Is Qlo still doing the $20 off $50?
post #10668 of 12692

I tried it a couple of days ago and got an error. Ended up copping a v-neck knit from Muji instead, they're half-off currently

Couldn't get the 20 off 50 to work the other day either.

lambswool is the most robust out of the 3 due to thickness

sick of every color being a different fucking size and slimness, this is why i have baller ass knitwear

 

Are you talking about the blended lambswool this season? How did the 20% nylon hold up?

 

I was pretty amazed by the lambswool last season. At the retail price of $30 they were already tremendous value. This season somehow Uniqlo thought they must make it even cheaper and bring in the nylon. I was completely turned off.

Lol at this line of thinking, that blends always = cheaping out / shittier quality. Nylon is generally added to help sweaters keep their shape over time. The old NDG sweaters I have are all 80/20 wool-nylon or thereabouts. Can't necessarily judge the quality of a knit by the %s.

Lol I hope that's true. What about piling though? Nylon adds durability but doesn't it disturb the wool yarn? Also does it feel itchier than pure lambswool? I have never actually bought a blended sweater.

Guess they really want us to get into their cashmere and merino.

Not all blends are created equal, just as not all wool is the same...

I bought a cashmere cardigan from them last year that was wafer thin. Not interested.

I'm not so sure pilling is the be all end all of quality in a knit. I Just don't know. I have a few fl knits that I love that pill a bit, and the wool is supposedly sourced firsthand from Bevarian shepherds or whatever. But I wear them a lot because they are stalwarts, so I don't mind if they pill. It kind of adds to their rustic feel I guess. On the other hand my sns stark has never pilled, like at all, and I wear that thing religiously. So I just don't know.

I guess what I'm trying to say is I don't get all fixated over a little pilling, but only after the thing has seen some use. And if it's a quality knit. I still wear a few uniqlo lambswool cardigans from two years ago that pill. But they fit right and have a decent weight to them. But his v neck lambswool I got a few weeks back was horrible. Like depressing. The blended kind we're talking about. It was super light and started to pill the first time I put it on. And the fit was like two sizes too big. I'm basically going to use it to clean my toilet.

Their knits are just hit or miss is all, hence why this thread is useful

was brought up a while ago. legit, but everything is in Asian sizing (1 full size down from US/EU, + a lot of things are cut shorter).

Does anyone know Uniqlo return address in the US? I don't remember seeing the Fedex label they usually send with the order and it's cheaper for me to use another shipping method anyway.
