Are John Lewis clothes good quality?

John Lewis clothes are considered to be very good quality and reasonably priced. The multi-brand retailer and department store sells a vast array of products and has many items of clothing from other, well recognised and loved brands, but the in-house John Lewis & Partner labels should not be ignored. From main range 'John Lewis', to And/Or and Any Day collections, there is a lot of choice, with all three divisions largely opting for timeless styles that you can slot easily into your capsule wardrobe. 

When it comes to autumn/winter fashion trends for 2023, the brand has interpreted these into wearable styles with longevity, ensuring that any purchase can be part of your wardrobe for years to come.
