- Cotton On
Cotton On are famous for fast-paced, cutting edge street wear for girls and guys. With the coolest product and easy on the pocket prices, they offer short and long sleeve tops, knitwear, cardi, fleece jackets, jeans, accessories and a range of shoes.
Also, their apparels are REALLY thin. Given the low quality of the material, it is really not worth it. If you are hoping for cheaper clothes from Cotton On in Malaysia because of the currency exchange rates, you can give up hoping. The prices are pretty much uniform across countries.
The service also needs to undergo a major revamp. Snobbish teens going about the same old routine of rearranging and folding clothes get annoyed when you ask them a question, since it seems to snap them out of their rigid routine.
The T-Shirts look deceptively value-for-money. They look too expensive and the designs are nice, but the quality of the shirt takes a nosedive upon first wash. Before you know it, the cotton gets thinner and thinner, looking more like clothes you should be sleeping in rather than wearing out.
The shirts, on the other hand, are much better. The designs aren't going to win any awards, but they do it simple, and they do it well. Plain shirts and simple checkered shirts are much lower and similar looking to higher-end competitors like Topman. More importantly, they last long.
I usually buy clothes at Cotton On during sales, which happens very often. Once, I bought a nice pair of shoes at RM5! They often have many nice dresses during sales at RM30-RM60. The shoes and sandals are nice too but too flat like Vincci's so I hardly buy any of them.
When there are no sales, I think the prices are quite high. A simple cotton dress can cost RM79 so I usually refrain from buying them except when I really love the design.
To me, the material itself also felt cheap. But some of the clothes are decent like their plaid shirts. I actually like some of their plain long sleeve t-shirts. There's something about a simplistic design that attracts me and to the least, it wouldn't cost a bomb in this place. Some of the workers here are pre-SPM students or post-SPM students which makes me feel a bit less confident to buy as I like to avoid any possible problems with my purchases. I know who they are since some of them are my juniors back in school. True story.
The clothes are perfect for our daily wear in this weather. The material is lightweight and most of the fashion style suited young adults well. This could be their staple wear to college and while hanging out.
Apart from clothes, they do have a range of shoes and some accessories for fashion conscious group. However, my favorite day for shopping here is during their sales period where everything is extremely cheap. You can walked out of the store with 4 piece of clothing that costs you not more than RM150.
If you're looking for trendy and affordable clothing, Cotton On is one of your best bet.
