Refreshing!

The clothing at FOX can be a little hit or miss. The bad ones are barely worth a second glance, but the good pieces are keepers. The quality of clothing at FOX varies a lot. Some shirts may be a little flimsy with thin barely-there fabric, but there are certain pieces which are worth every single dollar.

Personally, I love the floral dresses that FOX sells. They are of good quality, and the length caters to slightly taller females like myself. I get quite vexed at times when I am unable to find a dress of appropriate length because of my height , but the dresses at FOX have that extra inch or so of material that fits my height perfectly.

I browse through FOX's accessories collection quite frequently as well, as these can get pretty cheap during sales and are definitely worth the buy.

The stores can get pretty messy at times during sales, but if you take the time to look through the various racks of clothing, you'll definitely find a hidden gem.

Not the best out there

FOX is a fashion company targeting the young adult market. Problem is, in my opinion, their designs doesn't seem to attract them at all.

I've bought a couple of shirts and tees from FOX in the past. True, the quality is there, but the design is definitely not. There is a reason that their plain tees and plaid shirts are better sellers rather than their quirky contemporary pieces. In addition, prices tend to be a little high. For the premium that I pay, I would rather get something from Topman, Esprit, or even Zara.

Not a bad brand, but not my choice for now.

Not cheap, even after sales...

FOX is one of those clothing stores that I'd always walk into whenever I see it, but would never ever buy anything. I still keep up this 'tradition' till today, reason being their clothes are not that cheap, and their clothing are very hit-or-miss.

Even during a sale, such as GSS, their clothes are still pretty pricey, and I do question the quality of their clothes. Sometimes, it feels like I can get the same quality at Cotton On, which is cheaper, but I guess FOX clothes differ in quality. Also, there have been a couple of times When I'd go into the Vivo City outlet and walk out after a mere two minutes, either because there's nothing of interest or because I am confused by the way they hang their clothes. It's as though they anyhow chuck things to different corners. At a clothing store, I'd expect to see the same types of tees hung accordingly, but not at FOX, at least for quite a few times already...

Would not buy anything, but would always walk in. For all I know, I might just see something that completely catches my eyes (and is cheap, hopefully) and purchase it!

Great variety to choose from

I like shopping at FOX primarily because of their ever-changing line of clothes. One you miss a clothing line at FOX, it's usually very difficult to get it back. In fact, FOX is probably one of the most fashion-conscious stores I know of.

Their clothes are always of good quality, and look bright and cheery. I bought a hoodie from there 3 years ago, and it's still in perfect condition and has not faded even a bit! The laid-back design of their clothes fit my fashion sense perfectly as I find it impractical to always have to dress up on our tropical island.

Expensive w/o sales

If anybody mention about going to Fox for clothes, I would only suggest them to get the hoodies and marvel collection t-shirts. Fox hoodies is really comfortable and soft to be worn during cold weather (of course not in Singapore) and their t-shirt is kind of comfortable for the weather here. I always notice their t-shirts for new designs. It used to mickey mouse and they recently changed it to marvel collection maybe because people are crazy over it. With all the ironman, hulk; captain America and Thor print of the shirt. It indeed attracts a lot of people to look at the shirt whenever I pass by their store.

Also, their fox kid’s corner is quite popular among parents. The shirts look extremely adorable on kids yet I think that the price is kind of expensive. Many who came to the store left empty handed. I couldn’t bear to buy some of the items here too. Way beyond my budget. If not, wait for the sales period, clearance sales or the Great Singapore Sales to purchase items that you need. I got my hoodie at 50% off during the sales period of $59.90 which I think is more worth it for a hoodie to be at $29.90 instead.

Comfort not style

Fox always gives off a very laid-back relaxed vibe. In my opinion, the brand focuses more on comfort rather than style something akin to Springfield or United Colors of Benetton. Expect boring back-to-school kind of clothes such as cotton tees, bermudas, hoodies, pullovers and the likes of that. The only section I like of their is the scarves collection they have. The scarves come in beautiful pretty colors and the best part is that the material used is of much higher quality than the flimsy scarves you find elsewhere. I find the Men's Apparel more interesting and Fox Kids offers great clothes for the little ones. At unreasonable prices, of course.

All in all, nothing special about this place. I would go only for their hoodies as they look rather soft and perfect for freezing cold classrooms.

not many suitable apparels for young adults, and definitely not a shop for the fashion conscious

I used to like Fox clothes, for its bright colours and cartoon images printed on its t-shirts. The jeans are rather comfortable as well. However, the cutting of the clothes did not suit me in the subsequent seasons and the materials used to make the t-shirts were thin and flimsy. It got harder to find suitable and nice clothing at Fox. The last item that I bought from Fox that I am still using would probably be a thick, comfy black jacket since at least three years ago.

Although the colours of the apparel still appeals to me, and I do go in to take a look, especially when there is sales, I hardly get anything from there. More often, the section that I take a closer look at will be the accessories. They do sell cute hairties that are better suited for children but adults will be able to use them as well.

The price of the items sold ranges between affordable and expensive. A jacket can be priced at $25, while a simple top can cost more than $40. The stores are generally empty, even on the weekends. Only during the sales period would there be more people within the stores.

Limited designs.

Fox is very popular with its brand printed tops and jackets/hoodies. Coming up with many different colours, perhaps it will give customers a wider range of options to choose from. However, will they really appeal to customers and make them purchase the items?

I got my first basic printed top from Fox, honestly, the material is very comfortable to wear and it's really suitable to be worn under the sunny weather. But after several wash, the materials turned bad in a way that it became rough and I could see small dots popping out of the clothes. 

The same thing goes to the jackets, they are thick, warm and comfortable, but the same issue is happeming after several wash. However, I did not really worry about that because I seldom wear the jackets out and even so, they are not prominent. 

Other apparels sold by Fox include dresses, pants, skirts and men's apparels. They are sometimes priced at a higher cost and definitely, I am not buying them at all. 

I would still recommend the jackets to my friends because they are really warm and comfortable. As for other items, you may want to get them during sale period.

Fox Tale

The Israel-based fashion chain is internationally renowned for its "FF" symbol. ( with one F upside down and creating a square ) Fox encountered severe criticism and even faced potential consumer boycott in Israel when the brand signed the Israeli supermodel Bar Refaeli. Founded in 1942, the brand's designs have evolved much throughout the years adapting a more modern and trendy look from its classics.

The brand usually has collaborations with special themes or seasonal specials that feature the latest designs. However, to my dismay the fox designs have actually become worse than they initially were. I very much preferred fox back in the days when they had less odd patterns and more normal looking clothing. Today the clothing either have a little too much of something or a little too much of another, which just generally down-grades the entire look of the clothing. Fox has also adapted a more trendy way of displaying its logo instead of the classic FOX icon. The price range is bearable for the quality of the clothing but I am sure that I would not compromise on the designs. On a brighter note, the kids range do still produce relatively nice clothing that are suitable for the young!

below-average designs

FOX is not my cup of tea (or animal). I have entered the shop a few times but I always leave empty-handed. This is an unlikely behavior from a shopaholic like me who tries her best to justify every shopping purchase. But really, FOX has nothing that interests me. The designs are poorly-cut and badly-designed. I don't like halter neck checkered dresses with flower prints. It is just ugly. They have tees with grammar errors occasionally. Not sure if they are doing it on purpose or its part of the design. Either way, I am out of it. Prices for the apparels are on par with other stores like Pull & Bear. Some designs are actually more expensive than the prices of clothes sold at popular stores like H&M and F21. Why would I want to buy anything here?

If you have to buy anything from here (maybe you have a gift card or something) then I would recommend you to buy the hoodie. Their hoodies are priced at $39.90 or $49.90 and the hoodies are really thick! It's a functional hoodie that you wear to keep yourself warm. Not those thin hoodies that serve no purpose. Other than that, I absolutely do not recommend you to buy anything from here. Not exactly cheap and poor designs. You are better off shopping at somewhere else. Anywhere, just not here.
