    Oh, that's nice. Looks like a perfect fit, except for the sleeves.


    Now I just need to find a way to bring it here. I can pay shipping, gas, anything. I could probably get a shirt or two from there while at it.

    BTW Jessy, I believe that jacket is on sale right now for 29.99. Not sure how long the sale lasts. For measurements, check the Uniqlo UK site, for each garment they have individual measurements.

    I really really like this one in navy. I don't know how their X-Small fits. I'm thinking it would be too long, but I might be wrong here. I'll contact them to see if they can provide measurements.


    Too bad I'm in Canada, I can't use Suddenlee (I'll still try to email them, just in case).


    Anyone could buy it and send it to me ? I don't mind paying $100+ fot a $60 blazer.

    That one is meant strictly as a casual blazer. There are no matching pants.

    I like thios blazer in Beige

    But I was wondering if they had matching pants. I tried calling customer support but they were no help. I was thinking of these pants in the beige

    I'd say the 38R in the JCrew Ludlow fit is slimmer, but it's been a while since I've been to Uniqlo.

    I just took my Uniqlo blazers into the tailor to get the sleeves shortened. She had never seen or heard of Uniqlo before, as I'm in Atlanta, so she started grilling me on them. She said that for the price (Tags were still on as I got another suit) the fit was excellent on me and more importantly the materials were impressive.


    If you are going to use the Tasmanian Slim Fit Jacket as a blazer then yes, I think the stance is a bit to high. However, if you are buying the matching pants and plan on using them as a suit then it's not too high at all. I feel like you can get away with a higher stance when wearing a suit.


    Honestly though, if you take a picture from waist level like alot of people do than alot of suits look like they have a high button stance. I've never had anyone say anything but "Man, where did you get that suit? It fits. What do you think of mine? Does mine suck?" or "How much did it cost you to get that tailored? It looks great."


    Also, the M does fit exactly like a 38R. I wear a 38R in the J Crew Ludlow fit and it's identical.

    I agree with zerostyle. My Uniqlo blazer is a medium and it fits like a 38R. The sleeves were about an inch too long. In comparison, I fit snugly in a 40R H&M blazer.

    Thanks for the details, Zero, very much appreciated.


    FWIW, I saw on Acute Style that he re-rolled one of the higher button stance jackets to a 3/2. It looks 'okay', I guess - I'd really like to see it buttoned. http://acutestyle.tumblr.com/post/21177773899

    ^ All that said, if you are a 36 in an H&M, I would go for the small in Uniqlo blazers.

    Vespa: Here are few data points from what I remember. I'm 5'9/160lbs.


    H&M Size 38: Fits me very well, maybe just a touch large in the chest


    Uniqlo Blazer Size Small: I'd probably say it fits, but it's borderline too tight. The small is probably equivalent to something like a 36-37R.


    Uniqlo Blazer Size Medium: Fits like a 38R. Chest was reasonable, but sleeves were rather long.


    Another thing to watch for: Every Uniqlo blazer I tried on had a VERY high button stance. This was the main reason I decided not to buy one.

    Sorry to revive this thread, but can anyone comment on how Uniqlo blazers fit versus H&M?


    I fit H&M 2-button blazers in 36 spot on, with no need for tailoring.

    On the Charcoal one yes I did. Not on the Navy. I guess I am just not used to slimmer fitting suits because the more I do image searches, JCREW's website for example, the more I see the separation of the bottom button. Also have heard that it gets better after dry cleaning and hanging for awhile. Something about being folded for awhile.

    ChrisW, how did your tailor deal with the button stitching?

    I'm definitely going to Uniqlo when visiting NYC.


    bere09 - Did you cut open the vent(s) in the back?
