Advantages: Good quality clothing; clothes fit well; good selection
Disadvantages: Expensive; hard to see in shop (this isn't even a joke!)
I am a big fan of Hollister.
I was first introduced to the store in the Summer of 2009. I entered the dark, gloomy 'pier side' shop, and my first impressions were not good. I couldn't see the clothing, the members of staff were wearing sandals, and I wasn't sure I'd ever find my way out of the shop.
However, after purchasing and wearing some of the clothing, I have been won over, and it is actually my first stop off when I go to a shopping centre. Although I'm still not crazy on the design of the shop due to how dark it is, I can understand what Hollister are going for, because it really does create a refreshing shopping atmosphere and something a little different to the generic high street stores of today.
The clothing is excellent. I generally purchase T-shirts for under £20, and they fit very well. I go for a small size, and these fit really nicely- they feel made-to-fit rather than being cheaply made (even though they will be). The hoodies and shirts, despite being very expensive, are also very nice, and I have become a big fan of these.
As mentioned, the price is quite high, however this is expected for any brand name these days. £40 for a hoody is a lot, but like I say, I didn't expect to pay any less.
Overall, a refreshing change from standard high street shops.
