Great clothes. If you catch the sale after Christmas, you will get a lot for your money!! Be there when they open!
I visit Neilson's at least 5 or 6 times a year and have never had a salesperson help me or ask if I need assistance. They stand around and chit chat a lot. If you can overlook that, it's worth a trip.
One of the friendliest stores you will visit and a must-go if visiting Oxford. Full of great men's brands like Vineyard Vines, Ralph Lauren, Tailorbyrd, and Hart Schaffner Marx. A great mix of both traditional/preppy and trendy items. Make sure you visit for the 2 semi-annual sales in July and after Christmas where literally the whole store is 50% off.
When I went to Nielson's they were having a great sale on their summer clothing. If you can catch a sale, it's well worth the trip- they were practically giving the clothes away. I found their clothing to be really unique, but still classy and fun.
However, the sales people were not overly friendly. No one offered to help me, even when I was walking around with an arm-full of clothes. No one asked me if they could put my clothes aside in a dressing room for me, which would have been a big help and allowed me to look at more things (and probably buy more!).
