I find myself occasionally drawn to something on the site, sometimes in store, but have never took the plunge. I kind of shudder at the prices considering they are hardly a designer brand, more like high end high street. Do you think their products are value for money, or a bit of a rip off? I still can't get my head around a floaty 100% polyester dress for £150.
God I hate Reiss. They are he worst. Rubbish quality, inconsistent sizing and pushy sales staff, the holy trinity of crap clothing retail. I don't even bother going in anymore. Whistles are going the same way for me. It doesn't help that my local Whistles and Reiss are situated near such lovely shops (Matches, DVF, Trilogy etc) that the clothes really suffer by comparison quality-wise.
I tend to like about 10% of their stock. Bought an amazing tuxedo slouch type blazer there which works well with dresses, their dresses are fine too. Tips too thin and tend to open up small holes...trousers just never fit me...shapeless, saggy. Prices are fine.
I buy all my Whistles stuff on ebay and sell about 50% of it on. I agree that the dresses are too short I am 5'9 though. I love their scarves and bags, purses etc. Have never tried their trousers. Would never pay full price.
I have only ever bought t shirts in Whistles and they have all washed badly - widen and shrink in length. You think I'd have learnt the first time but no I went back for more. Reiss stuff is just not my thing...too prim.
Yes but the £8 delivery charge is very off putting also. To be honest, ive got so many of those bastard boxes now I could do with a non-fancy pants option! Also I bought some shoes for DH from the mens section the other day. They came in a massive marble box, yet delivery was only £5! Why the discrimination, Matches?
