Inventive Product Packaging : T-Shirt Vending Machines

Every time I have seen a T-shirt for sale, its folded nicely in piles. What if you sold them differently? Perhaps insteas of in a store, through a vending machine?

"Newly opened UNIQLO UT in Tokyo’s Harajuku district an intriguing one indeed, as the combination of a nationally well-known brand and an especially novel new shop means its immediate success is guaranteed.

But as it only sells T-shirts, will the fact that they are served tucked up in tubes rather than fastidiously folded on shelves be enough to hold the attention of the capital’s consumers in the long term?" (From Tokyo Times via Random Good Stuff)

Do you like the idea? Is it a boom or a bust?
