Your question, begs more questions, but, you could start off at Chicos.com,or Coldwatercreek.com....if this level of quality is not sufficient, let us know,and we can go from there, ok?

In earlier days you may find good and quality clothes onclothesline. With dryers clotheslines are harder to find today.

I agree with Kohls.com but I also like Target.com and Amazon.com. I frequently fill my cart and make wish lists just for fun!

Just wondered if you only shop online or visit the stores. I know I rarely will purchase clothes online, I am one of those that needs to try on what I will buy??

Donna completely agree with you. Mostly i prefer stores where i can try them before buying them.
I had a bad memory of online shopping so i have stopped it completely.

My wife should really answer this, however.

We buy a lot of stuff from Sierra Trading Post.

Sierra Trading Post - Great Deals. Great Brands.

They have a lot of quality outdoor clothing. I like Keen shoes and pay around $40 a pair at STP rather than over $100 locally.

I've had good success with TravelSmith and Magellan's. Both specialize in travel specific wear for men & women. They are not cheap but they 100% guarantee their products. I've returned a few items over the years and with both companies got a no question asks refund. It's an option anyway. (sometimes I just look at the catalogs for ideas for travel wear, luggage etc.) Catalogs are free and you can find them online also.

There are so many sites that are offering online shopping but reliability is the key, so I always go and shop online from ebay or amazon.

Good question. Glad you asked. If I did not find your post I was going to ask.

You said "good" clothes correct.

I do not buy Kohl s, Target, Wal-mart or Old Navy. I have never had anything that I would consider good quality there.

Land s End Clothes last forever. They last so long you want to throw them away.

Coldwater Creek s knit jeans last forever. They look like regular jeans and last forever. They have no iron blouses too. I have had so many compliments on them. People actually think I get them pressed. Do not use fabric softener on them though. It takes off the finish.

Columbia makes fantastic clothes.

L. L. Bean.

Chico s

Sierra Trading Post

Belk

Macy s

Magellean s

Travel Smith

I had the most comfortable clogs which I paid over 150.00 for but they fell apart and the company would not replace them. They are called Ana-Tech. I wore them maybe 10 times. They fell apart.

I happen to find a lot of good stuff at Kohls, and just an FYI, they sell a full line of Columbia items, from socks to jackets, both cool weather and cold weather...They also sell a lot of name brand things, especially cooking equipment, etc....Time to check them out over paying high prices at some of the other stores you mention, while all great quality, you pay dearly for some items you can find at a better price elsewhere.

There are more than one option is available on web where you get good quality clothes at cheap price. Amazon and Ebay both are famous sites where you will get the best collection of branded clothes along with the fabulous deals.

Default Sales

In my posts for stores i only catch the sales. Then i have reards discounts etc. i hit up Marshall s and T J Maxx too. My clothes have never held up at Kohl s. plus, they too mark up prices then lower them and act like you are getting a bargain.

You can t buy on line from T J Maxx or Marshall s but i check all the time.

Land s End products and L L bean have fantastic cllothes if you are on the conservative side.

Coldwater Creek has knit jeans that stretch and you cannot tell they are knit at all.

there is a catalog/online company that has been around for years- BLAIR.com

They have men's and women's clothing (no kids clothes) even in expanded sizes. they also have some Home items. prices are reasonable and the quality is good. Also they have a good return policy, if you are not satisfied, they will take it back and refund your money.

There is a lot online actually. You can see the most popular first when you look into the search engine. I am not only talking about clothes but almost every services and goods that you can think of.

eshakti.com. The clothes I've got have all been great (less hit or miss than Mod Cloth, where I like most things but some are just...no. They use so many designers sizes can be complete crapshoots.) And I LOVE the customizing. I can change lengths on most skirts, add sleeves (I HATE sleeveless) or change sleeve length on most things.

I've had good luck with dear-fashion.com

They have a lot of nice clubwear, and their prices are below competitors,.
