Great Utility Wear
Member Name: nilo0901
Advantages: Good clothing range, great prices
Disadvantages: Things sell out quickly in popular sizes
Uniqlo is a clothing chain that originally started in Japan in the 80's but is now taking over our high streets with inexpensive fashion items.
I have a friend, we'll call him Mr F, who is a terrible follower of fashion, particularly those of the high street variety and rather thrifty too. Formerly a great fan of Topman (not my kind of shop) he has recently become infatuated with Uniqlo and has turned me onto it. Not being fashion conscious and one to wear ludicrously tight skinny jeans I was apprehensive, but I needn't have been. Yes, they sell these items but once passed these you can find some good quality, plain, simple clothing at great prices.
This chain is very good for utility wear and it is here that I award it good marks. If you are looking for a simple pair of trousers (£20ish), sweater (can be as low as £15) or polo shirt (£10) then this is the place to come. I have now bought many items here and have found them to be of excellent quality and good for everyday use. Colours and patterns are classic and plain and the fit is usually very good.
The stores I have been too have always been clean and well organised. It is often easy to find things and staff are on the whole helpful. I have found that they do tend to run out of certain items fast in popular sizes which can be frustrating but I suppose is testament to their popularity.
Summary: Good for tight pockets and simple tastes
