I don't know where they purchase their low quality cotton from but its on par with H&M in terms of fabric quality and construction; you just pay more for the better design.


I pretty much agree with this. The price/quality ratio leaves much to be desired. I wouldn't buy anything from there again.

Come on guys you really expect this stuff to be good quality for mass produced shit you're purchasing at a mall for cheap?

^I don't know, dude. I bought 2 jackets from Zara about 2-3 years ago. Each was around $100. Looking back at it, I don't think the quality is worth the price at all. If they were priced more closely to H&M or even Gap, that would be OK.

The marketing strategy is genius though. Every time I walk by a Zara, I always see hipsters through the window. And they spend no money on advertisement at all.

Really? I usually see the clubin' dudes at Zara. I have one of those $100 Zara jackets and I'm afraid to walk out in the rain for the fear it'll melt right off me. I guess there's no point in talking about how good the quality is, it's more how they compare to other mall brands.

Fabrics actually weren't bad on the t-shirts, although a few of them were on the thin side. It was really the cuts and the details that didn't do it for me.

How is the quality of the trench coats?

post #52 of 62
Are you referring to this one?

If so, it was surprisingly well made in the store. Zara's probably the only store I even visit in the malls anymore.. best OTR fit and nice style. Just avoid the accessories, bags and shoes.

Yes I was referring to those trenches but in the tan colour. Thanks for your input. I might buy one since I can't afford a Burberry or Aquascutum.

I pick through some of their shit.

H&M had some decent chinos this year too. Hard to beat for $30

I would get a pair of their waxed black jeans if I could get info on the cut. The website doesn't say whether they are straight leg or tapered or what the deal is. Does anyone know?

I am personally looking at their trousers: Grey Marled I have black pants, trying to get for some grey but in a darker shade. Not sure if I need size.31 or 32.

I like how their stuff is modeled in general, just have to pick and choose through all the looks.

I find Zara's quality okay for the price - it's a step up from H&M, if not quite up to Uniqlo. Some stuff is better made than others but for cheap stuff it's okay.
post #58 of 62

Uniqlo quality better than Zara? 

 

That would be interesting, since Zara is 2x the price (at least here in Singapore).

I think Uniqlo quality is above Zara too

Over here I'd say on average Zara is around 50% more than Uniqlo, but the quality on the whole (odd pieces vary) is lower (but not H&M low). The advantage of Zara is that stores are fairly widely spread whilst Uniqlo only has a small Brick & Mortar presence.
