#1716 Money can’t buy you love, but it can buy you some sweet, sweet sweaters

It’s amazing what you can buy with $35 New Zealand dollars when you’re not in New Zealand. Back home it would get you (maybe) breakfast for two, half a tank of petrol, a third of a pair of Chuck Taylors or two tee shirts from AS Colour. At Uniqlo in Paris, I bought this white button-down oxford shirt and rusty-orange lambswool sweater combo (twinset?) for a grand total of $70 New Zealand dollars. And they’re both great quality and perfect fits! Uniqlo, Uniqlo, where everybody gets a bargain – and a money back guarantee!

I’m wearing a Crane Brothers blazer, Uniqlo sweater and oxford shirt, Simon Miller Jeans and Chuck Taylors.

These photos were taken in negative temperatures. That cold look on my face is real.

    The reason Uniqlo is so cheap and such high quality (I read this one time), is because they order so deeply in fewer styles. So, hypothetically speaking, H&M might bring out 1000 new styles every month, but Uniqlo might do 1000 and order 10 times as many units.

    Plus it’s made in China.Just like Katherine.
