Looks like a bunch of stuff got restocked online: shirts, knits, tees, pants, and a few coats.
The size chart for these lists them as almost being true to measured size in the waist, unlike the more common vanity sizing. Did you find you had to take a different size than your normal Uniqlo sizing (about the same as J. Crew, BR, etc)? I ended up having to order it twice after I figured it out.
Dammit, now how do I expect to sell all that stuff I put on ebay???
Meanwhile, to New Yorkers, there was a ton of everything at the Soho store when I went in to return most of my buy from the opening. Despite it being cleaned out at the 34th St store Friday, there were quite a few pieces and sizes of everything here, and not a huge crowd (although they were only allowing a few people in at a tome in the Lemaire area).
Without leafing through the past 9 or so pages of this thread, what's the word on the bottoms for those able to purchase and try?
I tried the sweatpants on in a M. Quite liked them, but that's a size too big for me... will try and get the S on a restock.
As for the wool/cashmere flat front pants, I really liked the styling on these, but they are so warm they will never get worn in Australia... so alas had to give them a miss.
The relaxed/elasticated pants were long gone by the time I got there, hoping someone can tell me how thick they are compared to the other bottoms.
I'm so angry. My order tracking says it has been shipment confirmed, but I never received anything and I stayed at home all day waiting for it.
Anyone interested in MEN LEMAIRE WOOL BLENDED CASHMERE FLAT FRONT PANTS have both green and black in 82cm never been worn. Will let go for 80 shipped each.
Yeah generally afraid that the wool blend bottoms will be too stifling / hot for 30º weather.
Are the sweats as good as the A.Plokhov ones?
Probably looking at checking out the Flat front pants (3rd from left) which I have heard of cotton so much more bearable.
The wool/cashmere blend is definitely too hot for 30 degrees.
Never handled the Plokhov stuff so maybe someone else can chime in on that.
Yeah I'm hoping some other items from the Japanese release will be made available later in Australia. Didn't see those flat fronts in any size/color in store or online.
the stuff we get in Japan isnt the same as US and Australia?
didn't know that
As mentioned before, I'm willing to offer a proxy service since I live in Japan.
basically you buy it from the japanese uniqlo site (if you need help I can guide you), it gets sent to me, then i send it to you.
my fee is the cost in difference between the two versions
for example the trench coat in Japan is 14900 yen (about 125 USD)
thus you pay 125 for the coat, but my fee will be $44
i thought the sizes were the same in the US and Japan, but actually its not. its a case by case basis.
but in general its one size different. S in Japan is XS in US, M is S, etc.
Note that even for S = XS or M = S your sleeves will be a few cm or an inch shorter (maybe more). Asian Uniqlo is cut a bit differently. Pants will also be shorter, not that much of a problem if it comes in only one length. Take it from the person who learned that the hard (and a bit sad) way.
It's funny how most of the black and cream colored stuff are still available online In France... I would have put a bet on the black items being sold out within 24 hours, the "evrything black / allblack" look being trendy right now.. But no, besides the black woll/cashmere 3-button jacket and some sizes here and there (shirts, knits), almost everything else is still available...
I've ordered arount 1 AM on friday... the shawl collar coat in green, the pleated wool/cash trousers in black, the shawl collar wool blend jacket in green and the cardigan with the thumbhole in black... I kinda regret not getting the cinched-waist green trousers as well. Should geth the item tomorrow, will give a feedback
PS : all the discussion about the sizing got me stressed though, I took everything TTS, but I'm afraid to be disappointed, especially regarding the coat (might be too big TTS . . .)
^ quite a few items were sold out yesterday but there was a large online restock today. as far as color trend the dark green/olive colorway is pretty much the it color of this FW15 menswear season, so no surprise it sold out first in-store here in Paris (online demographic is a little different). anyways i'm really happy with my purchases, might go and pick up some more stuff tomorrow..
Welcome to Uniqlo shipping… where FedEx shipments disappear into thin air.
I didn't receive my order yet, so I haven't scoped them head-to-head to compare to the Plokhov's I have at home. But in comparing from memory the sweats I handled in store seemed very similar to the previous AP collab. I mean they looked nice so I ordered a pair!
