Pull & Bear: Trendy basics in Mohandiseen
34 Geziret El Arab St.
Thankfully, since our last visit, they’ve turned the horribly irritating trance music down a notch though we can’t say that their (lack of) customer service has changed for the positive. If you’re looking for a size that isn’t displayed or have any questions, it can take a load of patience to actually track someone down and receive an answer.
With or without the help, we were able to pick up the basic finds we were there for and consider it a success. Their jean selection was minimal with slim or skinny fits, if those are actually any different. For 250LE, the distressed slim fit wears true to size and with enough stretch to not fall into the jeggings category.
Other trousers available for females include brightly coloured, pencil cut chinos with pleats (350LE), which were available in a lovely mustard yellow shade. A cutesy printed pair of harem trousers will run you 350LE as well; a little high for their so-so quality and thin material.
Our favourite find, though, was a lucky one. After searching through a disorganized and tangled rack of mix and match swimsuit pieces, we stumbled upon a simple black bikini comprised of a bandeau top (150LE) and a plain bottom (99LE) that tied at the sides. The only downside was the sizing: running quite small, we opted for a large when typically we would have gone for the small.
Although we were there for ladies only, Pull and Bear’s new line for men was eye-catching, offering classic-styled sweaters and button-downs.
