    Have the contrast grey one. Maybe it was just because it was from Japan, but the body and arms fit extremely short even though I sized up to account for differences in US sizing. Hopefully it's different in this batch; the sweaters were pretty comfy.

    Do you guys take the same size in sweaters/cardigans as you do shirting?

    XS in shirts is 20.5 P2P but their cardigans are 18.1. Tighter to account for stretching?

    Same. Knits in general stretch nicely.

    What would be a better long term buy? Broadcloth plaid shirt or a flannel shirt?

    I've tried using the search function to no avail. I'm looking for Uniqlo sizing in Korea. I have a friend who's over there right now who can pick up a bunch of stuff for me, but I'm worried about the difference in sizing from the US & Korea. I usually wear a M for everything (BOO, Gant, etc). Should I size up? I have a pair of jeans I purchased while at the NY store (size 29), do the jeans fit TTS? Thanks to anyone who can help me out here!

    I'm actually in Korea atm and I bought a bunch of uniqlo stuff a week ago. I'm 5'10, 140lbs, and im a pretty skinny guy with broad shoulders. I fit just right with a size large, but I can also wear M although it gets a bit tight. For jeans, I usually wear 30-32 in Levi's and I bought a 31 skinny tapered from Uniqlo.

    Korea uniqlo's medium is chest 95 cm (aka 37 inches), large is chest 100 cm (aka chest 39 inches). Not unlike Japan, I heard.
