Just bought black/white/grey in crew and v neck and can't tell the difference between these and my last lot last year.

I suppose the proof is in the washing so we'll see

Fit is good as per. Arm openings hug my modest biceps nicely.

Can't comment on delivery as did click & collect but I'm sure they have a delivery option that would get to you by Friday. Maybe not the free option though.

There a code for free delivery atm or do you just mean the £3.95 delivery?

Ordered a few bits recently. Here are my thoughts:

Twill shorts
Got these in 'Navy' and 'Dark Green'. One of the best fitting pairs of shorts I've had. Ideal for everyday wear. Quality is fine. Prefer these to my OL shorts and at £12.90 a pair, can't complain at all. I got the Medium and I'm a 32 inch waist. I wouldn't say these are slim fitting but certainly 'tailored'.

Dry Pique Polo Shirt
Picked up a few colours in this style. Really had no intention of keeping as I can never find a polo that I like the fit of. These are ideal. I'd say true to size. I'm 5,9, 180lbs - the medium is form fitting but not painted on. I could wear the large for a more relaxed fit. Hugs the arms well and sits mid-bicep; not too long, not too short. Material is quite crisp in texture but fairly breathable. Think I paid about £13 or so each. Really can't complain here.

Mens Pleated Relaxed Trousers
Got these in Navy. Size medium. These fit slightly bigger in the waist than the shorts. I'd need them take in ever so slightly to fit me perfectly but with them being a relatively relaxed style, I'll survive with just using a belt. I wouldn't have bought these at full price but being as I paid under £10, they'll do for a beater pair. Quality is fine.

Having only really had a few of the Oxfords before, I'm pretty impressed with my purchases.

Why doesn't Uniqlo expand to the rest of the the UK? Seems like it's content with a handful of stores in London etc..

I'm Thailand at the moment and some of the huge Uniqlo stores are great, can't help but think every major UK city should have a Uniqlo store. Yea you can order online but their website is shit.

There used to be outlets in some of the major cities around the UK but they closed down back in 2003.

Agents have been appointed to dispose of underperforming Uniqlo stores that are failing to meet sales and profits targets.

FPD Savills has been chosen to offload 10 Uniqlo stores in the Midlands and Northwest. Michael Peddar & Co is handling the disposal of eight stores the Japanese fashion retailer has in the Southeast.

Uniqlo is keeping five profitable stores in Richmond, Wimbledon and Uxbridge, as well as its central London flagships in Knightsbridge and Regent Street.

Two 930 sq m out-of-town stores, plus four smaller units are to go at Staines, Romford, Chester, Walsall, Eccles and Liverpool. The 12-strong portfolio of in-town stores includes units in Brighton and Watford in the Southeast, Merry Hill and Solihull in the Midlands and Leicester and Manchester in the North.

FPD Savills associate director Ross Campbell said other fashion retailers, such as Next, H&M and Zara, are likely to show interest in the stores.

'They are all prominent stores in good locations,' he said.

It was a peculiar business model back when they expanded, taking small units and having a very focused stock in a variety of colours, well before UT, collabs and denim. I seem to remember it was a lot like American Apparel. Both MUJI and more recently AA have succumbed to a similar fate in Manchester (AA for other obvious reasons).

Unfortunately, I can't see one in Manchester for many years even if they do decide to expand. Only the Urban Outfitters, Hugo Boss and Topshop stores would have the suitable amount of floorspace and each of them have long term leases. I can guarantee however that few people here, certainly those who I've worked with over the years, even know the brand exists.
