A spread of prices but generally reasonable value for money.
Jack & Jones misses out on the pure Nordic styles which play on its heritage but it does showcase some quality heavy knits alongside an impressive range of jean styles. The mix of panelled, engineered styles and washed straight fits appeal to a variety of shoppers. While the store also ticks the checked shirts box, its bright neon graphic T-shirts are standouts in a season when most graphic T-shirts on the high street feature either superhero or skull prints.
This gleaming store makes a nice change from some of the grubbier stores encountered and the jeans wall is an impressive feature, which draws shoppers to the back of the store. In all, it’s a smooth experience in a buzzy store and it’s quite pleasant to be left unaccosted while making trips to the fitting room. But in reality, there should be some contact from the staff.
The value story varies – there are some super-cheap pieces but prices do stretch up much higher on the quality items. At the cheap end, a striped cardigan is just £20 and bright graphic T-shirts go from £7 to £10. More expensive is a quilted jacket at £60, though this is reduced to £48, and jeans, which span £50 to £90. However, the price/quality ratio seems to be kept rigorously
