edit: ok… I did forget a couple of the linen shirts might be good. Polos, printed tees, striped shirts both long and short are just straight up goofy.
For me, I think its the location of the pocket for many of them.
Sure, it's what makes Lemaire Lemaire, but since its a collaboration with Uniqlo, its now being marketed to a different group of people who might find the location too unorthodox.
Secondly, I've a feeling it won't sell out as fast, simply because it's the second time around. When Michael Bastion did a collab with Uniqlo, it was really popular and people lined up for it. He kept coming back and people (at least in Japan), got used to it, and things lasted longer as people now think (well this year's so so, lets wait and see what next year's collab will bring).
There were a ton of MB stuff in the bargain bin shortly thereafter.
