Sorry, I’m in Chicago and haven’t tried any Uniqlo stuff. I’m guessing others here though could chime in with some knowledge.
FWIW, Wooster’s interview with GQ not too long ago mentioned he thought their cashmere sweaters were a good value at $99.

I don’t know about the cashmere, but I have a merino wool sweater vest from 2-3 years ago that has aged terribly.
I think 2-3 years is probably about how long you can expect something from a fast-fashion retailer to last. I have an H&M wool sweatervest that I received as a gift that lasted about as long.
they recently had a grand opening special where they were actually down to 59.
at 99 or their 59 into price…alot can be said on the fit which for me was a bit boxy but still it’s real cashmere (to what point, i don’t know) but i do say colors galore !!
Markdowns to $59? I really don’t want to think too much about what their “real” cost of production is on those things then.
