Is Uniqlo an acceptable starting point for building the foundations of an /fa/ wardrobe?

>> No.14878664

yes for your underwear

>> No.14878671

>>14878647
definitely
but stick to basics or use it to get a few items for your capsule wardrobe

>> No.14878773

this. uniqlo u tees are decent also

>> No.14878789

uniqlo makes the best basics for their price and it isn't even close

>> No.14878971

>>14878789
agreed. have a couple of their basic items. prefer it over other fast fashion brands.

have a pullover sweater and fleece top that are holding up nicely 2ish years later.

>> No.14879009

>>14878647
yup, you should also look for the collaborations they make like the U line with Lemaire, JW Anderson, Engineered Garments. It's basically a gateway brand to higher /fa/ism

I really like their stuff.
They have comfy socks and nice t-shirts.

>> No.14879107

>>14878647
if you are a poor 18yr old, yes.
if you are have any sort of disposable income I would not buy anything other than socks and underwear on Uniqlo. When building a warddrobe its better to focus on getting a few high quality pieces that all work together. I wish I learned that a lot earlier than I did.

A lot of times I’ll shop and see something I really like but know would not work with the majority of my clothes— I pass on it.

uniqlo pants are pretty good

the fucking socks develop holes really easily i find.
very annoying but at that price they're basically disposable so w/e

H&m lasted me long. Don't wear socks without shoes though and wash them regularly

Not anymore. The inseam on their slim chinos is low as a baggy.

I just got my first office job after being a bartender for years. Bought a week's worth of dress pants and shirts there to start, just so I wouldn't have to stress about it.

>> No.14879334

Pants/jacket from uniqlo is absolutely fine. Everyone else that days no is a retard

>> No.14879439

Where do I move on after I'm done with Uniqlo/gathering basics?

>> No.14879498

Rise on their chinos doesn't work that well for me. I mean it's okay on their fat cunt 36w which I am wearing now but last time I dropped down I noticed the rise on the smaller waist made for less comfortable pants.

You absolute fagot

I guess you should Hope you’ve developed enough of a personality to choose yourself dumbfuck

>> No.14880273

Your basics are the items you are likely to use the most. With this in mind, the cost per wear of these will be considerably lower than other items of your wardrobe. If you do the math, it would make sense to buy good quality basics that will be even more economical in the long run due to higher longevity and buying gimmicky pieces from brands like uniqlo and H&M.
So, no. It is not acceptable unless you literally cannot afford anything else in a long time span. The foundations of any building need to be solid as stone, not shitty chinese steel.

>> No.14880275

I'm looking for recommendations of higher quality stores. I'm tired of /fa/ggots saying "just get quality pieces lol" without actually giving a hint of whats good or not

>> No.14880314

>>14880275
Well, shit. If you actually told us what you actually want to buy, maybe we could answer. "basics" and "foundations" can mean 50 different pieces from 50 different stores. T-shirts? I buy mine from Isto. Shirts? Either Finamore or Eton. Jeans? Tela Genova or japanese selvedge. Underwear? Anything made out of 100% micromodal.

>> No.14880501

Underwear, knitwear, for outerwear mostly only their collaborations.

What higher end brand resonates with you? What do you like as a person that some designer and not some conglomerate puts out that speaks to you or atleast adjacent enough that you wouldn’t mind paying x amount on something that you understand and enjoy

Thing's I'd consider
>SOCKS
>comfy sweats (pile lined are my favorite for lounging but okay for a snack run too)
>some button ups
>some sweaters

Not as happy with:
>basic tees
The latter might be more me getting the wrong fit and getting away from v-necks now. The quality does seem as decent and solid as their other products.

>> No.14881940

>>14878647
Yeah. Unless you're some weird larper incel who only wears designer clothes and walks around looking like a goofball.
Uniqlo and weekday are pretty solid, fast fashion retailers. Just beware wacky clothes unless you're alpha enough to pull them off.

>> No.14882207

The Suprima Cotton Tees are still the best T-shirt I've ever found. The cut is still great even after the tragic 'Americanizing' of sizes.
