    The beige color is really nice. I received a few comments and questions before on a similar pair I had 2 years ago and this seasons is pretty close if not better. The former pair I had was stiffer and made up of what felt like a heavier fabric, which did get caught on my boots a lot:

    If you don't wear jeans a lot like myself but want a pair that is comfortable and looks nice, these jeans are a good filler for your closet. Edit: Or if you ever wanted to achieve that nice ankle stack.

    I'll also add since it has been recently discussed in the RFT regarding the rise of the pants, I thought these had a nice medium to even high rise depending on how you size them. Even a size 34 had a great looking stack at the ankles and was comfortable around the waist and seat. And because there is stretch in the jeans, you can sag them a little so it's not tight around your crotch.

    Probably my favorite thing about them is how they look worn over boots (I would assume would look good over high top sneakers). Next would be comfort around the waist and seat. If you have to pull your socks on/up a lot, there is enough stretch in the pants to roll up the hem without constricting your calves. If you are skeptical about the thinness, I try on the pants pretty vigorously (I hate store fitting rooms) and I did not feel like I was going to tear the seam (yes it did cross my mind when I was grabbing at the hem and yanking the pants off). I'll add that they are pretty easy to take on and off.

    So whats the difference between all the oxfords? There seems to be 3 versions on the site right now. Is there a consensus as to which are the best?

    when they do restocks, they often create a new product page. I'm guessing they have different manufacturers for most batches, and the profit maximizing solutions have variance too (they may use different fabric, be able to cheaply offer the inside neck detail due to machine setup, etc.) So they decide to split them to a new page. There are like a million different dry t-shirts on the site, for example.

    I see, that makes sense. So which are the better ones (fabric wise). The one with the piping along the inside of the neck or the newer ones, sans piping

    They'll do a new product page when they release a staple item for the new season.

    I posted a link to my favorite batch of oxfords a page back.

    If you're comparing two oxfords and one has a box pleat, that's the regular fit. The slim fit has no box pleat.

    And if you're looking at the oxfords they just released, keep in mind that they are short sleeved...it might not be apparent on first glance.

    I picked up the dry stretch full zip hoodie while I was in NYC about a month ago. I love it. I had to go up one size from what I normally wear but the fit is great. Now I want it in some other colours. I can't wait till they open the Uniqlo here in Toronto next year.

    How do the cotton cashmere and the linen blend sweaters compare to the EFM ones?

    Also, is there any major differences when it comes to the different Uniqlo stores in NYC?
