    Default Allsaints

    Sorry for the influx of Peasant status threads, but someone posted a link to the Allsaints site, and it seems like a (generally) attractive budget brand.

    Obviously derivative, but I feel they can get a bit of a pass considering the pricing of the designer market they are looking to compete with (and it doesn't look like they have any 1:1 knockoffs)...

    Anyway I'd like to place an order but was wondering if anyone could comment on the quality first?

    its not great, but it's perfectly adequate given the price. Saw a pair of identikit paul harnden shoes in the window yesterday. frankly they are probably better value than the real thing.

    The CEO who iv met a few times does the rounds at the top shops, l'eclauier, library so on.
    He wears julius, viridi etc and jokes about how when he see's a piece by julius etc says ''coming to an all saints near you'' he has no dispute that all saints just rips off the designers sold in these places.

    I guess it is the best when it comes to high street stuff but i mean i don't buy that sort of thing because you see every other wanna be grunge indie idiot or wanna be goth ninja wearing the stuff. In the UK at the moment its either that or people draped in vintage throwbacks and smelling like my gran's underwear drawer.

    Seriously people don't do vintage justice' i mean the occasional vintage item worn the way merz wears his shoes is stunning. anyway i wouldn't buy the stuff unless you want to walk down the street seeing a mirror of yourslef on every other person.

    Maybe in the UK. It's virtually unknown everywhere else. Anyways, if you're looking for cheap all saints leathers just look on uk ebay.

    All Saints is all right, but don't expect too much.
    Quality wise in my view is on par with H&M or Zara with a different style.

    is there not another problem with this argument. if it's an exact rip of of VA, julius, ro etc., and you will apprently look like everyone else by wearing it, won't that also be true when you wear the "originals"?

    truth is that people who buy all saints don't fully "commit" to the look the way snafle would - so they'll wear a sludgy cardigan with a pair of prps worn in jeans and top shop plims. that IS a shit look for sure. but if you did wear it head to toe, it's a really close match to the real thing, and i'm not sure it's that common a look just yet.

    Every time I'm in London I go to Allsaints for a couple of tees. Here in Moscow, people don't know anything about Allsaints at all. So, sometimes people at parties asking me "Where did you get this cool tee?" ))))

    By the way the quality and the price are ok.

    Owned/own two items. A leather jacket from 2009 and currently ordered a drop-croth pants priced of 105GBP. Very disappointed with both even without considering myself too fussy and spoiled with Ann D quality. Keeps 1/3 of a a value.
