    They look the same to me.


    Better for sure. For a more accurate comparison against a company such as Zara, Uniqlo still is better. Some items may give off a distinctly cheap feel, but most are pretty well made for the pricepoint. And given the base jean price of $20 at Uniqlo vs. $30-40 for trash at Zara, Uniqlo is way better.

    I found the OCBD had a bit of poofiness in the back. Fabric was nice, though the club monaco one had a better slim fit

    I asked this over on sufu but I guess I can ask here too. Did the no cord corduroy shirts get produced last fall/winter? Hoping to kop some this coming fall.

    It's funny how H&M and Uniqlo are opposites when it comes to guys/girls clothes. Uniqlo is awful for girls but has some decent things for guys; H&M is great for girls and bad for guys.

    one is a notch lapel, and the other is peak (and the fabric looks to be a wool flannel weight)

    If anyone wants any information on anything to do with Uniqlo, ask me.

    I work at the Flagship store on Oxford Street in London - have seen some previews of the new +J FW 2011 line up too.

    the "no wale" shirts this fall, yes or no? Any interesting new +J accessories for the last collection or just cashmere scarves and belts like always? Will the men have a similar jumper to the woman's +J turtleneck with the slit in the sides?

    thanks.

    We've had a few promo shots of the outerwear, mainly the ones you've posted (I wasn't aware these were circulating online yet). Majority of it appears to be wool outerwear, there's gonna be an awesome down nylon gilet that is a bit similar to the SS11 contrast pocket gilet. I've seen it in a khaki so far. Wine and Khaki colours are gonna be some of the key tones for the collection. There's also going to be a slim fit 2 button charcoal flannel suit (with either tapered or flat front trousers), and a navy pinstripe flannel suit too. We've only received the one shot of the military parka you're interested in so I'm not yet sure if it's going to be available in other colours; I'll have another look at the campaign information tomorrow in more detail and get back to you on that one.



    The no wale corduroy shirts are definitely better quality this year. We had a company magazine circulating around work the other week that had an interview with Tadashi Yanai (CEO) where he basically said that last year Uniqlo lost its way a little and tried to follow fashion rather than quality which is what the brand is all about. The product range this season is MUCH better quality and we're using the same suppliers and manufacturers that we used to use when I started a few years ago. I've seen a shot of a dark gray cashmere scarf in the +J FW2011 preview - not sure if its pure or blended right now though. Dress belts are largely similar to last year, and not PU coated leather like some of the mainline Uniqlo dress belts. Not seen the knitwear yet but should probably have more information quite soon.
