Shopping for affordable fashion has transformed from an almost impossible task to bordering on too easy. With so many good offers flying around the only difficult part knows where to find the best balance between quality and killer prices. While another danger could know when to stop spending with so much up for grabs.
Men’s retail fashion is quickly catching up with its female counterpart as well. It used to be a challenge finding a good selection on the high street, but a more competitive industry offers up a wide range of options – both online and offline – and here are some of the best picks.
Fashion N Accessories
For the absolute budget option you can’t do much better than H&M. They’ve got basic clothing nailed at rock-bottom prices, but the Swedish-born retailer has developed its own sense of style over the years, collaborating with some big names in the industry.
Discount designer gear – Bluefly
Sometimes you want designer gear without paying those premium prices though – and that’s okay. Because retailers like Bluefly are here to offer you precisely that. You’ll find Prada, Gucci, Armani and other top names in its stocklist – all at affordable prices.
Shoes – Spartoo
If you’re looking for designer footwear on a budget then Spartoo is a great place to start. In truth, there are cheaper places to get designer shoes, but the sheer volume of its collection, combined with reasonable prices and regular sales, makes Spartoo a fine starting point.
Sunglasses – Red Hot Sunglasses
If you like the sound of designer gear at great prices then you’re well catered for when it comes to sunglasses. From Alexander McQueen to Ray Ban, Red Hot Sunglasses has the biggest names in the industry covered and you’ll be amazed at some of their prices.
For the latest trends – Zara
Spanish retailer Zara beats the likes of H&M and other high street outlets by getting its hands on the latest trends first. While most retailers need 6 months to get their stock ready for the new season, Zara can fill its stores in over 70 countries with the latest trends in roughly two weeks.
Watches – The Watch Hut
Like many of the options on this list The Watch Hut deals in designer stock at cut prices – as well as a whole range of cheaper options. Which means there’s a watch for every budget and you can grab some quality timepieces for surprisingly low prices.
Suits – M&S
It’s a sad fact that most men don’t know how to buy a suit and doing it the right way can cost you in excess of £1,000. The good news is you can get your hands on a quality suit by starting at M&S, who beat most high street stores for quality. You can pick yourself up a decent suit for £250 (just make sure it fits well around the shoulders and back) and then take it to a tailor for alterations.
to your budget for alterations and you’ll have yourself a £300 suit that beats most £700 options on the high street.
