if I like Joe Browns style clothes where could I find similar but with better quality?

I am going back to work next month (office, smart casual) after a mat leave year in skinny jeans and suitable-for-breast-feeding tops, pregnancy was spent in leggings and tunic dresses

I want to update my workwear wardrobe but stick with the leggings/boots/dress style so can cope with office and home without having to change the moment I pick up DD

I love Joe Browns clothes but am fed up of having to constantly repair them when the seams go etc so want to find a company that does a similar size but better quality ... Does anyone have any suggestions please?

(budget is relatively small but would rather have 3/4 key pieces that I can wear for the next year than 10 items that fall apart within months)

I would say Sea Salt, White Stuff, Joules and Fat Face all do things in a similar sort of style and are mostly decent quality. And the perennial MN favourite, Boden.

The thing about joe browns is the price though.
You can get 2 outfits for the price of a jumper from the other suggestions given so far.
I suppose if you have the money and not the time to repair clothes then it's better to buy the better quality.
I wear joe brown and have never had a problem but must have just been lucky.
Isbel is also good and not that expensive, although same sort of quality.

Thanks for the suggestions so far, will go have a look

I agree re cost newlifeforme but is not so much about the time but wanting quality to start with (I may still order from Joe Browns in the sale)
