Bonobos has become of those companies that started small, but has grown into a brand that every guy (in the US) has at least 1 piece of clothing from. Their direct-to-consumer clothing offers great styles, great fit and great customer service. They’ve got something to sell to every guy looking for great, well-made clothing. Their prices aren’t as affordable as J. Crew or Gap for basic chinos or sweaters, but you’re not wearing clothing that is the same as everyone else’s. They run occasional sales from time-to-time, but sizes sell out fast. We’d recommend their swimsuits, short-sleeved shirts, and dress shirts for the quality and different patterns every season.
Amazon’s transition into menswear in 2014 has proven to be a great little spot not just for basics, but trendy, higher-end clothing. Just like its parent, East Dane, customers are able to use Amazon Prime. Members can actually transfer their benefits, such as free three-day shipping and returns, Saturday delivery, and global shipping that are either free or extremely reasonable in cost. One of the best things about the site is the minimal and user-friendly design. Searching for a deal isn’t a pain. They have a clearly marked SALE section, which has everything from basic Tee’s to Mackintosh coats. They even have a section for collections of things, such as editors’ picks, active wear, what to wear to work, and/or gifts.
Hickoree’s is a unique, online-only menswear store that caters to a specific type of guy. Those who are looking for vintage-style tee shirts, authentic Japanese made denim, or crafted leather goods, will be thoroughly satisfied. If you’re a fan of the menswear brand, “The Hillside”, you’ll find a lot of their products on the site. That is because the owners of the brand run Hickoree’s as well. The products are absolutely beautiful and most likely from smaller brands that not a lot people know or wear. Clothing on the site is expensive. We’re talking $68 for a hand-dyed scarf. For some, this is a little too steep, for others, the idea of having something unique is appealing. Poke around when they send out a sale email because they have really decent deals on products such as socks, home goods, and canvas tote bags.
Similar to Hickorees, the customers of this online men’s botique are looking for items like leather boots, unique short sleeve shirts, and technical rainproof outerwear. Based in Texas, they carry a large variety of men’s rustic and refined clothing, which make them a must-stop when in the Lone Star State. Browse through their vintage section and you’ll find items like men’s jewelry, home decor, one-of-a-kind art and vintage leather jackets. It’s truly a great place for items with history. They run sales often, but again, these are some higher priced items that may be out of the price range of some so tread lightly.
Over the past few years, Uniqlo has been a go-to powerhouse in men’s style. Their large range of t-shirts, jeans, blazers, and outerwear has made it one of top stores to stock up on wardrobe basics. They also frequently collaborate with small menswear brands and popular pop artists. One of the greatest things about Uniqlo’s clothing is that it usually is very classically targeted and also come virtually logo free. They also offer one of the largest ranges of colors in most of their clothing items. For people looking to build a larger wardrobe, solid socks, wool/cotton cardigans, polo’s, chinos, and shorts are some of the best, budget-friendly options you’ll find online. You can spend $100 and put some great looks together.
Once know as, “that store you avoided when going to the mall” has now cleaned up their act a bit. Urban Outfitter hasn’t totally dropped the pop-culture tee shirts and now offers some great looking, stylish casual gear for the price. Footwear brands, like New Balance, Eastland and Clark’s, are regularly are on sale. One of the big things we love at UO is their now emerging At Home section. Picture things you’d see at Anthropologie with your girlfriend, but at a cheaper price point. While some items might not be as masculine, they offer some great lighting options for desks, unique furniture, and one of kind pottery perfect for a plant. Every guy should learn to keep a plant alive!
First started in 1996, selling vintage Levi’s, NEED SUPPLY CO. now offers a wide range of men’s products by small domestic brands and abroad. While geared towards the work wear crowd, Need Supply still offers some unheard of footwear, raw denim and even men’s jewelry. They run sales frequently and you can usually get a quality pair of chinos or men’s shorts for decent price. If you’re tired of the same J. Crew or Banana Republic chinos that everyone has and you want to branch out, Need Supply Co. is a great place to try. Tread lightly. The fits on most of these brands tend to run classic and less fitted.
The cream of the menswear crop, Mr. Porter is the go-to destination for that high-end upgrade you’ve been waiting for. The beauty in the Mr. Porter brand far exceeds just the online web shop. They also publish online content that is geared towards lavish, high-end customers. They do a wonderful job on featuring interesting brands/people along with selling you on their hippest high-end men’s shirt. BEWARE, this is not a place to try and get a deal. Mr. Porter is for guys who’ve got money to burn. You’ll likely not find any products under the $75 mark unless you browse their gifts section.
Everlane is another online shop that sells quality men’s basics. Started in 2010, their goal was to be completely transparent on pricing and where your clothes are being created. They started with tees and sweatshirts and now offer a wide variety of men’s clothing. Everlane also offers some great bag options for guys at a great price. You can expect J. Crew style clothing with a bit more substance. Free shipping and if you’re in Manhattan or San Francisco, offer a 1-hour delivery service label, “Everlane Now.”
FRANK & OAK
The once “sign-up only” Frank and Oak recently rebranded to a more buyer friendly model. Think of them as a more mature Urban Outfitters. Another basic’s stop for a guy’s trying to build their wardrobes. One of the biggest perks of Frank and Oak is their budget friendly suiting. There’s a reason guys like Sabir from Men’s Style Pro frequently wear F&O blazers. They are fitted well and made with great fabrics. Overall, Frank and Oak could be a great up-and-coming brand to watch over the next few years.
