Re: Inquiry about prices on clothing

I guess what I was trying to ask was:  Does the price determine the value or quality. Paying more for a sweater or pair of pants for instance will the product be better, last longer, wash better, etc.??? I see such differences per item by price. I can buy from Blair for instance and get items that I love.  If I bought a like item from the Q would it be that much better????Prices seem out of control. And I do buy from their affiliate Zulily which I fully recommend.

I think Q prices are high compared to most other retailers. Of course, there are higher priced brands and retailers out there, and I have spent what I consider a good amount of money on certain items. But, for where I normally shop, I can find similar things for less than what the Q offers.

 

I have been generally pleased with the quality of things I've purchased from the Q. As far as Q quality being better than an item purchased at another store, I couldn't say that. I know some Q vendors say the quality is better, but I have to disagree when I'm still wearing clothing I purchased years ago for $20 or less from other places.

IMO - The only line of clothing that QVC sold that was such a bargain for the designs and the fabrics for the price was Linea Dell'Olio.  And we know what happened to that.

In my opinion NO!  Price points really don't determine quality like it used to do.  As for value, that is subjective @bonnielu .  Quality and value are not synonymous with one another, despite these words being part of QVC's name.

Re: Inquiry about prices on clothing

The only clothing I buy at WM are the Time and Tru Jeggings. Best anywhere and haven't worn my ones from Chicos since I found these. The quality of most things I have from QVC was good...but still overpriced for what it is. Not everyone wants to joy wear a tunic and jeans/ leggings.

@DecorDiva, I also buy very little clothing from QVC since the Linea line is no longer available.

 

I don't find QVC's prices to be too far out of line for their products. I think the fact that I can find sizes and colors, not found elsewhere, at my fingertips to be of value to me.

 

@gertrudecloset, I don't find quality and value to be synonymous. Two different definitions of the words.

Yep, that's what I meant @Etoile308 I have corrected it based on your response to me.  I certainly don't think one thing has anything to do with the other for sure!!!
