yes from official site very lucky a medium
i really want to buy Uniqlo.. i cant find it in my hometown.. i think i only can buy it online ..
in Uk no longer available
Too bad. Some must be left at Paris Opera (I think), but I'm not willing to browse through the Underground/Tube just to verify.
The Djokovic Wimbledon line will be available in the 311 Oxford Street and Wimbledon stores. He's making an appearance at 311 on Tuesday evening next week.
I actually don't mind buying Novak's UNIQLO line (I think 2012 Wimbledon was great) but I hope they remove the big UNIQLO logo. UNIQLO is known for its minimalist design and it's not like UNIQLO's logo is something cool to sport.
And they are selling on Internet
The Uniqlo folks have started selling the gear on the net too.
Shirts for £30 - not very expensive and they should be commended for not taking advantage of our obsessions in this department. The prices for Wimbo 2013 not up yet but they are trying to shift some old stock at the moment.
What makes Nike's swoosh cool to sport? Plus I thought it was pretty badass of them to sign Adam Scott and stick him in a $20 polo.
Nike's swoosh is just a check mark so it's alright. UNIQLO's is a big red box with the words UNIQLO on it regardless whether the shirt is green, white, or navy blue. At least Nike changes the color of the logo or reduces its size if necessary. UNIQLO has to remove the 'UNIQLO' logo form the Novak clothes and simply use a small Djokovic logo instead.
But seriously I don't know why a lot of people here are going crazy for UNIQLO, buying things for twice to thrice the price on the bay. The fabric and the design is really comparable to those you can buy at K-Mart. The Novak french open polo costs around $60 and the polyester fabric is the cheap scratchy one. It's far from the $60 Nike polos where the fabric feels like cream in your hands. If you still haven't seen the Novak clothes in person I really suggest you just skip it.
I'd gladly replace the UNIQLO store a few blocks from here with a Champion, Russell or an Under-Armour store
I have the US open jacket at retail... and its good quality. It really fits my body well, and it doesn't restrain at all.
However, I tried on the polo and found it wasn't as good.
Unlike the swoosh, it got you bleating UNIQLO a lot. Which would probably be billed as successful branding.
Can't argue against the bit about the feel of the fabric though, but I'll take your word for it, I can't remember what the Dry EX polos feel like as the store local to me doesn't have them, only the slightly odd cotton/poly blend ones.
The Dry EX fabric feels like a thinner version of the UNIQLO's cotton/poly blend, without the cotton feel. If you scratch your nails in the fabric, your nails would cling a bit to the Dry EX fabric unlike Nike's poly clothes where you nails will run down smoothly.
Seems like uniqlo are taking some heat here and I don't blame y'all. I think their athletic gear used to have more value before all the endorsements. They had lower prices, more variety in design and fabric, and it wasn't always the somewhat scratchy shirts we have now. Oddly enough they do have some cooler smoother dry fabrics they use for their undergarments. Why they don't use that for the tennis stuff I have no clue.
I personally love the feel of the Uniqlo dry-ex shirts. Feels very comfortable, flat seems, and drys so quickly compared to my nike shirts. Its not smooth like UA shirts, but they definitely are not scratchy like Nike Legend shirts
Kinda like Berdych and his H&M clothing?
