When the store on Oxford Street first opened, their cashmere sweaters feelt soooo soft, but now a few months later I went bagain to purchase some, and they just don't have the softness to them some of the navy sweaters were actually really harsh and just felt like normal cotton.

I wonder if they have given in on quality in the other batches..

I feel really stupid now for saying all these things about elictricity but it's just what everyone's been saying to me since for ever.
I agree that maybe it is cashmere but it's certainly inferior quality. I bought a pair of cashmere gloves from them first, which were really soft and nice for 15 pounds but than this sh.t happened if I don't even know anymore. Maybe the good quality cashmere was to lure costumers in??? I don't know.

You can test if it is synthetic or not by pulling some fuzz or strings off of it, and lighting them on fire. (Carefully of course) Cashmere and wool will burn to ash, synthetic will melt and leave a hard plasticy residue.

i went there to buy skinny jeans on my last trip to NYC,
it was the last night, and i was in a hurry, so i didn't get to look at everything they had, but i liked, i liked.

better than H & M, IMOP.
can't wait to go back and see if they carry a short black trench, i think i saw one on my way out, but i was in a hurry.

Funny, the exact same thing happened to me on my most recent NYC trip.

Anyways, I miss this store. How I wish I could wonder about it in again. I bought a massive number of graphic tees as gifts, some cashmere items that were on sale, various knit tops for myself, a hoodie, and some other stuff.

much better than H&M quality-wise, I think. I bought a bunch of their graphic tees too and they're so comfy! I wanted to try on jeans, but the fitting room lines were sooooooooo long.

i live in nyc and for whatever reason have never ventured into uniqlo. do they have good summer stuff?

i'm not a fan of AA (for personal reasons i won't get into here). uniqlo seems like a classier option.

Is it just me or does the Uniqlo in Soho not have that much stuff in it? It's hard to imagine that the streaming pictures of clothing items shown on the website are really all stocked there? I feel like the stores in London were enormous, this one not so much.

I actually just went a few weeks ago for the first time, and though I like some of the jeans didnt find much else there.
