Hit or miss: Reiss - 7/10

  • 14 Market Place

Reiss

Pros

A cohesive autumn edit marks out Reiss as having the same winning formula as Jigsaw, suited to a younger customer. Purple and grey are the anchor colours across a smart-meets-casual wardrobe. Plain merino knits in roll-neck or round-neck options are about £80, basic T-shirts are £25 and smart jackets, such as a coated grey Harrington for £175 or a leather funnel-neck bomber for £395, form well-made staple pieces that don’t break the bank. Then, exceptional items such as a chunky dogtooth roll-neck jumper, a leopard-print shirt or an arty colour-blocked lightweight knit - all for around or less than £100 - elevate the offer. It all works together, but with the opportunity to style the range for different tastes.

Cons

Quite a few pieces are missing price tags, which is annoying, and there is a limit to the number of sizes out, with generally only two to three of each item. One customer was overheard asking the sales assistant about the sizing system, who then had to go and check for herself, which isn’t promising, although staff were friendly. The shop would benefit from more mannequins, as although pieces look attractive on the rails there isn’t much visual merchandising.
