Uniqlo + J’s Best Hits Get the Retro Treatment
According to The GQ Eye, Uniqlo's legendary +J collaboration with the OG designer, Jil Sander, is coming back this October at select Uniqlo locations across the country. The collab was known for creating some of the best fashion-forward clothing a guy could find, all while keeping the price point affordable. And when the collaboration sees a comeback on October 10, they'll be bringing it back as a "best of" series of the original, which ran from 2009 to 2011.
What we can remember from the collection that we hope to see resurrected are the nylon field jackets, puffer blazers, and premium dress shirts, all of which came in under $100. One piece we fondly remember was the suit, priced at a modest $250. It was one of the better fitting suits at the price point and got us through some hard times in college, all while still looking fuggin' fly. OH, did we mention that the suit could be purchased separately and the blazer cost $150 and the pants were $100? So fucking clutch while we were sipping on ramen and crushing Keystone Lights.
Looks like Uniqlo will work their magic again and keep those prices low, as the items in the collection will range from $39.90-$229.90.
