I've really fallen out of love with Mango over the years, and it's come to the point where I don't even go in the store anymore : ( I'm really hoping they come out with a collection I like...

^I agree. And their ridiculous prices are so off-putting, too. Who buys a €1300 coat from Mango? They were always very good with bags, shoes and leather jackets but everything's so overpriced nowadays. I think the quality of their stuff is slightly better than Zara, but Zara is just so much trendier and looks more fresh and young while Mango is losing its appeal.

i´m also so tired of Mango- much too overpriced, bad quality, not as good as it was once.

and their sizing is weird i find! You can't get a uk 6 for most things there. I'm petite and it just puts me off so much as nothing really fits.

Nice!! I bought a very nice black dress. But I bought it on sales. Thre is no way to buy from Mango without sales. The quality and the prices do not match!!

I recently went through their online catalog and what caught my attention were the tops and pants since I'm currently looking for a pair of skinny khakis. I do agree that some items are overpriced and I wasn't exactly wowed by the accessories. If anything I'll most likely purchase a shirt on sale or at a discount price.

Mango
Often when I browse Mango website I'm not sure about the quality or the fit of the clothes, so I have to go and try them IRL at the nearest Mango store.

Hope we could share our experiences in this thread by posting our new buys from Mango and discuss the quality and fit of Mango's pieces.



This afternoon I bought this jumper and this cuff. I must say that the jumper is of very good quality, specially for it's price. I had to buy it a size bigger then my usual size.
