Fall/Winter 2013 menswear -50% picks from Menlook

There are some new items added to the Menlook sale, including this season’s clothes for -50%. Here are some that I thought could be a good bargain, from labels like Jil Sanders and Armani Jeans.

Hope you find these interesting, it’s quite early to put all these new designs on big sale. Menlook has free shipping worldwide, pretty nice, but returns are not for free. Note that I converted the British pounds to US dollars myself.

East Dane shows the standard of efficiency

East Dane was just launched in 2013, but already has one of the best online shopping services around. This can mostly be explained by the sister website Shopbob, which has been offering women’s clothing since 2000. Another big reason is the elephant behind these shops – Amazon. Amazon is the owner of both Shopbob and East Dane.

A good example of the efficiency is the offering of free 3-day shipping and free returns. The site even has Saturday delivery option in the US. The content on the website is pretty much limited to the items they are selling. They do have some style and gift tips, but that’s about all.

The website is a casual website for casual clothes. It’s good to stop by and check the items on sale, but not a website that has the latest brands or the most interesting newcomer designers.

Pros: free shipping and returns, good quality casual clothes, sale

Cons: no interesting content, a bit boring

Hypebeast from street to sneakers, from tech to art

Hypebeast is not really an online menswear shop, a better way to describe it is a blog and a online magazine with a shop. Hypebeast showcases the latest of street fashion with a special love for sneakers.

The Hypebeast store has a broad collection of brands, including the latest of street wear favorites from Paris to Tokyo. There is also a frequent sale that can go up to -80%.

hypebeaststore

The online magazine is a good source of latest on fashion, art and culture. The topics covered on the site are anything from arts to tech. They also have some cool interviews of artists and designers on the youtube channel.

Hypebeast is essentially an online magazine, so the store doesn’t have the full service with free returns etc.

Pros: Lots of content on online magazine, great selection, the lifestyle

Cons: No monetary returns, no free returns

Some sale picks from -50% @ Menlook

Menlook has a pretty wide selection in their midseason sale, just on the -50% range they have more than 300 items. Most of the clothes are from F/W 2012, but I guess the basic looks don’t get old that fast. Here are a few picks that I found good from the -50% price.

Paul Navy Shirt FILIPPA K

Filippa K shirt with Italian style collar for £ 48.88 / $ 78.21

Navarro Navy Cardigan JUST CAVALLI

JUST CAVALLI Cardigan for £ 155.13 / $ 248.20

Miky Blue iPad Sleeve BLEU DE CHAUFFE x MENLOOK

iPad sleeve from French Bleu de Chauffe, the color is specially made for Menlook. £40.38 / $ 64.60.

Menlook only has their prices in British pounds on their English website so I converted to US dollars myself with 1,60 USD/GBP. They ship worldwide.

Is Luisa Via Roma the best source for luxury?

Luisa Via Roma has a long history as a luxury clothing retailer, and it shows in their selection. The website offers clothes from many of the hottest (and most expensive) designers out there today. The website itself concentrates on the products, and there is not much other lifestyle related content. As a small extra they have some style notes, where you can find products that fit to certain style.

Butterfly Catcher

The website is not the source for affordable casual clothes, but there is often products on sale and the percentage can go high. Sometimes you might find some cheapish high end designs that you wouldn’t buy with the full price.

One big plus for the site is that it offers free shipping and returns. Makes it easier to check whether the price of luxury is worth its value.

Pros: good selection of designers, free shipping, frequent sale

Cons, price level, lack of content

Mr Porter – The gold standard of menswear online?

A brother website of the popular Net-a-Porter Mr Porter seems to have the best of all worlds. In addition to clothes, shoes and accessories they also have a home&tech section.

Mr Porter has their own lifestyle & fashion publication ‘The Journal’, which can be read on the browser.

They also provide style help, and while browsing through their selection a live chat window will pop up to help with your choices.

Browsing through the huge selections on some online shops, a shopper might feel exhausted when having so many options to choose from. Mr Porter is one of the best online menswear shops, because they have chosen only limited amount of items on their selection, and as a customer you can rely on certain level of quality. Mr Porter end of season sale is something to keep an eye on, the discount goes up to 80 %.

Mr Porter can be a bit pricey, you might find the same piece of clothing  cheaper in your local store or another website. But it is a good choice for a customer who values convenience over affordability. Shipping costs can be a bit high, but returns are easy.

Pros:

+ quality of selection, good service, easy returns

Cons:

– price, shipping cost (sometimes free on promotion)
