Knowing the reputation that Zara has with fast fashion, is everything on Zara bad or are there any decent clothing that's worth the price?
I've bought a grey knit there some time ago.
It holds up fairly well for the money spent.
My general opinion is that they Zara has interesting items, but the quality can be so-so. For it's money it's worth it though.
I'd be most concerned about moral issues since Zara basicly go hand-in-hand with child labour.
morally Uniqlo and H&M are better. both are making efforts to make their product lines more sustainable and feature some sort of charity they're doing.
but honestly you're better off saving up for a higher quality sustainable item of clothing, Fanmail or Everlane for example. Even just clothing that's more progressive and/or smaller production and with better fabric sourcing like Outlier or Isaora.
never ever I have a problem with shit I bought from there. well, maybe 1 in 20 items.
and sometimes they have real heat.
don't listen to these fa /fa/ggots. just try and see it yourself.
Other than basics they don't have anything relatively good. Their sweats are terrible quality, their jeans are pretty meh, jackets are usually horrid, shoes are almost as bad as h&m. I wouldn't cop from zara unless shit is on sale, and even then...
i bought this recently
it was $100 but it was too dope to pass up
a lot of the clothes is knock off of high end fashion but some of the materials are cheap.
like the same you find at H & M
they so have some nice clothes tho
They have nice stuff, I have a pretty sick dark blue suede bomber.
Looks black on the pic but it's just really dark blue.
saw a dude wearing this the other day. looked like he was late for his class at Hogwarts. It's hard to be aware of how you look in certain fits when all these photoshoots are filling your head with unrealistically cool imagery. I'd say that alone is the thing that separates the men from the fuccbois.
only thing ive bought from zara are basics
bought 2 luxary tees off their site, they drape really fucking nice, are tapered perfectly to my waist and chest, and are the right length. really fucking rare considering my proportions
got another relaxed fit tee, and while the materials are nice and its decently thick, the shoulder seams are a bit poorly manufactured
So basics only? What about there pants? how long do they last?
my friend actually made a joke about me being in Hogwarts/ Jedi but I have the confidence to wear it and pull it off.
Ive worn it once since I got it but my fit was dope. I was the sexiest in the crew no doubt.
I saw it at the store first and liked it a lot and found it and ordered it online after, It went well with what I was already wearing.
Everyone says Zara is so and so in these threads, but all three of the basic bitch items I bought from there were HM quality. Either I have shit luck, or you're better off just buying H and M m8
I was once a loyal zara customer because they had decent basics and occasionally I could grab a pair of jeans for $39 on sale.
My final Zara order was a knit v neck sweater. When I received it in the mail, there were no tags attached to it, the neckline was completely frayed and the sleeves were damaged so I sent it back and marked the label as "DAMAGED." A few days later I get a email stating that they cannot return the item because it looks worn and there are no tags.
After calling them and explaining them that I received the item in damaged condition (and the fact that I'd been a frequent and loyal customer for a year or so), they told me that they cannot accept worn items and that they'd have to mail it back to me. I wish I could show you how badly damaged this piece of shit was, but I never gave them permission to ship it back.
Now whenever I got to the mall near my house, I always go into Zara and destroy the necklines on their sweaters in the dressing rooms. It's justifiable homicide.
Worth it on clearance, consignment, eBay, or if you're really poor, thrift. Acceptable basics. Many medium and some small-size items are appropriate to people above 6' tall (pretty much why I check there).
Not worth it otherwise.
apparently in Europe and canada zara is cents on the dollar compared to what they charge here
i linked a $390 dior homme jacket, zara knock off was $450 here in the states
if you changed your location to germany it was like $95ish like 80 euro at the time
Even if you do find something, it'll be overpriced and ultimately not worth it. I got burnt once by buying a windbreaker from there and the material is terrible, flimsy and tears in seconds. Had to patch it up several times in a year, the zipper held on well though even though it's usually the first thing that goes in my experience.

>being this upset over one fucked up item
I'm betting you're one of those people who thinks the same employees work at every Golden Corral restaurant in the US. Don't give up on the whole company because of one bad apple.
Eastern-europoor here, zara is a godsend, basically the only store with slim or skinny cuts with a somewhat up-to-date look.
Basic jeans or solid color pants are 50$ here, the designer ripoffs are around 75$, same for knitwear and sometimes you can cop leather jackets for 200ish $. Also they were like the only store with more fitted cuts on blazers and button downs until like 1-2 years ago.
Honestly, that's me in the pic you're replying to, and I would be happy with them if I'd gotten them a size smaller. They're ridiculous, but I wanted some pants that stand out.
Maroon is the only color I can find to go with them, and everything else you wear has to be light on the zippers or you will look like the Gimp.
I bought some printed-all-over t-shirts a while back. The color didn't fade at all in the wash so i was p happy with the purchase. Even so they were 20eur so not that cheap. I also got a pullover with a kind of structured pattern which looks nice, but the material feels a bit frail.
When they do linen shirts and jackets in the summer, they're actually pretty nice and surprisingly decent quality especially for zara items.
A lot of the stuff is really really bad quality, like even worse than primark in that the seams and actual materials are very poor and rip and tear.
I dunno about you but i was very disappointed in the stitching in the seams for my tshirt. the threads were a bundled mess near the shoulders. i guess in hindsight the no refunds was a dead give away.
Idk why this is surprising do you guys go through tornadoes in your clothes? None of my clothes have fallen apart no matter the store. The only time I stop wearing a piece is ONLY when it outgrows me. A lot of you are just autistic idk
