I've been to the London one but not a US one, so can't compare.
I was very disappointed to be honest; there seemed to be lots of space but v little stock and it seemed a bit expensive for the quality. Some very nice bright pink silk stuff though (this was in the summer).
I thought it was fairly similar in style, layout, feel to the US stores but definitely felt it had less stock. Upstairs had more variety of stuff than is implied from the signs for the first floor.
Price-wise, difficult to tell given wildly fluctuating exchange rates.
Quality - hmmm I bought a Tshirt the bottom hem of which completely unravelled the first time I wore it so was not impressed with that, but I think that the fabric was better than the "equivalent" from Gap. Got a lovely white shirt which I felt was pretty good value. Tried a similar one on at M&S and the BR one felt much nicer, better fabric, thicker and better cut.
its a flagship banana and will get the best of the best in , it will also be edited to UK taste.t its far more expensive than the us.it doesn't look like it has much stock as it will only have one of each size out instead of 3 like most other retailers.
its supposed to be high end boutique, not mass retail, look at each piece, ask a sales consultant to show you key pieces.
when my sister comes to London shopping we go down bond st, she always says there's nothing in the stores till i walk her around showing her all the lovely things.
