H & M
H&M was established in Vateras, Sweden in 1947 by Erling Persson. H&M (Hennes & Mauritz) now sell clothes and cosmetics in over 901 stores around the world.
They got the formula damn right
When it comes to H&M, it's purely the inexpensive price, variation, and fashionable clothing that lures you to the brand name. For women of all ages, men of all ages, people of all ages that want to go casual, smart casual, sexy, sporty, artsy, hippie, vintage, formal, semi-formal, lazy, corporate, or cute cheaper GAP look-a-likes for kids, you can find it all in H&M. No joke. The Lovemark of H&M is that it benefits YOU and OTHERS. You suddenly can afford to look good without hurting that bank account of yours. You suddenly find yourself indulging in a variety of options, rather than the usual nice stuff you find in more expensive outlets. You suddenly feel elated, happy, and excited about your life. They know their market and their people well. We're all different, and that's when variations come in very handy. You know that every time you walk in, you're bound to come out with a basket full of great stuff. When you seek a memorable shopping experience, you naturally think H&M. H&M dares to be different. They have a special formula that just works for them and for everyone. Some mysteries can't be solved, but whatever it is they got the formula damn right.

The solution even if you live in Milan!
You can think everything you want but H&M is the solution even if you live in Milan! In Milan, H&M shop is very close to Armani, Valentino, Dolce and Gabbana and others. They are great but they are not the solution...solution of what? Solution when it is Friday evening, it's 7 p.m. and you just finished work and you look not very fresh and beautiful and your spanking new boyfriend is coming to pick you up at 9 pm for a romantic dinner and a big party with all your friends that already know all your clothes and you really need a new great outfit...Go inside H&M and in 20 minutes you can get your solution without regret for your wallet!

Known for its inexpensive and fashionable clothing
Hennes & Mauritz AB (operating as H&M), is a Swedish clothing company, known for its inexpensive and fashionable clothing offerings for women, men, teenagers and children. H&M has more than 1,500 stores in 28 different countries and has more than 60,000 employees. The company was established in Vasteras, Sweden, in 1947 by Erling Persson, though at the time it only sold women's clothing and was called Hennes, Swedish for "hers." In 1968, Persson acquired the premises and inventory of a Stockholm hunting equipment store named Mauritz Widforss. Included in the inventory was a supply of men's clothing, prompting Persson to expand into menswear. Accordingly, he renamed the store Hennes & Mauritz, later abbreviated to H&M. Erling's son, became CEO in 1990 and Chairman of the Board in 1998. Today the majority of H&M's clothing is manufactured in China.

I applaud them and I respect them.
To all those wishing for an H&M in their town - expansion is on the way big time. Not only does H&M have well made, reasonably priced, fashion forward clothing for the entire family, the company itself is to be greatly admired for it's on-going corporate philosophy of encouraging a humble spirit, freedom to voice ideas and open communication between all levels of it's employees. This isn't often seen in such large (over 50,000 employees globally) companies. I applaud them and I respect them.

Hooked ever since
I had never heard of H&M until about a year ago when my sister was hired on as a manager to one of their stores. I came to visit her at her new job and have been hooked ever since. And just when I decide to move to another city, H&M decides to open one in my area! Grrr...

I love love love H & M! A pity its stores are not available in my country, because it's my must-go pit-stop no matter where I travel. Obviously, its mix of fashion panache at unbeatable prices have won a legion of fans like myself. Who could forget the frenzy of stilettos and crazed grabbing of garments at the launch of the Karl Lagerfeld collection? I hope a collaboration between H&M and YSL happens at some point!

Their children's clothes are awesome
I love H&M. Their children's clothes are awesome and cheap and they have cool accessories. Unfortunatly, they are not here in New Zealand (like most of the other good stores).

I feel the need to bring it everywhere
I am a man of Murses (Man-Purses) a.k.a bags that I can carry my essentials in. Last year I purchased an army green bag, and I feel the need to bring it everywhere with me, even when i don't need it and when it doen't match with what I am wearing. As my lovemark, this special bag acts as a shopping, school, and anything bag. It is definatly a part of me and I feel naked with out it. My name is James and I LOVE my murse!
