^^i don't blame you!
I forgot about the Undercover collection
I think I tend to avert my eyes since I'm in Boston and I'd have to come to NYC for Uniqlo so it was (for the most part) inaccessible.

Too bad (or maybe good for me :p) that the Undercover collection isn't online.
I don't think i can resist checking out the online offerings...
I'll look, but I won't buy... I hope

i usually end up buying gifts at uniqlo for stocking stuffer/gift items (ie. the heattech socks and thermals for my dad, cashmere etc)
:p

i think you should consider it as a gift source!

There has been a line in front of the Uniqlo store in SF ever since it opened, I just can't.

I know they are not all there for Undercover, either.

i doubt anybody is there for undercover, those collections were bombs.

there are promotions for the launch of the new ecommerce in the states...Men and women's cashmere is $20 to $50 off....:p

i thought that undercover was sort of a bomb as well...
but the stuff looks very different in store than in the ads...
the ads were cute with very very lovely bug costumes...
but the clothes couldn't really be seen...and i didnt really even care...
i had forgotten about it, just like chrissy...

but since i was there anyway, i took a look
a lot of stuff was sold out actually...
it's funny--- some stuff sold out completely and other stuff is just sitting there...
i only got a couple of things, but i am really really happy with my buys...
there was a bunch of men's stuff that i actually liked better than the womens...
(but that's typical for me.....)

the quality of the sweaters and wool items didn't seem to be as high quality as the +J stuff but the prices were also lower...

anyway - the website says they are going to put the number nine stuff online 'soon'...

hmm...i am liking all the fleece they have right now...
well- not ALL the fleece...
but i like the idea of fleece when it's cold...

i got a pair of blk knit pants when i was in japan that are lined with fleece...
they are like sweats, with a drawstring, but without the banded ankles...
i was thinking they would be cute rolled up with booties because you will see the fleece lining...

so when i got back to nyc i went to the store here to check if there was more cute stuff...
but - they do NOT have the same stuff...
...

very annoying~!
i don't know why i'm surprised...
but i really thought it would be very much the same since it seems that uniqlo is so basic...
but, apparently this is not the case...
so then i checked the japanese site and sure enough...
many more good choices in styles and colours...

...
*grumble grumble grumble*

Ha, softgrey, yesterday a girl showed up at work... she was adorable-looking and was wearing the prettiest shaggy jacket I've seen ..they always have something I don't like, but not this one! (cream-colored, waist length, a little boxy but not too much, lovely pockets, soft-looking)... I couldn't resist and asked her where she found it and she said [super cute Japanese accent/humble thing] "Uniqlo".. it reminded me of this post.

And of course I dumbly asked her if she got it in San Francisco, being the closest, and she said Japan. sighs.

I remember a friend used to drag me once or twice a week to the one in Soho, and I'd die seeing life pass me by as he tried on the same plain sweater in like 8 similar colors for h.o.u.r.s. I'd just sit there checking out the [gay] guys (main reason he wanted to go there all the time I guess )... I learned to dread that store but you've all been making it sound exciting/necessary lately (and I'll definitely order a good winter supply).
