UNIQLO has become a mainstay for casual fashion around the world. How do its prices compare internationally?
The Japanese clothing company UNIQLO has become internationally popular due to its reputation for comfort, style and affordable prices. Due to the brand’s ubiquitous nature, we were curious how much consumers around the world end up paying for UNIQLO clothes.
In this analysis, we compared the price of 10 UNIQLO clothing items by country in order to gauge how much prices differ globally.
Japan Has the Lowest Average Prices
Unsurprisingly, UNIQLO’s prices tend to be lowest in Japan, where the company was founded and is headquartered.
To make this determination, ValueChampion gathered price data for 5 common articles of women’s and men’s clothing available on the websites of several countries and regions, such as pants, shirts, hoodies and jackets.
ValueChampion then converted local currencies to U.S. dollars in order to make a straightforward comparison.
Which Countries Pay the Most for UNIQLO Clothing?
While Japanese customers clearly pay the least for UNIQLO goods, our analysis indicates that some countries pay significantly more for UNIQLO clothing than others.
On average, prices in the United States appear to be the highest among countries we sampled, being about 45% higher than in Japan.
China ranked the 2nd with 41.5%.
Meanwhile, prices appear to be most similar to Japan on UNIQLO’s Canadian website.
