    I really doubt a store built on selling basics are worried about exclusivity. From what I've seen Uniqlo is everywhere in Japan and China. And from what I hear there's quite a few in Korea too.

    I'm thinking about getting someone to do a proxy. How much is shipping to Canada, or is it usually enough to make the whole process not worth it?

    Does anyone have any fit pics of a +J suit? I'm thinking it might be a good alternative as a poor college student

    I got it from randomkoreandude, I think shipping was about $15 or something for a jacket.

    Uniqlo use medium (or whatever) to size between 37-39 (or whatever), so sometimes some of their stuff tends to run a little tight! I find this with the J+ jackets! Couldn't buy one cos of this reason.

    gray flannel slim jacket with regular fit gray flannel trousers

    I have the navy peak lapel F/W 09 slim suit too but I doubt they let Jil to release something that crazy again on the suiting side.

    Yep, I can literally see a Uniqlo out of my room window. Uniqlo and (slight) exclusivity are a strictly US phenomenon.

    Not that hot. Just a bunch of shirts, blazers, and I think cropped pants. I'm too big for those blazers even in large. They're tiny [​IMG]

    Uniqlo in general looks to be going slimmer and slimmer these days.
