I have little experience shopping online. How would I find places that have clothes that fit really well? thinking jeans, solid colored tees/button-downs, a bomber/hoodie. taking all suggestions!
- I discovered Stork undershirts on Product Hunt ~6 months ago and have been wearing them since. They offer (actually) fitted, tag-less undershirts at a good price. You can also subscribe to monthly, bi-monthly, and quarterly shipments of new shirts (because you'll always need to re-buy new ones).I just ordered my trial this week. Had been putting off my visit to a store to buy undershirts for far too long! Thanks for the recommendation, @rrhoover. Hoping this is my go-to solution. Pricing is not bad, especially if you order the 10-shirt subscription. Will edit here when I receive the trial shirt.
- I love Ministry of Supply and started with their dress shirts (mine formerly called the Gemini). This shirt has the same technical / moisture wicking / self-ironing capabilities you'd expect from high-end workout clothes. You can't dry clean them, which actually helps save money. Put it in the wash and then I air dry. They make fantastic pants, t-shirts, jackets, blazers, suits, etc. I recently bought two pairs of their socks. Their price-point may be higher, but it helps you limit your wardrobe to fewer pieces. They even have a program to donate something you don't use when you buy something. Ministry of Supply believes in human-centered design and I couldn't be more excited every time I see them applying design thinking to clothing. FYI, it's also for women now too.
- Bonobos is the perfect mix of everything— customization options, staples, bright + fun pieces (BIRD SHIRTS!). You'll find whatever you need, and you can make sure it will fit perfectly by choosing between the various fit options that they offer. Start shopping here and I can pretty much guarantee you'll turn into the best dressed guy in the room.
- Think of Uniqlo like a Japanese version of the GAP. I've been a die-hard fan of Uniqlo since they came to the US & opened a store in NYC - clean, high-quality essentials built for slimmer body types. They have literally everything - flannels, jeans, socks, down jackets, blazers, chinos, t-shirts, turtlenecks. They're usually six months ahead of the curve with regards to style - they started selling black down jackets the summer before everybody in my high school had one. I just counted, and 4/5 things I'm wearing right now are from Uniqlo. 😅 Maybe I'm just addicted.
- i LOVE Everlane- super honest and great company for solid basics you'll love.There's a few entries for Everlane here but they were one of the first companies in the "cut out the middleman" and sell direct to consumer. They started out with great basics but rolled out full men and women's ranges. They're like a more premium Uniqlo in the sense that they have classic shapes and fits. I can't speak for the comfort of men's shoes, but you could get some decent leather shoes on there at a fraction of the price compared to luxury shops.
