I like a few of their pieces, but fuck man, go somewhere else for things that actually matter. Simple basics is fine, but the jacket/coat i got have been back two times for repair. The second on the seam I asked them to look at the first time. Chick at the register has started to recognize me, I wouldn't fucking be here if your clothes didn't suck so much.
It's like a thrift sale with lots of multiples of things - you need to sniff around to find the good stuff because a lot of it is crap. I fucking love it. But a lot of the clothes are so poorly made that they look like they're disintegrating right off the hanger.
Look at the sales racks to see how the clothes stand up to wear and tear in the store (you'll learn a lot about how viscose or rayon wears on a garment, are the sleeves coming apart at the seams, etc). Look for real wool blends on coats.
Zara's clothes are made all over the world (China for basics, India for more intricate beading/sequins and lace etc.) and their origin info is right on the collar tag so you can check it fast. Look for things made in Portugal, Spain, and Morocco; they tend to be the better designs, too (factories are closer to their HQ in Spain; easier to ship, more up-to-the-minute designs)
Avoid Trafaluc and most non-leather accessories
If the cut feels wrong, it is. Consistency ain't their strong suit so look for the best-made one of that particular item.
so not so good quality? I enjoy shopping there because it has really nice jeans, chinos, and button shirts, also noticed stuff is mainly made in portugal, moroccos, turkey and what not so i'm not really sure on wether I should keep spending money here
>>10955985 They just don't take a lot of risks with MD. It's kind of a safey-safey, Banana Republic, Club Monaco brand with a bigger price tag and an Inditex association (which is either good or bad depending on how much you like Zara).
>>10956254 Eh, guess it's safe to buy from them. I'm new to /fa/ so I don't really know much about brands, but I guess I should lurk to find out about them and where can I buy online because physically there's simply no good stores
>>10955000 Ridiculously poor quality. The only clothes I've ever owned that have ever physically fallen apart or torn are from zara, purchased before I knew shit about clothes. Seams are flimsy as fuck, load bearing stitches are straight up sedged, stitched over, loose threads all over the place. Fabric quality is garbage. It's the price you pay for imitation fast fashion. Overpriced as fuck too. Designers are quick to switch styles to whatever's trending at the moment. Maybe other people have copped something decent from that brand, but all my experiences with them have been bad
>move to a town with a Zara a while ago and decide to check it out because my old rural farmer hole hometown left me ignorant of the brand's quality >bought some childrens knitwear from Zara because they fitted and were soft and cheap as fuck >browse women's wear too >loose threads, ripped knitwear, pull and snags everywhere >try it on to see if it looks better on >nothing fits right >price is 3x as much >stuck to buying childrens stuff ever since.
Better quality for the price, and as long as I avoid anything that looks childish no one is any the wiser. I've got a few plain coloured jumpers including turtlenecks, some black trousers and a pair of tweed trousers. I'm not going to complain.
I don't think I'd ever buy from their women's wear section though. Everything seems so flimsy for the price.
literally nothing out of the ordinary. I had a pair of shorts from Zara, did nothing unusual while wearing them, mostly as home clothes or summerwear, maybe went to the beach in them a couple times. By around the end of winter, when I was wearing it around the house, the back end just tore out completely, fabric ripped in half, exposing the back of my upper thigh. I did get it on sale though, so that lessened the blow a bit
