Advantages: Good range of shirts
Disadvantages: Poor quality trousers
When it comes to shopping for clothes, it can be a very tiresome process. I like to be sure that the clothes I buy fit, feel comfortable and that they look good. While everyone likes to have designer brands its also good to have a range of clothes including those from the middle of the range such as Zara.
Having shopped at Zara over the years for mens' clothes, I would say Zara is good for shirts. Many of the shirts I have in my wardrobe are Zara made. Made from reasonably good quality and a European style cut, the shirts tend to fit well, not too tight while not too baggy. I have purchased more expensive shirts in the range of £50+ from designer stores such as Ralph Lauren however I'm more than satisfied with the shirts I have purchased from Zara.
However, other than shirts, I wouldn't recommend any other line of clothes at the store. I've never found a jacket at Zara of a decent cut or fit from this store. Also, some years ago I purchased several pairs of Zara trousers. The fabric seemed to be of good quality, the cut seemed good and for approx £20 - £25 I thought I had found a bargain. However I soon realized the trousers were lacking material, they felt very thin and light, almost pyjama like. I began to feel uncomfortable going out wearing Zara trousers and before long stopped wearing them. The trousers were half the price of Gap yet half the material. I never wear a set of clothes all from the same shop anyway, usually a pair of Gap jeans and a Zara shirt. Stick with Zara for shirts.
