I don't think I've ever purchased anything here unless it was on sale. Although the quality is good, I think they are overpriced. The things I have purchased have held up quite well (mostly jackets and shirts), especially since I have boys. The salespeople are quick to greet you and are eager to help, which is a nice change from other stores I've shopped. Without my prompting, I have had them offer to look things up for me to see if an item I like can be found in another store in the size I need.
I am not all that impressed with Talbot Kids clothing. I love the way their clothing looks, but I don't think it is of great quality. I bought my daughter a cute pair of orange cargo pants there this spring that faded after a couple of washes. The coordinating shirt got tiny pinholes in it after a couple of washes, also. They do have nice holiday dresses and outfits, but again, I think they are overpriced.
