UNIQLO T-shirts, too good to believe ?
 
Hey, I found this Uniqulo t-shirts for $5.95 each. I can't believe it from such a high end clothing company. Is this true and anybody have bought and worn this before. Any reviews ?

Its got a fair bit of polyester in it and its machine wash cold so it may lose its shape, but it does look good and the price means there's nothing to lose.

I just can't believe the Price. Why is it so cheap ? This is a import just like Fila, Sergio tecchini and Ellesses which are much more expensive.:confused:

FYI Uniqlo is nowhere near a high end clothing company. Their clothing is very very mass produced, pricing wise it's maybe a bit more expensive than an h&m/forever21 but lower priced than a GAP or J crew. Uniqlo's thing is average material with excellent fit, and mass availability. Trust me I've been familiar with the brand for a very long time now.

Uniqlo is a Japanese casual wear designer, manufacturer and retailer, most of it stores are in Japan, I have not seen any tennis clothing yet.

As Nextman916 says above, Uniqlo is anything but a high end company. They're the Japanese H&M, if that.

They do have unbelievable deals - I bought a lot of casual stuff there since they opened in NY. They have been turning really high volume though, so you have to time the visits just right these days;)

There clothing is much better quality than you would expect at their prices. I am a huge fan of their dress shirts, oxford shirts and flannels, all of which rival brands like j-crew and banana republic in quality. Their down jackets are extremely light and fashionable. Their t-shirts are really light, soft and comfortable. Same story for their fleeces and sweaters.

Bartelby 12-23-2012 08:44 PM

So they wash well even if you don't use cold water?

SoBad 12-23-2012 08:51 PM

I have been wondering the same thing. I've been using hot for cotton whites, warm for cotton/acrylic colors, cold for linen shirts, and dry-clean for linen blazer. So far so good...

It's nothing more than a Japanese version of the Gap.....heck in some of the larger stores it's like you have Old Navy, Gap and J Crew (almost but not quite) all combined.
Also EVERYTHING is imported now....just check out the label on whatever you are wearing - bet its from Central America or just about anywhere in Asia (tons of stuff made in sweatshops in China).......you cannot compare Uniqlo with high end Italian designer sportswear (can't really call Fila nor ST high end anything now really - you can find the stuff at Target and WalMart or just about any large box stores).

Because Kei Nishikori and Novak wears it. they wouldn't endorse it unless it is good stuff and high end.
