We’re into a new season now and that means it’s almost time to change over the wardrobe and maybe add some new items. It’s been said many times here before, but you don’t have to spend a ton of money to buy stylish clothes. Quality is important, but sometimes our budget doesn’t allow us to shoot for the high quality. In those cases, it’s always good to have a handful of brands that you can rely on to deliver good style. So here are a few that I think are worth your money.
If you’re looking for very modern styles and great prices, Zara is a good spot. Their price points are easy on the wallet, and their clothes look great. Even though we’re shifting out of cold weather, their knitwear is solid. I’d also recommend some of their outwear. Many of their items tend to have unique little details that I gravitate towards.
If you find something you like at Zara, act fast. Because they’re one of the leading brands of fast-fashion, they turn their clothing lineup around much faster than most stores.
What I like from Zara: Knitwear/sweaters, polos, and outerwear
Goodfellow & Co.
Target’s fairly new menswear brand, Goodfellow & Co. was a welcome surprise when I discovered them last year (read my review here). They provide very good bang for your buck, and have some good looking items. You might find your best luck with tees and Henleys.
What I like from Goodfellow &. Co: Tees & Henley’s, and shorts
This is my favorite brand on this list. Uniqlo has been around for quite a while, and you won’t find a better bang for your buck brand. My best purchases with Uniqlo have been their polos. They fit better than any other polo I’ve worn.
But you can’t go wrong with any of their items whether it’s t-shirts, outerwear, or even underwear (which are very good). Also keep an eye on their sale section. You can find great items for cheaper than their already low prices.
What I like from Uniqlo: Polos, button-downs, tees, underwear, and outerwear. Basically everything.
Jomers is a new discovery for me, but I really what they have to offer. Their philosophy of “We never understood why menswear is overpriced.” tells you all you need to know about what to expect from their prices. While they don’t have a large selection of clothes, anyone looking for a basic/classic looking styles should pay them a visit.
What I like from Joomers: Button-downs, and dress pants
ASOS is more of a marketplace of brands, but they also have their own brands. ASOS will have every type of item you’re looking for and a very wide range of styles. It might be good to have an idea of what you’re looking for beforehand, because sifting through all of their clothing can be overwhelming.
If you’re the type looking for more cutting edge of clothing trends, or streetwear, this is a good place for you.
What I like from ASOS: Hoodies/sweatshirts, and jeans
Amazon has been steadily building up their in-house menswear brands and they’re worth keeping an eye on.
Banana Republic pretty much has large around the clock sales. While their quality isn’t what it used to be, there are still good items to be had at great sales prices. If you buy anything full price from Banana, you’re doing it wrong.
H&M is another obvious choice here, but you certainly get what you pay for with this brand. I’ve had some items last years, and others run their course much sooner. And like the aforementioned Zara, this is another fast fashion company, so items get cycled in and out fairly often.
