Uniqlo New Offerings
It’s July so companies are starting to release a few fall items. I stopped by Uniqlo and saw a few nice things.
Nice fabric. Great fall color. Only lined in the sleeves. No shoulder padding. Single vent. Pick stitching. The sleeves on the small and medium were a bit long for me. I’d have to have them shortened. Besides that, the fit is good. In general, this is a good deal for a cotton sport coat given the quality. If they go on sale, I might bite.
I have a three lambswool cardigans from Uniqlo. They’re nice, but too heavy sometimes in the spring or fall. These are at a similar price point, but thinner. I didn’t try one on, but hopefully they’re not too thin i.e. see through.
I’ve been looking for one of these for a while. The price point and fit is pretty good. The sleeves are too short and the collar is not as strong as I like. I bought one, but am not sure if I’ll keep it.
4) Down Vest
I have no idea why Uniqlo did not make a navy blue down vest last year. It’s my favorite color. They have one this year though. I have a down jacket from them, but the sleeves are too bulky sometime under sport coats. The vest will work better.
This Just In: Polo Ralph Lauren Denim Trousers
$12 @ eBay
I never wore a pair of jeans all four years of high school. I’m pretty sure my brother had a pair of these polo jeans, and they were the only pair I ever wanted to wear. Many, many, many years later I finally tracked down a pair in my size on eBay. I had them tapered and shortened, but my tailor didn’t make them nearly as short as I wanted. No matter, I like them this way. Double pleated, cuffed, and creased. Old man style.
I tried this on the other day and it is seriously legit. It has a nice slim cut to it. It is a bit snug in the shoulders, but not too much. I wish the collar was a cutaway, but this spread is about as wide as it gets for BR.
