I haven't been to the London stores for a few years so I dunno what they're like now. But I don't recall been overly impressed by the experience back then so i never made an effort to go back. The uniqlo in Bangkok central world is hard to fault, it's just such a nice shopping experience, perfectly laid out, loads of decent clothes immaculately arranged. I just think if this shop was in Leeds, Manx, Birmingham etc I can't imagine it not succeeding. Miles better than all the other cookie cutter high street chains we have repeated in every city. As I live up north it's easy to forget about the brand, just as easy as it is to forget about the website.

it seems like every uniqlo in asia is set out with thought whilst the ones over here are just shit.

Totally agree bill. Would clean up in Leeds or Manchester.

Paris and NY stores are great, but always found the London ones too cramped and they're always an absolute inferno

I don't see this variance. Bluewater Uniqlo is fine. Every Uniqlo I've been in has a bit more open space than H&M topman etc.

Was going to post that there was a re-stock of kaws tee at regent street, if that's your kind of thing… Looks to be restocked on line too, so maybe thats not news?

Any sign of the Super100 blazer jacket in black in the shops?
Bit strange that it isn't on the website, but they do have the trousers. Don't imagine it would have sold out.

No idea. I recall a post here where someone said the online stocking system is different to the stores, so it may be worth give them a ring

websites got different stock to the stores, separate entity. separate stock levels.

as for the stock in the stores, the store manager makes orders based on their own/area managers judgment. basically they restock whichever's gonna make them the dough to impress the higher ups. which often ends up in the stores just getting random shit, 3 times a week, that's sold well. sometimes they order things to fit lay-outs on tables/shelves(so it looks good)

also, the manufacturing side of it is pretty odd too. they tend to make random amounts of stock. so one item will be just 5 pieces in-store and will never come back but others endless stock. a lot of the time, the good items are limited and never come back. but also there will be times where they'll restock an item months later when they thought they'd never get it back in(i find this is when someone in the store stockroom/warehouse finds a random box that got lost).

staff can stock check every store in london really easily so if you're wondering about certain stock just give any store a call and they'll be able to tell you everything. my honest advice would be to call see if they have it, if they don't ask for a supervisor and they should be able to tell you if/when they know it's coming back into stock. they can see like the next maybe 3 deliveries coming too.

new releases thurs and sun, sale markdowns wednesday, every week, all year round.

sorry for essay but that's about all there is, just for future reference.

Do the trousers have a silky sheen to them?

How do the slim fit chinos fit? Other slim fit trousers I've had from uniqlo haven't been particularly slim fit and have needed hemming though I'm 6 foot 2

Got a pair of them the other day. Not as much room in the thigh as I'd like or compared to other slim fits but overall they're a decent fit.

I've got a job,

My feet on my table and a Cuban cigar

But sometimes that just ain't enough
To keep a man like me interested
(Oh no)
No way
(Uh-uh)

No, I've gotta go out and have fun
At someone else's expense
(Oh yeah)
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

The tees are all on sale for $5.90 in NY, are there none available in the UK?
