God, hasn't this thread died yet? There was a huge argument a few months back about loving/hating Jack Wills.
Some people like it, some people don't. End of! Not everyone likes every article of clothing or particular style, but that doesn't make one blind bit of difference to anything. Someone isn't of a lower class because they don't like Jack Wills, or can't afford it. Their prices are astronomical, which some people aren't willing to pay and some people are.
I've never heard of Jack Wills before. Just checked out the clothing from its website and it looks like an overpriced version of Abercrombie and Fitch or even Primark, so it's really bad.
As for the price, well it's not too expensive, but definitely not worth paying because it looks crap the clothing quality is non-existent. This type of clothing does not even come close to that of bigger designers, so if this is what people with money spend it on, then imo, it's a huge waste.

welcome to the real world.
people will resent you for anything, especially if you have a decent accent and come from a nice backrgound, seemingly like this Sleepy_person!
1) so you think that if you a posh you are automatically clever and classy people will always use apostrophes. you are so deluded its unreal
2) she never boasted of being "posh and from such an elite background", its just you using stereotypes..
She doesn’t think she’s posh? ‘Salcombe’ is in her screen name…
Fair enough she hasn’t actually said ‘I consider myself upper class’ but I’d say you’re the deluded one if you can’t see the image she is trying to paint of herself.
Now, as for me resenting people with a decent accent and a nice background.. I happen to have both those things thank you very much, unfortunately this has led to many confusing me with people like little Miss Salcome here. Understandably I’m annoyed when I seem to have come across somebody who embodies everything people seem to already assume I am.
I used to love Jack Wills, their designs were so my thing. I’m staying well clear of the giant printed JW logos now because it’s so negatively associated with people like that.
i'd wear something from jack willis if i was nice and in the sales maybe. what i'm saying is that if something was a good price and i liked it i wouldn't not buy it because of the brand name. but mostly their stuff is too expensive for me, i can get the same style cheaper elsewhere if i want it.
i do not like the look i see on all the girls in south ken and chelsea though - track suit bottoms tucked into uggs with unwashed hair and jack willis clothes - meh, take away the unwashed hair, track suit bottoms and uggs... then maybe, but that's over half the look, haha!
I think Jack Wills stuff can be ok, provided you avoid the stuff with the huge logos. It's one of the only places that does casual well-fitting shirts for girls, and the price in the sale is usually less than Topshop. I think it's silly not to buy something you like just because of someone else's conception of the brand.
I do agree that the girls in matching rowing hoodies with messy hair and uggs look stupid though. Those hoodies with JW Rowing on them just look like PE kit.
OKAY. THIS REALLLY GETS TO ME.
Does it realllllly matter whether people wear Jack Wills or not?
Does it reallllly affect your life to the point where you are completely against Jack Wills and those who wear it?!
Fine, you seem the same types of people wearing the hoodies and then a denim mini with 'real' uggs. Or, the Jack Wills fleece bottoms with 'real' uggs.
It's clothing. And it looks fine. If people wear it because they've seen ten others wearing the same thing the day before, it is THEIR agenda.
I personally wouldn't buy Jack Wills because I think it's overpriced and would rather spend money elsewhere. Then again, I got a Jack Wills hoodie for christmas and I'm hardly not going to wear it because people think I'm trying to prove a point that I'm a 'wannabe rah.'
I'm not a rah. I don't wear chanel earrings and a string of pearls around my neck that my grandmother gave me. Even if I was, would I have offended you in anyway???
Fair enough, those who give you dirty looks because your NOT wearing Jack Wills are not worth associating with.
Literally cannot believe the number of people who are 100% against it.
Sure be original. But can you seriously say that your sense of style has never been influenced by others?

Jack Wills is awesome, not head to toe though, pieces in moderaion with other things looks quite nice. Jack Wills is what true british style is , not the trackie and trainers trend that seems to be the staple dress code.
I like Jack Wills look - I am quite preppy myself, so I like it by definition... though more so on girls like you.
