Yeah, it's cheap. But it's also generic, and sometimes generic is good. You can get good plain t-shirts there, and their selection of accessories is awesome. It's hard to find cheap accessories like that... I actually rock a necklace and ring from H&M, and they haven't let me down yet.
Beyond the plain t-shirts and accessories, it doesn't have much going for it. But I definitely peek my head in there every once in awhile to see what they have, because they definitely have their fingers on the pulse of the early 20's fashion market--even if they don't produce high-quality couture.
I give H&M two thumbs up, because it doesn't operate under the pretense that it's any more than it is. You'll see just as many lame articles of clothing in a Diesel or Guess store, IMO.
Yes, Zara have shops all over the world. Quality is comparable to Mexx or better

all my exp. from h&m is from sweden, the mother-country of h&m=P
my belief is that the trendy fashion part of h&m is focused more towards the youth... that is the deal in sweden.. in the youth-area of the store, u can fins practicly anything... from popish hippie cloths to hip-hopish
soo basicly my messy discussion leads to this...
if u know what u want; h&m is great
if u DONT know what u want; ask, and they'll help u out
if u DONT want to ask; its is really difficult to find anyth. usefull=P
I don't think it's fair at all to compare H&M to Zara or Guess! H&M is like $20 for like a plaid shirt, or $20-$40 for pants, while Guess and Zara are like $60 and $70-$140. That's double! H&M has all the basic trendy essentials and often have some pretty neat stuff too (as some of you have mentioned). Awesome place for college students! Sure, go to Express during a 50% off sale and you'll find comparable prices and better quality stuff. But H&M's "regular" stuff costs closer to JCPenney's/Old Navy, which IMO makes it one of the best places to shop at that price point (their fancy jackets etc. are more aptly priced).
Although I might recommend Marshall's or T.J.Maxx over them at times, they are a really good deal! Especially for younger people.
EDIT: WOW this is an old post. MY BAD.
