    I was underwhelmed by this place when I went. After reading and hearing about, I had unrealistic hopes I guess. I liked the linen dress shirts they had but was too sick to feel like trying them on.

    Haha. I feel bad for people thinking they're going somewhere and getting super nice designer inspired pieces for cheap. It's just an alternative to jcrew/gap with similar stuff. Shit's cheap, some of the stuff is designed ok and fit ok. The store is fucking massive so people have a lot of options.

    The gilded age is in the little corner as you come into the store on the left side. The shipley is all over the first floor womens section.

    Opening ceremony is now on sale near the rear of the store on the upper floor. TONS of product as of last sunday when I went.

    I picked up the gilded age cotton blazer in khaki color and want to get it in navy but these collabs don't seem to be doing too well and they go on sale rather quick. I'll swing by in a few weeks and see what's going on.


    Whats the sizing like on the gilded age cotton blazers? I was thinking of phone-ordering one... I know they run smaller than regular sizes but I wondered if the medium would still be too big for me (36 chest) ?

    ^ Medium'll probably be fine. It's Japanese sizing, so medium is actually a regular Uniqlo small.

    Anyone been recently and know what the current promos are?

    Also, how often do they have promos for jeans? I was still in the city when the S-001 were at 2 for $50 and for some reason didn't buy.

    I got the same thing, I asked like the day after they came out. I ended up proxying the Zip Up because I need it for a trip

    How long should I expect to wait for a response these days? I called about a week ago and they haven't called back. (Story of my life, heh.)

    I really hope they are working on a US site to purchase from. I was thinking about the logistics of the reason why they do not but I don't know enough about their business. All I got to say is if they did have one I would solely buy Uniqlo for all my work clothes.

    ^ Yeah, but he could just call the stores and have the item shipped directly to his address. No sale taxes either.

    Anyone know how much Uniqlo NYC charges to ship domestically? I'm planning on buying about $100 worth of stuff in a couple weeks over the phone.

    ^ Depends on location and possibly weight, but usually around $10.

    Was anyone lucky enough to pick up a chambray shirt before they all sold out?
