Benetton and Sisley
I noticed there are threads on H&M, Zara and Mango, but not about this ones

Personally, I prefer these two compared to other high street labels. They wear better and fit better, IMHO. The cutting is great. Hmm.... probably coz they are Italians?

PS: Sisley is Benetton's 'elder sister'

I like some items from Benetton and Sisley but I feel it's overpriced so I end up not buying tough I wished I had bought last year's duffle-coat.

It's quite basic and classic fashion also, so I don't feel it appealing on a regular basis like I do with Zara or H&M which have new trendy items all the time.

Finally, except from the Opera store in which sales people are very welcoming and helpful, in other Paris Benetton/Sisley stores, the service is dreadful... And this is a major turndown for me!

Eh? The SAs in St Michel and rue de Rennes are quite nice though.

^I don't know about rue de Rennes but at the Saint-Michel, Haussmann and Champs-Elysées stores, well, I'll only use the words of Samantha Jones :

“F... me badly once, shame on you. F... me badly twice, shame on me.”

So I never set foot again in any of these stores in ages.

I got my favorite pair of pants there on sale. Their clothing is a bit pricey for what it is but when they have sales you can find some good deals, and their pants fit me like nothing else I've ever worn. I've really come to love them.

My experience has been quite the opposite. I have loads of sweaters from them and they're doing fine.
