Convenient, one-stop shopping for those who want pieces with long shelf lives. – In Short
Epitomizing office casual wear, Banana Republic started out as a small vendor of safari-inspired clothing before it was purchased by the Gap in 1983. Since then, it has grown into a brand-name behemoth that one-ups the Gap in quality, status and price--but not necessarily creativity. The core of the collection is constant: versatile staples such as khakis, button-down shirts, denim, T-shirts and jackets in solid, organic colors. Lengths and fabrics change slightly according to the season. Some stores have expanded into bedding, fragrance, bath and beauty, and home-furnishing lines.
Don't See What The Fuss Is about – BANANA REPUBLIC is a great store don't get me wrong, but theres little difference between each of the clothes. It looks like im looking at the exact same shirt just a different color. Sometimes youll make a good find.
Beautiful, well-priced clothing – Banana Republic has great clothing for work and weekends and great service to help you find what you need. Inexpensive options for work and evening. BR features many classic styles, as well as new, hip pieces from season to season to help update your wardrobe. The flagship store is the ultimate BR, with the best and most complete selection and wonderful service. It even houses a concierge desk which provides a coat check, cell phone charger and information on attractions in San Francisco.
Thumbs Down – Banana Republic is a synonym for snottiness, pretentiousness, and is only were people who want to look like the "crowd" go to shop. Why be so bland. Go shop at stores that actually provide service and finer clothes. Get an individual "look" and not the cookie cutter look.
a necessary evil – we're all well clad our silk sweater sets and of-the-moment khakis thanks to banana republic's cheap and speedy knockoffs of last season's italian designers. every town has a fashion look, and banana republic's uniform is ours.
Black and Tan Snooze – The world's most boring clothing! Anonymous, overpriced and badly fitted black and beige for office-drone clones. Plus, the layout of the store is very awkward, with no real reason for why it's laid out the way it is. Lots of rooms of identical BORING clothing. Wake up, muggles!
