    I got a couple of nice tops from them while on holiday in the UK. They have a nice cut, fit and fabric and workmanship. I would put them well above H&M etc… I guess for me they are high quality high street fashion.

    Definitely a lot higher quality than H&M or F21 – I buy a lot of work clothes from Wallis and they’re really good, last a long time. I don’t know Tyrwhitt and don’t own any Pink…. I guess I’d put Wallis alongside Designers at Debenhams or Monsoon for quality. They have concessions in BHS often, bit they’re definitely better quality than standard BHS. Is be happy wearing something from there for pre-wedding events. 

    Their jewelry is pretty, but I never tried any of it as if it’s not gold/silver/etc I go green in minutes. 

    PS, I voted high quality, but as pp said, this is high quality high street, not high quality designer.

    @bitsybee:  ah, sorry, was comparing to UK brands. I don’t think I own anything from any of the ones you listed, but my impression is that they’re similar. Or probably comparable to the nicer stuff at Macys (I’ve got some Jasper Conran from Macys which is well made, not sure whether this is representative!).
