Your One-Stop Guide To Fashionable Clothes at Affordable Prices

Looking great doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg. With so many buying and shopping options available to us in this day and age, it’s relatively easy to find a bargain. As long as you know where to look, you’re sure to find a great deal.

Yet so many men struggle with the looking part. Nobody wants to resort to that cheap, nasty looking pair of discount trousers, but many are simply out of options. Luckily, there are quite a few simple ways for you to sniff out those fashionable, affordable fashion items. Here are a few of the best!

Mock brands

From a distance, can you really tell the difference between that £5 shirt and that £500 designer? Probably not. If that sort of prestige is important to you, then you’re probably best off looking at mock brands. This is basically an item that looks like a designer label, but at a fraction of the cost.

Most good clothes stores will sell them, and you can also shop online. Because of the competitive nature of the market, there’s near unlimited choice, so get shopping! A lot of sites will stock clothes for men of all ages, at low prices.

Scour those sales!

There’s a joke that goes around, saying sofa shops always have a sale on, 365 days a year. It’s not true, but it sure feels like it. The same could be said of clothes outlets, and while it may seem unorthodox, it’s not. The reality is, these clothes are marked up high to incur a large profit, so frequent tumbles in price are quite normal.

It’s just a case of knowing when, and where, to look. If you want big brands, warehouse sales are your best bet, which sell off designer labels from previous seasons. Additionally, many outlets run heavier sales at all the usual times, like Christmas and New Year. If you’re a student, keep that student card handy for some extra discounts!


Second-hand items have a bit of a stigma surrounding them. In reality, there’s nothing wrong with it. It’s an affordable way for you to get all the products you need, from tech to clothes. Take a look around your home, and I bet you’ll find a few second-hand items. So why not extend this to your fashion?

Maybe don’t buy second-hand underwear, but everything else is fair game. Being fashionable with no money isn’t a hugely difficult task. It just takes a bit of cunning. Scour your local charity shops for some nice-looking used items. They won’t cost you much, and you’ll look all the better for it.

If the internet is more your thing, then eBay is your first stop, offering the widest array of used goods on the web. Don’t be worried about slapping down the cash either; you’re covered by buyer protection. If you have a transaction go wrong, PayPal and eBay can refund you the difference. So you can go ahead and buy that tweed blazer safe in the knowledge that your cash won’t be wasted!

So, if you followed these simple steps, you’re well on your way to fashion heaven. Everybody wants to look good, so you’re not alone out there – and that’s why there’s so much choice. Remember, fashionable doesn’t necessarily equal expensive.
