15 Affordable Online Clothing Stores for Stylish (and Savvy) Guys
Shopping on the internet is full of infinite possibilities. You can go to any store you want without leaving your couch, standing in a line, or facing any other real human being at all. It's a delight! It also means you can access deals and discounts as soon as they're available. And, of course, you can shop around without having to actually move around. With all that in mind, here are the 15 affordable online menswear resources every guy should have on his radar.
Yep, the same spot you can rely on for everything from paper towels to pet supplies also has a full-blown fashion offering. We're not just talking about basics, either (though the in-house Amazon Essentials line is pretty great). You can score some serious style from well-known brands on Amazon, and you can often find a great deal while you're at it.
H&M is one of the most important cheap brands out there. If it's not already your go-to place for last-minute basics, allow it to be. It makes a variety of products that tend to be either a foundational wardrobe piece or something hyper-trendy—both of which are great to have cheap versions of. Plus, it's starting to blow out its more timely sections, like genderless and sustainable clothing.
OK, J.Crew isn't always cheap, but it can be. The brand often has very good sale offers, from seasonal clearances to cart discounts when you spend a certain amount. It's still the best for your core items, like a variety of colored tees, chinos, and oxford shirts. Plus, the shoe selection tends to be a sleeper hit.
Don't fear the youths in Urban Outfitters; it's still one of the best places for affordable clothes. That's especially true if you're looking for stuff that's on trend but not necessarily trendy. Meaning? Stuff like the latest from Tommy Jeans, Champion, and Stüssy—brands that are great for wearing right now, but that you won't have to retire at the end of the season. Come here for graphic tees, everyday denim, and sweatshirts.
Nordstrom Rack is one of those places that's best served for when you want something new for your wardrobe, but you're not necessarily tied to what that new thing might be. The selection can vary, but it can house many hidden gems, from denim to formalwear to winter outerwear. It's also a great place to continuously check for footwear deals—you never know when your favorite shoe might drop in an alternate color.
There is no shopping trip like a Target shopping trip. Not only can you get any item you need, but you'll have a plethora to choose from. The same goes for the clothing selection. Come here for your wardrobe foundational pieces: basic tees, workout clothes, socks, underwear, and, a hidden gem, swim, and beachwear.
Asos offers a great mix of cool brands and in-house products, and it's all at a great price point. Everything feels current and fresh, so it's especially good for trend or statement pieces that you're looking to test out. Don't sleep on the different sections, either—both the shoe and suit departments are especially well-stocked. Plus, the brand recently launched its own activewear line, which is much more affordable than most.
Buck Mason sells basics with an edge. Its plain T-shirts and sweaters are staples, offering a wide range of colors and slight variations on fits for your personal taste. It's the kind of place you go when you want one shirt in 10 different styles. The outerwear selection is tightly curated, but very good. The leather jackets are seasonless highlights.
The internet loves Everlane, and so do we. The brand does elevated basics so well, and its transparent pricing makes it hard to beat. Head here for pocket tees, $100 cashmere sweaters, jeans, and transitional outerwear. If you're in the market for accessories, Everlane's twill backpacks and duffles are very good.
There is always room in the world for inexpensive jeans, and especially ones as comfortable as DSTLD's. The brand makes shopping super simple, offering four fits in a range of washes—all for less than $100. The brand also has some great basic tees, denim shirts, all-black accessories, and serious leather jackets that look much more expensive than they are.
Mott & Bow
Shopping at Mott & Bow is just easy. The color palette—mostly white, black, and shades of indigo—is timeless, and the clothes themselves are very comfortable. Denim is the core of the collection, but there are also great button-fronts and tees to create a foundation for your wardrobe. And the best part: The brand has a home try-on program, where you pick two sizes when you buy your first pair of jeans. You send back whichever doesn't fit, free of charge.
River Island is a UK-based brand with a lot of High Street influence. It's a great place to look for trendy, modern pieces with a slightly European influence. The retailer also has a wide variety of shoes, for whenever you're looking for something fresh but don't want to spend a ton of money. And an especially great part of the site: the inspiration section. Get ideas for complete fits, dressing for a certain occasion, or just to kill time.
Ah, Uniqlo. Where would internet shopping be without you? Uniqlo has a vast selection of basics, from great outerwear all the way down to socks and underwear. The brand might be known for its signature puffer jackets (they are indeed very good), but its jean selection is really one to take a look at. They're often on sale, range from stretch to selvage, and never a bad buy.
Topman has the same kind of European-inspired feel of an Asos or River Island, but it's slightly more curated. It's also not shy about taking a page out of the high-end designer playbook, and you can feel it in the cool, often bright, takes on modern styles. Come here for fun suits, cool track pants, and sweaters.
Buying a suit online seemed utterly insane, until the people at Suitsupply took hold of it. Yes, you should know your sizing before ordering. But once you do, you'll be set for scoring your occasion wear without having to step foot in a store. From interviews, to beach weddings, to full black-tie events, get all of your looks for polished events here.
