They're opening a much larger store in Soho this fall. The orig store and the placeholder store over the summer (they were between leases) were small and only stocked basics. I hope more of the fun stuff comes to NYC soon.

Would probably need to use celga (www.celga.com), bid-service (www.bid-service.jp), or a similar service. Unless these items show up in the US stores anytime soon.

Uniqlo is all over the map in terms of quality. I have a couple pairs of Uniqlo jeans that are pretty decent, a couple of Uniqlo shirts that are absolute crap, and another Uniqlo shirt that is, again, pretty decent.

I think of them as kind of being comparable to Target in terms of quality and price, and probably disdain by clothing snobs, at least in Japan.

If the coat is half as good as the jeans, it's a great deal. I wouldn't wear it, but I kind of like it.

I popped into Uniqlo on Regent street in London this past weekend looking for a new pair of their straight leg one washes. Looks like their fit has changed since the last pair I picked up. Dont think I like it. They did have a new slim cut which looked appealing, but only had it in a black.

But while leaving, I noticed that they had some polos for only 6.99 (Pounds) 2 different fits. Tired them for the hell of it and found one that is great!!! Slim, just below belt level, fairly short sleeves, etc... Picked up a few for layering, slackin, etc... Wearing one now. Quite like it

I went to the Broadway store yesterday and bought a dark grey Henley ($15) which fits me perfectly, so I'm going back today to buy a couple others in different colors. I also bought 4 pairs of socks for $10, they had a lot, all different colors. And a bridle leather wallet which I really like, I think that was about $15 too. I was surprised the clothes seem pretty nice, I can't wait till they move into a bigger place and get more stuff, very cramped in there right now.

AMEN! UNIQLO socks are one of my favorite items in my wardrobe. 30 colors or something, £1.99 a pair. I went in last week and bought eight pairs of the pretty colored ones.

While living in Tokyo, I bought some Uniqlo undershirts and they're great, as well. Soft, thick (relative to most other undershirts) fabric and pretty good construction, too.
