    I got a couple of the chambray casual shirts, and they're a couple inches too long to wear untucked.

    Would washing it hot water shrink it up too much? Instructions say cold wash...

    Not sure I want to tailor the length, would be too expensive?

    even a hot wash ain't going to do a whole lot of shrinking. Like maybe a cm if you're 'lucky'. Either tuck 'em in or hem them. I'm on the shorter side so I hem and they usually charge about $15 give or take. Depends if there's a middle placket or gussets etc. Or find a friend / mother with a sewing machine since it's a pretty simple job but tailors will always overcharge because they want to make a minimum on any operation.

    i bought the camel chesterfield and returned it. the material is okay i guess, although it isn't particularly warm or camel colored for that matter. i'd say it's a couple shades darker than what the website images portray.

    i'm 5'9 185lbs ordered a large and that was too big. went in store and tried on a small which was fine if i never intended on buttoning it or wearing anything besides a t shirt underneath.

    So the stretch skinny tapered are better fabric than the regular $49 skinny tapered they have now? Is the material rigid so that it stacks well too? Need a new pair, my old skinny tapered are too small now (they are 98% cotton/2% spandex).

    I've generally found their coats and other outers to be lacking in warmth.
    I'm starting to conclude that their winter outerwear is not something one should buy. Havent tried their J plus though, I don't think they have one out yet?

    Can you return items bought online to a Uniqlo store? Or do you have to ship them back?

    dudes what button down dress shirt would fit me best? the last time i bought a shirt at Uniqlo was about 2+ years ago. it is a size "large" with a button down collar and fits great but i can't recall if i had it tailored or not.

    anyway, i am 5'11, 195lbs. 42" chest, 16.5" neck, 35" sleeve.

    will anything fit me decent OTR?

    Are the current wool suit jacket/pants on the US site still pretty good? Or are there better alternatives in the price range?

    The reviews say no pouch, which sounds awful. That said, bikini briefs are nice and I'm wearing them more and more. Best underwear to wear if you do anything athletic IMO.

    Awful indeed. I tried the Supima boxer briefs but they are too warm and too thick. So far I find the best underwear to be Airism.



    They are too warm for my tastes, too thick. I sweat too much in them. They should make them lighter and add cuffs to the sleeves.
