Shopping online is my go to method. Most people don’t have the time or the energy to go into a store, deal with a sales person and try clothes on. I find it much easier to browse online, collect my favorite pieces instantly and narrow down choices in my basket without having to deal with the pressure of retail hours. Instagram has been a gateway for discovering all kinds of brands from all over the world. Just clicking on a fashion or style related hashtag can lead you to some unique menswear finds. I’ve gathered up 5 of my favorite online menswear shops worth the browse. These styles range from utilitarian, sports luxe and basic essentials.
I came across this UK brand a while back on Tumblr. ADYN offers everyday basic essentials each season in addition to experimenting with high quality fabrics in neutral tones. I’ve purchased a few tops that I kept in heavy rotation and always made a statement with my outfits. Price points range from $70-$300 on average, but they often offer promotions and sales which is a great time to take advantage. Goods arrive from the UK which usually takes up to 7 business days. Customer service response is quick and helpful. Shop ADYN here.
I discovered this brand while browsing @nclgallery on Instagram. Founded in Paris in 2016, Lownn takes their inspiration from urban culture and pays attention to cuts, details and fabrication. The collection offers a creative and experimental approach to each garment that gives off a minimalistic look. Made from Italian wool, cashmere and mohair, each unique piece offers fabrics that drape naturally and holds up a structural shape. Since each piece is made from high quality fabrics in limited quantities, price points range on average from $100-$500. Shipping to the U.S. takes around 6-10 business days. Shop Lownn here.
