Uniqlo apparel in US?
 
Any idea where I can find Djokovic's or Niskori's tennis apparel? It doesn't have to be their model, but generic Uniqlo tennis shirts will do.. For some reason I'm having trouble finding them...

I live in SF btw.. and it doesn't look the newly opened store carry it yet..

FWIW I lived in Japan and the clothes are junk, not worth the trouble

iyudhi 01-13-2013 07:46 PM

really? what I've heard is that they were actually pretty good..

I was actually in Japan 2 weeks ago and none of the stores carried them... I just showed the photos from my phone, and the cust rep told me that they're 'sold out' (they don't speak english.. but I thought that's what they were saying)

where did you get yours if I may ask?

I lived there 09-10 and they had a store in my town outside Tokyo, I got a couple of their "active" shirts and found them to be junk. Just my opinion though. I found their clothes in general to be very cheaply made, similar to an old navy.

Search the threads, it's been discussed, they aren't selling their clothes, and they weren't shipping them when they sold some of their clothes at the NYC store during the US Open.

There is no tennis apparels at NYC stores.
It was one time event for US open.

Seems like they are not interested in selling tennis apparel at this point.

finally checked them out at the flagship store in NYC.

they only had XLs and up left of the range, but I wasn't impressed at all by the quality. looked and felt comparable to Target/Walmart house brand quality.

not that adidas and Nike are much better in the quality department these days, but at least they feel a bit nicer.

The jokers at uniqlo r messing this up 7 months and still no global release

iyudhi 01-22-2013 01:19 AM

any chance you can help me pick 1 up? I'm very curious... XL is my size... would appreciate it if you can do it :)

Why the hell does a company spend the kind of money it takes to sponsor the world #1 tennis player then not even have a reasonable way for people to buy their products ?!?!?!

Perhaps they are just laundering heroin money :)

Their goal is to sell as many clothes as possible - not just tennis.

I bet everyone who goes into the store looking for tennis stuff walks out with $100 worth of other stuff.

getting excited over Uniqlo is like someone in Japan getting excited over Old Navy. Looks like their marketing propaganda worked on you

iyudhi 01-28-2013 05:50 PM

I can understand that some of you don't like Uniqlo.. but what's up with the demeaning comments?

Look, I don't like Old Navy as much as the next guy.. But I happen to like Uniqlo.. Their ultra light down jacket has helped me surviving winter without the weight.. and as an avid traveller, I also appreciate that it doesn't take too much space..

Also, I like Nike tennis shirts, but can't stand Adidas.. does that make me a bad guy?

I'm not asking for opinions on the quality of the shirts.. I just want to know where to get them in US (which some people have responded, and very much appreciated). That's it..

A perfect example of why Nike and probably most companies could care less if they make good quality stuff or not, people will buy it either way, so they will continue to raise the price.

Works the same way with everything (most of the things) in life. The new 3-series BMW is the step down from the previous generation, enthusiasts hate them, ordinary people think it looks prettier. Accord handles on par with it now. They jacked up the prices and will set a new sales record...

I'd suggest that you need more experience with motor vehicles before offering such blanket statements.
