The 17,000 square foot store on Regent Street covers two vast floors and feels like a posh hotel lobby, with its chandeliers, spiral staircases and plush chairs. The stock is equally elegant, encompassing a selection of refined clothes and accessories.

For women, there is a good selection of wardrobe staples and workwear, as well as chic eveningwear in the form of ruffled shirts and fitted shift dresses. The ground-floor collection has more than a nod to Burberry with its creamy trenches and gathered blouses, while upstairs are more youthful numbers, like silk printed smock dresses, nautical tees and embellished tops.

Pieces are often highly tactile, with lots of cashmere and satin. The modern city gent will also feel at home here, with a choice of casual chinos, V-neck sweaters and smart shirts in the basement. Back on the ground, the impressive array of moderately priced jewellery is well worth a gander, as is the collection of shoes. Styles here may not be hot-off-the-runway, but it’s a good bet for timeless style.

I am SO SO disappointed that banana republic is closing its UK stores... This is such a well priced, value for money (considering the quality you get) and classic brand that the UK retail scene will really be worse for wear (pun intended) when they eventually shutter their drawers ( I mean doors ) in 2017. The range of clothing is a huge plus, and they are all displayed in a very professional fashion (unlike your other high street labels that have extremely cramped stores and you are practically hugging another shopper just to reach for the last pair of discounted shoes you want. The staff are very well trained and professional, offering top notch service. I was looking to get a pair of brogues and because they did not have my size, they offered to check in another outlet and viola I got it! Have spent a bomb here the past few weeks, but in part it is because I am stocking up before they leave. You will be missed b2... (banana in pyjamas reference)

Given a cocktail as I walked in and had a leisurely walk around before buying a jacket and shirt with 30% off. That's how to shop.

I was suprised how poor the managers speaks to the staff. A manager with a name starting with C (in respect to employee that I asked and the manager I will not disclose the full name) was very rude to the sales Associate and didn't do much to help her. Very disappointing Banana Republic. I won't be coming back to your Regent street store again. This needs to be looked into.
