Somehow I’ve never shopped at Old Navy, but I’m on their website now and like the look of some of their clothes.
I am a bit wary of the prices, though. Usually when I buy clothes for regular prices like theirs, they end up falling apart or becoming misshaped after the first wash.
So what’s the quality like? I’m not looking for miracles here.. but I would like to find some dresses and maybe some tops that would last for at least a season or two.

Their hoodies are fab, I have TONS of them from when I was younger as well. I’ve never tried their tops or jeans though. [They seem odd shaped to me]
I tend to shop at aeropostale, american eagle, & jcpenney [although not so much anymore since they don’t carry decree].

Old Navy – Quality
Axe Murderer – Babysitter
Vegetarian – Bullfighter
I think that about sums it up…but if you aren’t expecting too much from it, you probably won’t be dissapointed!
I always like their t-shirts, but I find everything else to be oddly cut and poorly constructed.

I used to work there… and it really depends on the fabric. I still have shirts from there, but most of them have those little fabric-ball things on them. (I have no idea what they’re called, but you get them from washing/wearing). So – the smoothness of the fabric doesn’t last very long.
My husband gets his jeans there (for now) but they fade kinda quick and we have to replace them 1-2 times per year.
If you need a quick fix, that’s the place to go. Their stuff probably won’t last you longer than 6 months realistically.
Oh yeah, and their fits tend to be really box-y and generic. They fit larger than most places too (so if you wear a medium, you could usually get away with buying a small.)

I really like their workout clothes because they’re cheap, but I definitely woulnd’t say anything was great quality.

@canarydiamond: Old Navy is terrible. I used to buy a few things here and there, but I gave up on them a long time ago.

I gave up buying clothes there. The pants always fit super weird, the shirts shrunk, got mishapen or the necks got all stretched out. I think the hoodies were decent but I haven’t gone there in years.

I really don’t mind Old Navy. I hate their pants/shorts, but I don’t typically have any problems with quality.

I do Love old NAvy However, there clothes tend to be thin and runn big. No longer then ayr a best. Jeans on the other hand i love. Fit me great is sweeheart line. Love their shoes and dresses.
Gap Is a step up and their clothes last much longer and they are sister store. But most of the time you get what u pay for.

It just depends on what you’re buying. Pants and jeans are always cut weird. Tshirts and sweatshirts seem to be okay. I’ve gotten a few sweats along the way that aren’t bad. Your best bet is to go in the store and check out the material things are made of.

I don’t shop there. I went in once to look at the jeans and I did not like how they were shaped and they run a bit on the large side.

I think it depends on what you are buying and what you expect. If you are looking for super basic things, like plain tees and tanks, they’re a great choice for the price. The sizing is either TTS or runs a bit large (so size down). Same thing for loungwear and PJs. I do like the PJ pants quite a bit.
If you are looking for wardrobe staples to last you season after season, I wouldn’t suggest ON unless you are on a serious budget. For example, their winter peacoat is not all that warm and attacts lints like crazy whereas my JCrew one is pricier but way warmer and doesn’t attact or show lint the way the ON does. Given that the ON cost me about $50 full price and the JCrew was about $150 on sale, it’s worth saving and splurging. The JCrew has taken care of me in the winter for about 3-4 years now and is going strong. The ON was donated after one season to goowilll.

If you pay attention to the fabrics it helps. I have some clothes from old navy that have worn well.
I actually don’t buy workout wear there though. It just seems like it would pill fast and have trouble finding anything that fits. I would rather pay more for good stuff or buy cotton stuff at walmart.
