    Looking to buy some cashmere or wool sweaters...specifically this one listed for just $30 (red)....im wondering how the quality compares to nicer brands....Also want to buy a pair of slip ons that are basic and somewhat durable and comfortable...uniqlo has a model for $35..what do you guys think? Also does uniqlo run true to size? i am muscular so brands like Zara dont fit me well

    Uniqlo stuff is OK for what it is, but it's not any kind of "steal". You're not getting a $100 sweater for $30.

    When it comes to cashmere, you absolutely get what you pay for. You're much better off going with merino at that price level.

    Uniqlo runs smallish, and their cashmere is not a patch on the good stuff. I own it and wear it, but if you want longevity buy their lambswool.
