A long-time reader emailed me with a question about Uniqlo’s Supima vs DRY undershirts.
He also confirmed the company’s recent San Francisco store opening:
Long time no talk. The blog is looking good I see.
I was reading your opinion on Uniqlo (they just opened one in the Bay Area).
What do you think about their Supima cotton shirts (2 pack) versus the $5 DRY shirt?
Uniqlo Supima vs DRY Undershirts
How you doin buddy! Good to hear from you.
Thanks for the confirmation on the uniqlo store opening.
I knew it was coming but didn’t check in to see about the progress.
I’ve tried several Uniqlo undershirts, including the Supima and DRY lines. Personally, I like the Supima line better – their overall value is really fantastic.
I will say that the Supima on the undershirts does not feel as soft as other Supima I’ve tried, but it’s hard to beat the value.
Also like the fact the offer the form fit with stretch, via the fine ribbing, without using spandex.
The DRY shirt is pretty good too, but I’m not as much of a fan as I am of their Supima and Heattech (Heattech undershirt review).
Generally speaking, the dry is just a cotton/poly jersey undershirt without a lot of forgiveness.
Mine fits pretty good, but if I recall correctly, it wears a hair bit on the warm side for me – plus – I generally like undershirts with a bit more forgiveness/stretch, even if they are a jersey undershirt.
Bear in mind, it’s been a while since I wore them.
I spent a good amount of time during the summer in either ribbed tank tops, or some super-light weight undershirt products I’m testing.
I did hear some pretty good things about Uniqlo’s AIRism undershirts, but I haven’t had the time to try them out yet.
Have you tried them out yet?
If so, what do you think of them?
If not, and you’re planning to buy some, can you email me back and let me know what you think?
Uniqlo’s San Francisco Store Opening
Lot’s of info on the web about Uniqlo’s new 29,000 square-foot, multi-level San Francisco Store located at 111 Powell Street, San Francisco, CA.
One thing that looks really interesting is Uniqlo Magic Mirror:
The global unveiling of UNIQLO’s “Magic Mirror” technology will occur at the San Francisco location.
Developed by the worlds leading printing company Dai Nippon Printing (DNP), this ‘virtual dressing room’ allows customers to use the Kinect color-changing engine and half-mirror touch panel technology to instantly switch between different color palettes of iconic UNIQLO clothing.
The exceptionally large bright color monitor brings to life the vivid product quality and details to make consumers feel like they are actually wearing the real product, while also matching color variation to best fit the style preferences of San Francisco’s diverse demographic technology that is Made for All.
