That's just a filament style LED bulb, you can probably find a multipack from somewhere like screw fix for a fiver with a 3 year warranty.

Been thinking of making some myself. Actually, I already have a bunch of the bulbs and fitting and haven't finished my prototype :shifty:

:D Ta! Managed to nab it for a really good price including postage. Not 100% sure if I'll wear it, or give it away as a gift to someone who really likes the black version I wear.

£15 including postage. Nabbed it off eBay. I only found it by chance by sticking 'Uniqlo UT' (no other terms or filters at all) in search and sifting through the lot.

It is, aye. That's how much I like it! And yes, I will be trying it on. Unless it looks too small from the get go. Thankfully the person I have it mind for, if I do gift it, is female and so hopefully it'll fit her. (My current thinking is it'll be too big and so she may have to wear it as pyjamas :lol:)

Next planned purchase:

Love the colours; they're unlike anything else I've got. There's a tee in the same colour but I'm not keen on the print.

That'll be a pigment dye. Look for them.

In fact, I probably know who made that.

I had to look that up. Sooo because it sits on top of the fabric it's more likely to wear over time, but that can be a seen as a positive because vintage look is a trend. ...I don't follow trends but I'll be getting it anyway. (I'll just refrain from washing it all that often.)

It affects the reflectivity of the colour tone as well. They tend to be softer altogether have a different quality to direct dyed items. It's hard to explain without comparing them side by side.

Washing it inside out will help prevent the pigment migrating. But it looks different from day one.

I just compared it to a men's 'M' and they're almost identical except for the bottom part of the shirt being slightly shorter. Not tried it on yet - scared of stretching it :lol:

Bargains on those tops. I got some of their socks a while back and they've been going great - no tears, etc.

New UT lines in March and April:
