After having read the reviews now i imagine that the ones that have given all saints a 4 star rating must be people involved with the company. The quality is of the worst king and what are they thinking when they price these items which have clearly been made in asian countries at very VERY low cost. Definately dont buy anything from these stors they are not worth it. You get better quality at Prymarc
Avoid like the plague this place is a rip off and the quality is shockingly back. Three items ive had to return because they where unwearable. And if it lasts after the first time, you may aswell throw it away after you wash it. Seriously dont be fooled.
It is such a shame! Trendy stylish stuff yet the quality and the price are shocking. I have had to return three items due to the item being unwearable after the first wash or wear. Such and shame cause they have really cool and different clothing.
avoid at all costs!!overpriced, products looking totally different at day light,once you are cheated into buying a faulty product -no chance of refund. customer service policy is they are always right rather than customer.very bad indeed
I used to just love All Saints clothes, having spent thousands both in the store and online. Their customer service is absolutely appalling, however. I purchased a dress online, and less than 10 days after receiving it, it went on sale for 60 pounds less. I called their customer service and they refused to do the price adjustment.
Of course, I can return the dress and rebuy it, but 1) why unnecessarily waste environmental resources, 2) why waste everyone's time, especially the customer's, and 3) I bought it to wear to a wedding the day after tomorrow -- rebuying it won't allow enough time for it to be delivered so that I can wear it.
I'm massively disappointed. I bought shoes to match the dress. But I have no choice but to just return the dress and move on.
All Saints seems to play a never ending game of price roulette. I'm always worried that the item will go on sale the week after I buy it. They also reticket items in advance of having sales, so watch out for that.
Lastly, the quality seems to be going down too. Sigh. All things considered, I have to find a new favorite store.
I've always been a fan of the All Saints fashion but have consistently been let down by their lack of interest in the quality of the articles they sell. One would think that their clothing was manufactured to the minimal standards possible. I bought a beautiful trench coat and button after button kept falling off. How often do you spend over £200 on a jacket and in order to continue wearing it do you have to continuously re-attach the buttons? The two belt like attachments which cinch the cuffs togethe kept on falling off as well. I returned to their flagship store in Spittalfields for a refund or in the very least additional buttons and cinches for the cuffs but no one was interested in helping me. They gave me a number to call which was upstairs in the very same building. Nothing was done to rectify the problem. they simply didnt care at all that the trench coat I bought from them was falling apart.
I still really like their fashions, but I will never shop there again. You would have to be an idiot to give custom to a company who produces such low quality products and is not interested in their customer services.
I have shopped at All Saints stores for a couple of years now and have always had great customer service but I have had the complete opposite experience with online shopping. I am still waiting for someone to contact me regarding a refund for a jacket that was purchased in December. I have tried to call 6 times and have waited up to 10 minutes for someone to speak to before hanging up. I sent and e-mail explaining my concerns and received an automated response informing me that someone would get back to me within 5 days.... I am still waiting. I will not shop online again with All Saints.
The thing about All Saints is that it stands out from amongst the usual high street stores, which churn out very similar looks every season. They clearly take their lead from Vivienne Westwood (so many of their dresses and coats are almost direct copies!) and cut military edged clothes in plaid and laser printed fabrics. But here comes All Saints gripe number one: they turn the same stuff out practically every season!
I am so so bored of seeing the exact same dresses but in a different print every single season! It's particularly annoying if you happened to have bought one, because the shape has been sitting on their racks for so long that by the time they discontinue it (which I'm not sure they've ever done!) everyone and their mother is wearing it in some colour or other. And by then everyone can look at it straight away and think 'oh, she's wearing All Saints' - which is not what I want! So please All Saints - design a few new shapes.
My second gripe is the price. I simply don't think it's worth it. Believe you me, I am perfectly happy spending a coupld hundred on a dress, but not one that everyone is wearing and not one which has clearly cost them about £4 to make. All Saints is just a high street brand, not a high end brand so I don't think the prices are worthwhile. For the same money I could pop to Selfridges and buy something more unique and...
better made. This is my third and biggest gripe! The clothes are appallingly made. And I really do mean that. Worse than any other single thing in my wardrobe. Buttons fall off all the time, seams split, colours wash out, colours bleed, edges fray, jumpers bobble and trousers shrink. And I really take care of my clothes, so this is not the norm for me. I always follow the labels properly and use especially delicate non-bio washing liquids. My latest, and probably worst All Saints quality-related experience is a bikini which I bought for £75, which on it's very first wear in a swimming pool tie-dyed itself. No one else's costume was affected. It is now a hideous yellow and brown instead of Khaki green. That's appalling given the price. Of course there was no label on the bikini warning that it wasn't fit for pools, but I didn't keep the receipt so won't be able to get a refund. Great.
This is related to my fourth gripe: returns policy. Now, I know that in this country we are very lucky to have such helpful consumer protection and I appreciate that by law (and I am indeed a lawyer) a retailer doesn't have to give a refund unless goods are faulty. However, it is common place that they do - why? Because they know that the consumer will be happy and will probably buy something with a view to trying it at home, and then perhaps forget to return it anyway. It's comparable to a loss leader in many ways. I dislike the fact that this isn't the case at All Saints. What have they got to be so cagey about? It's as though they are trying to squeeze you to buy things and this gives me a bad feeling. Shopping should be about making the consumer happy as well. It's an unhelpful policy and probably puts a lot of people off buying things that they might otherwise just take home and try on (I know it has for me). It's also not helpful that the lighting often is purposefully dark in their changing rooms - all makes me very suspect.
Despite all this, I do still buy the occasional thing from All Saints. Why? Well, they have a great online website, which therefore comes within the Distance Selling Regulations - allowing you to retyurn after 14 days. As for all the constant fixing, sewing etc - I try not to wear the items that often. I suppose I put up with it because they are convenient to shop with and it's often difficult to resist temptation...
What a fool I am.
I love the designs of the clothes in All Saints. It is my favourite shop but I just wish that it wasn't so expensive! If I see something I like then I usually wait until it comes in the sale, then I snap it up straight away. It's still normally a bit more expensive than most shops though, even when it's their clearance.
Today I bought a gorgeous top, similar to one that I've wanted for ages. It is one of their graphic t-shirts, from the Laurie Lipton collection. It was supposed to be £45 but was reduced today to just £13.50 so I snapped it up. The changing rooms were busy and I didn't have time to wait so I couldn't try it on, which was gutting as when I got home I found out that it is too small! I thought it would be OK as it looks really long, but it is just a bit tight. I love it though so I'm going on a diet!
The t-shirts are always a bit thin and they don't last very long, so they aren't the best quality you could buy. And they are so expensive so I only go here if I want something a bit extra special.
In my opinion the styles and uniqueness of the clothes sold here are too beautiful for words which makes up for the price not being so good.
Recommended for rich people, and for not so rich people like me who just like to have a look round and dream about buying it all!
Yes i do have a guilty pleasure and that is All Saints. Everything tells me i shouldn't, all my intuition, common sense, every ounce of sanity within me tells me i shouldn't feel the way i do about the clothing brand. Whether it be due to their exorbitant pricing, use of flimsy materials, huge popularity or incredibly irritating sales assistants, all the warning signs are there to tell me to walk on. But sadly no can do, everytime i walk through House of Fraser or stroll up to Westfields London i find myself drawn to these merchants of greed. The silkiness of the cotton, the classy look of the embroided ramskull, the slimfit of their polos, i just can't get enough. Yes i am sound in the knowledge that their cardigans and v necks will catch after one night out and fully disintegrate after a single wash, but you know what? I just couldn't care.
Their cardigans i find are expceptional, well for the time they can stay in one piece anyway. The premium merino wool they use is so smooth and comfortable and fitted with such perfection that it just hugs your figure superbly. Yes they are very thin and flimsy, but then one can argue simply don't wear them too often. Purchase a couple and wear them on the odd occasion. This way their lifespan is prolonged for at least twice as long, meaning you could probably have one last at least a month before it internally combusts.
Polos are of better quality and are far more durable than their cottonwear, but then you are sacrificing that merino wool feel. The polos too are slim fit and again hug your figure superbly, clinging to your muscles, providing you purchase the right size of course.
Prices can vary depending on which line it is. Polos are typically 40-50 pounds and cottonwear can range from about 60-80. So in no way is it a cheap fix. But you know what we couldn't care less. In my mind they are more exclusive than Ralph Lauren and simply outclass Fred Perry in looks. Lacoste is a tad chavvy and have an awful fit. All in all All Saints is the current king of mens wear.
Allsaints has a wonderful array of fashionable clothes, worn by JLS, Cheryl Cole and the like. There are good ranges of dresses, t-shirts, jeans, and even cushions. They even have a credit card if you buy a lot from the shop.
However, I don't understand why people shop here, unless money isn't an object to them. Why, when you can buy an equally fashionable one elsewhere, would you pay thirty odd pounds for a t-shirt? And £75 for the aforementioned cushion.
Yes the clothes are fashionable, and yes, there is a good range, but quite frankly, I don't think a single thing in there is actually worth the price tag. THe quality of the clothes isn't eve that good - my sister has several t-shirts from there which have torn.
I also feel, whenever I'm in there, that the place is so incredibly dull. The clothes in there - to my mind anyhow - always look as though they're styled for the autumn - even in the middle of summer.
They also offer you an Allsaints credit card after every transaction, which I would advise everyone to avoid at it is a terrible rate.
There would be only one way that I would shop in Allsaints - if I had more money than sense.
All Saints- my favourite shop in the world. This brand has definitely got something for everyone- I am 21 and my mum is 52 and we can both easily find something amazing, flattering and well- fitted to wear. The printed t-shirts are gorgeous, with a skull/skeleton theme in general. The clothes are so well fitting, but I must say that sometimes the sizes are a bit off- I am a Size 10 and I have clothes from All Saints ranging from a Size 6 to a Size 12, so I would advise to ALWAYS try on before purchasing. Not only that, but they also do not give refunds (only exchange or credit note), so be certain of your choice before purchase. Although the prices are high (usually £100+ for a dress, £80+ for a top, £35+ for a t-shirt), they are definitely worth it. The quality is amazing, and they are definitely investment pieces that you will keep in your wardrobe for years to come. They are also stand out from the crowd, unique pieces, with those who are after an edgy look that isn't following the rest of the high street.
All Saints is a fashion store that could be described as cutting edge. The clothes are amazing, distressed and beautiful, and they have some amazing designs for both men and women. Be warned though, your style comes with a hefty price tag- Be prepared to pay around £40 for a man's t-shirt, to £100-£200 for a dress and even more for some leather products. There is an undeniably gorgeous leather jacket on their website for £450.
The shops themselves should be visited just to look at them. Often they are made of sheet metal that looks like it's rusting with bare wood floors, which all adds to the experience. Some of the changing rooms feel almost like jail cells, or that you are in the wild west. A lot of their clothes also reflect the wild west theme, and a sheep's skull is one of their most popular motifs.
So- are the clothes worth it? Certainly, they are better quality than your average high street store. Many of the cuts are more flattering, and the clothes really fit. The range is huge, and fairly varied around the central style. There aren't any bold bright colours and everything has a distressed edgy feel. I would buy a few "statement" pieces, rather than trying to create an everyday outfit from this shop.
All Saints fashion isn't for everyone, it's for those who love fashion and beautiful clothes but what to feel a bit special and different too. While most girls have to save up for every item, it is definitely worth it, and is more timeless than ten t-shirts from Primark.
As well as clothes, All Saints have also started a home ware range. I'm not impressed so far- who really spends £150 on a knitted cushion? However, I adore their raged leather notebook with deliberately aged pages, which is only £12 and they sell some greetings cards that are truly works of art- even if it is £20 for a pack of five.
I love this shop, and if you have never been, it is definitely time to visit, or check out the website, but it's not the same as seeing the clothes in person. In addition, I have always found the staff helpful and polite, and some of them give great style advice.
I had never been in ALLSAINTS before, well untill two weeks ago. After looking around the shop there were so many lovely clothes but not a lot under the price of £100. I did however find one of the latest tops called the All Saints Sechin Top priced at £145. Once I had tried it on I knew I had to have it, this top flatters all sizes. It has a sequin and bead design on the front and back of the top. It has some definite weight to the item as well due to the all the sequins. So even though the garment is made out of chiffon you don't have to worry about it flying away.
What I did find though after wearing this item only once a couple of the sequins had already started to drop off and for the price of this item I was hoping I would not have any problems. However saying that I do really love this top it goes perfectly with jeans for a casual look or leggins for an dressed up look.
A little bit about Allsaints, its a shop that sets the trend within the fashion sector, you may have seen the belts everywhere that they did Jesus Rocks etc. This was something that all the other companies seemed to copy and had nearly everyone wearing one.
Their clothing is unique and stylish and their range covers men, women and children with also a wide range of accessories to match. It has even expanded into a small homeware section though this merely entails cushions and photo albums.
You can always find this shop in all major cities and it is International as well. I personally went to the Manchester Arndale one. The staff were friendly but after working in retail myself I am always aware of each shops return of goods policies.
If this item was to be bought actually in the Allsaints shop, if for some reason I changed my mind I would only be offered a credit note, not a full refund. However after speaking with another member of staff they did mention that if I buy this item from an Allsaints concession they would give me a full refund or a credit note, which I would be entitled to spend it on anything within the department store. This seemed safer as I wasn't sure if my husband would agree on the price! I did however find this policy odd so I went and bought the item from Selfridges instead with a view if it had to go back for any reason I had a choice of where to spend a credit note.
Again like I've mentioned it was my first time purchasing anything from Allsaints, I do love the range of clothes and if you want to buy something that you will feel special in they definitely will have something. Hope this has been of some help.
If you want to look trendy and classy All Saints is definately the shop for you. Yes it is expensive but all the items I have bought I have worn more than just an odd £5 top from Primark thats sat in the wardrobe with the tags still on it. My greatest investment is my all saints belt, i wear it most days because it goes with everything, around a long top with leggings or just around a pair of nice jeans, allthough it was £95, for the amount of times I have wore it, its definately worth it and its still in great condition like I bought it yesterday, definately a sign of quality and in my honest opinion I would rather pay more out for a quality item than pay £15 or £20 out every other week for mediocre products. The only negative side to all saints are their sizes, I think the biggest sizes they do are a 14 so they do only cater for smaller/ average people.
