Hi all, just thought I’d come by and ask you all where you shop for your clothes? I usually shop at the mainstream brands like H&M, but I am aware that a lot of people loathe the big retailers for lack of quality. Any ideas for where I should look to shop?

Obviously depends massively on your budget and personal taste but ill drop  some at all varying price points.
Low:
Uniqlo is definitely my number 1 ‘fast fashion’ retailer for a number of reasons. Good consistent quality with the fabric development and experimentation of much higher technical brands.
Mid: 
Cos Has great stuff at a slightly higher price point. Id suggest this more if you’re looking to mature your style and maybe experiment with new minimalistic shapes and styles. They’re also great for basics although I would still shop at Uniqlo for them over anyone. 
Weekday also offers something different at a slightly cheaper price point than COS. Great if you’re taste is more streetwear orientated but don’t want to ship the money at Designer brands.
High:
The Kooples are very cool if you’re into more a skinny, more rock n roll style although a lot of the stuff is very flamboyant and not too my taste I’m sure they offer some more minimal pieces also.
Although i can’t speak on quality Reiss has some great stuff on there website if you’re very much into the smart/casual crossover. Very ivy league. 
 
Hope there was some help there

Hello Fez!

I Recently traveled through the UK and found a bunch of great basic retailers below,

Uniqlo was great for basic essentials and are really trying to be eco friendly which is fantastic!
H&M was also great for a variety of basic essentials and also formal dressing on a budget
Primark very similar to H&M but better Mens range especially for adults

These were fantastic for basic items I stocked up as in Australia we only have on H&M in our city and its very dismal.
