I have one, seemed like many at the last gathering did.
I agree - I think Uniqlo has the edge. Uniqlo clothes are more varied and colourful. I like there selvedge jeans - they are a super bargain. They also do good puffer jackets. They have their classics, but it is an overall younger vibe.
Muji stuff is more conservative. Think grey, navy, black and beige. They are part clothes store and part stationary/luggage/other stuff store. So the range is a bit more limited. They are good for basics. Undies. T-shirts. They also make some very smart rain coats/trench coats.
Their sizing is very Japanese, so you may struggle, as I do, to find anything which will fit. None, of it is that exciting, but they are good quality products at very affordable prices. Both shops would do very well in Australia (if they address sizing).
Outside of Japan, I think that Uniqlo has some store in the States, but they both have pretty substantial stores in Hong Kong.

Shameless promotion (but hey I'm an affiliate so technically I'm paying for the privelage) I now have a tumblr for the company. It will be a mix of original content and some re-blogs I feel will be useful for readers/clients.
And in Singapore (in Uniqlo's case), which I hope to check out in about 6 weeks!
First, congrats, Jason! I like it!
Secondly, I see that thisfits has reblogged the latest post from one of our own.
Thirdly, I see the that another British shoemaker has paid tribute to a jazz great:
We had Alfred Sargent's tribute to Thelonius:
Now Edward Green's tribute to Miles:
I've been plundering the three stores in Malaysia on my last couple of trips out there.
That blue suede EG is marvellous
This one is also drool-worthy:
Yeah well, we were thinking of doing an SF black tie meet-up so would kind of be necessary.
I'd be a bit careful about organising a meetup just so you can wear black tie outfit. There are those who might make fun of that.
Anyway I'm of to Apollo Bay Music festival for 4 days - should I pack my dinner suit? Or would a plain blue business suit work? Pocket hankie? Double monks? How many ties?
Would be funnier than the usual get together of well dressed men all with polished shoes, pocket squares, knit ties and what not?
No socks needed...
You'd better dress up if you're going to see Barry Morgan and His Amazing Organ.
I saw him on Spicks and Specks some time ago and he was brilliant! Hope you have a good time and let us know how it went.
ah true true
I'm afraid the dress de jour is probably unkempt beard, blunnies, Rivers jeans, shirts out, shrunken woolly knit jumpers, - and thats not to even mention the men!
I shall report back on matters sartorial if youse want each day on my trusty, but expensive, iPad and courtesy of (spit) Telstra 3G (spit). Possibly even straight and sober.
