Saw this on the “New Arrivals” page on Uniqlo’s U.S. website, which means (fingers crossed), it’s only a matter of time before it hits these shores.

Yes, shawl collar cardigans! Sure, it’s not practical in Manila – although it’s handy in air conditioned places – but I missed out on it the first time around (again, thinking of it’s impracticability), and regretted it ever since. Bottom-line, it’s nice to have it on standby, ’cause a) you never know when you’ll have a sudden trip abroad (and it’s oh-so-comfortable and stylish planewear); and b) it is a classic, some might say essential, menswear staple.

As I’ve examined in the past:
