Who the hell buys from Jack Wills?Watch
It's certainly not the most expensive clothing ever either.
I admit, I'm aware the target market for Jack Wills is pretty much what you'd describe as the "upper-class", private school toffs, but honestly I think even toffs would be reluctant to fork out the ridiculous sums of money this company is charging for their rather mediocre clothing.
If people want to look a certain way and pay whatever for clothes, leave them to it. We have enough threads complaining about rahs, JW, A&F and w/e else.
I wouldn't say the prices are ridiculous, but you can definitely get much better quality stuff for similar prices.
It is the most comfortable hoodie I have ever had in my life and i LOVE it
Oh and by the way, I didn't pay a ridiculous amount for it... I got it in an outlet... for £40
It's not just 'upper class' or students who purchase clothing from the brand, i've seen young-ish mothers and housewives wearing it as well.
Who the hell buys from ASOS?
Who the hell buys from Topshop?
Who the hell buys from other ****, overpriced brands or shops?
It's a style. I like it, and tbh, I'd rather pay slightly more for an item I value more, than lots of cheap, **** ones that I'd throw away in a matter of weeks.
I've only got a few items from there, but they've lasted me, like, forever. And if I'm going to buy a shirt, I may as well buy one I like, that's going to last for longer, than one from Primark, where the stiching will come undone as soon as I've got it home.
TBH, I wonder the same thing about Topshop. It's so overpriced, so ridiculously expensive, for an item that every other person on the street is wearing. The difference with Jack Wills is that it's not going to go out of fashion tomorrow, unlike pretty much anything from Topshop.
And wow, I had no idea there were so many complete idiots on this forum! Shiiiiit, people have different dress sense?! No way. I thought everybody loved the same clothes, which is why there are only like three shops out there.
Clothes are the easiest way to describe yourself to strangers, so those people who choose to wear JW gillets and uggs constantly will know that at least have something in common with other JW wearing, Ugg loving, Tatler Reading, Oh my goshing folk
Personally, I hate expensive clothes because of the principle, if I ever get the urge to have 'quality' clothing - I get it made! Tailored to me precisely in exactly the fabrics I love...and it still works out cheaper than a lot of **** that they charge £250 for.
Ultimately clothes help you identify yourself, I personally choose to identify myself as a mismatched idiot who doesn't give that much of a crap about the way I look.........hence why the JW & ugg combo people and I tend not to get along too well.
"Overpriced" is an arbitrary measured used mainly by people who always buy the cheapest option available.
"hence why the JW & ugg combo people and I tend not to get along too well."
what the hell is that about?! right now i'm sitting in jw track pants, uggs and a hoodie. i'm an easy going normal person. i go to a normal school. i sail, i rock climb, i walk the dog, i have a part time job, i go out with friends - i'm just like you. if i chose to wear this stuff, who are you to judge me?!
people in this thread are calling jw wearers stuck up - i'm sorry i think you need to have a look in the ******* mirror.
Deal with it?
I actually really like the style (not all of it), I just hate the MASSIVE logos on their hoodies so I've got a shirt and some trackies where the logo is tiny.

I don't understand why people hold such grudges about clothing brands... Each to their own!
