    it's uniqlo--this isn't top tier stuff, but for the money, it's more than passable.

    I find nothing interesting at Uniqlo aside from the basics I need for work re: socks and dress shirts

    Even for whatever $$ price, it is not worth wasting your money IMO unless they serve one purpose and that is a filler. Otherwise, I rather shop elsewhere and spend the extra money.

    I don't touch fleece or whatever poly blend crap is the makeup. Would not feel nice against skin. I mean if you want something soft and warm just stick with the merino or cashmere. One detail they have this year for the merino wool cardigan is the matching placket that I thought was a nice detail. It stands out a little more than the merino wool as it is probably polyester/nylon. It has a sheen compared to the matte of the merino wool hand.

    JilSander: I only pick up the "Easy Care" dress, spread collar shirts. Size small fits me nice after I add back darts. I do not like the button downs at all, or the point collars. It seems spread collars are more rare now but managed to pickup two great ones. And of course some extra socks.

    edit:
    Also, the easy care spread collar shirts are great and easy to launder, and steam press

    edit2:
    I almost thought Uniqlo had a lower button point jacket until I went up close and realize I was deceived Someone had buttoned the 2nd button in lieu of the first. I rebuttoned the top and unbuttoned the 2nd afterwards :lol:

    dude, you're basically making my point...you see value in the basics that you can use (as does everyone). you like some items, and not others. the end.

    no need to spew 1000 worthless words about this shit

    you know what i;ve noticed is that since you started posting supergo you always take a defensive stand against everyone.

    can you shut the fuck up. keep dressing in your lame basics if you think uniqlo is worth your money.

    you come off as a bitch. bitch

    dude, you're shitting on uniqlo in the uniqlo thread...if you've got something constructive to add, that's one thing, but you're just acting like some kind of pretentious twat.

    irony is the guy acting like a bitch calling me a bitch.

    I strongly disagree.

    Some stuff is way over priced. For example their broadcloth shirts ($29.90). They are made out of paper. They are worth $14.

    Same applies to most of their stuff. I will say their hoodies, sweatshirts when it's on sale is a good deal though.

    I never tried the chambray, but the oxford shirts are great for the price and compare favorably to more expensive ones. Like others have said before, I felt Uniqlo has gone down hill since they started expanding. I tried on the jeans a year ago and they were good for the price along with the socks but that was about it besides the oxfords.

    I have a single item from when they did the +J collaboration (shawl neck cardigan) and it was by far the best item from them I have seen/felt from them. I wish I had gotten a lot more of it as the quality and fit of those pieces were good enough for people on here to mesh into their work and everyday wardrobes. The undercover collaboration wasn't nearly as good and the 3 pieces I got from it, I now just wear for gym and outdoor usage.

    ^ Oxfords are great at their price point ($30). They need to restock the colorways, though (e.g. navy, olive, etc.).

    I think the chambrays are paper-thin as well. They're just interesting for the prints.

    Good beater fleece. Nice for wearing home from the gym when sweaty in the winter, doing random crab that may get you dirty.

    Probably the same I don't know. I didn't bother checking them out.



    Not sure how the H&M shirt is but many of them feel very cheap. The Uniqlo premium tees are very nice for the price. They are on sale now at stores for $5.90



    I saw the same ones but with the printed dots on them. Very very nice. Nice and thick and pretty attractive. I think I will cop the wine.

    any word on sizing for the flannels?

    I've got a L hoodie that fits slim but works, assuming I want a similar fit am I likely to be good with the L? also, a L in a vneck sweater

    I wear their XS slim OCBD. I picked up a couple of the flannels and the fit felt slightly looser than the slim OCBDs, but slimmer than the regular fit OCBDs. Length is slightly shorter than the OCBDs.
