    Funny what she says about the sale sinking once the girlfriend wrinkles her nose. Sometimes I end up selling to the woman while the guy just stands there helplessly.
    Great stuff, this UNIS. Must check it out when I go to New York.


    Yeah. It's pretty easy to find, actually. Just off Broadway a few blocks on Elizabeth Street, on the east side. It's a pretty nice little store. Really airy, with a apple green on light cream interior. I imagine that Bloomingdales Soho carries the line as well.

    I actually really liked her raw jeans as well (this was before the raw jean trend) which were very straightforward, with minimal details and a flat dark indigo color. Not sure if those are still made.

    does anyone know if all their pants are tapered like the ones on their website? I'm sure the raw denim is, but now there is a pair of herringbone trousers on ebay that look pretty good as well.

    The khakis I picked up from Unis are really slim legged. Not tight but def a very slim fit through the hip and down to ankle.

    *took a look at the herringbone ones on ebay....they seem more relaxed thru the leg than my khakis. The herringbones are 8.5" wide across hem, mine are 7.5" wide, but the ebay ones are a 31 waist, mine are 30 (but still 1" is a big difference across the hem for 1" waist difference). Good BIN price tho, I would jump on those if they appeal to you at all

    checked out the store for the first time today, lots was on sale. Jeans and pants looked super slim. Had a kickass black coated military jacket @ 350 after sale. Also a slim black bomber style jacket with a zipout hood. Broke as hell, bought me some uniqlo instead...

    I am not fashion-literate enough to describe the line in relevant terms, but the design looked pretty solid and the pricepoint not all too bad. Did not scrutinize quality or country of origin. Good to know that this stuff goes on sale, and that some cooler items (like the military jacket) actually make it to the sale.

    Does anyone know how the Unis raw denim fits? I'm wondering if it is similar to APC (aka should I size down to a 30 if I normally wear a 31/32?).

    lol, good (and true) observation. I have known of quite a few Korean girls named Grace, esp.

    I must have met a million "Eunice Lee"s in my childhood...

    I think one of them is actually one of my friend's older sister. Oh god the confusion.

    sample sale on now. Copped some neat stuff

    Cream khakis + ridiculously soft herringbone tweed db military overcoat

    EDIT: I got the herringbone coat mentioned in the OP. It's a sample from fw2007, with no tagged size and a different inner label than usual. Kinda cool

    Can anyone vouch for the cut and/or quality of their shirts? How is the 'Felix' shirt cut?

    Frances May, in Portland, which is a store that probably exemplifies the typical Styleforum look, in spite of the absence of various Styleforum favorites (notably, Common Projects and Wings+Horns, and Margiela), carries Unis:

    http://www.francesmay.com/shop/

    It's notable that the store is in a gentrified part of the whitest city in America. My wife likes a lot of their stuff. I like individual pieces, but honestly, like to style my stuff with a little more of an edge. I can imagine that if I had ended up in the private sector, doing consulting work, or whatever, that I'd look like their models.

    Unis makes very nice clothes. The quality is typical Made in New York, which is to say that they do a good, but not stellar job (you need to go over the Pacific or the Atlantic for that).

    They sell most of their collection online. It's a great brand, really nice people. Been around for 9 years now. Almost everything, if not everything, is made in USA, so I'm not sure about that China business. At least I know all of their shirting and trousers are made in New York, USA. We have a feature on the brand coming in the next issue of Inventory, but their shop is definitely worth a visit. Their shirts, chinos and outwear is all very good. http://shop.unisnewyork.com/

    bumping this up. Nice sale going on at their web site. I just ordered the Jimmy Shirt in heather gray. The web site says the material is from Japan but it's made in the USA. I'll post my impressions when it comes in.
