    Do you not just hate them, the bad quality, the obviousness, the wanna-be pretentiousness?
    [.....]
    I'm all for good quality and paying as such, but why do you have the most obvious logos?.
    Bad quality?! Neither of them are.
    Primark, H&M, River Island, etc is bad quality.

    Why do you pity them? That's odd.

    I don't like the whole collections but I generally like:
    Jack Wills trackies
    Abercrombie jeans & denim minis
    Both have some nice hoodies but overpriced.

    Yep, its established, the "quality" is good, but who cares, they're boring clothes for boring people, but I'm not going to dish out abuse to people who wear it, thats their choice.

    Next.

    I'm hardly a JW rah and can only afford things when down to final reductions in the sale. However, the JW shirts are anything BUT bad quality. The cotton is really, really good quality.

    I have always thought that the girls shirts looked so much better than mens!

    speaking as a serial owner, honestly the mens shirts arent very good quality at all, and the fit is mostly terrible! you can get better shirts pretty much anywhere else for the same price guaranteed, apart from the sale which seems to last half the year!

    Whittawer clothes are in fact really awful, the quality is very poor. You only need to look at the pictures on the website to see that. They seem to just buy standard plain clothes and print their own logo on them.

    I also used to like JW and Abercrombie around 3 years ago. But now I wouldn’t touch the stuff, (Though I still like the JW jeans)
    They're over used, it’s a shame because the quality in the clothes from these two brands are in fact very good.

    Now a days, I luckily know one of the staff working at Ganobi & Grant, www.ganobi.com, so I have most of their spring collection already, which is good because I won’t see many people wearing the same item of clothing which I’m wearing, which with JW and Abercrombie I will.

    Their well made and fit well. Overpriced yes, but I own an Abercrombie t-shirt and JW boxers and t-shirt. I HATE people that wear them all the time, but the odd peice of clothing is fine IMO.

    ganobi are the ones with the bear right?
    We have now sold out of our Summer Collection 2008, and we would like to thank you all for your interest in our brand. Therefore at the moment we are working really hard on producing our Spring Collection, which will be launched in February 2009.
    what on earth, why would you ever take your site down? at least show some old collections!

    www.hurtleygiles.com was another of the ilk, but has been very quiet since i first heard of them a few years ago.

    Abercrombie and Fitch is the worst shop in London, I get a headache every time I go in, and what bland boring clothing, also ridiculously overpriced for what it is too

    And if you want real quality go Selfridges and House of Frazer not these bastions of banality
