    Anyone know how the U Bombers fit compared to the regular line Uniqlo Nylon bombers?

    I actually got a burgundy and olive. I wasn't sure about sizing so I got one color in M and one in L. From the styling photos, it looks a bit short. So, we'll see. Maybe the L will have that oversize thang and look good, but maybe not. I'm usually a straight up M in Uniqlo. This could be a trading situation.

    I thought the burg looked pretty fresh. Will wear with rolled Levis and D Martens for that Kingston '68 suedehead look. (Need cool hair like Rais).

    I was going to go with the burgundy and the matching jeans, but in the end went with the olive with matching cotton chinos and button up shirt. I'll see how I like the quality might still get a red one, only the XL has sold out in the bombers here in Aus, probably because it's coming into summer soon.

    I've been wearing the lambswool sweaters for 3 years now. I wear them over my black label button down shirts when its cold in Chicago. Like every day. I have a stack of them, including some from 3 years ago and last year. One was washed inadvertently by my dry cleaner and hence has shrunk, but the others have held up well, and the ones from last year are perfect.

    Haven't ordered this years model yet so I cannot comment on that. I have a stack of them in every color, and what I can say unequivocally is they are all in perfectly wearable condition, most have held their shape, and almost zero to zero pilling. I do dry-clean every 3 wears or so. Can't be beat for like 30 bucks. But can't wear with just a tee, that's for sure.

    Same here. Eight years and still going strong with only the slightest hole in the back of my cardigan in the same fabric. You can't even see the hole unless you put it up in the light.

    Tried an MA-1 (navy) from the U line here in Toronto since they had it about a week ago when the store opened. The fit is almost like the Alpha Industries one, so pretty classic. Shiny thick nylon and lined so mid-weight. Definitely traditional fit so slightly cropped and big arms and body. The regular line MA-1 has the added pocket, is a thinner material, and more like a slim modern fit with MA-1 styling (but not fit). Also, the regular MA-1 is about $50-60 and the U line one is about $90-100.

    I'm fairly petite and don't go in for the fashion look so I'm going with the regular MA-1 not the U line version.

    The wool pleated trousers felt pretty solid. It feels like a thick cotton chino to me. It's suitable for a California winter, but not anything colder than that.

    I would go TTS. I tried on most of the outerwear pieces and everything was TTS for me.

    Damn the U women's MA-1 is sold out in XS and S already. Hope they restock it.

    Is it me or everything on the U line more relaxed than slim fitted? The pants, shirts and jackets look slightly oversized. I guess that's the trend for the new season

    I ordered one of the grey oxfords. I need more miscellaneous office wear.
    As a Lemaire fanboy I still find it hard to buy this stuff, I don't know how you do it @gettoasty and @malcb33
