Anyone here ever purchase clothes from AllSaints? I like the way some of their apparel looks and it is one of the few brands within my budget (along the lines of JCrew, Gap, BR, etc.). However, can anyone speak on the quality or fit of their clothing.

i think their fit is slimmer than the other companies you mentioned, definitely a lot more hipster... quality... made in China. Wouldn't really meet SF standards.

I have a cotton sweater and a cardigan from AllSaints. The fit is pretty legit, really slim through the arms especially. I haven't really worn them enough to speak to their quality, but my impression is that they aren't a good value at the retail prices but when they're on sale (which they always seem to be on the website) it's worth it.

this has been discussd ad nauseam, but the fit is generally slim, and the quality is poor to average. about the same as gap/br/ any other mall brand. on sale it's fine for filling in wardrobe holes or whatever, but don't expect any of it to last through heavy wear.

If you have the chance, stop by the store in SoHo.

I've tried on their stuff; the fits are great. I can't say the same about the quality, especially at that price point.

I got a all saints leather jacket as a gift. shitty quality... got rips in the leather after two weeks of average use...lame. Those jackets have a serious case of "looks great in a photo...less so in person" I got caught in snow with it and it became permanently discolored which leads me to believe its been heavily dyed (beyond the normal tanning).
after the experience with that jacket....I vowed to *never* wear cheap leather ever again.

So All-Saints leather jackets aren't worth the price... Hmmm I def want a leather jacket and there were some AS on sales for close to $300. Is it worth it at that price?

Also, anyone know where I can get some of their accessories? Like necklaces?

it all looks ok on their web page but in person it's just total joke. And their shirts have the weirdest cuts I've ever seen. Slim sleeves, slim waist, well fitting in the shoulders but low armholes so any movement where my hand goes up more than 45 degrees is just impossible and absolutelly uncomfortable.

Wouldn't buy anything from them even on sale, some shirts and boots I tried didn't last longer than a month, and I don't exactly thrash my stuff. I'd much rather pay double the price for something that actually lasts.

A couple things to add: AllSaints has giant end-of-season sales, like in the range of 60-70% off - I would wait for those. On discount, some of their basics might be worthwhile, because they have some of that drapey/moody stuff you can't find anywhere else. I have a pair of AllSaints boots, resoled with a vibram sole so that they last, and they fulfill a function well.

Quality is pretty much H&M level, prices aren't. Fit is cut with teenage boys in mind - fine if you're relatively narrow in the shoulder and slim in the body. Okayish at final sale prices.

I don't know, I bought 3-4 buttondowns from them last spring when they had their 60% off sale, and they've been holding up fine - especially a chambray that's about 2x as thick as, say, GAP's, triple-stitched, etc. Definitely not bad on discount, and some of their details are nice.

its definitely not all H&M level quality, but certain items are more likely to not hold up as well. That's the nature of all fast fashion stuff, though. The whole idea behind this type of stuff is that you keep buying seasonally. so don't expect to keep it for years and such.
