New Uniqlo Offerings
Burgundy Corduroy Sport Coat - I’ve been looking for a coat in this color for a while. The corduroy is a bonus.
Navy Cardigan - It’s a sport coat/cardigan hybrid. I wish there was a chest pocket, but I can deal.
Wool Blend Herringbone Pants - The fabric looks thick like flannel. They’re slim fit so I don’t think they’ll fit me, but I’ll give them a try.
Wool Felt Fedora - I bought a hat last winter. I ended up giving it to my wife, but I still haven’t given up. This looks interesting.
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.
Increase the peace.
Note: This would be much nicer, if they actually centered the pattern.
*The length looks too short and the button stance looks too high.
For $40, I like the construction on these pants. The red and yellow pairs are my favorites. The rise looks dangerously short though. Deal breaker.
