Great place for an occasional treat, unless you've got more money than me!

Advantages: Stylish, popular, good customer service.
Disadvantages: Not much variation in style / design.
I have been to a few Jack Wills stores, but I mainly visit the Leeds store. It's in a great location as it's on the edge of the Victoria Quarter (where all the fancy designer shops can be found) and it's right next to Debenhams, so very central to the high street.
When first entering the store (and most stores have similar fittings and design) you are greeted by a warm and stylish interior. Some of my friends think that Jack Wills is one of those typical designer stores where you daren't have a proper look around without a shop assistant glaring at you, but I've found that the staff are always friendly and leave you to look round, but are there if you need help. I particularly like the changing rooms in Jack Wills...they are a decent size and the lighting is good, and there is always one really big changing room with really good posters and even bean bags or super stylish chairs.
The clothes are good. There isn't a huge range of different styles and designs but they have their own unique look and the branding is good if you want people to know where your clothes are from. Some of the jogger bottoms and hoodies are really popular, and they can be expensive, but the sales can crate some really good discounts on items that you actually want, rather than items brought in specially for the sale. They also sell a few home items and the stationery is popular with students or for a gift.
I will definitely be going to Jack Wills in the run up to Christmas because it's great for presents, especially for the male members of my friends and family who I know will love the tshirts, hoodies, joggers and underwear. I may also treat myself while there!
Summary: A lovely shop, a bit different to others with it's own style. Items can be slightly pricey.
