    I got a solid navy linen last year and a white and light blue this season. Both size Medium. Made the mistake of waiting last year and they sold out in like 2 weeks. The new ones seem slightly smaller in the shoulders and chest, but still comfortable/wearable. All other aspects seem the same.

    Anyone have anything to say about the cotton linen short sleeve shirts? The plaid ones. Some people are saying they run large in the shoulders so I'm wondering if I should size down or stick with an L.

    Tried on the linen shirts and I would take the same size as slim fit oxfords. Fits a little looser overall than the oxford.

    IME they fit way looser, and too long. Maybe hot wash+dry could've helped but at that price I'd rather get more OBCDs which fit me perfect

    But who wants a perfectly fitting linen shirt? Let loose.

    Related: my Uniqlo shirts have gotten progressively larger the past 18 months (without me getting larger). Went from medium slim-->medium regular-->large slim-->large regular. Feels so much better to loosen up.

    eh these were just too big in a Tommy Bahama kind of way (and sizing down didn't work). Just not my thing, no worries

    We're talking about linen shirts here, no need to look like sausage casing in the scorching heat.

    Will they ever make shorts with an inseam less than 9+ inches? Will there ever be slim fit linen shirts?

    I'm not not sure who Uniqlo think they are selling to in the US.

    Yea. I got that cracked linen OL shirt and got the wrong size. Girlfriend was making fun of me saying I looked like I'm about to get on my yatch.

    you guys are nuts... tight linen is the worst. i wear xs usually and sized s in linen shirt because 1) summer = breezy and 2) if it shrinks i don't want to be left with a linen straightjacket.
