For those who complain of the quality of forever 21 clothing, I suggest you read the tags that tell you how to wash your clothes. If you're machine washing a "hand wash only, lay flat to dry" piece of clothing, you're just too clueless to realize you're ruining the clothes yourself. That said, the quality of their clothes isn't outstanding, but if you're saying that something you bought fell apart after two washes, it was very likely your fault and not Forever 21's.
Many clothing brands, expensive or cheap, have items that are hand wash only, and regardless of how much you spent buying it, if you are putting them in the washer with all your towels, they're going to get ruined. Sure, some of forever 21's clothing has threads that snap on occasion, but I've had Banana Republic sweaters that have worn and picked up MAJOR lint balls before even the first wash after purchase, and Dolce & Gabbana shirts that have threads that snap as well. At Forever 21 you're getting more than you paid for if you know how to take care of whatever you bought.
