I've noticed that Zara is now making many items in polyester and it's still priced the same when it (e.g. blouse, button up) was cotton.

Despite their clothing being absolute rubbish lately their home stuff is quite good. It's actually made by a separate company entirely. Their high end linen is fabulous same for the towels. I would wait until the half yearly sale and stock up then on the most expensive Egyptian cotton sheets you can buy. I buy some during each sale.

I've bought some shirts and a dress in the past few months, and there was nothing wrong with the quality whatsoever.

Did anyone try these? I wonder if they are somewhat comfortable as the sole suggests...

I've experienced the same... Patched them, so they became my home jeans. Soon enough zipper broke, belt loops - without even wearing a belt, rivets fell off... all within a month. Gross. After that I never went near the jeans or pants section again, I swear...

I bought two jeans two years ago, they are still new and they are may favourites.

However, I agree quality and design in Zara has made a turn for the worse. Their prices have also gone way up.

Wore my Zara embroidered bomber jacket today (I liked it so much I bought 2 - different sizes - am very happy with the quality of this piece, the embroidery and the fabric), must take a pic of the M to compare sizing, I think I like the slouchier M when I wear sneakers (I'm wearing an S below):


Tried them with my skorts, but quickly changed when I saw my pasty legs I also like the quality of this skort, but may need to buy another in a smaller size...


I agree about the polyester issue I am usually a polyester snob, but caved when I saw Zara's crossover checked blouse, as I really liked the design and colour.

I've noticed this too. I placed a very large order and ended up returning everything. While it looked great online, in person most of the items looked cheap and all the sweaters were incredibly itchy.

Really? Did some shopping for basics today (denim shorts and leather flats) here in Lithuania and sales are nowhere to be seen. Hope they start soon though because I've been eyeing a few pieces for quite some time now
