Lived through the storm, looking to the future
OK, who's got a friend in Japan that wants to pick me up a pair of Uniqlo jeans? They're getting US distribution this winter, but I want a pair from Japan before that. Then I'll be all, "Oh, you bought those in NYC. That's nice for you." when I see someone else with a pair.
Monseigneur Verigo says: "If you are serious, I may be able to help. How much money are we talking about?"
I answer: "Definitely serious. From what I can tell, Uniqlo is like the Gap of Japan, so stuff isn't that expensive. If I'm interpreting the pictures and numbers on the Japanese site correctly, the S-001 jeans in raw denim are 2990 Yen. That's $25.66 according to xe.com."
