Joe Browns first came to my attention when I was round at my mum's house and noticed a small catalogue on lying on her table along with loads of other mail order bunff. As a person who doesn't really like to follow the crowd yet doesn't really have a set style Ireally liked what I saw.
The clothes in the catalogue contained loads of styles that wouldn't be available on the high street combined with some average kind of styles.
The catalogue contained both men and womens clothing, plus a few gift ideas.
I decided to investigate further and check out their website.
The website is very simply laid out and therefore extremely easy to navigate. It's not overly colourful but has eye-catching graphics and pictures.
The pictures on the home page are normally of their best selling items.
The products on the site have been broken down into 5 categories; Women's Clothing, Men's Clothing, Women's Bargains, Men's Bargains, Gifts and Accessories and adventure.
If you know the code or product name of an item you'd like to look at you can type this in the search box at the top of the page.
Of course the main categories are broken down into small ones to narrow down your browsing and making products easier to find. You can then sort the order by cheapest, dearest, A to Z, most popular, etc.
The adventure category is basically shows adrenalin experiences and gift packages, such as; Sphering, Airkix, Tank battle paintballing, etc
All the boring stuff and small print, legal stuff, info on delivery, returns and can be found at the very bottom of the homepage, but it's all vary comprehensive and straightforward.
The home page also has a tab, which says "visit planet Joe". Here you can find out more about the company, read blogs by staff and customers, listen to music,watch videos, upload pics of you and your friends having fun, download wallpaper and even learn skills for life.
The prices are the same as mid high street stores, such as Next rather than high end. everything is pretty reasonable and there is always a bargain to be had in their sales.
Before I checked out the website my mum told me she had been using the company for a few years and that she had no major problems ordering, with quality or returns. However she did warn me that the sizes weren't too generous and even though she's a perfect size 10 in most shops she had to order a 12. I took heed when placing my first order. First off I ordered a pair of funky jeans and a top, I usually take a 14 jeans but went for the 16 instead and I also sized up on the top. My order took 2 days to arrive and although there is a tracking device on the website I didn't bother as they emailed me the day after my order to say it had been dispatched.
When they arrived I was really glad I sized up as they are actually a perfect fit and great quality too. They've washed really well. The only slight niggle I have with the jeans is the second time I wore them I got caught in a storm and when I took the wet jeans off my legs were blue and it took me a while to realize it was off the jeans and I had contracted some strange disease or very poor circulation.
Since then I've placed more orders and have been very satisfied and lucky that I haven't had to return any items.
