Clothes shopping can be a hassle for men especially when not knowing the right way to mix and match suits with ties, blazers with shoes, or knowing what to wear to your friend's wedding.
As an avid consumer of clothes, I don’t like to pay the whole price unless I have to because the clothing is necessary. Shopping for clothes does not have to be a hassle and let me give you three places to get deals on clothes
Online stores like Groupon, overstock.com, and Amazon are convenient to get your shopping needs done. Overstock, you can get your suits, shirts, pants, shoes, and accessories all in one site with sales going on all the time. Groupon can be a hit or miss at times. I bought a pair of suites from Groupon and fitted me well and still are holding strong after three years of wearing them. However, I do warn of getting on the email listserve because you will get tempted to shop all the time. Amazon provides great choices in accessories and suit selection. Before shopping online for a suite make sure you know your measurements and be ready to take your suits to a tailor to get it fitted correctly.
There is nothing wrong with shopping at places like T.J. Maxx, Marshalls, Burlington Coat Factory, or Ross. The bulk of my clothes come from such stores, and I am not ashamed of shopping at such stores. I once bought an Express blazer for $50 at T.J. Maxx and a NorthFace sweater for a whole heck lot cheaper than the original price. To get the best stuff from these stores find out when the new shipment of clothes comes in and be one of the first. Name brand clothing doesn't last that long at discount stores. And don’t forget to check out the clearance racks you might find something of value.
Every time I walk into a major department store I go to the sales/discount/clearance rack to find deals. I have been fortunate enough to find amazing brands at cheap low prices by looking at the clearance racks. I will warn to try on the clothes and look for any damages to the clothes because there's a reason why some of the clothes are on the clearance racks.
When it comes to suits, get your measurements from a tailor before shopping online. Have fun and look for the best deals.
How do you do your clothes shopping for the best prices?
