Every season there’s a Uniqlo piece that tends to take the interwebz by storm. Last season it was the oxford and the vintage chino the season before that. This time it’s set to be their premium down coat.
Down coats are always a tricky affair; it’s very easy to end up channelling the Michellin Man. Uniqlo have got it just right with their deceptively cheap – £50 right now, £70 usually – down coat. There’s more than a whiff of Cabourn in the orange coat, but that’s no bad thing. (Uniqlo)
