uniqlo logoAfter a cumulative year and a half in Korea, my wardrobe is primarily made up of UNIQLO stuff. It’s one of the two places that I actually buy clothes here (the other is Adidas), and on any given day, at least something on my body is made by the aforementioned clothier.

So when I heard that they were opening a UNIQLO store down the street from me (Kyungsung – in the CGV Building – Opening Friday April 29th 2011, I was giddy with anticipation of all the new crap I was going to buy. And by ‘crap’ I mean ‘clothes’.

If you’ve never shopped there, it’s fairly cheap, and they have a lot of basics. I’ve heard it called something like the “Japanese Gap,” which is actually a pretty close description. I think it’s a little cooler, though, and a little trendier. Picture stacks of colored polos and skinny jeans galore. They have dressier/smarter items too – slacks/jackets and button-ups for guys and girls. Pictures of Orlando Bloom are everywhere in the store, so yeah, that’s pretty awesome too.

The only problem might be with sizing. I’m a US size M or L, so at UNIQLO I’m a L or XL. If you’re a guy and are tall or broad, you might have a couple problems. They also do free tailoring in the store, apparently. So you can get your super-long-legged pants trimmed. I haven’t tried it myself, though; I usually go to one of the small tailors in my neighborhood.

In honor of the new opening, I just went ahead and put down all the Busan locations. Click on the ‘map’ tab on the top of our page, or just see the maps below. Check ‘em out! Oh, and I included the business hours in the map bubbles below.
