Do not buy at this place!! Last week I visited this place to buy a pair of Van Shoes which where prices at $56 dollars. After I tried them on and went to the check-out they appeared to be $61. So I told the lady that there was a price tag on the shoes of $56 and she now tried to sell the shoes at a higher price. Then I heard one of the most ridiculous stories "we do not charge you the price Van Shoes is advising us but we are pricing them up". After this incident I even sent an email to the company about this situation and that I was absolutely not happy with it, they just replied that it was their policy to not follow the advice price but charge a higher price even if there is the wrong price tag on the shoe. So if you want to pay too much for a product you should buy at this place, otherwise just buy it somewhere else.

This store appeals to many UC Berkeley students because it is the closest department clothing store. It is decent price, some things are cheap, others expensive (like their shoes). I like browsing around the store because they have all sorts of clothing (like any department store should be). I would recommend to all people of all ages (men and women).

PROS: decent priced, appeals to all ages
CONS: wish there were more signs of where things go (juniors section, dress)

This is really a warehouse huge. Like as big as Costco. They have tons of tons of clothing. The college clothes selection is huge too. Unfortantely, it's all high priced, but there is really nowhere that you wont find high priced clothing for a college. The staff is really indifferent, but you do not really want someone to be breathing down your neck when you're shopping. Their prices for regular clothes like shoes from Converse are reasonable.

PROS: Reasonable prices for regular clothing
CONS: High Prices for college logo clothing

This is a great story with tons of stuff especially if you are going to stop by to get some Cal gear. Their selection is large and the prices are a bit lower than that of the student store so be sure to check this place out before going elsewhere.

PROS: large selection
CONS: things could be a little cheaper

The Bancroft Clothing Company has a little bit of everything: mostly clothes, some shoes, school supplies, stuffed animals, and a lot of Cal clothes and souvenirs. I would guess mostly Berkeley students who don't have cars go here for its convenience--it's right across from campus. If you're in a pinch and need something (besides Cal stuff), go here for the convenience. If you have some time, take the drive to the city for more selection.

Bancroft Clothing Company has the largest (and best, in my opinion) selection of UC-Berkeley apparel, but they almost never have the sizes I'm looking for (nothing unusual--mediums or smalls)! Occasionally I've asked them to notify me when a particular size comes in, and they say they will, but then they don't. However, they still have the best selection in Berkeley.

PROS: Good selection
CONS: Lack of sizes

I'll start off by saying what really annoys me about the store. You have to check your backpack at the door. I know other stores in the area do it to, but it's really annoying that they make you take your backpack off before they let you enter. Besides that, they're a good store. The selection is really good. Everything from Cal shirts, pants, shorts, hats, stickers, sweatshirts, banners, and everything else you can think of can be found here. The prices are about the same as the other stores in the area. They also sell alot of other things besides Cal apparel that makes this store worth shopping if you're looking for non-cal clothes.

PROS: good selection, location
CONS: backpack policy

This store has a great selection of items for Berkeley students that are usually priced very well! Other items are okay if you know your prices, but I find the Berkeley prodcuts are my favorites and they usually have a good selection of them. A decent location too, so it's easy to go by in case you need something.

This store often has very cute clothes. Convenient for us Cal students as it's right across the street from campus, they also offer a wide array of Cal gear. From sweatshirts to keychains to window stickers, you can find everything at the student store and more for cheaper prices. Not only will you find Cal paraphenelia and clothes, a clinique store exists in the middle of the store in addition to a shoe store upstairs. Pretty convenient for college students who don't have cars or don't want to make the trip to SF on the bart.

Bancroft Clothing Co was a frequent shopping destination for me while a student at Cal. They're like a miniature department store, located right across the street from the campus. They carry trendy clothes for men and women, a good selection of shoes upstairs, a Clinique counter, accessories (including purses/backpacks, jewelry, etc), lingerie, workout clothes, and Cal gear. The Cal shop is sort of separated off from the rest of the store, and carries a good selection of Cal merchandise, from clothing to mugs to license plate frames, and more. Prices are average. But, if you're a bargain hunter, be sure to check out all the clearance racks in the back. You can often find some really good deals on still fashionable items back there.

Bancroft Clothing is cool because they have school related clothing as well as trendy, popular clothing and accessories that you would find in department stores like Macy's. The prices are pretty cheap and they have a big shoe selection too.

Directly off Telegraph Avenue is Bancroft Clothing Company. It's in essence a department store full of remainders and discount clothing geared toward the college-age connoisseur. Lots of cargo pants, jeans, backpacks, hats, sneakers, sweatshirt, etc. Fair prices and decent staff help. Park in the Durant lot or plan to street park far away.

This is the closest you can come to a department store in Berkeley. There is a very large selection of clothing and plenty of official Berkeley sweatshirts. The store also has a large stock of shoes and a relatively friendly staff that consists predominantly of Berkeley college students. Being located less than half a block from campus, who could resist?

This store I also remember going to with my daughter. It is a relatively large establishment with various type of clothes. They have both men and women's clothing. Various styles, and brand name designers. You can find just about anything in this store.

This is the closest men's and women's apparel store to the Berkeley campus. This store specializes in both men and women's apparel, as well as campus products. They have some unique Cal accessories such as baby Cal t-shirts and socks, as well as shot glass and scarf. Overall, their selection of products range widely. In addition, they also have carry Clinque products with special promotions many times a year.
