Stores similar to Zara but better quality

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Hey guys I'm new here and to fashion in general. I was wondering if there were any stores similar to Zara but were better quality? Specifically button up shirts I really like how Zara's fit and their designs like with their printed shirts, but they'll probably tear in a month. Max price range will be 150 but will probably consider 200 if it's exactly what I'm looking for. Any suggestions appreciated.

Massimo Dutti. But hold your horses for a bit; given what you've budgeted you could certainly buy something better (both OTR and MTM) from any of the many fine sellers (and forum sponsors) here at SF. You ought to check them out.

hmm massimo dutti has some really cool stuff thanks. and I'll definitely check them out but do they have shirts that similar to zara's? Because it's always been hard to find something that fits me well and zara's were as about close to a perfect fit I could find and with cool patterns. It'd be perfect if it wasn't for the bad quality.

I've tried quite a few items that are 'SF-approved' looking for better quality yet most stuff at Zara fits me better... sigh.

I don't own anything made by Zara, but have been in the store often enough with women who can't get enough of the brand. Compared to MD I found the quality of Zara's textiles to be lower, the construction inferior, and the style to be a bit more forward. You may know that both brands are owned by Inditex, so the sizing may be similar. MD's slim fit is quite good on me, and if I purchase a regular-fit shirt I get it darted. HE Mango has an "Asian fit" (I live in Asia) that usually fits well, albeit a bit tighter than MD, on me too. Keep in mind that with an MTM shirt you should find an even better fit, provided you do the measurements correctly. You already have a template with the Zara shirts you presently own so you could measure one of those and make adjustments such a longer/short arm, tighter/looser cuff, etc. as you see fit. As for "cool patterns"... with MTM you ought to be able to chose from a greater variety of fabrics than any high street retailer could ever match. And of course you'll have more choices in cuff and collar styles too. Just a thought.

Yea I'm definitely going to try out MD and HE Mango I really like their shirts and since they're not bad quality like zara's it's what I'm lookin for so thank you. Yea I figured I'd eventually just end up with an MTM but I wanted to see how far I could get with OTR as well. Any suggestions for MTM?

Would be cool to find another store with that good fit for slim ppl
So far I have only owned m65 jacket from Zara but it fits like no other jacket I had so far
and also it was my go to jacket for 5years and shows very little signs of wear, I think I paid
100$ for it, really paid off. Shirts fit well there, but quality is awful, some are not even full cotton confused.gif
I think their casual jackets are of okay quality, judging from mine and others i saw.
