Hit or miss: Uniqlo - 6/10

  • 170 Oxford Street

Uniqlo menswear AW14

Pros

When it comes to value for money Uniqlo is strong, with crew-neck, cable-knit cashmere-blend knits for £29.90 some of the best available for feel and quality, and also the cheapest. Lower-priced merino wool options for £25 come in both crew- and V-necks, while selvedge denim jeans are just £35. Shirting offers variety including £20 corduroy or flannel styles, which are nice and thick for winter and cheaper than the thin cotton styles elsewhere. Uniqlo won’t set the world on fire with directional designs but pleasingly, aside from a vast range of plain options, there are also prints including Aztec, tartan and gingham. Staff were friendly and busily steaming product, so it looked much less crumpled than elsewhere.

Cons

The store is difficult to navigate, with misleading signs to the menswear area that lead nowhere. Because so much is folded,
it can quickly become messy and it’s harder to find product like T-shirts seen on mannequins. Some prices are a little high for plainer pieces, such as an £89.90 pea coat that is no better quality than Burton’s cheaper alternative.
