Went by the new NYC store today.
Didn't see any selvage.
Store is great retail theater. Main level is a giant box, 20 or 25 feet high. Storage = display as sweaters, for ex $70 cashmere in a promotion, are stacked on shelves to the ceiling. One side wall has 300 art t-shirts, all about $15. Some are pretty cool.
Men's on the 2nd floor is best around the fringes....wool caps and striped scarves, the colored solid t-shirts/socks/underwear. Denim is $40. Whenever Uniqlo gets into styling anything, it looks like the timid cousin of some Franco-Japanese preppy. Stripes and patterns in the $40 dress shirts, for ex, are mostly fine lines on white grounds. Fabric is 50s 1ply, the tags say. Jackets, too, are conservative without being much fun. Graphic and interior design is way above the design level of the merch.
On the opening day they were giving out this magalog, which is also in digital form on their USA site. But the hard copy has coupons in it
I'll still hit them up for the accessories and denim, but not much else. We'll see how they do.
