STYLE ABROAD ROUND-UP PT 2. UNIQLO HONG KONG
Sort of a tepid half answer to J.Crew and its dominance over the menswear basics market, Uniqlo is a Japanese fashion conglomerate often hailed as ‘H & M+’ (higher quality basics, better-if fewer-designer collabs) available widely throughout Japan, China and Korea.
Unlike its single store location in NYC, all Uniqlos throughout HK and China provide a next-day complimentary alteration service (for its already wide range of fits and body specific garments). Recommended menswear essentials (for a price that would make many of their competitors top themselves) include the ubiquitous OCBD (co-signed by menswear blogger veterans), their price-point formidable cargo pants (that come in a variety of both regular and perfect fit) and a range of colourful hosiery that comes in thick/thin gauge.
For students, young professionals and devotees of Henry Thoreau you’ll be hard pressed to find a basics shop that has you covered as well as Uniqlo at such a competitive price!
