Uniqlo Fold Up Coat


This is my puffy fold up coat from Uniqlo. It fold up to a tiny bag about the size of a pack-a-mac with the added advantage of being warm as well as vaguely waterproof. It has been one of my best purchases. I got it a couple of months ago from the Uniqlo in Westfield for the bargain price of £19. It's last seasons print but honestly, I don't really care. It's part of Uniqlo's winter range although I think they should have it for the unpredictable British summertime. You never know when its suddenly going to be freezing. Although I haven't had much use for it lately, it's pretty good if you are going out in the day and coming home after it's gotten dark and the temperature has dropped.

I've wanted one of these coats from Uniqlo for ages, but I never wanted to get one because £70 for something that I want for sheer novelty value is a lot to spend. I always associate this kind of thing with 'fun summer adventures' and think 'if only I buy this, then I'll have all sorts of fun!', and it never happens. Last time, I got a pack a mac, it ended up being super useful. As part of my three week career as a chugger.

The other thing that always appealed to me about it, is how soft and smooth it is. I actually look like a bit of weirdo when I'm wearing it, walking about stroking my own arms. I was just never sure if I could pull off the look. It's not a particularly girly coat and it kinda reminds me of the puffa jackets I had when I was a kid.
